THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH
1999, MGM/Park Circus, 128 min, UK, USA, Dir: Michael Apted

When billionaire oil tycoon Sir Robert King - a personal friend of M’s - is assassinated, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) is assigned to protect the man's daughter from KGB-agent-turned-terrorist Renaud (THE FULL MONTY's Robert Carlyle). But the young woman is hardly the innocent she seems: Elektra King's involvement in a plot to manipulate oil prices could get all of Istanbul vaporized. Helmed by veteran director Michael Apted (COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER, the UP documentaries), this action-packed thriller features such familiar faces as Denise Richards (playing a nuclear physicist), a pre-HARRY POTTER Robbie Coltrane and Desmond Llewelyn in his final appearance as that master of lethal gadgets, Q.


MOONRAKER
1979, MGM/Park Circus, 126 min, UK, Dir: Lewis Gilbert

James Bond goes to space in his 11th outing, which stars Roger Moore as Bond and the gorgeous Lois Chiles as his love interest. Richard Kiel is back from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME as imposing villain Jaws, and production designer Ken Adam’s spectacular sets make this one of the most visually striking films in the series.
