Please enjoy Arya and Brienne training for their ‘Game of Thrones‘ fight like badasses

It was one of the highlights of an uneven season 7: Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) returning to Winterfell and showcasing her mad sword skills by sparring with Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). But it didn‘t go down the way you think. For one thing, that wasn‘t Maisie doing an incredible acrobatic leap from her back, even though CGI fooled you into thinking it was.

This island restaurant plans to keep serving food as a second hurricane looms

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘ is the cinematic equivalent of a cotton candy sugar rush

If the Kingsman franchise is a one-trick pony, at least its one trick is a pretty good one.
