Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

The Black Castle (1952) I was not expecting the performances to be as engaging as they were (Stephen McNally as the villain relishes every moment of selfishness, pettiness and evil he portrays and it's a joy to watch him work).

It's a good ending and also at least it is an ending. A book series without an ending, especially when he has all the time in the world to finish it, would be pretty embarrassing. Lol. And seriously fuck off, it’s not “embarrassing” to not finish a massive complicated series. What is “embarrassing”...

GRRM is going to take as long as possible to finish TWOW and then even longer for the next and presumably final one
