Spectre / Top 5 Bond Tropes

Daniel Craig’s James Bond is more serious, more human and more haunted than his predecessors. Does that make him the best? (Yes, actually it does.) Craig’s fourth and latest outing as Bond, SPECTRE, topped the box office in its opening weekend. Adam and Josh review and share their Top 5 Bond Tropes with the help of special guest Bond expert Chris Klimek.
