South Korea has had just about the best movies for the last decade.

[Quote] Hong Kong's been dead since the handover in 97. Most of the better filmmakers came to America or went to Taiwan.

HBO's Game of Thrones

[Quote] Honestly, not really. They've actually stuck very close to the books. They've skipped over a ton of back story and character development. In the book you find out a lot more about the mythology and history of the world and secondary characters like the different members of the Night's Watch, the Hound and his brother, and Theon Greyjoy. It's understandable why they skip over it...you'd spend 5 seasons on the first book otherwise. I'm surprised they've been able to fit in as much info and as many characters as they have.

[Quote] You gotta consider that Jaime is one of the greatest Knights in Westeros while Ned is a Lord who hasn't seen combat since Robert took the throne and there's an age gap. Having read the books, watching people speculate about what happens next is about as fun as actually watching the show.

Best Shoe for working out?

Another vote for the 90s. I've been using an old pair of 90s for the past few months to work out in and I've been enjoying them. No pain in my feet or back after a long workout like I used to get with a few other shoes.

I won't give any spoilers but for a long time the zombies are the least of everyone's worries. In terms of the metaphor, "winter" (bad shit) does come. Now that most of the characters have been introduced the next episode should be when everything starts getting crazy.

[Quote] Usually that's an issue with firefox or whatever browser you're using. Clear your history and temp. internet files and it fixes any stuttering with video websites most of the time.

[Quote] Trust me, winter not coming is not a spoiler. "Winter is coming" is just a metaphor for bad shit is going to happen. It's not literal. The changing of seasons has pretty much nothing to do with the story. In the books the season won't change to winter till like Book 6 and Book 4 is out now.

Do not see THOR in 3D !!!!

[Quote] Exactly. A lot of the theaters are forcing 3D as the only option for times when you can actually go see a movie.

Do not see THOR in 3D !!!!

Good luck...chances are it'll be like Green Hornet. 2D showings will be done with by 4:00 in the afternoon and your only choices after that are 3D.

So far the show has exceeded my expectations. Every one is cast perfectly and they're actually staying really true to the book. The last episode actually set up a TON of shit that's going to be important later on especially with Peteyr Baelish and the relationship between Jaime and the King and the Lannisters and the Starks. With how many characters are in this series you have to think of these first few episodes like the first few episodes of the Wire. There's a lot to set up but once it's in place the story moves much quicker. [Quote] Be ready for disappointment. The series is on book 4 now and it's still not winter. I want to find Daenerys hot but I just feel weird knowing that in the books she's 13 when she marries Khal Drogo.
