Only ever seen bits of it as it isn't a real Bond film. I'm curious about it, but what I've seen was pretty bad.

It didnt feel like it from the outset, it has to be really bad for me to stop watching it,
Few films do that

I'm a massive Bond fan, and I can never finish the 'Casino Royale' spoof, an utter mess of a film.

The good news is after 'You Only Live Twice' you have the brilliant 'On Her Majesties Secret Service', then things get a bit silly (but good fun) with 'Diamonds Are Forever'.

I'd just see it as being to Bond films what Spaceballs is to Star Wars, except that they somehow managed to secure an official licence. Enjoy it for what it is or just skip it if that's not your thing.

Never Say Never Again is the other not quite canon Bond film, although that at least attempts to follow the same formula as the rest of them and even stars Sean Connery. It's certainly no worse than the Roger Moore films around the same period.

Jack The Giant Slayer on Amazon Prime. Really good bit of kid-friendly sub-LOTR entertainment, highly recommended. Good cast too.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Thought was pretty good and think a sequel is in the works. Had never heard of it before.
