GAME OF THRONES – Season Seven (2017)

Irrespective of what many of the series’ fans have to complain about the falling standards of writing owing to the absence of George R R Martin’s hand in the story, the seventh season of Game of Thrones did enough right for me to keep me hooked. The primary reasons for that will have to be…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Six (2016)

Game of Thrones: Season Six has my favorite episode of all the seasons to date. The one I am referring to is the final episode of the season wherein Cersei finally has her revenge on the Sparrows as she blows away the Sept using the same explosives that Tyrion used to overpower Stannis. The scene…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Five (2015)

Tywin is buried and Lancel, one of Cersei’s cousins and her partner in fornication returns, now a devoutly religious man and a member of the “Sparrows”. In Pentos, a despondent Tyrion agrees to accompany Varys to Meereen to support Targaryen’s claim on the Iron Throne. In Meereen, the insurgent “Sons of the Harpy” murder an…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Four (2014)

Game of Thrones: Season 4 has one of the most satisfying if not good episodes of the series yet. The one that I am talking about is episode 2 wherein Joffrey finally dies. I hated this character from the beginning of the show and finally in this series he pays for all that he had…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Three (2013)

Game of Thrones: Season 3 introduces some much-needed heroism and sequences that would make you go limp. What I mean by that are moments like the one in Gladiator when Maximus’ identity is revealed to the king and the masses, like that scene in Braveheart where William Wallace talk peasants into fighting the English with…

GAME OF THRONES – Season Two (2012)

Game of Thrones: Season 2 starts off from where the first season left off. After losing Khal Drogo and his Dothrakis, Khaleesi is trying to make her way through the treacherous terrains with nothing more than her three newly born dragons and a handful of confidants. Robb Stark is making his move on the Lannisters…

GAME OF THRONES – Season One (2011)

Game of Thrones has been a series that has been around for quite some time now. The first episode aired way back in 2011 when I was primarily into cinema and hadn’t become aware of the magic of American television. Television in America, if I may dare say so, is at many times better than…

IT (1990) – Mini Series

Stephen King has mesmerized generations of bibliophiles with his intricate mysteries and when we speak of the horror genre, one of his creations that is mentioned the most is “IT”. The story about a marauding evil spirit that takes up the shape of a clown and hunts kids has an ominous ring to it. I…
