The Day of the Doctor Review: Long Live Gallifrey

Matt Smith gets the funniest introduction of him and his name

Matt Smith gets the funniest introduction of him and his name during the opening credits

Notice: this is going to be the least impartial review that I can possibly write. I was trying to be professional and talk about this objectively, but I gave up. I have been looking forward to this moment so badly that I have nothing mean to say. Continue reading

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Homeland, You Better Get Back on Track Soon

1450226_670437326310174_891321015_nI’m so furious with Homeland right now. It is like one of those friends who are always involved in some kind of trouble, and they tell you that they are going to change, and you believe them because you still remember a time when they were good kids, but you are too foolish to realize that they are lying to your face.

As if some part of me was expecting it to improve, but NO. This is NBC we´re talking about, and NBC doesn’t want to talk about those supernatural creatures that are so trendy right now, they want to talk about the Wall Street and Enron, yay!

Gravity and the Music that Revolves Around it

1400744_542416935834876_1948355879_oSurreal stories require surreal surroundings, and that includes the music. The best way of composing a film score for something like Gravity is to give it a feeling of science fiction, which is precisely what Steven Price does. Continue reading
