Dog’s Movie House: “Spectre” Solid, Almost Old School Bond!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog!
I make no apologies in my opinion of Daniel Craig as the best incarnation of James Bond. Craig’s Bond is a badass of the first order, dispensing his particular skills (sorry, Liam Neeson) with utter precision and brutality.

This is from a recent episode of Colbert’s “The Late Show.” Bonus points for Craig barely keeping it together during the long sketch. Enjoy! So Sayeth The Kendog! Continue reading
