Quantum of Solace (2008)


I know, I know, you are thinking about how bad this movie is or, rather, how much you disliked it. So, thank you for even looking. It is riddled with shaky-cam, it feels rushed, and it is not crazy or campy (so bad it is good). Yet, it is brutal and at time very real.

Casino Royale (2006)


This week on Mission Briefing, we welcome a new Bond and say good-bye to an old one; RIP Roger Moore. Host: Nicolas Hoffmann Panel: Thomas, Matt P, Daniel, Jon

Die Another Day (2002)


This week we say goodbye to Pierce with one of the worst concieved Bond movies of all time, Die Another Day. From every cinematic misstep, including the American team of Halle Berry and Michael Madsen, to the “English Team” featuring Madonna’s fake accent and Pierce’s creeping Irishness, no wonder the franchise died for awhile. Host:

The World is Not Enough (1999)


The only thing I need to say about this movie in order to see whether or not you remember it is “Christmas Jones.” This train wreck involves the death of Hagrid, M being kidnapped, and some serious Pierce Brosnan jaw acting. Host: Nicolas Hoffmann Bond Experts: Jeremy, Daniel

Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)


Well, well, well. Fake news? Business taking over politics? Robotic cars? Bond in a BMW?!?!?! So fanciful! After the amazing Goldeneye, did Tomorrow Never Dies hold up? How did Pierce hold up? Will I answer any of these questions? Tune in to find out! Host: Nicolas Hoffmann Panel: Jeremy, Daniel, Jon C, Thomas

Goldeneye (1995) (Mission Briefing Edition)


Out with the oldish, in with the Irish! We watched Goldeneye for this Mission Briefing. I know what your are thinking, didn’t they already nostalgia all over this? Well, you are keen and thanks for listening! We did it again with the Mission Gaze! Pierce Brosnan replaced Tim Dalton! Nintendo 64 is mentioned, duh! Host:

Licence to Kill (1989)


So this film is, well, I guess, goodbye once again to another Bond. This we just got to know you! We end up with this film which starts with a wedding and ends with Felix Leiter being bitten in half. So, I guess paves the way for Joe Don Baker and Jimmy Bond, which is

The Living Daylights (1987)


This week we introduce the new James Bond. He is rugged, he doesn’t make quips, and it is a darker grittier movie. I know whate you’re thinking, are we talking about Daniel Craig? No, that’s crazy! They wouldn’t try to reboot the series is darker and grittier with a rugged James Bond doesn’t make quips

A View to a Kill (1985)


We say goodbye to Roger Moore with a fitting send off, sort of, well the send off that he deserves; too campy to live, but too campy to die. Host: Nicolas Hoffmann Panel: Daniel, Jon, Jeremy, and Thomas

Never Say Never Again (1983)


This week Sean Connery returns as James Bond to avenge Kevin McClory, spite the Broccolis, and remake one of the most boring Bond films in the Battle of the guys too old to pick up women so young! It competed against Octopussy (Roger Moore, 1983) so we watched Never Say Never Again! Host: Nicolas Hoffmann
