Have You Ever Watched A Bond Movie Before?
What is wrong with you people? I mean all the things you criticize about this movie, exist in the whole franchise.
Well since Craig has became the new Bond, obviously these movies got serious for the first time after From Russia With Love, and Casino Royal and Skyfall were absolutely wonderful (Quantum of Solace was eh). But Spectre is not bad. Actually, Spectre is more of a Bond movie than the other three with Craig. It has humour, gadgets, ridiculous moments and anything else belonging to the old days.
If you had seen all 24 movies, you should have known that the essence is constantly changing. And just because a lighter Spectre follows three much darker movies, it doesn't mean it's worse.
It is an easy watch and quite entertaining just like Thunderball or The Spy Who Loved Me and definitely better than You Only Live Twice etc.

Palo Alto (2013)
Why does it even exist?
It is supposed to be a high school drama, right? Well, it is not. There is no plot, no message to give and the cinematography is not worth watching. I can't even give spoilers, there is no way to spoil Palo Alto: it is already terrible! I can't say anything about the acting because there isn't anything to act in this movie. So I cannot be sure if the actors were convincing. Characters have no background story, we don't get the chance to know why they behave the way they do. Don't tell me because they are teenagers: I am also a senior and my life is nothing like that or my friends'. This movie is pointless and boring and these are not the reasons why I hated it. I hated it because it is one of those movies (the worst one actually) made to show "how painful the teenage life can be". Let me get this straight: it is not. We are not shallow as they show us in these movies. Of course we have some problems but not these kind of things. This movie is not realistic or it doesn't capture the essence of teenage life. To sum up: It is not "one of the best movies ever made about high school life in America". No, it is the worst. But, it may be "a knockout". It surely knocks you out of boredom. Trust me, don't watch it. If you haven't already.
Hemlock Grove (2013)
Not really sure
Well, I have only watched 3 episodes and confused by the mixed reviews. Some became insane fans and some just hated everything about the show. I am not sure what to think about it yet.
I want to start with the cast. I believe casting is nice and actors are quite good. There's definitely NO PROBLEM with the acting.
I think I would love the story line if I was able to understand it completely. I mean it seems interesting, yet complicated. Some say they don't explain anything in next episodes and some say wait, So, I think I stick with the waiting and see it myself.
And I agree, editing is so goddamn awful, it jumps from scene to scene and it takes a while to catch up. I also have to state some parts of the script is kinda nonsense, maybe it's because I'm watching it with subtitles.
On the other side there's something about this show, I don't know if it's the filming or special effects (that werewolf transformation, phew!) or Bill Skarsgård's himself, but I'm going to watch all the episodes and decide what to think then. One shouldn't jump into conclusions very quickly, right?
