Yesterdays episode was fantastic! I know there was a lot of squealing in my household. Other than a lack of the 9th Doctor, it was just perfect. And it broke the Guinness World Record for the largest televised telecast!
I loved Billie’s performance, pure genius! The chemistry between David Tenant and Matt Smith made everything work wonderfully.
The best part for me was John Hurst’s portrayal of the War Doctor. He was sweet and loveable and innocent, while also being strong and intense. The perfect balance in a character playing such a pivotal role.
Now that the special has past it is time to prepare for the Christmas Special, and sadly, the departure of Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor.
Here is the extremely brief tease from BBC:
For those of you that didn’t rush out to see the premiere of Catching Fire, you missed out. Movies are always better when the theater is full of people who are genuinely excited about what they are going to see.
Personally, I went to a double feature, showing Hunger Games and Catching Fire back to back. The extra money for the ticket was well worth it! The crowd was hyped, and the energy from the first film flowed seamlessly into the next. It really gave you a feeling of how the two films matched each other. Plus, it was funny to watch the obnoxious guy in front of me laugh after every single line Woody Harrelson (Haymich) said.
In terms of the film itself, Jennifer Lawrence did it again! She was flawless and did a spectacular job portraying the rather complex character, Katniss. Catching Fire is truer to the book than hunger games was, and I can understand the changes that they made. Somethings in books simply do not translate well on film. It was beautiful, the world of Panem is exquisitely brought into existence, and the arena is even more devastating than before.
The writers were able to counterbalance the striking drama of the story with perfectly timed sarcastic lines from many of the characters. There are plenty of new characters and plenty of old to become newly attached to, but remember, only one person survives the Hunger Games.
I don’t want to give anything away, especially for those who haven’t read the book, but be prepared for the ending. It will leave you majorly hanging! I had so many feelings left over I didn’t know what to do.
This film is going to be all anyone is talking about for the next couple of months, so go out and see it!
Have you seen it?! It’s simply fantastic!
BBC has released a short mini-episode to tease the up coming Dr. Who 50th Anniversary, and for fans of the show it is outrageously exciting. I don’t want to give a lot away. See it for yourself here, let the squeals of joy commence!
Officially my new favorite doctor! I love Mini-Episodes!
Seriously though, Eight only got to be in the film, it was really cool to see him again, AND I am so ready to find out what happened between Eight and Nine during the time war!
If you haven’t seen the show, you are going to think I am crazy, or you just aren’t going to care. However, if you are interested in finding out more about this crazy show that absolutely everyone is talking about now a days, first, read my blog posts to get an idea for what you are in for. They are HERE and HERE. Then start watching “Dr. Who” I would suggest starting with the film or the new series, just be aware, the first couple of episodes are very campy, get past those and you are golden (and possibly also addicted). I would wait to watch any classic “Dr. Who” until you are truely in love with the show.
For anyone already in love with the show, get ready for “An Adventure in Space and Time,” it looks wonderful!
Love “Doctor Who”? Need to let out all the feels you just received from that mini-episode? Leave a comment below! And stay tuned for my Dr. Who 50th Anniversary Special post! (Only eight days left!)
A more accurate picture of how I feel cannot be found.
Hunger Games was one of the best pictures of last year and it’s sequel is almost here!
If you haven’t seen the movies or read the books, they are about a futuristic society called Panem, where two children from all 12 of the districts are sent into the Hunger Games to fight to the death. Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take the place of her young sister, Prim. She is then sent into the arena to fight against bigger and stronger tributes.
It really is fantastic, if you haven’t heard about it you have been living under a rock.
Jennifer Lawrence stars, and she is one of the nicest people ever. Seriously! I have never seen anything that made me think anything bad about her.
Here is the Catching Fire trailer for your enjoyment:
It’s finally here! The trailer for the Dr. Who 50th Anniversary Special!
Did you see all of the little tidbits? It’s like an iSpy book in there!
I really have been rooting for this show, but the episode “The Lesser Key of Solomon” totally turned me off from the entire series.
Originally, the show was about Ichabod Crane who came from the Revolutionary War era and woke up in modern times. There he met a police officer named Abbie Mills. They are working together to solve a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding days of America. It had all the right amounts of spooky and history mixed together, and I told all the nay sayers they were wrong, I tried to convince them this show was worth watching.
But now, I think they were right. In this episode things got really weird and I was just plain uncomfortable the whole time I was watching. Suddenly the focus has become very occult and just strange. I mean the guy having his head bent backwards in the first or second episode was weird, but it was s fleeting moment. I just couldn’t handle the gates of hell opening and the religious references. I mean don’t get me wrong, I liked Da Vinchi Code and I LOVE Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but there was just something too weird about what was going on in this episode.
I think I am going to give up on this series and find something else.
This sounds like it could possibly be one of the most amazingly, fantastic and geeky things you could ever do in your life! I have officially decided that I HAVE to go!
You can fly the Tardis, yes, the Tardis! Along with many other sets and props. not to mention a shop full of Dr. Who merchandise! Plus its only 22 pounds for a general admission ticket! Not to mention getting to be in the UK!
TV buffs, this is a must see! Here is the Website.
So basically I got nothing done this week after I discovered that this existed. I have been creating a plan to get myself there. It will happen, even if I have to fly inside someone’s carry on luggage!
