Spectre-cular is DANIEL CRAIG

As Spectre's Mexico City's Premier coincided with 'Day of the Dead' festival, I too decided to follow this eerie suit. I rushed to publish this review to go live on Friday the 13th! Boo... :-Ooo
Happy 'Day of the Eerie' Fri the 13th!

After almost a decade, I finally like the concept of two gender 'blonds' in a James Bond poster. 

Growing up with one of my favourite movie heroes, one new word, 'Spectrecular!'. It may not be as dramatic as 'Skyfall' but it has lived up to my expectations J In terms of spy gadgets, I am sure DANIEL CRAIG's James Bond fans will know what to expect. Car chases are more humourous than exciting. This is definitely a new approach to James Bond films. 

Costumes now are very traditionally James Bond with much more colour to life too. Since DANIEL CRAIG's James Bond 'Casino Royale' debut in 2006, this franchise has broken many traditionsL. He is the first blond-Bond and featuring more dramatic than gadgetry. I hated all these breakaways...Grr >:-( Spectre also featured  MONICA BELLUCI with the role of Lucia Sciarra setting another feat as the oldest Bond girl. Unexpectedly, I have started to develop a 'crush' for DANIEL CRAIG's James Bond since 'Skyfall'. In 'Spectre' I can sincerely write that I like him now. This is despite another James Bond tradition broken with the absence of my favourite the casino scene. I am very sad ToT that 'Spectre' will be his last James Bond appearance, now that I like him.   

Opening scene, first time ever Mexican Bond girl, Stephanie Sigman with a very colourful dress matching 'Day of the Dead' mask. This is fashionably fabulous by breaking the tradition of colour and horror...Boo!

Bond girl, Dr. Madeline Swann, in a very typical dress. Feminine and bright really got the attention of other patrons. Look carefully and you will know what I mean.

 Who says horror cannot be associated vibrant cOLOURs? I like this festival already :-O

At this time in writing, with 'Skyfall' being the seventh-highest-grossing film, the highest-grossing film in the UK, the highest-grossing film in the Bond series, the highest-grossing film worldwide for both Sony Pictures and MGM, the second-highest-grossing film of 2012, winning several accolades, including two BAFTA Awards, two Academy Awards and for the FIRST time, two Grammys, DANIEL CRAIG deserves to be hailed the greatest James Bond to date. I am also proud to live this era when 'Spectre' having the Largest Film Stunt Explosion, may be more 'Spectrecular' than 'Skyfall'.  Thank you DANIEL CRAIG J for this revolutionary James Bond 007""
