A Post-Postmodern Survivor of 1990s Pop Culture who uses words like "post-postmodern".Ask me anything
So I just saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Now, for the record: I have never read any of the Hunger Games books, nor have I seen the first film of the franchise. My only exposure was my good friend telling me a bunch of stuff that seemed a bit superfluous or, y’know, “been-there-done-that”. I blame reading Battle Royale at a young age (It is also one of my favorite films of all time) for my somewhat avoidance of the series. I never thought it was a rip-off, I just thought that it could never compare to “my” story of totalitarian dictatorships, forced murder, and the affect that violence has on a society as a whole.
So, my thoughts?
I just took five selfies and I’m not publishing one of them ‘cause I know I’ll hate them in the morning.
So I’m watching The Day of the Doctor? Well, Moffat is clearly going for what Gaiman did with the TARDIS sentience/ the character of Idris, and that’s not a bad thing. I think Time Lord Technology, if given sentience (and the TARDIS has always been sentient… Hell, she’s been down-right petty at times, if Witch in the Wardrobe is still canon) would always be a bit loopy and strange.
I’m not going to watch this all in one go, though. I need to get to sleep eventually!
Also, I am seriously, honestly, completely DONE with Fezzes and Bowties. DONE! DONE!!!
