The City Strip #176 – Game On

Friday, April 4th, 2014

City of Films Gang 1

I don’t know if you folks know this or not, but Game of Thrones returns this coming Sunday, it’s a little show you may have heard of.  All of us here at COF watch it, we think it’s alright.  Ahem.  OK We love it!  As great as last night’s Walking Dead season finale was, everything else on TV can pop off – GoT is king!  This week’s City Strip is influenced by a certain fan favorite character on GoT, can you guess who?

I found it lovely and sweet, so we hope you enjoy it.  Check out The City Strip #176 – Game On

Weekend Preview: Once Again, GAME OF THRONES Takes Over the Internet and Your Life

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014


Welcome to the weekend preview everyone, check out what’s happening this weekend and decide what you’re going to do.  The City Strip will be up on Monday, catch up on all the comics here.  Follow us on Twitter and Facebook because my mom says those are cool.

Captain America: The Winter SoldierRT (92%)Trailer

I tried to make a winter pun for the title of this post for a few minutes before realizing GoT deserved better.  The reviews are in for Captain America and people love it, saying it’s the best Marvel movie to date too!  I don’t know if it can get better than Iron Man 3, but good on them for trying.  It seems Marvel has found a way to tell a good story and pull off great action all while having smug characters deliver funny lines; the way super hero movies should be if you ask me.  Maybe not Batman so much, he should brood as much as possible.

Limited Releases: Under the Skin, Frankie & Alice, Dom Hemingway

TV Notables:

Hannibal (Friday, NBC) – Kevin and I were texting like little girls last week, gushing about this show.  It’s the best looking show on TV is on takeaway from that conversation; another is that not enough people watch it yet and it deserves so much attention.  It’s not just the look, it’s the great writing and cast.  I wouldn’t change a thing about this show, I trust they know what they are doing every week and that’s rare.

WrestleMania (Sunday, PPV) – You know you’re old when you watched WrestleMania VI, and now they’re up to XXX.  Good for them, and tanning studios.

Shameless (Sunday, Showtime) – The other great show on TV is becoming more and more popular each season, and rightfully so.  These episodes this season are full of non-stop holy sh*t moments and hilarity.  It’s the season finale, enjoy.

Game of Thrones (Sunday, HBO) – Season 4 of the fantasy series begins; the unforgiven brutality has definitely changed how people watch the series (and TV in general) – don’t have favorite characters is one point of advice.  Ryan is caught up on the books and says a lot of “crazy things” should happen this season if they use the material.  What say you Mother of Dragons?

Fun With Short Films – A Tale of Benjen Stark

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

Fun With Short Films!

With summer officially ending yesterday I found it fitting that my review this week focused on a Game of Thrones fan fiction – ‘Winter is Coming’ friends. While I generally tend to steer clear of fan fiction, I made an exception in this case.

A Tale of Benjen Stark is set north of the wall as as the title character is out on a ranging mission. In a familiar scene, Benjen stumbles across a Wildling camp massacred. The production value is rather high and the limited dialogue is a benefit. Avoiding a lot of conversation can hide flawed acting and in this instance really allows the viewer to focus on the visuals. The production value of this fan fiction is rather high. Without giving too much away, not a lot of story progresses here. Again, this is another good thing as it doesn’t create any inaccuracies with the plot that has existed or the plot that is yet to come.

Created by Benjamin Von Wong, A Tale of Benjen Stark clocks in at approximately 6 minutes. If you don’t enjoy fan fiction, well then you may want to take a pass on this. If you can like it for what it is, this is worth a look! Check it out after the jump!


What I’ve Been Watching – Hodor!

What I've Been Watching

Summer is coming.

With that being said, there is still a ton of good movies and television to watch. Who needs the Sun right? Well while I mention the word “good”, it doesn’t exactly mean that what I have been watching is good. Just remember, don’t judge me too harshly.

1. Game of Thrones
I am sure you gathered this was coming from the title, and the banner image, and the fact that some of the most talked about television involves this show. So many videos involving The Rains of Castamere episode have gone viral. With good cause of course. It was hard hitting, it was gut wrenching, it was everything that is great and tragic about television. (more…)
