The Prestige (2006) – Chrisopher Nolan

The Sci-Fi Chronicles book has been a welcome addition to my library, and I was delighted to see that the next subject for me to cover is director Christopher Nolan. I’ve written about most of his other films, and all the ones the book recommends previously, but for The Prestige, and one other film. So…

Things get a little more Lynchian this week, with a script by James Thorpe and directed by Lee Rose. Bo (Anna Silk) under goes her Dawning, by entering the Temple. She can only get out when she has the key in hand. We also get a little more hint of The Wanderer, while Bo (Anna…

This week’s episode sees Bo (Anna Silk) dealing with the incredibly fast approach of her Dawning, and ends with the fantastic image of Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) standing in a rain shower of tarot cards depicting someone (thing?) called The Wanderer, and leaving us wondering what the hell this has to do with our favorite succubus?!…

Lost Girl S03E04 – Fae-de to Black

First off… Poor Kenzi (Ksenia Solo). She gets the worst of it this episode, as she keeps trying to tell people about the infection/wound on her arm, but no one seems to have time for her. And then the episode’s ending! I thought it was especially cold when Trick (Rick Howland) says that everyone loves…
