Samson movie review

Standard

One of the newest Biblical movies, Samson is a story of betrayal, heartache and redemption.

 

This visual adaption is quite strong and absolutely powerful.
This review is based on a clip of the movie that was viewed. The images that this shows is of power. Everyone who has been to Sunday knows the story of Samson, and this does a really great job of showing it. The casting does a great job portraying the characters that they are representing. I have not seen the full movie yet but this is one that I cannot wait to see.

wishing-you-a-super-special-birthday

I am a proud Canadian, seriously. Hearing about this book and the history of the Church in this great country it  is a must read for Christians, for people who enjoy history, and it’s a great book for anyone who is proud to be a Canadian!

This book traces the history of the church from the start of this great land up to the present moment and everything in this book is just simply beautiful especially all of the photographs and images used within these pages.

It is definitely a perfect gift for any Canadian for this special 150 Birthday

It is definitely worth a 5 out of 5 stars!

Invitation book review

219742

When I first started reading this, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As I got into it though, it was amazing. I really enjoy stories, but I’ve never read a book like this with four stories blended to make one.

All of the authors involved take a character, and write their own book. This was originally 4 separate novellas but brought together in one book. It’s quite easy to read as you can read each “book” in a day. As you keep reading though, you might get sucked into it like I did. Where all the stories weave into one, but each story is different. The storytelling is absolutely beautiful. All of the authors are great individually but they have come together. It’s a story of a spiritual battle but done in a really great way. I would definitely recommend it for everyone to read.

I definitely give this book a 4/5 stars!

Dear Chris Chibnall and BBC,

Standard

In my previous post, I mentioned an article I was reading it mentioned that you wanted more of a younger person to play the Doctor and that you wanted to bring back the David Tennant years.

Here’s the most simplest solution – Bring back David Tennant. Now wasn’t that easy?

It also makes mention of wanting someone in their 30’s, so if that’s the case, then Tennant’s out since he’s 45.

Here’s another idea – Matt Smith. From what I read he really wants to come back. The Doctor has never had the same face twice. Series 9, The Doctor stated that he had chosen this face to remember. Why not make that a storyline?

A New Companion?

Standard

I knew that they were looking for a new Doctor, but just reading an article now mentions that Pearl Mackie, who is playing Bill, will be leaving at the Christmas Special. Trying to make everything new for the new writer. Here’s the link to the article, it mentions the companion near the end of it – http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/rumour-13th-doctor-a-dashing-male-actor-in-his-30s-83719.htm

Anyways, Here is my vote for who should be the companion – Osgood. I’ve been rewatching series 9 as I just purchased it on Blu-ray. Anyways, at the end of the Zygon invasion 2 parter, The Doctor asks Osgood if she wants to come along, to travel through time and space. You can tell that she’s very excited but the offer is declined, saying she needs to stay to protect the boxes, protect the planet,

There’s two Osgood’s though, the one that was Clara changed into Osgood the first Zygon Osgood was killed. So why not have the real Osgood travel through time and space with The Doctor and the Zygon Osgood stay on Earth to protect the boxes. Problem solved.

The Next Doctor

Standard

Since it’s been announced that Peter Capaldi isn’t going to be returning for a 4th series, the internet’s been running around with who should be the next Doctor. So many different names have been floating around. The last little while though, the idea of a female Doctor has been around, and hey they did it with the master. Certain Former Doctors have backed a different female, and I don’t want to be rude, I just don’t think any of the names would make a good Doctor.

Here’s my choice for a female Doctor – Catherine Tate reprising her role as Donna Noble.

If I remember right, if she thinks about The Doctor and everything she explodes. But WHAT IF, in the 12th Doctor’s dying days, the Tardis reaches out to her and she comes, she becomes the 13th Doctor, she would have both sets of memories and it would mske for anabsolutely crazy storyline, kinda like the Prisoner 0 thing from Matt Smith’s run, but something that would last over numerous seasons.

It would make for an amazing story.

Dear CBS, I just watched MacGyver

Standard

Before I start this, I’m just going to say that my twitter handle is @mynamejohn and I was kinda live tweeting it but not.

I had high hopes for this, and I’m being serious, because well, it’s MacGyver.
I can’t remember when or how I started watching the show, but I did, and basically have every season on dvd, minus one and haven’t really seen the two tv movies that were made.

Anyways, while I was watching this, I felt like I was let down, along with everyone else who watched the originals. Now I know there were a lot of comments from everyone, but I wonder how many of those actually watched the original and not just this? It seemed like a few of them did watch the original though.

I was actually debating about not watching this at all. Namely because of one reason – Richard Dean Anderson. Now, I know he’s getting up there in age, but he’s MacGyver. Or well, not because you’re trying to modernize the show and I understand it. But honestly, he could have been put in a supporting role as in running the Pheonix Foundation, maybe helping out Lucas Till. There was the car commercials from a few years ago (I think it was for a German car company) and they made a series of ads with Richard Dean Anderson reprising his class role as Mac along with his daughter. There was no Richard Dean Anderson so why would I watch it?

No I know you have to replace Pete for The Pheonix Foundation, and I’m guessing since it’s the same last name that she is his daughter?  Maybe they could co-run it maybe?

Also, it’s weird not seeing Dawson as a big guy, just the muscular guy, that tv wants now and doesn’t doesn’t care much about anything else. They just want to be perfect.

Another thing, please redo the intro CBS. You shortened the amazing theme music, taking out amazing parts and scrapped them. You did a better job with the Hawaii FIve-0 keeping all of that. Do the same just with MacGyver.

Talking about the main character, let;s talk about Lucas Till. I think the writing needs to be better, the whole show seemed more likea not great James Bond thing, and MacGyver is not James Bond whatsoever. So Dear writers, please fix this.

The popups when he’s working on what he’s doing need to go, especially the words. we don’t need to know that he’s working on the millionth paperclip to unlock something. It was annoying and kind of ruined things. Like that airplane scene, we know what’s going to happen, you don’t need to make us feel like we’re stupid and don’t know anything, let things play out.

A major things I think they need to do is not make MacGyver like every other CBS show. It seams like they have a formula  and what that formula needs is a team. Look at every other CBS show that has a team, and if you think about it, it’s basically the same show, just changing a few things here and there. Please don’t make MacGyver like this, because it doesn’t need to be. It’s kind of annoying.

Make MacGyver original, don’t make it like everything else. Make it modern while also still having the feel of the original classic.

And please, don’t make the character’s so tight, they need to loosen up a little, it doesn’t always have to be serious, which is another minus. THe original was serious, but also light hearted.

And it seems like every CBS show has the whole team at the end either going to a bar or having a drink, honestly, what I really want to see, and maybe others, but maybe just me, is that MacGyver needs his houseboat. It’s something that mad the show unique and it was just really cool.

Honestly, there is so much potential with this, and there is so much with the pilot that could have been better.

CBS, you really need make this the MacGyver that we all deserve.
