Obviously, this post is going to contain MASSIVE spoilers for the Game of Thrones season finale. Now's your chance to stop reading and escape unsullied.After eight seasons, the final moments of Game of Thrones brought some big shakeups from what viewers have been expecting. The destruction of King's Landing has seemingly led to a better world in the Season 8 finale, although not the one that some characters have been working toward for years. Westeros moves forward not through conquest, but through (a tiny bit of) democracy.A whole lot of wrap-up got handled in Episode 6, "The Iron Throne," the last of the show. First and foremost, we saw the end of Daenerys Targaryen. After she destroyed King's Landing, she finally lost the support of some of her best allies (although not all of them). Jon begged Dany to show Tyrion mercy, and when she refused, he took action--murdering Daenerys to stop her from ruling the Seven Kingdoms (and beyond) with fear and dragon fire. After her death, Drogon … [Read more...] about Game Of Thrones Finale: The Ending Explained
When it comes to spoilers in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel Studios and Sony aren't being anywhere near as cautious as with Avengers: Endgame. A new promo manages to spoil something major that was hinted at in an earlier trailer, which is impressive since the clip in question is only five seconds long. If you don't want to be spoiled, now's when you should stop reading.The promo confirms that MJ (Zendaya) finds out Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) secret identity as Spider-Man, making her the second of Peter's school friends to realize he has extraordinary powers--the other being Ned (Jacob Batalon). The video was caught by a user on Twitter, who shared it.This plot twist was first hinted at in the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, in which MJ confronts Peter with his secret identity, telling him, "It's kind of obvious." Still, given the Marvel Cinematic Universe's reliance on secrecy and misdirects in trailers, it was hard to believe this is how the story would go.In the latest … [Read more...] about Spider-Man: Far From Home Teaser Clip Confirms Major Spoiler
The final episode of Game of Thrones saw the conclusion of eight seasons of stories, some ending tragically while others came out pretty well, all things considered. The series finale, entitled "The Iron Throne," also saw the return of a few characters who've been missing from the show for a while, giving us a look at what happened to them since their last appearance. There's one person in particular, a young man, whom you may or may not remember--but he's looking a whole lot different these days. Here's what you might have forgotten.A word of warning: there are spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 6, beyond this point!After Daenerys Targaryen's sack of King's Landing, Tyrion Lannister tries to convince Jon Snow that something has to be done about the queen. Jon is finally convinced and when he finds himself alone with Dany, he pledges his loyalty to her one last time--before stabbing her with a dagger, killing her.Without a monarch to lead the Seven Kingdoms, the surviving … [Read more...] about Game Of Thrones Recap: Who Was That Kid At The Council Meeting?
At the end of John Wick 2, with what looked like the entire city of New York about to take up arms against Keanu Reeves' titular hero, it seemed like the next chapter in the assassin's saga would have to wrap things up one way or another. We were pretty surprised, then, when John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum concluded not with John's death or his triumph over the High Table, but basically where it began: with John Wick on the run, out of friends, the whole world against him. But was Winston's betrayal of John real, or is there more to it than that?At the end of John Wick 2, Winston (Ian McShane) gave John an hour's head start. He was still on the assassin's side, despite the reality of John's affront against the High Table's laws when he spilled blood on Continental grounds. By John Wick 3's conclusion, Winston has fully turned on John, shooting him repeatedly and sending him careening over the edge of the Continental's roof. But are things really that black and white?The Continental vs. … [Read more...] about John Wick 3 Ending Explained: What The Heck Just Happened?
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum is in theaters now and, if you love the first two John Wick movies, chances are you'll enjoy yourself. GameSpot's Michael Rougeau certainly did in his review of the film. It's loaded with the kind of action and fight scenes that make the John Wick franchise so great, and there are some interesting new characters that expand this crazy world even further. That said, it's not perfect. In fact, it's staring down the barrel of a massive problem that could spoil the franchise if left unchecked. If you haven't seen John Wick: Chapter 3 yet, stop reading now. This is your one and only spoiler warning.The first John Wick is a practically perfect movie. It's a revenge tale that sees Keanu Reeves at arguably the best he's ever been, with fantastically choreographed fight scenes and an urgency to the story that leaves you tense and on the edge of your seat. It's also self-contained. While there are hints of a larger world within the society of assassins … [Read more...] about John Wick 3 Is A Symptom Of A Much Larger Problem
