Skip to comments.Movie for a Sunday afternoon: "Octopussy" (1983)

The fact that there's currently a new James Bond movie showing in the theaters prompts the pick for this week's feature. Nostalgia for a time period when we had far superior leaders(Reagan and Mrs. Thatcher, of course) on both sides of the Atlantic helps prompt this pick as well. The current 007 film "Skyfall" is good but OP has a high sense of old-fashioned fun that's lately been absent from the series. Plus, it's got a Soviet villain who wants to nuke a U.S. military base in West Germany to trigger World War III(great plot device).
This youtube playlist features a better print of it but they took down the first part. I recommend those who watch it to switch to it after the opening credits are over.-
Quite possibly the worst Bond movie ever and your link no longer works..
