Movie: ‘The Hobbit’ Production Video #6!

Posted 1 March, 2012 by Lianne in Entertainment / 0 Comments

I realised that I haven’t posted up the links to videos 4 and 5 but I pretty much put everything that I was supposed to do this evening on hold when I saw the link pop up on my Twitter about the new Hobbit production video! Am too excited for this, I love how Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis would point out that they were in a location where, a few kilometres away, they shot the following scene from LOTR 10+ years ago *happy tear* I can’t believe it’s been over 10 years since LOTR was in production.

But back to the video, I love that they were able to share these location videos with fans because New Zealand is such a gorgeous place. It’s definitely up there in my list of places to go one of these days! And I loooooooooooove that they used a snippet of music from the movie at the end of the video; LOTR remains one of my favourite soundtracks overall so I’m excited to hear what Howard Shore has in store for The Hobbit.

I know I mentioned this in a previous entry but this cast is awesome. I wished Richard Armitage had been able to talk for a bit for this video but yay for Martin Freeman and the rest of the cast xD

Specific thoughts (coherent and incoherent) after the cut!

Movie: Doctor Who (1996)

Posted 22 January, 2012 by Lianne in Entertainment / 0 Comments


While transporting the remains of the Master, an evil Time Lord, the Doctor suffers a TARDIS malfunction and ends up in San Francisco in 1999. The Master escapes and assumes a bodily form, the Doctor regenerates, and with the help of an attractive heart surgeon the Doctor must locate and defeat the Master before the turn of the millennium at midnight.

So, as I mentioned some time ago, I became a huge fan of Doctor Who last year. I haven’t really delved back to classic Who very much yet (pretty much been watching the revival series) aside from the special “The Five Doctors” and clips here and there but I was keen to check out the 1996 movie. Paul McGann is a fantastic actor (loved him in 1998’s Our Mutual Friend) and I’ve been hearing from the fandom at how unfortunate that he only got a movie. Well, I finally got around to watching it!

Spoilers if you have not watched the movie and/or not familiar with the fandom!

Television: ‘Sherlock’ Series 2

Posted 21 January, 2012 by Lianne in Entertainment / 2 Comments

So quickly it came and went. I love that Sherlock has a longer running time than most television shows out there yet at the same time it can be a bummer that with only three episodes a season, the series really goes by quickly. And what a season it was!

Spoilers if you have not watched the entire series! (apologies in advance if the following is a little all over the place–I tried to organise it as best as I could)

Movie: A Dangerous Method (2011)

Posted 19 January, 2012 by Lianne in Entertainment / 2 Comments

Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Jung takes on the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein as his patient, wielding the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud. Both men fall under Sabina’s spell.

This movie has been on my radar since I first heard of it in the pre-production stage when all the actors were signing on, complete with the actors signing off and dropping off. My best friend wanted to see it because it featured Freud so today we went and watched it. May contain some minor spoilers ahead!
