Roger Moore’s take of Ian Fleming’s narcissistic hero James Bond is likely topped by better interpretations from 007’s old and new. Yet the charmingly fluffy Moore holds a soft spot in my heart. One of my first clashes with the generational gap between my dad and I was over Roger Moore. He loved Sean Connery as the suave spy, and only saw Moore as the T.V actor from “The Saint.” “How could there be another Bond?” I was a confused 5 year old, still innocent to the grim realities of recasting.

One can almost feel their life vaporizing over time. How do you have time for such complex thoughts and realizations? Easy. Watch this movie. We dare you to say that your mind won't wander every which way, but the central plot.
