99: An Overindulgence of Bond

Thunderball.

In 1958 author Ian Fleming becomes enamored with the idea of a Bond film and though the connection of his friend Ivar Bryce, meets Kevin McClory who along with script writer Jack Whittingham work on a story. Fleming becomes bored with the process and writes Thunderball, based in part on the script leading to a legal suit that keeps Thunderball from becoming the first Bond movie and instead becomes the fourth when the issue is finally resolved out of court in 1963.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by 00 agent John Champion to talk about the James Bond adventure Thunderball. We discuss Bond history, bigger, better and tired, Bond needs a holiday, a devious plot, worthy villains, women of substance and more.

98: Lost History

The Fellowship of the Ring.

It can be argued that the one of the most popular and important books of the last century was Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bringing such a book to the screen was a monumental feat that fell into the hands of someone many thought at the time as most unlikely, a man by the name of Peter Jackson.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by shield maidens Bethany Blanton and Megan Calcote to talk about Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. We discuss our journey to Middle Earth as well as Peter Jackson’s, the extended editions, the design of Middle Earth, the cast, the women, good and evil, the music and our ratings.
