How Young is Too Young for Game of Thrones?

How Young is Too Young for Game of Thrones?

When you become a parent there are a million things to worry about. Many nights are spent lying awake debating whether or not it would be too dangerous to allow your six year old to play football or if your teenage daughter has a secret boyfriend she hasn’t told you about. One of the things parents tend to worry about the most is at what point is it time to start introducing the “difficult” topics (violence, sex, abuse, and drugs). While some parents wait until their child has reached puberty to begin discussing sex, others talk about it from the first moment a child asks a question. These difficult topics and the desperation to...

Fire, Fury and Fantasy: Season 3 “Kissed By Fire”

Fire, Fury and Fantasy: Season 3 “Kissed By Fire”

I just don’t know where to begin, because, in truth it was ALL SO GOOD! We hear the words of a prayer and in the seconds that follow, a spectacular duel to the death takes place between Sandor Clegane and Beric Dondarrion. The sword of fire must have unnerved the Hound, even just a bit, because we all know how terrified he is of fire. The rest of the Brotherhood watch as Beric and Sandor trade jabs and brutal thrusts, each trying to best their opponent. While it looked as though Beric was actually going to knock down the Hound, something awful happens: the Hound brutally stabs Beric, killing him instantly. Or so we think. Arya, her hatred...

Just Who is Will McAvoy?

Just Who is Will McAvoy?

Politics is a dangerous game to play whether it’s a polite argument between friends, a shouting match between two strangers after one overhears the other’s conversation,  or when news anchors spew vitriol at each other on national television. Everyone loves to watch it, some people like to learn about, but everyone hates it when what could be a simple disagreement over second amendment rights has suddenly torpedoed an otherwise happy and enjoyable relationship. Will McAvoy has immersed his life in politics, but he doesn’t want to just play the game anymore. He’s tired of playing. He’s transcending the game....

VICE: Episode 04 Love & Rockets – Review

VICE: Episode 04 Love & Rockets – Review

 Overview: “Love & Rockets” is the title of episode 4. The first segment is the “Love” part of the equation with CHINESE COCKBLOCK. In this piece viewers will understand the implications of China’s One Child Rule. VICE.com puts it this way: What happens when 50 million men can’t get laid? China’s “one child” policy, coupled with a longstanding cultural predilection for male babies, has created a market where marrying-age men outnumber women by the millions. The fabric of this social engineering has thrown old-fashioned courtship out the window and created a lucrative business catered to matchmaking. VICE...

True Blood SPOILERS: Rumors of Major Death in Season 6

True Blood SPOILERS: Rumors of Major Death in Season 6

Rumors have been circulating that a major character, many are speculating that character will be Eric Northman, will die at the end of True Blood’s sixth season. The past two seasons have involved rumors  that the show wouldn’t be renewed for a next season, and have also included rumors Eric Northman would not survive.

However, the lead characters are all bound by a seven year contract with True Blood, including our beloved Alexander...

This Just In: Guillermo del Toro brings Manga to HBO!

This Just In: Guillermo del Toro brings Manga to HBO!

The master of dark fantasy with the likes of Pan’s Labyrinth and of odd action like Hellboy and Pacific Rim brings his flavor to HBO. Guillermo del Toro and HBO are developing a potential series called MONSTER. But it is not just any story it is a new genre for HBO to explore since MONSTER‘s source material is Japanese Manga. Japanese Manga, for the unfamiliar, is a very stylized comic book that offers a unique vision that has been imitated around the world, though Japan still is the reigning Manga master. From this genre comes Naoki Urasawa’s MONSTER series that was told over the course of eighteen volumes. Del Toro will co-write a...

HBO Documentary Film: AN APOLOGY TO ELEPHANTS

Overview: Elephants, both the Asiatic and the African for centuries, have been adored, have inspired great works of art, and even have been revered as gods, yet they have also been treated with cruelty.
