One of my friends was in that. I'd seen him in their Brazil and Ghostbusters (technically the latter was Future Cinema, but I think they're more or less indistinguishable now), but I didn't get to see BttF (he also didn't tell me he was in it until the last week it was performing - he's not big on communication). » 11/21/14 7:44am Yesterday 7:44am

I don't believe there's such a big problem with the Star Wars New Expanded Universe being all inclusive. The reason being, I don't think there's a problem with writing stories that connect to already established facts. A good writer would take Jabba The Hutt and USE the fact that he was a circus clown, possibly… » 11/19/14 10:20am Wednesday 10:20am

Why is everyone English in these live action fairy tales? I mean, I'm English, and I loved hearing so many English accents in big films to start with... but now it's turning into a bland sheen across the whole genre (especially with it being nothing but RP). American accents work fine in these stories - Eleanor… » 11/19/14 8:02am Wednesday 8:02am

I've wondered for a while about the best way to a LEGO Doctor Who game. I doubt you could do individual releases by season, or even by Doctor. They'd probably need to start with a New Who release - 9, 10 and 11, with 4-6 choice episode/levels for each Doctor (matching the pace of older LEGO games with 15ish levels,… » 11/14/14 9:08am 11/14/14 9:08am

That was a VERY tactless way to nickname him Arsenal. Ollie didn't even try to turn it into a positive thing: 'He called me just a weapon in your arsenal.' 'Maybe you should be called Arsenal then.' Written down it reads like sarcasm, it's so poorly handled (a better line might have been 'You're your own weapon, your… » 11/13/14 4:30pm 11/13/14 4:30pm

You forgot Good Queen Bess from The Day of the Doctor. She and River take the total to two... you can arguably count the TARDIS (as The Doctor's Wife), but without that I think we're to suppose Susan's grandmother at one point (we've long since diverged from the novels' explanations), leaving one more for Moffat to… » 11/12/14 4:59pm 11/12/14 4:59pm

They're good, but I wish they'd done what Agents of SHIELD did with the Art of Level Seven, and had the posters online at the START of the week instead of the day of the episode. Would have been (as was the case with AoS) a great way to build up interest in the episode. » 11/12/14 7:28pm 11/12/14 7:28pm

Unfortunately it is something that has hit a few too many British series. Merlin was covered in unnecessary music, which was at best hilariously aggrandising (he's walking up some stairs! Ooooh!!) and at worst ruinous (plenty of emotional scenes were destroyed by the music telling us it was sad, when the performances… » 11/12/14 7:21am 11/12/14 7:21am

I understand the desire for new creations - particularly given that almost all of the finales to date have been based around returning classic monsters, seemingly confirming the idea that old villains are much more important than anything new can be. However, I do want the show to keep returning occasionally to its… » 11/04/14 7:25pm 11/04/14 7:25pm

It's embarrassment, generally, and a fear that finding a typical name could seem forced, so a lot of superhero films have tried to smuggle the names in: The Incredible Hulk did that with both 'hulk' and 'abomination', and Iron Man 2 halfheartedly used 'war machine' in a sentence just to get his name in there. It's… » 10/29/14 5:22pm 10/29/14 5:22pm

I think the crucial detail about whether Ward can/will be redeemed is whether or not he killed the agents in the van with him. The agents he killed last year were as part of his orders, and his only feasible way to complete his mission(s). He was just a soldier (for an inherently evil organisation, working for a… » 10/29/14 8:58am 10/29/14 8:58am

DC have the world's most famous female superhero, their third most famous superhero overall. Sony only have the one major superhero, who they've already used a lot; they might as well go to one of their (much lower tier) female assets next. Marvel (Studios)'s most famous superheroine is pretty much Captain Marvel, who… » 10/28/14 4:21pm 10/28/14 4:21pm
