For my 2019 "Bondathon" I've been sharing the movies with my ten year old daughter. She's often shown an interest in Bond so this year I asked her if she wanted to watch them all with me. She enthusiastically agreed. So far we've watched
She enjoyed this a lot. Said a few times she thinks this might be her favourite so far.
From Russia With Love
Enjoyed it. Didn't say too much about it though.
Really got into this. She was a bit shocked at the "death by gold paint" bit.
Didn't seem to dig this one all that much.
You Only Live Twice
Now this she LOVED. Really got into it. She's also said she thinks this one might be her favourite so far but she's not too sure. She LOVES the title song.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Surprisingly perhaps she really did get into this. She was very surprised when I told her this was made almost a decade before I was born! "But it's good" she said!
She was a bit bummed out by the ending. Just said "I knew something like that would happen"
Diamonds Are Forever
Live And Let Die
The Man With The Golden Gun
We watched these three over the weekend and she didn't seem too taken with any of them really. Especially the last one. Just kept saying it was boring and asking me when it was over! Can't say I blame her really. It's a bit of a turd.
Still - she's enthusiastic about watching the rest of them and she wants to listen to some of the soundtracks I have. She LOVES the Carly Simon song and is looking forward to watching that movie on Friday night. Also - we're going out a bit later today so I'm going to play some Bond music for her in the car. Got big things planned.
So have any of the parents in here shown Bond to their kids? What did they think?
