Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Film review — For Your Eyes Only

This is supposed to be the “back to basics” Bond but it’s really fighting against itself, especially Carole Bouquet’s Melina who is believable in context as a vengeful badass but has to exist in a bizarro universe of prat falls and sight gags and Roger Moore’s geriatric charm, or approximation thereof. I would totally watch a movie of Melina and her gang hunting down the people who murdered her family without 007 ruining everything. ★★
