From Russia With Love

Blog Update 008 – Bonding 24/007

Since beginning my James Bond film Reviews and Ultimate lists, I’ve noticed it has become increasingly hard to find each post amongst all the other posts. So from now on, each and every review and list will be linked down below for super easy navigation. Should make it simple for everyone to find what they’re looking for, and painless to share on your form of social media. I will make sure to keep each link updated on a monthly basis and all you need to do is continue to enjoy.

Ultimate James Bond List – From Russia With Love (1963)

The Ultimate James Bond List – From Russia With Love (1963)

Welcome back this month for the Ultimate James Bond List, this time covering the second entry in the 007 franchise, From Russia With Love. As I said last month, the entire point of the list is to allow anyone to compare each generation and actor against one another. Once all films are complete, it will make for some very interesting reading, so get ready to have your mind blown away…or maybe not. Either way, give it a read and let me know what you think.

If you would like to read my thoughts on the film itself, it can be found here.

No need for introductions to this review series, I’m sure you have read all about my love of James Bond already. If not you will quickly find out as I cover each official James Bond film entry in the coming months. This month, comes the review of From Russia With Love (1963).

From Russia With Love seems to have a very complicated plot. No idea why, because it could easily clip a few scenes from the film and be a very tight movie. I shouldn’t really complain though as the scenes which don’t further the plot prove quite entertaining.
