You're killing me.

I assume GoT is like The Walking Dead - no character is off limits (except Rick and maybe Darryl) and don't expect anyone to survive a full season.

Kinda.
Anyway, I shouldn't throw stones. We are a season behind too, having caught up to that point via (gasp!) DVD.

We pay for HBO. It's bundled into my FiOS package and it's nice to have. The best part of it is I get access to the apps and can pull down any HBO show or series and just stream it to my TV. Over the summer I re-watched Band of Brothers and The Pacific. And, it gives us the chance to catch up on now on GoT.

Anyone here watch The Deuce? I'm trying to figure out if that is any good. I think generally HBO does a great job on their series so I'd be surprised if this was an exception.

Recommendation of a somewhat obscure indie film called The Big Sick. It's an autobiographical story of a Pakistani man who does stand up and meets a woman, falls in love with her, rejects her because his family won't accept her and then she gets sick and falls into a coma. Wackiness ensues. It's low key but pretty funny. Ray Romano and Holly Hunter play the girls parents. I believe it's based on the stars true relationship with his wife. Probably takes some artistic liberties. My wife and I rented it recently and we really enjoyed it. No action, nothing blows up, it's just the story. Good investment of time, though.

I'm seeing a lot of ads for a new release about Winston Churchill, Darkest Hour, and the Dunkirk issue where he makes his famous speech. It's due to release on Dec. 22nd. Anyone know more about this movie? I may break down and drive the 25 miles to my nearest theater if it is at all decent. I want to hear Winnie wax dramatic.

I was interested in that, too .. when it comes to cable.

It seems to be getting mixed reviews from critics. The consensus seems to be that Gary Oldman is terrific as Churchill, but the movie overall is nothing special.
Fire Alex Cora.

A friend and I plan to see it Xmas week. I've heard similar reviews as dad - Oldman is great but the movie is just ok.

I'm doing Star Wars Xmas day with the family. Anyone see it yet? No spoilers, please, but just curious if it's worth the outing. I'm going either way.

Inasmuch as the last Star Wars movie I saw was 40 years ago, I believe I'll be passing on this one. Heck, I still haven't seen the latest Godfather movie. And I'm not I even sure that I saw either of the first two, beginning to end.
