Mad Max: Fury Road

By s. Sunday, May 31, 2015 , , , , , , , , 39 Comments
It's really hard to describe Mad Max: Fury Road. It is first and foremost a film you need to experience. No amount of words and descriptions can really help you understand or prepare you for the film's hellish pace, spellbinding visuals and intensity.

  • I'm referring, of course, to the annual Stoneheart hype.
  • Casting news for season 6 were released on Tuesday and while most fans basically almost shat themselves because Euron Greyjoy (who most assumed was cut) apparently is gonna show up in sixth season. But another tidbit leads me and the others to believe Septon Meribald is gonna be in the show.
  • He is in Riverlands in the books.
  • Walder Frey was rumored to be returning a while back.
  • SHE is in Riverlands....

    Game of Thrones 5x07 The Gift

    By s. Monday, May 25, 2015 , 27 Comments

    This week on Thrones we got honest to God consensual sex scene. And that's not even the most shocking development in the episode. Two fan favorites finally meet, Sansa starts doing something other than being miserable - though there is still plenty of that and King Stannis makes me both turned on and incredibly worried.

    Here we go:

  • Thrones outrage was overwhelming this week.  Tumblr almost shat itself, the showrunners probably hid in panic room and Sophie Turner was even accused of promoting rape because she said she 'loved' that the story went there, meaning she likes to shoot challenging scenes. I mean Sophie Is 19, let's give her a break. I'm 25 and look at the dumb shit I write weekly and actually torture you with it
  •  What an overreaction.
  • That the popular culture stuff like movies and TV series depict rape for - at least now as it seems in Sansa storyline - no good reason is irresponsible. But in their livid rage those outraged are bringing it to real world further saying that Sansa is broken now. My God! People are going through horrible things in life, including rape, yet they are able to go on. I imagine for a rape survivor to watch a scene was unpleasant but what was truly the worst would be reading an article and reading that a rape victim is automatically 'broken', 'tainted' forever. I bet the people who say crap like this don't even realize that what they are doing is 10x worse than what the writers did.

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    By s. Wednesday, May 20, 2015 , , , , , , , 28 Comments

    To make a fun and light superhero movie is a hard thing to pull off. But what's even harder? Making a follow up that at least matches the first film's quality. Three years ago almost everyone loved having fun with Avengers. The film was very entertaining, well done and featured terrific cast, great villain and a good balance between drama and comedy.

    Now comes Age of Ultron which, sadly, is the worst kind of a sequel - not only is it nowhere near the greatness of the first movie, but it makes you the characters you enjoyed so much during the first adventure a little bit worse.

    Game of Thrones 5x05 Kill the Boy

    By s. Monday, May 11, 2015 , 26 Comments
    This week on Thrones things got progressively worse for few characters. The men in Daenerys' life are either getting killed by basic bitches in Meereen, being stuck in a pointless romance side plot or contracting the cross between rabies and leprosy, while Sansa is discovering the depths of the shitshow run by the Boltons in Winterfell. And also - I fear for the lives of absolutely every decent character in the Northern storyline.

    We open and check in with Jorah who loads unconscious Tyrion on a boat. The lighting in this scene is worse than in most Stannis' scenes, so that's one hell of an accomplishment. Also there is no Genry rowing in the background, so opportunity missed?
