Game of Thrones (Season 8)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 2/5

 

PROS –
1) Cleganebowl. Sandor Clegane will go down as the most remembered character of the series.
2) A moment of appreciation for Peter Dinklage playing Tyrion Lannister.
3) Beric Dondarrion dying to save Arya, Jorah Mormont dying to save Dany. Theon dying to save Bran.
4) Lyanna Mormont‘s giant-killing act.

 

CONS –
1) A rushed final season. A series which could’ve been the greatest series of all time choked during the final season.
2) “The Long Night”. The grand battle ruined thanks to bad cinematography, which included a lame death scene of the grand-villain.
3) All the fan theories, all the wild guesses about the Azor Ahai, etc. were whimpered down by this unfulfilling season full of bad writing.

Verdict – 2/5

Pros –
1) Intriguing dystopian plot. A near future where crime is legal for a day.
2) Decent background score

 

Cons –
1) The direction is awful. No proper character development. Neither horror nor slasher.
2) The right story was not picked to start the series. The national insanity was reduced to a house-break-in.

Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Olenna’s badass confession.
2) Bronn almost killing Drogon.
3) Bran & Arya’s return to Winterfell.
4) Suicide mission beyond the wall led by Jon Snow. Beric & Thoros fighting wights with flaming swords was truly amazing.
5) Uncle Benjen’s 2nd rescue beyond the wall. Under-rated character deserves a big spin-off.

 

Cons –

 

1) Way too fast as compared to past 6 seasons.
2) Too many online theories corrupted the show for us.We are ourselves to blame.
3) Unnecessary obligatory sex-scenes

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –
1) Mega-City One
2) Lena Headey as Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal –  the scar-faced patron of Peach Trees tower block.
3) One day operation story & no time waste on character introduction.
4) This movie can be said as the Godchild of “Escape From NY“. Got an uncanny John Carpenter touch.
5) The Vulcan cannons battle on the 76th floor.

 

Cons –
n/a

Judge Dredd: America is an irradiated wasteland. Within it lies a city. Outside the boundary walls, a desert. A cursed earth. Inside the walls, a cursed city, stretching from Boston to Washington D.C. An unbroken concrete landscape. 800 million people living in the ruin of the old world and the mega structures of the new one. Mega blocks. Mega highways. Mega-City One. Convulsing. Choking. Breaking under its own weight. Citizens in fear of the street. The gun. The gang. Only one thing fighting for order in the chaos: the men and women of the Hall of Justice. Juries. Executioners. Judges.
