I really enjoyed this episode, but then I have enjoyed most of this season. I loved the train, the mummy and the little nod to the end of "The Big Bang." It is interesting that Clara seems to be creating the problem regarding Danny and The Doctor, because neither one seems intent on making her choose even though they… » 10/11/14 9:51pm 10/11/14 9:51pm

Considering they have 13 hours to play with, plus the character will at least be a huge part of the Defenders series, maybe even have a token appearance in the other shows, I don't see the problem with him wearing the all black costume for even most of the first season. It's not the collapse of Western Civilization if… » 10/11/14 8:49pm 10/11/14 8:49pm

I enjoyed it even though I went in wanting to hate it. I really liked the look of Gotham and I hope they really explore the city and not drown every episode in foreshadowing. Plus the world they have set up is going to make it hard to believe that Gordon lasts long. Black Mask seems like a perfect villain for what… » 9/23/14 12:50am 9/23/14 12:50am

Hey, sorry I missed this. It's obvious there was some disconnect over the open thread and the movie. It sucks because you posted quite a bit about it. I have some ideas about getting more involvement and would love a chance to run with it if it is okay with you. With October just around the corner, it would be a shame… » 9/21/14 11:06pm 9/21/14 11:06pm

What's wrong with MTV's audience? Are you having a "get off my lawn" moment? It being a show as opposed to a movie with different creators means that a lot will change. But I think it is a bit troubling to say that MTV's audience somehow won't get satire or self-awareness. Their comedy line up shows that to not be the… » 9/16/14 9:30pm 9/16/14 9:30pm

I hope not. I think if you work in Star Wars you have to own the prequels, good or bad, mostly bad. It would be pandering of the worst kind to try to erase the prequels. Plus even though he may not be in the driver seat any more, I don't think Lucas would allow them to fully erase the prequels. » 9/16/14 12:20am 9/16/14 12:20am

This always bugs me. That you can plug in the right kind of elements and get a great story. Good stories are good stories. Whether it is saving the whole of reality or going to the grocery store to pick up a frozen pizza, if the person telling the story is talented and knows what they are doing, chances are its going… » 9/08/14 4:36pm 9/08/14 4:36pm

Yeah, but those players chose to be there. When the sanctions first came down, the players were offered a chance to leave without having to sit for a year, most stayed. Any players that signed afterwards knew what they were getting into and chose to come there. They still played for a major conference, still got on… » 9/08/14 4:08pm 9/08/14 4:08pm

The anchor ruined it for me. As soon as it was introduced I knew what was going to happen and it just distracted me from the rest of the movie. Some of the scares were really effective, particularly when all the mirror people make an appearance, and the sense of disorientation was well done but the anchor just messed… » 9/06/14 10:58pm 9/06/14 10:58pm

The "Adult" Doctor

So a lot has been written about Doctor Who as the show embarks on a new season with a new Doctor, the excellent Peter Capaldi. Personally I have enjoyed the first two episodes and really think Capaldi has done a wonderful job so far. And for the most part people seem to agree, at least about Capaldi. But one thing… » 9/04/14 12:31am 9/04/14 12:31am

My pet theory: Missy is the Cyberplanner, somehow the result of Mr. Clever's time inside the Doctor's brain and the heaven in question is some new form of cyber conversion that allows the consciousness of a dead person to be uploaded into Cybermen. Maybe a hybrid of Mr. Clever and the Master, that would be insanely… » 8/31/14 6:04pm 8/31/14 6:04pm

An enjoyable episode. I think it was more about defining this Doctor in relation to the Daleks than anything else. It's interesting how he is both more open as a person yet also more distant and colder at the same time. I also like that it seems that Clara is teaching the Doctor how to be the Doctor as he begins this… » 8/30/14 11:37pm 8/30/14 11:37pm
