I'm also in disagreement with the rating but it'd be a terrible waste for either party, so those pistols would be better in their holsters.

Doctor Who's not really a movie. And regardless of budgetal constraints, I still think the franchise should stop making the aliens look so silly.

Mmm, I'm sure they'll realise soon that having goofball looking aliens is no way to run a massively successful cult TV show, famous for the last sixty odd years for having goofball aliens.

No, I think evening is reserved for stealing stuff from mythical creatures.

Yeah, but that's what it is. A cult show.

and truly there is nothing as shameful, horrifying, and deeply unsuccessful as that

I feel like the odds that Canopus just watched the first two or three episodes of the reboot and stopped there are pretty high.

The writing pulled me in for five seasons. It could do more for the genre.

For a little context on where I'm coming from, I've shown Sinfest to other people and they couldn't stand the anime influenced style. It's a shame because its potential audience is put off by great storytelling.

Canopus, I'm up & down on Who, love a lot of it, hate a bunch of it, but whilst being a 'cult show' it is also the centre piece of the BBC's light entertainment schedule for the entire year. It takes centre stage on Xmas day, ffs, the biggest TV watching day in the British calender.

I watched Looper tonight. I made a joke on fb about the finger losing scene, but more because I wanted to remind a certain girl that we had done the nasty in the not-to-distant pasty, and I knew she was online right then. (For fb friends, no, it is certainly not the girl who replied to that update, she's such a sweet, lovely, darling, heavily pregnant, platonic female friend).

But terrible jokes about masturbation aside ...

Looper should have won all the awards.

Mama
fuckin' scary, that was. I loved it. You have to pay attention to the little things going on around the characters.

They are making a doctor who movie, if you haven't heard. I think it's supposed to be some big hollywood blockbuster, so pretty much it's gonna suck. you'll probably get you realistic aliens, though.
