Oh My Dr Who

Seems like it only started a couple or weeks ago and it’s already time for it to end. With one episode to go (the finalie to this weeks ep) it looks to be a fantastic end to the season.

Let’s just say that two old friends come back to play and as a world we should be very worried indeed.

I love the way Dr Who doesn’t exist in a world of its own, they make reference to other Sci Fi like the Jaffa Sun Fighter.

I hate the feeling of a series coming to an end, like a good book I want to see how it all ends, but I want to prolong it for as long as I can… I hope they keep Dr Who going. Oh and this episode features more of Torchwood… bring it on.

A Super Superman

Superman ReturnsAs always I walk into a remake (sequel) with a little hesitation. Would Brandon Routh be a good Superman will they bring a good storyline to us? How will Kevin Spacey be as Lex Luthor.

In the case of Superman Returns, I needn’t have worried. The movie was well made. Brendan Routh brought a lot of the nuances presented by Christopher Reeve in the 80’s movies.

The storyline was light on, but a good reintroduction for Superman to the big screen. He’ll be back for another round.

Parker Posey was a stand out in the movie, Lex Luthor’s sidekick and excellent comedy relief. And who can’t be happy with a movie featuring James Marsden?
As the movie is so new we won’t say much more about it, but as Craig points out, it’s not a short movie, so cut down on drinks.

Our super night ended with dinner at the Gold Leaf restaurant, a fantastic Chinese restaurant in Sunshine… the food was great, who can pass up a Chinese place that’s full and full of Chinese people, you know’s got to be good. Thanks to Craig and Mark for bringing this place to our attention.
