GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 4 | TV Review

Following the ‘Red Wedding’, we now have the ‘Purple Wedding’. This review is going to be a bit more heavy on spoilers (or rather, one particular spoiler) than the last three, due to the fact that a major death kicks off the plot-lines of the season.

SHOWRUNNER: David Benioff & D. B. Weiss
WRITTEN BY: David Benioff, D. B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman & George R. R. Martin
DIRECTED BY: D. B. Weiss, Alex Graves, Michelle MacLaren, Alik Sakharov & Neil Marshall
MUSIC BY:  Ramin Djawadi
STARRING:
Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Charles Dance, Natalie Dormer, Jack Gleeson, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, John Bradley, Rose Leslie, Kristofer Hivju, Rory McCann, Gwendoline Christie, Jerome Flynn, Sibel Kekilli, Iain Glen, Liam Cunningham, Stephen Dillane, Carice van Houten, Alfie Allen, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Ivan Rheon, Conleth Hill, Aiden Gillen, Hannah Murray, Ciarán Hinds, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ellie Kendrick, Kristian Nairn, Michael McElhatton, Lino Facioli, Kate Dickie, Michiel Huisman, Dean-Charles Chapman, Finn Jones, Diana Rigg, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, Daniel Portman & Pedro Pascal

This season is an interesting one, in that, so far, it’s probably had the largest collection of great episodes, but at the same time, a lot of the season doesn’t quite live up to the overall greatness of season three.

GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 3 | TV Review

This season we reached the famous ‘Red Wedding’. I finally understand. So much so that season two seems slightly worse in hindsight (that review has been edited ever so slightly to reflect that opinion).

Anyway, same as last week, I’ll try not to spoil anything from this season, but there may be some spoilers for season two below.

RELEASED: March 31st 2013 – June 9th 2013
SHOWRUNNER: David Benioff & D. B. Weiss
WRITTEN BY: David Benioff, D. B. Weiss, Vanessa Taylor, Bryan Cogman & George R. R. Martin
DIRECTED BY: Daniel Minahan, David Benioff, Alex Graves, Alik Sakharov, Michelle MacLaren & David Nutter
MUSIC BY:  Ramin Djawadi
STARRING:
Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harrington, Richard Madden, Iain Glen, Michelle Fairley, Aiden Gillen, Charles Dance, Liam Cunningham, Stephen Dillane, Carice van Houten, Natalie Dormer, John Bradley, Jack Gleeson, Sophie Turner, Oona Chaplin, Sibel Kekilli, Rose Leslie, James Cosmo, Jerome Flynn, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Maisie Williams, Alfie Allen, Joe Dempsie, Rory McCann, Conleth Hill, Ciarán Hinds, Kristofer Hivju, Diana Rigg, Finn Jones, Daniel Portman, Art Parkinson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ellie Kendrick, Natalia Tena, Iwan Rheon, Kristian Nairn, Tobias Menzies, Clive Russel, Michael McElhatton, Gwendoline Christie, Noah Taylor, Ed Skrein, Jacob Anderson, Nathalie Emmanuel & David Bradley

This show really starts taking strides this season. While season two was mostly just build-up, a lot of season three is the pay-off. The War of Five Kings highlights some big events. Stannis Baratheon and his ilk make some power plays. Even Bran Stark gets a destination. In fact, the only character who perhaps does not progress this season is Theon Greyjoy, who spends the ten episodes as a captive of a mysterious torturer. And I’m willing to forgive that because I don’t much care for him anyway.

JUSTICE LEAGUE | Film Review

RELEASED: November 17th 2017
DIRECTED BY: Zach Snyder (& Joss Whedon)
WRITTEN BY: Zach Snyder, Chris Terrio & Joss Whedon
PRODUCED BY: Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg & Geoff Johns
STARRING: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Connie Nielsen, J.K. Simmons, Diane Lane & Ciarán Hinds

When Batman v Superman was announced, I was beyond excited. As we moved closer to the release date, I remained adamant that it would be THE superhero movie, regardless of what the critics had been saying; it had to be – the two most iconic characters in comic-books coming together for the first time in cinematic history.

And then I saw it, and it was garbage. Poorly conceived and poorly made; it was long, boring, depressing and worst of all, disappointing.

Fortunately, Justice League is everything that Batman v Superman isn’t. Where BvS was overlong, Justice League sits comfortably at just under two hours. Where BvS was boringJL is full of action, excitement and adventure. Where BvS was depressing, JL is hopeful and overall, a lot of fun.

And although some critics may be dismissing the film as the mess they expected it to be, in my opinion, it’s risen above that, and as a result is far from disappointing.
