A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

045 Goldfinger by Guy Hamilton
Auric Goldfinger (not to be confused with half-brother Agric Silverfinger or his developmentally challenged cousin Plumbic Leadfinger) conspires to ruin the financial world by once and for all taking the U.S. off the gold standard. Despite the ambiguous motivations of its characters, Goldfinger codifies the formula for all future Bond films. Sean Connery has long been regarded as the "best Bond", with this being the "best Bond film," although it must be said that Matt believes the one-off Lazenby film On Her Majesty's Secret Service is perhaps a little overlooked... just sayin'.
