In this episode we discuss Austin Powers in Goldmember from 2002, a film that helps reinforce the Law of Diminishing Returns. is it good? No it’s not at all. But it’s not the worst film we’ve watched so far…
This episode, we talk about Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999), a film that is absolutely hilarious if you are a thirteen-year-old boy. Sadly, Thad and (especially) Carl are much older…
Groovy baby! Join us (briefly) in 1960s En-ga-land as we talk about Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997). It’s a film that has certainly dated since it came out but is one we still enjoyed.
In this episode, we watched 1996’s Spy Hard, so you don’t have to. While occasionally funny, this movie mostly made us question its casting choices, acting choices, and random non sequitur movie references. We also make a comment that you would only ever hear on this podcast.
Normally we have to go out of our way to find opportunities to talk about Star Trek in our Bond podcast. This week though, we are talking about the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode “Our Man Bashir.” So if you thought we’ve gotten overly nerdy before…
Embarrassing correction: Carl erroneously referred to the episode of TOS where Kirk is possessed by Sargon as “Yesterday is Tomorrow,” which isn’t even an episode of Star Trek. There IS an episode called “Tomorrow is Yesterday” but that’s not the right episode title either. The correct title is “Return to Tomorrow.” Carl is hereby docked 5 Geek Cred Points.
Remember when James Cameron made movies you wanted to see? We leave the world of James Bond for the first time to talk about True Lies (1994), a movie we feel safe in predicting will be more fun than Avatar 17.
The year 1967 saw two James Bond films hit theaters. One involved a plot to steal space capsules from a secret volcano lair and yet was somehow the less insane of the two. Sadly, we watched Casino Royale (1967) this week instead.
We discuss Thunderb…er…Never Say Never Again (1983): Kevin McClory’s answer to Octopussy. While neither film is very good, this one at least has Sean Connery, that glorious early 80s aesthetic, and yes, a whole lot of ass shots.
The Daniel Craig era of James Bond ends with a bang, quite literally, with No Time To Die—a film so delayed we’ve actually talked about it two separate times now. We now eagerly await the follow up: The Return of Dou Dou.
Several times in this episode we complain about a certain Bond movie not coming out. The same movie we talked about back in Episode 4. And the one we will also talk about next time. It’s almost as inexplicable as Bond’s lack of brain damage, Mr. White’s secret room hidden behind a plaster wall, or pretty much anything else that happens in this film.
