Twitch in Bondage: The Kids Talk THUNDERBALL

Twitch is not the youngest of movie websites, and a number of the writing staff have children who are old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh, but also with the inklings of consideration. Many of us fall in love with the movies when we are so young. Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic filmmaking on the big screen.  

In the past, Willem (Age 9) and Miranda (Age 8) have talked the films of Studio Ghibli and also reviewed Pixar's Brave. Here they take in their first 007 film, Thunderball and they had plenty to say about the inefficiency of the villains, James Bond's relationships with the ladies, and whether the mystery man petting the cat runs spec-TER or spec-TRA. As part of the ongoing re-evaluation of all things 007 on the site, Twitch-In-Bondage, here is the pint-sized perspective of the spy adventure that has a lot of scuba diving and plenty o' sharks.

The entire archives of Kids Talk Film can be found over at Vimeo including discussion on films as varied as Time Bandits, 2001:  A Space Odyssey, and Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Have you introduced your kids to the Evil Overlord list?

    Very charming and cute. I was actually afraid they'd be bored by the film, since most adults complain of its length and about the underwater scenes. Glad to see the kids weren't bothered by that!
