Game of Thrones S08E06 Review - Dany has Tyrion arrested

Game of Thrones S08E06 Review

Eight years ago the first episode of Game of Thrones aired. I had been anticipating the series for a few weeks then. I had hoped it would be a grand and successful series, but I could never imagine how big it became. During the first season I also had numerous reminders of the TV series ‘Our Friends in the North’ by the BBC from 90s due the very familiar cast. Nonetheless Game of Thrones found solid ground and kept on running but it ran out of breath this season. So how about that final episode? I take it most of...

Game Of Thrones S08E05 The Bells Review

And so we saw the penultimate episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones – The Bells. As is traditional this is usually the bloodiest episode of the season with the last dealing with the consequences. Ooh and bloody it was indeed, the sack of King’s Landing. For that is what it was. The episode has it fair share of deaths: Varys, Euron, Qyburn, Harry from the Golden Company, Jaime and Cersei, Sandor and Gregor Clegane. But what is stranger is the final character development of Jon and Dany – with the latter’s coin finally tumbling to a halt and coming the...

Solo: A Star Wars Story Review – A good movie that sets the stage for a sequel

After more than year of constant news portraying Solo: A Star Wars Story as a troubled production you almost don’t want to see it. I certainly did go to the cinema yesterday with trepidation and anxiety. I left the cinema relieved, the movie wasn’t bad. In fact, I liked Solo, but I also recognize it is not per se a great movie. So what is Solo: A Star Wars Story all about? At its heart it is a heist movie. After escaping from Corellian poverty Han (Alden Ehrenreich) vows to go back to help his girlfriend Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke). To...

Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys

Terminator Genisys Review – A decent start ends in near disaster!

Terminator Genisys Terminator Genisyss is an odd movie. I was so NOT looking forward to it. With Jurassic World you knew it would never be as good as the original, but I still had high hopes. Yet that franchise has seen it fare share of failed sequels. Terminator is different. After an excellent T1 and T2 another two sequels were produced that totally disregarded the originals cinematography and action style. Instead they were two popcorn flicks when they didn’t need to be. I think fans are right to be skeptical about the future of the franchise. As my expectations for this movie were extremely low I...

Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister talking to Daenarys. Game of Thrones S5Ep8 Hardhome Review.

Game of Thrones S5Ep8 Hardhome Review

Game of Thrones can be a frustrating show to watch. Most fans already know what is going to happen. They have read the books to G.R.R. Martin’s ongoing series A Song Of Ice And Fire. There are some significant differences between the books and the TV-series. The frustration is made worse because it is not becoming clear at all who will sit on the Iron Throne. So far season 5 has been especially hard hit by circumstance. The deviations from the source material is wearing out some hard-core fans while casual viewers are left wondering what has happened in any previous...

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Preview. Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Preview

On April 12th, in just over two months time, Game Of Thrones will return for its fifth season. The show, along with the novels written by George R.R. Martin, is slowly drawing to its conclusion. Though we still have two more novels to go and at least three more seasons until its finished. I have been looking forward to season 5 with more trepidation than I did with previous seasons. The violence and nudity have for me become less important than the fate of the beloved and sometimes hated characters. Here on SciFiEmpire I pretty much write about anything, it doesn’t...

Terminator Genisys Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor

Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released

After Jurassic World and Star Wars Episode 7 another Sci-fi sequel/reboot received a trailer to woo fans. For the most part Terminator: Genisys slipped beneath my radar. After all, if you have seen T3 and T4: Salvation who wants to see another Terminator movie. However, with the involvement of Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger the buzz has been positive. Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released Sadly, after I saw this trailer I was not convinced the movie is on the right track. It tries hard to capture the feel of the first and second terminator movies. Those who watch the trailer (below) will...

Game Of Thrones S4Ep7 Mockingbird Review - Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson as The Mountain (Clegane)

Game Of Thrones S4Ep7 Mockingbird Review

I find Game of Thrones exceedingly hard to review. The episodes are always brilliant, their quality surprisingly consistent. Yet, some episode that are considered the best are also painful to watch. Game of Thrones doesn’t beat around the bush with its drama. Drama accentuated by gore, nudity, torture (a form of gore) and humor. It is the show for dilettante, but they need to remember that all men must die. Mockingbird is the seventh episode of season 4 of GoT. It sets the pieces for episodes 8 and 9 which will act as the high water mark. There is not much...
