Man From U.N.C.L.E.



Have you seen Man From U.N.C.L.E. yet?  We saw it this weekend and both really enjoyed it. It was like watching a softened version of James Bond.  The film is so sixties. Mini skirts, over-sized sunglasses and go-go boots. It's a fun movie that doesn't take itself too seriously.

  1. I haven't seen it. Thanks for the heads up.
    Mind you, sexist arrogant James Bond needs some softening. I suspect he couldn't tell whether his martini had been shaken or stirred - but liked being difficult. And superior.

    1. Hi E.C. Yup never got the shaken, stirred thing, but then I'm not a martini drinker.

  5. Hi, Sandra! It's your friend, The Man From S.H.A.D.Y. :) I didn't know this movie was out. Now, thanks to you, I am eager to see it. I did some directing in my day, pay attention to detail and cringe when I notice continuity errors and anachronisms in films set in the past. The Sixties was a long decade that saw a tremendous amount of cultural change. I am eager to see how the makers of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. negotiated those white rapids. When I was a boy James Bond left me shaken and stirred. Movies and TV series about spies and secret agents inspired me including The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the spin-off series The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. starring Stefanie Powers.

    Have a lovely day and week, dear friend Sandra!

  8. Hmmm. Solo and Kuryakin will always be Vaughn and McCallum to me.

  10. I haven't seen it yet. Actually, I don't go to the movies so I'll have to wait to see it when I can borrow it somewhere.

  11. Might have to see it. I've been VERY cautious because I was worried they'd ruin the original feel of the show. However I've heard nothing but good things so far.

    1. Hi, Robert.
      I didn't originally have a lot of interest in seeing it. I'm glad I changed my mind.

    1. Correct, Steph. Do you watch NCIS? Ducky played the part of Kuryakin.
