Chernobyl: Miniseries Review

All in all, I could safely say that Chernobyl is one of HBO’s best miniseries despite the lack of any A-listers on its roster. It was gripping. It was engaging. It was dramatic and shocking in all the right places. It took viewers to a journey through history into the most devastating nuclear disaster that threatened to wipe out an entire nation and more. It was a humbling to witness it and leaves one to contemplate one’s mortality in the face of today’s world challenges. I am awed.

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: ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ Review

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. … Read More Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ Review

Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘Winterfell’ Review

“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 Final Season: ‘Winterfell’ Review

Game of Thrones Epic Battles (Part 7): Battle of the Bastards

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.

Game of Thrones Epic Battles (Part 5): Hardhome

All in all, Hardhome makes fans wonder whether Jon Snow was indeed the Prince that was Promised in the books because he ticked off all the qualities of a person who will sit justly on the Iron Throne, and perhaps put an end to the Long Night. Hardhome was an exciting and hard fought battle and one that would always remain my favorite because it was masterfully executed and built up characters to root for as the series progresses. … Read More Game of Thrones Epic Battles (Part 5): Hardhome
