Exclusive interview with actor Vladimir Kulich

16 July 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with actor Vladimir Kulich about The 13th Warrior, Ironclad, The Equalizer and his new projects Grave Walkers and Savage Dog

Perhaps best known for playing Buliwyf in The 13th Warrior, the big budget epic sword and sorcery-type film from director John McTiernan and writer Michael Crichton from 1999, actor Vladimir Kulich towers above his co-stars in most of the projects he’s been in. Imbued with a distinct look and voice, Kulich also co-starred in films such as Decoy with Peter Weller, Red Scorpion 2 with Matt McColm, Crackerjack with Thomas Ian Griffith, and Firestorm with Howie Long. Over the years he’s specialized in playing Nordic heroes or stalwart warriors in projects like Ironclad and the TV series Vikings, but he’s also versatile, appearing in key roles in Smokin’ Aces and The Equalizer with Denzel Washington. His latest projects are the independent horror film Grave Walkers »

Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands episode 12 review

Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands' final episode reinvigorates the series, but is it too late for hope of a second run?

This review contains spoilers.

In its final episode, Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands finally starts to deliver on the promise of its concept. This isn’t a perfect episode, but it’s far more effective than most of the preceding eleven, as the plot finally starts to kick into gear and the action is driven by understandable character choices.

First and most importantly, this episode finally made a solid connection with the poem by which the series is supposedly inspired, beyond re-using a name or two.

When it turns out the ‘mud-born’ Elvina has been caring for is Grendel and she is his mother, the revelation forces anyone with any knowledge of the poem to re-evaluate the whole series, and especially Elvina’s relationships, in the light of this revelation. »

Full throttle with Beowulf’s Ed Speleers

9 January 2016 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Acting has been a rocky road for Ed Speleers. But now he’s back on track with a starring role in Beowulf

To see a fashion shoot with Ed Speleers, go to the Guardian’s fashion pages

At 17, the actor Ed Speleers was in the express lane to superstardom. With a handful of school plays to his name, and no professional experience, he was selected to play the lead in Eragon, a Hollywood adaptation of Christopher Paolini’s bestselling fantasy novel. The budget was upwards of $100m, and the cast included Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich and Rachel Weisz. What could go wrong?

Plenty, as it turned out. Although a modest box-office success, Eragon was poorly reviewed and proposed sequels never materialised. Speleers took to the life of a young movie-star, running around, going to too many parties and failing to focus on his auditions. The work quickly dried up.
