Re: Pros and Cons: License to Kill

I always hated the morning coat wedding attire Leiter, Bond and ? wear at the beginning of the movie. They look like the Mr. Tux "rent two, get groom's tux free" special, instead of formal wear worthy of agent 007...

I  think the wedding tuxes looked all right , Lupes red dress and Pams black casino dress were also very nice

This is spot on. As much as I hate wedding attire trends in the US now, bad wedding attire goes back a long time, about 50 years.

Yeah, the morning suit is defiantly not one of the better outfits James Bond has worn on film.
I read a while back in 007 magazine that LTK costume designer Jodie Tillen (fresh off her five year run as costume designer on Miami Vice) wanted Timothy Dalton to wear pastels. Thankfully Dalton vetoed this idea with support from Albert R. Broccoli.

This one seems to get better for me with each viewing.

My criticisms:

- Sanchez is too much of a derivative gangster-type character.
- The Stinger-missiles subplot involving Hiller (hope I wrote that right) does lose me.

But other than that, this film is solid for me, really good stuff, and I give it 9/10.
