Three Undeniable Nods to “Game of Thrones” in the Season Finale of “Westworld”

Three Undeniable Nods to “Game of Thrones” in the Season Finale of “Westworld”

With the sound of spurs and gunshots echoing in our memories, the time for reflection is now upon us. Westworld was one of the biggest first series in HBO history, with a bountiful audience who actively dedicated their time to finding meaning in the jumbled and confusing timelines. Since the show finished there have been a plethora of theories circling about what could be in store in the following seasons. In the feature-length original film of the same name for which the series was obviously based on, there are multiple worlds including a Medieval World. In an interview with Jonathon Nolan, he said that George RR Martin had floated the idea...

Movie Review: “Midnight Special”

Movie Review: “Midnight Special”

Midnight Special is the most recent offering from Jeff Nichols who brought us such delights as Mud and Take Shelter. Starring Michael Shannon, Kirsten Dunst and Adam Driver, this film examines the intricacies of the media, faith and widespread panic in a wholly cinematic and beautiful way with an epic twist of science fiction which would get the Carl Sagan seal of approval. This ambitious drama doesn’t seek to answer all the questions it asks and it is left frustratingly open ended. However, that ambiguity and mysterious nature is an overarching theme throughout. No one really knows what’s going on, us included, and that only adds to...

Five Observations from the GIRLS Season Six Teaser

As we all know, the final season of Girls is coming to HBO early next year, but to whet your appetites until then, a teaser trailer has been released. In only 41 seconds I have about 6000 questions, but for the purposes of keeping this brief, let’s just focus on 5 key moments in this teaser that indicate season 6 to be the best yet. Marnie & Desi My first question, is why does Marnie look like a 1950’s femme fatale in her head scarf, glasses and sports car? My second question is, why is Desi driving? My third question is, where the heck is Ray? So at the end of last season, Marnie and Ray decide to officially give things a go which...

Westworld Season Finale: “The Bicameral Mind”

Westworld Season Finale: “The Bicameral Mind”

The Westworld season finale managed to wrap up a plethora of loose ends while simultaneously opening manty other doors to what may follow. A number of fan theories were confirmed – namely that William is The Man in Black and Bernard is Arnold or Arnold is Bernard…I get confused and that the maze isn’t really a maze after all. What was brilliant about the finale was that these loose ends were tied up straight away and the rest of the episode focussed on more pressing matters – things that are going to be important for seasons to come. One of the biggest fears surrounding artificial intelligence is its own self-realization that it is...

Westworld: “Trace Decay”

Westworld: “Trace Decay”

After last week’s bombshell, this week’s episode opens on Bernard coming to terms with his horrendous crime. It would seem that Ford’s control over him is a lot stronger and a lot more complex than first considered. Ford can change Bernard’s emotion and direction at the flick of a switch. When Ford brings Bernard back online, his first reaction is that of grief and guilt. He expresses new emotions, emotions associated with murdering somebody. None of the Hosts have ever killed a human being before so Bernard is feeling them for the first time. Ford, sensing his emotions are spiraling out of control, turns off the bad...
