‘Game of Thrones’ Rape Controversy: George R.R. Martin Responds to Jaime-Cersei Scene

Game of Thrones Rape Jaime Cersei George RR Martin

HBO's 'Game of Thrones' is no stranger to controversy and questionable content, though the talk surrounding a rape scene between Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey) from Sunday's latest "Breaker of Chains" drew near-unilateral fire. Now, series creator George R.R. Martin stepped in to comment on the controversy of a scene somewhat altered from its presence in the books.

Why That Controversial ‘Game of Thrones’ Rape Scene Was Supposed to Be Disturbing

Game of Thrones Jaime Cersei
HBO

Much discussion has been sparked today following an eyebrow-raising sex scene (to say the least) in last night's episode of 'Game of Thrones'. In "Breaker of Chains," incestuous and morally corrupt siblings Jaime and Cersei Lannister do what incestuous and morally corrupt siblings do best, but there was something very different about the dynamic between the two this time around: namely, it played out as a borderline rape (watch the scene in question here). But, things are much more complex than that in 'Game of Thrones,' particularly between these two characters. Given the world's proclivity for the graphic exploitation of women, the scene is definitely scandalous.

’300: Rise of an Empire’ Review

300 Rise of an Empire review
Warner Bros.

Before anything else: the sex.

There is a sex scene in '300: Rise of an Empire' that is an all-timer. Put it right up there on the shelf next to 'Don't Look Now,' 'A History of Violence,' 'Blue is the Warmest Color,' '9 ½ Weeks' and any of the others that make those best-of lists. Actually, put next to that insanity in the pool from 'Showgirls' (you know, with the dolphin statue?), because there's a level of playful absurdity that changes it from a representation of love (or, more accurately, lust) to something of a Broadway choreographer's interpretation of a fight. Like a 'West Side Story' rumble, but with Eva Green moaning and bent over a table with maps and war figurines. A rise of an empire, indeed.

’300: Rise of an Empire’ Reveals Cool New Poster, Special Preview Screening

300 Rise of an Empire
Warner Bros.

For a film franchise that prides itself on such a unique and innovative style, the last couple of posters for '300: Rise of an Empire' have been uninspiring at best. Thankfully, the popular Austin-based poster boutique Mondo has come to the rescue, revealing a one-sheet worthy of such a weird, violent and stylized film universe. But how can you get your hands on one? Well, you're going to have to attend a special '300' fan event.

‘The Purge’ Review

Universal
Universal

If you spend any time talking to an evolutionary psychologist, you may come away feeling depressed. We are beastly, horrible creatures whose brutal nature may still be a few steps behind our notions of morality. (One neuroscientist, Sam Harris, argues that we don't even possess free will – not because of any theological notions of predestination, but because we are not yet equipped to master the synaptic responses in our brain which build from environmental factors.) The “New Founding Fathers” in the sci-fi/horror/thriller/whatsit picture 'The Purge' seem to agree with all this, or at least use it as an excuse to implement their very unique (okay, far-fetched) plan to pacify the American public.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Files for Divorce

Game of Thrones Season 3 Lena Headey
HBO

In what seems like a sad story bound to end in a million incest jokes, 'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey has filed for divorce with her husband of five years.  And before anyone even says it, no, she wasn't married to her brother, and it wasn't a relationship with her brother that caused the split (we just had to look up that she had one).  So, what was the cause?

Lena Headey in ‘Dredd’ + Heath Ledger in ‘The Dark Knight’ — Dead Ringers?

When we were at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, we got to see a screening of the upcoming action flick 'Dredd.' While we didn't get a close look at our guy Karl Urban, (duh, 'cause he kept his helmet on for the entire film) we did get a close-up snapshot of Lena Headey as Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal. Let's just say, we were a little more than frightened.
