    Documentaries

    So many good documentaries, so little time. I was afraid to watch Dear Zachary but when I finally did...well I am glad I read about it prior because knowing what I was getting into was helpful but still when it got to the point of finding out what that evil woman did to her own child and the pain she caused the grandparents - I was on a full out ten to fifteen minute sob fest. That one ripped me to shreds. Have to recommend from NF the Bobby Kennedy For President series, and The Fog of War. When we have such volatile political times I'm drawn to that subject matter. In the case of BKFP it all makes me think what might have been.

    Fighting with My Family (2019)

    Saw this a couple of days ago and really enjoyed it - thought the casting was great, Florence Pugh is a delight. Some, okay most, of the WWE related or wrestling star movies are barely watchable but this is definitely one of the best.

    Just for us...

    Well to quote Bran who is quoting Jamie back to him, and 10CC - the things we do for love.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    I was spoiled, so no surprises here even though I thought D&D would throw a couple our way but didn't. That's okay - it wasn't spectacular, but I'm....okay with it. I'm sad I have nothing to rave about, except for the conversation during the counsel meeting. That I actually enjoyed. And really Bran being King, it's just a title in a way, he's just there to guide the other parts of Westeros, like an honorary degree. Yeah, Lino...he's very attractive in that lanky way. I'm impressed. I think one of them had to be Lord Manderly, then the Prince Whoeverthehell from Dorne but there was one other as you say, sitting between Sam and Edmure. That was the first thing I thought of. Awful as it is Leni knew how to point that camera. Really, Arya got the best ending here. And perhaps Jon will be able to find some peace beyond the wall. I liked that they had that grass peeking up thru the snow, to me that was a glimpse of something to come...while there's some green beyond the wall maybe they are due for a thaw. I can't help but still feel after this that they still needed those couple more episodes to pad it out a bit.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    It's been a lot of fun here - even if I wasn't posting I was reading. I've enjoyed every minute of it, thank you all so much. I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    That Redgrave gene...she can do more in one look than most actresses can from a lifetime of work. I remember at the time I saw her as an older Sansa, so not a look back but years later. This I could have seen...but not Angela, lovely as she is. I dunno - I dig a bit of gossip but considering that people enjoy being employed and having a paycheck I think very little will be said, unless it's just confirming the party line of a bittersweet ending overall season. I really enjoyed The Long Night and A Night Of The Seven Kingdoms, even more so after rewatching them a second and third time. We'll be watching tonight, and probably rewatching right after. I'm kinda relieved it's done though.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Dang! I must not be reading the same articles as you but yeah, I can see that. He's appealing in a different way to me. Not gonna go there though...not in public anyway. I'm still in. I'm sure I'll find some other series to console myself with, rewatch the original Upstairs Downstairs, something. I can still appreciate the acting, the production including locations, set design, costuming, all the technical stuff especially CGI dragons, casting, everybody down to the drivers and catering. It was a massive massive undertaking even if we did get shorted on writing and season length, there's still so much to appreciate and love. Maybe we'll still get a surprise or two tonight. Maybe more like Bullwinkle saying "watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!" and then it will make no sense and we'll all be able to bitch and moan about that for a few days. Someone will maybe have to help me with this, I've been trying to find the article or post here about it - wasn't there some talk of an older Brit actress being cast to show up in the finale? I want to say this was spoken of a couple of years ago, so it wasn't in context of the wonderful all hail Dame Diana Rigg as Oleanna. Maybe I am confusing another show with this but I'm sure it was GoT. Oh well.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    The actors themselves confirmed this in a few interviews. That's what I really want - is a dvd of nothing but the deleted scenes or the multiple endings. Easter Egg that shit big time, then we can all pick our individual ending we like and be at least semi happy.

    On a lighter note...

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Yeah, that's what I'm trying to wrap my brain on - if Jon gives Dany a valarian steel kiss then what is Gray Worm going to do, just stand there and glower? Oh hell no. And while I'm at it anybody else speak Dothraki left in KL? Have many of the Dothraki picked up the common tongue since their time in Westeros? Just curious... Which means possibly somebody else does the deed instead of Jon despite what the leaks or spoilers or educated and uneducated guesses pointed to. Jon may be joining the wildings because he's had enough of the killing and political bullshit to last a few lifetimes and his choices in women are not always the best as they've ended up dead and very very pissed off. I keep thinking Arya creeping about is going to come into play here as a catalyst to Jon or helping any damage to Dany happen. Been thinking about the various characters today, and it does make a woman sad not to see a man again. Very very sad.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Yeah, that's true too. I rewatched this afternoon and Arya does look not only roughened up physically but mentally. She'll give Jon an earful if she can get to him.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    Jon might be down for that if he could skip and jump and press wild flowers. Sorry, couldn't resist. Back to the speculation...if the spoilers seem to be pretty much true about Jon and his coup de gras with the emotionally injured Dany (and pissed off, don't forget she's pissed) I think what will really set off that sword arm is her making another 'Your sister doesn't liiiiiiiikeeeee me' comment. He's seen the fear side of her, and it's scaring him.

    S08.E05: The Bells

    Exactly. Just for a moment I thought she'd heard the bells...and then took off to maybe torch the Red Keep only or just show off Drogon to the masses to frighten them into submission. Nope, war is all hell and it certainly looks like seven hells now. Hat's off to the production crew - it was very Pompeii/volcanic ash looking. Reminded me a bit of Dresden after the WW2 bombing or parts of Italy. They did an excellent job.

    I teared up for Sandor and his holding her, it was the biggest kindness he's been able to bestow. To the end I was hoping he'd just shove Living Dead brother off by himself, but taking himself out too...heartbreaking. That's someone you knew was probably going to not have a great ending, but you still had that teeny tiny hope that he'd be at the end of it all having a goat farm with some wilding girl. But alas... I don't see Dany as mad in the insane sense, more like I'm really really highly pissed off, and I'm going to take out all my built up anger on random people and buildings. Poor Varys...didn't like your end but it was no surprise. Dany has no fucks to give anymore. Which is why Tyrion is a marked man now. Cripes, that was a lot of crispy crittered small folk. Won't be too many to clear out the rubble.
