Okay here's my Doctor Who fan theory: After Ace left the Seventh Doctor, he lost it for a bit, travelled to a medieval world populated by elves, dwarves, halflings and dragons, forgot all about personal hygiene, took an absolute shitload of hallucinogenic mushrooms and started riding around on a sled pulled by rabbits. » 12/10/14 2:05am 12/10/14 2:05am

My pitch for a new Star Trek movie. The Enterprise, on a mission of exploration, comes to an alien planet. There is something strange and/or dangerous on the alien planet, that triggers an adventure for the Enterprise crew. I know, it's out there, it's a bit crazy and unorthodox, but it might just work! » 12/08/14 9:48am 12/08/14 9:48am

Maybe at the end of this film Bond will have an arch nemesis, and so stop being a prequel and start being the James Bond we know! Y'know, like he did at the end of Casino Royale when he got his 007 status and learned how to wear a tuxedo. And at the end of Skyfall when he got Moneypenny and Q and a male M. And at the… » 12/04/14 4:01am 12/04/14 4:01am

Not seen this yet, so no spoilers, but saw the headline and thought "The Greatest in History"? They're taking on Whedon's Avengers? Wow, Arrow and Flash have really upped their game for this. Then I reread and saw the word "TV" and realised the competition consisted of that TV movie where Thor meets the Incredible… » 12/03/14 8:12am 12/03/14 8:12am

The thing is, if you look closely, EVERY story (particularly any story you'd try and tell in the length of a feature film) is an Origin story. For a story to be worth a damn the protagonist has to change as a person as a result of the hardships they undergo during the story.
Take one of the greatest non-origin story… » 11/27/14 5:31am 11/27/14 5:31am

Universal wants to make a shared movie universe. So far there is only one genuine shared movie universe- the Marvel universe, and if you look closely you'll see it's a universe of action adventure movies, not horror movies (Dr Strange? Isn't that the British TV series with the phone box?). The point is, if Universal… » 11/17/14 3:08am 11/17/14 3:08am

Only if it's a sucky episode. The Daleks hate everyone that isn't a Dalek, and want to kill them. The Cybermen don't have any feelings about everyone that isn't a Cyberman, but will try to make them into Cybermen. The Daleks are filled with real, overpowering rage that you actually exist. The Cybermen don't care that… » 11/10/14 1:38am 11/10/14 1:38am

Thank you for helping me avoid spoilers with the "Spoilers below" warning. With the headline saying a new Batman villain was turning up in Gotham, and that headline appearing directly above a picture of Scarecrow, and the introduction saying the mystery Batman villain will have a twist, in that they'll be the same age… » 11/04/14 4:48am 11/04/14 4:48am
