spectrestandeeI wanted so much to see Spectre, the new James Bond film, and finally last night we managed to go and watch it.

Because James Bond goes after a villain in Mexico City exploding a whole building without MI6’s authorization or even knowledge, he gets suspended. But he does what he does for queen and country under secret orders. He flies around half the globe to catch the really bad guy who is the mastermind behind a secret and powerful organisation called Spectre-4-600x422Spectre.

I am tired of series or books or films that have no ending for the sole reason that they sell. Producers will do anything to make a second, third, fourth, sequel out of a story that sells. I don’t know if this James Bond has come to an end (I consider each different Bond as a different chapter and there are rumours for another one, Bond 25) but I believe he should; and they can start afresh with a new, younger actor. In this latest story the film writers combined the previous Bond films, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, to an ending that brings closure to our hero. It is a fascinating film that gives us fast cars, beautiful women, the evilest of villains and a Bond as fabulous as ever.

Although Casino Royale still remains my all time favourite, Spectre is definitely worth watching.



X-Men_Days_of_Future_Past_Official_poster_004I hadn’t watched the X-Men series for some time although I remember I had really enjoyed the first and the second films. So last night I decided to watch the last one, X-Men: Days of Future Past and I loved it too!

In this last film we see the humans having developed an amazing weapon to kill all mutants, movies-x-men-days-of-future-past-peter-dinklagethe sentinels, robotic machines that can change according to the mutant’s skill and thus be indestructible. But the sentinels have lead to the destruction of the whole civilized world, as we see mutants and humans who helped them being killed. Professor X and Magneto form a plan to stop this war before it ever begins, and for that Wolverine has to travel decades back in time. He has to find young professor and young Magneto, convince them of the future threat and stop the birth of the sentinels.

It is a fantastic adventure with an amazing cast that got me interested to watch X-Men once again. The special effects are fabulous and the story is catching, although traveling back in time always leaves me a little baffled. I loved watching the difference between the future and the 70’s aesthetics. I know that there are plans for new X-Men adventures to follow, but this film could have been the perfect ending.
