What if Roger Moore had carried on his role as Bond in an unofficial run of films, just as Sean Connery did with his return as Bond in Never Say Never Again...

How would his perfect hair stay in place in Zero-G? These questions are important.

One thing I dreaded back in 1980 was that I might hear someone say "Wow, that was great! I can't wait for Moonraker 2!"

Fortunately, that never happened.

...then people started referring to DAD as 'Pierce Brosnan's Moonraker.'

Now this.

Thanks, Cheski - and I was almost over it....

I've always seen Moonraker as "Roger's Thunderball."

Funny, I've always seen it more as his "Diamonds Are Forever"... mostly because it's not as boring as Thunderball.

Thunderball, boring?

Modern rock-video-style editing has a lot to answer for.

Either we're in for a renaissance where editing starts slowing down again, or the day will come when people's main complaint about QoS will be that it dragged from beginning to end.

I love Thunderball, think it moves well as it does now... but I still feel they could've trimmed off a couple of extraneous sequences. I've done my own edit, cutting it down to just over 108 minutes, but it's probably not Internet-viewer-ready... :-/
