The thing that made Magua such a great villain, other than the fact that Studi ROCKED the role, is that he had a legitimate beef with the British. His backstory was heartbreaking and I can totally see why he just couldn’t let it go.
Yep. I should give the movie another chance, I wasn’t a huge fan and that was largely because it’s about Natty Friggin Bumpo and he annoys me (as a character, not in Day-Lewis’ performance), but two hours about Magua and I would’ve been very happy.
Magua is one of those villains that you kind of side with. He has a point, even if you might not agree with his methods. And Studi plays him in such a restrained way. What an amazing movie.
There’s nothing in the Continental’s rule books that say a dog CAN’T be an assassin!
You know it’s sad that a hitman shows more loyalty to his dog than Jon Snow did for his direwolf. Ooh, maybe in the next John Wick, he can adopt Ghost and kick ass as a duo.
“Family good. Chair bad. Burn chair. Take mom”.
Drogon melting the Iron Throne was worth the price of admission.
He already knew he would be king, so that’s some time travel for you. And some upcoming warging to find Drogon (and what then, btw?).
Yeah, Jon betrayed his honor and went with the Wildlings. ‘And it will be all worth it’ (hmm maybe a new Ygrette in his future?) Who’s gonna look for him beyond the wall? (The wall wasn’t destroyed at Castle Black. It was destroyed at Eastwatch)
On the bright side, the Iron Bank probably got stiffed on the loans they made to Cersi for the Golden Company.
Greyworm’s whole character really fell apart at the end there. Yes, he’s been a follower his whole life, but for someone with such an intense, fanatical devotion to Dany his reaction to her death didn’t make much sense. I can sort of see the logic as in the absence of a leader he had to follow the diplomatic course,…
First and foremost, good for Robin Arryn for going full Neville Longbottom.
Wasn’t Jon’s punishment to join the Nightswatch again? Instead he ran off with the Wildings. (And his one true love, Tormund). Also - how the fuck was the wall back? Did it regrow?
Well, with that and a character named Sam writing a book named after the actual source material, perhaps this wasn't as anti-Tolkien as it made out.
I’m fully convinced one of the writers was just re-watching The Lion King the night they wrote the scene of Drogon reacting to his dead mom.
I was half expecting the Hobbit theme to start playing there.
Seriously, it was like “Return of the King 2: Electric Bugaloo”.
Grey Worm had a city and two high-profile prisoners.
He ended up with no city and no high-profile prisoners.
Part of Tyrion’s prison reform was an apprenticeship as a seamstress. Not bad for the one outfit he had time to make her in the 11 minutes she had to cultivate that gitup.
Well, I liked the Dany/Jon scene with the Iron Throne, and it was especially heartbreaking to see Drogon nudging her lifeless body, but overall I can’t help but feel somewhat underwhelmed at that finale.
