Thrill-seeking one-percenters become mercenary underdogs in "Soldiers of Fortune," a loud, cynical whiz-bang-boom dud that barely serves as an appetizer for the type of grizzled-geriatrics mayhem we can expect from the upcoming "The Expendables 2. " Christian Slater plays a recently retired, down-on-his-luck special forces soldier recruited by an "extreme vacation" company to give wealthy adventurers makeshift special-ops training, only it's really...

Instead of considering the much-anticipated next 10 episodes of"Game of Thrones"as a new season, viewers would do better to collect their weapons, gird their loins and approach it as a triumphant gamer does, as a new and exalted level. Winter is coming and with it more kings than kingdoms. With its ever-increasing cast of characters, each richly arrayed in native landscape, ritual, back story and entourage, HBO's glorious adaptation of George R. R. Martin's still unfolding sword 'n' sorcery epic makes Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" look like child's play.

It is the dream of most British actors to work in Hollywood. It is the revenge of those who aren't invited to disdain those who do. Ewan McGregor has been quoted as saying, "In Britain I'll get shagged off for doing 'The Island.' " McGregor, though, is still boyish enough to be the Prince William of British stars.

The first 10 minutes or so of HBO's new epic fantasy series "Game of Thrones" are spent celebrating the glories of cable, i.e. bloody violence (beheadings, hacked off body parts, eviscerated guts steaming in the snow) and HBO sex (female semi-frontal nudity, non-missionary position intercourse and unnecessarily graphic sound effects.) Unless you are a minor, you should not be deterred by any of this because "Game of Thrones," written and produced by David Benioff and D.B Weiss, quickly becomes a great and thundering series of political and psychological intrigue bristling with vivid characters, cross-hatched with tantalizing plotlines and seasoned with a splash of fantasy.

What's New on Video: Among new releases: "Patriot Games" (Paramount, no list price): A violent, slam-bang action-adventure movie--all well-staged action and little characterization--with Harrison Ford as author Tom Clancy's hero Jack Ryan, who's being stalked by an Irish terrorist (Sean Bean) out to avenge the killing of his brother.

Here's good news about the script of "Goldeneye," Pierce Brosnan's coming debut as James Bond. It will not be politically correct! This means--among other things--plenty of surgically enhanced lovelies who want to kill 007 or bed him. Or both. (I see "The Girls of Goldeneye" in a future edition of Playboy!) The film's two bad guys are Sean Bean (you might remember his well-muscled anatomy from "Lady Chatterley's Lover") and Robbie Coltrane (A&E's "Cracker").
