The Game of Thrones photoshoot by Annie Lebowitz and the article in Vanity Fair are gifts that keep on giving.
We all worry that George R.R Martin will not be able to finish the books especially that he seems to be doing everything else (including fanboying over True Detective on his blog) but writing them. I'm not the one to judge, since I am blogging instead of studying, but hey, no one is paying me to study. Anyways one of the show runners - David Benioff has good news - “Last year we went out to Santa Fe for a week to
sit down with him and just talk through where things are going,
because we don’t know if we are going to catch up and where exactly
that would be. If you know the ending, then you can lay the groundwork
for it. And so we want to know how everything ends. We want to be able
to set things up. So we just sat down with him and literally went
through every character.”
Personally,. I think there is no way we are seeing the final book unless his editor threatens to shoot him or Martin actually already wrote it, has it in his apartment's safe and has been trolling us this whole time. I think Winds of Winter is getting released but the Dream of Spring? I think we can only dream indeed.
Unfortunately, the plan now is 7 seasons
which I think is one season short. Things are going to get cut left and
right starting next year and I'm now 90% sure book 3 epilogue will be
merged with a certain noble character witnessing something horrific as the final scene this season.
I don't like this idea at all as I consider the epilogue of book 3 to
be the scariest sequence in the books and merging it with the other
character's chapter takes the focus away from my most anticipated
I just hope they won't cut the Northern conspiracy subplot in the future seasons. I really want to see Frey Pies and the show making the point that the Northerners really never forgot and have so much respect for the Starks.
I can actually hear fandom screaming as I look on that gif on the left. A Song of Ice and Fire, indeed.
Apparently the screeners for the first episodes have been sent out so hopefully the first reviews will start appearing online soon. I can't wait to read about the second episode. What I really can't wait for, though, are fan reactions to it. I don't think many things about season 4 were spoiled, considering how many plot twists and unexpected events there are in this upcoming season.
Winter is Coming has two awesome on the set of photoshoot videos with the cast being all adorable.
Iain Glen''s loyalty knows no bounds:
And how about that new trailer? I actually still like the first trailer the most but the new one had some awesome editing. Tywin was a boss in every single moment of it.
I saw Ghosts of Girlfriends Past last weekend. It wasn't that bad - Emma Stone was in it and she is always cute and Matthew looked amazing plus he had several very romantic scenes. It was also so much fun seeing Jennifer Garner playing his love interest, considering they were both in Dallas Buyers Club.
OK let's talk about that True Detective finale.
That moment Rust cried? Oh God. I can't look at shit like that - he cries, I cry. Someone hold him!
The scenes with him walking among those branches and looking at that spiral were so beautiful.
As much as I liked the ending, I kinda kept hoping they went with Matthew's idea:
I'm gonna miss these guys so much:
Lena Dunhammay quit acting after Girls. Please go. Just crawl back into whatever trash can you came out of. A world without her face and opinions? Sounds like a dream.
How is Hannibal airing on NBC?! Although the most shocking thing about the show is how imaginative gore from season 1 turned into tasteless shock value gore in season 2. That recent episode's opening was nasty but the worst thing about it was how painfully unnecessary it was.
Unlike new Maleficent stills the newest poster is impressive.
It's disturbing that when Michael B. Jordan was cast as a white guy in Fantastic Four no one was as outraged as with this whole Mara is Tiger Lily news. So it's perfectly fine to cast someone black to play a character that was white but it's a horrible casting for a white girl to play a Native American character? I see the same people who rejoiced about Jordan's casting now bitching about Mara. Have some integrity, for the love of God.
I didn't see recent SNL because Dunham was hosting it and I didn't want to get blinded but thisLiam Neeson bit is hilarious.
Occasionally watching Shameless is like a visit to the House of Horrors.
The birth scene in 2x11 was fucking horrific - why would any woman do
that?! No way I'm doing that, ever. And then the whole circumcision talk
in season 3 - America, what is your obsession with that? That procedure is barbaric. Here in Europe you don't see this often. Leave your sons alone.
Kevin finding out him and Veronica are having triplets was fucking priceless:
Ladies and gentlemen we finally got to meet little Swanson in new Parks and Rec and it was awesome.
I'm all caught up on Conan, I also tried giving Seth Meyers a shot - holy shit that first episode was disastrous. I like Amy Poehler but she has such an annoying laugh. Also she shouted most of her answers. Joe Biden was actually the only watchable person this episode.
m.brown reviews charming About Time. He didn't like Harry, though!
Chris reviews The Grand Budapest Hotel. I'll see this one for Ralph Fiennes even though I think Anderson is a sick fuck - he hates animals. Just look what he does to them in his movies.
