  1. The board games she pulled out for them to play are also old games. The age gap isn't outrageous, but frankly I'm sick of seeing it onscreen. This has been a longstanding thing in the entertainment industry, pairing up older actors with much younger women, and I'm looking at it from that angle. I'm not even sure how old Bucky is supposed to be at this point. But the actor playing him actually looks at least around 40yo. It's pretty funny that everyone is whining about having 'representation' of themselves onscreen, but they still have trouble presenting women closer to 40yo as worth any
  2. Thats also true. Because writers write these scenes as flashbacks, and not dreams. When they do write them as dreams, there is usually something surreal in them, to let us know. In this case, it could have been him taking his time and making the man squirm, to accentuate and exaggerate the guilt he feels. Except... him bursting through a wall sized painting. That totally could have not happened, and it was just some surreal bit of his dream. But I don't buy that. I think it was too cool to be a dream, and written as what actually happened. And if thats real, then I'm taking him making an inn
  3. I forgot it was a dream sequence, because it had a lead in where the guy walks in and tells his coworkers he can't meet up with them... presumably this is something that WS did not witness, in reality, but dreamed. He could have french kissed him; anything goes in a dream. I guess I was taken aback at how nasty it was to make the guy squirm, but he was probably just processing him, because he had befriended his father and was feeling all the guilt.
  4. I hope every time he remembers this, that he thinks it was just a hallucination. I must have missed her saying ' you sound like my dad,' but you just reminded me how annoying this character really was. No; it's not 'old fashioned' to bring flowers. She was just rude, and that was insulting, not cute. Bratty, sassy, sarcastic, whatever you're calling it, in the words of Rocket, "it's not cool (you little gargoyle)." She goes from negging him, into emo talk about dead kids. I don't blame him for walking out.
  5. Sam's story was boring. It makes it hard to believe that he has no money when he's risking his life, as seen in the first 5mins, ...and he doesnt get compensated highly for it? Strains credulity. He's only one of a very few people on Earth who can be called a 'superhero,' so that is a laugh. So basically he's just torturing his sister, and insisting she waste her life on the family struggle business. They could have come up with a better story. Maybe if they didn't tailor it to Anthony Mackie's home state? And while I understood the sister's plight, her attitude and arguments were a
  6. I answered this already, so I dont know why it was removed: Yes; having a white person live out a white conqueror scenario is racist. If I didnt make it absolutely clear before, I am making it so , now. The problems with race didn't start in the finale of the series.
  7. They certainly can feel the process of some human logic. Dogs, anyway. Eg, They can feel jealousy. If you spend all your time on your cell and ignoring your dog while your dog makes sad eyes at you or puts it's paw over the phone to stop you from typing, and your dog steals your phone from you or hides it, it just used human logic to keep you away from the thing that is occupying your time and making it jealous.
  8. To be fair, he looked like he could be anyone wearing a rubber white mask.
  9. Jaime pretending to not know Dickon's name is the reason I loved Jaime.
  10. Dany coming on to Jon again was the only thing that indicated she was crazy.
  11. I paid so little attention to the whole Max Von Sydow as a tree thing, that Im not sure if this really happened, or I just filled int the blanks of my mind, but I thought Max the tree said to Bran that he is dying out and now Bran will be the tree, and that he or maybe Meera said, 'I dont want (you) to be a tree.' That whole thing was confusing and a bummer.
  12. He is not "special needs." He's a damn tree.
  13. As a high ranking leader in her army, they went into a city and committed genocide. It doesn't matter what he wanted or what he thought, he backed the wrong person and gave er a platform to commit genocide. He is complicit. When you wantonly slaughter that many innocent civilians, your head will roll. Lucky for him, the people left in power after that wholesale slaughter are his family members. Yes; the brown people weren't happy hanging around racist Westros, because it was written to be racist. In the end, these people that we are supposed to be sympathetic to over everyone else, lik
  14. I don't know if this was mentioned before, but in the New Yorker article interview with Emilia, she said she was told to study Peter O'Toole from the scene in Lawrence of Arabia,where his blood lust took over, for the one shot where she's deciding if she should hold back or unleash hell on KL. You can literally see her impersonating Peter O'Toole performance, from that moment in the film. I believe I read GRRM mention LoA with regards to Dany, years ago. However, in LoA, Lawrence comes upon a deserting Turkish army that has slaughtered a small village, on their way. It is him seeing the
  15. The people of Westros just watched their own Westrosi NORTHERN ARMY go on a killing/rape spree. Jon didn't pull a "brown" person off a woman who was about to be murdered/raped. He pulled one of his OWN men off. Jon was directly responsible for all the murder and mayhem, because he enthusiastically backed and enabled Dany. In any other world, he'd be hanged for a war criminal. As I said, when the outcome of your story is to write that 'all the "brown" people get on a boat and fuck off to an island,' then your story is racist.
