[Doctor Who] Closing Time


I hate that face! I’ve had nightmares about that face!
Good ole Craig! It’s Doctor Who’s version of Hurley!
So with one episode to go until the big finish and since they’re filming the Christmas Episode even as we speak, I have to say this entire Melody Pond being brainwashed to kill the Doctor was originally a great idea.
Unfortunately, something happened in the office’s of the Beeb and someone said (I can only assume): Ya know wot, how is that gonna work exactly?
Getting past that whole mess of Melody Pond, the Silence and killing the Doc, let’s get back to the episode at hand: Cybermen stalking people in a Department Store! Complete with Cybermat!

[Movie Review] Drive


Everyone over on AICN is raving about this movie and for once I whole heartedly agree with them.
Drive is has several styles running through it, I can best describe it as a european, 80’s, noir, violent tale about a Driver who works at a garage/ Hollywood Stunt Man by day and if the money is right will be your wheel man for 5 minutes.
Thankfully, Michael Bay is nowhere in sight.

[ News ] Ten years…

For those who have read this before, you can skip it. I’m putting the updates above the cut.
Ten years later and it’s a Sunday.
I’ve moved twice. Went back to school. Graduated with a Associates in Multimedia, Web Design from NEIT and still hound the white whale that is my novel in progress.
My brother has moved three times, changed jobs until he found one he liked and is now engaged to get married in January.
Parents are doing fine, my dad is into year two of recovering from surgery to his leg.
Friends have married and begun their litter of ragamuffins.
And, unfortunately, my creative partner of 14 years is no longer with us. I don’t like to say dead even though my mother, the nurse of 30+ years calls a spade a spade. Dead sounds too permanent, if a Brit, a puppet and a emo Jedi can come back as blue haze then so can we. I’d include that quote from The Last Starfighter but there’s enough geek in the paragraph already.
All I know is, tomorrow, I’ll be doing the same thing I was doing ten years ago…

[Doctor Who Review] The Girl Who Waited


This is a kindness.”
Science Fiction Television shows always have that one episode, Star Trek had Yesterdays Enterprise, the Mirror Universe(s) episodes, Stargate(s) had them, that one episode where an alt.reality version of the main character meets the main cast and for the rest of the show you either hate it or enjoy it.
The Girl Who Waited was enjoyable because it comes back to the main thing with the Doctor’s Companions: What happens once he leaves them? Or, they leave him. And, so on. While School Reunion brought the Doctor and Sarah Jane together, this time Rory fails to save Amy in time.
