Game of Thrones: The Mountain and The Viper Review

game-of-thrones-prince-oberyn-martell-season-four-headerNormally, I try to wedge in a little bit of an intro for these posts before I put in the jump from the home page to the full post. Today, I don’t feel up to doing it. If you watched this episode, you’ll understand why. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it and come back.

Entertainment Link-Off: A Twist In My Story

Charlize-TheronIt’s Seth Macfarlane vs. Angelina Jolie at the box office this weekend. While both films are currently panned by critics, at least Jolie has the advantage in the fact that everyone seems to love her performance as Malificent. Anyway, Macfarlane’s flick, A Million Ways to Die in the West is loaded with star power and he got Charlize Theron to be his leading lady. So let’s start off the ELO with her.

After the jump, watch Harry Potter get friendzoned, the Jurassic World rumours are true, Seth Rogen channels his inner Pixar, apparently it is legal to wander around NYC topless, and Hollywood is teaching guys how to get the girl the wrong way. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Blast from the Past

fan bingbingSummer blockbusters are in full force. Just a week after the release of Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past has made its way to the big screen to rave reviews. Despite some continuity issues, it is one of the best entries in the franchise. You can also catch Fan Bingbing as Blink in the film.

After the jump, some more X-Men related news, Edgar Wright is no longer working on his passion project, listen to Morgan Freeman on helium, Will Ferrell jams with RCHP, Jimmy Fallon does a nip-sync with Terry Crews and listen to the newest track from Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album. Continue reading

Game of Thrones: Mockingbird Review

game-of-thrones-littlefinger-headerWelcome to Game of Thrones: A show with so much plot that even the narrative-heavy, transitional episodes have all sorts of important things to talk about. Even if Tyrion didn’t move one step closer to life or death, even if nothing new happened at Castle Black, even if Arya is still only wandering through the wilderness with Sandor Clegane, enough is happening that would make you think that this little setup episode is still one of the best of the season.

Entertainment Link-Off: Going Nuclear

elizabeth olsenAfter a lengthy wait, it’s finally here! Godzilla is back on the big screen and yes it is way better than that 1998 travesty. Though I have to warn viewers, if you’re only in it for big fight/action sequences, you might be disappointed. Anyway, the cast for the movie is pretty solid and you can catch Elizabeth Olsen in part of that ensemble. 

After the jump, news on other monster flicks, a look into the 2014 fall TV season, the decline of movie-going experiences, don’t blink or you’ll miss The Flash and catch the fan made trailer for Akira. Continue reading

Game of Thrones: The Laws of God and Men Review

game-of-thrones-tyrion-lannister-season-four-headerThe moment we’ve been waiting for since the Purple Wedding. Okay, given how trials tend to go for Tyrion and this show’s propensity for killing off lead characters, I don’t know if anyone was looking forward to how this turns out but I’d imagine we were looking forward to how it played out on-screen.

How it played out was absolutely amazingly with some Emmy-worthy performances… And with a shirtless Ramsay Snow taking care of business in the Dreadfort.

Entertainment Link-Off: Love Thy Neighbour

halston sageThis weekend marks the release of Neighbours starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron. As I mentioned before, I got a chance to catch it last week and it is hilarious! As of right now, it looks like the raunchy comedy is going to dethrone Spider-Man from the top stop at the box office. Sure there are plenty of laughs in the movie, but there is also some good eye candy courtesy of Halston Sage.

After the jump, Hugh Jackman might do X-Men: Apocalypse and the next Wolverine movie back-to-back, there are 7 authors that took longer to write their books compared to George R.R. Martin, Community got canned by NBC, Power Rangers might be making a comeback, breaking down why people watch The Big Bang Theory and listen to Kina Grannis’ Elements in its entirety!

Game of Thrones: The First of His Name Review

game-of-thrones-iron-throne-headerI like when writers throw out a little surprise. For the most part, this episode was light on anything noteworthy. However, it had one massive tidbit of information that should have thrown everyone for a loop. I didn’t think that the episode would feature an almost throwaway line in the middle of the episode that would change everything that we thought we knew since episode one of the show. But if you’re going to change what we all thought for 35 episodes, this was the way to do it.

A Visual History Of Spider-Man’s Costume (Infographic)

Since Jackie has been hyping the latest Spider-Man movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I think that it’s only appropriate to do a Spidey-themed post today. While the Rotten Tomatoes score is the lowest of the recent Spider-Man films, Jackie said that it does the multiple villain story far better than Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 did. That’s better than I expected from the film after seeing the trailer attached to Captain America 2.

Anyway, to mark the opening of the latest Spidey movie, here’s a look back at the history of Spider-Man’s costumes, both in the comics and movies, in infographic form.

felicity jones spiderman 2 premiereFor those of you in North America, you finally get a chance to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2!!! Sure, all the attention is on leading lady Emma Stone, but don’t forget British actress Felicity Jones has a small part as Felicia Hardy. Expect her to have a slightly bigger role in the next film. 

After the jump, some more Spidey news, Godzilla is apparently too fat, Almost Human got canned by FOX, a look into the new cast of Star Wars, meet Peter Parkour, and watch how The Lego Movie should have ended. Continue reading
