Had to do a top three, some years I wanted to do a top 5.
1990: Goodfellas (RU: The Grifters, Misery)
1991: Thelma & Louise (RU: Boyz n the Hood, The Silence of the Lambs)
1992: The Crying Game (RU: Unforgiven, Husbands and Wives)
1993: True Romance (RU: In the Name of the Father, Jurassic Park)
1994: Pulp Fiction (RU: Forrest Gump, Ed…[Read more]
I assume it’s because of the Kill Bill confusion. They released it as two films but Tarantino counts it as one. It’s his 10th film, if you count Kill Bill as two films
The moment he releases a cut of Kill Bill as one film. I’ll consider it one movie. As it stands, I view this as his tenth movie.

I recently watched/re-watched the Best Picture Nominees from the following years. Here’s my ratings and personal rankings,
- One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest – 5/5
- Jaws – 5/5
- Dog Day Afternoon – 5/5 (I rank it 2nd when it comes to voting)
- Barry Lyndon – 5/5
- Nashville – 4/5
- Network – 5/5
- Taxi Driver – 5/5
- All the…
Definitely, given that they never did get the nods they deserved. I presume that’s why they only submit the main 7 now.
They would nominated 3-6 actors in Supporting Actor and Actress in the first 4 years. But they never got more than 2 acting submissions, only Dinklage for seasons 1 and 2. There’s no denying that the later strategy has been more…[Read more]

If I was in charge of the Golden Globes I’d split the directing, writing and supporting categories into Drama and Musical/Comedy categories. Just like in Lead and Picture.
Either do them all or none at all.
Having a look at Writing/Directing winners since the 70s
Steven Spielberg for Saving Private Ryan/Schindler’s List
Alejandro G. Inarritu for Birdman
Steven Soderbergh for Traffic
Milos Forman for Amadeus
John G Alvidsen for Rocky (Directing wise, he’s never been better)
Quentin Tarantino for Pulp Fiction
Cameron Crowe for Almost…[Read more]
Claudio Ranieri – An Italian Football (Soccer) Manager who was the manager of Leicester City during the season they won the Premier League. The odds of them winning the league were 5000-1 and it is one of the greatest underdog moments in sports history. To put it into perspective, Leicester were the favourites to get relegated from the league…[Read more]
I thought this finale was great, and in defense of Bran becoming the king. My takeaway wasn’t that he was king, it was the fact that it has become a democracy. As Tyrion states, from now on they will elect the best ruler. Not just have a king’s son rule the throne.
The main complaint was that no one significant died, it didn’t impact the overall plot enough. And they said that the action and narrative was stop-start.
But also, this show unfortunately has a large amount of viewers who simply nitpick and are never satisfied.
I was curious to see what the earlier views of Game of Thrones was on this site, considering how much backlash there has been this season.
I’ve tediously read the threads for Seasons 3 and 4 (Fortunately, there was no more than two threads for either season). And damn did these threads have their haters, there were more negative comments than…[Read more]
I loved how Cersei went out, I saw it as being killed by her own flaws, she believed she was invincible, she could counter anything Dany threw at her. She had plenty of time to leave but left it too late because she overestimated herself and her army. As Tywin said in Season 3 “I don’t distrust you because you’re a woman; I distrust you because…[Read more]
It’s through remorse. Season 1 Jaime would have never apologised to Bran for pushing him out of the window. At the time, he believed his actions to be justified and wouldn’t apologise for it.
A lot of how he has changed has come through the fact that in Season 1, he could only be honest with his family. He didn’t have “Friends” or people he…[Read more]
I think the way the show concluded Jaime’s arc was true to his character. Cersei was his addiction, and him not being able to quit her was true to life, and his character. Jaime had a taste of happiness with Brienne but ultimately decided he wasn’t worthy of it. He felt like he deserved to die, and went to go die with Cersei. As much as we would…[Read more]
I strongly disagree with your use of the term “Terrible writing”. I think it’s just being far too overused lately. What they’ve done is a common storytelling choice. Go watch the Room if you want to see actual terrible writing. We’ll just keep going in circles when it comes to the cutting their reactions, let’s just put it down to preference. I…[Read more]
But they cut to avoid repeating things we (The audience) already knew. I’d agree with you if we didn’t know the truth about Jon’s heritage. But we know exactly what he was going to tell them. But also, criticising this is like criticising the Dracarys scene from Season 3. Daenerys planned on backstabbing the masters, but the show didn’t show us…[Read more]
Maybe you should wait until the season is over before judging her arc and intentions.
And you can cut away from it, story wise, nothing has changed from cutting that scene. Sansa used the situation to her advantage and told Tyrion. Just because you wanted that scene, doesn’t mean that them not showing it, is inherently bad.
It’s not so much about not respecting her, it’s about his flaws and him not being able to let go of Cersei, she’s his poison and much like Jesse from Breaking Bad, he believes he’s a villain. Like he doesn’t deserve happiness. He’s never exactly been someone who’s been able to explain his motives (Just look at what happened with the Mad…[Read more]
On IMDB, over 6000 people have given this episode a 1/10, which is absolutely ridiculous. This episode had some fantastic character moments, especially that first half. I loved Jaime and Brienne’s relationship this episode. Tormund is hilarious, Sandor and Arya have a lot of great moments. They’ve also returned focus towards political…[Read more]
Loved this episode. It’s a great showcase for the entire main cast. Everyone gets their moment to shine, and I loved how they furthered Barry’s growth as an actor.
I’ll be wounded if Michael Douglas does win over Bill Hader. He’s fantastic in this role. Having seen The Marvellous Mrs Maisel – Season 2. And i’m now up to date on Veep. Barry is my…[Read more]
