Marathon fever: The Definitive Bond marathon arrives!
As most of you know already, Between the Seats is driven primarily by marathons on specific genres, directors and franchises. We already have two marathons cooking some serious heat right now (Shootout at High Noon and Shaw Brothers), but I think we can fit in a third.
Last summer, over the Filmspotting message boards, a few members (one of them being none other James Blake Ewing, who co-hosts the Lambcast sometimes) and I began a James Bond movie marathon. We called it the Definitive Bond marathon because every single film, including the non-EON entries, would be under review and because we felt determined to be as thorough as possible in our respective articles. Summer 2010 saw us review most of the Connery films, but our schedules, for work, school and such, changed and the marathon when on a significant hiatus, until this week. I shan't hide my love for the 007 franchise. It is my favourite of all time, ever since I was a child. There is something indescribably great about James Bond and his adventures. In the spirit of sharing, I thought I would also publish those reviews here at Between the Seats. What were exclusives to the Filmspotting message boards (have you been there lately? It's a great place) will now be shared with all my readers.
Today, the first entry to appear at Between the Seats, is, ironically, a non-canonical Bond film, Casino Royale from 1967. Stay tune for more!
