FILM & TELEVISION

Links below to trailers of some of my favorite movies and television shows. I didn't bother to list Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings because, well, duh. Yes, many of these are very well-promoted, major releases, but some aren't. All are recommended because they are examples of excellent storytelling, character development, world-building, and/or mastery of their medium. The list is by no means exhaustive, is in no particular order, and I plan on adding to it from time to time. Each has a link to a trailer or scene.
