What are you watching?
Child Of Auron
My copy of Shada turned up today. I got to the mid point and had to stop because I was falling asleep.

Seeing it movie format has made me realise there isn't much that actually goes on and there is a lot of padding.

Although it's great to see it, almost, complete I do wish they had kept it episodic. And why not have the Tom Baker 70s theme on the title sequence????

Have to say I am disappointed, it does feel like a fan made movie produced by someone who didn't really know what Doctor Who was about in the late 70s.

However, I am tired after only a couple hours of sleep last night so I may enjoy it more when I am fully awake

Started watching Outlander, episodes 1 and 2. Interesting so far but it does have that romance novel feeling about it....

"The Big Lebowski", to celebrate the Dude's birthday. Smile

There are three different Shada reconstructions of note. One is an animated reconstruction voiced by Paul McGann. Another is a partial reconstruction with Tom Baker narrating. The one I'd recommend is the Ian Levine reconstruction which seems to have the most real footage shot for the episode and seems stitched together in a way that resembles the flow of a normal complete Tom Baker episode. It was probably on one of the boxsets on an Extras disc.

I finished Shada tonight.

Admittedly I did enjoy tonight's second half - maybe because I finally got a decent night's sleep. Or maybe because there was far more "new" material to see and hear.

I still am disappointed that it wasn't episodic, especially as the incidental music ramped up at each "cliffhanger" and Doctor Who was made as 25 minute episodes with cliffhangers so watching them in movie format can feel a little disjointed.

I still think I prefer the 1992 VHS release if only for the way Tom delivered the line "Romana was appalled!"

"Flash Gordon", complete with cheesy but awesome Queen soundtrack and the inimitable BRIAN BLESSED, to celebrate its 37th anniversary. Smile

He gave the first series of Black Adder a welcome injection of quality acting and was memorable as the Cygnus Alpha prison leader.
Any project is made epic if Brian Blessed is in it.

Going through a Chris Barrie phase (I met him twice at Red Dwarf conventions - one in 2013 and another in 2015, and he remembered me both times... AND was the only one who pronounced my name correctly) - in addition to RD, I'm looking at his work in his early impressionist years and his other major success, The Brittas Empire.

"Judgement at Nuremberg", Stanley Kramer's 1961 classic courtroom drama starring Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster and a scene-stealing Maximilian Schell in a role which won him an Oscar.

The new Ghostbusters movie. I kind of feel sorry it flopped and that it was such a mess. Because I kind of liked it. It had a good thought, actors enjoyed it but for something that has been in development for so long, it looked like a kid with scissors got into editing room. So much physical unfunny humour....and Kristen Wiig felt like all over the place. I normally like her but Melissa McCarthy - who I canīt stand in her other movies because of that infantile humour - felt like the most grounded of them all. Chris Hemsworth should get his own comedy, he was hilarious.

Just watched "Chimes at Midnight" the 1965 Orson Welles Shakespeare pastiche which highlighted the life of John Falstaff. Shot in black and white, Welles did very well as Falstaff. Excellent cinematography too.

I guess this one of those YMMV kind of thing.

Critically successful and pulled in large numbers of casual viewers..

Shame the "fanboys" had to pull the "Snowflake card" and bombard the review sites with negging.

One of the most stupid "concrits" I saw about the movie referred to Hemsworth removing his shirt for a scene which was purely as fan-service and didn't move the plot along.

Something the MCU had avoided. Thor never had a gratuitous topless scene


cos I'm not sure why he was topless in Thor( Jane takes Donald Blake nametag from t-shirt), Thor TDW( Thor washes without a shirt and broods over Gotham City)and the Avengers AoU( Thor skinny dips into the mystical pool about his visions)..all those scenes didn't require a topless fan-service Hemsworth..Pleasant though he is to look at.

I am not sure it made enough money to justify a sequel, though.
I thought if they left out all the "haha, ghost vomiting green stuff" scenes it would have worked much better.
But the hate is unjustified. I only felt it wasted its potential because they got really cool new toys and the idea of them actually working in secret (for the government) was a good one.
But it really needed a more skilful director who was not a specialist for silly party comedies but maybe someone who could work with fantasy elements a bit more.
Characters worked well and actresses were really good (except Kristen Wiig really had some scenes that came out of the "awkward to embarassing that should be funny but isnīt" concept).
It felt like they didnīt know if they were filming a movie about women at the party or fighting ghosts

But the scene where they DID fight ghosts was really great. Shame it was the only memorable one.
Cool cameos, too.

Klenotka...I believe you are correct about the film not making enough to get a sequel.

Yay Ozzy..


I really need to watch it again. I took the kids to see it when it first came out simply because it was summertime and I was going to be in Montreal and wanted to treat them. * The three of them enjoyed the movie so it worked for me.

One of the children's networks showed both of the original movies in Canada a few months ago and my kids watched them. The girls were horrrifed by the men's attitudes towards the women's characters. Especially the scene where one of the men had a small botttle of liquid which was intimated to be a date rape drug..


* we live approx 100km N of Montreal so going to see a movie we can all enjoy requires going down to the city so we can see it in English. I've done some kids movies in French (Tangled, Frozen) but I find it hard to keep up with the dialogue. It's hard tryiong to find a movie that at least 2 of us can enjoy since they used to hate super hero movies(post Wonder Woman, that's changed!) they don't like (Star Wars).

I'm going to take them to see Jumanji 2. I haven't seen much hate from the Fan-boi's yet...

"Judge Dredd", the ill-fated live-action version from 1995 starring Sylvester Stallone. It's not THAT bad a movie (they took a LOT of creative liberties compared to the source material), it's OK - kind of like a semi-follow-up to "Demolition Man".

I watched Star Trek: Renegades, (the Pilot episode) on Xmas Eve. I think my brother summed it up quite well: The Star Trek franchise does B7.

We've been watching the all-week marathons of Doctor Who on BBC America, and Mythbusters on the Science Channel.
