Musings on #BOND25 news – New Director, Writers + Cast

Ok, as a massive Bond fan, today's a big day. Somehow I missed the news that they were going to do a LIVE stream right from Goldeneye, Ian Fleming's legendary Jamaican villa. Yep, the same exact location where Fleming wrote all those 007 novels. Apparently next week on April 28 the cast/crew will begin to …

FlixChatter Review: SPECTRE (2015)

I wonder if the way I feel about the Bond song somehow impacts how I feel about the film itself. Some of my least favorite Bond songs are The Man with the Golden Gun, Die Another Day, and Quantum of Solace, and those are also my least favorite Bond films. I already mentioned in this …
