Game of Thrones – S5E6 – Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken – Recap...

If you’ve never read one of my recaps before, a few things. I’ve read some of the books, but only up to A Storm of Swords. I don’t want to read past the TV show. I ask that you please respect that, and while I welcome comments, I ask that you please don’t spoil anything that hasn’t happened on the show yet. Also, please forgive my use of nicknames. They started because I couldn’t keep track of all the characters names, and my favorites have stuck. SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES – SEASON 5, EPISODE 6 – UNBOWED, UNBENT, UNBROKEN FOLLOW. Proceed at your own risk. The episode opens on Arya cleaning a dead body in the House of Black and White. Some dudes take the body, and leave the door ajar behind them. Arya can’t help by try to look. That bitchy girl slams the door shut and tells  her to get to work. Arya wants to do more than clean dead bodies and tells the girl she’s ready to be tested again. The girl then gives Arya her back story. She’s the daughter of a Westeros lord as well. The story involves a wicked stepmother who attempted to kill her, and the girl’s own vengeance. Arya is really digging it, and you can see on her face that she’s thinking these two could be BFF. Oh wait, sorry Arya, she was just playing you. This girl is like the Heath Ledger Joker, when he would come up with a new story every time for how he got his smile. Later, Arya awakens to Jaqen asking her, “Who are you?” She answers, “Arya Stark.” He peppers her with more questions. Any time she lies, he can tell, and slaps her. Things get interesting...

Game of Thrones – S5E5 – Kill The Boy – Recap...

Hi everyone and welcome to my latest recap of Game of Thrones. These recaps do have spoilers for the episode and what has come so far on the TV show, so if you’re not caught up, and don’t want things ruined, please stop reading and come back when you’re good to go. Also, I’ve only read the first three books, which caught me up to the end of season four of the show. I have not read ahead of the show. While I definitely welcome comments, I merely ask that you not spoil things that have yet to happen on the show. I have a hard time with names, so I tend to give characters nicknames. Please forgive me for that. On that note, let’s get underway… Grey Worm is alive?!? Yes! I’m not going to lie, I thought he and Barry were dead at the end of the last episode. I am psyched that Grey Worm survived. Sadly, Ser Barry did not. While Grey Worm’s girlfriend tends to him, Dany is holding vigil over Ser Barry’s corpse. That dude who wanted the fighting pits reopened visits. Dany is ready to kill. She calls for the leaders of all of Mereen’s great families to be taken into custody. Fighting Pit Guy immediately realizes, “Hey, that’s me!” Once they’re all assembled, she leads them into a catacomb. Careful ye heads of Mereen’s great families, there be dragons here. Dany feeds one of the heads of the great families to her two dragons. She acts like Fighting Pit Guy is next, but when he responds bravely with “Valar Morghulis,” she changes her mind. She lets all the men live one more day. Why did she do this? Did she realize that her intimidation tactics weren’t working...

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Review (NO SPOILERS) May04

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Review (NO SPOILERS)...

I’m going to keep this review short and spoiler-free for those of you who haven’t had a chance to see Avengers: Age of Ultron yet. A longer, more detailed review will follow shortly. Are you asking yourself, “Should I see Avengers: Age of Ultron?” The answer is yes. I wouldn’t rank Avengers: Age of Ultron as the best Marvel Studios movie; that distinction belongs to either Captain America: The Winter Soldier or Guardians of the Galaxy depending on what day you ask me the question. But Avengers: Age of Ultron is good, perhaps as good or just shy of being as good as the first Avengers movie. The action in the movie is fast-paced and the fight scenes are superbly choreographed. Marvel is really killing it with their fight scenes lately between this movie and the Daredevil Netflix series. The movie is full of great character bits, and introduces us to new interpersonal relationships between the characters. Plus we learn some secrets about one Avenger that completely threw me. Ultron as a villain was excellent. Ultron is both menacing and creepy. While I liked Loki as the villain in Avengers, I felt like a lot of that movie was the team fighting endless hordes of facelss aliens. But here, we get a central villain that isn’t the pawn of another villain. Ultron is his own man, as he likes to point out repeatedly in the movie. If you’re a fan of the Avengers comic, I think you’ll be very happy with the way the characters are portrayed. Quicksilver is brash. Cap’s shield bounces off things and returns to him (with a better answer than Cap just being great at throwing it). Avengers: Age of Ultron is excellent. Overall, I would give it an 8...

Game of Thrones – S5E4 – Sons of the Harpy – Recap...

If you’ve never read one of my recaps before, a few things. I’ve read some of the books, but only up to A Storm of Swords. I don’t want to read past the TV show. I ask that you please respect that, and while I welcome comments, I just ask that you don’t spoil anything that hasn’t happened on the show yet. Also, please forgive my use of nicknames. They started because I couldn’t keep track of all the characters names, and my favorites have continued because I love calling some characters by them. As the episode starts, Friend Zone steals a boat and rows away with Tyrion tied up onboard. Somewhere else, a bigger boat is sailing. Jamie asks the captain what island they’re passing. He has a moment of quiet reverie when the captain tells him it’s Tarth, the sapphire island. For those not keeping up at home, Brienne is from Tarth. Brienne and Jamie had developed a begrudging friendship when she was escorting Jaime back to King’s Landing. Jaime and Bronn are prepping to sneak into Dorne. Bronn asks Jaime why Jaime has to the one to free Princess Myrcella. When Jamie says Myrcella is his niece, Bronn gets brazen by asking, “Niece?” Oh Bronn, you rule. Bronn then points out that even if Myrcella is Jamie’s “niece,” it still doesn’t explain why Jamie Lannister has to be the one who frees her. Jamie almost quotes N*Sync when he responds, “It‘s gonna has to be me.” Bronn tells Jamie to give Tyrion his regards if he ever sees him again. Jaime’s response to that is, “He murdered my father. If I ever see him, I’ll split him in two. Then I’ll give him your regards.” Damn Jamie, that was cold blooded! In King’s Landing, the...
