Goldfinger - Supplement

While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our episode on Goldfinger, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...


Episode 60: Goldfinger


In our newest episode, the honeymoon is over as Tim forces Corinne to watch yet another James Bond movie, with MovieBob joining them again to face the toxic masculinity of the popular 007 outing Goldfinger. We discuss the metaphorical and nearly literal emasculation of Bond, compare the greedy title villain to a certain head of state, and suggest that more casting decisions should be contingent on wrestling matches. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and a choice of hats: duck or projectile. Also pleased be advised that we do discuss sexual assault as a theme in the film, something that's almost a given with James Bond by this point.

Movie In-Jokes: Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

One of the fun games when watching movies is to spot references, secret messages, and gags that filmmakers, film crews, and actors can slip into movies to pay tribute to films they love, have a bit of fun with their previous work, or give the cinematic equivalent of a shout-out. Here's a spotter's guide to these inside jokes.

As Halloween approaches, we see that our old hockey-mask clad friend Jason Voorhees exists in a bigger and even scarier world than we imagined as revealed by these two references in the (sort-of) final Jason film, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.
