Re: Game of Thrones

Kinda sad that Jack Gleeson is retiring from acting at the age of 21. He did such an incredible job convincingly playing a prick.

Do you think he will stay in retirement? Also, could you picture him playing anything but a villain? It would be interesting to see what he can do.

I can't see him staying in retirement, but I think it's a very smart move to at least take a hiatus for now. Everyone everywhere will associate that face with King Joffrey for all time, but if he takes some time out to do whatever it is he wants to do, I'm thinking somewhere down the line he'll find a script or a role that's substantial and challenging enough to reignite his interest in acting.

Re: Game of Thrones

Man, the internet is abuzz with discussions over Jamie & Cersei's sex scene. I think taken in context to the relationship they both shared, and how things have changed so much the scene makes sense. Why the outrage over this is beyond me. The show has already depicted rape, torture... Heck, what brutality haven't they featured?

Re: Game of Thrones

BTW, this is a great article about that scene and the pointless cry babies on the internet.

Re: Game of Thrones

I generally can't handle any type of rape scene in film or television. I haven't read that article, but my beef with that scene is that writing it just felt a bit superfluous. It messed with the pace of things, I don't know that it was really necessary to drive plot or character development.

I understand that Jamie is emasculated after losing a hand and now his lover. He couldn't handle her rejection and he'd had enough. It just felt awkward and clunky, the way he took advantage of her weakest moment. It happened and then it was never visited again throughout the episode. It was just like, "Well, that happened."

And that scene with Littlefinger and Sansa...was it me or did it feel like he was overacting a bit? The whole ep felt a bit flat for me in the end.

Re: Game of Thrones

I can't offer an opinion as I don't watch the show or read the books, I just hear about it from Lee and general pop culture. But, apparently George Martin is saying they changed the meaning/what he intended to be happening it was never meant to be rape.

Re: Game of Thrones

It was different. One thing the show messed up on is that in the books you kind of get that both of them had a habit of forcing sex upon the other at moments when it wasn't really consensual but one of them wanted it.

Also, many angry people think it was out of character for Jamie. The guy that pushed a kid from a window. Who strangled his own cousin. Who has murdered many. So out of character...

I'm using HBO Now. It's working like a charm so far.

Definitely seems like some big stuff is coming down the pipeline after episodes 1 and 2.

Very much looking forward to seeing how Sansa's arc unfolds this season. It's her turn to throw down.

Awesome. We are really thinking about dropping cable and going full stream with Netflix, Amazon and HBO NOW.

Re: Game of Thrones

I agree. I'm not even all that upset by most the changes they have made from the books. Guy I work with cries to me every Monday morning about how different things are. Like, does he not know this is an adaptation???

Spoiler:
Also all the internet uproar over that final scene. It was an arranged marraige in which couples consummate on the night of the wedding, and it was Ramsey. I actually thought they handled it very well. I was dreading that they would do it as it was written in the book, which was way worse.

I did feel sick after seeing that, which for me means that it was well executed television.

Re: Game of Thrones

Yeah book readers need to chill the fuck out. When the books are done maybe someone can do a faithful yet probably unwatchable adaptation. Until then enjoy them separately or choose one. Can't have it both ways.
