Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 6 Review

20 May 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the sixth episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.

Directed by Jeremy Podeswa.

Written by Bryan Cogman.

Sansa

Game of Thrones season five is now over half way through…yet, Barristan Selmy aside, there have been no major deaths or overly shocking twists. Events have been much more subdued, the writers instead focusing on Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) and Cersei’s (Lena Headey) political maneuvering. But wait…what’s that coming over the hill? It’s a wedding! Which, as seasoned fans know, is Martin-speak for ‘all your favourite characters are about to die’.

But something else happens instead.

Sansa (Sophie Turner) marries Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) in a ghostly nighttime wedding in Winterfell’s Godswood, and everyone survives. The ceremony goes off without a single flaying. The honeymoon, though…that’s where Season Five’s preference for unsettling psychological moments over shocking twists comes in. »

Game Of Thrones: George R. R. Martin, Sophie Turner Respond to Controversial Scene

19 May 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warning: Book spoilers ahead! (That paragraph will be marked with bold text at the start). Also, do not read if you are not caught up through Game of Thrones' latest episode, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken." At the conclusion of "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) was brutally raped by her now-husband, Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) while Theon/Reek (Alfie Allen) was forced to watch. Game of Thrones has never shied away from controversy or difficult moments, but for many fans, that scene went beyond the pale. It was similar to a choice showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff made last season in the episode "Breaker of Chains," where Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) had some kind of nonconsensual sex with his sister Cersei (Lena Heady). That scene fundamentally changed the conception of Jamie as a character, something that angered book fans and confused fans of the TV show. Things didn't need to happen this way, »

Recap & Review: Darkness Unfolds in "Game of Thrones" Season 5, Episode 6... You Readyc

17 May 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The best thing I can say about the sixth hour of the fifth season of "Game of Thrones" is that it acts as a companion piece to last week's fantastic episode "Kill the Boy". Like last week, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" moves the pieces around, setting the stage for future conflicts. Also like last week, it focuses on a smaller collection of characters and stories to be able to give each one multiple scenes. Finally, it too was written by series veteran Bryan Cogman. As far as I'm concerned, that's where the similarities end and what we get this week is pure and utter darkness. Before we get inundated with the muck, there were some elements in this episode I did enjoy. The return of The Queen of Thorns herself, Lady Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) is going to be a highlight even in the best of episodes. The big guns have »

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 5 review: Kill The Boy

11 May 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Even this far into its lifespan, Game Of Thrones is still brave, bold, gutsy television that has taken the fantasy genre to new audiences...

This review contains spoilers.

5.5 Kill The Boy

There comes a moment in every episode of Game Of Thrones where I inevitably groan angrily at the television. That's when the episode goes to black and ends for the week. However, this week's episode of Game Of Thrones had a little fun with that black-out convention and used it to create a little narrative tension while still making me yell at the television over a potential cliff-hanger yet again.

Last week's cliff-hangers are resolved pretty quickly. Left bloody in an alley, Grey Worm and Barristan Selmy's fates are quickly sorted out this week by Bryan Cogman's script. Grey Worm lies in a sick bed, being tended to by Missandei, and Ser Barristan The Bold lies on a funeral bier, »

Lena Headey Talks 'Thrones'

10 May 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister (Macall B. Polay/HBO)

Lena Headey's Cersei Lannister is breaking free in "Game of Thrones."

With her youngest son, Tommen, the King, and her father, Tywin Lannister, (one of the last of the old generation) dead, Cersei has empowered herself and is (not so) quietly ruling Westeros.

"It was weird going back and not being with any of the actors we've spent four years with really, but it's almost like letting this sort of horse off a leash -- someone that's been captured and tethered and then she's like free, and ...

Game of Thrones Star Teases That Cersei's Greatest Enemies May Be Hiding In Plain Sight

10 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cersei (Lena Headey) better watch her back! The queen mother has been quick to do all she can on Game of Thrones this season to make sure she still has some form of power over Westeros after losing the title of "queen" to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), as she just married Cersei's only remaining son Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman). And desperate times call for desperate measures: Cersei decided to put her weight behind the Faith, and arm the growing religious group called the Sparrows to create an army called the Faith Militant to patrol King's Landing. And the Faith Militant wasted no time in making their first move, rounding up and arresting all the gay men in the city...including Margaery's »

Game of Thrones' Hairstylist Explains How the Queens Wig Out—And Who Wore a 4.5-Inch Cage on Her Head!

Mother of fabulousness! Game of Thrones is chock-full of badass female leads, many of whom are queens. And if there's one thing that's true about royals, it's that they never have a hair out of place. (Just ask our favorite Duchess!) But there's no Amanda Cook Tucker in the Seven Kingdoms, and no bouncy blowouts. Instead, Queens Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Cersei (Lena Headey), and Margaery (Natalie Dormer) prefer their tresses to be light, long, lush, and intricately styled—and Headey, for one, has a short black bob Irl! So what's [...] »

Game Of Thrones: 10 Actors Whose “Acting” Is Distractingly Bad

8 May 2015 4:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

Right now, HBO’s insanely successful Game of Thrones is arguably the most popular show on television. But that doesn’t mean for a single minute that it’s perfect – and that goes double for one particular aspect of production that continues to come up short: the acting.

So whilst Game of Thrones is made interesting for the way in which has brought together so many renowned veterans of the stage – Charles Dance, Jonathan Pryce, Dame Diana Rigg – with such brilliantly cast actors like Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Natalie Dormer (to name but a few), it’s not all a walk around the rose gardens.

Because there are also a good number of actors on the show who are constantly bringing it down. That’s to say, there is a lot of bad acting going on in Game of Thrones, week after week, and it comes »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 4 Review

6 May 2015 5:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the fourth episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

Sons of the Harpy

Directed by Mark Mylod.

Written by Dave Hill.

Cersei

Tommen’s (Dean-Charles Chapman) nice and all, diplomatically avoiding violence, innocently naive of the larger political games at play, but sometimes you find yourself pondering: what would Joffrey do (Wwjd)?

He wouldn’t let this High Sparrow stuff take flight, that’s for sure. Granted, he might have shot a few whores along the way, but sometimes the realm needs a firm hand like that.

Through Tommen’s weak rule, Cersei (Lena Headey) continues to command the crown. “The Small Council grows even smaller,” remarks Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover) as the Queen Regent sends Mace Tyrell (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) off to Braavos. “Not small enough,” replies Cersei. The correct size, it seems, is one minus Pycelle.

Exploiting the tiny council with a maesterful act of political nuance, »

'Game of Thrones' Episode 5.04 Recap and Preview of Next Week

3 May 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tonight's new Game of Thrones episode, "The Sons of the Harpy", begins shortly after last week's "High Sparrow" left off, with Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) knocking out a fisherman to steal his boat, as he carries his new captive Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) aboard. We first saw Mormont for the first time all season in last week's episode, where he was drowning his sorrows at a pub, where he sees both Tyrion and Varys (Conleth Hill). What's interesting is, at the end of last week's episode, Mormont told Tyrion he was taking her to the Queen, which could either mean his former Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), or the new Queen of Westeros, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). We don't get any answers in this first scene, though Jorah and Tyrion's journey has certainly begun.

We then catch up with Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who is on a journey of his »
