3 months until Game of Thrones? Too long, but it's probably the best show on tv.

The Hunger Games is going to be huge.

Love Tarantino and his film list. Can't wait for Django Unchained. On another note, I guess I need to start watching Game Of Thrones. With all the critical acclaim it's getting it better be good.

Stoked on Oz & The Hunger Games.
Raimi has still yet to disappoint, and THG books are ridiculously good, hopefully the movie is as good.

Holly HoX! 01/15/12 10:13 PM
