Yes, it's starting to look like Christmas, and I've already had one gift exchange. Many thanks to the people in my life for getting me Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Notebooks, William Shakespeare's Star Wars Trilogy (I feel a theme coming), Cloud Atlas (the book), and Castle Panic (as seen on Tabletop). Cubicle 7 also sent me a second copy of the 2nd Doctor Sourcebook for DWAITAS free of charge, because the original had a slight misprint. That's above and beyond, it really is. In the "buys" category, I also got the subscriber's pdf of the 8th Doctor book, or as it should really be called, Time War! Plus, a few DVDs, including Lone Gunmen (so now I have everything X-Files related for when I want to go daily on it), Muppets Most Wanted, Closer, Thor: The Dark World, IT Crowd Seasons 1, The Shield complete series, and Arrested Development Season 4.
Time Travel Monday, I watched Safety Not Guaranteed again. I've got only a handful of films I'd previously seen on my list, films I wanted to revisit and share with friends. My original capsule review is still available HERE.
Romance Saturday, we watched Miranda July's The Future, a film I'd already seen (capsule review HERE) and that is only marginally SF (the third act plays with time and parallel universes in a poetic way), but I had friends who really wanted to see it. More than happy to oblige and it led to a very interesting discussion of its central theme, the inability to act (in the larger sense; it's not a dig at the acting).
