On this cold Monday morning, let me direct your attention to MovieRob’s 007 December Blogathon. I’ve chosen to do a few reviews. The first one to go up is on You Only Live Twice starring Sean Connery as the handsome James Bond. It was a very different feeling from the more recent ones.
While you’re doing that, remember to check out MovieRob and give him a follow so that you don’t miss any of his awesome reviews along with the rest of the 007 Blogathon entries 🙂
For our second review of You Only Live Twice (1967), here’s a review by Kim of Tranquil Dreams.
Before I start the review, I’d like to say that I’m not very well versed in James Bond. I watched maybe two Pierce Brosnan ones and then the first two Daniel Craig ones. When Rob decided to do this 007 blogathon, I struggled a little to decide whether I should do this. Still, I ended up with Sean Connery’s James Bond. I have no idea what to expect so lets give this one a look, shall we? I’m sure it’ll be an interesting experience.

Cast: Sean Connery, Akiko Wakabayashi, Tetsuro Tanba, Mie Hama, Karin Dor, Donald Pleasance

Thanks again Kim!
Thank YOU! Was lots of fun 🙂
I have a real soft spot for You Only Live Twice. I used to watch it all the time when as a child, mainly because of the ninjas and the volcano base.
I love the blend of the swingin’ 60’s feel of the previous films with the Japanese culture and I think the score is incredible too. Unfortunately it was soured a little after Robbie WIlliams sampled it for one of his songs.
Nice review Kim.
Maybe thats the problem that I haven’t seen any Bond films before this one? But I did appreciate the whole ninjas and Japanese culture 🙂
Thanks Paul! 🙂
