Doctor Who complete reviews: The Waters of Mars

17 October 2011 12:17 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Scariest Doctor Who Yet! So promised the creaky Doctor Who Hype Machine when promoting the penultimate Tenth Doctor escapade, The Waters Of Mars. The Hype Machine loves this turn of phrase, so much so that it seems to make every alternate story “The Scariest Yet”. I mean, the recent Impossible Astronaut two-parter was touted as The Scariest Yet, even though it wasn't that long after The Waters Of Mars. Well if slow-moving skull headed men in suits is your scary bag, fill your boots. Heaven alone knows what would have happened if they described the 13th and 14th seasons in this fashion: “The Talons Of Weng-Chiang! The scariest story yet! Well since The Robots Of Death anyway...”

Warner Bros. Buys David Dobkin’s ‘Arthur & Lancelot,’ Nicholas Sparks’ Latest Novel, & Hires ‘Halo: Reach’ Writer For Action Rewrite

18 June 2011 5:45 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Warner Bros. has been on a tear in the past few days, buying material for new films and/or setting up screenwriters to develop projects for the studio. After the break, we've got info on the following three projects, each of which is quite a bit different from the others: The David Dobkin script Arthur & Lancelot, which (as you'd guess) is a new telling of the Arthurian legend, only with a new spin. The new Nicholas Sparks novel, The Best of Me. And Halo: Reach writer Peter O'Brien will rewrite the action film Line of Sight. First up, let's quickly go over Arthur & Lanceleot, which Wedding Crashers and The Change-Up director David Dobkin wrote as a relatively big-budget ($90m) contemporary retelling of the King Arthur story.
