The Golden Company was a sellsword company active in Essos. They were one of the largest and most skilled sellsword companies in the Free Cities, consisting of 20,000 men, horses, and war elephants. They had the reputation of never breaking a contract, which is quite uncommon among mercenary organizations. Their most recent captain was Harry Strickland. Their banner displays a cluster of gold skulls hanging from a red spear on a burgundy field. The Golden Company's forces were all but completely destroyed during the Battle of King's Landing, leaving their status as an organization uncertain. If there was ever a military unit in literature with more of a build up and less of a showing, I can't think of one! They did worse than the Iraqi Republican Guard!Golden Company

EVOLUTION of MechaGODZILLA in Movies & TV(1974-2018)
The last ten years has lead to this moment, in my opinion, one of the best of the Marvel series and one that ends the epic story. Thanks Stan! Excelsior!
"Our world is changing. The mass extinction we feared... has already begun... and we are the cause. We are the infection. But like all living organisms, the earth unleashed a fever to fight this infection. Its original and rightful rulers... the Titans. For thousands of years... these creatures have remained in hiding around the world. And unless all the Titans are found... our planet will perish, and so will we. They are the only guarantee that life will carry on."— Dr. Emma Russell
Oh yes, Palpatine is back!

Took daughter the younger to see Captain Marvel this evening. I am a Marvel fan, but with so many movies in the series, it is difficult for one to stand out above the others. Captain Marvel was good fun, but not a standout movie in the series. But the cat was good.
I went to see Alita Battle Angel with my kids this week. I actually quite enjoyed it. It has all been done before, it is very much Elysium meets Rollerball meets anything to do with Cyborg killers. I did find myself looking at all the background stuff a lot thinking it would make great wargames scenery. It does end with a sequel very much on the cards, but due to the fact it cost somewhere between US$170m and US$200m to make, it really will have to do very well at the cinema. The screening I saw it in only had about 10 people in a very large theatre. We will see…
