Coming to you live from Las Vegas, Nevada, this episode of Alcohollywood sees Jared and Clint podcasting from the New Media Expo (recorded on Jan. 8th), joined by Editor-in-Chief of AMC Movie Talk John Campea, who graciously sits with us and gabs about Oscar nominations speculation (with which we make many wildly inaccurate guesses about what ended up being nominated). For the most part, however, we end up talking about James Bond’s biggest Vegas vacation, Diamonds Are Forever! The start of the overt campiness of the Bond era, we see a very tired and flabby Sean Connery come back to the role to interact with one of the weirdest rogue’s galleries a Bond film has ever had. Along with John, we also get into the Bond series as a whole, and we all learn a little something.

Join us next week as we take another user request, do a small recap of our experiences at NMX, and talk about the strange, schizophrenic 1980s film She, starring Conan the Barbarian’s Sandahl Bergman!
