Die Hart (mini-series)

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

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 

 

PROS –
1) An action-packed comedic mockumentary where Kevin Hart is playing a fictional version of himself who’s done playing the comedic sidekick of the leading action stars and decides to become the leading man. For that, he is sent to get trained in an “action star school”.
2) All 10 episodes are less than 10-minutes long which is very refreshing and very revolutionary approach from Quibi.
3) A good ensemble of actors. Watching John Travolta in a fun role was the best thing.

 

 

CONS –
1) The viewers can smell the final plot twist from a mile.
2) It could’ve been released as a 90 minutes movie instead.

Kevin: Yes. He’d just won an Oscar.
Claude Van De Velde: Neither do I

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.
