Thunderball

Thunderball ★★½

This one really lost me for awhile, though its clearly the film in this series that most inspired the first Austin Powers movie. It's sillier than OHMSS, and yet feels less satirical and more intentionally a money grab. Is that what to expect going forward?

A lot to like too - I had really been undersold on how much fun these movies like to have, and how much sex is a genuine impediment to Bond's work rather than a fun side hobby.
