Moonraker, B-

When Star Wars meets James Bond.

Previously I remember the scenes in outer space and with Jaws, but not a full screening. Most millennials are probably familiar from viewing on TBS holiday marathons.

There’s not as much camp as in previous film, luckily enough. Holly Goodhead is also a CIA astronaut, completely outclassing any other Bond girl intellectually. The final act is a big boss battle, reminiscent of MCU films and directly ripped from Star Wars, complete with a laser gun battle. My biggest complains stem from limited budget and redundant first act.

Oddly enough unlike the previous two screenings, this film was not enhanced. As a result, this looks worse than previous movies.

First screening July 10, 2022 on Amazon Prime.
