Spectre (Hope this isn’t the “new” James Bond.)

Saw this last week.  I’ve pretty much always liked James Bond, both as a movie and a movie character…not much in this case.  It appears that “politically correct” has finally taken over.  In addition, in the normal attempt to show Bond as vulnerable but triumphant, vulnerable seems to have just about found its game.  I know that Daniel Craig is no comic, but some of the old Bond humor would be a relief.  Oh, also get a new writer…or better yet, an old one.

And since when does M get to be a hero?

And whatever happened to Q?  Another great character gets a brain wash!

Come on people!  You can do better than this!  “If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it.”

One thought on “Spectre (Hope this isn’t the “new” James Bond.)”

  1. I second that. SPECTRE did not live up to the previous James Bond movies. His character was weak, the story was idiotic, and the villain was horrible – but not in the way a villain is supposed to be horrible. The movie seemed like the filmmakers were trying too hard to wrap up all the previous Daniel Craig films. They were trying too hard to be clever and we, the audience, were forgotten about in the process.
