Spiderman is a different sort of film entirely. Not to discount that the character is already pretty well burned into the subconscious of the entire nation. Sam Raimi is an excellent director (generally. I can't fathom "For Love of the Game" though) which didn't hurt either. One thing I respect about this film is the fact that Thor is not as well known a character by any means but audiences and reviewers have still responded well to it. I find it on par with Ironman 1 as well, a film I enjoyed.

Great movie. I should re-watch it again soon myself.

A lot. Think I go terrorizing ignorant peasant villages just for virgins to sacrifice and livestock to eat?

Sorry was kind of drunk when I finished this yesterday. It should be 3 and a half out of 6 beers.

Thanks. It's worth checking out. And it does kind of make me wish I owned a beaver hand puppet of my very own.

Believe me Brutus, I only went because I could go for free. I wasn't about to pay for this.

I agree with the Captain. It's stretches the bounds of what can happen but not by any means to the point of absurdity.

Thank you. I definitely recommend seeing this in the theater. Odd crowd. There were actually a goodly number of children present. In a very strange abstract way you can kind of see the family film elements in it though.

Yeah it was. Hopefully they'll make up for it by portraying Dany and Drogo's relationship later on more akin to how it became in the books, strangely affectionate given the harshness of Dothraki life. I appreciated that contrast in the book.

Excellent introduction to the world Achilles. I would like to make a couple notes on some things. First of all Rickon is in the pilot. He's that boy hanging around that doesn't have any speaking lines. I think we only see him in the archery scene and when the Starks are being introduced and Robert ruffles his hair.

If you look at some of the notes regarding the show, they talk about the necessity of aging Rickon up to 6. They did the same with Bran (8 in the book, 10 in the show) and I believe Arya as well. (though I can't locate the exact age change).

I agree that the casting for the most part is excellent. My jury is out on there Sansa for now but I do like Lena Heady as Cersei quite a bit. The only one I did not like at all was the choice for Theon. I found that actor obnoxious. I know Theon is kind of obnoxious but I felt it was overdone. I feel like in general in the book Theon is less obnoxious and more easy going with a sense of entitlement. He doesn't harass Jon to be a dick per se, but because by virtue of birth he views himself as Jon's superior. I think that distinction was lost.

That aside though the first episode kind of blew my mind. I love the opening credits especially the theme which kind of reminds me of the music they often used on Firefly.

Raymar Royce being denied his moment of heroism did kind of bother me as well, but you have to make sacrifices. Like with LOTR I feel this is being adapted is well as is humanly possible. The show has thus far in it's admittedly short life far exceeded my expectations. And yes gotta love the boobies.
