Joaquin Phoenix
Joaquin Phoenix's performance in The Master is undoubtedly one of the best (if not the best) of the year. But he could care less about whether or not his performance was "Oscar-worthy." The actor recently said that he doesn't believe in the Academy Awards and that he does not want the gold statue. Also, Lena Dunham announced the official return date of...

Emmy Nominations for 2012 are In!

Emmy Award
It used to be that winning an Emmy was considered sub-Oscar, but now that television is getting to be on similar artistic footing as cinema, it's surprising that winning one still isn't that great an accomplishment. Perhaps it's because of the stodgy and repetitive picks of their academy. Here's the full list of their 2012 nominations :

Game of Thrones: Season 2 Episode 7: A Man Without Honor – TV Review

Not so happy Mothers Day
The end is near for season two of Game of Thrones. This week's episode begged the question, who is a “Man Without Honor?" On this show, there's more than enough devious deeds to go around. Both men and women have plenty of skeletons in their closets. Is it Jaime for his nonchalant attitude towards killing and incest? Or is it Theon for his betrayal and...

Game of Thrones: Season 2 Episode 3: What Is Dead May Never Die - TV Review...

Published by

Peter Dinklage Game of Thrones
The Game of Thrones story is really starting to gather steam, with several chess pieces moving closer and closer to a cataclysmic collision of minds and matter. The tone in Season 2 has been a little starker than in Season 1, and it manages to do that while feature fewer Starks! As always, I am low on patience and high on anticipation for Episode 4 next week.

Game Of Thrones: Season 2 Episode 2: The Night Lands - TV Review

Published by

game of thrones the night lands
This second season of Game of Thrones has journeyed on like a bullet train capitalizing on its maiden voyage. There are still hordes of new characters and places, but the pacing needs less introduction and backdrop. It becomes less about what is Westeros and more about what happens in Westeros – which, as it turns out, is a collection of fascinating,...

"To the Point" is a bi-monthly column about the world of film from our own Damon Houx.  He may say things you don't agree with--and that's sort of the point. Recently The Oatmeal did a cartoon about a guy wanting to watch Game of Thrones, and finding it impossible to do so unless he pirated a copy. Alas, this was printed a mere two weeks before the DVD and Blu-ray box set...

In "Game of Thrones: The Wolf and the Lion" (Episode 5), the show remains as superlative as ever in its script, cinematography, and character development, but now there are sharp twists and turns in a momentously compelling plot.
