Chris and Jon ramble about The Human Centipede: Final Sequence, critic reviews for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Marvel’s Jessica Jones and more in this Thanksgiving Eve podcast. Trailers discussed are Captain America: Civil War and Legends of Tomorrow.
In just a few short hours we get what may very well be Daniel Craig’s James Bond swansong.
At first glance, Spectre seems like your average 007 flick. Everyone’s favorite British spy has to save the world from a deranged lunatic (Christoph Waltz), get the girl (Monica Bellucci) and grab a few swigs of the old reliable (shaken, not stirred).
But that would be too easy.
Walt’z character Oberhauser is not just a simple villain, but the head of the evil organization the film’s title bears. Throw in Hinx (former WWE champion and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Drax Dave Bautista), and you’ve got one of the most intimidating henchmen Bond has ever faced. This time around, Bond will not just be on her majesty’s secret service – he’s going to be taking down an entire entity with him.
While it may not be as good as its predecessor Skyfall, Spectre still looks like a contender to be another great Bond film. If this is in fact the final Craig Bond film, let’s hope he goes out with a bang Ian Fleming would approve of.
