Spectre..... what a let down!!

Sunday, November 08, 2015

It's no secret I've been looking forward to the new James Bond film and the amount of publicity it's generated has added to the excitement. I'm not known for being a huge 007 fan but I hate to miss out on anything big and as my daughter wanted to see it we decided to go on Friday.

Unfortunately the weather has been pretty awful here on the South Coast and after much umm-ing and aah-ing we put it off until yesterday (Saturday). Our local multiplex cinema had numerous showings of the film so what could possibly go wrong?.......
Didn't think to pre-book and when we got there there were only single seats left. Not ideal as we like to share a drink, give appropriate reactions and looks during the film etc, you know what I mean?
After a bit of indecision (we were all geared up to see Spectre and very excited) we looked at our other options and Brooklyn seemed like the best bet so we decided to watch that instead.

I knew very little about the film so the girl at the counter gave us a brief account. My daughter didn't look impressed but we went ahead with it anyway and it was

For those who don't know it's about a girl growing up in 50's Ireland in a small town who gets the opportunity to go to Brooklyn and (hopefully) make a better life for herself. It's beautifully filmed and I would thoroughly recommend it - even my 'I don't like chick-flick films' daughter loved it!
Still need to see Spectre though.........

    I like Daniel Craig and think he's the best Bond, after Sean Connery of!

    But I WAS a bit underwhelmed by Darkfall, the last one. On the other hand my favorite chase scene of all times was the one he did at the beginning of Casino Royale...oh MY! No gimmickry, just man-to-man ground-pounding action!

    We'll see how Spectre measures up against the high bar of Casino Royale.

    I recently watched an older movie that was stunning in its portrayal of a love that endures and thrives despite the challenges of aging: Still Mine

    Too bad your plans fell through. But at least it ended up being a good night out. Thanks for the recommendation.
