On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is often considered one of the best James Bond movies of the 24 that have been released. In honor of its 50th anniversary and in anticipation of a new Bond movie next year, we watched the classic spy film and discuss why it, and Bond, are so special. Then we get in the holiday spirit and watch each other’s favorite Christmas movies: The Muppet Christmas Carol from Cody, and The Holiday from Ben.
