In the King's Name
“There weren’t always dragons in the Valley.” The groans and grumblings of bone-weary sailors fill the ship, banishing the terrible silence below decks and the unease trying to worm its way into my belly. Randall’s at it again, the mad bastard, and I can’t say I’m not grateful for the interruption of the relentless fucking quiet. The same can’t be said for the rest of the men.
To Rid Himself of Rotten Things
With the exception of the rotting fruit and blood-stained cobblestones, one could say that the marketplace had not much changed in the previous few weeks. Rather, since the Incident, as the Doctor had been calling it both in his own mind, and to the other residents on rare speaking occasions. No one quite knew what to refer to it as, nor did they much care to think about the time before. Not that he blamed a single one of them, of course. He, too, preferred to think of his life as if it had not existed a moment ago. Living in the present was the way of the sane man. Unfortunately, he was the sort to ever be consumed by thoughts of the looming and assuredly torturous tomorrow.

'Ibiza': Why Critics Hate It and Audiences Love It
Netflix Original Ibiza is another classic example of a film that critics love to hate, yet audiences can't get enough of. But why is that? The movie features a star-studded cast including Gillian Jacobs, Phoebe Robinson, Vanessa Bayer, and Richard Madden, and is considered to be both a romantic comedy and a raunchy girl's night flick. It seems like the perfect summer movie, and audiences definitely agree! So, why aren't critics on board?
The Hillywood Show's 'Stranger Things' Parody Is Here and It's Super Freaky
Only a few days are left until Season 2 of Netflix's hit sci-fi show, Stranger Things, is finally released. Although the show continues to tease us with sneak peeks, most recently with an unexpected and spooky trailer, fans are still on the edge of their seats, anxiously waiting for the beloved show's return. But thanks to #TheHillywoodShow, we have one more thing to help tide us over: the Stranger Things Parody!
Comics Vs Show: How Archie and the Gang Have Changed
Season 2 of #Riverdale is officially underway, and between the dark mysteries and steamy ships, it's safe to say that Archie and the Gang have grown up. The show keeps the light-hearted humor that the comics contained, but adds its own film noir flair that keeps us on the edge of our seat waiting for the next episode. But while Riverdale continuously pays homage to the Archie comics, there's no question that the characters have diverted from the source material in more ways than one. And with Season 2 undoubtedly bringing even more twists, let's take a look at how the characters have changed from comics to screen.
Horror or Coming of Age: Which Is "It"?
#It has taken the world by storm, breaking huge records in its opening weekend and continuing to climb high. And I must say, after seeing the film, it isn't surprising. This movie is all kinds of scary, and it isn't just #Pennywise the Dancing Clown that will haunt your nightmares. But despite its well deserved 'R' rating, many parents are taking their young children to see It. This begs the question: do they really know what they're getting into? Anyone who has seen the movie will know that there are certain scenes that children should not be viewing. But on the other hand, this #horror flick actually has a lot of strong and hopeful messages. In some moments it almost feels like a wholesome film. You can't help but wonder: is It truly a horror movie? Or could it actually be considered a coming of age film?
The Lone Wolf Prophecy Is Actually Referring to Cersei Lannister
The Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones was a massive one. Between the meeting of almost all of our main characters, a shocking character death, and a startling, game-changing revelation, the finale did not disappoint. As is to be expected with Thrones, one of the biggest and most important moments was one of the more subtle ones. Near the end of the episode during a heartfelt moment between Sansa Stark and Arya Stark, Sansa recalls the words that their father used to say:
'Game of Thrones': Why Arya and Sansa Should Be Working Together
It's hard to believe that the Season 7 finale of #GameofThrones is less than a week away. With #HBO's hit show quickly wrapping up the season, a lot of loose ends are being tied. Alliances are being made, reunions being held, and while there is much cause for excitement, there is one particular arc that has many fans upset. The reunion between #SansaStark and #AryaStark is not what fans were hoping for. In fact, it's the exact opposite. Instead of these two incredible characters joining together to create a dynamic duo, they are at each other's throats. And while much of this is Littlefinger's doing, this story arc could have been avoided. And it should have. Pitting the Stark sisters against each other is one of the most disappointing plots of the show.
4 Reasons Why We Need to Stop Being So Hard on Theon Greyjoy
If we know anything about HBO's Game of Thrones, it's that no character on this show is perfect. Everyone has their flaws, and as soon as we think we have an idea about who the good guys and bad guys are, something happens to completely turn the tables. However, one character that the fans collectively have a love/hate, (or at the very least a pity/hate) relationship with is Theon Greyjoy.
Feminism Has Finally Reached Westeros in Season 7 of 'Game of Thrones'
Season 7 of HBO's hit fantasy show, Game of Thrones is promised to be the biggest yet, and so far, it is not a disappointment. With long-awaited meetings and reunions soon to be underway, along with the biggest battles we've seen yet, there's no confusion as to why fans are so excited. But the most exciting thing about the season? One word: women. The ladies of Westeros are finally being empowered in a way that we have never seen before. In fact, in ways that are quite uncharacteristic for the world we've come to have a love/hate relationship with. Many of our main and even secondary female characters are shining in new ways. Leading armies, ruling the world of politics, exacting justice and more, women are dominating Game of Thrones right now. And it's about time.
Why 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Will Make or Break the Starks
"Ah, the Starks, quick tempers, slow minds." While Littlefinger's sentiment doesn't always ring true, there are, unfortunately, a few too many examples where it does. The Starks have borne some of the most honorable characters in Game of Thrones, characters that may have made noble decisions, but ones that ultimately led them to their demise.
