Live And Let Die Review


Good
A true guilty pleasure among Bond films. Who can forget a young Jane Seymour as Solitaire, a psychic held captive? Or Clifton James as Louisiana Sheriff Pepper, the most colorful character the Bond series has produced? Or Tee Hee and his mechanical arm? Or Geoffrey Holder (the voice of 7-UP) as the evil Baron Samedi? Or the best theme song ever (by Paul McCartney and Wings)? Certainly not me, though I had to be reminded that this was a Bond-gets-drug-smugglers story. But the early-'70s pop culture exudes throughout this flick. It's certainly a unique entry into the Bond oeuvre (not to mention the first appearance of Roger Moore.)

Annie Review


OK
Looking back, why wasn't I scared to death of Annie? Most of the movie featured doe-eyed, orphaned girls either getting abused by a boozehound or doing manual labor. It's part of the movie's charm that I was able to forget such things as a five-year-old and remember the songs.

Oddly enough, the songs are the only memorable parts of Annie, the lavish 1982 John Huston musical. Six-year-olds who see the movie now are sure to disagree, which is the way it should be.
