You Only Live Twice

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.

Before the review begins, allow me to tell a little story. You Only Live Twice was one the first James Bond films I ever remember watching in full. I feel it only fair I relive my memory. I remember in 1999 in the months leading up to The World Is Not Enough cinema release, all the James Bond films were being rereleased on VHS. Yes, I know VHS. DVD wasn’t as big at the time but it was beginning to take off. There I was on my lunch break from work looking at the wall of all James Bond films. The two that stuck out most were The Spy Who Loved Me and You Only Live Twice.
