Live and Let Die

When: Thu., Feb. 24 2011

If you've ever wanted to hear James Bond get called a "honky," well, Roger Moore's first Bond film is for you. Released at the height of the blaxploitation craze, 1973's Live and Let Die is insane even by Bond film standards, with—let's see, there's the voodoo stuff, Yaphet Kotto as an evil Caribbean dictator who owns a chain of soul food restaurants, Jane Seymour as a psychic virgin called Solitaire, and the completely all-over-the-place theme song by Paul McCartney and Wings (admittedly, it's quite catchy). Oh, and the bit where Bond skips across a bunch of crocodiles' backs to safety, which you shouldn't try at home. This here is gonzo Bond at its 1970s-est. See it again or live the insanity for the first time at the Colony at 8 p.m. —Zack Smith

Price: $5.50
