The Brothers Karamazov (1958) 7/10

Yul Brynner is very good here. Lee J. Cobb was Oscar-nominated for Best Supporting Actor, and William Shatner made his screen debut.

The Wire: Season 2 - 7/10
A step down from the first season. Same structure, similar final outcomes, and less exciting (not that the first season is that exciting anyways). Introduction of a few great characters while a few other great ones were killed off. Higher hopes for S3 and S4 which are the msot well-acclaimed.

Saw The Young Victoria in theaters. Pretty dull as I recall.

Vittorio De Sica: The Frank Capra of Italy.
Agreed on Mirace in Milan. But with a decent understanding of both directors: Bicycle Thieves, Umberto D, Shoeshine, and The Children Are Watching Us are all very far from Capra-esque.

Game of Thrones: Season 1 - 6/10
Really not that impressive. Decent entertainment. HBO's Boardwalk Empire is the far superior series.

I don't get the fuz about GoT. They've got a fantasy universe, knights, monsters, and every scene, even when it involves a full army walking in the background, is the regular "Why did you cheat on me?/I don't wanna discuss with my mother/we were best friends/and the like" dialogue that we get in ANY tv show from Mad Men to Sex In The City, from Dexter to True Blood. What's the point is spending that much money on a Dungeons & Dragons universe to just do a very very regular tv show?

I'm not a big fan either. It's like The Bold and The Beautiful in Middle Earth. Not adult enough to seriously engage me and not enough of a fun adventure to please the thirteen-year-old inside me.

Cries and Whispers (1972) - 8/10
I had hard time rating this. For the most part it was interesting but not engaging. But then in the last five minutes I found myself crying, as if I were experiencing the whole film at once. Weird shit.

I watched the first 2 seasons, and I watched them quick.

GoT is very entertaining, but it is not as great as The Sopranos and Mad Men often are, which tend sometimes to transcend their stuff. But it is much better than True Blood, which is pretty superficial.

GoT is too obvious a filmed book.

The worst thing about GoT is that it's addictive. Not-so-good and addictive: makes you feel like a moron.

But making one addictive is a sign of quality. I couldn't stop watching GoT either, and I immediately wanted to go on after the final of the 2nd season. It is well acted and good enough directed. Being a writers series it is no wonder that some dialogues are very strong, but it has its share of dramatical flaws too. The 2nd season wasn't an improvement of the first one, instead some narrative problems became visible.

Apart from Mad Men and The Sopranos of those modern HBO type of TV series I have seen also Rome, Deadwood and Breaking Bad are preferable.
