I recently decided to finally jump on the Dr. Who bandwagon this Spring when after the first few episodes of the new season were getting some big buzz and I wanted to understand what the deal was since there is such a pretty big fandom. Outside of a random episode I'd seen last year, I never had watched the series before so this is all a new experience for me. Anyway, I'm three episodes in (the two part opener + the pirates episode) and it's been an interesting ride. I like the eccentricity of the Doctor, but I don't know how I feel about Amy and her keeping secrets or whatever is happening to her with the visions and her baby; and still undecided about Rory. There is a lot of WTF moments throughout the episodes but the Doctor and his clever solutions/revelations keep me coming back. That solution to defeat the Silence was so damn brilliant my mind literally was blown away. I'll try to watch more over the next few weeks and once I catch up I can now go back and watch all the DW episodes that are on Netflix Instant.
I don't think I've mentioned it on here, if I did my bad, but I saw Tron: Legacy recently and OMG! I loved that movie so damn much. I was really surprised with how much I enjoyed it, I hadn't seen it in theaters and had held off on seeing it despite having a copy of it on hand. But now after seeing the amazing visuals, I really wish I had seen it in theaters. I mean Blu-Ray is a great second best but it's no big screen atmosphere. I loved Olivia Wilde as Quorra, and the character's chemistry with Sam Flynn. I hope that if there is a sequel that it deals with the idea that the grid has been without a leader and it is up to Sam and Quorra to bring everything back together into the dream his father wanted originally. I also saw the special features and really liked the shirt Sam wore in the next day featurette. I've looked online and the only one I've found is this
but I can't tell if it's an official shirt or not.
Lastly, I just saw Knight and Day this past weekend thanks to Netflix and I really don't understand how it didn't do better in theaters. It was a lot of fun to watch. Sure, it's very unbelievable and over the top when it comes to the action but you have zany Tom Cruise with quirky Cameron Diaz and there was plenty of laughs to be had with some of those crazy scenes. Glad i finally got to see it.
