DOCTOR WHO: Dark Water Trailer (Article) - 10/29/2014 5:10:30 PM

Not only was Forest of the Night really stupid, it was dull as well.  An episode where The Doctor faces off against a problem rather than an enemy or monster could have been really good but he didn't seem to know what to do.  He just kind of gave up.  Very disappointing.

Fast & Furious 7 - Trailer Announcement (Article) - 10/27/2014 8:07:07 PM

Fast 5 was the best of the films so far.  I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one, what with Walker dying half way through the production.  Will it be too sad to go see it?  But I'll probably go anyway.

Mania Box Office Report: WHOA, John Wick (Article) - 10/27/2014 7:53:22 PM

We went to see The Judge.  It was a good movie but the incest subplot was unexpected and icky.

Constantine: Non Est Asylum Review (Article) - 10/27/2014 6:03:08 AM

It has potential.  The lead does a credible job of bringing Constantine to life.

But in the comics they make a big deal of pointing out that Constantine rhymes with fine and is not pronounced Constanteen.  Really, is it too much to pronounce the name of the character correctly?

Doctor Who: Flatline Review (Article) - 10/19/2014 7:27:02 PM

Most of this season has been disapointing but the last two episodes have been excellent.  First Mummy on the Orient Express brought back a classic Who vibe.  Now Flatline has given us something new and different but every inch Dr Who.

I really like the Boneless (though not their name which is silly).  They are creepy and, unlike some of the stuff we've seen this season, believable.  Some of the FX for this ep were breathtaking.

The situation with the Doctor stuck in a miniturized TARDIS while Clara had to do all the investigating was novel and brought a new dynamic to their teamwork.

Now that Danny knows that Clara is still traveling with the Doctor I expect he's going to be quite ticked off.  Not that he has any right to be.

Really looking forward to the next ep. 

Doctor Who: Mummy on the Orient Express Review (Article) - 10/16/2014 7:16:30 PM

Look, the Doctor hasn't been treating Clara very well since his regeneration.  On the other hand, traveling through time and space with him is unbelievably cool.  I can see why Clara is conflicted.

If Clara lies through her teeth to her boyfriend it's a perfectly good character choice.  And par for the course for New Who.  Rose treated Mickey like a pet and Amy jerked Rory around a lot.  The women of New Who just aren't very nice people it seems to me.

Doctor Who: Flatline Preview (Article) - 10/16/2014 7:09:32 PM

With so many reviews being posted the reviews for Dr Who travel off the main page in 2 days and I can't find them again.  I try to look for them under TV reviews but that link doesn't work properly and it brings up movie reviews instead.  I'd love to get into a good conversation about the new season of Who.

Doctor Who: Mummy on the Orient Express Review (Article) - 10/14/2014 10:57:29 AM

I loved this episode.  You'd think that flying trains and attacking mummies would make it too fantastic for me but the interstellar train evoked anime films of yore and seemed more like an affectionate homage than an offense against science.  And killer mummies seem very appropriate for October.

I've got a few questions.  If all the passengers other than the science experts were holograms then what were Maise and her grandmother doing on the train?  Why did the mummy pick out the sick and the old to attack first?  He seemed powerful enough to attack the strongest passenger successfully.  How exactly did the Doctor figure out that the mummy was a soldier (the scroll looked like a flag?  Not to me.)  And why would surrendering to it cause it to stop attacking?  Why would dismissing it cause it to disintigrate?

Lots of questions.  But despite the confusion of the 66 seconds when the Doctor confronted the mummy it was a fine episode and felt more like Dr Who than any other episode this season.

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Edge of Tomorrow (Article) - 10/14/2014 6:26:24 AM

I saw Edge of Tomorrow in the theater and I enjoyed it a lot.  Criuse has chosen some interesting scripts lately.  Hopefully another insanely profitable MI film will finance a few more excellent but risky projects like this one.

Doctor Who: Kill the Moon Review (Article) - 10/6/2014 6:41:32 PM

That did bother me almostunbiased.  But I was still freaked out by the giant space butterfly and forgot to mention it.
