AHS Freak Show: 7 Day Countdown

1 Oct

It’s the first day of October, and for some this month can be a horrible reminder of the ensuing winter climate. For others, including myself, October is all about the cool autumn air, sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes and of course – AMERICAN HORROR STORY!!

American-Horror-Story-Freak-Show

I’ve been waiting for this one since the end of last season’s finale, every season is a new story, a new theme, and an even scarier world to jump into and that’s what makes AHS one of the best shows on TV. (The best in my opinion sorry GoT!) If you haven’t read up on this season yet, here is a quick overview:

Freak Show will be the 4th season of American Horror Story (each season is separate from the other, characters, stories, locations all change with the release of a new season-  so don’t worry about catching up) This season is set in 1952 Jupiter,Florida telling the story of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. Returning cast members from previous seasons include, Jessica Lange (she has announced this will be her last season), Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe,Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, and Frances Conroy. This fourth season will also include new additions Michael Chiklis and Patti Labelle (playing Gabourey’s mother)

Okay so if that cast isn’t reason enough, Ryan Murphy announced to a fan on Twitter that Jessica Lange will be singing a Lana Del Ray cover. No word on Lana actually being in an episode, but with last season’s Stevie Nick’s cameo chances are high, and our fingers are crossed.

Here is a compilation trailer that someone put together of all the Freak Show promos.

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres next week October 8th 2014 on FX.

The Walking Dead: Top 10 Moments

24 Sep

It’s almost October which means it’s almost The Walking Dead season, which means let’s go through the greatest zombie moments over four seasons. Tweet us or comment below if you feel like we missed anything!

Morgan

10. Rick, Carl and Michonne run into Morgan (“Clear” Season 3)

For dedicated fans of The Walking Dead, viewers had a chance to reunite with crazy man Morgan from the season 1 episode 1. (Morgan and his son find Rick walking down a deserted neighborhood street in the first episode) Fast forward to Season 3 and Morgan is still alive, unfortunately his son isn’t. I think a lot of fans wanted to know what happened to Morgan and I think in the back of our minds we always knew him and Rick would find each other. After Morgan stabs Rick in the shoulder, he asks him why he never used the walkie-talkie. Rick explains he tried for weeks to communicate with him but eventually had to relocate his gang and thus out of walkie range. Rick realizes Morgan is delirious after he finds out his youngest son was killed by his undead wife (the wife he tried to kill back in season one) In the end, Morgan declines Rick’s offer to join them and continues on with his mission to ‘clear’ all the zombies in the area.

Game of Thrones: Top 10 Moments of Season 4

25 Aug

It’s been a few months since the Game of Thrones season 4 finale, and we’re officially wrapping up this epic season with a countdown of the greatest moments from season 4. A ton of stuff happened, so if we left anything out, comment or Tweet us. Join the discussion.

Oh and there will be spoilers! You’ve been warned.

Arya Bye

10.Arya leaves Westeros

We’re starting off this countdown with the final scene of this season, Arya stark has officially left the buildin’!! After her long and scary journey, she has the chance to finally use the Braavosi coin she received so many seasons ago. She hitches a ride on a Braavosi ship and doesn’t look back. I cannot wait for Arya’s journey in the upcoming seasons. Traditionally, they end off the seasons with a final dragon/Khaleesi shot, but this season they chose differently. I wonder if that was on purpose. This year at Comic Con a fan asked Maisie Williams (Arya) what to expect of her character in the next season, she replied ‘I am no one’. For readers of the book, this is everything

9. Grandma Tyrell admits to murdering Joffrey

Did she really admit it though? Another reason why I love Game of Thrones – the women always get a chance to shine. Lady Olenna (Margaery’s grandmother) was the definition of a boss ass bish this season when she refused to let the Lannisters control her granddaughter and the plans for the royal wedding. Whether she was in a scene with her granddaughter or Tywin Lannister, she always had something smart and sassy to say, and she usually had the last word. She might be a cute lil’ old lady but she sure knows what she’s doing, I’m sure jaws dropped when she admitted to Margaery that she had been planning Joffrey’s murder with Littlefinger. Say whaaaat!? Amazing, more twists and turns just how we like it. Also she’s given Margaery this sense of strong support and backing, and it’s really coming in use now that Margaery has to sort of ‘swoon’ Prince Tommen away from his over bearing mother Cersei.

8. Bran leaves Jon at the Night’s Watch

I think one of the reasons we love Game of Thrones so much is because they know how to break our hearts and somehow make us love them even more. The journey of Bran Stark is a long and grueling one, so when his crew arrives at the Night’s Watch every single fan was hoping for Bran to reunite with his older brother Jon. Unfortunately, the Stark children are too smart for their own good, Bran watches his brother fight and makes a heart breaking decision to leave without seeing his brother. Bran understood that the mission of finding the three eyed raven (damn you bird!) was more important than him reuniting with Jon. He knew once Jon saw him, he would never let his younger brother go beyond the wall, ruining their entire mission. Really heartbreaking scene though.

7. Prince of Dorne / Tyrion talk

Probably one of the best chats of the season, the Prince of Dorne visits Tyrion in his prison cell. This is where everyone jumped on the Dorne bandwagon, and a crucial scene for the writers wanting the audience to take OB’s side. Oberyn’s insights on the Cersei/Tyrion dynamic proves to the audience how smart and sensitive he really is. So now we like him more right? He explains the first time he ever met the Lannister children, Tyrion was still a baby. His sister Cersei hated him even then and Oberyn always wondered how one sister could hate her brother so deeply. And then he unleashes a bombshell and tells Tyrion he will fight for him during the trial by battle. So now we like and we’re worried about him too!?! Oh god this isn’t going to end well.

Littlefinger Pushes Lysa

6. Littlefinger pushes Lysa

This guy…basically started the entire show. He was behind Jon Arryn’s death, he was behind mostly everything that went wrong for the Starks…and now he’s behind Lady Lysa of the Vail because he’s about to push her into the vortex!! After he saves Sansa from King’s Landing, he lies to everyone at the Vail about her, calling her his ‘niece’. He marries Sansa’s aunt Lysa, and puts himself that much closer to ruling the Vail (practically untouchable by enemies because it sits on top of a mountain) When Lysa sees Littlefinger kissing Sansa, she freaks out and almost kills the young girl. But Littlefinger has bigger plans, one that doesn’t involve a wrinkly old witch…and one that does involve a young and beautiful red head.  He pushes Lysa into the empty hole that is thousands of feet in the air. Bye bye crazy auntie!

dragons-in-chains

5. Khaleesi locks up her dragons

We didn’t get to see a whole lot of our Khaleesi this season, but when we did see her she was most likely depressed over how powerful her teenager dragons had become. When Drogon ends up scorching a little girl from town, she has no choice but to lock up Viserion and Rhaegal (Drogon is missing). It was such an emotional scene, and probably one of the most expensive because we got to see the dragons up close…and in chains? Okay I hope those things are strong enough.

Bloood

4. Prince of Dorne Battle

Everyone loves Oberyn. From his first on screen moment he had all the ladies, and probably men cheering for him. He was the bad boy/sweetheart/nymphomaniac this season needed, and boy did he play it well to the last second. Instantly he became a fan favourite because he literally didn’t give a s@!% about what people thought of him- especially the Lannisters. He really was the knight in shining armour for Tyrion, until Gregor Clegane smushed his head so hard his brains poured out of his eyes. Graphic enough? Also, it could probably be one of the most nail biting moments of the season – true definition of a ‘trial by battle’.

Purple_Wedding

3. Joffrey Dies at his own wedding

Okay we definitely knew this was going to happen, but at a wedding- his own wedding?! Well, obviously, did you guys not watch season 3 episode 9? Nothing good ever comes out of a wedding in Game of Thrones. This was the moment every single fan had been waiting for, unfortunately it came at a time when we sort of forgot about Joffrey. It should’ve happened in his prime douchebagerry days. Nevertheless, it was an epic scene, I didn’t know what to do, laugh/cry/clap, the makeup design on poisoned Joffrey was on point. Everyone says that the book readers must find it boring or ‘not as fun’ because we know what’s about to happen. Let me just say, I was so excited for this episode, for this scene, it was worth the 6 month 1200 page read. Trust me.

Bye Daddy

2. Tyrion Lannister greatest speech of all time and then kills Tywin Lannister (his father).

Don’t mind the long title- It’s because I couldn’t find a way of separating these two scenes, because they sort of come hand in hand in understanding what led Tyrion to do what he did.  Tyrion’s speech in court showed all the pain and hurt he’s suffered through his entire life. Not only as a child, but seeing his love Shay walk onto the stand and admit to the court that she thought Tyrion was a ‘monster’, it was absolutely painful. After having a father that wants him dead, and Shay having left him for his father, what other choice did he have? He needed to make peace with King’s Landing before leaving, even if that meant killing his daddy while he was in the loo. I’ve discussed this with a bunch of people, and it was almost like everyone understood why it had to happen, but I don’t think anyone expected it to go down the way it did. Fact: Tywin is really dead, he’s not coming back. With everything Tyrion dealt with this season he really deserved a strong finish, of course it’s not just about Tyrion getting revenge, it’s also about the Kingdom. What the f is going to happen now that Prince Tommen doesn’t have Grandpapa to guide him? It might be the end of the blonde bobbleheads. Honourable Mentions: Jamie Lannister and the Eunuch who came out of the woodworks to help Tyrion escape.

Love

1. Jon Snow and Ygritte

Okay so some people will definitely disagree with this one being the number one moment but as a female fan of the show – I love the love stories!! We’ve seen our fair share of romances through the seasons, but Jon Snow and Ygritte was definitely/most probably the greatest of all time. When I read this scene in the book I immediately wished I could see it play in front of me. Some days (because I truly contemplate the outcomes of GoT on a daily basis – usually on the subway) I wish more happened in that scene, I wish they got to have a little more privacy (hello there were arrows flying around), but I still feel like it was the right timing, and it was just a tragically beautiful scene. But wipe those tears away…did you know the actors who play Jon and Ygritte are dating in real life? That makes me feel much better, but is Jon Snow ever going to find true love? Or maybe he’s destined for something greater like Khaleesi, maybe these two major characters are just never going to find real love. Maybe they’ll find each other? Okay I need to stop.

This was one of the most challenging countdowns to write up because there were so many great moments from this season, if you feel like we missed anything Tweet or Message us and let us know!

VMAs 2014: Yonce Saves the Show

25 Aug

The VMA’s are always a staple award show for young people in the movie/music/tv world. It’s not just a show for music’s finest, a lot of movie stars and TV actors show up and usually it turns out to be a really funny and entertaining show. Historically, musics biggest moments have been displayed at the VMA’s – we have Britney who made headlines more than once with her Madonna makeout session and her performance with the ‘snake’. Then there was Taylor Swift and Kanye West, member that? Britney with her Madonna performance, there was the Taylor Swift / Kanye West incident..Beyonce revealed her baby bump during a performance at the VMA’s (my favourite) and of course the Miley Cyrus twerk of 2013.

YonceVMAS

But with all of this hype around this award show- last night kinda sucked. I was waiting for Queen B the entire night, and obviously she was in the last slot because she was accepting the Vanguard award. The show was just really awkward, I don’t know who was directing in the control room but the show was riddled with technical difficulties, the audio was weird in the beginning, they would take to a camera and the camera would be moving around…it just wasn’t good. The 3 things that saved the show:

1. Beyonce singing her ENTIRE album in 20 minutes

2. Jay Pharoah impressions (Drake,Jay-Z,Kanye West)

3. Jimmy Fallon with the kiss cam, hug cam, give the person beside you $5

Some other memorable moments, Nicki Minaj had a huge wardrobe malfunction when she was performing on stage with Jessie J and Ariana Grande. After he ‘Anaconda’ performance she returned to the stage in a black jumpsuit but was holding what looked to be the broken front zipper of the outfit. She was using two hands the hold the outfit together so she looked extremely stiff on stage. Thankfully, Jessie J got her 15 seconds of fame by dancing around. Nicki went on to write about her malfunctoin on Twitter: “God is good. As long as a nipple didn’t come out to play, I’m fine. Love my team,”

Artist to Watch award didn’t go to Sam Smith…it went to….um what’s their name? The 5 girls that looked like they got styled at a more ratchet version of Forever 21. It was absolutely ridiculous, nobody knew who these girls were (Ok I did some research they’re called Fifth Harmony) Sam Smith is one of the biggest names out there right now, he probably has the song of the summer, and Katy Perry couldn’t take her hands off of him last night. MTV you should be ashamed.

Beyonce VMA 2014

Beyonce’s performance was amazing. She started off with ‘Mine’ ok I almost thought Drake was about to get on stage (even though he wasn’t their to accept his award earlier). And then she moved on through her entire secret album singing about a minute from each song, and then finally ending off with ‘XO’. Jay-Z and baby Blue walked on stage right after and Bay couldn’t even look at them without crying. Jay-Z called his wife the greatest entertainer of all time, Blue tried to say ‘mama’ into the microphone, Kim looked extremely jealous…and the show closed out to this. Thanks Bay for making that 2-hour wait totally worth it.

Honourable mentions: Video of the Year award went to Miley Cyrus who accepted her award by bringing a young man onto the stage, he spoke about his story and the story of all the homeless youth in Los Angeles. It was a very moving speech, and a surprising one from Miley, I mean one year ago she was grindin’ on a married man and now this? Maybe she redeemed herself? I don’t know.

The Walking Dead: Season 5 Trailer!

28 Jul

Here it is! Fresh off the Comic-Con press the new season 5 trailer of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

 

 

50 Shades of Grey TRAILER!

24 Jul

So now that we’ve had some time to process the new trailer for the highly anticipated 50 Shades of Grey movie, let’s dig in and discuss.

Grey

I have to give credit to Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) who I never thought could pull off this role, I don’t know what I expected but it wasn’t her. Now having seen the trailer, I was completely mistaken. She absolutely kills it in the 2 minute teaser that shows her first encounter with Christian at his office. She’s got the role of ‘innocent virgin white girl’ nailed and I can’t wait to see their chemistry explode on the big screen. Okay so maybe explode wasn’t the right word to use there?

Moving on to the leading man, who I completely supported for this role since day one. When they named Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) I knew he wasn’t the man for the job. It was a huge sigh of relief when he dropped out and the casting directors announced Jamie Dornan would play the role of Christian Grey. I mean he’s gorgina, he has an accent (although we don’t hear that in the movie)…but I have to say I kind’ve didn’t like him in this trailer. Is it just me? He almost looks like an 18 year old guy whose just running the family business because his daddy would rather play golf than actually work. Right? Wrong? And then when he started talking about his  ‘hobbies’, I was like ‘yeah right!…you!?’ then he shows Anastasia his sex room and I’m all like…’no that does not belong to you, you look like an alter boy’

So I’m a little conflicted right now because I don’t know what to make of this, I think the trailer was genius, the music (a special Beyonce version of Crazy in Love) hit the spot…but like everyone else my eyes are on Christian and I kind’ve expected a little more…’you scare the S*** outta me’ and less ‘it really looks like wardrobe picked out that suit for you, and you have no idea how to tie a tie’

Comments/Arguments. We need to discuss because the movie doesn’t drop until Valentine’s Day 2015.

This month’s TV Addictions

15 Jul

 

It’s been a while but we are back in action with this month’s TV addictions.

Keeping Up with The Kardashians

Okay so many of you might be rolling your eyes at this title but this season of KUWTK has been pretty decent. Our personal favourite Kardashian is Khloe, so it’s no surprise that we’re tuning in when homegirl is having issues at home. All the Lamar drama is coming out in the current season, and with the recent episode it’s 100% certain Lam cheated on Khloe.

She admits to having to lie about everything, she had to give up her Yonce tickets to pretend like her and Lamar were spending the night together for their anniversary. In reality, she was alone at home and he was probably out f***** some girl. I really thought Lamar was one of the good guys, it’s scary to see what he’s turned into. It’s easy for people to throw fire at the Kardashian clan, but Khloe has always been the realest, and there’s no denying what’s been going on with her and Lamar.

Khloek

While Lamar is overseas playing for some basketball team, one of his buddies messages Khloe asking her if they’re still together because Lamar is wearing his wedding ring. Khloe screams at her phone ‘F**k your ring, you were wearing it when you were f**king someone else too’ Ouch.

Also, for the girls that are BJ crazy, Brody has been making a few appearances this season so tune in for that. Next week is the first part of the two-part episode for their Thailand family vacation. Sadly, I don’t think my man Robert tags along.

Masters of Sex

Okay so I’ve heard so many good things about this show but never actually sat down to watch it. I’m 3 episodes into the first season and it’s a really good show. It’s definitely not mind blowing, but if you’re suffering from summer TV withdrawals, then this show might do it for you. Literally, there is sex everywhere.

Ray Donovan

My night in a beautiful bespoke suit is back! Liev Schreiber returns as the dashingly violent Ray Donovan on Showtime (Sundays at 9pm). This show completely surprised me last year, I ended up watching the entire first season in under a week, and it’s back with an all new season. It’s starts off with a bang, he literally bangs the poop out of his wife, so does this mean he’s become emotionally available? Or he’s still the same Ray. Look, I have no problem with the current Ray, honestly he is the sexiest thing ever so keep doing what you’re doing RayRay. If you haven’t checked out this show, please do. It’s a cross between Entourage and Scandal. So good!

The Leftovers

O-M-G the show of the summer has finally arrived. There is something to be said about this spine chilling new series on HBO. Starring Justin Theroux and Liv Tyler (to name a few) takes place in the wake of a global “rapture” which causes the unexplainable disappearance of 2% of the world population. The show takes place in small town America, focusing on the people that were left behind. It’s such a beautiful show, it will definitely sweep you away after the first few minutes. Just beware, you have to be emotionally ready for the hour long episodes, it’s only 3 episodes in so you still have time to catch up.

the-leftovers1

 

Those are just some of the shows we have waiting for us on the PVR, summer might be halfway through but there is still a whole lot of entertainment out there. You just need the really expensive TV subscriptions.

Now just a caution, it is summer, we want everyone to enjoy the weather as much as possible because it won’t last forever. Save these shows for a rainy day, but once you start you won’t be able to stop. You’ve been warned.

Who Won The Challenge: Free Agents?

27 Jun

I can’t believe it’s already the day after the finale! Seems like just yesterday we were talking about the premiere, but it’s done, we have our winners…and we’re not that surprised.

wINNERS

Taking first place for the guys is none other than Johnny Bananas- what is it like his 5th win or something?

And for the girls, this wasn’t a surprise at all- Laurel. (Beating Nany by only 9 minutes)

Although the winners didn’t have me fooled, the other finalists continued to shock me throughout the episode. Rookie Johnny came in second?? That’s amazing! He definitely surprised me, but after watching last night’s finale you can tell he has such a great spirit, and how cute was he with partner Devyn??

So the two Johnny’s took 1st and 2nd place, which left Zach in third but in my toughest opinion, he didn’t deserve to be there. Imagine this finale with CT!?!? Um the results would’ve been completely different. The two Johnny’s were so lucky that Zach sucked so bad. He could barely move blaming his body for crampin up. When he was teamed up with Laurel he was crying out that he wanted to give up, she refused. And then he goes on to call her ‘stupid’ and a ‘bitch’, how old are you? Meanwhile Rookie Johnny’s over there like speaking to Devyn in a soft boice telling her to ‘gently jump into his arms, he’ll catch her’ so cute. In the end Zach did admit that the challenge ‘humbled’ him in a way, because he just assumed he was going to win it all. So that was kinda cool.

In my opinion, all three girls deserved to win, all of them are badass bitches, they are each in their own way the true definition of a ‘heroine’. I wasn’t really waiting to see who would win first, I wanted to see if everyone was going to cross the finish line! Mostly Devyn, because Nany and Laurel were neck and neck for most of the race.

Devyn has been the funniest part of this season, she was constantly making us laugh, so of course we want to see her win some cash! Obvi, girls gotta get a new wig! Devyn came in third, but she surprised everyone with her determination and heart. In the end, once everyone had crossed the finish line except for Devyn, they cut back to her and it looked like she literally was still at the bottom of the mountain! I don’t know how she did it, I don’t know how anyone did it, all I know is I can’t wait to watch the next one! Oh and when are we going to see TJ doing one of these??

What we learned from this season of MTV’s The Challenge: Free Agents?

If you’re going to do a challenge, change your name to Johnny.
