Game Of Thrones Blu-ray Special

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2013 by getbent57

GameOfThronesSeasonTwoDVD.jpgFound some thing very cool today.  It is a special Game of Thrones Blu-ray set.  It contains season one and two of the show on Blu-ray.  But wait there is more.  Which is, three exclusive Funko Pop vinyls.  They Khal, Khaleesi and Rhagal (which is one of the dragons).  You can check it out at Amazon.ca > here.   As I am typing this (Nov 8, 2013) they are asking $97.29.  Might seem like a lot of money but you get both season on Blu-ray and DVD plus the vinyl’s.  Think if you were to buy one of these vinyl’s in a store they would be around $20.  If I didn’t all ready own the first two seasons I would think about buying this.  Do think this would make a great gift for a Game of Thrones fan.  How ever if they are a fan like myself they all ready own the seasons.

Game Of Thrones: Season Two Blu-ray Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2013 by getbent57

GameOfThronesSeasonTwoDVD.jpgLet again talking about Game of Thrones.  This time it is a review of season two on Blu-ray.  Not going to review the show its self since I have all ready done that last year.  Going to talk about the Blu-ray box set.  First off it is much better than the first season Blu-ray.  You get more for you money.  Not all do you get the HD version of all the episodes you get a copy of al them on DVD as well.   Another good thing over the first season is there are more extras and commentaries. All but one episode as a commentary track on it.  Then are (I think) four episodes that have two commentaries.  I listened to them all.  Some were much better than others.  Like learning more about how the each episode was made, behind the scenes stuff.   Was a bit disappointed with one extra I was looking forward to watching, Game of Thrones: Inner Circle.  It has some of the actors and two producers talking about the season.  It was good but way to short.  Seemed like the cut stuff out of it as well.   One the plus side there is one extra feature that made up for that, Histories and Lore.  From the back of the box, “Learn about the mythology of Westeros and Essos as told from the varying perspectives of the characters themselves.”  This was very cool.  It has the actors voices in character with motion graphic animation tell you backstory/history of the world of Game of Thrones.  Enjoyed this very much.

If you are a follower of this blog you know I am a fan so you know what I am going to score this.  This is a must buy for any fan.  I keep talking about this show because I like it.   But all so because it is just awesome.  Have got two people from work to check this show out.  They are the type in a million years watch this type of thing but now they are big fans as well.   Bring on season three.

GameOfThronesSeasonThree.jpgFourteen more days to go until the start of season three of Game of Thrones.  So looking forward to seeing what the new season will bring.  To help spread the word they have realised a second trailer.  After watching it three times,  I going out on a limb and say this will be the best season yet.   Looks like there is a bunch of new characters.  We are going to see all kinds of kick ass sword fights.  Then here is the flying, fire breathing dragons.  You need to check out the trailer > here or below.  It needs to be watched full screen in HD.  Going to see if I can find out the song they used in this trailer.  It is every coo.  Fits the trailer like a glove.

Game Of Thrones Season 2 Recap

GameOfThronesSeasonThree.jpgWith season three of Game of Thrones a few short weeks away from starting.  They put out a nice recap video of season two over on their YouTube channel.   You can see that > here or below.  It has some of the actors and producers giving a recap of what has happened.  This is pretty cool for the people that might have forgot bits of the story.  So they wouldn’t be lost then season three starts.  Which is March 31, 2013 if you don’t know all ready.

As for my self I have a copy of season two on Blu-ray.  Just finished watching episode eight.  What I like to do is watch the episode then re-watch it with the commentary on.  All but one episode has commentary and a few have two commentaries.  For the most part they are good.  Some of the people are better at it than others.  Have all so started to reading the second book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Clash of Kings which season two is based on.  This world is pretty awesome can’t get enough of it.   Three more weeks to go.

GameOfThronesSeasonThree.jpgWe are near the end a February so that means we have one more month to go till season three of Game of Thrones starts.  Seems like a long time to wait but the last day of March will be a good day.  To hold us over they released a real trailer for season three.  Know it will be awesome but think it will end up being ever more awesome that first thought.  If you haven’t seen it yet check it > here or below.   Make sure you watch in in HD full screen.  Makes it so much better.

Picked of a copy of season two on Blu-ray a few days back.  Enjoying re-watching all the episodes.  Just finished watching episode three.  Now will go back and watch it again with the commentary on.  Some times you get some good info on behind the scenes stuff.

Game Of Thrones: Season Two Blu-ray

GameOfThronesSeasonTwoDVD.jpgPicked up a copy of season two of Game of Thrones on Blu-ray today (February 20, 2013) .  Can’t wait to start watching all the episodes again.  This time around the Blu-ray comes with a lot more extras and more commentaries.   The back of the box says there are 12 audio commentaries.  So my guess is some at lest two episodes have two commentaries.  Of all the extras on the discs  the one called Game of Thrones: Inner Circle looks like the best.  It have five of the actors plus two executive discussing filming season two in a roundtable format .  This is on of my favourite all times shows if you have not figured that out by now.  So enough talking time to start watching.

GameOfThronesSeasonTwoDVD.jpgJust a quick reminder that Game of Thrones season two will be out on Blu-ray and DVD this coming Tuesday (February 19, 2012).  I know Wal-mart has it on for a cheaper price the first three days then goes up to the regular price.  Forget how much they are asking for.  But it doesn’t matter since I will be buying it any way.  Oh, and if you decided to get a Blu-ray copy from Future Shop it comes with the exclusive “Lannister Packaging”.  Looked at the picture of the back cover over at Amazon.  It looks the the Blu-ray comes with some cool looking special features.  Will let you know more when I get my copy.  Planning on watching all the episodes from seasons one and two to refresh me the story lines just in time for season three to start.  Which is March 31, 2013.
