Spectre Is Back with The Ultimate James Bond Villain

Christoph-BaldFinally, Spectre is back in the realm of James Bond as the ultimate terrorist organization out for ultimate profits with mayhem and it’s up to 007 to disrupt their group once and for all but the producers are keeping a tight lip about their motivations within the script but we do know that the most dangerous villain Bond has yet to face in over 3 movies starring Daniel Craig is now being revealed as Blofeld himself and he will be played by no other than the most celebrated actor ever to play a villain, Christoph Waltz from 2009’s Unglourious Basterds and 2012’s Django Unchained.

It’s a new day and age for terrorism for profit and yet it will be particularly amiss if the writers and producers decide to skip over the nostalgic kitsch that we have all have grown up expecting to see from Ernst Stavro Blofeld from movies like From Russia With Love, You Only Live Twice as well as On her Majesty Secret Service, stroking a docile blue-eyed haired cat, eliminating failed operatives with a push of a button and sending out Number 2 to dole out his dirty work but I suspect that the Academy Award and Golden Globe wining director, Sam Mendes who directed the last James Bond film, Skyfall and has brought us Award wining films like American Beauty and Road To Perdition will insist on bringing the wit and realism that today’s audiences seem to enjoy and expect from Sam Mendes films.

Andrew-ScottNow I do suspect that the movie will be filled with a tremendous amount of witty dialog for Blofeld since they picked an actor who can deliver his lines with such delight and overstatement at just the right moments without overselling the scene that you will look forward to watching him over and over again when the video shows up on Netflix sometime in 2016. I, on the other hand, want to see interactions between Christoph’s Blofeld and  Andrew Scott, the glorious master criminal Moriarty in the BBC series Sherlock playing an MI6 agent in this outing as well as Monica Bellucci’s character, Lucia Sciarra in the movie as one of the Bond Girls in Spectre.
