On WHAT THE FUCK, GAME OF THRONES??? + links

Game of Thrones spoilers below!

This is my 100th post. It was supposed to be really special and cool, but instead, I watched The Mountain and the Viper and after ten hours, I still find it difficult to breathe. So instead of bathing in the glory of putting out close to 40 reviews in my blogging times, and that you can now just type in filmsandcoke.com in your address bar to get here, I’ll instead share a few thoughts on Thrones and the films I’ve seen this weekend.

    

  • Dany sent Jorah away because he betrayed her (wow, drama!). I didn’t understand it really, and I’m never watching that fucking episode again, so that’s that, but it felt sad. Especially with this in mind.
  • Arya and the Hound finally made it, only to find out Lysa’s dead. That was a hilarious scene.
  • The Wildlings attacked and Ygritte spared Gilly with her baby, which was super lovely.
  • And then the world gets fucked in the ass. Sorry. I don’t think it’s possible to say this too harshly. Everybody’s sharing gifs of Cersei’s joy, but before that, I was so happy to see her disappointment when Oberyn got the upper hand.
  • I still cannot believe that ending happened. I’m glad I just watched Atonement, because now I can compare that twist to something. Beyond cruel. I hope someone skins the Mountain. That shithead.
  • I bet Tyrion’s going to kill Tywin and get away. If not, someone’s getting punched in the face.

  • Before all that happened and I was left to pick up pieces of my brain, I actually had a really nice weekend visiting a friend.
  • Inspired by Nostra’s iconic movie character relay, I got my friend and her little sister to watch E.T. with me. I’d never seen it before, but I really wanted to, and it was so great!
  • On Sunday morning, I got up at 12pm and was still the first one up, so I started watching Howl’s Moving Castle — something I’ve wanted to see for ages, and they had it! It was really, really great and Calcifer, the powerful fire demon pictured above, won my heart at once.
  • I’ve been watching a lot of films lately, films I never thought I’d get to: Mads Mikkelsen in The Royal Affair (really good!), Chaplin’s The Gold Rush (I think I like silent films…) and I’ll see A Single Man tomorrow. Because this Monday hasn’t been depressing enough.

+ the ten works of a master of raw
+ this is a blind spot for me, too, I promise I’ll fix it
+ the only Godzilla review you need to read
+ nostalgia: “ghosts are transparent”
+ what is better than feet — animated feet?
+ spectacular
+ introducing: David Fincher is a genius
+ where #10 could easily be #1 in another show
+ hold your horses (and your breath)

20 things I love about Game of Thrones

The world’s worst blogger is back!

I’ve only seen the first two seasons and read half a book in the series, but since it’s the 20th and I’ve already (okay, since episode five season one) put Game of Thrones at #2 on my favourite TV series, I figured this post was in order anyway. Spoilers for seasons 1 and 2 following.

LATE NIGHT SPILL 14: exactly how great is Netflix?!?!

  • I didn’t announce it with as big of a bang as I should have, but here it is: I GOT NETFLIX!!
  • Should you be an American reading this and don’t get it, here’s the deal: my home country doesn’t have Netflix. All DVDs are crazy expensive. It’s a whole different world out there in the wilderness.
  • Life’s been much better film–wise, too. My first Netflix film was Winter’s Bone and it was pretty amazing. I love Jennifer Lawrence more with each of her films. My other favourite of this week was This Is The End, which was the funniest film I’ve seen in a while.
  • Yet the most exciting thing I’ve watched has been Game of Thrones. I’m on episode four and it’s even better than I was hoping. As a sidenote I can say it’s awesome having a brother who is nerdy enough to get really excited about GoT along with you.
  • Oh, and The Desolation of Smaug was also really cool, even though undercooked.
  • Tomorrow I will see Love Actually for the first time, in honour of lille juleaften – small Christmas night? I don’t know. Anyway, yes, it’s one of these films I curse myself for not having seen. But apparently seeing it on the 23rd of December is a tradition in Norway. I’m not complaining. 😉
  • Some of the following links are pretty old, but I’m more confused by  the passing time than Amy Pond, so just click, read, and enjoy. 😉
