Awesome: Octopussy
  • The entire opening pre-credits sequence still holds up.
  • When Orlov is interrogated by Bond, he gives him an Oh Crap moment to rival a similar scene in Goldfinger, with just two words:
    Bond: You can't be inviting a nuclear war. What happens when the US retaliates?
    General Orlov: Against whom?
  • Bond (dressed as a clown) says "I am deadly serious!" And we believe him.
  • Q orchestrating an assault on the Big Bad's palace involving a hot-air balloon and several dozen bikini-clad jewel-thief circus contortionists.
  • Bond rolls Kamal Khan's dice after realizing they are rigged to always land a double-six, but he doesn't bother to look at them to confirm it. He instead just stares at Kamal's pissed off face.
  • Bond's literal And This Is for... moment when he avenges 009:
    Mischka (prepares to stab Bond): And this. . .for my brother!
    Bond (dodges knife by swinging the door he's pinned to open, and throws his own, killing him): And that's for 009!
  • The whole final action sequence, with Bond clinging to the top of Kahn's plane in mid-air.
