Spectre is a must-see

‘Spectre’          

 4/5 Derricks

This movie was very good, but not the best of the Daniel Craig era of Bond. The action scenes were awesome and the story was worth seeing in theaters. This movie connects all of the previous movies and makes sense of how all the villains are connected. I felt the love story part of the movie was the weakest of all of his movies, and I felt the hitman part played by Dave Batista could have been better as well. The chases, the settings, and the smart remarks are all signature Bond. Even though many think this will be the last of Craig era, I still feel he has enough for one more go. Overall, this movie is definitely worth seeing in theaters, or even when it comes out on DVD.

There are many movies coming out over the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks that are worth seeing.

To start over Thanksgiving the end of the Hunger Games saga, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2,” comes out Nov. 20.

Another movie worth seeing over Thanksgiving break is “Creed,” which is a movie the splits off from the Sylvester Stallone “Rocky” movies. “Creed” is based on the son of one of Rocky’s former opponent’s son and his struggle to be a boxer.

To get you in the Christmas spirit early, Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie play three friends who always spend Christmas Eve together in the comedy “The Night Before.”

“Creed” and “The Night Before” are set to release Nov. 25.

Other movie releases include; “Point Break,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Concussion,” “Hateful Eight,” “Krampus,” and “The Revenant.”

By far the biggest and most anticipated release of the holiday season is the next film in the “Star Wars” saga. “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” takes place after “The Return of the Jedi.” Disney has kept the plot of the movie a secret so all that is known is there on new faces on both the rebel alliance and the new evil empire. “Star Wars” is set to hit theaters Dec. 18.
