And while I consider myself quite competent when it comes to comic book mythology (thanks to those Marvel playing cards that I used to pore over when I was in high school), the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be quite overwhelming to newcomers. But of you really, really want to be able to understand the final installment in MCU’s third phase — that’s Avengers: Endgame in plain talk, the Russo Brothers recently shared that you need to watch at least these four movies, just to be on the same page. … Read More Your ultimate shortcut to relate to Avengers: Endgame
“Winterfell,” rightly named because of the setting for the Great War with the Night King Army ticked all the boxes and provided fans the proper update they needed to catch up with the characters during their long hiatus. The reunions were also a fitting throwback to the first season where all the conflict started, only now with an enemy that accepted neither negotiation nor compromise.… Read More Game of Thrones: ‘Winterfell’ Review
All in all, The Perfect Date was not a groundbreaking addition to the rom com genre but it managed to deliver on a light and entertaining movie that inspired the happy feels. It knows its place in the general scheme of things and was content to serve its purpose. It had relateable characters, imperfect ones and ones that are still finding their way. At the end of the day, aren’t we all just looking for purpose like Brooks was?… Read More #Netflix The Perfect Date: Movie Review
In terms of build up, this episode had everything going for it. A dangerous mission, heroic men willing to sacrifice their life to protect humakind, a brilliant tapestry of white to signify that Winter has indeed come. It even came complete with witty banter among the party. While it served up a climax filled with a lot of fighting, close calls and requisite deaths, it also unraveled when the supposed heroes of the piece were also the ones to cause the most damage.

It is a statement meant to provoke Cersei into facing off with Dany and shortening the time she needs to get the Throne, but what Dany must not yet understand is that her posturings are evenly matched with Cersei’s cunning.

All in all, Battle of the Bastards was a beautiful episode, cinematically, storywise, scoring, the works. It was a magnificent episode overall. It was a total underdog victory, and while it was achieved by keeping secrets, it was a victory all the same. You can say a lot about Jon Snow but one thing he was, was trustworthy. It wasn’t right to keep him in the dark about Sansa’s plans but on the other hand, he might not have accepted support from the traitorous Lord Baelish in the first place. It was a satisfying victory because Ramsay finally got what he deserved. Karma’s a bitch. RIP, Rickon. It was nice seeing you one last time.
