Game of Thrones is a series that has prided itself on realism in a fantastical setting. Amongst all this, Twitterati also did not forget to collectively drool over how Tormund fondly talked about Brienne - " Get you man who talks about you the way Tormund talks about Brienne", wrote one Twitter user, and rightly so.

    I always have a hard time describing King's series without sounding completely bonkers. In the movie, which is directed by A Royal Affair helmer Nikolaj Arcel , Idris Elba portrays the character of Roland Deschain aka the Gunslinger .

    His performance is over-the-top and the character, like most of the characters in this movie, is paper-thin and almost unnecessary - just another foil for Theron to fight. "I feel like we really set out to make this movie, and we ended up making that movie". In the opening moments, she emerges from an ice bath, covered in horrific-looking bruises and appearing more tenderized than some steaks I've eaten.

    Ned had told Arya that she'd one day become a lady and Arya responded with, "That's not me". As they... got comfortable (a "foreign invasion" as Ellaria put it) in front of Theon , Euron's massive naval force interrupted. As she sits, poised and unwavering, Jon is welcomed into her castle. Littlefinger and Jon will have a conversation and it's pretty clear that it won't go as expected.
  • Froome rides closer to Tour history

    Life&Culture

    With no major difficulties, the 222.5km stage from Embrun in the Alps offered no real opportunity for Froome's rivals to claw back time . Each time I've won the Tour it has been so unique. Although all the attention is likely to be on him, Team Sky as a whole has come in quicker than any other group of riders in the Tour. "That gives me a lot of confidence", he said.

    This is a rare comedy that is pleasing to both professionals and casual movie goers alike. If this table-setting is the part of Girls Trip that drags most, you come to appreciate it in hindsight. Does the film cling to formula quite often? But Lee takes some chances and allows his cast some leeway with this film, and it pays off. Don't be surprised if this " Girls Trip " is such a success we'll be rejoining the team for a "Ladies Trip " down the road.
  • Movie of the Week: Dunkirk

    Life&Culture

    In terms of storytelling, Nolan's impressionistic approach places " Dunkirk " close to Malick's "The Thin Red Line": It's not about dialogue, specific characters or story arcs as much as it is about a gut level feeling, which Nolan delivers as a full body sensory explosion.

    And so while Bloys seems opposed to anything like the latter, there still is a chance HBO will choose to show one or more of Thrones' final episodes in theaters after the series wraps up. What do people talk about when they don't have anything else to say? It's been more than a year since we last visited Westeros in the incredible Season 6 finale, " The Winds of Winter ", in which Cersei Lannister ( Lena Headey ) blew up half of the characters in the show and declared herself queen.

    American Sam Querrey shocks No.1 Andy Murray at Wimbledon

    Life&Culture

    It's sore. I tried my best. You know, gave everything I had. There is no chance of a repeat final this year, though, after Murray, who was hampered by his hip injury, lost in five sets to Querrey. A masterclass. I can't believe he is playing at that level at the age of 35. "Yeah, that's what I'll try and do". Querrey is trying to become the first American man to reach the semifinals at a major tournament since Andy Roddick was the Wimbledon runner-up in 2009.
