Ι finally finished Film III “A Feast for Crows”… and it was a blast!
I have to say that Season 3 might be my favourite and I was a bit anxious about your cut.
I also have to admit that some things weren’t exactly how I was expecting them to be, but your editing was trully flawless and the whole film felt really smooth and delightful.
As I have said before, this progect is your artistic vision and I am going to watch it as such.
! SPOILERS, I GUESS !
I really liked the fact that you chose to begin the film with a “cold start”.
At first I thought why didn’t you start the film with Sam running away from White Walkers, as the previous one ended, but then I came to realize that showing from the beginnig the aftermath of the battle was a smart choice.
The return of Daenerys was definitely a plus, but I was hoping to see also some of the scenes out from Season 2 you left. Especially her vision in the House of the Undying because of the events of the final season.
One other thing that I was hoping to see and didn’t make the cut was the whole ‘The Bear and the Maiden Fair’ arc. But I understand why you chose to left it out and, if I have to be honest, it didn’t affect at all Jaime’s and Brien’s growth throughout the film.
Finally, concerning the “big event” of Season 3, I was hoping that you would leave it completely untouched for I believe it is trully a flawless sequence. But again I liked what you chose to do. Merging of the ‘mergins’ in a montage between the weddings of the Freys and the Lannisters, was I really smart move. And of course THAT ending. A “cold start” and a “cold end”. Genius.
Summing up, I think Film III was a bit more ‘artistic’ than the previus two films and I absolutely loved that.
I have said it before and I will say it once more: You are doing God’s work here. I salute you, frined.
I can’t wiat for Film IV!
