DOES NOT MEAN THE BEST FILM. P.S. I am only 20 years old.
Game of Thrones: The Bells (2019)
Season 8 has been seriously underrated
I admit that season 7 and 8 have not been as perfect as previous seasons. But they have by no means ruined Game of Thrones. It's a shame people are jumping on the bandwagon of hating on game of thrones, and there has been an aura of negativity instead of people going in trying to enjoy it.
People saying the episode goes against character arcs:
Dany- she has always been obsessive and has the genes of a family infamous for insanity and violence. She has always done bad things or suggested bad things and has had to have her impulses checked. In this instance she had a split second to decide what to do, and with the paranoia and rejection she was facing and that she had lost those she trusted to advise her, her decision made sense. It's been obvious for so long and was even shown to us in season 2 in the house of the undying.
Jaime- it has not ruined his character arc to go back to cersei. This is game of thrones he's not going to just have some linear arc where he goes from good to bad. He is a good man but his bane is that he obsessed over Cersei. Always has. In most toxic relationships people go back to each other even though it's not right. I didn't want Jaime to die like that I admit, but it does make sense.
Also people complaining that dragon didn't get killed by the scorpions. I agree that it didn't make sense that dany didn't see the iron fleet in the last episode. They could have done that better. But the idea is clearly that rhaegal was just gliding unaware when he was killed. Completely different to drogon who was seeing the scorpions face on. Their aim did not get worse, and that is a ridiculous criticism personally.
Varys' execution was very well done, cleganebowl was brilliant, and the general cinematography was absolutely incredible. Also it had a common theme that there are blurred lines between good and bad and power-mongering always leads to more violence. No matter what.
People if you stopped trying to pick up on every minor plot hole or weak point and getting annoyed because it didn't occur just like you had envisioned in your head for the past 2 years, you might have actually enjoyed it.
I know I'd rather be on my side enjoying the end of a brilliant tv show than spending it being exhausting with constant negativity.
Game of Thrones: The Long Night (2019)
a counter to the criticism
The people giving this episode below 7 are just being petty and ridiculous
Firstly people complaining about Arya killing the night king and it not being Jon or Bran and saying it doesn't suit their arcs because their arcs have all been about the white walkers, but in the same sentence complain about realism. Those 2 characters still had very important roles throughout the series in stopping the night king.
Bran led the night king to where he knew he would die and made sure of that by warging into the ravens. He also gave Arya the dagger that would kill the night king and helped her and Sansa get rid of an incredibly real threat in littlefinger.
Jon was the one who told everyone about the threat of the white walkers, without him no army would have even been at Winterfell. He found out about dragon glass and Valyrian steel, he brought dany to Winterfell, he won the battle of the bastards and reunited the north. Even in the battle he and dany get him off viserion which is incredibly important. Yes I would have liked a Jon and night king duel but how predictable would that have been? Also why would the night king fight Jon snow when he can do what he did? Also he knows Jon is a very credible threat, he has seen him twice before.
I do understand the criticism of the Dothraki not having any weapons before the red woman turns up, an oversight. But do you think their pride would have allowed them not to charge? Have we ever seen the Dothraki in defensive formation? It wouldn't make sense. Also what says they didn't kill far more than how many of them died? Thus simple maths would show that it would have helped? Maybe they should have included a scene where their leader makes it clear they refuse to do anything but lead a charge, as we know the Dothraki are very prideful.
I do also understand the criticism of samwell not dying, they should have found another way for him to survive but the impact of watching Jon have to just walk past him was very impactful. But people complaining about the lighting, just turn up your brightness and stop being picky
However, this episode did contain so many brilliant moments:
- The death of lyanna, beric and especially Theon and Jorah were brilliant
- Grey worm sacrificing his men
- Aryas scene inside the library
- every scene in the crypts
- the cgi and special effects
- Ramin Djawadi and his perfect score
The reasons it wasn't a 10 like battle of the bastards and hardhome: -the fact that the main characters were fighting off hundreds of wights -Ghost being in the charge
- what happened to rhaegal?
- what were the Dothraki going to use as weapons?
That they didn't do a complete masterpiece like they so often do, does not mean that the episode wasn't good. Does not mean that game of thrones is ruined. Does not mean that the world is over.
People have a rewatch with an open mind and I think you'll be surprised :)
