6 thoughts on “The Nerve of Jason Bourne’s Killing Joke”
I would definitely like to start off with saying that I have never watched, read, or really paid attention to Game of Thrones all that I really know is there is a pretty blonde chick that has something to do with dragons and a weird spoiled kid that is apparently pure evil. I am not saying that I’m not interested in the show but like you guys(and gals) said it is very intimidating to people that would like to start watching it because it is such a big thing. So I think that if they want to do something new with the franchise they should either do something like Adonis said(I think he is the one who said it) and kind of hobbit it by making movies/a new show that is more of a prequel and you can watch even if you haven’t seen the show or maybe just make some sort of reboot of the whole thing in movie form, but like I said I’ve don’t know much so who am I to say. Also Jon I watch Sing Street and you were right it was a very good movie although I don’t think it struck me the same way as you I still very much enjoyed it and Adonis I am SO glad my complement for last week made you not hate me lol, I hope you all have a great week.
I’m starting to think Kyle is not really Maria’s sister…if you listen closely, you’ll notice that Kyle doesn’t have a spanish accent. Anyway for a new Game of Thrones movie, I want to see a spinoff that details the doom of Valyria, but before it happens. We’d see what Valyria was really like before it all went to hell.
Do a game of thrones that gives us more SAND SNAKES! Said no one ever. Actually, I would be quite interested in the Blackfire Rebellion becoming a spinoff series, as Jon sort of mentioned super fast. Either that or Brandon the Builder.
Nerve was alright. The trailer, though, is just terrible. It walks you through literally every single plot point of the movie.
Where the blazes is Sam Noland?
Thank you Jon and Adonis for the name recommendation. I haven’t seen Game of Thrones, but I thought I’d pitch a movie because why not. So I’m not well versed in the Game of Thrones universe, but I think they should take the plot to a successful comic book sequel, tweak it a bit, and call it original. Seemed to work for Adonis. #kickass3
