    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Saw this film when it first came out with my older sister, I was in high school and she invited me to skip class to go see it together one afternoon. We saw it in a local art house cinema, it was almost empty and I remember the agony of watching those sex scenes ahah, definitely among the cringiest moments of my teenage years.

    One of the best Bond with Daniel Craig, feels like another great hommage to the franchise while bringing new storylines (the closest we will get to an origin story) and new blood: New Q, new M, new MoneyPenny.

    Kind of a mixed bag, the film has a lot going for it but also feels too ambitious for its own good at times. Stunning visuals and very cool lore as expected, I am however growing a bit tired of seeing the same actors over and over again but that's just big Hollywood movies I guess.

    Great experience on the big screen overall, and I think time and the subsequent movie might make this even better down the line. My interest is definitely piqued.
