    Not Playing with Lex and DanJuly 13, 2018The Living Daylights
    4.4 The Living Daylights

    It’s the first of Timothy Dalton’s two outings as 007: 1987’s The Living Daylights, and Dan and Lex are buckled in for a new, more serious Bond.

    Hot topics include the regression of female characters, a decided lack of Bond-ish one liners, and oh my god is there skiing in this movie too?
