    DC FanDome just happened and dumped a pile of trailers on us.



    Hah, fun to see Kristen Wiig in a meaty villain role.



    No connection story-wise to the upcoming Suicide Squad game, which I posted about in gen gaming.



    Here we go again I guess. What's up with the aspect ratio. Who do you think you are, Zach Synder? Wes Anderson? Whatever, this all looks very nice. Nice-looking dumb bullshit.



    Cool.

    WW84 looks okay. I'd watch it.

    TSS looks like bollocks. No thanks. The recent Suicide Squad was so naff in the first 15 minutes I turned it off. This looks worse.

    Justice League looks okay. I'll probably watch it.

    TBM looks... meh. The Nirvana track is cool, but I saw Nolan's Batman 1 and 2 recently and honestly, why do we need this? The design is worse and even Affleck suits the role better imho. I guess I'll watch it on TV at some point because I like Batman, but it just seems like a totally unnecessary reboot. And the bad guy is clearly The Riddler, no? So that's nice and spoiled.

    Tenet is out.

    I guess I have to wait to watch it at home. I hope it gets in Google Play soon.

    You know what I'm not gonna watch?
    Game of Thrones.

    The series ended one and a half years ago. I did watch the last season. But since then, I've not rewatched any episode or season. There's actually a lack of good series or films to watch. But even then, I got zero molecules in my body that want to watch GoT again. I'm also not interested anymore in GRRM's book. What do I care about Winds of Winter or the 7th book ? Fuck D&D. Fuck GRRM.

    Uh, GOT became terrible after season 4 or 5 exactly because the episodes stopped being basically written by GRRM (then re-written by the Davids) and started being written completely by the Davids. You can screw them, but leave GRRM out of it. The episodes just flipping what he'd already written were consistently fantastic, and not just IMO.

    I think the best we could hope for is some fans do a recut of seasons 5~8 to keep just the good stuff and fill in the rest of the story maybe with some good narration. I think if somebody pulled that off, that might salvage it better than anything else, if the recut itself actually told a good story through to the end. I think it's actually quite possible, since a lot of fans have already put together how the story should have played out in a lot of detail.

    GoT season 1 was broadcast in the spring of 2011. It was a success. People were looking forward to watch the whole story in the coming years. Asoiaf book 5 was released in July 2011. Book readers were happy. They knew there were 2 more books coming.

    Since 2011, GRRM had one job. And one job only. Write 2 more books. It's 2020 now.

    I blame GRRM. Lazy fuck.

    New Mandalorian this month.

    And Pegg and Frost's new series!

    I haven't seen (nor read) Game of Thrones at all; all I know about it is that people die and fuck a lot. My interest in Tolkien, Harry Potter etc is equally low (also with the latest news regarding the latter, my interest has gone from zero to negative).

    I see. Well, I can only speculate that you haven't tried to write a novel before. Having tried myself, I have some empathy with him on this, since I imagine even for a novelist that's written several fat epic novels, writing is still a soul wracking business, exhausting, unhealthy, easy to get burned out, and you need a lot of stamina built up & novocaine for the soul to drive yourself through it. It's the nature of the beast.

    No, indeed I have never written a novel. I understand that it's not easy to do. And that you can not just sit down for 6 months and write a novel. Well, maybe once in your life. But in general you need time off, time to recuperate, time to get new inspiration. However, GRRM started thinking about the story in 1990. He was working towards the end. That requires some inspiration, but imho, most of all it requires craftsmanship. GRRM is a professional writer.

    He could have sought for help. Help with the writing, the editing, redaction. He could have let others finish the story. Maybe under his supervision. He could have gotten help with all practical matters. He's filthy rich, even if his publisher didn't want to help him, or pay for help, he could have hired an army of people to help him.

    He did write text for other books. The spinoff-books around ASOIAF. He's been involved in setting up 2 spinoff-series for TV. He's traveled to all the scifi and fantasy conventions around the world. He spoke to anyone who wanted to interview him. He started his own arthouse cinema. He's been redacting for his non-asoiaf story-bundels. He's blogged about American Football (btw fuck the Giants). He wrote scripts for the first seasons of GoT. He got involved with the crap around the Hugo awards. He did a thousand things in the last few years. Except writing the 2 books that the world wanted him to write.

    But it doesn't matter anymore.
    I'm not interested in the story anymore.
    I posted the jpg because I thought it was funny, and it was true.
    GRRM could have been the greatest fantasy-writer since JRRT. But he chose to throw away his legacy.
