Movie Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

There's something I'd like you to get off your chest.

The problem with watching Bond movies in succession is that they follow the same formula and only contain subtle differences. Thus, while watching a new one every now and then might be fun, watching them in succession makes them increasingly boring to watch.

Unlike On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) which had a likable Bond girl, this movie had Tiffany Case who I found excessively incompetent and annoying.

Q shows Tiffany his slots gadget.

This movie didn't start with the gun barrel opening.
Yeah! Sean Connery
"Yes, there is. There's something I'd like you to get off your chest." [...] "Speak up darling, I can't hear you."

Bond comes in looking for Whyte. Thumper relaxing on a rock.
I find it hard to believe Blofeld would actually be dead.
Aww. "Would you settle for a tulip?" "Yes."
How cheesy. "Say, you've played this game before." and "You handle those cubes like a monkey handles coconuts." She's annoying. Sexy, but annoying.

Bambi does some tumbling towards Bond before kicking him.
Hehehe. "I didn't know there was a pool down there."
Ha. Nice try at the leaning cops, but no good.
Yay! Gymnasts! Deadly gymnasts.
How does he successfully hold down two woman?


Haha. Wow. Bar-Bar-Bar.
AH HA! "Your problems are all behind you now."
What a misunderstanding.
Hahahahaha. She shoots and the recoil eventually sends her over.

Mr. Wint (left) and Mr. Kidd (right)
Wint and Kidd are on the cruise ship. I guess that means there'll be a fight.
Bond will return in Live and Let Die.
