Doctor Who Episode 10.5 Oxygen

Doctor Who
Season 10, Episode 5 “Oxygen”
Directed by Charles Palmer
Written by Jamie Mathieson
Starring Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, Matt Lucas, Kieran Bew, Mimi Ndiweni
BBC America
Air date: May 13, 2017

Ah, now that’s more like it. After a somewhat tepid attempt at atmospheric haunted house horror last week, Doctor Who brings us a full-throated example of zombie horror in Episode 10.5 “Oxygen.” Drawing on a diverse series of film influences that use horror and jeopardy to entertain as well as launch social and economic critiques, experienced Doctor Who hands Charles Palmer (“Smith and Jones,” “The Shakespeare Code”) and Jamie Mathieson (“Mummy On The Orient Express,” “Flatline”) create a tense, kinetic episode that is much of what Episode 10.4 “Knock Knock” wasn’t and raises the average quality of the episodes this season to a very respectable place. More about the episode and its influences after the jump.

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

Taking Bill (Pearl Mackie) for a trip into space, The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is also followed by Nardole (Matt Lucas) where they find themselves on a seemingly abandoned space station. But after investigating a little, the trio find themselves in a precarious situation, that could have severe consequences… one breath at a time…

During TARDISblend 104, we celebrate writer Jamie Mathieson‘s return to Doctor Who delivering one of the strongest (and creepiest!) stories of the season. We also examine THAT plot twist (Spoilers, Sweetie!), and drill down into the acting force of Capaldi, Mackie, and Lucas.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

Dean and Sam (Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki) freaked out about new Cass (Misha Collins), who now has faith in the Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) spawn, so they decided to help the twins to take their minds off it. A witch made Tasha and others her dolls. Mary was suspicious of Ketch (David Haydn-Jones) about Mick’s whereabouts. She followed a lead and found Mick’s dead body, so Ketch trapped her.

Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword review header

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword
Director: Guy Ritchie
Screenwriter: Guy Ritchie, Joby Harold, Lionel Wigram.
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Annabelle Wallis
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 126 Minutes
Release Date: May 12, 2017

The legend of King Arthur has existed for well over a millennia, and as such has given way to countless interpretations of stories, TV shows, and films. So while we may be familiar with the name, there will always be a new way to look at the legend, a new way to tell the story, and a new way to rake in the cash. So just as superheroes are popular now, Guy Ritchie is giving audiences a reason to look at iconic literary characters. But while his previous efforts from the Sherlock Holmes films to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. may have been richly stylized and highly entertaining, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword suffers from a serious case of style over substance.

Game Review: Little Nightmares
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Little Nightmares #1

Little Nightmares
DEVELOPER: Tarsier Studios
PUBLISHER: Bandai Namco
RELEASE DATE: April 28, 2017

We’ve seen some impressive previews of the indie horror Little Nightmares, so I was excited to dive in and try not to die. Spoiler alert: I died. Lots.

In the game, you play as a tiny little girl named Six. And when I say tiny, I do mean tiny. She looks like she weighs only a few pounds, as you can see in the images. Small and seemingly helpless, Six is also all alone in this dark, depressing little world known as The Maw. Why you’re there, how you got there in the first place, why you’re alone, where you need to go—none of these things are known. You simply start the game by getting up, and beginning to make your way through this terrible place, navigating its many dangers on your journey.
