12 Apr

Tonight’s the night! 3. The Rains of Castamere Season 3, Episode 9 Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Directed by David Nutter The Red Wedding. It’s the most masterful sequence in Game of Thrones history, and its most horrifying. It’s hard to watch, but it all happens so fast you don’t have time to [...]

6. The Children Season 4, Episode 10 Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Directed by Alex Graves When I first watched Game of Thrones’ most recent season finale, I decided it was not only the season’s best episode, but quite possibly the entire series’. It was after all, the only ep HBO submitted for [...]

I actually forgot about two movies I saw in 2014, the new X-Men film and the Michael Fassbender-starring Frank. I’ve retroactively added them to the list. To see my opinions on them, click here. And now, for the Final Five (Battlestar Galactica reference): 5. Blue Ruin The most low-key film on my list, this indie [...]

We’re down to the Top 10 and 2015 is already 25% over, so I’m gonna cut to the chase and (try to) keep it short and sweet. 10. The LEGO Movie I thought this would be a cute, semi-original kid’s movie. I didn’t expect it to make me tear up. The animation— which while done [...]

1. Person of Interest- “The Cold War” “Wars have burned in this world for thousands of years with no end in sight, because people rely so ardently on their so-called ‘beliefs.’ Now they will only need to believe in one thing: me. For I am a god.” Game of Thrones may have absorbed me last [...]

4. True Detective- “Who Goes There” True Detective may have disappointed in the end, and it’s certainly one of the more overrated series of the year, but that didn’t stop “Who Goes There” from blowing me away. This is essentially my “Technical Achievement” award for the year, as while I never got emotionally involved in [...]

7. South Park- “The Cissy” Who woulda thunk South Park would still be relevant in its 18th season? But it is, though as always it’s an uneven animal. I think I liked this season more than most, due in large part to the mild serialization and the extra bit of heart. This episode was one [...]

10. The Walking Dead- “No Sanctuary” Someone from AMC Networks Scripted Programming has been looking at my Linkedin profile and I would love to work there again, so all I’ll say is that The Walking Dead is a very good show. That is all.

8. Lincoln The older Spielberg gets, the more boring of a director he becomes but Lincoln is still a pretty damn good movie. Unfortunately, I think it would have been a stellar stage play, but I guess Tony Kushner felt that that medium wouldn’t do the story justice. The reason this is so low down [...]
