We bet you wouldn’t have placed Harry Potter and Game of Thrones together ’cause they are of completely different worlds. But thanks to the actors and actresses who’ve appeared in both series, we can’t help but wonder which of their characters would win in a fight to the death – if it really comes down to that. Here are our predictions!

#1 Michelle Fairley

Game of Thrones Catelyn Stark Harry Potter Hermione MotherHermione’s mother (HP) vs Catelyn Stark (GOT) 

There is no doubt that Catelyn Stark will win this round. Do we really need to explain? Both characters are gentle and loving mothers but Hermione’s mother is a dentist and we’re pretty sure she wouldn’t know how to fight using dentist’s tools. Whereas Lady Stark wouldn’t hesitate to kill for her family. 

WINNER: Catelyn Stark (GOT)

#2 Natalia Tena

Game of Thrones Osha Harry Potter Nymphadora TonksNymphadora Tonks (HP) vs Osha (GOT)

Both characters are as badass in our opinion and it’s gona be a tough fight. But we would say Osha will win in a hand-to-hand fight ’cause although Tonks has magic on her side, Osha has a stronger will to survive as a wildling. Plus we can’t imagine Tonks killing someone.

WINNER: Osha (GOT)

#3 David Bradley

Game of Thrones Walder Frey Harry Potter Argus FilchArgus Filch (HP) vs Walder Frey (GOT)

Though we want Lord Frey to be die in the worst possible way, he’s got the brains and sadly, the squib is as dumb as a rock. So Walder Frey wins this round.

WINNER: Walder Frey (GOT)

#4 Ciarán Hinds

Game of Thrones Mance Rayder Harry Potter Aberforth DumbledoreAberforth Dumbledore (HP) vs Mance Rayder (GOT)

Aberforth has the skills as a wizard and is shown to have great power when aggravated – he managed to deflect hundreds if not thousands of Dementors with a single Patronus Charm in Deathly Hallows Part 2. But it also takes a lot to bring wildlings together and rise to be The King Beyong The Wall even though Mance was a defector from the Night’s Watch. So they’re pretty even right there, plus both of them do have a weak spot, so let’s call this a tie.

WINNER: TIE 

Though we love the Harry Potter series as much as Game of Thrones, there’s no doubt that the characters in GOT are much more badass. Think we got the predictions right/wrong? Let us know in the comments below!

Movie of the Week: Independence Day: Resurgence

22 Jun 2016 by Venetia Sng

It has been 20 years since Independence Day and though we’ve had 20 years to prepare, the aliens have had time to round up their forces for a retaliation as well. Will humanity survive this attack? You’ll have to catch Independence Day: Resurgence to find out! BTW We totally dig the alternate history futuristic alien hybrid Earth.

We always knew they were coming back. After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defence program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Here are some Easter Eggs you probably missed from the trailer!

#1 There’s a colony of surviving aliens from one of the city destroyer ships and they have established a community of their own way out at the Congo.

Independence-Day-Resurgence-1

Independence-Day-Resurgence-3

#2 Colonel Hiller, played by Will Smith in the 1996 film, was blown to bits in a malfunctioning alien hybrid jet which explains why he didn’t return for this film.

Independence-Day-Resurgence-4

#3 The aliens we fought in the first film were just settlers meant to wipe out any life form on Earth and terraform the planet. They obviously didn’t expect humans to put up a fight. But for the aliens we will be fighting in Independence Day: Resurgence, is their equivalent of the army. So don’t expect them to be “push overs” like the aliens in the first film.

Independence-Day-Resurgence-2

Independence Day: Resurgence will be hitting the screens 23 June!
