Doctor Who Movie & other Nerdom news
*Wasn’t I JUST talking about this? It seems a Doctor Who movie may actually be in the works, Capt. Jack Harkness’ preferences be damned. David Yates, of Harry Potter film fame, is said to be directing. It is rumored, however, that neither Matt Smith nor David Tennant would be the Doctor on the Silver Screen. Interesting…
*Because people are capable of being both Geektastic and Politically Aware, someone decided to make an Occupy Legoland model. It’s awesome, of course.
* It’s finally happened: Mario has come to life. Over the weekend in Times Square Mario 3D Land was erected and, man, do I wish I could go play. I have to admit, though, that this doesn’t seem like it’s the right season to have this setup. Snow is coming soon, and who wants to jump over turtle shells and ride Yoshi in a heavy winter coat?
* The International Space Station just blew my mind. I’ve watched this a number of times already, but it simply doesn’t get old to me. The video is time-lapsed photography taken by the ISS and shows our home in a whole new light. I hope to one day see Aurora Borealis or Australis in person, but until that time this video does them incredible justice in conveying their beauty.
* Another Twilight is coming out soon. I don’t care, but Hallmark does. The last thing I want fouling up my tree is Kristen Stewart’s sourpuss face.
* And the full Hunger Games trailer is finally here.

The Doctor Who movie sans Matt Smith really ruffles my feathers. Yates came across as crazy pompous with his plan to make a movie removed from the show’s continuity. Nerd grumble.

I’ll admit I wasn’t thrilled to see Tennant go. I liked he and Donna Noble as a team. But once I watched Matt Smith in action he grew on me rapidly and I realized that not only was Tennant’s time up, but that we probably could have done without the Martha Jones series even. Not to say that Tennant wasn’t an iconic Doctor, he was fantastic, but the actors that play Who should have term limits. I am an American born and raised; I hate the idea that an American might be brought in as the movie incarnation.
