The scandalous allegations plaguing Director Bryan Singer aren’t enough to deny the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past is a sleek, bold and intelligent film that can go down as one of the finest superhero films in history.

Game of Thrones recap: Peter Dinklage, write your acceptance speech

Guess who just cemented his position as an Emmy frontrunner this year? If your guess is Peter Dinklage, then you are right on the money.

But aside from the Peter’s stellar performance, this week’s episode of Game of Thrones will go down in history as the first not to feature a member of the Stark family. Who would have thought that we’d be able to go through an episode without Jon, Arya, Bran or Sansa? Bold move, HBO, bold move.

Game of Thrones recap: A (purplish) wedding and a funeral

Those who have read the A Song of Ice and Fire (ASOIAF) books know that King Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell’s nuptial, or the Purple Wedding as it is fondly called by fans, will be one of this season’s highlights. Honestly, I was expecting to see it during the fourth or fifth episode because after the said wedding, the showrunners are left with only few materials to work with for this season. Remember that this season of Game of Thrones is based just on the second half of ASOIAF’s third book and not on its fourth (the fourth and fifth books, I believe, will be told in seasons five and six).

The Purple Wedding being shown in the second episode is tantamount to HBO declaring that there are a lot more to expect this year. So to my fellow fans, we better be prepared for what’s in store for us in the remaining eight episodes.
