EVERYONE GATHER ROUND THE INTERNET AND LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT HBO’S GAME OF THRONES
ITS A STORY OF HOPES AND DREAMS AND THE FACT THAT ITS NOT LEGAL TO PALMSTRIKE SOMEONE IN THE FACE FOR BEING A STUPID IDIOT (YET AT LEAST…IM WORKING ON LEGISLATION IN CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK)
LITTLE MISTER ANGRY
SAT EATING LAMPREY
READING HIS NOVELS AND BOOKS
ALONG CAME HBO
AND SAID THOSE STORIES HAVE TO GO
AND RUINED IT BECAUSE THEY ARE IDIOTS
EXHIBIT ONE: THE STUPID IDIOT
LET ME POST WHAT HBO DIRECTOR ALEX GRAVES SAID ON SEASON 4 EPISODE 10 COMMENTARY (HT REDDIT)
Tyrion knew the way through the tunnels under the Red Keep because he grew up
Refers to Tysha as “Tyrions first wife that died”.
Says he was “relieved” that they didn’t follow the books with the
Jaime/Tyrion/Tysha farewell. Lobbied to just have them kiss goodbye”
Tormund was in love with Ygritte
The hound loves Arya
His budget was blown, so they had to cobble together the Bloodraven scene from
practically nothing and leftovers
No budget for the FINAL shot. He had to beg HBO for extra cash
AND REMEMBER, OF COURSE, HIS STATEMENT LAST YEAR ABOUT LSH SAYING HE DOESNT KNOW HOW SHE WOULD “play into the whole story in a way that we’re really going to like” AND “To bring back Michelle Fairley, one of the greatest actresses around, to be a zombie for a little while – and just kill people? It is really
sort of, what are we doing with that?”
AND OF COURSE HE DEFENDED TV JAIME RAPING CERSEI NOT ONLY DID HE DIRECT THE ACTORS IN THAT SCENE, HE DEFENDED WHAT HE DID BY SAYING IT WAS NOT RAPE: “Well, it becomes consensual by the end, because anything for them ultimately results in a turn-on, especially a power struggle. Nobody really wanted to talk about what was going on between the two characters.That’s one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever done.”
HIS FAVORITE SCENE WAS WHERE HE HAD JAIME RAPE CERSEI AND THEN SAID IT WASNT RAPE BC BOTH JAIME AND CERSEI ARE TURNED ON BY POWER STRUGGLES AND ADMITS NO ONE ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT IT BEFORE THEY SHOT THE SCENE
I WANT TO WATERBOARD HIM SO MUCH!!!!!!!! BUT NOT FOR INFORMATION JUST!!!! BECAUSE!!!! AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TYRION GREW UP IN THE RED KEEP SO THATS WHY HE DIDNT NEED VARYS HELP UP THE PASSAGE?!?!?
TYSHA HAD DIED?!?!?
TORMUND AND YGRITTE?!
DONT EVEN TALK TO ME ABOUT BLOODRAVEN I JUST 90I-(092709276807987359)*&(*#@%&
THIS IS THE TYPE OF STUFF I EXPECT FROM A SHUT-IN OR @CONFUSEDGOTFAN NOT AN ACTUAL PROFESSIONAL PAID LOTS OF MONEYDOLLARS MAJOR STUDIO DIRECTOR LIKE ALEX GRAVES!!!!
ITS NOT ONLY ANGERING TO BOOK READERS…ITS INSULTING TO EVERYONE!!!!
FOR MR GRAVES TO HAVE SO MUCH SAY OVER WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE PLOT AND HOW THESE AMAZING CHARACTERS ARE DEPICTED ON SCREEN WHILE HE COMPLETELY DISREGARDS AND OUTRIGHT MOCKS THE BOOKS IS MORE THAN SIMPLY STUPID – ITS OFFENSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I GUESS IN DIRECTOR SCHOOL MR GRAVES SKIPPED THE CLASS WHERE THEY TEACH YOU TO ACTUALLY HAVE TO LEARN SOMETHING ABOUT THE CHARACTERS YOU ARE FILMING NOT JUST MAKING UP SOME RANDOM CRAP ON THE FLY LIKE OOOOOOOO SKELTONS AND FIREBALLS!!!!! OOOOOO JUST CUT ALL THAT BORING EMOTIONAL PHILOSPHICAL STUFF OUT OF THERE WE CAN FILL THAT UP WITH ACTION!!!!!
TO QUOTE BIRDMAN, ALEX GRAVES SUBCRIBES TO THE SCHOOL OF FILM THAT SAYS AUDIENCE “STARVE FOR BLOOD AND ACTION, NOT THIS ARTSY-FARTSY-PHILOSOPHICAL-CRAP!!!”
DONT FORGET ALEX GRAVES WAS EXECTUIVE PRODUCER FOR THE FAILED DINOSAUR SHOW “TERRA NOVA” A SHOW THE GUARDIAN CALLED “as corny and cheesy as a family-sized portion of cheesy corn nachos”
HES NOT ONLY AN IDIOT, HES LAZY FOR NOT ACTUALLY READING THE AMAZING BOOKS TO LEARN ABOUT THESE CHARACTERS AND PLOTS AND HOW THEY CAME INTO BEING IN THE FIRST PLACE – SOMEONE TELLS HIM THE BASIC POINTS OF HOW SOMETHING WORKED OUT IN THE BOOKS AND HE JUST MAKES DECISIONS BASED OFF OF THAT – NOT ACTUALLY PUTTING IN THE TIME HIMSELF TO LEARN THE FULL CONTEXT OF THESE CHARACTERS AND THEIR WORLD AND THEIR EMOTIONAL STATE AND THEIR BACKSTORY AND I JUST WANT TO STRANGLE
HIM UNTIL HIS EYES BULGE OUT OF THEIR HEADS AND THEN I CAN LET UP A LITTLE AND GET HIM TO NOD THAT HE WILL READ THE BOOKS BUT THEN I WILL SQUEEZE A LITTLE ANGERTIGHTER AGAIN TO MAKE SURE HE KNOWS I MEAN BUSINESS AND THEN WHEN HE COMES TO HE’LL BE LOCKED IN A ROOM WITH NOTHING BUT 5 BOOKS 5 NOVELLAS AND 1 WORLDBOOK IN FRONT OF HIM AND HE WONT BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE UNTIL THEY ARE COMPLETED AND THERE WILL BE KNOWLEDGIBILITY TESTS AND BOOK CLUB MEETINGS TO DETERMINE HIS COMPREHENSION LEVEL UNTIL SUCH TIME AS IT IS DEEMED FIT FOR HIM TO RE-ENTER SOCIETY AS A FULLY-FUCTIONING MEMBER AND…
I AM STARTING A BOOKBURNER REHABILITATION PROGRAM!!!!!! ARBEIT MACHT
THE PROBLEM ISNT ONLY ALEX GRAVES
ITS THE FACT THAT HBO AND D&D WOULD ALLOW A GUY LIKE THAT TO WORK FOR THEM!!!
SOMEONE WHO CLEARLY DOESNT CARE AT ALL ABOUT WHAT HES DOING!!!!
OR WORSE…THEY KNOW ALL ALONG!!!!!!
