@CretanBull I don't share your opinion on the films but you perfectly illustrated why I loved RJ's take on Star Wars. I felt like he got it, he just got almost too bold for the fanbase (really worked for me though). The only thing I think RJ doesn't fully grasp is humor that consistently fits Star Wars.
I liked it alot. Something I actually never truly took into consideration was pacing. I'm so used to Star Wars movies where the pace generally has to be kinetic, so the first 15 minutes or so I realized I had to adjust my brain to the "slower" pace that an television format permits. It was weird for Star Wars but real nice. I'm interested in where this goes next.
I know Jim and A.Ron mostly are either mixed on it or don't like the film, 58% to 60% of critics dislike it, and you know what a majority of the opinions are absolutely fair. However, I'm gonna come right out and say it. I'm making no apologies for loving this f'ing movie.
To the folks in the know, KOTM is for better or for worse, a Toho Heisei era quality film/script with a Hollywood budget. If that's not your thing then no this movie will not do it. If the Godzilla 90's era was your jam, then this is a love letter to you.

So "Volanqar" means "younger sibling" right? And Dany T was the younger sister of Rhaegar and Viserys right? And Dany T buried Cersei in her Red Keep by blowing up the whole motherfucker right? Seems to me the Valonqar Prophecy was not violated but fulfilled. There were many that thought it shoulda been Jaime or shoulda been Tyrion, or with the gender-neutral Valyrian is coulda and shoulda been Arya.
I suppose Jaime did put his hand on her neck but in a non threatening manner and perhaps she suffocated under the rubble. So it could've still been fulfilled just not in the way Cersei interpreted it.

However I hated the end of Jaime's arc. In some way I hope that's because GRRM will also end it that way because if this was a showrunner move then I think it was a poor move. Its tragic sure but I don't know. Just not pleased with it.
I actually like the "unsatisfactory" way Cersei went out. Its very Game of Thrones for the demise of the antagonists to not go out as fitting or violently as you would expect.
I can understand why some people don't like that Cersei died in the manner that she did and I too feel a level of dissatisfaction, but for me its a similar "dissatisfaction" to that of Joffrey I guess.
