Skyfall was the Bond movie that shattered audience expectations as well as box office records. Now director Sam Mendes is back to try and make lightning strike twice. Did he pull it off with Spectre? I saw the film last night, and I’m here with a few mildly spoiler-y thoughts before you go see it yourself this weekend.
First, this isn’t a full-blown review of Spectre. It would be cruel and unusual punishment for me to steal that from our resident 007 scholar, Justin Westbrook, after he spent 10 whole weeks counting down the best Bond movies. His take will be better than mine and is coming in the next day or two.
