Reprisal Review: Abigail Spencer is a Woman Scorned in Hulu's Atmospheric Thriller

Reprisal is an atmospheric tale of revenge. 

With Abigail Spencer at the wheel, the story focuses on a woman who embarks on a vengeful campaign against the gang who left her for dead. 

The only negative is that you would think the people who left her for dead would, you know, check that she was actually dead. 

They would have saved a whole lot of trouble, but at least we get to see this revenge mission through the eyes of a multi-layered female who goes by the motto that revenge is a dish best served cold. 

It's a different role for Spencer to work with. One minute her complicated character could be a loving wife you wouldn't think would turn to a world of violence. The next, well, let's just say you wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of Doris Quinn. 

The role further proves that Spencer is

Mahershala Ali Graces TV Again to Join Second Season of ‘Ramy’
Mahershala Ali will be back on your small screen. Fresh off of his stint on “True Detective,” the two-time Academy Award winner will join “Ramy,” it was announced Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour session for Hulu.

Chosen as one of IndieWire’s Best New TV Shows of 2019, “Ramy” follows “an Egyptian-American millennial named Ramy; the series dials in on a generation caught between progressive ideals and regressive traditions; between wanting to form their own relationship with God and being told there’s only one way to do it right; between the old ways and the new,” as IndieWire TV Critic and Deputy TV Editor Ben Travers described in his initial review.

Confident and well-structured, the 10-episode first season makes an overall impact with a compelling cast of characters trying to negotiate their faith. The show apparently performed well with Ali, and according to Hulu, the actor is

Gerald McRaney on playing George Hearst for ‘Deadwood: The Movie’: ‘Eliminate all of the stuff that might look evil and play the actions’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

George Hearst might not be the worst villain ever played by actor Gerald McRaney, but he’s near the top of that list. The real-life wealthy miner and businessman character joined the series “Deadwood” for its third and final season 13 years ago as the main antagonist to the town. And now McRaney has returned for “Deadwood: The Movie” as a U.S. Senator still up to his murderous, devious ways.

For our recent interview (watch the exclusive video above), McRaney claims that most villains don’t think they are evil. He says, “One of the most important things that separates drama from melodrama is that if you’re tasked with playing a villain, you can’t play him villianously. You have to find all the things that justify all the things he’s doing and concentrate on that. Eliminate all of the stuff that might look evil and play the actions.

Movie Review – Deadwood: The Movie (2019)

Deadwood: The Movie. 2019.

Directed by Daniel Minahan.

Starring Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker, Paula Malcomson, W. Earl Brown, Dayton Callie, Kim Dickens, Brad Dourif, Anna Gunn, John Hawkes, Leon Rippy, William Sanderson, Robin Weigert, Brent Sexton, Sean Bridgers and Gerald McRaney.

Synopsis:

The Deadwood film follows the indelible characters of the series, who are reunited after ten years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.

Ending an acclaimed TV show is tough in even the most fortuitous of circumstances, as evidenced by Game of Thrones‘ divisive recent series-capper. But because sky-high (and arguably unrealistic) fan expectations weren’t enough for HBO’s belated, two-hour Deadwood wrap-up, this “series finale” of sorts faced a heap of additional creative and personal roadblocks.

Deadwood: The Movie Review (Spoiler-Free)

HBO returns to Deadwood with a movie designed to bury the cult series with praise and nostalgia for its vision of the Old West.

facebook

tumblr TV

Saying goodbye to someone you love can be difficult. Never even getting the opportunity is worse. Such is the case with Deadwood, David Milch’s cult Western classic from a different era of HBO prestige programming. Hailing of that time before premium cable darlings were expected to compete with cinematic production values, Milch crafted an artful but decidedly niche series in which cowboys spoke with the eloquence of Shakespearean princes while bathing in the verbal vulgarity of, well, a 19th century frontier brothel. The result was a ponderous but often profound show for its most faithful—and a curiosity for its network which cancelled the series after three seasons and with more plot threads lost in the wilderness than the steers of an abandoned cattle drive.

‘It Was Like Reuniting With Family’: W. Earl Brown on ‘Deadwood: The Movie’

When HBO abruptly canceled Deadwood in 2006, a few weeks after production had wrapped on the sereis’ third season, no one in the cast or crew got to say a proper goodbye to each other, or the experience. For W. Earl Brown, who played Al Swearengen’s top henchman Dan Dority, that was unacceptable. Several months later, he convinced co-star Sean Bridgers (Johnny Burns) to meet him at Melody Ranch, where the show had filmed — and where many of their former colleagues were now working on creator David Milch’s ill-fated follow-up,

Timothy Olyphant (‘Deadwood: The Movie’): ‘When a script really cooks, you can’t wait to do it!’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
Thirteen years after “Deadwood” ended abruptly on HBO, Timothy Olyphant returns with guns blazing as Seth Bullock, former sheriff and now a U.S. Marshal. The film version, titled “Deadwood: The Movie,” premieres on May 31 (just in time for 2019 Emmy contention) and picks ups in 1889 as the small western town celebrates entrance into the new 40th state of South Dakota. The two-hour project is written by the original show’s creator David Milch and directed by Daniel Minahan.

Spoilers Below For This Movie:

In our recent interview (watch the video above), Olyphant describes his return as the tough but mostly law-abiding lawman. He says, “David Milch is a genius. He’s one of the smartest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of being around. Not that I’ve spent too much time hanging out with geniuses, but my understanding is that not too many of them have had the life experiences that [he] has had.
