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.
