  1. I haven't been a fan of Michelle Gomez's Missy before (well played but annoying), but (except for a few exaggerated bits of cheap humour here and there) I really like her in this series. It was clear that he had to be someone, which makes me wonder why I didn't get it until he started giving hints.
  2. Good one (although I hated the "Doctor Who" banter at the beginning), with a suitably dramatic climax. Loved how Gold let the Master bits creep into the score in the finale. Also, some very obvious emphasis on the Master having changed gender, and the Doctor not (curiously) remembering that he never has so far. More hints for a female Thirteen, or just a red herring?
  3. I can honestly say that when I watch the film, I fail in trying to remind myself that I'm watching an actor and not the actual Abraham Lincoln.
  4. I still haven't seen There Will Be Blood or My Left Foot, but the performances I have seen by DDL have always been very good. His performance in Lincoln is one of the best I've seen.
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication
  6. I liked it quite a bit. As far as monster of the weeks episodes go, it was pretty good I thought. Plus some nice ideas, good humour ("I probably just get interrupted"), and once again Capaldi in top form.
  7. Admittedly, I've only seen it once. But after having had an audio cassette version as a child that terrified me so much that I kept skipping the beginning side B (where the mother is shot), when I finally watched the film a few years ago I found it lacking in story and poorly paced. There's a brief exciting sequence in the finale, but it's over before it really gets going. It didn't help that I found the songs too much on the cheesy side. As a display of animation, it's of course gorgeous.
  8. It looks amazing, but it doesn't work for me as a film.
  9. Fascinating. Looks like they're packing this full with all the material they can find, in any case.
  10. While we're at it (I might have posted this before): The Karajan recording is even more badass than this, but I can't find it on YouTube. ...and the cool thing is, it's all just leitmotifs stacked on top of each other in counterpoint.
  11. Even cooler than this is the prelude to the second scene of the same act. One of my favourite orchestral Wagner bits. Amazing recording by Kempe with the Vienna Philharmonic, by the way. Stunning acoustics at the Sophiensäle.
  12. I never knew that. Interesting! But Prima had a role in The Jungle Book. What's his connection to Robin Hood?
  13. Louis Prima Bonus Tracks? How did those come about?
