This Father’s Day, spend some quality time with Dad by enjoying one of your favorite father/son or father/daughter pastimes: watching James Bond movies! The Bonding with Dad Marathon is an action-packed day-long event that presents three of the very best James Bond films on the big screen: “From Russia with Love,” “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” and “Casino Royale” (2006).
From Russia with Love
1963, United Artists, 110m, Digital
Considered one of the best entries in the Bond series, Sean Connery’s second outing as 007 involves the hunt for a Soviet cryptographic device, the suspicious defection of a Soviet agent (Daniela Bianchi), and a SPECTRE plot to kill our hero. Robert Shaw and Lotte Lenya almost steal the film as two of Bonds deadliest adversaries.
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
1969, United Artists, 140m, Digital
After Sean Connery retired from the spy game, the hunt was on to find a new James Bond. Australian actor/model George Lazenby won the role but walked away after his one lone Bond movie. But what a movie! Probably the most faithful adaptation of a Ian Fleming novel, OHMSS is considered by many to be the BEST Bond movie of all time due to its more serious tone and breathtaking set pieces. This time around Bond must stop Blofeld (Telly Savalas) from sterilizing the worlds food supply. During the course of his adventure, 007 meets Countess Teresa di Vincenzo (Diana Rigg) – a woman so smart, beautiful and resilient that she may convince Bond to give up his license to kill.
4:30 – 7PM
2006 MGM/Sony 144m, Digital
The beloved series finally steps out of the Cold War and into the a 21st century with this amazing adaptation of Ian Fleming’s first Bond novel. Daniel Craig deftly assumes the iconic role and makes it his own. Having just received his 00 status, Bond sets off on a mission to stop evil banker LeChiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) from financing a ruthless terrorist organization. Eva Green delivers a memorable turn as the secretive Vesper Lynd.
