Last Christmas: Trailer Review

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. … Read More Last Christmas: Trailer Review

The next Game of Thrones? Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ vs HBO’s ‘His Dark Materials’

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? … Read More The next Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Iron Throne’ Review

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. … Read More Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Iron Throne’ Review

Game of Thrones Final Season: Should there be a do-over?

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.… Read More Game of Thrones Final Season: Should there be a do-over?

Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Bells’ Review

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. … Read More Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Bells’ Review

Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Long Night’ review

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. … Read More Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Long Night’ review
