Movie Monday


So I finally saw Spectre, the most recent James Bond movie. I had originally thought to see it in the theater and never did and so I had to wait for it to come out on DVD.


The short plot write-up is this: The story sees Bond pitted against the global criminal organization Spectre as he attempts to thwart their plan to hijack a global surveillance network.

I watched this film more for Daniel Craig as Bond than for the actual story line. I'd heard it garnered mixed reviews and I'll admit that I didn't enjoy it as much I enjoyed (Craig's) Casino Royale or Skyfall. It was too long and too slow in places.

I also wanted to see Andrew Scott. His BBC Sherlock Moriarty has brought him some larger, juicier roles--and this was one of them. Andrew plays creepy really well, and I have a hard time evaluating his work because I hate creepy. So I guess he's good. Anyway, he plays a bad guy in Spectre and does a good job, although I was a bit put off by his age in regards to the job he held in the movie. I just felt that someone holding that position should have been a bit older.

Are you a Bond fan? Who's your favorite Bond?

I haven't seen this one yet--still waiting for my copy from the library. I do think Daniel Craig has made a good Bond, though.
