Action, adventure meets the screen

It’s the most wonderful time of the year–a time when holiday blockbusters begin to make an appearance. This year’s movies are sure to be classics, so pack up your family, head to the nearest movie theater and make some unforgettable memories.

Spectre, PG-13
Has Bond finally met his match? 007 has always been a fascinating, mysterious character. This generation’s Bond, Daniel Craig, has definitely portrayed this role well.

The film opens in a classic 007 style–a beautiful city during an event, a shady character, and Bond who, of course, has a stunning woman in his arms. Then you see the shady character leave the big event and Bond follows.

Next thing you know Bond is eavesdropping on the villains’ conversation. Something happens that gives Bond away. Then, BANG! There’s an explosion that hints at the identity of the main antagonist.

From there the film leads into the opening credits, along with the new James Bond song, “Writings on the Wall,” which is performed by the very talented English singer, Sam Smith, who doesn’t disappoint. The song fits perfectly with the theme and the story of this 007 movie.

The opening credits for Spectre are definitely one of the best parts of this movie. This wasn’t like any other movie that just puts the title of the movie and the big actors name in it. These opening credits are a masterpiece –a movie of their own. It gives you an idea of how the movie will be portrayed.

The antagonist of this film is different from the others. In this film you learn that the villain has been watching Bond since childhood. It takes Bond a while to realize who this foe is.

This movie is filled with so many twists and turns, and sheds some light on who James Bond is. And if this is Daniel Craig’s last time as the legendary 007, he went out with a bang.

The movie once again proves that James Bond is the best spy around, and his movies are some of the best around.

Mockingjay Part II (trailer review), PG-13
Tell me where the sign up list is to help District 13 overthrow President Snow. As a huge fan of both the books and the films, I am sad to see that the series is coming to an end. But at the same time I am really excited to see how they will conclude this series.

This trailer had me captivated from the beginning to the end. Katniss, who is portrayed by Oscar Winner Jennifer Lawrence, gives a motivational speech that will make fans feel like they can take on the world.

In this film, we can expect emotions to run high with Finnick’s wedding and an unexpected death. It’s sure to leave fans in tears.

Since this is a movie of war, you can also expect some amazing fight scenes. So if you find yourself bored or unmotivated, just pull up this trailer. Katniss’s speech is bound to motivate anyone into clamoring to the theater to catch this film when it hits theaters on Nov. 20.

Krampus (trailer review ),
PG-13
A horror Christmas movie. That seems like something that would never happen. As a huge fan of the horror movie genre, I am excited to see what this film has to offer, and how it will turn out.

For those who have not watched the trailer, I encourage you to do so. The film, according to the trailer, appears to be about a family who does not get along. Christmas dinner is a disaster and a wish that Christmas would go away leads to trouble.

Now the family has to find a way to survive even though they are trapped in a snowstorm with no food or supplies, and the shadow of Santa Clause lurks in the darkness.

This is definitely a different type of film. The outcome of this film will most likely determine whether or not more movies like it will follow.

Here’s something to ponder: will this movie be more like a Christmas movie or a horror movie? The only way to know for sure is to check it out, when it hits theaters Dec. 4.
