Tim’s Thirteen of 2013

So ends 2013, just like that! What a year! We have continued to grow and do so much here at The Mind Reels, and we’re hoping for an even bigger year next year! So I decided to throw together a list of the movies I most enjoyed this year, the ones that got to me,…

The Day of The Doctor – Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special

  Allons-y! Geronimo! That Mr. Moffat is what I call a Doctor Who episode to celebrate. While I wasn’t a big fan of the second half of series 7, there are moments and bits I like, just overall, it wasn’t the best, THIS showed what Doctor Who can be in the best way! From the…

An Adventure in Space and Time (2013) – Terry McDonough

  Even as I write this, the airing of the 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who ticks closer, and I cannot wait, knowing I get to see David Tennant, Matt Smith and John Hurt on the screen as various incarnations of the Doctor, as well as the return of Billie Piper as Rose (in some…

Doctor Who S07E13 – The Name of The Doctor

  Steven Moffat pens the 7th series finale, and I’m a little divided on it. A lot of it almost seemed overly sentimental, as if it were trying to pull at heartstrings, and that kind of bothers me. It’s all well and good if you earn it, but I’m sadly of the mind that they…

Doctor Who S07E13 – Nightmare In Silver

  If I had known last week during the teaser ad that Neil Gaiman was penning this week’s episode then all my worries would have been allayed. I just saw kids in the TARDIS and I was a little worried. I shouldn’t have. Everything in this episode seems to work on full thrusters, and so…

Doctor Who Christmas Special 2012 – The Snowmen

  So Steven Moffat brings us our annual dose of Who Christmas, as well as adding something else to the once-normal-but-now-to-be-feared list, and while the adventure itself is fun and features Richard E. Grant and the voice of Ian McKellen, its most enjoyable in its continuing quest to discover who is Clara Oswin Oswald?!? This…

Skyfall (2012) – Sam Mendes

  By the end of Skyfall there are some very familiar pieces returned to the board that is the James Bond playing field, which leads us to a bit of a cross-roads for the next Bond film (would you believe the story is already in development?!), I quite enjoy the grit and feel of Craig’s…

A Personal History of Me and Mr. Bond, James Bond

As Bond 23, Skyfall, draws closer and closer, and James had his cinematic 50th birthday last week, and I celebrate my birthday today, I thought it would be a little fun to look back on my own history with the world’s most famous secret agent. I’d like to say that I got introduced to 007…
