Moonraker might not be the best Bond movie — it might not even
be the best of Moore’s time with the Bond mantle. But all these
years later, its goofy charm perhaps best represents the joyful
camp that Moore brought to his role as 007, something we will
always remember now that he’s gone.
Over the years, my youthful resistance to campiness has faded, and my esteem for Moonraker has grown.
