The LAMBcast: Licence to Kill

Timothy Dalton and Robert Davi in Licence to Kill

Last week, I was thrilled to join a group of fine bloggers to discuss the 1989 James Bond film Licence to Kill. I championed this divisive movie for the Movie of the Month of The LAMB (Large Association of Movie Blogs). It was a close battle for this prize, but we were able to win against The Princess Bride. While I really like that movie, it's basically universally acclaimed. With this choice, I knew there were going to be some detractors. This discussion included a variety of different takes about its merits, which led to a lively podcast. I hosted the conversation and had a great time going through one of my favorite Bond films. We also spent some time giving our reactions to Disney's recent acquisition of LucasFilm. This topic is a big one for me as a fan of both theme parks and Star Wars. The other participants were regular LAMBcast host Dylan and Justin from Man I Love Films, Joel from Deny Everything (and the LAMB!), and Kristen from Journeys in Classic Film. Check out this excellent podcast about this interesting part of the Bond franchise since through this link.
