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 – 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

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

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

Verdict – 3/5

Pros –

1) The Villain & it’s mythology
2) Kickass Opening sequence
3) Justice done with all characters with ample amount of screen-time (which includes Wolverine’s short & effective cameo)
4) Boss fight
5) Just like the previous film, Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver stole the show
6) Best superhero movie of the 2016 so far : better than both “Civil War” & “Dawn Of Justice”.

 

 

Cons –

1) “The Erik Lehnsherr Conundrum” : the story-line is revolving on the same plot from past 3 movies.
2) Honestly, Oscar Isaac can’t be identified in the movie.Why not make a 100 % CGI character ? Why studios are wasting money on actors when the make-up & CGI will overshadow every possible expression of the actor.

QUOTE –
Tyrion Lannister: I’m guilty of being a dwarf. Oh, yes I am. I’ve been on trial for that my entire life. I did not kill Joffery, but I wish that I had! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores! I wish I was the monster you think I am! I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you! I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it! I will not give my life for Joffery’s murder and I know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat!

1. Petyr Baelish: Knowledge is power.

2. Jaime Lannister: So many vows. They make you swear and swear. Defend the King, obey the King, obey your father, protect the innocent, defend the weak. But what if your father despises the King? What if the King massacres the innocent? It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or another.

1) Tywin Lannister : All of us dead, all of us rotting in the ground. It’s the family name that lives on. It’s all that lives on. Not your honor, not your personal glory, family.

2) Jeor Mormont: When dead men and worse come hunting for us in the night, you think it matters who sits on the Iron Throne?
