Doctor Who - The Complete First Series

First let me say I was not at all familiar with the old version of this series other than I knew it was on in the 60's and had a huge fan base. You do not need to have even heard of Doctor Who prior to reading this to enjoy this new BBC iteration of the series or to understand it (if you really want to know the entire Doctor Who lore however, a quick trip to Wikipedia will bring you up to speed)! I just started watching it (here in the States they are running Season 3 on BBCA and a Season 4 is in the works). This is my absolute fav. show. Dare I say I even love it more than Buffy. This new version of Doctor Who starts out with Christopher Eccleston (he also played Claude in Season 1 of Heroes and as a tip of the hat to him playing the Doctor, you can hear him saying "Fantastic" quite a bit, which is something the Doctor is fond of saying quite often) playing the 9th version of the Doctor here in Season 1. Billie Piper plays his companion Rose Tyler. While the aliens, other worlds, time travel, etc. is awesome, it is really the relationship between the Doctor and Rose that drives the show and makes it so, as the Doctor would say, fantastic!!

The Others is one of the spookiest movies I have seen. Even though when you reach the end of the film, you would want to go back to the beginning of the film to try to figure out when all of this happened to them. The director did a great job keeping us guessing. Also, it doesn't have any gross parts like other horror films do.

Every film he makes is in a different classic genre, and he encapsulates each one perfectly while adding his own twist to it. Shallow Grave was his first film and paired with screenwriter John Hodge and producer Andrew Macdonald (the trio would go on to make The Beach, A Life Less Ordinary and The Beach), he has created a wonderfully Hitchcockian stylish and suspenseful dark drama. Three wonderfully elitist yuppies (played by Kerry Fox, Ewan Macgregor and Christopher Eccleston) need a fourth to share their amazing flat. When their choice, the mysterious Hugo (Keith Allen) overdoses on his first night there, the trio find a suitcase stuffed with cash in his room and decides to dispose of the body, keeping the money for themselves. Then things get really interesting... It's a clever, excellently cast film about jealousy, ego and manipulations. The three leads are pitch-perfect and Boyle's eye for visuals saturate the film in shart angles, rich textures and lighting.
