He may be accused of killing the king, but Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister is definitely the king of the biggest TV show on earth. Firstly, the character itself is outstanding. Couple it with Dinklage’s portrayal of it and you reach nirvana. In the fourth season of Game of Thrones, Tyrion manages to pull off the monologue of television’s history. Be it belittling his own brother Jamie (his last friend) or pissing off Cersie and Shae in a single line, he does it with utmost brevity.

 1. Kill two birds with one stone:

“Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores!” 

 2. On biased trial:

I will not give my life for Joffrey’s murder and I know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat.”

3. To Oberyn Martell on justice in King’s Landling:

“If you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place.”

4. To Tywin Lannister in trial:

“I’m guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I’m guilty of being a dwarf.”

5. To Jamie on partiality:

“You’re the golden son. You can kill a king, lose a hand, f–k your own sister, you’ll always be the golden son.”

6. On Joffrey’s murder:

“Say what you will of Cersei, she loves her children. She is the only one I’m certain had nothing to do with this murder, which makes it unique as King’s Landing murders go.”

7. To Bronn:

“Why are you sorry? Because you’re an evil bastard with no conscience and no heart? That’s what I liked about you in the first place.”

8. On Cousin Orson:

“Laughing at another person’s misery was the only thing that made me feel like everyone else.” 

9. On the laws of Gods:

“Trial by combat, deciding a man’s guilt or innocence in the eyes of the gods by having two other men hack each other to pieces. It tells you something about the gods.”

10. On the trail setup:

“I know the whole bloody country thinks I’m guilty. I know that one of my three judges has wished me dead more times than I can count and that judge is my father.”

Top 10 dialogues of Game of Thrones Season 4

maxresdefault (1)

Peter Dinklage’s monologue in the episode The Laws of Gods and Men was his only appearance in the entire episode, but he stole the whole of it. The fourth season of Game of Thrones had an endless array of cheesy liners that left others on the screen dumbfounded. Though we had little of Lord Varys in this season, Little Finger elevated himself to higher diabolical standards. Tyrion Lannister remains the best (half)man with the best words.

1. “I did not do it. I did not kill Joffrey, but I wish that I had. Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores!” – Tyrion Lannister

2. “I will not give my life for Joffrey’s murder and I know I’ll get no justice here, so I will let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat.” – Tyrion Lannister

3. “You’re the golden son. You can kill a king, lose a hand, f–k your own sister, you’ll always be the golden son.” - Tyrion Lannister

4. “In a better world, one where love can overcome strength and duty, you might have been my child. But we don’t live in that world. And you are more beautiful than she ever was.” - Petyr Baelish aka Little Finger

5. “I will answer injustice with justice” – Daenerys Targaryen

6. “Given the opportunity what do we do to those who’ve hurt the ones we love?” - Petyr Baelish aka Little Finger

7. “No one weeps for spiders or whores.” – Varys

8. “People die at their dinner tables. They die in their beds. They die squatting over their chamber pots. Everybody dies sooner or later. And don’t worry about your death. Worry about your life. Take charge of your life for as long as it lasts.” — Petyr Baelish aka Little Finger

9. “I will not become a page in someone else’s history book.” – Stannis Baratheon

 10. ” Elia Martell of Dorne, You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children” – Oberyn Martell

Top 10 movies of 2012

2012postercollage-thumb-620xauto-48632

2012 had a host of anticipated films. Almost all of them turned into blockbusters. There are easily more than 20 awesome movies. It’s been a puzzle picking the top 10.

 1. The Avengers

the-avengers1-500x292

Give me Iron Man or Thor alone and I’ll watch the movie again and again. But if you give me both of them in a single movie that too with Captain America, Hulk and the beautiful Scarlet Johansson, I’ll watch it everyday. The Avengers was the first notable movie to feature standalone superheroes together, and we jumped on it.

2. The Dark Knight Rises 

6449196-1344368254384

The culmination of the epic The Dark Knight trilogy was definitely the most awaited movie of 2012. The capped crusader returning on screen after 4 years with both Chris’s (Nolan and Bale) confirming it their last ride made it so. The Dark Knight Rises was an epic indeed. Christian Bale is the best Batman.

3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I have no words for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I might just watch it on mute and still won’t be able to give justice to its picturesque visuals. Besides, it has a hell of a story and cast.

4. The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is the adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s bestseller of the same name. The pretty Jennifer Lawrence is the heart and soul of this dystopian film.

5. Skyfall

The 50th anniversary of James Bond is called Skyfall. It is definitely style to its epitome. No wonder it made more money than The Dark Knight Rises.

6. Men in Black 3

8931b3965a98d8119d36527afd754de2

Ten years after MIB2, Will Smith returned with Men In Black 3. This man does not age. The movie was one of the funniest of 2012. Only Smith can pull off such characters.

7. Argo

Argo introduced a new kind of cinema created by Ben Affleck. Its superb script and supreme direction are lessons in cinema. The Oscar wanted this movie.

8. Ted

Seth Macfarlane’s Ted is the best R-rated comedy next to The Hangover. It’s hilarious and yes,there’s a sequel coming.

9. Madagascar 3

Madagascar 3 is easily the best animation movie till 2012. Its colourful never-ending 3D is an experience you cannot afford to miss.

10. Silver Linings Playbook

David O Russel’s Silver Linings Playbook is his life’s best work. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence strike a brilliant chemistry to make this film a must watch.

Review: Edge of Tomorrow is Tom Cruise’s manifestation led sci-fi blockbuster

edge-tomorrow-crui_2925098b

Live…Die…Repeat. The Repeat part is the ultimate seduction in Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow. The last film with looping time we saw was Source Code. This is obviously the biggest canvas for these kinds of stories. Edge of Tomorrow is a film which could only be ridden by Cruise owing his enviable filmography .

Unlike his typical role, Tom plays a hapless Major William Cage who ends up as a soldier in the invasion of alien creatures called Mimics. He kills a creature but succumbs himself with the creature’s blood all over his face, only to wake up again at the start of the day, as a soldier again. One fine repeat of the day in the war, he finds our pretty Emily Blunt. Blunt plays Rita Vrataski, the famous hero in the invasion of Verdun. She believes in Cage’s time looping story, which others take as tales, by confessing that she too had this power during her stint at Verdun. Together they set out to win the war with Cage’s “cheat code”.

Tom Cruise just doesn’t age. He is too awesome even if his character is not his cliché confident type. Emily Blunt is sublime but is nothing more than a sidekick. Doug Liman does superb as a director. There are some hilarious death scenes. Bill Paxton (Master Sergeant Farell) and Brendan Glesson (General Brigham) are a treat. Editor James Herbert has a very important role in this looping story. He fares just well. There is a total of more than a couple of minutes of the film which should have been deleted. The cinematography is just majestic.

Edge of Tomorrow is definitely a stereotype Tom Cruise film. The best part is that the action never ceases. You might wanna sleep over some editing follies to enjoy this one.

Review: Rise of an Empire sails victorious without the winds of comparisons

Image

It begins as a whisper. Well, it really does! And it accelerates to battle cries in a blink. 300: Rise of an Empire is the gratification to the lust of Zack Synder’s 2007 cult blockbuster 300. It’s less of a sequel and more of a side-quel. This time there will be blood in the water, oh wait! There’s fire as well!

Leonidas and his 300 are at war with Xerxes’ infinite army. Rise of an Empire is what unfurls parallel to this. Greek general Themistokles, Sullivan Staplelton, leads the Greek’s slender navy against Xerxes’ emphatic navy. Eva Green’s Artemisia leads the Persian navy expecting a cake walk. Then there is thick blood in every inch of the screen. A list of ambitious commanders from Artemisia is tormented by Themistokles’ tactics only to scorch the erotic scene of the movie. Sullivan Stapleton is exceptional in his role, though he won’t garner many cheers due to the obvious comparisons with Gerrard Butler. Eva Green is the heart and soul of the film. She rides it, amps it at her will. Lena Headey has a miniscule role, but she manages her influence easily, after her skyrocketed fame after Game of Thrones. You get her when you want her onscreen.

Director Noam Murro has made an impact with his unique style. The visuals are realistic, brave and bold. The cinematography is fantastic. The story is fine but the screenplay could have been better.Rise of an Empire is quite convincing as a standalone thought, but the comparison with its predecessor may not quench the thirst of everyone especially since not many know about it being a side-quel. If you’d be a little lenient on comparisons you’d end up enjoying this massacre.
