    Three words: yo-yo circular saw.

    Two more words: Tarzan yodel.

    One last word: Octopussy.

    Octopussy is the one with the Faberge eggs. Also, the one with that title. Also, the first complete Bond I ever saw. To me, it's a crystallization of the Roger Moore Bond formula, with a return to jokeyness and an approach that values set pieces over actual plot. There's a pretty aimless hour in the center of the film where Bond goes to India to meet his leading lady, who doesn't really get to do much except try to out-Galore Pussy Galore (complete with uniformed Amazons). With the amount of screen time Maud Adams gets, it's difficult to justify her character getting the title. The final set piece, featuring awesome stunt work on the fuselage of a flying plane is largely anti-climax with the real villain already defeated and dead. An Octopus cult? A Circus of Crime? Octopussy sort of wastes these high concept ideas too. And yet, as a collection of set pieces, it's fun and dynamically shot. 7 years 5 months ago

    Was the first Bond movie that i saw in the cinema and the Bond movie that i've problably seen the most. And also still one of my favorites.

    Great action, fun, adventure and locations. The Tarzan yell is completely terrible though....
