Ricky Church continues his countdown to Spectre with a review of Tomorrow Never Dies…
After the massive success and revival of the James Bond franchise with GoldenEye, production went straight to work on a follow-up for Pierce Brosnan’s next 007 adventure. While a little zaney at times, Tomorrow Never Dies is a decent continuation of Brosnan’s Bond in another story that is feels mostly grounded in reality.
After Chinese forces allegedly sink a British naval ship, Bond is put into action to prove what really happened before the situation escalates into a potential war between East and West. His investigation leads him to media magnate Elliot Carver and Paris, Elliot’s wife and one of Bond’s former loves. Bond also teams up with Wai Lin, a spy for the Chinese government, in order to discover Carver’s motives.
Brosnan once again delivers a good performance as Bond and, »

As someone who is a huge admirer of Bollywood cinema, I also happen to be a big fan of Us sitcoms. I have seen many great shows from beginning to end that include Friends, Frasier, Everybody Loves Raymond and of course How I Met Your Mother.
