Spectre…

First look of Daniel Craig in his latest “Bond” movie Spectre

Director Sam Mendes hinted at more made up backstories for the Bond characters:

“He is on the hunt, on the trail, of somebody. You don’t know why, you don’t know what he’s doing there. That sense that something is up is also tied to a second part of a crucial story of Bond’s childhood. So once that was clear that those huge things were on the table, I felt like I had to do it.”

Mendes added: “And then on top of that I felt like I’d initiated Ralph [Fiennes] as M, Naomie [Harris] as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q, and I felt like I wanted to tell the next stage in their stories and develop them as characters much, much more. In this movie, in a way, they help him and they all, in different ways, risk their careers and risk their livelihoods.

“I think what’s happened post-Skyfall is Bond is the one who has more experience than they do, and I think he’s got a greater wisdom. That’s very much what the movie’s about. It’s about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued, whether he matters and is he going to continue or not. And you’re going to have to come to see the movie to find out whether he does.”

    Back in the day, you bought a tckeit and stayed until you were ready to leave; so in my teen years, I saw a number of movies more than once. The movie I paid to see the most was “Animal House,” which I saw in at least ten different shows. This is followed closely by “Blazing Saddles,” which was the last time I was told I needed a parent or adult guardian to get into a movie! I must have seen that (with or without aforementioned guardian) at least six times in its first release. I think the last movie I saw more than once in the theater was “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
