If anyone has any recommendations for any truly terrifying films (ideally more terror than cheap jump scares), let me know.
The truly terrifying ones are the real life stories.
I believe it was Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer that has scared me the most. If this is the one I'm thinking of, it has a super fucked up scene of the murder of a mother and daughter. I think I may have stopped watching around that point. Horror movies are my favorite, so I don't get terrified anymore with those - but real life shit? Yeah that's just hard to watch.

Maybe you'd like Hush. It's a good edge of your seat kind of movie. It is well done, but it didn't get me too much. A lot of other people seem to really like it though.

Old people really freak me out, so I liked The Taking of Deborah Morgan and The Visit.

Recently, I've watched The Void which is pretty Lovecraftian. I enjoyed the first half, but then there were so many tropes that I got a little bored. Also, Annabelle: Creation got me more than I thought it would. The other Annabelle movies were pretty shit so I didn't have high hopes, but there were some legitimately freaky moments.

The V/H/S movies are fun. OH! And I for some reason always forget this one, but The Invitation is one of my favorites. No jump scares from what I remember, just disturbing with a good pace.

I'm more upset that Meredith Grey slept with George O'Malley and ruined their friendship. George was my favorite.

Most dramas tend to get more ridiculous in order to keep interest, but I'm hooked so I'm sure I'll be fine with it turning into a full-blown soap opera if that's what happens.

Don't worry, the ridiculous stuff is coming. Along with with terribly, horribly sad things. Then massive shark jumping.
I already know about sad things thanks to all the fangirls online when it happened. But I kinda like sad things.

I've been binging Grey's Anatomy, which I have never watched before.
I love binging shows and figured since it has 13 seasons I would give it a try.

It is surprisingly good. Each episode has a theme about life or personal relationships. There is more focus on the surgical aspect than I originally thought there would be, but maybe that will start to shift as the show grows (I'm only in the second season). Most dramas tend to get more ridiculous in order to keep interest, but I'm hooked so I'm sure I'll be fine with it turning into a full-blown soap opera if that's what happens.

I don't care much for either Ellen Pompeo or Patrick Dempsey, and yet they have enough chemistry for me to like them together.

Okay, but I think everyone kinda knew about Jon and Dany. They're basically Ice and Fire. Plus, they're two big players, both attractive, and around the same age. You didn't have to know about any leaks to see that one coming.

I feel like I need to watch all those scenes with Arya, Sansa, and Littlefinger over again just to see if this resolution even makes sense.
It doesn't. Apparently a scene was taken out where Sansa goes to Bran asking for help and Bran tells her everything about Littlefinger.

So all that tension and the death threat between the two sisters was for real. Fucking awful.

i felt similarly.  i was satisfied that sansa and arya were both as smart and united as they ought to be, but i was was annoyed that the entirety of the winterfell plot was a season-long red herring.
Same. There was really no need for it. She could have charged him with murder and treason before going through all that bullshit.

I do enjoy things finally progressing, but over all it was pretty underwhelming. I'm sure next season will be interesting with the White Walkers now finally through the Wall.
But I miss the books. D&D are shit writers. The dialogue sucks. The characters are now super shallow and my favorites - Varys, Tyrion, and Littlefinger (RIP) are but a shadow of their former selves.

That episode sucked. These writers clearly don't know what they're doing without GRRM.

Also, in the books - there's a line that Arya would love to see Sansa again.
So no, people didn't forget their relationship. But the show is forgetting that they both grew up out of their stupid sibling rivalries.

Robb was killed precisely because he stopped being so noble. He married some hot nobody just because she had great tits, completely ignoring his pledge to the Freys, then before that he beheaded the lord of the Karstarks for some menial bullshit that his mother advised against entirely (reminder that this is literally the same thing Joffrey did). Robb was going down a path of "do whatever the fuck I want" and discovered that it actually doesn't work that way.
Because the Karstarks betrayed them and the noble thing to do is to behead traitors.
That wasn't a "do whatever the fuck I want" move. That was justice for treason. Just like Jon had the mutineers hanged and beheaded Janos Slynt. Which is the same thing Ned did.

Honestly, Rushy. Your idea of morals in this world is so fucking off. Who do you think the most moral person on the show is? Missandei? Do you think she'll win?

The next episode just leaked. It was good overall, and without spoiling anything, it confirms one of the more infamous leaks from last year. The biggest problem is Arya. Her stupid grudge against Sansa makes no sense, and neither does her continued creepy, threatening behavior.
Arya is being a stupid smug bitch this season. I'm glad Littlefinger is manipulating her.

We totally have a racism problem.  Just look at the amount of unarmed black people killed by cops for proof.

I don't want to go too far down a debunking BLM claims road, but black cops are more likely to shoot black men than white cops are.  So how does that fit your narrative?  Are these black cops so reified that they no longer have the agency to resist the systemic racism?
Not to mention the amount of black on black crime. It's fucking terrifying in my area.

I truly honestly believe it comes down to a class/culture thing. I really doubt most people genuinely fear someone based on their skin. I fear for my boyfriend's life whenever he's had to deliver pizza to the government housing in our area (they're not supposed to deliver there, but his last manager was a piece of shit).

And how do you even begin to talk about or rectify that problem without some people thinking you're racist?

The Red Wedding happened because Rob stopped being the "good guy", he made several immoral or just plain stupid mistakes in a row and effectively got himself killed. It doesn't go against the "good guy vibe" of the show.
Yes. It really really does. His immoral choice was marrying someone he wasn't supposed to? C'mon.

Many good people have been killed in the show. This isn't a child's cartoon, it's not strict on those rules.

Jon Snow is not fire proof.

You don't know this for sure, unless he got burned or something and I don't remember it.

Also, the "Jaime kills Cersei" path might not happen because Cersei is prego. I mean it's possible he'll kill her anyway, she's nuts, afterall.
Jon burnt his hand when he was fighting the wight at Castle Black. GRRM himself said not all Targaryens are immune to fire. Which sure, might not be true in the show, but Jon has already been burnt so.

Also, I really really really doubt she's pregnant. I think it's entirely possible she could see she was losing Jaime and made it up. Plus, she only has 3 children based on that gypsy woman's prophecy for her which they did portray in the show so I doubt they'll just throw it out.

GRRM also stated the ending is bitter sweet. So the White Walkers will lose, but shit will go down.

Jon will probably kill Dany or something. If he is Azor Ahai, then he would have to kill someone he loves. Dany also according to her prophecy, needs to bed someone for love and be betrayed again. So it kinda adds up that he'll kill her - or Drogon maybe.

Jon Snow is not fire proof. Not all Targaryens are.
A dragon getting killed and turned by the Night King is right on the money. I really hope they don't all die though.

Who wants to bet Cersei gets eaten by a dragon?
Nah, Jaime is totally going to kill her.

Dany attacking Westeros with her dragons is something I've been waiting years to see, and seeing it actually happen was extremely satisfying. Well done.
It really was. I enjoyed seeing her work with Drogon too. I like when we can see their relationship - it makes "Mother of Dragons" seem more real rather than another title in a long list. The way Drogon trusted her when trying to pull out the arrow and how he defended her back against Jaime.

I love how everyone instantly teleports across Westeros to get where they need to be. Just cut out all the boring shit.

I'm way more excited to watch the series now that big things are happening.
