Episode 127 of The Movie Robcast is a license to thrill affair. With No Time to Die finally released in cinemas, Robs Daniel & Wallis can let loose their opinions of Daniel Craig’s final 007 outing. Unsurprisingly, they have plenty to talk about. From how this compares to Craig’s previous Bond movies and other films in the franchise generally, to the performances of series newcomers Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas and Rami Malek, to the possible influence of Wallace and Gromit on Bond 25, and much more.
Surprises abound in No Time to Die so the Robs had to include a spoiler section, in which they talk about the stuff you shouldn’t know about before watching the film. Don’t worry, this section is heavily signposted. Preceding this, at 32.45 is a segment featuring Bond expert and Secrets & Spies podcast host Chris Carr. Chris gave fantastic insights into how this Bond ties into the series as a whole and the Ian Fleming novels, all while a helicopter apparently hovered above his flat. We’ve heard from him since the record and he seems to be fine…
Lastly, The Movie Robcast will return….
