    The second episode of the 5th season was even better than last week's premiere. It included some truly magnificent cinematography, wonderful action scene featuring Brienne and The Wall's storyline loveliest moment to date.

    Game of Thrones 5x01 The Wars to Come

    By Sati. Monday, April 13, 2015 22 Comments
    We're back! And what a return it was. Season 5 of Game of Thrones opened with a very strong episode and though some of the important characters weren't in this one, we got to check in with the key players. And more importantly - The One True King is back. All scruffy and wearing a furry cloak.

    Ah, how I missed you, your grace.

    12 cinematic and television gems I found because of my actor crushes

    By Sati. Sunday, April 5, 2015 , , , , , , , , , , , , , 32 Comments

    My way of watching films? See everything the actor I adore is in. I've recently acquired such obscure stuff with Stephen Dillane that I'm amazed I even managed to find it (and thanks to everyone who helped!). I don't care what imdb rating is. I don't even care what the movie is about. If he is in it, I'll watch it.

    It's a technique I employed for years and while I have seen so much shit (Idris Elba really needs to be in better movies, seriously) there are several films which I watched and absolutely adored that I wouldn't have found if it wasn't for my love for that one particular actor who is in it. And almost all of those are completely unknown to the general public, so yet again let me shine a light on these true gems I found, hoping that you guys manage to find them and watch them:

    White Swan, Black Swan blogathon

    By Sati. 37 Comments
    For the new blogathon I thought it would be fun to pay homage to my all time favorite movie and one of my favorite types of characters - Black Swan.

    What is black swan you may ask, Well, it has never been stated as an official term but I'd like to think the idea of a black swan/white swan is a very elegant way of depicting the duality in characters. So I encourage you to write about your favorite white swans/black swans, both in movies and in TV series.

    There are so many fascinating cases of character being one thing to the outside world and completely different person in reality - Mavis from Young Adult, Patrick Bateman from American Psycho, Brandon from can choose characters from all the genres and it's doesn't matter if they are lead or very supporting.

    I'd love for this to be also the opportunity to write about those fascinating characters from the psychological standpoint, so go for it!

    This will probably be completely weird to those who don't post there, on GoT fanboard, but there is plenty of folks who do I've been posting with for the last 2 years. I've been banned from posting there and I just want to say I'll miss talking to you guys, sharing my insane Stoneheart hopes, downright perverted Stannis musings, my gifs and my recaps.

  • We got new promo still of Stannis!
  • Oh God, look how beautiful.
  •  Kerry Ingram, who plays Stannis' daughter Shireen, said that Stephen Dillane "stays in character" on set and that she doesn't talk to him between takes and only does when they're in the car being driven away from set and then he's "lovely". 
  • I'm having so many feels my heart is gonna explode.
  • I really want Stannis to have a scene with Shireen again.They are both so precious. Melisandre you stay away from that child!
  • Carice and Liam keep giving interviews and apparently Davos may or may not be in a 'shocking scene' this year and Melisandre is up to no good. I really hope it's not Davos or Shireen who die but I can easily imagine a scenario where Davos dies protecting Shireen from those crazy bitches. Don't take Davos away from Stannis for the love of God!

    10 underrated Game of Thrones performances

    By Sati. Tuesday, March 31, 2015 , 20 Comments
    Game of Thrones is the show with the biggest ensemble of regular cast members currently airing - the show has nearly 30 cast members credited as regulars and hundreds of characters.  A number of actors received their Emmy nominations, there were many wins for Peter Dinklage and there is a lot of love for people like Conleth Hill, Gwendoline Christie and Michelle Fairley, whose lack of Emmy nomination and win borders on travesty. But today I wanted to focus on the wonderful performances by those who are very supporting in the ensemble - some appearing in just few episodes, some gone from several seasons and some only with the new season promoted to series regulars. Here are those who are just wonderful and contribute so much to the series being so incredibly well acted:

    11 things to look forward to in Game of Thrones 5

    By Sati. Sunday, March 29, 2015 , 26 Comments
    We're two weeks away from the season premiere of Game of Thrones 5. It's hard to predict what events from the books are gonna be featured in this season, thanks to quite secretive marketing campaign (we only have 2 trailers and 2 short TV spots) and the many changes from the books already indicated in the released footage. Also the show goes further than the stories in the books - most notably with Sansa and so far it looks that to avoid spoiling whatever happens for her next, her story will merge with some of the plots from published books.

    Anyways, here's what we know for sure that's gonna happen in this season that I'm looking forward to:
