Moon Man Review

24 December 2013 9:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Famed for his distinctive illustrative style and shrewd social satire, children’s author Tomi Ungerer penned Moon Man in 1966 – and it’s a tale that has now been brought to life on the big screen by first-time filmmakers Stephan Schesch and Sarah Clara Weber. Remaining faithful to Ungerer’s distinguishable approach, Moon Man combines a touching story with an enchanting aesthetic, to form a simply delightful animation.

Despite being a great source of inspiration to children amongst the world, the man who lives in the moon is bored and in need of some company. So he decides to hitch a ride down to Earth, though his arrival is not met with the warmest of welcomes by the world’s egotistical, bloodthirsty President, who fears an alien invasion. However despite being exposed to all of the world’s natural beauty, the Moon Man’s disappearance means that children around the world »

Is there a shortage of TV actors?

13 June 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Channel hop on any given evening and the chances are you will see the same faces, but in different roles. Do you have a favourite overworked star?

With so many long-running drama series criss-crossing our TV screens, the modern malaise of the same actors cropping up in multiple fictions is becoming ever more noticeable.

The problem was pinpointed a couple of weeks back when the actor Michael McElhatton appeared in two shows that went out concurrently on two different channels and had an enormous impact on both storylines. Anyone watching one after the other had every right to be confused.

If you don't recognise the name, you would recognise the noble forehead and striking features if you followed ace BBC2 serial-killer drama The Fall, in which he played corrupt Belfast detective, Rob Breedlove, and season three of HBO's Game Of Thrones on Sky Atlantic, in which he is Roose Bolton, »

Game of Thrones Season Three - Episode 10 Review

11 June 2013 7:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the tenth episode of Game of Thrones Season Three...

Myhsa.

Directed by David Nutter.

Written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Few things were going to top last week's Red Wedding, which featured the murders of Catelyn, Robb and Talisa, but, in a way, the season closer was more enjoyable. Mainly because George R. R. Martin wasn't crushing your hopes and dreams.

The aptly named David Nutter (seeing that episode nine was absolutely nutballs) returned as director in an installment that explored the importance of family within Westeros. Some dig family. Others...not so much.

Tyrion

...luckily for Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), his father, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), is in the 'dig' category. In a tense scene together, Tywin tells Tyrion he wanted to drown him in the sea when he was born. Whether this is because of Tyrion's deformities (Sparta-style), or that his mother died in childbirth, »

Review & Recap: 'Game Of Thrones' Season 3 Episode 10, 'Mhysa' Draws Things To A Close (For Now)

10 June 2013 7:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Well, after last week's horrible trauma, which I'm not sure everyone has gotten over, "Game of Thrones" returns with a final episode of the third season, "Mhysa," that lets us lick our wounds and offers some uplifting moments to temper all that violence and nihilism (don't worry, there's still plenty of violence and nihilism too). And we even get a few small moments of justice and a tiny bit of revenge on the part of one of the Starks. As for tying up loose ends, I didn't have high hopes for this episode's ability to draw all of its many disparate story lines to satisfying close, but, as directed by David Nutter, this episode addresses most of our characters and brings them to a place of certainty, at least, until the next season. The CrossingEpisode 10 picks up right where 9 left off, as Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton) strides from the banquet »

Game Of Thrones season 3 finale review: Mhysa

9 June 2013 11:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 10 Jun 2013 - 07:00

If you thought Game Of Thrones season 3 would end quietly after last week's jaw-dropper, you were wrong. Here's Ron's finale review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.10 Mhysa

There's always a little bit of a let-down after a particularly epic episode of Game of Thrones. After all, with last week's Red Wedding, it's only natural that this week's episode take things a little easier, be a little slower, and ease the viewers gently into the off season for our favorite blood-soaked Medieval fantasy drama. That's not exactly the case this week. Instead, rather than simply having a discussion of the aftermath of the Red Wedding, we see the Boltons actually finishing what they started thanks to a pretty impressive wide shot of Roose on the battlements of the Twins while below him tents burn and Stark men die screaming. 

It's one of a few great shots in this week's episode, »

Game of Thrones Season Three - Episode 9 Review

4 June 2013 9:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the ninth episode of Game of Thrones Season Three (spoilers ahoy)....

The Rains of Castamere.

Directed by David Nutter.

Written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

It's number nine time, historically the most significant episode in each series so far. Season one had Ned's execution. Season two staged the Battle of Blackwater Bay. In season three, it's a nice day for a Red Wedding...

Bran

...but episode nine is newsworthy in more than just it's main event. There was an unprecedented amount of "Hodors" uttered. 18 according to the Hodometer. He doesn't much like thunder, and a storm raged over the abandoned castle where Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) and company hid.

Problem was, a bunch of wildlings were stalking around outside (more on them in a moment). To keep Hodor (Kristian Nairn) quiet, Bran took his warg skillz to the next level - inhabiting a human mind. A Hodor-human mind, »

Game of Thrones, Season 3, Episode 9: “The Rains of Castamere”

Written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss

Directed by David Nutter

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on HBO

Kindly avoid future book spoilers in the comments. If this notion irks you for some reason, consult the postscript.

It’s been a strange couple of months for Game of Thrones fans who haven’t read the books, such as myself. Book-series veterans (the spoiler-respectful ones, anyway) have looked on with a sense of both dread and dark glee, referring only to “the Rw,” which I’d incorrectly assumed stood for “Royal Wedding,” of which we got one last week with relatively little incident  There’s about 45 minutes of content in “The Rains of Castamere” that does not consist of the Red Wedding, but you’d never know it for the furor that erupted on social media moments after the doors to »

Game of Thrones Season Three - Episode 7 Review

14 May 2013 9:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the seventh episode of Game of Thrones Season Three....

"Go Lannisters!"

The Bear and the Maiden Fair.

Directed by Michelle MacLaren.

Written by George R.R. Martin.

I didn't have the chance to review last week's episode of Game of Thrones. I was out of the realm, across the Shivering Sea, where they have terrible WiFi. It meant a double bill for me, and although Episode 7 was very enjoyable, last week's, The Climb, was superb and up there with the best of the show's. The quasi-montage of Littlefinger's monologue, Tyrion struggling to tell Sansa about their upcoming marriage and the view from the top of The Wall...at this rate, Season Three will easily surpass last year's.

But now to The Bear and the Maiden Fair, written by Big Daddy, George R.R. Martin, himself. And I think I speak for most fans of A Song of Ice and Fire when I write. »

'Game Of Thrones' - Kissed By Fire

1 May 2013 4:49 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

This review may contain spoilers. .Game of Thrones. gives us another moving example of why it and the books it.s based on are so popular -- even a villain can be hero. Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), now in custody of Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton) at Harrenhal, reveals to Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) that his execution of the mad king actually saved King.s Landing and its residents from complete destruction. We.ve always suspected that Jamie slaying the Targaryen king -- it earned him the nickname of Kingslayer -- was a sensible act, but to discover the full gravity of it is compelling. Even Brienne was dumbfounded. And Jaime.s distain for Ned Stark (Sean Bean) grows clearer. In Ned.s eye, Jamie had turned on a king he had sworn to protect; the oath, especially »

'Game of Thrones' Recap: Jaime Reveals His Kingslayer Origin Story

29 April 2013 12:10 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, "Kissed by Fire"] Wedding plans and young love abound in this week’s Game of Thrones. But don’t worry—the HBO hit hasn’t gone soft on us. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) were delivered to the custody of Lord Bolton (Michael McElhatton) at Harrenhal. He showed Jaime a kindness by sharing the news that the Lannisters had prevailed in the Battle of Blackwater, and by setting him up with medical attention from a disgraced maester.

Yesterday we posted a really well-done featurette to help us all refresh our recollections about where we were when we last saw our Westeros friends at the end of Season 2 of Game of Thrones. But it’s a 14-minute video, and if that is too long for you to watch – well, first of all, Game of Thrones may not be quite the show for you – then HBO has released this lovely synopsis, as well as the name of the Season 3 premiere episode and a brief synopsis of that.

If you’re worried that the episode synopsis is too spoilery for you, it comes near the end, so you can easily avoid it, and simply allow your eyes to swim over the sheer number of actors listed as returning and new to the series. Enjoy!

HBO Reveals Games of Thrones Season 3 Premiere Synopsis and Characters

12 March 2013 10:47 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

HBO's Game of Thrones is poised to commence what I predict will be its most watched season yet beginning Sunday, March 31. Like past seasons it will run a total of 10 episodes and push the showrunners' budgets to their max.

Fresh out of our inbox from HBO is the official synopsis for the Season 3 premiere episode 'Valar Dohaeris' as well as a returning and new cast list. If you thought there were a lot of characters to keep track of thus far, you haven't seen anything yet.

For starters, here is the Season 3 description that sets the table for what is to come.

As season three begins, the Lannisters hold absolute dominion over King's Landing after repelling Stannis Baratheon's forces. Yet Robb Stark, King in the North, still controls much of the South as well, and has yet to lose a battle. In the Far North, Mance Rayder has united the »
