Dog Soldiers (Collector’s Edition)

Screenwriter: Neil Marshall
Cast: Kevin McKidd, Sean Pertwee, Darren Morfitt, Emma Cleasby, Liam Cunningham, Chris Robson
Scream Factory
Rated R | 105 Minutes
Release Date: June 23, 2015

Written and directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent), Dog Soldiers is a horror-thriller about a squad of six British Army soldiers dispatched to the Scottish Highlands on a training mission.

Private Cooper (Kevin McKidd), Sergeant Harry G. Wells (Sean Pertwee), Private “Spoon” Witherspoon (Darren Morfitt), and their fellow compatriots encounter Captain Richard Ryan (Liam Cunningham) – the sole survivor of a Special Ops mission gone horribly wrong.

Off-kilter and cryptic as all get-out, Captain Ryan refuses to disclose his top secret mission – or what slaughtered his men – to the group. Before the soldiers can get control of the situation, they’re attacked by stealthy assailants. Help comes in the form of Megan (Emma Cleasby), a zoologist who leads the remaining men to a deserted farmhouse in the wilderness. As darkness falls, the decrepit shelter is surrounded by their attackers – a pack of bloodthirsty werewolves.

Another year has come and gone, and a new season of Game of Thrones is on the horizon—season five, to be specific, which will premiere on April 12th.

As always, HBO has released the previous season, season four, on Blu-ray and DVD just in time to help get us through these undeniably difficult final couple of months of waiting for the new season to arrive. Once again we offer our review without any spoilers—in case you’ve not yet started or finished the latest season—and focus mainly on what fans of the show who are caught up want to know, which is what special features are included on the discs. If you’ve never seen the show at all, why on earth are you reading a review of season four instead of watching season one, episode one? Go now!

RELEASE DATE: February 18, 2014

It’s cold and dark and depressing outside as many of us fight through the dead of winter, but excitement is starting to build in the land of television as Game of Thrones begins to take over once again. It started with the first trailers and behind-the-scenes special for season four. It continues with the release of season three on Blu-ray today. And officially hits its full stride on April 6th with the start of the new season, as the show looks to continue its dominance over others as the best on TV today. The warmth of the sun is not far off now. For us anyway; we know what’s coming for Westeros.

With one of the most shocking sequences of events in TV history setting the internet ablaze with reactions, memes aplenty, and much discussion, season three continued to set the bar extremely high and continued bringing new fans to the series with no signs of slowing down in sight.

I was not impressed with “Second Sons.”

There’s normally a point each season that I reach with Game of Thrones, where one of the later episodes in the season becomes just too predictable or flat out boring. The latter certainly isn’t the case, as there are plenty of individually strong moments throughout the episode, but the sum of the parts doesn’t work to something I’m excited about. Which is sad, all things considered, because the strong parts in this episode are good. So let’s start with the good.

TV Review: Game Of Thrones 3.7: The Bear and The Maiden Fair
  |  


Game of Thrones
Season 3, Episode 7 – “The Bear And The Maiden Fair”
Directed by Michelle MacLaren
Written by George R.R. Martin
Starring: Mark Addy, Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, James Cosmo, Liam Cunningham, Charles Dance, Stephen Dillane, Peter Dinklage, Natalie Dormer, Michelle Fairley, Jerome Flynn, Aidan Gillen, Jack Gleeson, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Conleth Hill, Ciarán Hinds, Carice van Houten, Sibel Kekilli, Harry Lloyd, Richard Madden, Patrick Malahide, Rory McCann, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, and Issac Hempstead-Wright
HBO
Air Date: May 12, 2013

I find it rather fitting that the title of Game of Thrones‘ seventh episode focuses so much on a particular pairing, considering that the episode spends so much time on duos of characters instead of individual characters. “The Bear And The Maiden Fair” is a quieter affair, (scripted by George R.R. Martin and directed by the incredible Michelle MacLaren), that works as what will probably become the calm before the storm, leading into the final three episodes of this season.
