Doctor Who thing of the day: Doctor Who at the London New Year’s Day parade

14 January 2013 4:33 AM, PST

At London’s New Year’s Day parade this year, the Doctor(s) and a few friends made a special appearance: [image] A few closeups on the Doctors: [images] Photo by Ken Johanson. Eleventh Doctor impersonator Matt Elliott apparently convinced a lot of people that day that Matt Smith had actually shown up for the parade. More pix of the parade at Elliot’s Facebook page. (If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.) »

Beautiful Creatures (trailer)

14 January 2013 3:28 AM, PST

I am unaccountably intrigued by this. Writer-director Richard Lagravenese has been involved with some satisfying cheese (P.S. I Love You, Water for Elephants), so that gives me a little hope that this will be at least enjoyable, if also perhaps kinda silly. But the idea of a female version of Harry Potter or Luke Skywalker is nice, too. Of course, neither Harry’s nor Luke’s fate and future power depended upon romance, and neither of their stories featured romance as a major plot point. Still, baby steps... Also: I bet Emma Thompson and Jeremy Irons will chew up the scenery something fierce. »

question of the day: What do you think of the Golden Globe winners (and losers)?

14 January 2013 2:16 AM, PST

The Golden Globes were handed out last night. Let’s talk about the winners (and losers). A few highlights: Argo won Best Picture (Drama), with Ben Affleck taking Best Director; Les Misérables won Best Picture (Comedy or Musical); Brave won Best Animated Film; Amour won Best Foreign Language Film. Acting wins were unsurprising (but all wholly worthy): Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln), Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway (Les Mis), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained). Quentin Tarantino won Best Screenplay (Django). See the complete list of nominees and winners at Hollywood Foreign Press Association. What do you think of the Golden Globe winners (and losers)? Feel free to talk about the TV side as well, if you like... (If you have a suggestion for a Qotd, feel free to email me. Responses to this Qotd sent by email will be ignored; please post your responses here. »

Simply Awful... • About that Wash / Serenity link... Saving Lives in Serenity: Can a Fanboy and Physics Change a Movie? • Yes! Mt @toddwetzel: "the arts are a 4000yr old 'empathy hack' ".--Jeff Leitner #Apapnyc #ImagineThis • #Wtf Mt @polyg: Feature of Sunday Times on how to raise girls is in the Style section. Similar feature on boys is in the Body & Soul section • Which came first, the dumbing down of the American media or the dumbing down of the American public? Remember Newspaper Science Sections?

Doctor Who blogging: “The Snowmen”

13 January 2013 5:03 PM, PST

It’s “The Angels Take Manhattan” all over. It’s “The Snowmen Take London.” Steven Moffat has once again taken a bunch of would-be cool ideas and wannabe iconic images and random science-fiction-ish notions and thrown them all together to make a kind of Doctor Who soup. This isn’t a story: it’s a wibbly-wobbly fuzzy-wuzzy ball of Doctor Who goo. Lady lizard from the dawn of time is the “real” Sherlock Holmes! Would a Silurian say “Pray for a miracle”? Isn’t that not very not-human? But hey, she drinks a “refreshment” the color of red wine that is not red wine and probably not cherry Kool-Aid either, so we’re meant to infer that it’s blood. Vastra is scary! No, wait, she’s nice. No, wait, she’s not really any of these things. She’s not really a character at all. She’s merely a »
