  1. It must have been REALLY bad to walk out of a movie you're paying theater $$ to see, unless you personally have a super low tolerance for bad movies.
  2. All oaks.
  3. Based on the HBO execs statements, a LOT of main and secondary characters will die, with many dying in the final episode. Based on Emilia's statement of feeling dazed and needing to take a walk when she got the script, if I assume she was being honest and not acting or purposefully misdirecting, that reaction suggests that Dany dies at the end, maybe even both Dany and Jon die at the end, although that is pretty far from bittersweet, LOL. However, Jon killing Dany and his unborn child is just silly and is not going to happen.
  4. What makes her a good choice? Her big budget film was not well received and one of the things most often criticized was the poor special effects, something that any DC movie is going to be very reliant upon. I'd say they dodged a huge bullet when she passed on Black Panther or it too could have been a mess.
  5. Ned being Jon's father has no narrative purpose. He already sees, believes and loves Ned as a father, so Ned + anyone won't change anything for him. Finding out Ned Stark was not his father, now we've got something going dramatically and for character development. Jon as the son of Ned and Ashara, who cares? What does that bring to the story? Nothing. Yeah, sure, Jon Snow is the secret magical prince that was promised is the tropiest trope out there...but that's what the story is going to be. Fire and Ice. Which heritage will your honor, Stark or Targaryen or both or neither.
  6. I don't believe that will happen, either in the books or the show.
  7. As a Patriots fan, let me say: I'm not feeling better about any of this.
  8. well, the only part i skip on rereading is lady dying, so ill go with that
  9. The red herrings are: Ashara, Wylla, and the woman from the Sisters....all people that the characters think might be Jon's mother. Everything else is pure crackpot. IMO
  10. It was veeerrrrry Hollywood. But, I'm okay with that. No one had ever heard of William Wallace until Braveheart. The worst thing about that movie was Gibson's atrocious hair extensions? wig? whatever that was.
  11. Scots won the battle of bannockburn, Edward I was kind of an asshole, Edward II was probably gay.
  12. Robert wasn't mad, not even close. Depressed, self medicating with booze and whores, yes. Irresponsible, yes. Resentful of the expectations of being king, yes. Bored, yes. Wasted his potential, yes. Mired in self pity as the most powerful man in Westeros, yes. Did all of these failings set the stage for his murder and the subsequent war, yes. He's actually among the most tragic characters in the series. A handsome, good, brave, charismatic man is destroyed by getting what he sought, precious.
  13. Another possible reason for the declining audience is that the nature of celebrity has really changed the last decade. Celebrities are more accessible than ever, they tweet, they selfie, they a TV show of celebs behaving formally is actually less engaging than what is available on everyone's phone all the time. It used to be a rare thing, and having all the celebs there at one event was a big deal. Social media combined with eleventy billion awards show makes it not very special anymore.
  14. They "should" follow Jamie by all common sense, but since show is obsessed with Lena they will probably follow Cersei.
  15. There is no way to know what might have happened if the Starks were warned, they may have avoided catastrophe, Robb and Cat may have been saved, or everyone would have still died. But Roslin didn't warn anyone or even try, she played her part as assigned and for that she is culpable.
