For the past 30 odd years, I've long understood that THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS is supposed to be "better for you," in terms of BOND films, and certainly versus the Roger Moore outings.

I just find it duller than dirt.  I only recall sitting through the entire movie once, and for me, it was a long, hard slog.  I've always preferred LICENCE TO KILL, where at least Timothy Dalton seems to be enjoying himself a bit more. 

(Plus:  More memorable Bond women!)

I did my Thanksgiving essentials over the last week:

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES (1987)

BROADWAY DANNY ROSE (1984)

THE LAST WALTZ (1978)

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (1995)

And for no reason related to the holiday, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK -
Paramount Network runs the Indiana Jones series this time every year and I'm
a sucker for Indy.

A VIEW TO A KILL is such a shitty movie that it literally broke your bluray
player!

It really is one of the few unwatchable Bond movies in my book. Just dreadful.

Ha! I actually haven't started it yet.

The player started turning itself on and off spontaneously. Oddest thing.

Although A VIEW TO A KILL only came 12 years after LIVE AND LET DIE, poor Roger Moore looked like he had aged at least 20!

I'd agree with all that Petter said about the film. Everything's a dud in that film. Bond goes to Ascot is in theory not a bad idea for a little episodic part of movie, and nice to see Patrick Macnee in a Bond film, but the franchise was by that point in dire need of some fresh blood. They got that casting wise, but stubbornly persisted with John Glen as director until the franchise ground to a halt with Licence to Kill.

Shit. Tim, I totally didn't realize what film you were referencing. As a
matter of fact, it was while watching the end of it that my troubles
began!
