Iain Glen is in a new Australian production called "Cleverman". It's a miniseries, it looks interesting. Only saw the trailer last night on the ABC.

Didn't anyone watch the hilariously cheesy Gods of Egypt? NCW is the lead (Horus). It has great effects, a shit plot, mediocre acting and loads of mangled Egyptian mythology (I absolutely love all kinds of mythology, no matter how OTT). Great pastime if you're hungover.

Watched Me Before you 

Loved Emilia Clarke ..she is lou and every time she smiled it did lit up the screen and emotional scenes made you cry .very different from the role of dany 

Sam claffin did a good job too and his chemistry is good with emilia ..

Charles dance and Neville long bottom was also in the movie and it was good to seem them along side Emilia 

The films is on its way to become a successful hit

Very well deserved success and long term due for emilia and glad emilia did good and happy for her success

I just watched '71, a film about a British soldier's experience in Belfast during the troubles. It had Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) in.

I saw it while randomly searching through Amazon Prime's film lists and decided to watch it because a friend's father served in Belfast in the 70s and recently passed away. I know it was an experience that haunted him for the rest of his life.

Good film. Powerfully directed and acted. Maybe could have done with being about 15 minutes or so longer to get in some exposition and character development but it built the tension up very well and conveyed the complexity and madness of the situation in a balanced way. The climactic shootout and aftermath also manages to elicit complex reactions in the viewer and feels like it will stay with me for a while.

I just felt like something was missing though. A very good film that feels like it could have been an extremely good film. Still, I would absolutely recommend it.

Yeah I agree with this, it was a decent movie, which had potential to be a brilliant movie, but was a little empty in some ways, falling too much into a number of 'solider behind lines' journey tropes. Might be great if you don't know much about the NI conflict but otherwise seems a bit.. lacking.

I was extremely surprised by it ending. I didn't think 90 minutes had passed.

For greatness, it probably needed to delve deeper into the heart of the conflict and not gone all-out for what essentially amounts to a very well done exercise in suspense sequences.

Yeah it felt like an adventure movie that just happened to be set in Northern Ireland. It did have some really good moments, I especially liked the first half hour, because its not often you imagine what its like to be a soldier in that situation, where everyone hates you. There are some great movies out there about the conflict which probably go into more detail. But I think this was a decent introduction for those not that informed.

I always enjoy seeing alumni of the James Bond series in Game of Thrones.

Sean Bean (Ned Stark) - GoldenEye

Diana Rigg (Queen of Thorns) - On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) - For Your Eyes Only

Julian Glover (Master Pycelle) - For Your Eyes Only

Tobias Menzies (Edmure Tully) - Casino Royale

Patrick Malahide (Balon Greyjoy) - The World Is Not Enough

Johnathan Pryce (High Sparrow) - Tomorrow Never Dies

Oona Chaplin (Talisa Maegyr) - Quantum of Solace

Plus Max von Sydow (Three Eye Raven) appeared in the unofficial Bond movie Never Say Never Again.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. There could be more.

Ian McElhinney (Barristan Selmy) and Michelle Fairley play a wealthy married couple in Netfilx's Rebellion, about the Easter uprising in Dublin. It was really well done.

Faye Marsay (the Waif) is in a quirky-looking BBC series called 'Love, Nina', in the title role, a complete contrast to her GoT character.  I only caught ten minutes of it but it looked as if she is a Northern (English) nanny to a London family in the literary world. 

She also played Anne Neville in a BBC series a few years ago called The White Queen, set in the Wars of the Roses period.  She made a very convincing evolution from a playful and spirited young girl to the reluctant wife and widow of Edward of Lancaster, and then Richard III's mildly malevolent and finally bereaved and dying queen.

Jonathan Pryce who plays the High Septon is frickin hilarious in GI Joe Retaliation.  The missile launch scene is damn good.  To bad the rest of the movie is crap.

Watch Terminator Genysis, Clarke might as well change her name to Whoopie Goldberg.  She was terrible.  She does do a good job with Danaerys though.

It was just an awful movie. Matt Smith even sucked. It was a really bad script. I'm not sure any actor could have done anything with it.

It was pretty bad.  You could tell they were really reaching for plot.
