Game of Thrones S7: “Beyond the Wall”

Game of Thrones S7: “Beyond the Wall”

“Beyond the Wall” sees many of our protagonists (depending on how you feel about some of these guys) teaming up to go beyond the wall, into the wintery north lands in order to find a Wight. It also deals with fractured relationships between the Stark siblings, political discussions between a Queen and her Hand and an invitation from an old foe and how to best deal with it. Sweeping views of Iceland, the immense mountains, steep valleys and tiny streams that dot the landscape give you an ominous feel. You have the best fighters headed north of the Wall. Now, before we get stoked: a lot of these guys can’t stand each other. Past...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Hacksaw Ridge”

In a nutshell: HELL on earth. Imagine death is all around you: bodies blowing up, screaming all around, smoke, gas, darkness and decay. No matter how much gear you have on, no matter how much training you received in your army barracks, absolutely nothing prepares you for the sheer madness of warfare. Desmond Doss is a CO – a conscientious objector. He signed up for the army, but to help people as a medic. Ironic, because in the minds of his superior officers, warfare means protecting your rights and your freedoms at any cost, even if it means taking up arms and killing the enemy. Due to Desmond’s upbringing – a father (and former...

The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

The Leftovers Series Finale: “The Book of Nora”

I confess that Nora was my least favorite character throughout the entire Leftovers series. I don’t know why; I felt she was too stiff, too rigid and devoid of any emotion. Then again, I have not suffered the sudden departure of a husband or children – and I would not be able to comprehend her grief and anger. She went from being an angry, lonely widow and grieving mother, to a  tougher woman who seemed to find some stability (in her relationship with Kevin Garvey Jr and her job) but at the end, she just spiraled into a dark descent. The fact that she wanted to go through with being zapped, just to be with her family, either...

The Leftovers: “Certified”

The Leftovers:  “Certified”

Continuing to delve deeper into the human psyche, this week’s episode of The Leftovers display pain and trauma. The Sudden Departure did many things to many people: but most notably, we get an episode dedicated to Laurie Garvey and the pain she was forced to endure when the Departure took place. We get some insight into why she is the way she is. And it’s pretty sad. This episode sees Laurie, Matt, John, Michael, Nora, Garvey Sr. and Grace all gathering around a table to have a meal together. To the naked eye, it’s just a group of folks having a bite to eat, talking and spending time together. However, we know that this is no ordinary...

The Leftovers: “G’Day Melbourne”

The Leftovers: “G’Day Melbourne”

A tale of two “Kevins.” A trip to Australia leads to more confusion, heartache and bewilderment. A relationship on the skids. I don’t know about you, but watching Kevin and Nora’s relationship begin to unravel was unnerving (was it starting to unravel or did it just come undone with lightening speed?). We see the mysterious return of someone who was previously thought to be dead. Is Kevin completely losing his mind? What’s with the television in the hotel room? And the television flickering off while Kevin is staring at a woman who appears to be Evie – creepy or what?! No, we need to play that out. Here. The further we get into...
