Ajax Rules Posted May 19, 2015 Share Posted May 19, 2015 I read an article. I don't know if you were referring to that, but it was defenitely not a good article. It was full of utter bulshit. The scene HAD plot relevance. It showed that Ramsey is a dangerous man! Didn't we already know that? Yes, we did. But this time we saw his violence in a sexual way, which was new. More importantly, there is no one way to say HOW MUCH violence, HOW OFTEN, HOW BRUTAL is necessary to get the point accross. That is a matter of aesthetics, an artistic choice. It is obviously very hypocritical. Things happens in the show that nobody complains about, much worse things. And they happen often. Nobody cares. But when Sansa is 'raped' (let's assume she actually was raped), it is a bad thing? Why shouldn't D&D be allowed to have her raped? Even when it is just for shock value? 80% of the show is not about plot advancement, but to trigger some emotion (laughter, shock, a warm glow, etc.) 99% of the movies is about crimes, murders, etc. And if you only leave in the parts that actually advance the plot (without making some things graphic), you could shorten films and series by 80%.
