Reconsidering On Her Majesty's Secret Service, the Bond film that tried something different

Though it doesn’t come up much in casual conversations about “the best Bond movie,” 007 diehards will parachute from airplanes, somersault off ski jumps, and fly into you with goofy little jetpacks to defend On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The 1969 entry is most often remembered as a footnote in decades of spy…

MGM and Fox being sued over incomplete James Bond box set

Buying a “complete” DVD box set of a movie series that might never end, like the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Star Wars, is kind of a weird idea, but you’d at least expect a “complete” box set to include everything that had been released up until this point. That’s the assumption a woman named Mary Johnson made when…
