  1. Really, a political thriller, tragedy, domestic drama, spy showdown, grift is exactly what happens in the Bond movie Skyfall. Skyfall happens to be considered one of the best Bond movies of all time, if not the best. Skyfall‘s dynamic breadth yields a depth to the Bond character that no other Bond movie had ever had, raising the stakes from simple “political thriller, spy showdown” stuff to something that felt large and important and emotional.

    “Skyfall” was utter shit. I had spotted so many plot holes in its narrative that I could barely keep count. As a long time Bond fan, I could not believe that critics regard the movie as one of the best in the franchise.

    As for Sansa and Arya . . . what I found unbelievable about this whole plot is why Littlefinger and the Arye army were hanging around Winterfell? For what reason? Because of the Whitewalkers? Why did Littlefinger think it was necessary to create conflict between Sansa and Arya? Shouldn’t he have saved his scheming for Jon’s return? Didn’t he even suspect that hardly anyone – including Sansa – didn’t trust him? She and everyone else were practically giving off vibes of distrust. I don’t know if this was deliberate or a case of bad acting on the actors’ part – especially Sophie Turner.
