Things My Father Got Us

For Christmas. So earlier today the three of us (myself, Carly & my Dad) traveled from mall to mall. Picking up gifts for the Hobbits and other family members. My Father got us a copy of Ticket to Ride and the 4th Doctor’s(Tom Baker) scarf :). Was rather shocked and happy.

Been after this game for awhile now. It’s odd, you’d think this would have been the first game to pick up. But no haha. Yay! This means more tabletop nights!

‘Star Trek 3′ Loses Director

Originally posted on Holy Flick Movie News:

Roberto Orci signed on to direct the 3rd installment to the Star Trek franchise last year after J.J. Abrams left to do this little project called Star Wars Episode 7. Orci had previously written the first two Star Trek films, but has no director experience. No reason given yet why he dropped out, but the franchise will be on the hunt for a new director to helm the 3rd movie. I believe that they shouldn’t make the 3rd one. I LOVED the first two, but JJ Abrams created that universe. I know Paramount is only caring about the money to be made, but I think it might be a mistake to rush it and get another director with very little to no experience. -CK @HolyFlick @CanOnTheCounter

The painful what-if that haunts ‘Ghostbuster’ Ernie Hudson

Originally posted on Inside Movies:

Ghostbusters has been an undeniable highlight in Ernie Hudson’s long, varied, and still-rolling career. But the experience of playing Winston Zeddemore—the fourth Ghostbuster, for lack of a better title—is also riddled with complicated emotions. Co-starring in one of the greatest comedies in movie history gave Hudson cinematic immortality—but it also lingers in his mind as a painful what-if.

On the film’s 30th anniversary, the 68-year-old actor writes about his bittersweet relationship with a beloved franchise.

I look back on Ghostbusters in a very fun way, but it’s got so many mixed feelings and emotions attached to it. When I originally got the script, the character of Winston was amazing and I thought it would be career-changing. The character came in right at the very beginning of the movie and had an elaborate background: he was an Air Force major something, a demolitions guy…

My Take On The Series 8 of Doctor Who

So this will be my take on the series 8 of Doctor Who. Personally I wanted to wait until everyone got whatever feels out before I wrote my piece.  I know there’s a lot of people that are confused or felt disappointed by the season/series or they just don’t like the new Doctor because he’s not Matt Smith.

Personally I wasn’t a big fan of Matt Smith  after he took over for David Tennant. I did however enjoy him later on in the series, but only halfway through his reign. Mostly I thought that Matt Smith was to child like in the beginning. But it did seem that his Doctor matured over time and I started to enjoy everything.  I personally rather enjoy Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Reminds me of mix with the War Doctor and David Tennant’s Doctor. So as for the whole season and it’s made very clear in the very first episode. As the 12th Doctor comes into being he is confused, insecure not sure who he is or what he is. What kinda person “who”  he wants to be or how he was. Dealing with Clara’s memories of Matt Smith’s Doctor and constantly comparing the 2 of the other. The whole series was about self discovery for the Doctor and the way the finale plays into that was rather beautiful. Having flashbacks from Matt Smith’s storyline, also from past story lines from this series. At the very end the Doctor comes a conclusion who he wants to be and how he is. http%3A%2F%2F38.media.tumblr.com%2F63599604fe7e0c4eee5c36c13d877774%2Ftumblr_neqqa9avPV1qltj2qo1_500

I enjoyed that they brought back the Master aka Missy. I thought Michelle Gomez did an amazing job and the humor was spot on! The Missy reveal infuriated and delighted Whovians. It sadden me to see that some of the fans of the show were upset at the fact that they pulled a sex change (in every previous incarnation, the Master was a man). Personally I see it as a why to move forward for a possible move for making the next Doctor a woman. Might be a trail run to see how people respond to a gender-swapped Time Lord. Maybe.. Who knows in the Doctor Who’s world. All tho! Though it had previously been established in the Neil Gaiman-penned episode “The Doctor’s Wife”.

I can’t wait till the Christmas special and next Series! I’m happy with the Doctor and where they are going with it.
