Doctor Who: The Lie of the Land

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10 EPISODE 08 THE LIE OF THE LAND WRITTEN BY TOBY WHITHOUSE DIRECTED BY WAYNE YIP This week promises a lot: the finale of the Monks trilogy, the return of Missy from the Vault (if it is her in the vault), and someone getting shot. From the trailers, it looks like this is going to be a Bill-centric episode with a plot like one of those awesome alternate universe episodes of Fringe, so basically, all the things I like. If you’re sitting comfortably, let’s begin. We open with a David Attenborough style history lesson (narrated by...

10 More DC Women Who Deserve a Movie

With Wonder Woman making her way into cinemas and early reports declaring it an incredible movie, we can only hope that DC are smart enough to branch out and make movies with some of the other amazing female characters in their stories. With that in mind, we’ve chosen ten that we would like to see given the $200 million movie treatment. Poison Ivy Poison Ivy has, alas, been portrayed on screen before by Uma Thurman in 1997’s Batman and Robin. However, that performance failed to capture some of the nuance of Pamela Isley’s alter ego. In the modern world...

What If Wonder Woman Were Made in a Past?

We’re opening the doors to the way back machine once again so we can see what Wonder Woman would have been like if they had made it in the 1960s, instead of us having to wait until 2017 to see Diana lead a big budget blockbuster movie. Really, Groot the talking tree was in two movies before Wonder Woman was released, and we’ve seen seven different actors play Batman. We’ve now jumped into our parallel universe, time-travel doohickey, and we’ve brought back some info about the movies that should have been and never were: 1960s Deep in the jungles of Vietnam,...

Doctor Who Recap: The Pyramid at the End of the World

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10 EPISODE 07 THE PYRAMID AT THE END OF THE WORLD WRITTEN BY PETER HARNESS & STEVEN MOFFAT DIRECTED BY DANIEL NETTHEIM After last week’s headtrip into the Doctor watching an episode of Doctor Who, we continue the story of the monks and the Doctor’s blindness. This arc has the potential to be something very special so let’s see how it goes. Recap: We begin with an odd previously on… as it shows events from last week but intercuts them with current events. I’m not going to rehash what came last week so I’ll focus on...

Happy Birthday, Star Wars! A Thank You From Our Families

When I pounced on this writing assignment I didn’t have a specific hook in mind, I just knew that if something was going to be written about Star Wars then I wanted it to have my byline. I umm’d and ahh’d for a while and pitched some different ideas but nothing really made me want to dive onto my computer and start writing. It was only when my older brother, Ken, sent me a video of my five-year-old nephew, Leo, dancing to the Imperial March while talking about how ‘all the ships blowed up’, that I had my idea....

New Game of Thrones Trailer Brings on the Great War

The newest season of Game of Thrones is on the horizon and from this trailer, it would seem the forecast is war. Lots and lots of war. The Great War, as Jon Snow calls it in the trailers final moments. There was a big focus in this trailer of what is coming for the women of Game of Thrones as the Khaleesi arrives in Westeros, Sansa has poison dripped in her ear by Littlefinger, Cersei is surrounded by enemies, and Arya is on the warpath. We see a fleeting glimpse of Jaime and Tyrion, and Davos gets a bit...

Doctor Who: Extremis

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10 EPISODE 06 EXTREMIS WRITTEN BY STEVEN MOFFAT DIRECTED BY DANIEL NETTHEIM So the Doctor is blind and the vault might be/could be/should be opening by now. It’s possible the BBC had a huge reveal that they’ve spoilt for no reason or maybe they’re smarter than that and it’s all a bait and switch. Let’s find out. Recap: We open “a long time ago” with an unknown character giving a voice over about the increasing problem of death and how to kill everyone. He introduces himself as sort some of executioner for all living things and says...

‘Wild at Heart’ is an Adolescent’s Dream and Nightmare

There is a language in dreams and a set of rules. That is why, when we’re dreaming, everything, every weird little thing, seems perfectly normal until we wake up. No other director speaks that language or knows those rules better than David Lynch,  whose career has been built on being able to take dreams and nightmares and translate them perfectly to film. Wild at Heart, his Palme d’Or-winning 1990 film, is very much a dreamer’s movie. It is the story of two young lovers, Sailor and Lula, who run away from her family to travel across America doing nothing but dancing,...

Doctor Who Recap: Oxygen

DOCTOR WHO – SEASON 10 EPISODE 05 OXYGEN WRITTEN BY JAMIE MATHIESON DIRECTED BY CHARLES PALMER The trailer for this one had by blood pumping as base under siege episodes are bread and butter Who stories that have a pretty good success rate. Add in the fact that I watched Alien pretty recently and that this season has been pretty much killing it each week, I was beyond ready for this week’s episode. So let’s do it. Recap We open in space and a familiar voice saying familiar words: “Space. The final frontier…” says the Doctor in voice over as two...

B2BO: We3

Book to Box Office: We3 Based On: We3 by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely Expected Release Date: None. Instead, we’re considering how a film version might work. Director: None, though we have a suggestion. Summary: From the publisher: With nervous systems amplified to match their terrifying mechanical exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 (WE3) have the firepower of a battalion between them. But they are just the program’s prototypes, and now that their testing is complete, they’re slated to be permanently “decommissioned,” causing them to seize their one chance to make a desperate run for freedom. Relentlessly pursued by their makers, the WE3 team...

7 Directors for Masters of the Universe

With the recent news that McG won’t be directing Masters of the Universe (that whooshing noise is the bullet we just dodged), it’s left the movie wide open for someone with talent to step into the breach and make an interesting, big budget, space fantasy extravaganza. For those not in the know, Masters of the Universe is the story of Prince Adam, a man from the planet Eternia, who can turn into He-Man, a super strong, shirtless hero. He, along with a team of quirk-filled, supporting characters must face off against the evil Skeletor. It’s like Star Wars with more...

Doctor Who Recap: Knock Knock

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 04 Knock Knock Written by Mike Bartlett Directed by Bill Anderson Another week, another Who. This season is off to a stellar start and hopefully the trend continues with tonight’s episode which seems to be a haunted house story starring Hercule Poiret himself, David Suchet. At this point, the chemistry between Bill and the Doctor would get me through even the worst Doctor Who but let’s hope they keep up this winning streak. Recap We open with Bill and a group of other youngsters going house hunting and looking at a bunch of...
