TRAILER OF THE WEEK

Not necessarily a trailer, but a hint of  the good things that Spectre has to offer. For those who haven’t followed this writer on social media outlets, something about this new Bond entry has seemed off to me so far, but this fight scene feels raw and exciting in a way that comes across as unexpected, and has reinvigorated my enthusiasm going forward.
