I called it quits on “Game of Thrones” following the soul-crushing, all hope is lost conclusion of last season’s “Red Wedding.” I was tired of watching the noble, good guys always getting one-upped by the vile bad guys and otherwise betrayed leading to some horrific tragedy.
I’m old fashioned with my entertainment. I want the guys who have character, values and some sense of decency to eventually emerge triumphant — not have their pet’s head sewn atop their bodies. If I wanted to watch the bad guys win all the time I’d pay more attention to politics and corporate America. But some of my Facebook friends managed to convince me to stick with it for just a little bit longer.

MTV had its annual Movie Awards show Sunday and for the most part, it felt like the world’s smallest awards show that should sorta mean something. Lacking a sense of unpredictability, irreverence and fun, this was a dull event totally devoid of any significant buzz-worthy moments. Here’s what stood out to me this year.
1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $41.4 million [2nd week; $159 million in total] Last week’s champ looked like it was going to have a short stint atop the box office, but a strong Saturday showing prevented a drop to second place. It stayed consistent with other recent Marvel Studios films – “Iron Man 3” and “Thor: The Dark World” both dropped more than 50 percent from their opening week haul, but “Winter Soldier” held up the best of the three sliding 56 percent.
“Rio 2″ actually led on Friday, which wasn’t a big shock since it had been about a month since a new family film came to theaters so this isn’t a major upset, but Cap’s audience turned out in force on Saturday. Worldwide, the film is now at $476 million and will likely reach $600 million by this time next week.
