    Just Spectre for me. I enjoyed Wonder Woman and American Hustle, but not as much as Spectre.

    Spectre has the unfortunate disadvantage of following one of the best Bond films ever made. It got a lot of hate just because it isn't as good as Skyfall. But it's still pretty good.

    Tbf you're not wrong, but Spectre has a lot of shortcomings which independent of its status as a follow up to Skyfall. Still, I did enjoy the film and even own the blu ray for it. Hell I feel like watching it right now.

    Looks like it's an unpopular opinion but I felt that Spectre shouldn't have even been nominated, much less seconded, much less close to moving onto Round 4.

    I was bored watching it.

    I liked it, but as I said, it’s “pretty good”. Not saying it’s brilliant, just saying it got a lot more flak than it deserved, I think.

    No, I agree with that. It's only getting votes because it's a Bond film. If it wasn't connected to that franchise, it wouldn't even have been nominated.

    Huh. I have a hard time disagreeing with that actually.

    Still, that opening tracking shot of Bond in that Dia de Los Muertos celebration is a thing of beauty. So was that fight with Bautista's character in the speeding train.

    The tracking shot was definitely the highlight of the film.
