MovieWatch 2013

It’s time for my annual(ish) list of movies I want to catch this year. Strap in and let the trailers wash over you like pure adrenalin. (Not that I know what an adrenalin shower is like, ’cause I kind of think that would be a bit… icky. Though that’s not really the feeling I think you… Read More »

Doctor Who rumors

First, two rumors I hope are false… This first one I’m pretty positive is false, but here it is: apparently some bookies in the UK are looking for something to bet on (World Cup and Wimbledon not enough for them?), so they’re saying that since the current season of Doctor Who didn’t pull in the… Read More »
