  1. I think it would be great if Michigan students made a banner looking exactly like Lousvilles, and crossed out their name and wrote in Michigan. Also, how much do you Pitino haters love that tattoo he got!?!?!? NCAA 2013 champ!!! Not anymore fella.
  2. Man that is pretty dead on. Add in that Kilmonger was there, just at the end, when BP battled Klaw/Thunderlips, as was Clubber, who was in the crowd observing. Even stranger when you realize Micheal B Jordan played Killmonger, and Apollo's son in Creed. Saw BP the other day and liked most of it, thought the first challenge scene at the waterfall was just silly as hell. Thought it was pretty good and will see any sequel that follows.
  3. My wife is addicted to watching this. It's become a running joke in our houselhold. At anytime of day you will could one of us randomly yell out HARD!!!! REALLY REALLY HARD!!!!! from anywhere in the house. Glad it's winter because if the windows were open and someone was walking by they would think we were freaks!
  4. I guess it is Starz, I am watching on Netflix and couldn't remember. The blood and sex doesn't bother me as much as I haven't latched on to a character yet, none seem likeable to me, and the plot kind of sucks. I will give it a full season to see if I like it, thanks for responding.
  5. Watched Way of the Gun recently, I thought someone on here mentioned it recently, that opening scene was great, because it was totally unexpected. Rest of the movie was blah. Watched Spotlight also and really enjoyed it, just so much wrong with the world. Quesiton in spoilers Also saw a few episodes from Spartacus, Cinemax version. I am only like 5 episodes in of a 4 season show, does it get better?
  6. Saw this yesterday and thought it was a good movie, better acting and characters than anything else. Been a fan of Micheal B since The Wire, plus my daughter loved him on Friday Night Lights. I had seen the previews a lot and wasn't wowed by them, then starting hearing the rave reviews and thought maybe I missed something. But, kinda like Wonder Woman, it was a good movie, actually better than WW, but not great, IMO. Couple things I was not happy about: The second challenge - why? There was a set time for challenges and it passed, why bother with another one? Yeah I get it, you feel bad that his dad was killed by your dad and then left him behind, but this is a total outsider you don't know and you allow him to break tradition and challenge? Unless I missed something where royal blood can challenge at anytime? The first waterfall scene was just total garbage for me. Did we really need to see dancing people up the walls of a waterfall every ten feet? It just looked silly and childish. It made the armour plated rhino's seem realistic. All that said, I will looking forward to seeing part 2 when it comes out.
  7. If you couldn't even finish S4 then why are you posting in a show only topic after S7 has aired? Personally I couldn't tolerate Fish Mahoney/Malone or whatever her name was on Gotham, said if she didn't die I'd quit the show, spoiler alert, she came back and I left. I don't go into Gotham show thread and bash it, because I have moved on. There are definitely parts of the show that have been bad, anything to do with Dorne, the Jaime - Tyrion beatle conversation, mostly anything in KL after Tywin was killed, etc. But for me, and just my opinion, the good and great far out weigh the bad. And again, just my opinion, Dorne wasn't all that good in the books either. Seemed like a lot of filler. Maybe thats why I dislike it in the show so much. Thank you for this! Saved me the trouble of replying! I mean people forget that the original wight in the show didn't just drop dead instantly, it took a little time to die when Jon burned it.
  8. Danys' man at the end after she buries Jon who fought bravely, fought valiantly, and died.
  9. First off they are not mindless zombies who eat people, wrong show. There is a thought process, communication, and strategy from the Knights King. He wants to kill all mankind, that is his goal. Now, what would happen if they won? I'd think he and his army would go back to "sleep" of course since all the noisy neighbors are gone.
  10. Watched Erased on Netflix. Ugh, don't bother. I had a little time to kill and it looked decent, it's from 2012. Ex CIA agent in Europe, daughter just came to live with him, he works for a large conglomerate now...and cue the action. Best thing I can say about the movie is at least it wasn't two hours long.
  11. Beat me to it! I agree it was the best but the bar was set low, very very low. I did like Man of Steel though
  12. Looking forward to S2. Not a rewatch person so I'll just read up in here to refresh myself on last years events.
  13. Yeah, but that was basically the entirety of it, she saw him, I don't remember if they talked and even if they did Sansa would still be in survival mode and not being honest. But again, not much time left for that stuff.
  14. Arya is called horse face as a kid in the first book. By the last book she is in she is being called attractive. She grows into her looks. As to Emilia....smoking hot! Better with her natural hair IMO And as to the topic, yeah it pretty much has to be Dany, there really is no one else left and no time to introduce a new character. Someone upthread mentioned her dying giving birth to a daughter...it would awesome if the daughter was a dwarf! Even as a side joke filmed as an extra scene, she gives birth and Tyrion comes out looking like a girl.
  15. So then why show this character in the books? Seems an odd choice to add the grave digger and have it be the Hound if you aren't doing something with him later. I have no interest in the fight since it likely means nothing in the grand scheme.
  16. As a swordsman he is likely the equal to Ned. Competent in battle, not for show. Jon has seen as many battles as any man who is alive at this point so he has tons of experience and doesn't just fight like a knight, he fights ugly as well. Not much. Just united the North again. Has all of the North preparing for battle, including women and children. Used diplomacy to get the dragon glass needed to kill the others and wights. Led an expedition that found out killing a wight also kills the walkers he controls. United with the ruler who has the largest and most powerful army in the known world. Yep, not much.
  17. It's ironic and fitting to see people complaining this much about an extra year wait for the conclusion to the show since, you know, the books have dragged on for decades to the point a lot of people fear he will never even finish them!
  18. All they have to do is show Sansa training some with Arya in S8 since the fake drama between them is over.
  19. Right, which is why in a Season 8 thread it doesn't track to say Arya will suddenly want to be married and a Lady. Now in an Arya reread thread this would make perfect sense.
  20. Yep, 100%. I mean, people read the books and yet have very different views on the events and people in them, so of course a show based on them will be about the writers view of the material and how to present it, not mine or anyone on here or any of the other sites. In this way it is very much like painting. Put a group of painters in a room with one vase of flowers and you will not get two paintings that are the same because everyones view of it are a little different, and yet none are wrong. Some will paint it like it is, picture perfect. Some will focus on a particular flower or color, some will express it differently all together, cubism, or expressionist. It's art just the same.
  21. First off if you don't think book readers went into this with high expectations and had visions in their heads of what Jon should act and look like, and how Jaime should act then you are not being realistic. In the book forums you can see volumes of discussions about Sansa, from the same source material, and get 50 different views on how she should be or act in the next book.That is what I am referring to when I say people had this built up in their heads of what they want to see. In order for there to be a debate as you put it, then someone has to be on each side. Otherwise it's just people spouting off in agreement correct? So as a fan of the show, in a show thread, you would think I could come here and express a view, same as you. As to your comment that all I care about are numbers, I showed one single number as evidence to support my comments that the show hasn't "gone wrong" or jumped the shark so to speak. The fact that viewership is still climbing supports an arguement that the show is on the right path, for what it is. It isn't the books, never was supposed to be and never will be. They are simply source material for an adaptation.
  22. The show didn't go wrong. People and their expectations of how the show should be, how the writing should be, how their favorite character should be, is what went wrong. The show is what it is going to be. 90% of the people here have unrealistic expectations and want everything to fall in line with what they want to see, not what the show is going to be, if that makes sense. People have had decades to read and reread and disect and analyze this material to the point that everyone is an expert and everyone knows how each character should act, who they should like etc etc. Yes there are stupid parts, I mean pretty much anything Dorne related was bad. When you talk to most show only fans they like where it has gone and can't wait to see S8. It's people like us who read the books, read the theories, made up our own theories, we are whats wrong. The last episode had ratings 36% higher than S6 finale, which I believe was the previous record. So again, the show isn't whats wrong.
  23. There are a lot of potential meetings coming aside from this one. So Jaime getting to Winterfell. Have nothing more to offer about Brans reaction since it seems pretty obvious that Bran will be non emotional about it. Sansa and Arya never really saw Jaime except at Winterfell in S1. All they know is what was reported about him. The key to this meeting is does Jaime tell them the truth, that Cersei is going to betray them? He kind of has to since he will be alone.
  24. Did I miss something? Daario is sworn to Dany and is ruling Mereen in her absence isn't he? Man I am really thinking that the last scene he was in she did this to him, said he couldn't come to Westeros with her. Then her and Tyrion talked while she remarked how easy it was for her to leave him like that, then she names Tyrion Hand?
  25. 1. You do understand there are 6 episodes left right? GRRM has published 5 books and in none of them has Arya expressed her feninimity or ANY desire to have a romantic companion, but you think it would be intelligent to totally change a character after 7 seasons of build up? 2. In the books she is training to be a BADASS GRILLLLL..(even younger than tv Arya BTW) I assume you think GRRM is doing that to placate the legions of fans who read in their homes too right? It's amazing how many people are so great at writing, so much better than the people actually writing and directing one of the more successful tv/cable franchises ever. It's 4am, I am tired and I guess i have zero tolerance tonight for this.
