Moonraker (1979)

I was expecting a “James, I love you to the moon and back” but was sorely disappointed. The final Roger Moore movie of the 70’s, this one takes a very sci-fi approach. There is even a very Star Wars-like fight towards the end with laser guns and everything. Roger Moore once again, still hasn’t been in my good graces. I loved the name of Dr. Goodhead, but as far as Bond girls, she is also kind of forgettable. Drax was kind of a good villain, especially his name sounds cool… but even he didn’t really show up on my radar of interests. The plot just felt very adrift in space. I was happy to see a return of Jaws though. He’s great and he finds himself a cute little counterpart too. Where’s Timothy Dalton when you need him?

69/100
