Ranking the Game of Thrones Seasons

Game of Thrones was a genuine cultural phenomenon. Given how badly it ended, you might forget there was a point when it was perfectly fun genre television. I would even say it’s worth going back and watching some of it. Find out which seasons were worth the time. Continue reading Ranking the Game of Thrones Seasons

There Will Be Movies – Episode 87: The Terminator

Ben Phillips & Matt Waters present 25 of their favourite movies from a given decade, and for what could be the last time they’ll be focusing on 1980 – 1989.

For many years Ben has had to suffer in private as Matt expressed his preference for this movie over its more iconic sequel. Now his suffering can end as the pair take things public for a fun discussion of the entire franchise and occasionally remember to cover the actual movie.

Paul Schrader is one of the most interesting and talented auteurs since the 70s. Despite having a clear style, a prolific filmography, and a long record of great works over six decades, he somehow has missed out on the accolades and the financial success that many of his peers have experienced.

He’s also pretty close to being truly uncancelable so it should be smooth sailings from here on out for him to be remembered as one of the greats.
