I’ve been updating my profile on Linked In and noticed there are a few other places I need to update, so here’s a few that need likes/endorsements/connections etc!
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR STAR WARS?
A DOZEN IDEAS TO REVATILISE THE FRANCHISE, GET IT BACK ON TRACK AND MAKE IT FUN AGAIN!
Lucasfilm has been wrecking Star wars, or rather Kathleen Kennedy’s Political/Feminist agenda has. But all is not quite lost; there is a spark of hope out there.
The whole concept behind it was good versus evil and overcoming that evil. That arises out of despair and anguish like a Phoenix rising from the ashes.
That simple premise has been forgotten by KK and her cronies. THAT is why there has been a fan rebellion and both Last Jedi and Solo were complete failures.
With the ‘Original Trilogy’ there were several factors crucial to its success- strong characters male and female- though they were few/ the Hero’s Journey, although I wasn’t aware of the story structure at the time/allusions to the Second World War, the Roman Empire, the seven Samurai, even Laurel and Hardy with the droids. We even get a David vs Goliath with Luke taking on the Death Star in his X-Wing.
These latest ones lack consistency- like runny porridge, you know it’s been rushed and not cooked properly. Force Awakens/Lost Jedi/Solo have been flawed by bad writing, inconsistent direction, bureaucratic interference and micro management.
Paradoxically, Rebels and Rogue One have been flawless, well-written and well made. “Rebellions are made on Hope” Jyn said, quoting Cassian. So here we go- A dozen ideas-
FUN FACTOID NO.1- NOODLES!
Think I might need to spice the blog up a bit. So one thing I think I might do each week is try to find something to rave or rant about. This Week-
Maybe I listen too much to Steve Wrights Radio 2 show, or watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, but I think one thing I would find difficult to give up if there’s ever an Alien Invasion or Zombie Apocalypse, or I somehow find myself stranded on a Desert Island- is noodles. Why- I don’t know, I had some for tea the other day, the Chicken variety, and it’s something I thought of. The Spicy stir-fry is awesome, but you need plenty of water/juice to wash it down with.
Anyway, just something I thought I’d share!
WARNING- SERIES 6 SPOILERS AND 7 THEORIES AHEAD!!
GoTh is back- but I’ve been way behind in blogposts and videos lately, so there won’t be a dvd review of series 6, or a ’12 jaw-dropping moments’-style write up, though a few might make it into this ramble.
Anyway, Tiglet joined the Night Watch and came up with Five Reasons he’s excited about it as well-
Will The Hound meet Arya Stark again?
He came back in style last season and looks like he’s joining with Thoros and Dondarrion. Now Arya’s avenged the Red Wedding (another jaw-dropper!) So will they meet up again, now she’s working on her To-Kill-list?
Queen Cersei cracking down?
She wiped out The High Sparrow and probably most of his Religious order, but there’s probably a few more scattered about. She’s made so many enemies though, will House Lannister stand alone?
Jon Snow’s true parentage.
Oh my Geeky Goddess- what a twist. Bran knows, but he’s got to get past the Wall and back to Winterfell pronto- will he make it? Probably not something to send by Raven!
Dragons back in Westeros!
It’s become something of a thing for the series to end with a Dragon-shot, but series 6 outdid them all. Daenerys also had so many moments- Walking out of the flames of the Dosh Kaleen, riding Drogon, setting slave fleet on fire and the final scene, leading the Allied Targaryen fleet, Dragon Banners leading the Khalasar to Westeros, her allies alongside. But where will they land? In Dance of Dragons, the Golden Company got scattered all over the Stormlands, but there’s a rumour she’s heading North, but wherever she ends up, get ready for War!
Will the Night King and the Whitewalkers reach the Wall?
There was something in the novels about a Horn that might have the power to break the Wall. Benjen Stark (Coldhands in the books) mentioned there’s spells protecting the Wall, but what if they fail? It’s clear that it’s all crashing together- will Daenerys vision of a Throne room in ruins and covered in snow come true???
So there are a few questions that could get answered in the seventh series, plus a few of my own theories about how it may go.
We’ll just have to watch with baited breath-
Winter has come and The Long Night is falling-
GAME OF THRONES SERIES 7!
