'Game of Thrones': Where Will Sansa Go From Here?

48 minutes ago

Game of Thrones is under the microscope after Sunday's episode. It delivered perhaps its most controversial episode yet, with Sansa (Sophie Turner) raped by Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) on their wedding night, as her former foster brother Theon/Reek (Alfie Allen) was forced to look on. The scene sparked an uproar, with both a U.S. Senator and the geek-centric website The Mary Sue among those washing their hands of the series. Among the chief complaints critics lobbed at the show was that the rape scene, which wasn't included in author George R.R. Martin's books, was added for shock value and continued a

Louisiana's Anti-Gay Order Won't Disrupt Its Film Industry, Says 'Pitch Perfect' Producer

2 hours ago

Louisiana's governor Bobby Jindal has received heavy criticism this week for signing a "religious freedom" executive order to protect same-sex marriage opponents in his state.

‘Macbeth’: Cannes Review

8 hours ago

Show people may superstitiously refuse to call Macbeth anything other than "the Scottish play," but the producers of this latest film version have lucked out by assembling cast and crew elements that make for an intensely compelling work. Although tradition is upheld with a Dark Ages-Early Christian period setting, actually shot in Scotland for once (unlike the 1971 Roman Polanski version), in most other respects Australian director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) filters Shakespeare's tragic story of murderous ambition through a resolutely modern sensibility. Comparisons with Game of Thrones will be inevitable, and not always flatteringly intended, but they won't
