The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Review: Monsters Fight Monsters

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Review: Monsters Fight Monsters
The Witcher has been a long-running franchise in the fantasy fandom. It was first a series of novels and short stories which spawned a series of popular graphic novels. In 2001, the idea was adapted into a film and TV series as The Hexer, and a series of board games were launched.

However, what really propelled its popularity has been the trilogy of video games developed by CD Projekt Red in 2007. With that in the collective consciousness, it was only a matter of time before a series like Netflix's The Witcher, featuring Henry Cavill, became a reality.

With a second season premiering in Dec 2021, Netflix is dropping a tantalizing animated feature that provides considerable backstory, and world-building for the world Cavill's Geralt introduced us to.

As a quick refresher, Geralt of Rivia, Cavill's character and the titular star of the live-action series, is one of the last witchers, monster hunters with supernaturally enhanced abilities.

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Review – A Serviceable Supplement to The Netflix Franchise

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Review – A Serviceable Supplement to The Netflix Franchise
This The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf review contains no spoilers.

The animated fantasy world of The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf feels trapped in an 83-minute film. No doubt it is lovely to look at as a Netflix Original Anime—a stricter definition of “anime” is stretching it, being applied to the work of a South Korea-based animation company. For as much as Studio Mir’s smatterings of color and movement will please the eye as it did with Legend of Korra and Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts, the mission of the story is lost in a haze.

Produced and penned by Witcher staff writer Beau DeMayo, Nightmare of the Wolf focuses on Vesemir, the mentor of the star of the Netflix series, Geralt. Vesemir is a slight antithesis to the grumpish Geralt played by a grimy and guttural Henry Cavill. The man who will become Geralt’s

Netflix has released a teaser trailer for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, an animated prequel to The Witcher. The upcoming film will offer an anime-inspired spin on young Vesemir's adventures on The Continent.

The makers seem to be going for a less serious tone with this one, and judging by the teaser, Nightmare of the Wolf looks fun and action-packed. The trailer also features Vesemir naked in the bathtub, a tribute to the games and Henry Cavill's now-iconic scene from The Witcher.

The official synopsis for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf reads as follows: "The world of The Witcher expands in this anime origin story: Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir - a swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for coin.

Will Dota: Dragon’s Blood Season 2 Happen?

Will Dota: Dragon’s Blood Season 2 Happen?
What began as a mod called Defense of the Ancients for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos in 2003 has become a multimedia empire for Valve. Dota 2 currently reigns as one of the most popular multiplayer online battle arena (Moba) games on the planet, spawning multi-million-dollar esports tournaments as well as a huge viewership on live streaming platforms. With Dota: Dragon’s Blood, Valve and Netflix bring the world of Dota to anime.

Sherlock Designer Arwel W Jones: ‘There’s a Magic to Set Design’

Sherlock Designer Arwel W Jones: ‘There’s a Magic to Set Design’
It’s summer 2011 and Arwel W Jones is causing a commotion in the Brecon Beacons. Cars overtake his forklift along the narrow country road, puzzling at the sight of a living room wall travelling solo past hedgerows and moorland. The wall belongs to Irene Adler, sometime adversary/paramour of Sherlock Holmes. It’s on its way to stand behind Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Lara Pulver in the series two opener of Sherlock, to help to tell their story and to make them look good.

Storytelling and making things look good are Jones’s job. As Sherlock’s production designer, his art department conceived, created and dressed the spaces where it all happened. Take design out of the mix and the actors would have been delivering their lines in an empty studio, like the one Jones posted a picture of in early 2011. That picture took him from 200 to 5K followers in under a week.

If you’re a glassy-eyed wreck suffering from equal parts Ptsd and survivor guilt, don’t rely on your own subconscious to conjure you up a relaxing psychic holiday. You may as well book a world cruise through Boko Haram instead of Thomas Cook.

However unwise, that’s what traumatised cop Sarah (Anna Paquin) does in the opening segment of Real Life, the fifth Electric Dreams story, written by Ronald D. Moore and directed by Jeffrey Reiner. Still visibly shaken a year after fifteen of her colleagues were killed in a police massacre, Sarah agrees to take an experimental Vr trip out of her mind.
