MOONRAKER comes in for a certain amount of
flack from some fans, but it was a natural progression
for the BOND movies, which had started to reflect the
cinematic tastes of the times. For example, LIVE & LET
DIE echoed 'blaxploitation' movies, The MAN With The
GOLDEN GUN tipped its topper towards KUNG FU films,
The SPY Who LOVED ME dived into the deep in the wake
of JAWS - and Moonraker launched into space after
STAR WARS. Plus SHIRLEY BASSEY sung the
title theme. So what's not to like?
Incidentally, I don't recall the trailers lasting
this long in my local cinema. Weren't they much
quicker? Anyone remember?
