Re: "I HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE AND I MUST TALK ABOUT IT" Thread

Saw it last night (yes, finally!) Here's the quick and dirty: I really enjoyed it. Loved Asa as Ender. Loved. Loved the Battle Room. Loved the score. Loved the depiction of the final 'simulation'. Only real frustration was the lack of sense of passage of time. It really was breakneck speed through t...

Re: Doctor Who (yarr, there be spoilers here!)

The break until the 50th gives me a great opportunity to catch up on Classic Docs. While there's some great and imortant episodes, there's also a lot of... drawn out tediousness in the early days.

Wow. That was certainly a game-changer of a Season Finale.

The only good thing about the wait until the 50th Anniversary in November is that it gives me more...

I've been introducing my just-turned-3-year-old girl (February 18th was her third birthday!) to Star Wars, bit by bit. I weaned her in with YouTubed episodes of the old 80's DROIDS cartoon - which made her a fan of R2-D2 and C-3PO. From then on, she was excited to watch A NEW HOPE, because Artoo and...
