Earlier in the week I heard through the grapevine that Game of Thrones was going to have a couple of spinoff series dealing with events that happened before the events we all know and love.

So I just saw Wonder Woman… All right, let me start of by saying that I did not have high hopes for this movie… Hear me out! The initial reviews of this movie that I saw came from Salon and The Mary Sue… You know… these yellow journalists: Back off, men—they’re scientists: New “Ghostbusters” trailer gets slimed by sexist trolls The Ghostbusters Trailer Backlash Shows Men … Read More Wonder Woman: A Fitting Tribute
Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron have met before… in the movie Inside Llewyn Davis, we see them along side Justin Timberlake singing a song that… ironically seems a little anti-space-travel.
