What’s On NOW!?!: “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” (1981) Starring ROGER MOORE As JAMES BOND 007!!!

The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

That’s How I Categorize This Flick…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(1981)

…Starring…

ROGER MOORE

…As…

JAMES BOND –Β  007

…In What Would Be His Fifth BOND Adventure.

They Say The Third Time’s The Charm…

…And For ROGER

…The Third Time Was More Of A Staple-Point In The World That Is JAMES BOND.

His Third Adventure…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…Really Cemented ROGER As BOND.

It Was His Best To Date…

…And The Best BOND Adventure Up To That Point.

I Loved It.

And Then I Saw This One…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And I Was Totally Sold.

It Is…

…By Far Far FAR…

…The Best BOND Of Them All.

At Least…

…In This Blogger’s Humble Opinion.

I Honestly Don’t Know What All To Say Here.

I’ve Been In A Decent Mood…

…I’ve Just Felt Like Arse.

What More Can Be Said?

I’m Just In Pure BOND Mode, Today.

I Have All Of His Adventures On The DVD…

…But Only A Few On The Blu-ray.

I Only Purchased The Ones I Love The Most…

…And That Were Available At The Time.

Mainly…

…Those Available Were…

PIERCE BROSNAN

BOND Adventures…

…Of Which Only One…

GOLDENEYE

(1995)

…Is On My Target List.

I Simply Love…

GOLDENEYE

…Though That’s The Only BROSNAN Flick I Can Honestly Say That About.

Anyway…

…I’m Going To Get Back To Watching…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And Once It’s Over, I’m Going To Watch…

THUNDERBALL

(1965)

…Which Is My Fave Fave From…

SEAN CONNERY

!!! !!!

I Know Everyone Says…

GOLDFINGER

(1964)

…Is The Very Best, Especially Of The CONNERY Flicks.

BUT…

…I Tend To Disagree.

(Of Course)

To ME…

THUNDERBALL

…Is Another Of Those That Is By Far Far FAR The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

I LOVE Me Some…

SEAN CONNERY

…And…

THUNDERBALL

…Is My Utmost Favorite!!!

ANYWAY…

…’Tis Time For Me To Kick-It-Back And Enjoy My Flicks.

These Flicks Are GREAT…

…But Having Them On The Blu-ray Is EVEN BETTER!!!

So It’s Time To Enjoy, My Peeps.

Time To Enjoy, Indeed!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head That (also) Makes Me Smile: “UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWN” by TALKING HEADS (1977)

“…Where

Where Is My Common Sense?

How

Did I Get In A Jam Like This?

Believe

I Believe In Mystery

Love

Love

Love Love Is Simple As 1-2-3…”

TALKING HEADS !!!

“…Here Come A Riddle

Here Come A Clue

If You Were Really Smart

You’d Know What To Do When I Say

Why Am I Going Out Of My Head

Whenever You’d Around???

The Answer Is Obvious

Love Has Come To Town!!!

UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWNIs The Lead Jam On The 1977 Debut AlbumTALKING HEADS: 77By The Amazingly Wonderful Band TALKING HEADS !!!

… … … … … … …

… … … … …

… … …

Good Morning, My Peeps.

So…

…I’ve Had This Song…

UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWN

…Runnin’ ’round My Head For A Couple Days…

…And I Felt It Was High Time I Sprung It On Y’all.

WHY???

Honestly…

…I Really Just Wanna Stop Thinking About It.

It Doesn’t Always Work As I’d Like It To…

…But Blogging About It Does Tend To Help In Such Matters.

Plain AND Simple, My Peeps.

Plain AND Simple, Indeed.

πŸ˜‰

Do I Love AND Enjoy This Song?

YES.

YES I DO.

It’s Perky.

It’s Quirky.

It’s Totally FUN.

It’s Really Just An All-Around Smile-Generating Little Number.

But That’s Something One Has Come To Expect From The Band…

TALKING HEADS

Period.

Is It A Fantastic Jam?

YES.

YES IT IS.

At The Very Least…

…It’ll Make You Smile, Fo SHO…

…Which Is Really All One Could Ask For In Regard To A Song Of This Type.

It’s ALSO The Lead Jam On The Album…

TALKING HEADS: 77

…Which Is ALSO The Lead Album From The Band…

TALKING HEADS

πŸ™‚

So…

…For A Lot Of Folks…

UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWN

…Was The Very First Song They Ever Heard By These Cats.

If There’s Any Way To Kick-Off An Album…

…This Was It.

Is It “The Best” Song EVER By This Band?

NO.

NOT IT’S NOT.

Does That At All Matter?

NO.

NO IT DOESN’T.

Why Is That?

Because, One Never Should Hold A Band Responsible For Any Debut.

They’re Still Trying To Figure Themselves Out.

Their Sound.

Their Lyrics.

Their Pace And Rhythm.

All Of It.

It’s All Still New To Them…

…So They’re Just Going With What Seems To Be Working At That Time.

Do I Consider This A STRONG Debut?

YES.

TOTALLY.

TALKING HEADS: 77

…Is One Of My All-Time Favorite Albums.

As I Said…

…Perky…

…Quirky…

…And Totally FUN.

Do I Own This Album?

YES.

YES I DO.

Am I A PROUD Owner?

YES.

YES I AM.

Do I Recommend This Album To Y’all?

YES.

YOU BETCHA!

UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWN

…Is A Totally Infectious Jam.

Listen To It Once And, Like Myself, You’re (likely) Hooked.

The Rest Of The Album Takes To The Lead Presented To It…

…And It All Flows From There.

The Most Popular Song On The Album, Is…

PSYCHO KILLER

…Which Has Become A Staple Song For The Now Disbanded Band.

And I Sincerely DO Love That Song.

Can’t Deny It…

…So I Won’t Even Attempt To Do So.

While Many (including myself) May Consider…

PSYCHO KILLER

…To Be “The Best” Jam On The Album…

…”My Favorite” Jam (easily) Is…

UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWN

πŸ˜€

So Take My Advice, My Peeps.

If You Ever Get The Chance To Check-Out The Album…

TALKING HEADS: 77

…GO FOR IT!

And If You’re Just Looking For A Quickie-Jam To Simply Make You Grin From Ear-To-Ear…

…You Could Do A Lot Worse Than…

UH-OH, LOVE COMES TO TOWN

…Fo SHO Fo SHO, Kiddies!!

This Post Includes Links To The Song, So Why Not Give It A Go?!?

WHY NOT, INDEED!!!

πŸ˜€

Hope Y’all Have A Damned Decent Day, My Peeps.

If Any Of Y’all Need Me For Anything…

…I’ll Be Right Here…

…Or…

…At The Least…

…I’ll Be Close By.

πŸ˜‰

L8r L8r, Tater-Tots!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

What’s On NOW?!: “ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE” (1977)

Yep.

You Read That Right.

I’m Talking About A Motion Picture…

…Released TWO-Years After…

JAWS

…That Was Seriously Trying To Cash-In.

It (sadly and/or surely) Failed To Do So.

And Now…

…It Lives On In People Like ME.

People Who Said…

"Eh, I've Had Enough Of JAWS... Hey, Let's Watch That Killer Whale Flick!"

πŸ˜‰

And So…

…Here It Is…

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

(1977)

…Starring…

RICHARD HARRIS

&

WILL SAMPSON

&

CHARLOTTE RAMPLING

…And Of Course…

BO DEREK

!!! !!! !!!

Now Tell Me You’re NotΒ Intrigued?!

Tell Me You Don’t Wanna Know More?!

GREAT!!

I Just KNEW Y’all Were Game For This One!!

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

…Was One Of My Favorite Flicks As A Child…

…And I Suppose You Could Say I Never Grew-Out-Of-It.

I Actually Used To Pretend I Was…

RICHARD HARRIS

(called "NOLAN" in this flick)

…And I Would Pretend The Bed In The Room…

(any bed, any room)

…Was The Ship.

And By God, I Would Hunt My Killer Whale.

I Would Sail Onward…

…Into The Frozen Wasteland Known As The Arctic.

By Gum, I Was Going To Find That Whale…

…And I Was Going To Put A Harpoon…

(a harpoon made from Legos or Construx)

…Deep Into Its Bloody Back-Side!!!

πŸ˜€

The Film, Honestly, Is Very Simple.

Man Kills The Whale’s Mate AND Child.

Whale Reeks Havoc On The Seaside Town.

Man Goes After Whale.

Whale Takes Out His Revenge On Man.

Very Cut…

…Very Dry…

…Very Simple.

It Is NOT A Thinking-Man’s Flick…

…It’s Just A Classic Revenge Caper.

BUT…

…Does That Make It Any Less Enjoyable?

Well…

…Not To Me, It Doesn’t.

Like I Said…

…It’s A Flick From My Childhood That I Never Bothered To Outgrow.

It’s A Helluva Lot Of Fun…

…And I Was Tickled-Pink When It Was Finally Released On DVD.

While Some Of Y’all Would Have To Be Supremely-Plenty-Bored To Watch This Sort Of Trash…

…Others Of Y’all Would Likely Lap-It-Up Like A Cat With Fresh-Milk.

(by the way, don't give your cats milk as it's bad for their tummies)

BUT ANYWAY…

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

…Is A Fun Little Flick…

…And It’s One I’m Happy To Share With Y’all.

WHY?

Because I’m Pretty Damned Sure MOST Of Y’ALL Have Never Even Heard Of It, Let Alone Seen It.

Is It A GREAT FILM?

Not Really.

Is It A FUN FLICK?

MOST DEFINITELY!!

I’d Call It A VERY Forgotten Classic.

Isn’t That What Being Entertained Is All About?!

CRAP.

NOT CRAP.

KINDA CRAP’ISH.

NEAR CRAP.

CRAP-TASTIC.

They’re All Terms Used In Defining Most Anything In Life.

In Regard To This Film…

ORCA: THE KILLER WHALE

…I’m Forced To Call It…

“MAJORLY CRAP-TASTIC”

!!! !!! !!!

I Love It.

You Probably Don’t/Won’t.

But Does Knowing You Don’t/Won’t Affect My Decision To Watch It?

Nah.

NOT. AT. ALL.

It May Be “CRAP-TASTIC”…

…But It’s TOTALLY My Kind Of “CRAP-TASTIC”…

…Ya Know?!

Do You Feel My Jive, My Peeps?!?

Somehow…

…I KNEW YOU WOULD!!!

πŸ˜€

“THE BEST” -Vs- “MY FAVORITE”: Pilot Episode

Alright, My Peeps…

…This Is A Subject I’ve Touched On Many Times In My Daily Rambles.

Some People Sincerely Do Not Understand The Concept Of…

THE BEST

Vs

MY FAVORITE

…Since They Don’t Understand How Someone’s Favorite Something Isn’t Also The Best Of Whatever It May Be.

In This Series…

…I’ll Be Discussing Different Films…

…Songs…

…Albums…

…Books…

…Whatever I Can Think Of…

…To Showcase The Point That…

THE BEST

…Doesn’t Have To Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

In Today’s Episode…

…I’ll Be Taking On TWO (2) Exceptionally Popular Film Franchises…

INDIANA JONES

&

STAR WARS

πŸ˜€

Shall We Begin?!

LETS!!!

*** *** *** *** ***

*** *** ***

***

First-Up…

INDIANA JONES

πŸ™‚

I’m Beginning Here As This One Is The Hardest To Sell Others On.

Now…

…Which “INDIANA JONES” Film Is Most Widely Accepted AND Agreed Upon As Being…

THE BEST

???

Well…

…That’s A Simple One.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…Is By FAR Considered To Be…

THE BEST

…Of The Entire “INDIANA JONES” Spectrum.

.Period.

Do I Have A Problem With That?

Nope.

WHY?

Because I Accept The Fact That…

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…Is…

THE BEST

…For That Series Of Films.

HOWEVER…

…Is It…

MY FAVORITE

???

???

Honestly…

…NOPE.

So What Is?!

Well…

INDIANA JONES And THE TEMPLE Of DOOM

…Has Always Been…

…And Will Always Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

To ME…

…It’s The Darkest Chapter In The “INDIANA JONES” Saga…

…And It’s Honestly The Most FUN Flick Of The Bunch.

I Remember Seeing It As A Child And Becoming An Instant Convert.

I Loved…

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…But I Loved Loved LOVED…

INDIANA JONES And THE TEMPLE Of DOOM

…Even More So.

Sue Me.

I Like What I Like…

…And I Love What I Love.

πŸ˜‰

*** *** *** *** ***

*** *** ***

Next Up…

STAR WARS

πŸ˜€

This Is Another That’s Been A Hard Sell On Other Folks.

When It Comes To The “STAR WARS” Universe…

…People Always Seem Torn.

There’s The School That Says…

STAR WARS: Episode IV: A NEW HOPE

…Is The Best.

And Then There Are Those Whom Say…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

…Is The Best.

I Tend To Agree With The Latter.

I’m Of A Mind That Says…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

…Is Honestly…

THE BEST

…From THAT Saga Of Motion Pictures.

Nothing Wrong With That.

BUT…

…Is…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

MY FAVORITE

???

???

Again…

…NOPE.

What Is?!

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…That’s What!!!

πŸ˜€

Again…

…To ME…

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…Falls Into That Realm Of…

…Always Has Been…

…Always Will Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

It’s The First Film I Honestly Remember Seeing In The Theater…

(Though "E.T." Was Actually The First Film I Saw In The Theater, I Just Don't Remember That Viewing Since I Was Only 2-Years-Old hehehe)

…And I Was Totally Blown Away!

At 3-Years-Old…

…I’d Never Seen Anything Like It.

And THAT MEMORY Has Stuck With Me MY ENTIRE LIFE.

It Became My Favorite In 1983…

…And It’s Remained My Favorite To This Day.

When I Need Something FUN And UPLIFTING…

…It’s Hard For Me To Go Wrong With…

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

I Get A Flood Of Old Memories Floating To The Surface Each AND Every Time I See It.

I Get Them Thar Goose-Pimples When I Watch It.

The Moment I Hear The Words…

IT’S A TRAP!

…I Nearly Keel Over With Grand Excitement!

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…Is The Most FUN Flick Of Them All!

It Makes Me Feel Like A Kid Again…

…And Those Memories…

…To ME…

…Are ABSOLUTELY…

…POSITIVELY…

…WITHOUT A DOUBT…

…PRICELESS.

.Period.

Some Things Stick With Us Forever…

…And Ever…

…And Ever And Ever And Ever.

Y’all Know That.

You’re Human.

You Understand The Power Of The Mind.

You Know How It Works Well Enough To Know How That Goes.

Your “FAVORITE” Anything Does NOT Always Jive With What Everyone Else Considers “THE BEST” Or “THE WORST” Or “THE MOST FUN” Or “THE LEAST FUN”…

…Etc Etc Etc.

We’re All Our Own People.

We Have The Power To BOTH Agree AND Disagree.

That’s Part Of The Human Experience.

That’s Part Of Life.

Wouldn’t Y’all Tend To Agree?!

GREAT!!

I KNEW YOU WOULD!!!
