Da Vinci's Demons season 3 episode 5 review: Anima Venator

In season 3, Da Vinci's Demons is getting harder and harder to follow...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 Anima Venator

Da Vinci's Demons has been kind of problematic for me throughout its third season thus far. It seems like everything is different, all the ideas of the first two seasons are just scrambled up to make everything a muddled, grey mess. Are the Sons of Mithras the bad guys? Are the Labyrinth bad guys? Sure, when you look at the surface, it's the bad guys like Carlo Medici and Riario involved in the Labyrinth and the Sons of Mithras have Leo's old ally Al-Rahim Aka The Turk (Alexander Siddig) and the true pope, Francesco (James Faulkner). However, one side is fighting to defend Italy and the other wide is actively assaulting and killing the people of the peninsula and by extension the Catholic Church.

Stuck in the middle are Florence and its famous son,

Da Vinci's Demons season 2 finale review: The Sins Of Daedalus

Da Vinci's Demons ends its second season on another mighty cliffhanger. Here's Ron's review...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

2.10 The Sins Of Daedalus

Every season, American television shows end on some sort of cliffhanger in the hopes of creating enough fan interest to get renewed for another season. Even successful shows, like Da Vinci's Demons, fall into this pattern because at the end of the day, even when you know you're coming back for a third season, you want to keep the fans talking. You want the fans to be on the edge of their seats, waiting to see how this situation unfolds, because a good finale leads right to a killer season debut. (See this season's debut episode for more on that.) This is a season finale leaving on such a cool moment that it actually made me angry.

Da Vinci’s Demons, Ep. 1.1 “The Hanged Man”: An intellectual superhero who’s more mindlessly entertaining than thought-provoking

Da Vinci’s Demons, Season 1, Episode 1: “The Hanged Man”

Written and Directed by David S. Goyers

Airs Fridays at 9 pm on Starz

All the promotional material about Da Vinci’s Demons trades heavily on David S. Goyer’s contribution to The Dark Knight Trilogy. So it seems more than fair to discuss one in relation to the other, especially in light of so many obvious similarities. The most conspicuous parallel being a tortured hero with a complicated family history who relies on his wits and gadgetry, more so than physical prowess, to strike out against injustice in a city rife with political corruption. And that’s just the story. Several other earmarks of Goyer’s handiwork also show up in the pilot, such as its flashback structure and most notably the heavy helping of Eastern mysticism.

Unfortunately, several of The Dark Knight’s shortcomings inevitably repeat here as well.

'Da Vinci's Demons' review: Nudity, violence and history - Just a typical Friday night on Starz

In one of the most fitting transitions of the TV season, Starz's series premiere of "Da Vinci's Demons" immediately follows the series finale of the network's signature hit "Spartacus." Both shows mix generous doses of sex and violence with historical details that could best be described as ... creative.

Not that historical accuracy is the point of this brand of Starz series. They're really all about the bare skin, buckets of blood, and enough soapy twists and turns to keep viewers hooked. Some detractors may write them off as guilty pleasures, but why feel guilty if watching a show is actually pleasurable?

While the first two episodes of "Da Vinci" are overly convoluted -- good luck keeping track of who's who, what their allegiances are, and sometimes even what they look like in the more dimly lit "atmospheric" scenes -- the action moves at such a rapid pace and unfolds with

'Da Vinci's Demons': How Leonardo da Vinci is like Batman

Born in the middle of the 15th century, during the Renaissance, artist and visionary Leonardo da Vinci was one of the most brilliant and restless minds of a glittering and restive age.

One would think that sticking 100 percent of the time to the facts of the life of a man described by contemporary Giorgio Vasari as having a "beauty of body never sufficiently extolled," an "infinite grace" and "great bodily strength," with a "spirit and courage ever royal and magnanimous" would be enough for a dramatic cable series.

And that's not even mentioning the major works of art he's known best for: the enigmatic portrait "Mona Lisa," the reverent and yet dynamic "The Last Supper," and one of the most famous pen-and-ink drawings of all time, depicting the beauty of proper proportions, called 'Vitruvian Man."

On Friday, April 12, Starz premieres "Da Vinci's Demons," a creation of writer David S. Goyer ("Batman Begins,

Watch: Behind The Scenes Of 'Da Vinci's Demons' With The Cast & Creator

Watch: Behind The Scenes Of 'Da Vinci's Demons' With The Cast & Creator
When "Da Vinci's Demons" premieres on Starz (Friday, April 12 at 10 p.m. Est), viewers will be treated to a very different portrayal of the renowned artist and inventor. While Tom Riley's Leonardo da Vinci is undoubtedly a thinker, David S. Goyer's vision also paints him as a lover and a fighter in equal measure.

In the behind-the-scenes video below, Goyer admits that the series reimagines Da Vinci "as a superhero adventurer; he's a little bit Indiana Jones, a little bit Bruce Wayne." Since Goyer is the man responsible for writing the blockbuster "Dark Knight" trilogy and the upcoming Superman reboot "Man of Steel," we're guessing he knows what he's talking about when it comes to superheroes.

Check out the new preview for the Starz series, featuring Goyer, Riley, executive producer Jane Tranter, and co-stars Eros Vlahos, Lara Pulver, Tom Bateman, Michael Elwyn and James Faulkner.

Da Vinci's Demons: Watch the New York Comic Con Panel Here

Da Vinci's Demons might not be premiering until next year, but the show made an appearance at New York Comic Con recently to hype up the impending debut.

Joining creator David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) on the panel were series stars Tom Riley (I Want Candy), Lara Pulver (True Blood), and Laura Haddock (The Inbetweeners Movie), with the cast members answering questions about what drew them to the role and teasing the characters they'll be playing (da Vinci, Clarice Orsini, and Lucrezia Donati, respectively), among other topics in the nearly 40 minute session. In addition, the premise for the show gets explained in a bit more detail than what has previously been available, illuminating a project that had until now been shrouded in mystery.

Da Vinci's Demons will be attempting to fill in a five-year gap in the great inventor's journal writing. For much of his life, Leonardo da Vinci had documented his inner thoughts,

Da Vinci's Demons Teaser: His Story is a Lie

Da Vinci's Demons Teaser: His Story is a Lie

We may be in the very, very early stages of the fall television season, but it's never too early to start thinking about shows airing next spring, right? Well, regardless of your answer/preference, Starz has unveiled the first official teaser for Da Vinci's Demons, a historical fantasy that follows a 25-year-old Leonardo da Vinci as he becomes the revolutionary that most know him as today. Through his contributions to art, architecture, and science, da Vinci solidified himself as one of the greatest thinkers the world has ever known, but what about Renaissance-era Florence got him to that point?

The teaser for the upcoming show doesn't offer anything in the way of new footage. We don't get to see young Leonardo (Tom Riley) in action or any hint of the extravagant Florentine set, which was built in Wales for the show's production.

TV Reviews: Game of Thrones, Season 2, Episode 2, “The Night Lands”
Game of Thrones He kinda sucks. “The Night Lands” Air Date: 4/8/12

Arya Stark (still dressed as a boy and mostly pulling it off), Baratheon’s bastard Gendry (Joe Dempsie), and Dumb and Dumber themselves – Lommy Greenhands (Eros Vlahos) and Hot Pie (Ben Hawkey) – bicker on their way to the Night’s Watch. That is, until the Royal Guard arrive with a warrant out for someone among their group. Arya immediately thinks they’re after her, but they’re really after Gendry, but no one knows why (except us). Yoren (Francis Magee) threatens the lives of the guard, and sends them on their way, but it’s clear they will be back, with more men. And now Gendry has a target on his back amongst the group, and he’s Arya’s only friend. Uh oh.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Nanny McPhee Returns’ Sure to Delight Children of All Ages

Chicago – Magical nannies, dancing animals, great gusts of wind, lyrical life lessons and cute kids in need of a father. You don’t need to be practically perfect in every way in order to find these ingredients a trifle familiar. Robert Stevenson’s 1964 masterpiece “Mary Poppins” used these elements better than anyone has before or since, resulting in what is unquestionably the best live-action Disney film ever made.

“Poppins” is also one of the most influential children’s pictures ever made, inspiring countless variations and copy-cats. Yet Cristianna Brand’s “Nurse Matilda” books took the formula and peppered it with gleefully macabre wit. They centered on a hideously ugly nursemaid who resembled the Supernanny from Hell, until her charges started to become well behaved, thus erasing her multiple blemishes. In 2005, Emma Thompson adapted the books into “Nanny McPhee,” a thoroughly enjoyable fantasy that felt like the offspring of P.L. Travers and Roald Dahl.

Nanny McPhee Returns Review | Dodgy but Reliably So

  • Pajiba
It's just as well that the sequel to 2005's Nanny McPhee has already earned close to $63 million abroad, for it certainly won't appeal to anyone who didn't watch (and enjoy) the original movie. It also doesn't help that, on this side of the pond, the filmmakers saw fit to confront Yanks with the following tagline: "Who's Your Nanny?" Back in England, however, this sequel is properly known as Nanny McPhee & the Big Bang, which is essentially what you'd expect from this franchise with the added twist that this adventure (presumably) travels back in time, so that the titular character can attend to a different family in need of a helping hand (not to mention the opportunity to wave that magic stick around a bit more).

Once again, Emma Thompson reprises double duties as both screenwriter (adapting from Christianna Brand's Nurse Matilda children's stories) and supernaturally gifted nanny. As expected,
