Special effects hold a dear place in many of our nerdy hearts. Those folks that turn writers dreams into miraculous looking dragons on HBO‘s Game Of Thrones for instance. Emilia Clarke loves green yarn, but even thought the director couldn’t get her to put it down, the effects people were able to turn it into this: (more…)
Without getting any further into it, be advised that the following article contains some spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6, episode 4, “Book of the Stranger.” SPOILER ALERT! Okay, you’ve been warned. If you saw last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, then you saw the powerful last scene, in which Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) takes out the entire Dothraki leadership by setting fire to the Temple of the Dosh Khaleen while she’s still inside. Dany emerges from the inferno, head held high, naked as the day she entered the world, inspiring awe and fear in all present. Now, Clarke shares a few words on the nude scene and whether or not she used a body double.
You know her as Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, in HBO‘s Game of Thrones, and as the mother of John Conner in Terminator Genisys and now Emilia Clarke can add Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive to her growing list of titles. Check out her very revealing photo-shoot below. (more…)
Game of Thrones is arguably one of the best television series to hit cable in years. It is a series that transcends genres, blending equal parts fantasy, action, and historical fiction, all while maintaining several storylines for audiences to bite into. Two of the aspects that initially draw viewers to the series, however, are the depictions of sex and violence, which can be rather explicit and fairly realistic. Those actors who decide to join the show are generally assumed to feel comfortable with this nudity and blood; after all, they did sign up for the series and one would assume that the actors would understand what they were getting into. Well, for one Mother of Dragons, this isn’t the case, and actress Emilia Clarke has opted to skip nude scenes involving her character. Well, now Clark has a few more words to say about sex on television and, as you may guess, they are not in support. (more…)

Hey Internet, do you like movies about ineffective robots that go back in time to muddled and defective plots riddled with holes? Then do we have a movie for you. Yes, Terminator Genisys is out and it is not good so we turned on the microphones and were unnecessarily harsh on ol’Arnie’s new movie. (Young Arnie was mostly saved from the rancor because he’s not really real.) (more…)
There’s a scene in one episode of Community where Abed is analyzing a fight amongst the study group in the meta-contextual way only he can. As Abed explains the situation, as he sees it, Jeff cuts in infuriated and says, “Why do you have to take everything that happens to us, and shove it up its own ass?” (Or words to that effect.) That thought came to mind while watching Terminator: Genisys, the third attempt by directors who are not James Cameron, to find a way to continue a story that James Cameron so thoroughly and soundly concluded at the end of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. To its credit, Genisys does it better than either of the previous attempts, but it also proves that the idea is a fool’s errand. (more…)
The highly controversial, but no less impressive, Terminator: Genysis seems to be pulling out all the stops for this third time’s the charm attempt to make a bigger, better franchise for the cyborg saga. The seemingly ambitious project looks to re-write Terminator history so that this fifth installment is neither a remake or a reboot, while at the same time it recasts the classic roles from the 30-year-old film to tell a new story that takes place inside the original film. Only Arnold Schwarzenegger remains of course, he will play the older, yet still bad ass, T-800. Here’s the weird thing, in the last trailer, the film revealed what looked like a pretty big spoiler. And now, in the new poster and TV ad, it seems as if Genisys is doubling and tripling down on the spoilage. The good news, at least in the case of the TV commercial, is that it’s Japanese. So you’re fairly unlikely to see it if you’re hoping to avoid spoilers.
So we’ve been burned twice in the attempt to reboot Terminator without James Cameron and turn it into an epic trilogy filled with trills, chills and spills, all to make some mad bills at the box office. Now Terminator 3 had its moments, and Terminator Salvation had potential until they wussed out on the ending, but can there truly be a satisfying chapter of this series without the man whose vision started it all? That’s the question that Terminator Genisys will try to answer, and from the looks of it, the movie is pulling out all the time travel stops with paradoxes and retconning – TO THE MAX! But now there’s a new twist provided in the latest trailer. Which you can or cannot watch for yourself below. (more…)
As promised in yesterday’s teaser, today is Judgement Day…. and by that I mean the day we judge our first look at the latest installment in the Terminator franchise.
Yes, the first full trailer for Terminator Genisys hit the ‘net today and as far as first looks go, it doesn’t look half bad. We have a new Sarah Conner (Emilia Clarke,) a new Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney,) and even a new John Conner (Jason Clarke,) sporting more facial scars than any actor in the role ever! More mean it’s good, right?
The real good news is that the Terminator remains the same. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger returning as the (a) T-800 is not news, we’ve known for a while now that he’ll be back as the aged cyborg from the future that raises this new timeline version of Sarah Conner since the history has been officially reset in this apparent soft reboot. At first look, the trailer eases some of the concerns many of us had about this redux of the franchise. (more…)
Marketing for the big releases next year are well under way, and now Paramount have decided to test the water this coming Thursday with the release of the Terminator: Genisys trailer. With the controversy surrounding the images that were released by EW recently, and the story details that have emerged lately, fans are already bracing themselves for more mediocre affair following the release of the terrible McG directed disaster, Terminator Salvation. There has obviously been an effort from director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) – or at least we hope so – to make a decent film, and we have the original T-800 – Arnold Schwartzenegger – back on board and not some crappy gimmicky CGI version of him.
