Just this guy that Rants and Raves about stuff. Also A Video Maker and a pretty hoopy frood.
Okay so my friend and I came up with a list of how to watch the River song Story, from when she was Born to when she died (rather than the other way around.) So here goes I will put notes where nessisary.
A Good Man Goes To War: Now this one is obvious, Why? because it’s her Birth and the most logical Starting point.
The Impossible Astronaut & Day On the Moon: Now with these episodes you can watch them Twice if you so wish. since this is a River song Time line Youngest to Oldest you can watch just the scenes with Young river then re-watch it for the rest of the story later.
Lets Kill Hitler: We don’t really see much of young River/Melody much after she regenerates in New York in 1969,
Closing Time (just the end): For this one you would watch the last few minutes because of the connection it will have to the Last Episode of the Series.
The Wedding of River Song: Self explanatory this is the next in progresshion of things
First Night & Last Night (minisodes) Now with this one you can watch it twice just like the Impossible astronaut and Day on the moon because of the fact that the episodes contain a few different Rivers but it takes place with the Youngest River just being put in prison and serving a lengthy sentence.
Now here is where you can re-watch The Impossible Astronaut and Day On the Moon and get the rest of the story for River’s adult point of view.
The Pandorica Opens & Big Bang Two : again fairly obvious.
Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone : Going backwards as you can see the pattern
Series 6:The Wedding of River Song (Just River Visiting Amy): This scene is just after the two prater from series five.
Angels Take Manhattan: This is about where she is almost ready to go meet her destiny at the Library, She is a Professor now and is close to her end.
Last Night (Minisode): This is where you can watch this episode again to get that little look at the fact that River is on her last Date with the Doctor.
Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead: The Doctor first Meeting her and her death. That is how it goes.
Name of the Doctor: It’s not over yet, There is one more episode where she is there after her death, Which is quite touching. But to date this was her last episode. Thus completing the time line of River Song Birth To Death.
I just realized something, When Russel T. Davis was head writer of Doctor Who (series 1-4 and specials) he essentially wrote (with out knowing) the Sci-Fi version of Twilight.
He has The Doctor a long living Alien who has seen so much, Fall in love with an 18 year old woman who he feels like he can’t live with out after getting to know her. Now obviously the story changes a fair bit between that and the end of there story, but if you look at it you can see the whole thing playing out like something Stephine Myers would write if she was in the position.
Now I know there are a lot of RTD fans out there, And I my self like a lot of what he did (that wasn’t Pointless romance between Rose and the Doctor) but I have to say that the romance sub plot between Rose and The Doctor was one of the most stupid things I have ever seen in a TV show that lasted almost the whole run of Russel T Davis. Here is the Brake down:
Series 1: Rose Meets Doctor and falls for him
Series 2: The Doctor has Regenerated and she falls for the new doctor before being trapped in an alternate reality.
Series 3: The Doctor pines for Rose while traveling with a new friend.
Series 4: Rose comes back and gets a half human Clone of The Doctor so she can have A Doctor of her own.
Specials: In the very last one The Doctor Appears to her before actually meeting her in his 9th incarnation and wishes her a happy new year.
This over laying plot to me just screams something Stephine Myer would write. Now could I be wrong? Yes. This is just how I feel.
Any ways I hope you enjoyed the read.
If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you
l tried really hard not to reblog this
Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.
Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?
Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die.
HOLD UP FOR A SECOND
ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN
THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON
WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL
HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY
AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY
HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED
HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET
A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER
BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH
IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’
BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK
ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR
AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY
AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT
IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR
IF HE MISSES THAT TIE
THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION
IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED
HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE
AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN
YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN
THAT LAST GIF
HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP
HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT
BUT HE SURVIVED
BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE
BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD
FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS
HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT
THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL
BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN
HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT
Okay this will have a lot of spoilers for the end of the Movie/Comic of Watchmen, if you don’t want to know stop reading now.
Any ways I know a lot of people have praised the ending of the movie version of Watchmen, And yes it is nice to see a more plossible ending. Saying that you have to think how big of a plot hole they had created when they made that change, a massive one that not even Mr.Manhattan could plug.
As ever one who read the comic knows, the movie ends with a Genetically altered physic squid dies and releases a massive physic shock wave that kills people for about a few mile or so more.
Now this is inturprted by every one on earth that aliens might try something like this again and they band together to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. Earth united, day saved from nuclear war.
But in the movie, Ozymandias uses a machine that replicates the power of Dr.Manhattan and uses it to hit one city on every country of the world, thus making the world unite to fight back against Dr. Manhattan. Now this seems perfectly fine, but on deeper thought you have to consider this, Doctor Manhattan is pretty much a God. He can’t really be destroyed, he is literally in distributable so how does the world uniting to fight against a god going to work? Not very well I can tell you that, they have no weapons, no plans, and no way of stopping him if he ever wanted to do it again. So essentially then ending is the world uniting over that, which makes no sense at all.
So when people that give me hard time when I say “I don’t like the ending of Watchmen.” I usually give them the cliff notes version of this. It’s a moronic ending and doesn’t actually work.
A Fedora is classy as fuck. The Trilby is like it’s douchey younger cousin that is easier to get a hold of but still looks okay if you wear it with the right fucking outfit .
You have been educated.
