I Think He’s Attempting Re-Entry, Sir

Roger Moore, the reason why I became a filmmaker, has died. An era that began with me first watching him parachute a Union Jack over Baffin island to the Monty Norman Orchestra dig-digalee-doo and blow my tiny half-formed mind forever… Has ended.

Genius, god, performing legend, he’s responsible for one of the greatest smut lines in film history (written by the dad of our sadly passed dear friend Ben Wood) as one spook says to another upo viewing 007 snuggle with Lois Goodchild in the cockpit of the space shuttle at the end of Moonraker: “I think he’s attempting re-entry, sir”.

Which I hope is what the angels at the pearly gates are muttering right now.
