You're probably aware that AMC has been running a Bond Festival this past couple of weeks. Each night, they run off a different film during prime time, then immediately re-run it in widescreen format.

I wish they wouldn't do this.

Last evening, I dozed off toward the end of A View to a Kill. After what I thought was a short while, I half woke up and cocked an eye at the tee vee. "Oh, good," I thought to myself, "Bond is still on. It can't be that late."

After a bit, though, I took a closer look and thought, "Hey, wait - didn't they already kill that guy off?" It was then that I realized we were well into the second showing and yes, it was that late.

As I say, I wish they wouldn't do this.

Yeah, 'cause it's always a good sign when you use the TV to know what time it is..

I saw part of it; thought it's not on my list to review for awhile.

It's thoroughly silly; like many in the later Moore period. Walken does OK as the bad guy; but Moore is positively geriatric.

Tanya Roberts can sure scream though. And I did like Grace jones as Mayday; I thought she had just the right psychotic edge.
