Robin McDonaldEveryone has their favorite chess piece and Daenary's is mine.
She gives the best speeches, seems to be one of the only moral leaders and has the most moral statesmen.
And she has the Dragons who are the only hope of creating weapons to defeat the white walkers.
I don't know how anyone could say what good is she!
You are painting her as the tyrant?

You did score fairly well on the trailer.

We're talking about the woman who fed Masters (guilty or not) to her dragons in an act of brutal terror.
I could go down the list but we'll agree to disagree. I look forward to the new season.

Haven't watched it yet but let me guess it follows every GoT trailer script

-- Cersei saying something like 'we will crush our enemies and all who challenge jaime and me' in a haughty voice
-- Jon talking about the real war vs the white walkers
-- Daenerys talking about how she should be the one in charge of the seven kingdoms (barf)

Are we supposed to be cheering Daenerys leading an army of rapist savages and fire-breathing dragons to Westeros? What redeemable qualities does she have? If your response talks about her gender or upbringing than you've already lost. Season 1 was a long time ago. She's a tyrant and I hope she gets what's coming to her.

BadLieutenantThat's horrible news, and the prospect of speculating on its effect on a movie feels pretty grotesque right now.

This is how I feel. The circumstances of his departure from the film are heartbreaking. I can only imagine the whining, speculation and inappropriate jokes that will flood the internet. It's been easy to pick apart Snyder's work from the last few years, I'm certainly guilty, but I've always had a soft spot for him after Watchmen and Dawn of the Dead. Anyone who can't sympathize with someone who's suffering because they make bad movies is a piece of shit.

Yup. Horrible.

Had massive hopes and I am a huge Ridley Scott fan but was extremely disappointed. Longer post later -- just stepped out. Goddamnit. Fassbender is absolutely incredible and pretty much the only good thing this movie has going for it. Plot holes. Bad characters. Awful story. Boo.

Please punch yourself in the groin as hard as you can if you:

-- Quoted anything the goddamn Nostalgia Critic said. Jesus flipping Christ.
-- Implied that Hardy's Bane didn't fucking rule.

Majorly excited about the casting.

Jason Isaacs is the main captain in Discovery and he's not even in the trailer?

Was convinced to go see it and ended up liking it a lot. I'd rate it on a Troyish level of quality. Some cool fight scenes and really liked the Mage character. Recommend viewing.

Pity. I was strangely drawn to the idea of a Guy Ritchie medieval fantasy with that cast. Goddamnit.

I just can't get excited about the story here. The Allies get absolutely routed, the European mainland gets conquered, and in one of the more bizarre twists of the war Hitler, who could easily and unquestionably have eliminated the Dunkirk pocket........let's them escape. Hitler decided they live. Maybe it was something he did as pretext to his 1941 peace offer to Britain. Who knows.

It isn't a compelling story though. At all. I'm guessing they will change history and have the surviving Allies miraculously escape the Mainland as the Germans are in hot pursuit. When in reality, the Panzer commanders were begging Hitler to let them mop the remaining pocket up. Meh.

I'll try and be as precise as possible, but memory is hazy. Figured some of you may know it anyway.

Premise: Mass destruction, people live behind a wall. Monster(s) smash through the wall. Military force fights monsters with some of grappling type technology plus swords. Hero merges with one of the monsters as well, and fights another monster off.

Obviously, Japanese movie. I don't remember if it was live-action or anime.

Appreciate the help.

I will see it in theaters. He's made several of my all time favorite movies (T1/T2/Aliens) and I am a sci-fi buff. Avatar was an amazing theater experience. Worth the $10.

Planet TerrorIf Abrams never directs another Star Wars movie, it will be too soon. He has a habit of not putting anything good in his mystery boxes. He thinks that just having the box is enough. Sorry, lens flares and outrunning your plot holes with pathos and action sequences does not make for enduring story-telling. Rather, it is nothing more than the cheap and temporary satisfaction of a plastic toy out of a Happy Meal.

I still can't believe more people weren't harping on the "a good question...for another time" line (or w/e it was exactly phrased). Encapsulated JJ in a nutshell. Good god.
