On Her Majesty's Secret Service / Solo & Upgrade

On Her Majesty's Secret Service / Solo & Upgrade

Forget podcasting - this week we're having Bond Therapy.

Hello, and welcome to another episode of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, Macintosh and Maud confront the biggest anomaly in the Bond universe, and need some Bond therapy to determine their feelings. Is this a good movie? Is George Lazenby a good James Bond? Are we overthinking our impressions of this movie? Find out during our review of 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service!

Then, after the break, we have reviews of two solid popcorn movies, regardless of whatever critics tell you: Solo: A Star Wars Story and Upgrade.
