Games Of Throne – Season 4 – The Wrap Up

I finished up the show a little while back but took me time to talk about it, and it is by far one of the best shows on TV for a very long time now. This season had everything for me and satisfied me by killing off people I hated, one specific bastard that I really hated. I’m assuming who ever is reading this has probably seen season 4, if not then there will be a lot of spoilers ahead. I do love seen the spoilers and there is a lot coming up for Season 5, and I love how the story is developing, now to see whats going to come from the North. Too bad the Prince of Dorne got killed off, Oberyn was a very eccentric character, and as usual Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister does amazingly and the second half of the season he plays his role brilliantly. I love how there are so many different story lines to follow between John Snow & Daenerys Targaryen and whats going on in Kings Landing but you are always kept on your toes, it’s going to be a while before Season 5 but hopefully its going to be even better.

Kill La Kill – Must See

Plot Summary: Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She’s looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman’s identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special “goku uniform,” and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

A fantastic anime from the creators of Gurren Laggan, with the same spirit and fire that fueled that anime and I especially love the style. You will always be routing for Ryuuki Matoi in the story and this is one of the best developed storylines I have seen in a long time, you can’t help but love all the characters, this is a rare breed of anime. And there is a fantastic twist towards the end that really gets you riled up. The action is nonstop if a lot of fan service nudity, but there is no episode that leaves you disappointed, and full of humor of every kind. If you have any inclination towards anime then this is a must, and if you haven’t seen it then you are really missing out.

Game Of Thrones – An Epic Third Season

GoTDaenerysTargaryen

Every season just keeps getting better, and from what some of the critics say, the show is getting even better then the book. I’m expecting it to last two more seasons, and for them to wrap up this insane show. I only read the first book, but I heard book 4 and 5 have too much information, but the show has brought some of these characters to life and in season 3 you either hate someone more or love them more. I don’t want to ruin the show for anyone, and I watched the show all one go, I didn’t watch episode as it was released, in a 24 hour period I watched all the episodes so after eating and breathing Game of Thrones I really wanted more, and episode 9 is EPIC, I love that the keep you on your toes in this show. You get invested with some of the characters and they throw an unexpected twist your way. The best two characters in this show by far are Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion is the only man standing up to the bastard King and he says exactly what you are thinking. Daenerys Targaryen has developed into something bigger and more fierce then I thought she could be, she takes the most decisions in the storyline that she literally makes you want to stand up and clap, she can have her own show the way she is going, I’m looking forward to seeing how they bring this all together.

Review: Snow White & The Huntsman

In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.

I might have had higher expectations then what I should have when going into this movie, at times it surprised me but mostly it bored the hell out of me. People to my left were playing with instagram in the movie theater and people to my right were having a conversation about “Nora’s” Dinner party (No clue who Nora is). The movie just didn’t catch my interest as the story went along, and its a little too long, at some points it loses you because they are trying to tell a big story and introducing new characters. The main thing is that so many characters are introduced that you don’t really get attached to the main characters. Chris Hemsworth is the Huntsman and he does a pretty decent job but he is no Thor, I think that was one of my mistakes. Kristen (Or the Girl from The Vampire Movies) just didn’t work too well for me, I don’t know why but she didn’t fit. The star of the movie though was Charlize Theron she really knew how to play the evil queen/witch, and she played her part well. They tried to make a great movie and tie in the original snow white story but overall it didn’t cut it and don’t waste your time with this movie.

Review: Heroes Of The Valley – Jonothan Stroud

Halli Sveinsson has grown up in the House of Svein, listening to the legends of the heroes as all his forefathers did. His is a peaceful society where the violence of the past has been outlawed and disputes are settled by the Council. But young Halli has never quite seemed to fit in with the others. For starters, he was not at all handsome or tall, like his attractive blond siblings. He’s stumpy and swarthy, with a quick mind and aptitude for getting in trouble. Bored with the everyday chores and sheep herding, he can’t help himself from playing practical jokes on everyone, from Eyjolf the old servant, to his brother and sister. But when he plays a trick on Ragnor of the House of Hakonsson, he goes too far, setting in motion a chain of events that will forever alter his destiny. Because of it, Halli will have to leave home and go on a hero’s quest. Along the way, he will encounter highway robbers, terrifying monsters, and a girl who may finally be his match. In the end, he will discover the truth about the legends, his family, and himself.

I have always been a fan of Jonathan Stroud since his Barthalemous book trilogy which really pulled me in, I was expecting a book just as good as those set. And this book was in the young adult section and I honestly don’t care as long as its a good well written story, so I started reading it and getting more and more into it. A Valley with only certain number of tribes and one young man who is determined to find his own path. After reading the book I just felt that it just didn’t live up to my expectations, its not a bad book but I wish I didn’t waste my time on it since there are a lot of better books out there and I have on a pile waiting to go.
