Long time, no see.
Today I’m going to talk about London and about the new movie ‘Spectre’.
Yesterday I went to see Spectre, the new blockbuster from the James Bond series.
This movie has everything a Bond movie should have. Beautiful and intriguing women, spectacular car races, bloody gun fights and marvelous suits.
This is one of the best James Bond movies yet. Before I saw this movie, ‘Skyfall’ was my absolute favorite because of the breathtaking scenery that was used in the movie. Scotland, so beautiful! Because of the beautiful location that was used in the movie, I thought this was definitely going to be the best James Bond film ever made… But then I went to see Spectre!
The movie starts in Mexico. James Bond is walking around Mexico City during ‘Dias de los muertos’. Not only do I Love Mexico (especially the food (I’m a real guaca-monster)), I also LOVE this holiday which celebrates the dead. So, the movie immediately had my attention. The first fight scenes were very nicely filmed and you couldn’t get your eyes of the screen. After that first scene, just like in every James Bond movie ever made, the intro song started playing. Normally I really like the James Bond theme songs, but this time I was disappointed. I didn’t really like Sam Smith’s song…
But that’s the only negative thing I can say about SPECTRE. The plot is very good, everything falls into place. You can tie different movies together. The new Aston Martin is MARVELOUS. I didn’t understand that boys could fall in love with a car. But I changed my mind because yesterday I fell in love with the new model from Aston Martin. The car race which took place in the heart of Rome was magnificent and it was definitely my favorite part about the movie. And as if it couldn’t get any beter… James Bond went looking for clues in Austria. The snow, the mountains, the sky… definitely as beautiful as the Scotland scenery.
What I also loved about the movie is the performance from the actor who played Q. I am always very impressed by gadgets and the way Q tries to find clues is very nice in this movie.
Although most James Bond movies are extremely predictable… (Bond always gets the woman, Bond always wins the car races and James just ALWAYS wins) … the movie was really good and less predictable than any other James movie ever made. I was extremely suprised and I’m not planning on watching this movie just once.
I was already planning on going to London this year with my boyfriend. And after seeing this Bond movie, I really really really want to go. I also want to go before the new Harry Potter Spin-off comes out. I already went to London once, but my boyfriend never did… So this is the perfect opportunity to hop on the Hogwarts train. I can’t wait to drink a warm cup of tea with a delicious piece of cake. I can’t wait to walk through the enchanting streets and talk like an intelligent English(wo)man. I can’t wait to visit every Harry Potter location in London there is. I can’t wait to hear the sentence “MIND THE GAP” 87 times a day. I can’t wait to go drink a refreshing beer in a small and intimate pub. And i definitely can’t wait to just stroll around in the small and bumpy streets in London.
One of the other reasons I want to go back to this magical City, is because I have never been to WARNER BROS STUDIOS (the place where they filmed most of the scenes in the Harry Potter movies) and I also want to buy some new wands to add to my small collection.
Hope you enjoyed my little blogpost about Bond and London. I’m going to make myself a cup of tea and lay down in the sofa.
It is our choices… that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
