  • That awkward moment of the year when the current season of Thrones didn't even end yet and you are already waiting for the next one.

    Mac and Kelly are trying to have sex in their dining room. Mac keeps saying how hot it is that they are having sex on a chair. And then he notices that their little baby Stella is staring at them. Kelly points out it's nothing, she is simply seeing shapes. To which Mac replies 'yeah, the shapes that are fucking!'

    Favorite Game of Thrones scenes - 1x01-4x07

    By s. Sunday, May 25, 2014 16 Comments
    You may remember that a while back I published my list of my favorite Game of Thrones scenes (part 1, part 2). Since today is the Sunday of Doom - because of Memorial Day weekend in US HBO is not airing the new episode anywhere in the world, I figured that I will update my top 10 scenes with season 3 and season 4 scenes.

  •  ['Hero' by Enrique Iglesias plays in the background]
  • Chills. Can they just give Pascal all the awards? My God I was hyperventilating during that scene. I cannot believe we have to wait until next Sunday for the next episode.

    Lovely Brittani or Rambling Film is hosting her first ever blogathon. It revolves around the idea of choosing your favorite movie titles, for each letter of the alphabet. You don't have to like the movies you choose or even watch them, I suppose, but as it happens the ones I chose are all the films I enjoyed.


    1) Going through the alphabet, list your favorite movie title beginning with each letter.

    Game of Thrones 4x07 Mockingbird

    By s. Monday, May 19, 2014 , 46 Comments
    Mockingbird - in spite of being the last episode before the storm - the remaining 3 episodes of the season are like a gigantic equivalent of your usual big episode 9 - turned out to be the greatest episode of the season. There were some hiccups and flaws but when the scenes worked? They went right into Thrones hall of fame.

    We open with Tyrion being yelled at by Jaime in his cell. Jaime is furious that Tyrion threw away his chance to live. Tyrion asks him if Jaime would be his champion, but Jaime admits to him that he no longer can be considered a great swordsman.

  • So there is this really cool interview with Peter Dinklage. Everyone is excited because the showrunners got drunk and gave him hints about the ending. Who cares. Go to 2:20.

    Game of Thrones 4x06 The Laws of Gods and Men

    By s. Monday, May 12, 2014 , 54 Comments

    The Laws of Gods and Men is, so far, the best episode of the season. While I did enjoy the Purple Wedding as a stand-alone sequence more than the trial and episode 2 ending is my favorite so far, this episode was far better mostly because of the strong script and directing (and in spite of some questionable choices made by some of the actors). Almost every scene was very good and the episode felt very well planned and carefully orchestrated.

  • You know what they should do? They should make the mention of the fact that Stannis has rapists castrated. Mad-eyed ultra feminists and other professionally outraged idiots are still going on and on about the rape scene so making a mention of that would not only get audiences to like Stannis more and give them a sense of what kind of a men he is, it would also help with all that outrage. Hey look, a decent male character who is actually appalled with sexual violence and does something to stop it.

    Game of Thrones 4x05 First of His Name

    By s. Monday, May 5, 2014 , 44 Comments

    Mid-season, Game of Thrones has thrown a very interesting episode our way - First of his Name. Last year, at this point we got terrific Kissed by Fire - it looks like this year a truly strong episode will arrive next week. But First of His Name, while containing some truly worrying decisions from the showrunnes also brought with it a whole lot of clever hints, awesome action and tons of crazy from Lysa Arryn.

    Before I get to the content of the ep, how freaking lazy are the opening credits this year? Dreadfort is there all the time, and where was Eyrie? I'm disappointed with the lack of work they put in there this year.

    (129) The squire, the candy and the were-hyena + links

  • Seriously, how awesome is Podrick?
  • As fun as Arya and the Hound are...Brienne and Podrick will likely be much more entertaining. They improved his character so much in the show. That's the beauty of the series - a legendary and mysterious brothel adventure, spot on casting, several charming scenes and one genius cutaway later and we all love the character.
  • I'm still so disturbed by the ending. I couldn't believe they went there. Never mind the baby being in such a horribly nightmarish scene, that shit wasn't revealed yet in the books! I was drinking while watching the episode and when that scene started I actually thought to myself Jesus Christ, how drunk am I? Is it Thor The Dark World? Is Loki there? No, that's wrong franchise... (brain pause) WHERE IS STANNIS?! And then I was like WOAH. This is accurate.
