Alan wears his best eyepatch to hide some nuclear bombs while feeding Van to the sharks in the latest episode of the On Her Majesty Secret Podcast series Ranking the Bonds.

In the latest episode of the new Ranking the Bonds series over on the On Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network, Alan and Van revisit the third, and arguably most iconic entry in the Bond movie, Goldfinger.

These and other important topics are discussed and scored, and you can join in the fun by CLICKING HERE.
Alan and Van return to the On Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network with a new show taking another look at the Bond movies through a different lens.
How do they rank the villains, the Bond Girls, the vehicles, the gadgets, and more-?? What has aged the best/worst? Who gets the Double-Taking Pigeon Memorial Award? Will Alan go nuts when Van adds new categories in the middle of the show?? And how do they rank the film overall? Along with many more categories.
Over on the Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network we took a look at Sir Sean Connery’s extensive movie career outside the world of 007, coming up with a list of 14 different movies to discuss from his earliest roles in the late 1950s up to his last movie in 2003.
The movies covered were:
- Hell Drivers (1957)
- Marnie (1964)
- The Man Who Would Be King (1975)
- A Bridge Too Far (1977)
- The First Great Train Robbery (1978)
- Outland (1981)
- Highlander (1986)
- The Name of the Rose (1986)
- Untouchables (1987)
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
- The Hunt For Red October (1990)
- Rising Sun (1993)
- The Rock (1996)
- League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)
Tune in to see if you agree with our assessments and recommendations on which from the list are worth a watch.
This episode’s session is all about NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN. Alan has the lead on this episode and the lads will provide factoids and discussion on the main title song, 6 of their favorite tracks (hence the title of the podcast), and a bonus remix…maybe more! The numbering scheme is always subject to chaotic change!
What will the boys make of the non-EON soundtrack? What did Bonnie Tyler think? And will the lads be able to find some gems in this not-terribly-well-thought-of score?
Alan is wearing his best toupee, and Van is rounding up all the free radicals, so it must be time to review NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN, Sean Connery’s 1983 return to the role of James Bond and a sort-of remake of THUNDERBALL!
