When you think of James Bond, 007, Royal Navy Commander, Companion of the Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, Licence to Kill, you usually think of the cars or the suits or the beverages or the women or the gadgets from Q branch. You don’t think about what Bond wore on his wrist. However, Bond’s watches said just as much about him as his cars and toys.
To learn a but more about Britain’s most famous secret agent, we have a handy infographic for you perusal.
After a long wait, The Peanuts Movie is finally out! It’s also collecting fairly positive reviews, so it might be worth taking a trip down memory lane and channel your inner kid again. The other hotly anticipated release Spectre is garnering mixed results. Perhaps Skyfall just set the bar a little too high for the James Bond franchise. Anyway, let’s start off the ELO with Daisy Ridley, star of the upcoming Star Wars flick. She looks quite elegant in the latest shoot for The Hollywood Reporter. I can definitely see why the new trilogy would focus on her.
After the jump, China gets first dibs on Point Break, the Aaron Sorkin/Pixar flick that wasn’t meant to be, first look at the Harry Potter prequel/spin-off, some new trailers to check out including Warcraft, and check out a ‘deleted’ scene from Spectre. Continue reading
Thanks to giving out candy, I was late to the start of this week’s episode of Doctor Who. Thanks to the magic of a DVR, I was able to rewind to the start but I came in at the point where Clara was non-chalantly watching an abduction in a barely lit apartment. It was a pretty good scene to start on when you consider that it was aired on Halloween.
So was this week’s episode a proper Halloween episode? I’m not sure I’d go that far but I would say that it was a promising start to the Zygon two-parter.
It’s Halloween! Go out and put on your favourite costume and go Trick or Treatin’! Anyway, it is also a Saturday, so it’s time for another edition of the ELO! Fittingly enough, in cinemas this weekend is a b-horror flick to check out called Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Reviews have been less than flattering but it does have Halston Sage in it! Good excuse to go see it.
After the jump, Star Wars is not yet approved in China, Guillermo del Toro is not giving up on Pacific Rim 2, human characters will always be interfering with future Transformers flicks, the emotions from Inside Out react to Star Wars and allow Stephen Colbert to predict what will happen in the galaxy far far away.

While Doctor Who is a sci-fi show that evolved out of something that was originally intended to be a science and history show, it’s always been at its strongest when it’s a character study. Just look at the difference between last week’s episode and this week’s. The Girl Who Died was largely a comedy episode. The Woman Who Lived was a study of Ashilder and the downside of immortality.
I apologize. This week’s link off is a bit late. I just got back from vacation and sleep became my number 1 priority. I shall look into the issue of having the keyboard imprinted on my forehead in a minute. Anyway, The Last Witch Hunter is out and Vin Diesel is keen to launch another franchise. I wasn’t particularly compelled to see it until I saw Rose Leslie in it. Maybe she does have powers…
After the jump, Daniel Craig does not think highly of James Bond, no more high heels in Jurassic World sequel, Harry Potter is getting an eighth installment and Angels in the Outfield get a 30 for 30 treatment. Continue reading
The Doctor Who and Game of Thrones crossover game was strong this week. We always have that connection between the two series because Jenna Coleman is dating Richard Madsen (Robb Stark). This week, we’re going back to medieval times and adding Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) as a Viking girl. Okay, it’s not quite a proper Doctor Who / GoT crossover but it’s probably as close as we’re going to get until Littlefinger shoves Clara out the Moon Door.
