Donna Noble on Priorities
To the film director.
JUST LOOKING AT THE POSTERS MAKES ME ANGRY HOLY SHIT
DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON ERAGON
I still say whatserface did an amazing job with playing Mrs. Coulter. She was INTIMIDATING.
Can I just say, I feel like this is unfair. Like books are amazing because they can take us on these wonderful adventures and weave tales of mystery and suspense, and they have all the time in the world to it.
Movies are almost the same thing, and that’s why it’s nice when our favorite books are transferred into movies. It’s a chance to see if everyone else felt the same way about this scene and that.
Only the thing that most people don’t seem to understand is that movies only have, at most, two hours. You guys are expecting them to tell the same exact story in two hours. When some of those books are around 600 pages.
Some quick (and not very thorough) googling says that people read about 250 words per minute, and that there are also about, ironically, 250 words per page. So that’s about 2.5 days to read a 600 page book straight through. (Lets be honest, we’ve actually done this at once point in time or another). And that’s great. Sitting and reading for hours upon hours can be very relaxing and wonderful, and when you are done you can put that book down, do what you need to do and pick it back up and start again.
But that’s now how movies are watched. I personally can hardly stand watching the Lord of the Rings movies. They are just too damn long. And lets face it, if you pause a movie and come back the next day, something’s missing. Because that’s now how people watch movies. When you start a movie you want it finished in about two hour, any more and you’re going to get bored. And speaking of getting bored this thing is huge.
Now back on track. When books are transitioned to movies, you have to cut things out. Things have to be streamlined. Things need to get to the point and fast or everyone’s going to get bored. Now I’ve actually only seen two movies on this list, but the Host was a wonderful movie (not as good as beautiful creatures, mind you, because that was some angelic type shit going on there). And the Golden Compass (while I did have to ask my friend who read it for some clarification on some points) was riveting. I was spellbound.
So I have to wrap this up because I have to literally run to work through frozen weather, but my point is, don’t hate on movies because they don’t have everything you wanted in them. That’s absurd and like giving people coal and asking for diamonds. It’s not going to happen.
A’ight, so me and Kerreal are gonna be heading out to go see the Legend of Zelda symphony.
Just got back from Second Quest~
It was completely awesome.
(And rather informing for a fan who has played very little zelda games)
But between this and the 50th my emotions are done for the day.
I just wanted to wish you all a merry Turkey Day. Hope you enjoy spending time with your family.
War Doctor I would like to personally mail you a message to achieve two things.
Gallifrey stands. Forget that, wouldn’t want to alter history or some-such.
2) You next incarnations will be a bunch of three year olds.
Late night ramble post:
Work as utterly killed my ability to sleep like a normal human being. It’s just a back and forth between sleeping twelve hours a day and then sleeping one hour a day.
Isn’t life grand.
i thought this was figured out months ago….?
… Oh >.>
I’m secretly a time travel and as soon as I heard Tennet was in the anniversary episode I skipped ahead till now. So a bit out of the loop.
Well whoops, I suppose that’s what I get for only half paying attention to my dash at any given time.
I FIGURED IT OUT
IT MAKES ALL THE SINCE AFTER WATCHING THE EXTENDED TRAILER
DOCTOR WHO MAYBE SPOILErS
JOHN HURT IS THE DOCTOR FROM THE TIME WAR
DUN DUN DUN BITCHES
But It makes since, really it does.
That’s the thing that all the Doctors from New!Who regret the most. It would be the life they try so very hard to forget.
And he says “Great Men are born in the fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light it.” He’s talking about Seven and himself. Seven was there for the start of the war but then something happened and he became hurt. Then when he sacrificed all the Time Lords to end the war something happened to him and he became 9.
It’s the only part of his life that is ‘cloudy’. (Minus the fact that he a time traveler and any time he is not on screen should be considered cloudy). It’s the only time that we know, for a fact, to be vague.
So if we make the assumption I’m right.
Would that make the 50th the end of the Time War?
This mythical event that we have only ever heard whispers about. That have followed New!Who through out the series.
Do we finally get to know?
