Defiance season 2 episode 5 review: Put The Damage On

20 July 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

While no single episode of Defiance has been outstanding so far this season, the seeds are being satisfyingly sown for its future...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 Put The Damage On

There were lots of things to like in this episode, not least the major part played by Doc Yewll, one of Defiance's more interesting characters.

So far I’ve not been a big fan of the subplot where Amanda becomes a drug addict, but here it found a place to thrive, when she started to imagine that the man who raped her had come back to terrorise her. This coincides with the reappearance of an old flame of the Doc’s, and while these two things seem at the time entirely unrelated, they’re actually importantly connected.

In retrospect, you’re given a number of important clues about the reality of Amanda’s encounter with the past in that sequence. »

Defiance season 2 episode 2 review: In My Secret Life

27 June 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After a bumpy start, Defiance is quickly on track towards an interesting second season. Here's Billy's review...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 In My Secret Life

My disenchantment with the opening episode of Defiance was soon forgotten by this significantly better story, In My Secret Life. The theme of all the shenanigans packed into these forty-two minutes, was that we all have lives we think are secret, but they rarely are completely. 

The return of Nolan and Irisa coincides with a terrorist incident, though oddly nobody points out any potential connection. That’s good, because really there isn’t any. This has more to do with Tarrs, and their organised crime troubles, than anything Nolan should be concerning himself. But, like a moth to a flame, he’s drawn into leading the investigation with the excuse of getting Irisa out of E-Rep custody.

There were plenty of things to like as this story unfolded, »

To mark the release of Ray Donovan Season 1 on 9th June, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

When Ray’s father Mickey (Jon Voight, 24) is unexpectedly released from prison on parole, a chain of events is set off that shakes the Donovan clan, including brothers Terry (Eddie Marsan, Southcliffe) and Bunchy (Dash Mihok, Silver Linings Playbook), to its very core.

Ray Donovan Season 1 available to own on DVD & Blu- Ray from 2nd June.

Liev Schreiber And Jaden Smith Will Topline Slavery Pic The Good Lord Bird

16 April 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The darkest chapter in American history has always been ripe for the Hollywood treatment, but after Steve McQueen’s searing 12 Years A Slave took Best Picture at the Oscars earlier this year, it seems clearer than ever that there’s still a large appetite for movies about slavery. Luckily, the next star-studded movie about the subject won’t be quite as painful to watch as 12 Years A Slave. Deadline is reporting that Liev Schreiber and Jaden Smith have signed on to star in an adaptation of James McBride’s satirical slavery novel The Good Lord Bird.

McBride’s novel, which won him the 2013 National Book Award, centers on a cross-dressing slave named Little Onion (Smith), a young boy mistaken for a girl when rescued from his master by famed abolitionist John Brown (Schreiber). Together, they set out on a journey across the country, encountering individuals like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass »

20 February 2014 3:47 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We’ve known for a while now that Michael B. Jordan will play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in Fox’s upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four, but now the other three members of the team have been revealed following a final rewrite of the script and a lengthy casting process.

According to Variety, House of Cards star Kate Mara has signed on to play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, while Jamie Bell (Defiance) is expected to soon agree to join the Josh Trank helmed movie as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) has officially been offered the role of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, and it’s likely that his deal will be completed soon.

With Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn and Gregory Goodman serving as producers, the next step for the studio is to find an actor (or actress?) to play the villainous Doctor Doom. The plan »

‘Ray Donovan’s Liev Schreiber Signs With UTA

10 February 2014 10:38 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: UTA has just signed Liev Schreiber. Maybe it’s because I love that Showtime series Ray Donovan and especially Schreiber’s hard-edged title protagonist, but this feels like a real coup for UTA. You can tell that even though he’s a vet, Schreiber’s best work is ahead of him after this career changing role. Schreiber got a Golden Globe nomination this year for Best Actor in a Television Series Drama for Ray Donovan. Schreiber, who had been repped by CAA, recently wrapped a turn as Soviet chess master Boris Spassky in the Ed Zwick-directed Pawn Sacrifice, with Tobey Maguire playing enigmatic American chess champion Bobby Fischer. Schreiber‘s recent credits include The Reluctant Fundamentalist; Salt; X-Men Origins: Wolverine; Defiance; The Manchurian Candidate; and A Walk On The Moon. The agency will continue to help Schreiber in the small and big screen pursuits as well as stage. »
