The "Moonraker" soundtrack gets the "For Your Ears Only" treatment in the final part of our look back at Roger Moore's fourth outing as 007. We go through the most important John Barry compositions from the film including Shirley Bassey's return as vocalist on the Main Theme and more. Plus, we review some tracks that didn't make it to the official release along with Shirley Bassey's performance at the Academy Awards a few years ago to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bond.

In the second of our two-part review of "Moonraker", we talk about the antagonist Drax and his motivational drive to kill 007 and create a master race in space. We also review the Bond Girls of "Moonraker", including the lovely scientist Dr. Holly Goodhead. We also discuss the special effects, the fights, the gadgets, the space station hideout, and an odd cameo by the theme to "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". Sound strange? Welcome to "Moonraker!"

BondCast is back for 2018 with our breakdown of 1979’s “Moonraker”, Roger Moore’s fourth outing as 007. It’s Bond in space! Cashing in on the space craze of the seventies fueled by Star Wars, “Moonraker” sends James Bond to the stars. From the excitement of the opening sky jump without a parachute sequence, to the wacky slapstick moments featuring the villainous Jaws, we talk about it all. Plus gadgets! Boat chases! Assassins in caskets! Even a double-taking pigeon! Our discussion about “Moonraker” is sometimes as wacky as the film itself!
