Game of Thrones S6 Ep 5 Review: “The Door”

Sam
0
Full analysis and spoilers to follow. Hodor?  Hodor!  Hodor… Game of Thrones was in an unusually revelatory mood in “The Door,” giving us both origin stories for the White Walkers and Hodor.  First, the White Walkers. Bran spent much of this episode gallivanting (thanks for the vocab lesson, Theon) through the past and present.  He […]

‘Master of Kung Fu’ back in print after 30 years

“Call me Shang-Chi, as my father did when he raised me and molded my mind and my body in the vacuum of his Honan, China retreat. I learned many things from my father: That my name means ‘The Rising and Advancing of a Spirit’, that my body could be forged into a living weapon through […]

Stand by for the unexpected, with Tickled

Tickled is a seemingly cute and funny documentary that turns dark fast. Coming from the UK, I cut my teeth on documentaries about weird and wacky people. If there’s one thing we Brits love, it’s going off to visit German nudists or American evengelicals and make ourselves feel better by making fun other of people. […]

Full analysis and spoilers to follow.

Sansa Jon Snow is dead inside.  And, well, outside as well to some extent.  The cost […]

Game of Thrones Season 6 Ep 3 Review: “Oathbreaker”

Sam

Author’s Note: Spoilers Ahoy! “Oathbreaker” was great in that it introduced many new and interesting dynamics to explore amongst our favorite/least favorite Game of Thrones veterans.  The show has focused a lot on its roots recently, with large amounts of time spent reminding us that the Stark kids once had dire wolf pups, parents, and […]

‘Civil War’: There Are No Teams

It’s unfortunate that ‘Captain America: Civil War’ arrives just a month after the other big comic book “Vs” movie of the season. As it is, there are going to be (no doubt) plenty of ‘hot takes’ comparing DC’s ‘Batman V. Superman’ against Marvel’s ‘Iron Man Vs. Captain America’ – which one is better, or more […]

Game of Thrones s6e2 Review: “Home”

Sam
0
Author’s Note: First off: this review is Spoilerific, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Game of Thrones is now off-book.  As a reader of the series, this season represents the first real set of “surprises” beyond consolidations and cuts from the massive cannon. Episode 1, “The Red Woman,” set the tone of the […]
