You Only Live Twice

Happiness is a mysterious thing, to be found somewhere between too little and too much. ~ Ruskin Bond

The past few days have been extremely hot in the PNW. I’m blaming the heat on my slow post about this movie. The next Bond movie featured is You Only Live Twice. To me that implies Bond has some feline traits. Not all of them since he only has two lives instead of nine, but he does always seem to land on his feet.

First off, this was a fantastic and rather racy opening song. It is a pretty amazing tune sung by Nancy Sinatra.

And we have another great opening scene. How many space shuttles are kidnapped? Given the screen play was written by Ronald Dahl, it’s no wonder this was an interestingly fascinating movie.

My only beef was how subservient the Japanese women are portrayed. Then I realized I had no right to judge another culture by my standards or American experiences. This article has a great historical overview of Japanese gender roles.

I must admit, I love this car. I immediately added it to my Christmas wish list right after COVID-19 vaccine and more trophies for LFC.

Again, this movie had some fantastic stunts and villain lairs. I could go on and on with images. What are you waiting for? Go watch this movie already. If a space kidnapping, an evil white kitty, ninjas and piranhas doesn’t pique your interest, I’m not exactly sure what will. (Okay, I realize this might not be everyone’s cup of tea. If you have fun Friday night movie suggestions, pop them in the comments section.)

It was pretty toasty last weekend. We had pizza on the grill dinner outside on the back deck.

Burt joined us for the outdoor dining adventure. There’s just so much to explore!
