It might not be as big as your Super Bowl party, but break out the snacks, the wine and whatever else you have, the Oscars are here and it's time to get together with friends and have a good time. If you're one of those intense party planners who make a game out of Oscar predictions, well, I might have the winning formula for you to win.
I got the amazing opportunity to interview Kristian Nairn and Isaac Hempstead Wright who play Hodor and Bran Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones. We talk about the Red Wedding, their strong bond on the show, their favourite TV show and much more.
As we await the premiere of season 4, we will simply have to settle with season 3 of the highly rated HBO show, Game of Thrones, which is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD. Settle? Sorry, I mean indulge.

This is a great time to be a Doctor Who fan - the show is celebrating its 50th anniversary and we have had two special early releases of new-found shows! I caught up with our good friends at the BBC to discuss all the latest buzz on the Doctor...
Teens are notoriously hard to shop for. While I don’t have any of my own, I do have nieces and nephews, and well, I was a teen myself at one point in time. Trends change on a daily basis, and while you think you have your teen pegged, you might be completely off the mark. So this year, why not give a gift that is sure to please – the gift of music. Whether your teen shares your love of Michael Bublé and Katy Perry, or prefers tunes that sound to you like a mixture of nails on a chalkboard and the screeching sounds of an alley cat in heat, the choice of gifts for music-loving teens is endless.
Written by Sylvester Stallone, Phil Broker (Jason Statham) is a former DEA agent who moves to a quiet city with his daughter to lay low after a huge bust, but there's only one problem - Phil can't lay low.
David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) has been unreliable almost his entire life, but when he finds out that he is the father of 533 children, he has to decide if he wants to continue down the path of unreliability.
There are some men for whom the status quo is just fine. Why on earth would you want to try a new restaurant when you know exactly what to expect from a fast food joint? Why bike to work when you could be sitting in the comfort of your car instead? And why would you have a pumpkin spice latte instead of the usual morning coffee? Seriously, polluting espresso with the flavour of mashed up squash? It defies logic. Those guys are easy to shop for. Just look at what they’re using right now and buy a new one —maybe in a slightly different colour if you’re feeling brave. For those who think different, you sometimes need to go outside the box when it comes to gifts. Ramp up the portable sound by replacing the standard ear buds with some Dr. Dre cans, or ditch the dumb thermostat that’s been on the living room wall for decades in favour of a smart Nest Learning Thermostat. Guys who love to try new things will eat this sort of stuff up. We’ve got a few ideas if one of these rebels is on your gift list this year.

When I first heard about G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I figured I was going to wait for the DVD release, but let's be serious now, when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was announced, that basically reserved my seat at the theatres and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed.
