Movie Review: just another James Bond movie?

This past weekend I went to the opening of the new James Bond movie, Spectre. I would define this movie as a classic James Bond movie with a few twists and turns, but still a Bond film that doesn’t jump out as unique. The film contained a lot of action, witty-humor, and romance, but I’d say the writers were trying to do way too much for a two and a half hour movie. The writers did their best to connect all ...
