Bondathon Part 12: The Man With the Golden Gun

Part 12 of my Bondathon Movie review: 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun, starring Roger Moore and Christopher Lee. This isn't one of the best (in fact, it's probably one of the worst), but I still kinda like it for some reason:

For some reason I've always been a huge fan of this one. I know it gets a bad rap, but I've always found it to be one of my favorites.

I wouldn't say it's one of my top favs but it's pretty good. Moore is always good and I do like the villain, although that golden gun looks like it would explode upon firing.

i dont think a golden gun would even work...maybe a gold plated gun??? gold bullets wouldn't be very good either (gold is pretty soft)

i hardly remember this movie however it is the only Bond book i've ever actually read and it was pretty good.

also the guy with the golden gun was suspected of being gay (in the book) because he couldn't whistle...like it was a well know sterotype about homosexuals that they can't whistle? maybe because they can't whistle at sexy ladies turns them gay???

Does not being able to whistle have something to do with their lisp?

I don't remember much about this film except for liking Christopher Lee. I do think he was a great choice for a Bond villain. Too bad, I guess, that he wasn't a villain in a better film.

Kinda cool that Christopher Lee has fought Gandalf, Obi Wan Kenobi, and James Bond. He should be the villain in the next Indiana Jones movie and the next Star Trek movie.
