rhyme and reason
A few bits and pieces that haven’t become their own posts.
A word on the Eleventh Doctor: Much as I remain ambivalent about Matt Smith, I am not best pleased by the fact that we have a young not-particularly-masculine white guy in the role, round three. I expected a little more diversity from Moffat; I’m not someone who really seriously thinks girl!Doctor is plausible, but I was really pulling for Patterson Joseph. (Not as much Chiwetel Ejiofor, who will forever be the Operative in my mind…) But no, we have Fall Out Boy Doctor, straight to the pages of Heat magazine.
That said, again, I am leaving my judgment on Smith himself open for now, which for my massive Tennant fangirling, is a big step for me. But if you too would like to donate to the Give Matt Smith Eyebrows fund, lemme know.
Talk about the Star Trek film has been quiet, but I did get spoiled for the plot, and all I can say is ‘why’. And JJ Abrams will throw entirely too many little details into it that I will surely miss, and…not looking forward to this much.
More talk has Shia LaBoeuf as a possible Yorick Brown in the Y: The Last Man films, which I just cannot see. LaBoeuf ‘s attitude is just too damn cool to be Yorick, who is anything but badass, and he’s just way too young. I got nothin’.
That’s the theme of this post, I guess. So many things that could have been done and we end up with this.
