CB: After a grueling October line up of films, the first weekend in November has a reward for us and Sony is delivering it: Spectre. The next installment of the James Bond franchise can only be summed up by calling it "phenomenal."
Opening on a continuous shot reminiscent of the epic continuous Age of Utlron Hydra fight in the snowy woods or even Alejandro Inarritu's Birdman, Spectre goes full throttle from the start. It's Day of the Dead in Mexico, just one small stop on the globetrotting adventure, and Bond (Daniel Craig) finds himself investigating a cryptic message he received from the fallen M (Judy Dench). His efforts put him on the scent of The Pale King and from here, the world must be saved.
