Doctor Who Ramps Up To An Exciting Finale

In the age of the Internet, it’s tough to pull off a legitimately surprising plot twist. Everything that writers try to hide from audiences will eventually get revealed, whether it’s through leaked scripts or photos from the set. That’s why it’s too bad that the big reveal at the end of the latest Doctor Who…

Benedict Cumberbatch has made a career out of playing quirky, troubled geniuses. Whether it’s the titular character of BBC’s Sherlock, or WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2013’s The Fifth Estate, Cumberbatch certainly seems to have a type. His latest plagued savant, Alan Turing, is no different. Cumberbatch’s performance in The Imitation Game carries the film….

The Bechdel Test was concocted by the eponymous Alison Bechdel as a method for determining how well a film represents female characters. Bechdel was a cartoonist who originally came up with the idea for the test as a joke. The test has grown to be far more than a comic strip, and while it has…

The world of the blockbuster was turned upside-down this past week. First came the announcement that Robert Downey, Jr. would be joining Chris Evans in Captain America 3 to kick off Marvel’s “Civil War” arc.

It’s a great time to be an avid fan of television. We live in a golden age of TV, where you can throw a stone and hit at least three quality shows. With networks like HBO, AMC and the BBC offering up programs that garner both critical and popular acclaim, there certainly is no shortage…

It’s fitting that a movie about a man’s ability to sing opera at the top of his lungs lacks subtlety. One Chance tells the (somewhat) true story of Paul Potts, an average Joe with a passion for opera. Much like Potts’ voice, the film is loud and bombastic. Director David Frankel revels in its clamor,…

Doctor Who has proven in the past that it can be a scary show. Despite its origin as a program for children, the show has evolved significantly over the course of its 51 year history. Series 8’s latest offering, titled Kill The Moon, does everything it can to scare the viewer; however, the end result…

American cinema has always been defined by its ability to innovate. Westworld, a small sci-fi movie released in 1973 starring Yul Brynner, changed the way movies would be made forever. It was the first film to use two-dimensional computer images, which would eventually evolve into what we now call CGI, or Computer Generated Images. Westworld…

Following last week’s rather unconventional Listen, it was probably a smart thing for Who-showrunner Stephen Moffat to return the series to its more formulaic roots. Time Heist, written by longtime Moffat cohort Steve Thompson, is an engaging, twisty, and, best of all, exciting addition to Series Eight, and it is easily Thompson’s best contribution to…
