V for Vendetta (2005)

“It dangles the possibility of an extreme group taking over and placing anyone of certain ethnicities, religions, sexual orientation, and immigrant status into concentration camps which, thanks to the current presidential election cycle, doesn’t seem that farfetched at the moment.”

Game of Thrones: One Word . . . EPIC. (Recap S6: Finale)

This finale was like my jeans after Thanksgiving dinner, bursting at the seams with good stuff (and not so good stuff), but super satisfying. Long-held theories confirmed? Sure!

Game of Thrones: Every Hound Has Its Day (S6: Ep 7)
