Cheesy Romance Month: Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

download (1)Okay… I want to stress that watching this movie was a fucking chore for me. Not so much for the movie itself. But because, due to my busy schedule, I was unable to get to the movies before it went out of theaters so in order for me to watch the damn thing, I had to watch a bootlegged Spanish version of the movie and then find a transcript of the movie on the internet. The lengths that I went to get this fucking thing are absolutely mind boggling. The fact that this movie did very little for me didn’t help either. I will stress that this may be because I had to watch a bootlegged spanish version on the internet has something to do with it. But ultimately, even if this was in pristine HD English, I feel I would have still walked away with a similar experience.

You see… I’m just not a big fan of Seth Grahame Smith, his writing, or his stories. I find both Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter to be little more than eye catching stories that are fun merely through novelty. While I do admit that I have not read the book, I did watch Dark Shadows and the movie version of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and what I got from both of those is that the script was utter garbage. Luckily, the producers behind this movie realized this and got Burr Steers (who I swear to god is probably a male stripper from Reno) to handle the screen writing. Ultimately, I was happy to see that P&P&Z was more than just garter belt wearing women slaughtering zombies. But what I got was still a slightly satisfying watch.

Tanner Reviews The Day of the Doctor

200px-Poster_Day-of-the-DoctorNormally I am not one to review stand alone episodes of a series. Well actually I’m not really one to review television period with few exceptions of course. But I felt that given the circumstances of this particular episode I can make an exception an give my thoughts on the 50th Anniversary of one of my favorite television shows, Doctor Who. From 1963-2013 the television screen has been graced with The Doctor and all of his amazing adventures… It is really hard to believe. But with a show as long tenured and popular as Doctor Who, I think it goes without saying that the 50th Anniversary Special needed to pull out all the stops… And Steven Moffat did not disappoint in the slightest. With the return of previous Doctors like Tom Baker, Paul McGann (in one of the prequels), David Tennant, and the new addition of John Hurt as the War Doctor, and of course the current Doctor Matt Smith… This really was a truly special experience for any Whovian.
