I took a bit of a break, but got back into things this afternon.
This movie is 100% bonkers from start to finish. Absolute trash, and unrecognizable as part of the same franchise that Connery left behind. But despite how bad it is, I kind of love it. It moves into the "so bad it's good" category for me. Awful one-liners, an assassin popping up out of a coffin for no reason, just to be replaced by more assassins who actually have guns which leads to a gondola chase and ends with the gondola driving onto the bank as a car with a pigeon doing a double take, then a second boat chase later in the movie, before the eventual climactic space battle. The space battle is totally insane. They have a gravity control switch, which the writers kind of know is related to rotation of the space station (which was somehow built in secret?), but then gravity shits room to room, and they often forget whether it's currently on even in the same scene, and they don't consider the control being in the center of the rotation would mean it has no "gravity" at any time. As a said, total garbage, but it somehow represents both a low and high point in the series for me simultaneously.
Hey, according to Cubby Moonraker wasn't Science Fiction, but rather Science Fact. So if you have a problem with the science looks like you gotta blame science, not filmmakers that had no idea what they were doing and just trying to ride the Star Wars success to an easy pay day.
