“What If” and “A Man Called Ove” intricately combine comedy with drama and romance with reality, which is no easy feat. This is how they did it…

The 2017 Emmy Nominations' Most Heartbreaking Snubs

Bates Motel, The White Princess, Reign were among the most heartbreaking 2017 Emmy snubs
Another year of Emmy nominations can only mean one thing: another year of snubs. The 2017 Emmy nominations proved to be no exception. It was an especially brutal year for retiring series and departing actors' final performances. As the 2017 Emmy nominations marked their last chance to be recognized.

With “Game of Thrones” voluntarily out of the running, there was room for other series to make their mark. For long-time readers of Eclectic Pop, the well-known favorites depressingly ignored are easy to guess. Nevertheless, these are the Emmy snubs that have been the hardest to process.

Writing About: 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 & The Starks

“Game of Thrones” has always been the source of a tremendous amount of writing inspiration and that has only increased with Season 7. The HBO hit is one of the few series you can constantly speculate about, without the risk of getting bored, or worse, left wordless.

Thanks to its labyrinth of characters and myriad of storylines, you can write about hundreds of themes without ever stepping outside the “Game of Thrones” universe. While every character and story have their merits, House Stark is where this “Game of Thrones” fan’s heart, truly lies.

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is so close; you can feel fire and ice converging in the atmosphere. It has been a little over a year since “Game of Thrones” ended its sixth season, and the wait for its seventh is almost over. If you are feeling a strange chill in the middle of summer, it probably has to do with the highly anticipated return of the HBO smash.

When we left Westeros, Cersei Lannister had taken command of the Iron Throne. Jon Snow had been declared the new King in the North. While Daenerys Targaryen set sail with her team and new hand, Tyrion Lannister, to take back the Iron Throne and rule the Seven Kingdoms.

Movie Review: 'Bleed for This' (2016)

“Bleed for This” is confidently directed by Ben Younger, stars a cast that has exponentially transformed themselves to physically resemble their real-life counterparts, and yet something is missing. A distracting soundtrack and hurried script make “Bleed for This” hemorrhage the sense of a well-rounded cinematic experience.

The movie tells the true story of Vinny Pazienza (Miles Teller), a World Champion boxer whose life is upended when a near-fatal car accident leaves him fighting for his life and the use of his legs.
