In a future when humankind is robbed of sight, what’s left of civilization rebuild their way of life without being able to see. However, as the twin children of Baba Voss (Jason Momoa) is discovered to be born with the gift, they become the target of those in power who fear that soeciety will be threatened by their unique advantage.
Sounds cheesy, right? Yup. Judging by the trailer, this film will be as cheesy as the synopsis promises. We’ve seen this formula a thousand times before but surprisingly, it works every single time.
After HBO ended its epic series Game of Thrones after the eighth season, fans of the show have been dealing with a void in their life that they never knew existed until they didn’t have the George RR Martin adaptation to love and hate (for the final season, at least). Networks and streaming platforms are now jostling to fill this demand with adaptations of literary sagas and game series that have a grown a strong following over the years. Will His Dark Materials and The Witcher fill the gap?
All in all, while the last half of Season 8 was shaky at best, Game of Thrones was able to come out with a passable ending. It wasn’t the epic conclusion that fans had their hearts set out on for a variety of reasons, but it at least made sense, and its an ending that fans can make peace with in the long run, just as Westeros did with their new ruler.
At the end of the day, no one can do a better job of ending the series that its author George RR Martin, even when there are better writers. Now, all that’s left is to actually wait for the books to see if they are any better, that is after GRRM makes time to write after consulting for the three GOT spin offs in the works. That’s where you get your do-over. Not HBO.
All in all, the entire episode was problematic from start to finish because it seemed forced, awkward, and for lack of a better word, stupid. It was a waste of good budget for CGI because everything that happened in this episode was not new. We’ve seen it all the before but once upon a time, it made sense. I don’t think anything they can pull in the finale can make up for the disaster that is “The Bells.” As a fan of this show, I mourn it for what it could have been.
Here’s the official ranking of the mothers of Westeros from worst to best. See if you agree. Enjoy!
All in all, “The Battle of Winterfell” delivered on a perfectly executed battle that will make you wonder if you would make it out of the episode in one piece. It was the longest battle ever shot and fans will feel each moment dragging on like torture (but in a good way). Word of warning though, watching it multiple times does not diminish the stress that this battle will cause on your heart. Its worth it though. Now I wonder how Cersei can top the Great War.
With all of our favorite characters saying goodbye ahead of an epic showdown, is there actually a possibility that they will live through it? The short answer is no. Not a chance. Nada. Zilch.
So here’s my fearless forecast on who lives through the Battle of Winterfell. Let’s see how it stacks up to the odds tomorrow.
Seriously, all the goodbyes in this episode makes me just want to hide under a rock until all this is over, yet at the same time makes me want to pull the days closer until its Game of Thrones Day again. At the same time, it also makes me want to cheer for these brave characters making a final stand despite insurmountable odds. Even without a major battle, this episode was one of the best that GoT has to offer. I stand by this.
