Die Another Day (2002, dir. Lee Tamahori)

Bond teams up with an NSA agent to uncover the truth about a conspiracy involving conflict diamonds and North Korea. Fourth, last, and least of the Brosnan Bond flicks. The central performance is good, but the script is a lazy series of puns and there’s an over-reliance on iffy CG throughout.

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977, dir. Lewis Gilbert)

James Bond teams up with a Soviet agent to track missing submarines. Swaggering, confident series entry which effectively (and not for the last time) remakes You Only Live Twice. Roger Moore on fine twinkly form.
