"I am the Doctor, whether you like it or not" is a pretty ballsy line with which to end a story that was arguably the worst introduction of a new Doctor in the history of the show. No wonder this story was so poorly received.
"The Caves of Androzani" was every bit as good as its reputation suggested. It is definitely my favorite story from the classic series thus far and I can see why it is often considered the best story in the history of the show. Too bad it’s about to be balanced out by "The Twin Dilemma" which is consistently rated as one of the worst stories, if not THE worst. I hope it’s not all downhill from here.
Will American Ninja Warrior crown its first female champion at the top of Mount Midoriyama?
Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman ever to complete a city finals course, in Dallas, and the first woman to ever make it to the finals in Las Vegas. If she manages to conquer Mount Midoriyama she could win the $500,000 prize and the title of American Ninja Warrior.
I hate how much I love this show.
I happened to stumble across this on TV as it was happening and got far too invested in it. Damn impressive.
You have the illusion of “choice” at your local cinema this week. Which poorly reviewed release will appeal to you most? You could see Diaz and Segel’s Sex Tape and wonder why Hollywood is so perplexed by the cloud, but why would you do that? Don’t be self-abusive, we’re here to help. This is a safe space.
Oh, God, no, you’ve got a ticket to The Purge: Anarchy, too? Sure, that’s your best choice for a wide release this week, but RT still summarizes it as “never as smart or resonant as it tries to be.”
If you’ve got kids, we guess you could go see Planes: Fire and Rescue, the sequel to not-even-a-year-old Planes. RT calls it “flat and formulaic,” though, and shouldn’t we be teaching our children to aspire for more? Dane Cook stars in it, for God’s sake. Pop culture was done with him years ago. The final wide release is Persecuted, which does not have a single positive review. Ban wide releases.
The real take away from this article is that you don’t have to go to the theater this weekend to see a good movie, because there’s so much available on demand or streaming. In fact, if you want to see a good movie, don’t go to the theater, because the films releasing this weekend are all shit.
