LAMBCAST #466 JAMES BOND FRANCHISE PART 1

by Jay Cluitt · February 13, 2019 · Featured, Franchise, LAMBcast, Podcasts · No Comments

The name’s cast, Lambcast, licence to discuss movie franchises.

We’re taking inspiration from ourselves, namely how we split up the Harry Potter franchise last year, and chopping up the James Bond movies into six chunks, which we’ll hit at a leisurely pace over the next year. We’re kicking things off with, somewhat predictably, the first four films: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger and Thunderball. Jay and Richard were joined by Will, James and Amanda to discuss the heroes, the villains, the kills, the exotic creatures and the rampant sexism peppered throughout the films.
