* Bond, M and the Minister of Defence walk in to Draxs' laboratory wearing gas masks and find it has been entirely refurbished with a "surprised" Drax waiting for them, utterly humiliating Bond in front of his bosses. MagnificentBastard indeed.

* Bond manages to survive getting thrown out of a plane without a parachute by fighting the villain in mid-air and stealing his. And note that this was 1979, meaning you're actually seeing a pair of stuntmen fighting in freefall with a cameraman falling beside them. It reportedly took almost 100 jumps to get everything.

Added DiffLines:

* The scene where Bond disables the station's gravity is truly impressive when you bear in mind this was filmed pre-CGI. The scene features the largest number of weightless actors ever filmed (on wires).

Added DiffLines:

* The effects. ''Holy shit'', the effects. Even nowadays, on the Blu-Ray version, those model shots and laser guns look damn good. If they're going to steal from ''Film/StarWars'', they at least stole one of the things ''Star Wars'' did right.
