WHY FALLING SKIES IS MUST SEE TV

ONLY 3 EPISODES IN AND FALING SKIES IS SHAPING UP TO BE MUST SEE TV. DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF AN ALIEN INVASION BY A RACE CALLED SKITTERS, IT SEES NOAH WYLE AS A FATHER ALONG WITH A MASS OF SURVIVORS TRYING TO KEEP THE ALIENS AT BAY AND FIND A WAY TO SAVE THE CHILDREN FROM A DEVICE KNOWN AS THE HARNESS. WHEN THE ALIENS CAME THEY TOOK CHILDREN AND PLUGGED THEM INTO A MACHINE THAT LEFT THEM MINDLESS SLAVES OR SO WE THINK. THE PRODUCERS HAVE PROMISED NOTHING IS QUITE AS SIMPLE AS IT SEEMS AND THE ALIEN AGENDA WILL SURPRISE US.

HAVING READ AHEAD TO UPCOMING EPISODES THE TWO PART SANCTURY SEEMS LIKE A SERIES FINALE WITH A HUGE SHOCK ON THE WAY.

THE ALIENS ARE WELL DEVISED. EVERY CITY HAS A HUGE SHIP ANCHORED OVER IT WHILE THEY USE MECHANICAL BODIES TO PATROL THE STREETS AND GATHER MORE CHILDREN AS A WORK FORCE. THE HARNESS HAS SEEN KIDS TURN INTO MINDLESS SOLDIERS AND SCRAP GATHERERS AND THE ALIENS SEEM TO TREAT THE KIDS IN AN ALMOST PARENTAL STANCE. hOWEVER TO PROVE A POINT TO HAL THEY EXECUTED 5 KIDS AS THE RESISTANCE MANAGED TO RESCUE ONE.

THE STORY DEEPENED AS A WAY AHS BEEN FOUND TO REMOVE THE HARNESS, SOMETHING PREVIOUSLY IMPOSSIBLE AS EVERY CHILD DIED BUT THIS TIME, NOT ONLY HAS IT CURED ONE CHILD’S CYSTIC FIBROSIS BUT ALLOWS THE SKITTERS TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE HUMANS. WITH ONE SKITTER CAPTURED ALIVE AND ONE CORPSE IN THEIR POSSESSION THE RESISTANCE HAVE DISCOVERED THE SKITTERS EMIT RADIO WAVES AFFECTING MACHINERY AROUND THEM.

LOTS OF QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN RAISED, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE HARNESS, WHY DO THE ALIENS PROTECT THE CHILDREN ON ONE HAND AND KILL THEM ON THE OTHER AS A SHOW OF POWER? WHAT ARE THE SHIPS OVER HE CITY? WHY DO THEY USE TWO LEGGED MECHANOID MACHINES IF THEY HAVE SIX LEGS? WHY CAN’T THEY SEE CROWDS OF HUMANS YET LAY TRAPS TO LURE THEM OUT? AND AFTER THE TWO PARTER THE STAKES WILL BE RAISED. IN JUST A FEW EPISODES THE SHOW HAS ALREADY CREATED ITS OWN MYTHOLOGY MIXED WITH REAL HUMAN EMOTIONS. PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN IS FIRST INSTINCT FOR EVERY PARENT SO IT TOUCHES OUR MOST PRIMAL FEELINGS, IMMEDIATELY MAKING US HATE THE ALIENS FOR ZOMBIFYING OUR CHILDREN. ALREADY COMMISSIONED FOR A SECOND SERIES THIS COULD WELL STAND UP THERE WITH WALKING DEAD AS COMPULSIVE TLEVISION.

DOCTOR WHO SERIES 6 DETAILS REVEALED AND IT’S ABOUT TO GET MADDER THAN EVER

 

DETAILS ARE NOW EMERGING ABOUT THE SECOND HALF OF DOCTOR WHO STARTING IN SEPTEMBER.

WE KICK OFF WITH LET’S KILL HITLER. THE TARDIS CRASH LANDS INTO HITLER’S OFFICE AND THE DOCTOR IS FACED WITH AN EVIL WARLORD AND HITLER HIMSELF PLAYED BY ALBERT WELLING. RIVER IS BACK AND THERE WILL BE AN AMY CLONE INVOLVED IN A MOTORBIKE CHASE THROUGH THE 1930S WHEN A HOTEL FULL OF NAZIS FLEE IN THEIR UNDERWEAR. IT ALSO FEATURES A YOUNG RORY AND AMY, PROBABLY A FLASHBACK.

NIGHT TERRORS WILL FEATURE A YOUNG BOY, GEORGE, WHO IS AFRAID OF EVERYTHING AND SOMETHING NASTY LURKS IN HIS CUPBOARD. MAY POSSIBLY THE GIANT DOLLS EPISODE AND THE GIANT DOLLHOUSE. WE SHALL SEE.

UNOFFICIALLY CALLED THE GREEN ANCHOR THE NEXT EPISODE HAS A RED WATERFALL AND A NEW ALIEN CALLED THE HANDBOTS. LITTLE IS KNOWN ABOUT THIS ONE BUT IT IS SAID TO CONTAINA BIG TWIST AND SHOCK.

THE GOD COMPLEX BY MARK GATTIS FEATURES A HOTEL WHERE THE GEOGRAPHY KEEPS CHANGING AND BEHIND EVERY DOOR IS A NIGHTMARE. THIS MAY BE THE ONE WHICH FEATURES A SAD LOOKING CLOWN SITTING ON THE EDGE OF A BED WITH A RED BALLOON, A CLOWN THAT LOOKS SUSPICIOUSLY LIKE THE DOCTOR.

NEXT UP IS EPISODE 12 , A SEQUEL TO THE LODGER WHERE CRAIG AND SOPHIE RETURN WITH A NEW BABY BUT THERE CYBERMEN ARE BACK ALONG WITH THEIR PET RATS THE CYBERMATS. THE DOCTOR HAS A NEW COAT AND THE STETSON IS BACK WHILE FILMING VIDEO SO FAR SHOWS NO RORY OR AMY. HAVE THEY GONE?

 

THE FINALE, AS IAN MCNEICE TOLD US IN BELFAST WILL FEATURE THE RETURN OF WINSTON CHURCHILL. TWIST IS WE ARE IN AN ALTERNATE EARTH. YOUNG AMY AND RORY, RIVER, DORIUM, CYBERMEN,

ROMANS, SILURIANS MOST SPECIFICALLY SCIENTIST ELDANE FROM THE HUNGRY EARTH. OH YES, SOMETHING CALL THE SILENCE IS ALSO BACK.

“CROWDS LINED THE MALL TODAY AS HOLY OMAN EMPEROR, WINSTON CHURCHILL, RETURNED TO TE BUCKINGHAM SENATE ON HIS PERSONAL MAMMOTH.”

SO THE ROMAN EMPIRE NEVER FELL AND WINSTON IS THE BOSS OF EVERYTHING. WHAT HAS IT TO DO WITH THE SILENCE? WILL WE FIND OUT WHO SHOT THE DOCTOR? WILL AMY BE REUNITED WITH MELODY AND WILL ANYTHING EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN

THERE ARE FLYING DINOSAURS  WHICH YOU CAN’T FEED AND THE SCRIPT FEATURES AMERICAN JOURNALIST MEREITH GUEST IN A CAMEO, HER LINE IS CLASSIC AND INTRIGUING.

TRANSFORMERS 3 DARK SIDE OF THE MOON MOVIE REVIEW

 

AS MUCH SPECULATION AND ANTICIPATION TRANSFORMERS 3 HIT THE BIG SCREEN IN 2 D AND 3D. I HAD HEARD THE MOVIE WASN’T VERY GOOD BUT WHAT THE HELL WERE THESE PEOPLE WATCHING? IT CERTAINLY WASN’T WHAT I SAW.

IT MAY BE SLIGHTLY TOO LONG BUT I WAS RIVETTED FROM THE START. THE SPACE RACE AS TRANSFORMER TECHNOLOGY CRASHES ON THE MOON WAS CLEVER BUT I WONDER HOW NEIL ARMSTRONG AND BUZZ ALDRIN FELT WATCHING THIS(BUZZ WAS OK AS HE APPEARS IN THE MOVIE TO CONFIRM THE REAL STORY OF THE FIRST MOON LANDING OR IS IT HIS CHANCE TO PUBLICLY CONFIRM THAT THEY FOUND EVIDENCE OF ALIENS ON THE MOON? CONSPIRACY THEORISTS PROBABLY WENT INTO OVERLOAD.

THE STORY ITSELF IS VERY STRONG WITH THE REGULAR CAST GETTING MEATIER ROLES HERE IN A STORY THAT THE DECEPTICONS PUT THEIR PLAN IN MOTION AS THEY WAIT FOR OPTIMUS TO FIND AND REVIVE THE SENTINEL PRIME, THE LOST BEST HOPE IN THE WAR WITH THE DECEPTICONS. VOICED BY LEONARD NIMOY, SENTINEL IS A GOOD ADDITION TO THE UNIVERSE AND HIS BETRAYAL IS A SURPRISE. I LOVED THE STAR TREK INJOKE WHERE SENTINEL’S MOTIVES ARE REVEALED AS A TWIST ON AN OLD VULCAN SAYING.

THE SEIGE OF CHICAGO AS THE DECEPTICONS INVADE THE CITY TO CONVERT IT INTO A FORTRESS IS BRILLIANTLY DEPICTED AS HUMANS ARE MURDERED LIKE FLIES. AND PATRICK DEMPSEY’S VILLAINOUS TURN AS A COLLABORATOR IS ANOTHER SHOCK AS HUMANS ARE WILLING TO SELL THEIR SPECIES OUT FOR POWER UNDER ROBOT CONTROL.

AS THE AUTOBOTS ARE FORCED OFF WORLD, THEIR SURPRISE RETURN IS NO SURPRISE AS THEY AND THE HUMAN SWAT TEAMS TAKE ON THE DECEPTICONS TO RETAKE THE WORLD AND STOP SENTINEL ONCE AND FOR ALL BUT HIS PLAN IS STOPPED FROM AN UNEXPECTED SOURCE.

THE SET PIECES ARE SIMPLY STUNNING IN PARTICULAR SAM AND THE SOLDIERS TRAPPED IN A COLLAPSING SKYSCRAPER THAT TEETERS ON COLLAPSE AS IT IS RAVAGED BY A GIANT WORM LIKE DECEPTICON.

THEY SEEM TO HAVE TAKEN THE MISTAKES OF THE SECOND MOVIE AND BLENDED THE BEST PARTS INTO  A GREAT STORY THAT IS EPIC IN SCALE AND PUTS THE ENTIRE PLANET IN PERIL.

DON’T LISTEN TO THE CRITICS, GO SEE THIS MOVIE. I WILL BE HEAD OF THE QUEUE FOR THE BLU RAY.

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES IS COMING

11TH OF AUGUST SEES THE RELEASE OF THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, DETAILING HOW THE ORIGINAL APE RUN EARTH CAME ABOUT AND GUESS WHAT? IT WAS OUR OWN FAULT. THE SPECTACULAR TRAILER SHOWS A CURE FOR ALZHEIMERS USING A VACCINE THAT BOOSTS APE INTELLIGENCE AND BRINGS ABOUT THE END OF THE EARTH AS WE KNOW IT. I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ONE AS THE TALENTED ANDY SERKIS TAKES APE DUTIES ONCE AGAIN ALA GOLLUM WITH A FABULOUS TURN AS THE ENHANCED APE.

MATT SMITH TO SEE IN THE DOCTOR WHO FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY

ON ALAN CARR’S CHATTY MAN SHOW LAST WEEK, MATT SMITH REVEALED HE IS TO STAY WITH THE SHOW IN 2013 AND SEE IN THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS. HE REVEALED THE BBC IS GOING TO MAKE THIS BIRTHDAY A MAJOR EVENT AND HOPES ARE HIGH OF A MULTIDOCTOR STORY. HOWEVER CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON RECENTLY SAID HE NEVER VISITS THE SAME RIVER TWICE, INDICATING HIS ASSOCIATION WITH THE SHOW IS OVER. A REAL PITY IF THIS IS TRUE AS MANY WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE 9TH DOCTOR BACK IN THE TARDIS. WHO KNOWS? ANY IDEAS FOR A STORY TO CELEBRATE THE DOCTOR’S BIRTHDAY?
