I didn’t watch the final season of Game of Thrones since I don’t have HBO. I wish I could watch it on TV like everyone else but since I can’t afford HBO, I just buy all the seasons on DVD/BluRay. I do have all 7 seasons on DVD/BluRay. I have the first 6 seasons on DVD and season 7 on BluRay but I will get the final season which is Season 8 on BluRay when it comes out for sure.
Anyhow, I’m not upset that the show “Game of Thrones” has ended on TV. That’s on TV but for the big screen? Over the years there have always been talks of a big screen “Game of Thrones” movie so don’t rule that out yet, folks. Sure, George R.R. Martin didn’t finish the sixth book “The Winds of Winter” yet so HBO didn’t make it in time to adapt “The Winds of Winter” book into the show. I’m thinking though that “The Winds of Winter” which is book six could get made into a big screen movie for Hollywood.
Over thee years, there were other hit TV shows that got made into big screen movies especially shows like “Star Trek”, “Sex In the City”, “Mission Impossible”, “The Addams Family”, “The A-Team”, “The Dukes of Hazzard”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “The Muppets”, “The X-Files” and the list goes on.
Could the same happen for “Game of Thrones”??? Yes, absolutely. I haven’t seen the final episode of “GOT” yet but I’m sure the ending left open for more in the future. The “Game of Thrones” movie may not happen right away ’cause I hear the writers for “Game of Thrones” will be writing their Star Wars trilogy next so a “Game of Thrones” movie may take a while. I can see the cast and crew of “Game of Thrones” reuniting for a big screen movie years from now. We’ll have to wait until George finishes book 6 and then maybe they’ll make it into a movie. That’s probably what’s gonna happen.
I do love “Game of Thrones”, though. Always did. I’ve been with them since the beginning and still a loyal fan now. I didn’t watch the final season yet so I will wait for the BluRay release which could come out later this year hopefully.
Well this is interesting. The creators of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” David Benioff and DB Weiss brought us the hit TV series, now we know what they’ll be up to next since they are ending the series at Season 8 next year. Looks like the two GOT creators will be moving on to write a new Star Wars series ’cause Lucasfilm hired them to do just that.
Game of Thrones writers doing Star Wars… does that now mean the new series will be R rated? Also full of sex, incest scenes and killing off characters that people like? I wouldn’t be surprised…
… all joking aside, I think this is interesting, though. You can expect “Game of Thrones” stars to star in their Star Wars films. I would like to see Emilia Clarke in a Star Wars film ’cause that would be cool and Peter Dinklage would be cool too.
Now you can see why the GOT’s cast and crew wants to be done with GOT’s so they can move on to other projects and this is exactly it. These two guys Benioff and Weiss spent half of their lives working on GOT and looks like they’ll spent the next decade or so working on Star Wars.
So we got the original series still going on, SW: Rogue One, SOLO: A Star Wars movie coming this year, the new Rian Johnson SW’s trilogy been announced and now this. I know this may seem weird, but George Lucas gave Disney the permission to make as many Star Wars films as they wanted so that’s exactly what they’re doing. Some are already fed up with all this, but Star Wars is a huge universe so you can create as much stories as possible. If all the Star Wars books can do this then why can’t the movies?
I think Disney is a doing a good job with Star Wars ’cause I’m liking everything they’re doing. “Rogue One” was good and Ron Howard’s “Solo” movie looks awesome. I used to like Star Trek more than Star Wars but I’m not liking the new Star Trek movies at all. I guess, I like Star Wars a lot more than Star Trek now.
It should have been no surprise to you that Disney will be interested in the Game of Thrones creators ’cause why? Watch the “Game of Thrones” show yourself. GOT’s is like Star Wars almost. Think about it, right?
I’ve watched “Game of Thrones – Season 7” over the weekend, and I thought it was the best season in the series so far. Some big shockers this season. I watched the season pretty quick ’cause there were only 7 episodes this season instead of the usual 10. I won’t reveal big spoilers of Season 7, of course. You probably already know everything that happened this Season since spoilers are a huge problem on the internets anyways, lol.
Anyways, maybe it is a good time to end “Game of Thrones” on HBO ’cause why? Many of the series actors and actresses are starting to become big movie stars. They’re becoming bigger than the show itself… most notably actors such as Jason Momoa (who played Drogo in the first season), Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage. Those three have been starring in some pretty big movies on the big screen lately. There are other actors in the series who have been getting some pretty big movie roles lately. For example, the guy who plays Jaime Lannister who goes by the name of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau can be seen in movies like “Oblivion” and “Gods of Egypt”, the woman who plays Brienne Maid of Tarth who goes by the name of Gwendoline Christie can be seen as Cpt. Phasma in Star Wars “7 & 8”, the guy who plays Little Finger whose real name is Aidan Gillan can be seen in “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”, Sansa Stark whose real name is Sophie Turner was Jean Grey in “X-Men: Apocalypse” and I’m sure you’ll recognize GOT stars in other films too.
It loos like the actors in the cast want to move on to other projects. The show helped the actors & actresses make a name for themselves. You won’t miss the cast at all as they’ll always be around.
Anyhow, I can’t see GOT ending for good. Maybe they’ll do a reunion season sometime in the future or a big screen movie. I prefer a big screen movie ’cause there has been a lot of talk of a GOT featured film over the years… I can see that happening. It wasn’t the first time big TV shows got turned into big screen movies most notably: “Star Trek”, “Sex In the City”, “Mission Impossible”, “The A-Team”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “The X-Files” and many others. That can happen with Game of Thrones too. A big screen “Game of Thrones” movie would be cool.
GOT’s is a great series, though. I’ve been with them from the very beginning and I still watch. Looking forward to the final season which we won’t see until next year. Now if only George R.R. Martin would hurry up and release book 6 already!!!
Well HBO announced when the final Season of “Game of Thrones” which will be Season 8 to be premiered sometime in 2019. No official release date confirmed yet, but I believe there is a pretty good reason for that. They want to give George R. R. Martin more time to finish up Song of Ice and Fire – Book 6 “The Winds of Winter” so I think that book is probably gonna come out sometime this year.
HBO wants to give George some time to finish up the book, release it, give fans some time to read it and the writers can quickly write the scripts for 10 episodes before filming begins. They have plenty of time to get it all done. The book will definitely be out before the final season and I can’t wait.
I’m a HUGE fan of the books and the HBO TV series. I’ve read all the books so far and saw all the seasons except for Season 7 which I’m about to start this weekend. I have Season 7 on BluRay.
Yeah, George R. R. Martin is a pretty liberal guy politically and the actors of the show are all liberals but who cares. They’re still good books and good shows. I don’t care about the creators political views. I try to keep politics and entertainment separate as best as possible. I don’t live in a bubble like most conservatives.
When George releases “The Winds of Winter” this year, you can betcha I’ll go to Barnes and Noble to pick up a copy right away. I bought book 5 “A Dance With Dragons” as soon as it came out. When will “The Winds of Winter” finally come out? Hopefully it’ll come out in the Spring/Summer time. I’m probably gonna end up re-reading all the Song of Ice and Fire books before it comes out.
This is still a good series. I’m still loyal to “Game of Thrones”. Never gave up on them. It’s disappointing that HBO wants to end GOT at Season 8, but everybody the cast and crew probably wants to move on and I can’t blame them. They spent half of their lives working on this show.
People are still begging George R.R. Martin to release book 6 of the Game of Thrones book series titled, the “Winds of Winter”. Fans and critics are complaining that George is taking way too long.
Well I’d say, he should take as long as he takes! I give a lot of kudos to George for taking his time because maybe he wants the next book to be really good? I’ve read all the books so far and saw all the seasons of the TV show. Well, I still haven’t seen GOT “Season 5” yet which will come out on DVD/BluRay later this year.
I’m still a huge GOT fanatic and I can’t wait for the next book but I’m being patient. Other people should be patient too. Let him make it a really good one. He just wants to take his time with it.
The thing with writing books is writers don’t finish stories just because their fans want them to finish it. The story itself finishes on its own. It’s all up to the story on whether it wants to end or not. Just be patient and George will be done with the book whenever he’s ready to be done.
Many fans of “Game of Thrones” have complained that the show has gone overboard with the sex scenes of the show which is true. I too believe HBO has over done it with the sex scenes. There are not only sex scenes with hetero couples but there are plenty of gay sex scenes in a few seasons as well. That’s all the show has ever been lately… sex, sex, sex. Naked women all over.
Emilia decided that she finally had it and now she’s speaking out about it.
While she does bring up some good points and I agree with her but didn’t she just do a nude scene for her Broadway play, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”???? Does this make her a hypocrite a little bit?
I do agree that GOT should tone it down on the sex, though but they won’t. They gotta keep their fan base somehow.
Season 5 looks pretty good! I can’t watch it ’cause I don’t have HBO anymore. Got rid of it. I just wait for all the seasons to come out on DVD.
I still haven’t even seen Season 4 yet but that will be coming out on DVD sometime at the end of Feb. so I’ll get it then.
The song in the trailer is David Bowie’s “Heroes” but it’s not David Bowie himself singing. It’s a band called TV On the Radio doing a cover of it.
I love GOT, though. Of course, the books are WAY better.
Some of you may know that I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. Love the books and love the TV show. Some of you know that writer, George R.R. Martin is not afraid to kill off characters that everybody likes.
Well, George warns fans that he plans on killing off more important characters for future “Song of Ice and Fire” novels. This probably means that he might plan on killing off important characters like Tyrion, Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Littlefinger, or even The Hound.
I know GOT fans are getting pissed and frustrated that George takes forever to finish the next book but let him take his time. The less time he takes, the better the stories get. Sometimes, less is always more when writing stories.
I have all the GOT books so far and I have the first 3 seasons on DVD so I’m a huge fan of this franchise, indeed. I haven’t seen GOT “Season 4” ’cause I don’t have HBO anymore and I’m just waiting for Season 4 to come out on DVD.
I love this franchise so much, though. The stories are addicting and so are the characters. If you’re not into “GOT’s” yet, what are you waiting for?
I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. Love the books but HBO could do a better job with the show. Honestly, I still am a fan of the TV show, I just wish they would improve the writing. I don’t like how the TV show is leaving a lot of stuff out and changing the story around, altering characters. I think the books are way better.
I’m looking forward to the next Thrones book, though. Which would be book 6 of the Song of Ice and Fire series: “Winds of Winter”.
George R.R. Martin released a chapter from the book which I haven’t read yet but will get around to it. The cover of the next book have been released too:
I’m not sure when the book is coming out ’cause the article didn’t say of a release date but I’m sure the book will come out sometime later this year.
Seriously… if you like the TV show on HBO, I’d suggest you read the books ’cause like I said, the books are way better. It’s way more intense and unpredictable than the show.
Usually George takes a long time in between books but I think he’s in a hurry now ’cause of the show. He doesn’t want to keep HBO waiting for the next book.
This came up in my facebook newsfeed so I decided to share it. This meme about Obama is funny stuff. So true.
President Obama reminds me of King Joffrey in so many ways… they’re both are pretty much alike. You know how in the “Game of Thrones” TV show that Joffrey is a corrupt king who everyone hates? No wonder “Game of Thrones” is one of Obama’s favorite shows ’cause that show is probably a reminder of himself of how he treats America. Hillary would be like Queen Cersei.
