And speaking of goddesses celebrating their birthday (although are goddesses actually born, or do they just rise up out of clam-shells in the surf?) tomorrow is the 50th of one Miss Nicole Kidman, and so we're devoting this week's "Beauty vs Beast" at The Film Experience to her with one of our cruelest competitions of ever. So make like consumption and click on over to tear these gorgeous lovers apart!
"First watch Moonraker, because it's Jaws in love and it's also really sexy. Then watch Octopussy because Louis Jourdan is the villain and it's also really sexy. RIP, Sir Roger Moore."
"Live and Let Die is amazing. It's the blaxploitation Bond! It has Jane Seymour as a virginal tarot card reader! It has voodoo! It has Yaphet Kotto! "
""Golden Gun" has one of the alltime best villains. Christopher Lee manages to be genuinely funny and genuinely frightening at the same time. Him just putting the gun together is a lesson in how to underplay a scene but still be the one everyone's watching."
"A View to a Kill is only worth watching for Grace Jones and the sheer terror Roger Moore is barely concealing during their love scene together. RIP my favourite Bond."
--- With the passing of Roger Moore I asked y'all to offer up one of his Bond flicks to watch - I've never seen a one! - and I got many fine suggestions. Which would you pick?
