We’ve slugged through fifteen Bond films to get here – The Living Daylights. And it’s kind of worth it because Dalton is a good Bond and a sexy one, and the rest of the film is quite alright. It’s no secret to Bond afficianados that Dalton was pretty good, and present-day Bond Daniel Craig’s performance, praised by many, is quite similar.
It’s a nice relief, as a lady, to watch Dalton’s films. They aren’t as nasty about women as the rest of the franchise. And the Aston Martin is back!
You can join @VFD_crow & I in our commentary at #BondBFFs on awesometi.me. Better yet, get your copy of The Living Daylights*, pause the film immediately after the U/A logo fades, and press play again at exactly 6 PM PST according to this site’s clock.
See you tonight!
* (My advice? Buy a legal version, and download/torrent it to put the file on the computer through VLC or some such, so streaming internet doesn’t make viewing stutter.)
