Just stumbled on this and the Movie chat. Oh man. I thought I couldn't love this site anymore!!

In my opinion, I was dissapointed in Game of Thrones before episode 5. I had built it up so much in my head and episode 4 was a massive drop off in quality. However, Episode was Game Of Thrones back to its very best!

**SPOILERS**

For 8 seasons it has been built up. I didn't think it would go down that route but now it makes sense, and I love it! Dany is the Mad Queen!! I thought the cinematography was insane and the actions was non stop. My jaw was on the floor the whole time.

Big welll done to the cast. So well acted. So excited to see what is in store for the finale.

Glad someone else enjoyed it, I’m sick of seeing people moaning about it. 500,000 signing a petition because it’s not what they wanted? They should go and watch peppa pig!

Completely accept people may not like the final series as it is going at a rapid rate but to ask for it to be re-written, is just a joke imo.

Sorry cm94 just ranted on the back of your post!

The battle between the mountain and the hound plus Qyburns death was my personal highlight of the episode.

I agree thus petition nonsense is incredibly stupid, the same thing happened with the last Jedi if I remember correctly, which I very much liked parts and was indifferent about other similar it this season of thrones but these seriously I thought petitions were supposed to be for worthwhile causes and to shine a light on actual issues.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 16:12:45
Exactly Wyred! For the most part this season has been great and episode 5 was the pinnacle. Brilliant.

I also agree with you on the rapid rate of this season. They definitely could have made the Battle with the White Walkers 2 episodes at least. The Battle of Winterfell was epic but at the same time the threat of the Night King and co. was wiped out in 1 hour and a half! There was so much material there that D+D missed out on. But episode 5 was redemption. Stunning.

The petition is stupid as you say DS. The show is not even finished and people are judging it massively.

I believe the season finale is going to be epic. Can not wait.

SPOILER WARNING, although if you haven't watched it yet, get a wiggle on!



I think I am in the minority who enjoyed the recent episode,
Varys got caught being Varys and earned a memorable death (there is definitely more to this too, Varys was being quick because he had to be. I think Tryrion got a warning from Bran in epsiode 2 about how crazy dany was and passed this info on)
Dany went full mad queen which has been teased for a few series
Jon no longer knows what to do

Genuinely wasn't sure if Arya would survive at one point
Cersei's death was good although I get why people are annoyed with it.
Qyburn's death was brilliant.
Euron got what was coming to him
And we got the fight between the hound and the mountain.
GOT is like no other series, some characters arcs get completed while others die before their time.

Would I have done a few things differently, definitely. I would of had Cersei getting killed rather then being led down a dark alley. And probably had a bit more politics thrown into the series with a few additional episodes.
But this was never going to please everyone, when these things have such huge fandoms the fans tend to create better story lines then the writers.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 May 2019 21:40:53
Yeah as much as I feel the last couple of seasons have felt very fast and rushed, and this season the most victim to that and certain big moments haven't felt right to me or gone how I think they should go from an organic and logical story point I would go as far to say I hate this season but feel indifferent at times

As for the final season 'ruining it' I don't agree with that as it doesn't take away the great viewing experience I've had along the way. As Tony stark said "part of the journey is the end" and I would add that no matter when the end comes we will always have that journey

It's like saying just because you don't win the title at the end of the season there was no point

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 21:08:17
They have definitely rushed the final series, and could of easily made it to ten episodes, but I think the last episode will tie up a lot.

GOT has been brilliant and is definitely something that will be high up in tv history.

I’d also say it’s felt quick compared to the first seasons as they could be slow and build up characters etc, now we know the end is near (at least for this story) it will feel like it’s motoring to the end.

I just hope we see a few missing characters in the final episode like yara and I hope bran is the way he is for a reason and doesn’t just plateau. If he does he will surely go down as one of the more disappointing characters.

I think it fair to start talking about the Game of Thrones episode, if you haven't seen it yet I suggest you stop reading.

THEY ALL DIE!!! (This didn't happen but count this as your warning if you are still reading and wanting to avoid spoilers!!).

So I re-watched this episode last night, with the brightness turned up! And it cast the episode in a whole new light. Overall the episode was enjoyable and I think it looked brilliant however there were some disappointments to say the least.
Starting with the dothraki, I personally have no issue with them being dealt with so easily. It showed the task the living had on their hands and also showed that this wasn’t going to come down to who fights the best. This was purely a numbers game now and the dead were ahead on that front.
The fire moat around winterfell annoyed me, I get that Dany couldn’t see the signal but Jon was just sat there. He had a massive fire starter and just thought nothing of it. However the dead sacrificing themselves to build a bridge was great.
Bran, what was he doing??? Literally in the biggest battle and just disappears into some crows. I couldn’t care about his character but he must be important to the overall story.
The deaths or lack of! Yes the ones that died were great characters but the night king was built as a huge threat yet conveniently the biggest characters all survived? It was like they didn’t dare pull the trigger. I am guessing it is more to do with the final three episodes, but why make a big deal of Jon’s parentage? They should have shown that tension on the battle field, i.e. Dany toying with the idea of leaving him for dead because he is now a threat. Sam should be dead, he is a terrible fighter yet made it out alive. It was all set for Brienne to die but refused to pull the trigger.
But my biggest disappointment wasn’t the tactics, this wasn’t a standard battle where you could outwit your opponent like a game of chess. It was the dragons, Jon and dany spent the episode re-enacting Aladdin! The wights biggest weakness is fire, so let’s just sit back with two dragons and fly around in circles waiting for the night king!
I hope the next three episodes show that the decisions made sense, and they don’t cop out with major character deaths. Would be interested to hear peoples thoughts on the episode and their theories for the final three episodes. One of mine is that Bran is the lord of light and he goes back to engineer certain circumstances for the story. I.e. ensuring that melisandre goes to winterfell.

{Ed001's Note - did you not think the bit in the crypt was the stupidest bit of writing ever? I mean everyone knows they were fighting the dead, so why would you hide with the dead?}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 May 2019 16:15:58
I think from the characters point of view they may have been unsure of the nights kings abilities and not sure where else they could have gone. but again one of them (big characters) in the crypt should of died, they had no fighters and no where to go!

Although that was a missed opportunity, could of had sansa having to kill a stark wight to save tyrion.

{Ed001's Note - surely characters like Jon Snow, having seen what happens, would know better? It just seemed like lazy writing to me, like the whole series.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 May 2019 21:17:19
Given that the wight they caught last season couldn't even get out a wooden box perhaps they thought the stone tombs would be a bit too strong for them, but seriously it was very dumb

The episode was certainly epic with some great cinematography and the way the piano score came in and the sound was dulled while they built up to the night king walking to bran and the eventual demise of theon was brillant

However firstly battle tactics, its not a standard battle but really? Charge you cavalry of 20,000 into the dark against what you know is an army of 100,000s of thousands. Put your catapults in front of the trench, only have one trench, wait to light of it up. Seemed illogical to me.

Character deaths: a lot of characters I liked but yeah none of the biggies, I think arya should of died in the process of killing the night king, if it had to be her that took him out. I would of had him pull his sword out about to kill bran then arya jumps at him showing the dagger so he turns and skewers her with the sword, but behind her back she was hiding the spear she had made so as he turned to and stabbed her she had snuck the spear under his armour with the other hand.

I always thought that even though it was heavily foreshadowed arya would kill him it always felt like more of jons fight and his character arc, at the very least it woold of been good to see him take the night king one on one.

I suppose cersei is now the final 'villain' but I agree there is still a twist to come to see who will get the iron throne, ifeel like dany could take a dark turn before the end

At the start of the season my fan fiction idea was that the night king would be revealed as o me of our current characters like Jon somehow, then he would roll over everyone and the last shot would be kings landing in darkness and ice dragons over head then the night king on the iron throne,, hazed mist covering the floor the camera walks up to the throne pans up, low angle shot and the night king looks into the camera

However from a more realistic take I woudl of had jon take out the night king as he has always been about ghe fight against the dead , arya take out cersei as she got ned killed and is top of her kill list and Jamie take out dany as she loses the plot and comes full circle from king slayer of her father to queen slayer, stomping the second targeryan era

Battleofwinterfell!!!

What an epic episode. Made up for the previous 2 seasons. Seriously that was something special.

Seeing all the characters at winterfell battle it out together was truly something i couldn’t handle.

Would be interesting to see how they top this with over a half of season still left to go.

CANT WIT TO GET HOME AND WATCH IT. CHEERS FOR THE NO SPOILERS.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Apr 2019 17:52:55
It's all personal preference and feeling but there are many episodes I have preferred or even narrow that down to battles. Battle of the bastards and watchers on the wall are a couple I can think of. However is it still awesome to see those characters fighting together at winterfell i still finished the episode with a sense of dissatisfaction and overall underwhelmed

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 10:33:47
They built that battle up too much! Aesthetically it was brilliant, well the bits i could actually see because some were too dark! But I just found it disappointing, I thought there would be a bigger price. Won't say too much for spoilers but if you haven't seen it yet A) watch it and B) get off the internet!

{Ed001's Note - I really must be missing something, there were a couple of good scenes but the rest was just a jumble of terrible writing. So many glaringly bad plot holes, some so blatantly obvious from the start that it was pointless watching, even the bits you could see. It started off promisingly but then fell apart very quickly and descended into the frankly laughable by the end. I realise it is difficult to say any more without spoilers so I will resist the temptation to point out the holes for now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 11:08:28
I agree, probably why it felt a bit off/unsatisfactoryin the end. Although I'm sure if you're a big fan of certain characters you will love the episode regardless and what it suggests about the rest of the season

The Sopranos

I know I've gone on about this before, but I just got done watching the whole series again and ffs it's so damn good.

The character arcs, the storylines, the acting, the fact that some storylines never get finished leaving it to your imagination(Pine Barrens episode springs to mind), all amazing. But for me the best thing about the show, is that it's dressed up as a Mafioso type show, but it's so much more than that.

RIP James Gandolfini and Frank Vincent.

{Ed025's Note - great show that hsf..

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 23:56:15
It is Ed, it's a shame I could never convince Ed001 that it's a good show =[
The Wire too. Makes me sad for modern TV shows, they just don't even come close.

{Ed025's Note - gandolfini was excellent hsf but i think my favourite character was pauly, it was the most believable of all the mafioso series for me mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 09:23:23
Pressed send too early lol. I think my favourite character was Corrado "Junior" Soprano. He had the best lines in the show in all honesty, and I think his acting especially in the later episodes, where he's been diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer's is just out of this world.
I think I'd have to throw Johnny Sacremoni in there as an honourable mention, he did a really good job(they all did really. ).

{Ed025's Note - it was a great series mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 09:15:45
Yes, Paulie Gaultieri was awesome, funny and terrifying at the same time lol.

The scene with the football coach, where he's trying to give him the 50 inch TV.
"Let me tell you something, Guido..."
"My name is Clarence"

Hilarious!

28 Feb 2019 17:47:25
Id put the wire at no 1 and the sopranos at 2. The ending cost it points. But great tv show, some fantastic characters, great scenes, great lines, amazing cast. Paulie was great but even characters like Silvio an ralphie all were scene stealers.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2019 13:31:48
I thought the same for a long time too Mort, that the ending could have been better. But that last scene in the diner, you see everything from Tony's perspective.

Door opens and bell rings.
You see Tony look up.
You then see who comes through the door.
This happens several times, then after the guy in the members only jacket has gone into the toilets, you hear the bell ring, Tony looks up - cut to black(Tony shot dead).
There is also a line from Bobby in an episode when they are sitting on the little fishing boat, where he says "you probably don't even know it happens, right?" Or something similar, there is also the scene when Silvio is at a dinner with someone from New York who gets whacked - the sound cuts out and Silvio has no idea what's happening until the 2nd gunshot is fired and blood is splattered on his face.

Oh Mort, you may also be pleased to know that they're doing a prequel to The Sopranos, it's called The Many Saints of Newark and it's about New Jersey in the late 60s. James Gandolfini's son is going to be in it, as a young Tony, which is pretty cool!

Hi seeking advice.

Bit of a technophobe here. I have an older hdtv (Not smart tv) and am fed up with extortionate prices I paid sky and now Virgin.
I keep seeing stuff around android boxes, firesticks and streaming services and accessing all PL football.
If I get an Android box, is that all I need to plug in and access tv and sports channels or do I need to download apps or do something else?
Is there an idiots guide to this sort of thing? Oh and can you record streamed tv? Is this possible via an Android box or will I have to purchase something to record tv?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

{Ed007's Note - If it's just football you want to watch there's websites for that and you can access them from any device with internet connection.
For ease of use I'd recommend you get a Firestick over an android box and yes you need to install apps but it's very easy to do and there's plenty of sites (and guys on the Celtic site) that'll help you out with that and get you sorted. You can also go down the road of paid IPTV (Internet Protocol television) which is a paid subscription (usually about £10 a month) to access an app that will have ALL your SKY & Virgin channels incl. movies & sports, PPVs etc etc
Sadly you can't record anything using a Firestick or an android box but you can buy a Freeview box that'll let you record for about £50-70 (you get cheaper and dearer but that's about the price we paid for my mum's and it works great).
Any further questions give me a shout Bobby 👍

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Feb 2019 16:08:26
That's great Ed, appreciate. So, in short, to get all tv channels I need a firestick and then subscribe to an iptv service?
Thanks

{Ed007's Note - yeah that would probably be the best bet.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2019 22:54:03
Is the iptv legal or are there risks. Just seems like a crazy deal

{Ed007's Note - It's not exactly legal but I've never heard of anyone getting into trouble apart from guys that run football streaming sites.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2019 22:11:35
Yeah they don't actually care about the people who watch the streams, it's the seeders they go after. Much like with the old Torrent programs.

A guy I used to be friends with got arrested for being a seeder while using uTorrent. He didn't actively look to seed, it's just he used to download while asleep and leave it running, so he'd be downloading for about 3 hours and seeding for much longer. Plus he was stupid and didn't cap his upload speed.

The way to look at it is like drug dealers, the authorities really don't give a damn about the users, only the suppliers.

The TV show I would recommend from what I have seen so far is Future Man. So far, 4 or 5 episodes in, it has been really good. Funny but not for kids. It is definitely not for kids!

Travelers:

I really enjoyed this so far and I've still got 1 more season to go.
In a nutshell, it's basically people from the very far future transferring their conciousness into people who were about to die in the 21st century, in order to prevent a series of disasters in their own timeline.
They operate in secret, but have to continue living the lives of the people they took hold of. It can get quite messy in places, but it works.

The acting is decent, the story is well written and it's not been over cooked with CGI.
I very much recommend this show.

Anyone seen the SyFy show Helix?

It's a show about a Laboratory in the Arctic,which conducts research into pretty much anything that's deadly.
They have a "minor" issue where 3 scientists get infected with some kind of disease and the CDC(Centre for Disease Control) are called in.

I haven't watched all of it yet, I'm only on the 5th episode of the first season, but one thing I will say, is so far this could quite easily have been a 28 Days Later prequel show. There are a lot of similarities with the infected and how they act.

That being said, it's not bad. The acting and script could be better, the concept of "zombies/infected" is running a little thin, but it's nice to see it happen from the very beginning for once, rather than half way through.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Dec 2018 18:38:47
Well this show became a complete cluster of randomness and chaos. Season 1 was good considering some of the acting was really bad(yeah I'm looking at you Hiroyuki Sanada aka the Japanese Keanu Reeves), it had it's good parts and some really cool twists, but Season 2 was bad imo.

They tried to do two stories at once, one being present day and one being 30 years into the future, and it just became a giant mess. Some of the plot twists in season 2 were completely wasted, because it was so badly executed.

They also did this really awkward and strange episode, where Hiroyuki Sanada went insane... It carried so many racial stereotypes on Japanese people, that it was totally cringe.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2018 07:43:20
Finished watching Cobra Kai - just 10 episodes so far on YouTube Red - and really enjoyed it. Like I said earlier, it might be purely the nostalgia thing, so probably not for everyone, but I liked the way they paid homage to the original film without just repeating everything from it.

They included bits and gave you moments which were direct bits from the original, such as wax on, wax off, but they also twisted bits, so you thought one thing was about to happen and instead it was used as a chance for humour. Unfortunately that humour only makes sense if you know the original film.

I really enjoyed this series though. Good to see they managed to get the original actors in as well, which really helped. Plus Johnny was excellent, and the way they gave his perspective on the original film really made you revisit how you remembered it. Oh and the ending. well I won't give it away but it made me want to see what happens next!

So there is a Star Wars TV show coming.
It's called "The Mandalorian".

It will star Pedro Pascal (Narcos) as an outlaw, who hails from the same warrior tribe as Jango and Boba Fett.

It's going to be Written by Jon Favreau

It's actually one that I think I might watch. I'm not a fan of Star Wars in a movie sense, I just see too many similarities in the movies with religion in general. But I do enjoy reading about the battles in the Star Wars universe, finding out the origins of the Mandalorians would be pretty cool, as it won't involve all the "hokey pokey religious stuff"(As Han says).

{Ed001's Note - I grew up with Star Wars, so love it. I was always very interested in the Samurai and martial arts in general, which Lucas based it on, rather than religion as such.}

02 Dec 2018 06:09:17
Yeah see I grew up in the prequel movies era and actually prefer them to the first trilogy. According to some "super fans" who went to see the movies all dressed up, that means I am not entitled to an opinion =[ lol.

{Ed001's Note - you prefer the prequels? It makes me fear for you as they are dreadful films.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2018 07:34:16
Would it help if I said that I didn't even like the prequels? That's how much I didn't enjoy the first trilogy lol.
Given that I disliked them both, the way I say I "prefer" them is based on the little things. For example Yoda seems like a wise ancient Jedi master, and clearly one of the most powerful among the Jedi in the prequels, but all I think of from the first trilogy is the child like goblin from the swamps and I literally can not get that out of my head. Lol.

If it helps, I really hated that Jar Jar Binks guy, but I did thoroughly enjoy the "Darth Jar Jar" theory, that was great!

Totally off point here but Ant Middleton climbing Everest is well worth a watch Ed, I would highly recommend. It really is a crazy thing to do and quite honestly risking your life.

Daredevil was excellent northernb - got better as it went along. Tell you what else is worth a watch if you are of the right age - Cobra Kai. Probably not for anyone who is not old enough to have grown up with the original Karate Kid, but those that have will get a huge dose of nostalgia. Odd to see the original stars reprise roles that played so long ago, but it is hard not to enjoy seeing them again

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, though it is Daniel-san, San is a Japanese add-on a bit like saying mate, though more polite. I can't think of a true English equivalent. It is good for nostalgia, not sure if it would be good to someone who had never seen the original movies though.}

Almost Ed, "San" is a sign of respect/friendship. There are others such as Kun, Chan and Sama.
Kun is spoken only to people who are younger than you.
Chan is spoken to your Kin.
Sama is used for people in a higher position of authority than you. Such as a mentor, a judge etc.

There is also one other which isn't a suffix but a prefix, this is "son", which originally came from the Chinese story of Sun Wukong The Monkey King, but was adapted into the Dragon Ball TV show.

From what I have seen so far, I would have to recommend Titans, not what I expected from DC Comics TV shows - it is more Dark Knight trilogy than the usual lightweight kiddy friendly Saturday afternoon fare of Arrow/ Flash etc. This is certainly not for kids! It is brutal in parts but very watchable.

I really like Arrow, I did like Flash but its gone off the boil in my opinion. I will check out Titans, what channel is it on mate ?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know what channel it is on mate. I watch it online.}

3 series to watch;
Good Behavior, McMafia and Killing Eve.

{Ed001's Note - I have seen that Killing Eve, odd but worth a watch. Not seen either of the others, what are they about?}

Good Behavior is about a lady, Letty ( thief, con artist and drug user who lost custody of her son while in prison) and a man, Javier (a contract killer). While she was stealing in an hotel, she overhead the guy planning a murder & tried to stop him. They eventually start an affair. She's trying to help him stop killing & he's trying to help her to stop using drugs and get her son back. They eventually realise how deeply flawed they are and try to make the best of situations.
The reason I like Good Behavior is that the "couple" remind me of the ones in Mario Puzo's "Omerta" (a mafia guy & an escort). I'm not exactly a romantic, but I like the idea of couples who are fundamentally flawed, but are still right for each other. I don't like where everything is perfect.

McMafia is about a Russian family living in London. The patriarch had to leave Russia years ago & lost most of his business. Apparently, to be part of the Oligarch/Russian Mafia, you'd to be strong & scheming. He was neither & someone else took his business. Years later, his son is dragged into the affair when his uncle was killed in his presence.

Hope I didn't ramble.

{Ed001's Note - Good Behaviour sounds very unappealing from your description. Too soap-opera like for my tastes by the sound of it.

Ah yes I have heard of McMafia, didn't appeal to me either when I read the description.

However, if you recommend both, next time I run out of things to watch I will give them a try. Something that doesn't sound that good can often turn out to be brilliant. I mean when Inbetweeners was described to me I thought it sounded cack.}

I won't try to overtly convince you. Lol. It isn't exactly soap-opera like but I'm the worst at describing movies or even books.
From descriptions I thought I was going to like "Only fools & horses" from the first episode & I'm in the 2nd season but still yet to get into it. Wasn't like that with Inbetweeners which I also thought I wouldn't like based on descriptions.

{Ed001's Note - Only Fools is probably very dated early on now.}

I have finished season three of Daredevil and i thought it was really good, I hope they do another one for sure. No spoilers but the ending does leave it ooen for a fourth season.

Well wortha a watch guys.

{Ed001's Note - I am partway through it and it has been excellent, as were the first two seasons.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2018 10:21:46
you finished it yet mate ? what do you think ?

{Ed001's Note - just two episodes left to go. It has been brilliant, building up along the way and getting better and better. It has surpassed the first 2 seasons, which made it the best superhero TV show imo. Season 3 has put it on a whole new level.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2018 16:42:50
Agreed, I am hoping Punisher season 2 will be as good if not better. so good mate !!

{Ed001's Note - I forgot to watch Punisher! I will have to check that out.}

So there is a horror show on Netflix which is making waves at the minute.

The Haunting of Hill House

It's essentially a remake of the events from the 1963 movie "The Haunting", but put into a TV Series.
Apparently it's so scary that people are developing acute insomnia and vomiting through fear and anxiety whilst watching it.

I don't personally like horror movies/shows due to my vivid imagination, but I'm interested to know if this is genuinely that scary, anyone seen it?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2018 14:23:10
have seen it and tbf isn't that scary! One scene probably made me job the most I ever have, but in fairness real good story and characters. Really enjoyed watching it and binged it in a weekend!

Just finished Punisher season one, really enjoyed it he is Badass for sure. Daredevil season three out in a few day its looking great. They have done a fantastic job if you ask me.

{Ed001's Note - I never knew they were making a 3rd Daredevil season, they had said it was done after 2 and there was nowhere else to take it. I am glad they have changed their mind because the first 2 seasons were excellent.}

Released on friday i believe mate, i'm on fifth episode of ironfust now, pretty good so far but no Daredevil or Punisher.

{Ed001's Note - Iron Fist was announced as cancelled yesterday mate. Just the 2 seasons. However I thought it was ok and am surprised they dumped it.

You are right on Daredevil, I checked the app I use to keep track of what I have seen and it says Friday.}
