It’s been almost two months since one of the most memorable Magnus opuses in the history of television shows finally came to an end. I don’t want to praise or criticize the last season of Game of Thrones since it is entirely an individual perspective. I fell in love with the show, and always wanted to share my experience with the show and how it changed my outlook from films and encouraged me to watch more series. Millions of fans and critics have expressed their love or spoken about the show or even criticized the show. Me – I just love it no matter what, and I’m here to narrate my journey with the show.

Game of Thrones – do you still need an introduction? It’s like Michael Jackson – my mom never listened to his music, but she knows who he is! Well, GOT – its pretty much the same. Young or old, fan or hater – half the world knows about it.
I first heard about GOT, believe it or not, over a conference call at work when one of my managers from the United States expressed her love for the show. I think it was sometime in 2014. I didn’t feel intrigued back then since I had never heard about it, moreover, I was not a fan of television series. The only series I had ever watched until that moment was Band of Brothers. I switched jobs in 2015, and a few of my new colleagues were hardcore fans of the show. It was fascinating that some of them were not avid followers of Hollywood films or series, but they were crazy fans of the show. That was my moment of reckoning, and thus began my journey of the Seven Kingdoms.
And so my watch began. GOT had already finished five seasons, which was both good and bad to me. Good – because I was able to binge-watch five seasons. Bad – because I was missing one of the best modern-day shows for such a long time.
If I’m being completely honest, I had a little dissent after watching the first season, but eventually understood the importance when I watched the subsequent seasons. So each time I recommend GOT to my friends, I simply explain them “have patience with the first season as it is important to know the premise, and if you can complete the second season – you’re officially a GOT addict.” Trust me – I have transformed a lot of addicts.
Everything about the show is just a melancholic infestation, and I still remember my agitation to come back from work in a rush just to watch an episode. I used to think I was crazy. Thank God! I’ve met folks who have shared a similar experience.
Right from production design to excellent casting choices portraying some of the most iconic and beloved characters to ever grace our television screens (or even computers, laptops, tablets or mobile…pun intended). Be it the seamless execution of the double Ds (Dan and David), or some splendid directional choices to wondrous locations, spell bounding costumes, even the iconic theme song – how can you not fall in love with the show? The show is a delight for action and fantasy lovers. The show’s cinematography and visual effects are beyond the realm of TV shows. It is like a never-ending bucket list of appreciation, and so is my love for the show.
As the saying goes, ‘Every good thing must come to an end’, and the same goes for the show as well. The final season left the fans divided. While some fans were distraught, the others loved it, and a few cribbed while others were reasonable. The final season is like an eternal circle of love-hate communion. The final episode was a bit of a let down – at least to me, otherwise, it was a decent season if we ignore the shortcomings.
The mammoth question on everyone’s mind as to why the season was cut short to only six episodes? If you consider with a different perspective, then the season wasn’t cut short in terms of run time (maybe a little but not substantially), but in terms of episodes. Yes, it is definitely rushed – there’s no denying, but there must have been some solid reasons behind it. Let’s consider a few:
1. It is by far the most expensive season for GOT, even for any other TV series produced till date. So, the studio might have considered reducing the episodes to cover the cost.
2. The double D’s (David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) were working on it for more than a decade, and as creative individuals, they must be inclined towards new projects. They already revealed their interest for a new series titled ‘Confederate’ after GOT is over.
3. It is now officially announced that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will helm the new Star Wars film. George Lucas himself was present during the production of the final season, which might be an indication. It might be possible that they were already on-board, and George’s presence was just a confirmation.
4. Apart from the creators, the entire cast and crew were also occupied with the series for many years. Some actors are now global stars, so they might be eager to pursue other roles. The same goes for the production crew.
5. In the end, no matter what – it is one of my all-time favorite shows, and nothing can change that. There were so many unforgettable moments and enchanting characters. If we forget the dragons and magic for a moment, then Game of Thrones is a replica of the world we live in filled with love, betrayal, politics, blood, murder, and above all, the true existence of human beings.

In fact, Akshay won National Award for his performance and clearly, the drama will have to face comparisons from the 2016 field-workplace hit.

July 14 1911, Sadjino got himself a ticket for a free trail ride on a new train of the railway company Zanetti. All the passengers are excited as they were the first ones to ride on that train. They were enjoying the beautiful scenery around the countryside and having the pep talk.
They were about to enter a new tunnel that went through Lombardy mountain. It was a half mile long tunnel and was one of the longest built at that time. It was a long tube to the other side.
As the train approached the tunnel black smoke came out of nowhere, the entire coach was covered in dark and people started suffocating. As soon as the train entered the tunnel there was a dense white fog as of they entered a new zone. The train slowed down and the fog enveloped the rain. Sadjino heard an unclear humming sound and milky white fog creeping from the tunnel and swallowed the first car. The train was barely moving and Sadijna was terrified, He jumped out of the window and hit the ground hard. He saw another man jumping from the train and that’s the last thing he could remember.
The train was never found after that. They searched for it the whole tunnel and route but they didn’t find anything nor any crash signs. Both passenger who jumped and saved themselves suffered from sleeping troubles and other stress disorders. There are various stories spreading on the train so officials thought it was best to close it. During World War II the tunnel got bombed and was closed forever.
There are records of medieval monks from Modena who saw a three-car train with people in it. But railroads haven’t been invented yet at their period. They described the passengers were clean-shaven and dressed in black as if they belonged to a cult or the work of some evil forces. The medieval monk’s report was kept in the records of Casta Solea. Surprisingly it was stored by the Sadjino family.
As per notes of a psychiatrist of a local hospital in Mexico, in the 1840s a group of 104 Italians were admitted in a hysterical state claimed they were travelling from Rome by a Zanetti train. They were all wearing different clothes and one of them has a cigarette box with a future date 1907 on it. It was still kept in a Mexican museum. There were no records of patients after that.
October 29 1955, Zavalichi a small town in Ukraine. Signalman Pyotr Ustimenko was on his duty. He noticed an unscheduled train coming. He saw a three-car old fashioned train moving soundlessly towards Gasfort Mountain without tracks. He thought we were dreaming and rubbed his eyes
Ustimenko saw a train with shut curtains, open doors and empty driver’s cabin.
There were many other records that sate the appearance of the Ghost train. Many incidents show that this train travelled through Time. Many scientific theories based on Einstein’s theory of relativity and Minkowski’s definition of distance show that there might be a possibility the train travelling through time. But the destination of the train is not yet reached.
And why not? Even Avatar was re-released in theatres. However, if a movie really deserves to be applauded, then it has to be Titanic (also by James Cameron). When Titanic released, there weren’t many theatres as there are today; in fact, the number of theatres as compared to today’s scenario was much lesser. Not only the movie, had Titanic gone on to be third in the list of highest-grossing movies but it also won the highest number of Academy Awards!

But, I am not comparing Avengers: Endgame with Titanic; the point worth considering is that superhero movies are focused on earning big. Warner Bros. shut down Zack Snyder’s vision of DC universe because it wasn’t earning as good as Marvel movies primarily.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is still one of those movies that are trolled on a regular basis. I am not getting into a superhero movie being or not being entertaining enough, but the fact remains that superhero movies are affected by the money-earning mentality and star power. For example, the Marvel Cinematic Universe gave us many entertaining gems, but one cannot deny that everything mostly revolved around Tony Stark! Is it possible that the actor, Robert Downey Jr., had a major influence in all of it?
When you think about it, Avengers: Endgame ended with Tony Stark sacrificing by putting on the gauntlet and “snapping” it, but that could have easily done by Captain Marvel who was also on the same battlefield! Or maybe Thor, at least the snap may not have killed him, given the fact that he is a God. But the movie needed an emotional punch in the gut, and maybe that is why Tony Stark was made to do it.
However, the entertainment value of Avengers: Endgame is so high that no one will or should complain about how it ended. After all, it worked, and the studio got what they wanted – a truckload of money and the audiences got to witness an epic saga.
Avengers: Endgame is still in theatres, and soon we will get the final version with the post-credits scene. Spider-Man: Far From Home will swing to theatres on 28th June 2019.
Avengers: Endgame, (despite confusing few people) gave us a movie that will remain as a milestone for years to come – A dream of seeing the biggest superhero assembly taking over Marvel’s (arguably) best villain came true! However, there were questions raised, and confusion created, for example, how can Peter Parker go back to high school after 5 years? Did Loki avoid the death at the hands of the Mad Titan? And if he did then shouldn’t that change the entire storyline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? A lot were questioned, and a lot are still debated on.
I found one question nagging me a little, and that was – Who was the Supreme Sorcerer after Avengers: Infinity War and before Doctor Strange re-appeared in Avengers: Endgame? Clearly, there was no Doctor Strange and the Ancient One! So, did Wong become the Sorcerer Supreme for 5 years?
Here’s What Wong Said –
The question was asked to Benedict Wong at Celebrity Fan Fest’s panel recently. Wong stated that even he is not entirely sure, but since he was the only one defending the Sanctum, so that makes him the Sorcerer Supreme. He also joked on writing a book on that!
Now that I know what Wong believed and what is logically correct, I am hoping that we will get to know more about it when Doctor Stranger sequel comes out.

Tell us what you think about it!
You can watch Avengers: Endgame in theatres even now! Spider-Man: Far From Home is going to swing in theatres on 2nd July this year.
In recent times, There has been a craze for Superhero movies, thanks to Marvel.
Fans are ready to see something different with the superheroes and then came few that actually made a mark.
Movies like Bright burn had actually shown the dark side of superheroes. But “The Umbrella Acadamy” Series was a whole different story.
There was something different about the series and people loved it a lot.
Now with the instant popularity of the series, Maker of the show and Netflix has confirmed that The Umbrella Acadamy Season 2 is in production now.
A group of kids with mutant powers are mysteriously born on the same day in October 1989 and the day before the mothers showed no sign of pregnancy.
A billionaire Industrialist by the name Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopts seven of these kids and creates The Umbrella Acadamy to save the world (Much like Charles Xavier)

But due to his Strict treatment with the kids, the family broke and the team got separated. Now the surviving members of the team try to solve the mystery behind their father’s death and also cope up with their abilities and rejoin with their broken family.
And also to save the world from Apocalypse.
The Justice League movie was supposed to be the biggest event in the DC Cinematic Universe, and it was expected that it would have a cameo from the ruler of Apokolips, Darkseid. The nightmare sequence from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice made it obvious. I am not getting into if Zack is the perfect choice for DC movies or not, but we will never know. The “decision-makers” in Warner Bros. never let him complete his vision. Eventually, Justice League became Josstice League and will forever be trolled for the CGI-d face of Superman and the unnecessary humour stuffing.
Coming back to Zack Snyder, he maintained a dark and gritty tone, which I loved and I think it grew on me with time. Anyway, let’s not discuss that anymore and show you what Zack had in mind with Darkseid. Zack Snyder shared an image of a young Darkseid on Vero, a social platform, and it looks pretty cool. Have a look.
Zack posted the image with a caption “Speaking of Father’s Day here’s the king daddy #UxasandtheAntilife” The image could be concept art or a finished product. Zack previously said that Darkseid would murder Lois Lane and from there the whole setting of the nightmare future scene will be based on. Zack calls the nightmare scene as “Knightmare scene.” Further, he was all set to introduce the Anti-Life equation, which will eventually affect Superman, and Darkseid will conquer Earth!
To be honest, I was excited about Zack’s Justice League, and I still believe it would have been better than the Josstice League we suffered.
No point crying over it now; we have DC movies to look forward to – like the Joker movie coming to theatres this October, Wonder Woman 1984 and Birds of Prey movie next year, and of course, the Batman movie slated for 2021.
