Recap Supplement: Moonraker (1979)
While most movies on this site are relegated to bare bones home video releases collecting dust in Blockbusters all over the world, there are some notable exceptions. This series will examine the bonus features used to wring just a little more money out of a film that either failed or has simply found its way here.
This series will act as a supplement to the recaps that have already been posted, so if you’re looking for a blow by blow account of the movie, I recommend you read the recap first, because there will be spoilers aplenty here.
We begin our series with one of the better special editions on the market; the eleventh James Bond film, Moonraker. Not only that, the recap is the first thing I ever wrote for the site. And boy, does it show. My feelings on the film have softened somewhat. I still consider it to be a flawed film, but an entirely enjoyable flawed film.
