For many, Tomorrow Never Dies is the forgotten middle child of the Brosnan era. Neither as loved as Goldeneye, nor reviled as Die Another Day, and it doesn’t have Christmas Jones. A muscular, accomplished outing that certainly deserves the prefix 'action' before any mention of 'thriller', Tomorrow Never Dies is the moment Brosnan hit his stride and simultaneously fell over. Great chases, hissable villains and one of the brightest of Bond’s flames in Paris Carver keep this viewer happy. The over-explosive climax and reluctance to experiment hint at trouble ahead.
The villain: I think Rupert’s gonna sue somebody… The antipodean qualities of megalomaniac media mogul Elliot Carver have only grown more pronounced over time. He’s a fine villain in his own right, with that fine

Yesterday we watched Roger Moore grow older and older. Today we find his eyebrow at its least flexible before he morphs into Timothy Dalton. And again into Pierce Brosnan. But let’s start with the most nonsensical moniker of all.
A View To A Kill
(1985) dir. John Glen
Moore bows out, Grace Jones jumps off the Eiffel Tower and Christopher Walken is the villain. Breathe that in… Christopher Walken is the villain.
Does It Sound Like A Bond Film:
Indeed it does. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t have anything to do with anything, but it sounds Bond-esque. Mainly because it has the word ‘Kill’ in it. Try it. Even To Kill A Mockingbird sounds a little bit like a Bond film. Although I fear Atticus Finch would not have become a great literary hero if he’d
