Game of Thrones Will Continue Without Books (Article) - 7/16/2014 8:36:56 AM

Once the bulk of the show storylines begins to overtake the books, I'll temporarily stop watching.  I'll buy the BluRays (which I will regardless to complete my set) and set them on a shelf untill the next book comes out and I finish it.  Then I'll binge watch the whole season in a day or two.  If I go on the internet and happen to get spoiled, oh well, I wont cry about it.   I actaully had a big part of the ending of Dance of Dragons spoiled by somebody who had an advance copy, and it was a BIG spoiler.

Blu-ray Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Article) - 6/26/2014 7:38:48 AM

Oh, and I think all of his movies end up gettting picked up by the Criterion Colllection, so there is a good chance this will be too and it will be a superior release in terms of video/audio quality to the current release.

Wes Anderson is a taste I acquired with the first movie of his that I watched, Rushmore.  Although, I have yet to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, which I shall remedy sooner rather than later.

 I'm glad people are finally referring to Dany by name and not that stupid title, Kaleesi.

 I read an interview w/ Martin today where he said book Shae and show Shae have different personalities.   He said book Shae was basically playing Tyrion the whole time just for the money and status, where as he says show Shae did have feelings for Tryion but did what she had to do to survive.

SPOILER HERE in entire post.

So that scene where Jon and Melisandre view each other through the flames, reminded me of her thoughts as she looks into her flames, I ask to see Azor Ahai and see only Snow.   With the S being capitolized.  Plus I was hoping we would get a glimpse of Val or Dala in Mance’s tent. Hope they do not cut them from the story, as I like Val.

We got to see Bloodraven, aka the Three Eyed Crow, I expected him to look older and more grotesquely embedded in those roots. Heck the actor looked younger than Maester Aemon. I thought they might cut the Children of the Forest out of the show and was pretty surprised to see one. Alas, no Cold Hands though

END SPOILER

continued..

Figured Stannis would not show up at the Wall until next season, just due to the logistics of some of the things they changed. Stannis never had to go to Bravos to get money for more fighting men in the books, and while Bravos is not very far from Westeros, think the English Channel, he still had to go there, then recruit and then go to the Wall and a ways west to reach Castle Black. I didn't just didn't see it happening so soon and also figured we would be done with the wall for this season.

I for one don’t think Breane could have taken the Hound, even with his infected neck wound. He is just as big, bigger actually and stronger and no slouch with a sword himself. That was a show only scene. It was kind of cool to show them in the same scene considering some of the crazy theories out there that people have though.

trying to post for a while, taking ddiaz's advice and removing quotation marks and stuff.


I was pretty happy with the finale overall. I think it contained spoilers for me, or maybe it is better phrased that some things I was ambiguos about may have been confirmed. Namely regarding the Mountain and Jojen Reed. Didn't expect the final scene to be of Arya. I was expecting that to be Tyrion shooting his pops. They didn't add the part were Tywin's bowels release and Tyrion says something along the lines of, It appears Tywin Lannister does not in fact shit gold. I think they also wimped out and had Shae attack Tyrion to make his killing of her slightly more sympathetic. I know a lot of people who no longer are as big of fans of him because he straight up kills her in the books.


Gonna have to post in stages I think, it keeps failing on the big one.
