Radiohead releases their version of “Spectre” theme and it’s amazing… woah!!!

It looks  like Radiohead is about ready to make their return to the industry in 2016. Not only that the band dropped a new song today which is their version of the “Spectre” theme song that got rejected from the movie, they also started teasing a new album for 2016. So their next album will be their follow-up from their 2011 album, “The King of Limbs”. So it’s been about 5 years since Radiohead hasn’t release new music.

Well, here is Radiohead’s version of the “Spectre” theme song which is pretty amazing stuff. I wished they used this theme song for “Spectre” instead of Sam Smith’s “Writing on the Wall”. I hated Sam Smith’s song. Of course, they had to pick the Sam Smith one instead so they can fit into the pop culture, ya know? That’s the only reason they did it. Radiohead doesn’t fit into the pop culture which is why they were rejected. Radiohead isn’t much of a mainstream band which is good. Radiohead used to be a big mainstream band but not anymore, though.

Check out Radiohead’s version of “Spectre”. Thom’s voice sends chills like usual. I’ve always been a big Radiohead fan and looking forward to their next album.

Film Review: “Spectre”…

Starring: Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz

Directed by: Sam Mendes

So today I went to the mall to check out the latest 007 film, “Spectre”.

Plot/Synopsis: A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre of National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6 led by M. Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny and Q to help him seek out Madeleine Swann, the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White, who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of the assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot. As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.

Media is trashing the new Bond film like mad. All the so-called professional critics giving the film negative reviews all over but I don’t listen to other critics. I just watch a movie and give it my own opinion. Following popular opinion is boring to me. If everyone likes a certain film and if I don’t like it, I won’t be afraid to say it. If everyone hates a certain film and if I like it, I won’t be afraid to say it.

Don’t listen to the negative critics out there. Just go out and see it ’cause the film was that damn good. I thought it was WAY better than “Skyfall” and I thought “Spectre” topped that film for sure. I was real impressed with “Spectre”. I thought the writing was really good and Sam Mendes did an interesting take on his version of SPECTRE the underground terrorist group. I thought Christoph Waltz killed it as Blofeld the SPECTRE leader & boss.

This film had a lot of action, of course. The action scenes were more fun in this movie than “Skyfall”. I thought Dave Bautista’s character, Mr. Hinx was a pretty badass villain. He’s probably one of the best 007 villains of all time, in my opinion. Bautista did a great job playing him even though the character said one line, the character didn’t say much in the movie at all but he just walked around looking like a tough guy. Bond and Mr. Hinx had a pretty intense fight scene together on a train.

I’m also reading a lot of negative critics toward the Bond girls. Media trashing the Bond girls as well. Are they serious? I thought Dr. Madeline Swann who was the blond girl in the movie was freakin’ gorgeous and hot. Plus, Monica Bellucci *drool*. Monica maybe around 50 years old but she’s still a pretty hot MILF. Once again don’t listen to the critics. They wanna say how he’s a raging “misogynist” but I don’t see how. Daniel Craig himself may have said that Bond was a raging “misogynist” but even Craig himself is opinionated. Go back and watch the old Sean Connery and Roger Moore 007 flicks, you would see that Bond always cared for women. Bond definitely showed that in “Spectre” ’cause he was supposed to keep Dr. Swann alive and he ends up falling in love with her, of course so I think Daniel is full of it.

I thought this was a really great Bond film and this is gonna be the final Daniel Craig Bond film ’cause they are moving on with someone else in the next one. Daniel wants to be done with these movies and he wants to move on. I can’t blame him ’cause he’s been on this franchise for years now and he’s probably sick of it.

Score for “Spectre” = **** 4 stars as in “Excellent”.

Ellie Goulding is the artist for opening theme of “Spectre”??? Seems so…

It seems that Ellie Goulding, a pop singer from the UK will be the artist for the opening theme song of James Bond’s next film, “Spectre”. She drops a big hint in the photo above leaving Abbey Road Studios. Remember now, Adelle recorded her “Skyfall” theme at the same studio.

Weird. I never really heard of Ellie Goulding until now.

007 “Spectre” trailer is finally here!

Not only will this be the final James Bond film for director Sam Mendes, will this also be the final Bond film for Daniel Craig as well? This trailer is giving us hints that this could be the last Daniel Craig 007 film ’cause Bond wants to “disappear”.

There’s been a lot of talk that Sony wants Bond to be a black guy in the next film after this one. Will Idris Elba be the next Bond? They already changed the Miss Moneypenny character to a black woman so maybe that’s a sign?

Anyway, I think “Spectre” looks great and can’t wait for it. I’m a huge Bond fan. Seen every film.

James Bond returns to Spectre island as I told you before!!!

When Sony announced that the title of the next Bond film is gonna be “Spectre”, I knew just by the title alone that this is gonna be the return of Spectre Island and the return of the main villain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld who is the leader of Spectre. Christoph Waltz will be playing Blofeld as you can see in the trailer. I was right all along!

The film looks great and already feeling goosebumps!

No big action scenes yet but definitely the next trailer. This one is just a teaser! The story does look like it’s a continuation from “Skyfall”. I don’t think “Spectre” will top “Skyfall” but we’ll wait and see.

Why I believe Daniel Craig is wearing all black on the “Spectre” poster…

I know a lot of people find the Spectre poster with Daniel Craig wearing all black and a turtle neck kind of silly but there’s a reason he’s wearing all black. They are definitely teasing you something and I’m about to tell you what it is.

When 007 is wearing all black like that, he’s giving you a hint that he’s about ready to sneak around somewhere. He’s about to sneak around somewhere when it’s dark out so he can’t be seen by the bad guys. I assume he’s probably gonna be sneaking around on Spectre island and stealth his way into the volcano base as you saw in the film, “You Only Live Twice”. He’s probably gonna be sneaking around until he confronts Blofeld who is the leader of Spectre. Blofeld is probably gonna be played by Christoph Waltz. Blofeld appeared in other 007 films before but he was played by other actors.

The new poster is just a teaser… teasing you that Spectre is making a comeback in the next 007 film. I think we’ll get a teaser trailer pretty soon revealing more that the terrorist group named Spectre is making a big return.

Like I said before, if you’re a longtime Bond fan, you’d probably already know what Spectre is. I’m sure there’s a lot of new Bond fans who haven’t even seen the older films so the new fans won’t know what Spectre is.

Will we see the return of the volcano base? I think there’s a pretty good chance we will. “You Only Live Twice” is a pretty sick 007 film, though.

Who’s gonna sing the theme for 007 “Spectre”???

In the open title sequence for each Bond film, everybody should know that MGM writes an original song w/ lyrics that has something to do with the title and then they would hire a famous singer to sing the song. Over the years, have been mostly female singers that sung the 007 theme song but sometimes they would get male singers. I remember Chris Cornell of Soundgarden sung the theme song for “Casino Royale”. Madonna already did a theme song, she did the theme for “The World Is Not Enough” and she even had a role in the film too.

It’s been announced by Sam Mendes and MGM that a singer for “Spectre” have already been chosen but nobody’s talking on who it is yet.

http://www.mtv.co.uk/james-bond/news/spectre-theme-song-singer-has-already-been-chosen

I wouldn’t be surprised if the singer is gonna be these 5:

-Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett (with them together)
-Barbara Streisand (she never did a Bond theme yet, surprisingly)
-Katy Perry
-Beyonce
-Rihanna

If they’re gonna go for a male singer, they’d go for Tony Bennett, John Legend, Prince or Bruno Mars.

I’m probably gonna be wrong on all of these but these are pretty good guesses. We’ll soon find out who the singer is gonna be for “Spectre”.
