caffienekitty: (spoiler)
There is a new trailer today for the upcoming 4th series of BBC's Sherlock that is reported to be hugely spoilery. Please exercise caution if you want to avoid getting spoiled.

If you are not a spoilerphobe, please remember to be considerate of others and put images and discussions for future series' under a cut. So far every post I've seen has been really good about warning for spoilers, but it's so easy to get caught up with excitement and let things slip, so please be considerate of your fellow fans' experience.
caffienekitty: (Mission impossible)
Today was half price day at the theatre so...


A few hopefully non-spoilery thoughts on Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

-There seemed to be more plot in this one? In a way that could be seen as either confusing or intricate. A bit like the usual Mission Impossible script took a brief trip through the "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"/"Smiley's People" car wash. Still fun, but more to pay attention to and higher stakes, so also more intense.

-Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg are rapidly becoming actors who I will watch in anything. THEY ARE AWESOME IN THIS, despite a bit of clunky direction in a few spots where the emotional transition for characters in a scene wasn't handled as deftly as it could have been and was a bit jarring, but that's just my film studies talking. They are great and there are some of their scenes I want to watch again and again (my watching notebook has many scrawlings of their character names with lots of extra vowels in them :-D).

-HEY J. IT HAS WAY MORE LUTHER. And after the opening credits the heights were less intense than prior MI films, and only in well-warned and avoidable ways.

-With the MI films after the first one, I'm not particularly worried about what happens to Ethan Hunt or what he's doing, but I care about the team. It seems to me that this film does too, and that makes me happy.

caffienekitty: (50)
This is a post of things I think I know about the 50th anniversary special without seeking out any spoilers or watching any promos, ads, or pre-release things, or having watched 7.07 and beyond yet (Aaaaa! O.O). Posting this now as there are plans and things in motion and my online access will be intermittent on the run up to the 23rd. Less than 24 hours from now. I am running out of time.

I will NOT be checking responses to this post until I'm fully caught up to current on the series, and I may not be checking it until after seeing the 50th anniversary, however if anyone is inclined to post their own theories/what they know, please keep any definite spoilers in the comments under a spoiler cut.


Here's what I think I know, based on things I have heard/run across unintentionally.

-McGANN!! YAY EIGHT! \o/ So, we're getting the 8/9 regeneration (except he's going to be turning into some alternate version of Nine because Eccleston didn't want to be in this, but whatever, can't be helped.) Anyway. 8/9 Regeneration, which means Time War and Gallifrey and the Master. YESSSSS. Also, that fic I wrote is about to get Jossed (Moffated?) but *handwave* It can be an alternate time line.

-Tennant, obviously. Ten might be a bit of a sulky boots, probably because I suspect he will be coming into this during that year or whatever he spent screwing around and procrastinating en route to the Oodmeet.

-First Doctor will be in it at some point, saw a note about there being an actor cast, so not CGI. Possibly him stealing/being stolen by the Tardis? That would be cool. Susan will be in it too. Or she damn well better be.

-Companions or events from the books and audios will appear or be referenced! Yay! I know this because giant text screaming "IT'S CANON NOW, BITCHES!!!! \o/" on a DW books/audios-related comm is kiiiind of hard to misinterpret. XD

-Other stuff I've either not noted or seen and forgotten and I'll keep it that way rather than wrack my brain.


What I think is likely.

-As much of everything ever as they can reference being referenced or appearing in some way, so watching the backgrounds may prove rewarding.

-ALL the Doctors in some way or other.

-As many companions as they can gather up, doubtless several with different actors because time passes in the real world, which often sucks.

-As many adversaries as they can cram in. But hey! Time War! Lots of room for all comers.

-Not sure how they could get Davros in there unless one of them goes and rescues him from the reality bomb business after the Meta crisis Doctors take off, but Davros being represented is a strong option.

-Key to Time? Maybe? Don't know.

-Just basically all the major bits and pieces, even as a quick reference. *boom* "Oh look, there goes a Zarbi ship!"

-Since I'm not caught up to the end of series Seven yet, I don't have specific plot theories, though, now that I've seen her introductory episode, I wonder if Clara's big weirdness with repeating through time and space like a fractured hologram isn't something to do with all this.



What I want?

Everybody. Everything. Listing it all would take ages, and the episode would be nine hours long. Which I would be totally okay with, but it's not happening so even a montage moment or two would be nice. Let's just say I keep thinking of things that could be included and either get misty, or make silly noises, or bounce up and down and flap my hands. A lot of randomly going "Eeeeeeeee" round my place lately.


What needs to be.

-Sarah Jane
-Brigadier

Because.



I will need tissues for this. SOOOOO MUCH.


ETA: CAUGHT UP TO 7.13 NOW! BRING IT ON, MOFFAT! \o/

Sigh.

caffienekitty: (rabbit of negative euphoria)
Various technical and scheduling glitches have conspired to harsh my squee and as a result I haven't watched tonight's "Agents of SHIELD" or the Supernatural Season 9 premiere. Until I have a chance to watch them, I'll be stepping gingerly about the place avoiding spoilers. So no change from last year, really. :-P

Arg.

Please consider the spoiler-phobes on your f-list and use a cut or a spoiler-tag when you post information about developments of any sort that will directly effect unaired episodes of any TV series.
caffienekitty: (ooopsie!)
So, as some of you may have noticed, I'm not even close to caught up on watching the back log of episodes before the Supernatural Season Seven finale tomorrow later today. I'm on 7.17, still working through them at the pace life is letting me get to them. I'll be scanning the f-list with one eye closed until I get fully caught up and see the finale, but I hope you all enjoy the hell out of it.

But don't tell me anything, okay? ;-)

I've altered the wording on the spoiler policy on my sidebar a bit, from "until it's aired in North America" to what you see there now. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to post anything at all about Sherlock Series 2 until May, and I am pretty sure that simply will not be possible. ;-P

That said, I will be lj-cutting anything I do post referring to Sherlock Series 2 with extra paranoia for a couple months in deference to those lurking around here that won't or can't watch it at UK pace.

Now, New Years! Very soon I'm off on a short road trip to spend New Year's Eve with friends (and then drive back at some ridiculous hour of the morning so I can be home to medicate and deal with the cat, blah) so I'll wish you all a Happy New Year now, whatever side of the calendar you're on.

*confetti*

caffienekitty: (dr horrible - status not quo)
As some of you know, my work schedule at this time of year, the last two weeks of April in particular (Canadian tax season goes later than U.S. and parts of it stretch on until June) is insane. In fact, today is the last day I won't be at work (for a period of 10 or more hours each day) until about May 8th, at which point I go back to getting one day away from work per week, yay, and all the backlogged other work stuff that's been put off due to tax season comes thundering down on my head.

What this means for the fun parts of my life is, well, I have none. Or at least very few.

How this will affect the posts I make or don't make over the next few weeks, if anyone's interested. )

In short, for the next while, this LJ will be mostly boring and whiny. I hope you all stick around for when I get small portions of my life back in May and can hopefully be interesting again.

*crossing fingers* for a SPN 6.17 reaction post today,(ETA: It's up!) and in the meanwhile *hugs* for everyone.
