I know Spectre has gotten some fairly negative reviews, and I absolutely disagree with them. It’s no secret that I’m a huge Bond fanatic – I’ve owned the entire series on VHS, DVD, and now Blu-ray – and to me, even more than Skyfall, this felt like a true celebration of “Bond,” and one that would have been more fitting for the 50th anniversary (when Skyfall came out). Don’t get me wrong, I really liked Skyfall, and it’s the better looking film (better art direction), but Spectre was just so much fun to watch, with tons of nods to the entire series, without descending too deep into the Brosnan/Moore abyss of joke action. We get a lot more winks from Craig than we’ve ever seen, but I find that he manages to strike a decent balance between that and the intensity he’s shown in his previous 3 Bond films. I saw it at an advance screening in IMAX, and it was one hell of a fun ride I’m not going to forget soon. In fact, I can’t wait to see it again. And please, give us one more movie with the same crew.
