One of the most heated debates circling The A.V. Club offices at the moment is whether to see Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to 2015’s Kingsman: The Secret Service premiering this weekend. Our own film editor, A.A. Dowd: not a fan of the original. But some of the rest of us either think it’s a great movie,…
Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This weekend we’re going to be sipping on a classic cocktail that is, at its core, just a glass of clear, cold, alcohol: the Vesper martini.
There’s a new Aston Martin DB! It goes to 11! Hilarious. We’re currently having an office debate over whether or not the new DB11 is pretty compared to the DB9, which is ridiculous because it is—just like the DB6 was still pretty when it followed the iconic DB5.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice comes out on March 25. While we wait for that, I’ve spotted something in the marketing for the new superhero film that ties Batman to James Bond in a very Aston Martin-y, very Jalop way.
If you’ve ever seen Goldfinger or basically half of the James Bond movies, you’ve probably thought about how neat the rotating license plate gadgets on the British superspy’s cars were. Too bad it doesn’t work out so great in the real world.
Ealier today we reported on a mysterious ‘Project Goldfinger’ we discovered during a tour of Tesla’s Nevada Gigafactory. Everyone including Elon Musk claimed to have no idea what it was, but I’ve got a few ideas.
I, unlike many Americans, enjoyed last year’s SPECTRE. I thought it felt very much like a campy late-Connery or Roger Moore James Bond film and it was fun when it wasn’t boring you to death. But then I found this 1990's Pepsi Max commercial, and now there’s no excuses.
Before Gary Powell had finished his question about the new Bond movie, I’d already said yes twice. Gary was a 007 veteran. In The World Is Not Enough, he perfected flipping the Q speedboat on the Thames by jumping a smaller vessel—wait for it—onto dry land.
It’s been a weird time for movie theme songs lately. We had the dire Fall Out Boy/Missy Elliot Ghostbusters theme. Suicide Squad gave us an ‘unofficial’ theme that wasn’t great. Then Rihanna’s Star Trek Beyond music video has us wishing she was in the movie. But what was the last truly great movie theme song?
I’ve been a huge James Bond fan for as long as I remember, and I grew up at an age where I was able to naively enjoy all six Star Wars films before realizing The Truth. With that in mind, this James Bond-style opening title sequence for The Empire Strikes Back has awakened my nostalgia forces.
Archer’s titular hero is either the greatest spy, or... the worst spy. Let’s be honest, it probably skews a little closer to the latter more often than not, much to our pleasure. But all that experience makes him the perfect person to review every James Bond film, in his own hilarious style.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Eva Green as Vesper Lynd in 2006's Casino Royale, the best James Bond movie of all time?
Movie CG gets better every year, and that’s bad news for the blockbusters of yesteryear which have a tendency to age really, really poorly.
It’s been far too long LaLD, but I am back! It’s been an action packed past few months and I just haven’t had the time to post on here, but I’ve got a great post for you today.
The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 officially debuts at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, but that’s not saying much. This is the latest of several image leaks, including a front-end photo just the other week. But unlike we’ve seen prior to now, the most recent crop of photos looks to be a set of factory images.
Only one Aston Martin DB10 out of the 10 developed for last year’s Bond film, SPECTRE, will ever be made available for sale, and it just sold for $3.5 million at a charity auction—more than double its expected take. You missed your chance.
James Bond is back! And not just on the big screen—Britain’s most famous spy has returned to comics after decades away in today’s release of James Bond #1 by Warren Ellis and Jason Masters. To mark the release of issue one, we spoke Ellis to discuss how he brought Ian Fleming’s classic hero to life.
