Hilarious video does the impossible and turns Joffrey into the hero of Game of Thrones

Joffrey is such a despicable character on Game of Thrones with such a punchable face and hateful personality that it’s pretty much impossible to make him look good. And yet! This video by Blood Blitz Comedy tries its hardest to re-edit the show to make Joffrey look like the true hero he could have been if he wasn’t… »9/01/15 8:40pmTuesday 8:40pm

The special effects behind Game of Thrones' epic White Walker battle

The VFX in Game of Thrones is consistently great for a TV show, with some scenes rivaling the very best of any visual medium. And this past season’s battle (or massacre) at Hardhome between the White Walkers and wights vs The Night’s Watch and the wildlings might very well be the best we’ve seen. At the very least,… »7/08/15 2:39am7/08/15 2:39am

Arnold Somehow Saves Terminator Genisys From Being A Total Disaster

Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again playing a machine cloaked in human skin in Terminator Genisys, but now he’s the most human thing in a plastic movie. Arnie’s trademark grimace looks rough around the edges, like a slab of petrified wood after years of erosion. In a movie that’s basically shitty comfort food, the… »7/01/15 1:08pm7/01/15 1:08pm

Funny video turns the worst Game of Thrones character into a sweetheart

It takes a maesterful edit of Game of Thrones to turn Ramsay Bolton, the cruelest and most sadistic character on the show, into the kindest man in Westeros but man, they somehow did the impossible. Watch the hilarious video below to see how out of context Ramsay is actually a real sweetheart. He does so many nice… »6/17/15 4:02am6/17/15 4:02am

Does the Climate Science in Game of Thrones Make Sense?

The climate has been a persistent theme of Game of Thrones ever since Ned Stark (remember him?) told us “winter is coming” back at the start of season one. The Warden of the North was referring, of course, to the anticipated shift in Westerosi weather from a long summer to a brutal winter that can last for many years. »6/16/15 3:30am6/16/15 3:30am

A Complete Guide To The Mythical History Of Westeros

Long before the events of Game of Thrones and George R. R. Martin’s fantasy books, Westeros was home to magic and strange, sinister creatures.

On Game Of Thrones, Remaining True To Yourself Is The Worst Lie Of All

A few characters face terrible choices in this week’s Game of Thrones. They pretty much all choose expediency over principle. In the midst of all this, one character says these choices should be easy as long as you remain true to yourself. But that’s the most insidious lie of all. Spoilers ahead... »6/08/15 12:46pm6/08/15 12:46pm

One Thing the Game of Thrones TV Show Does So Much Better Than the Books

As an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, the Game of Thrones TV series will always be compared to its source material. Given how beloved the books are, the show can usually only match them, more often falling short. But there’s one way that the show is kicking the books’… »6/02/15 3:48pm6/02/15 3:48pm

On Game Of Thrones, Recruiting Followers Is Hard...Unless You're A Wight

Last night’s Game of Thrones was a welcome return to form. It was also a weirdly structured episode: Half a series of vignettes about faith and learning to read people, and half a rip-roaring apocalyptic action movie. But it was all tied together by the contrast between single-minded zombies and undependable humans. »6/01/15 12:01pm6/01/15 12:01pm

Graph: Which Game of Thrones episode corresponds to which book chapter

This is God’s work. Or at the very least, the work of a Grand Maester. Joeltronics made this very useful graph that shows which episode of Game of Thrones the TV show corresponds to which chapter and which book in the A Song of Ice and Fire books (aka the Game of Thrones books). That way you know what’s been shown… »5/18/15 3:05am5/18/15 3:05am
