Sylvester McCoy Rubbishes Suggestion That 'Doctor Who' Can Be Played By A Woman


Sylvester McCoy Doctor Who Karen Gillan Paul McGann

Former ‘Doctor Who’ actor Sylvester McCoy has dismissed the idea that the time-travelling hero could be played by a woman, and that he’s “not convinced by the cultural need” for the role to be re-cast in such a way.

The 71 year old actor, who played the seventh incarnation of the Time Lord between 1987 and 1989, finished his stint in the role in the 1996 movie in which he was replaced by Paul McGann, believes that giving the lead role to a female would upset the chemistry in the scripts.

Time Lord Shocker! Peter Capaldi Once Turned Down 'Doctor Who' Audition


Peter Capaldi Paul McGann

He may be The Doctor now, but back in the mid nineties Peter Capaldi says he turned down the chance to audition for the time travelling character’s eighth incarnation.

peter capaldiPeter Capaldi could have been The Doctor much sooner (maybe)

Speaking during an event in London to launch the new series eight DVD, Capaldi a long time 'Doctor Who' fan said, "I never campaigned to be Doctor Who. In fact, I turned down the opportunity to audition for an older Doctor Who, in the one that Paul McGann did.”

Paul McGann Returns To Doctor Who For Pre-Anniversary Short, Fans Renew Hope For More Cameos


Paul McGann Sylvester McCoy David Tennant

The excitement for next week’s Doctor Who 50th anniversary is almost at its peak, especially after the special mini-episode that was released yesterday. As if in response to fans’ worries that the 50th anniversary wouldn’t pay proper homage to DW history, Paul McGann, aka the eighth Doctor pops in to save the day aboard a crashing ship. Because, you know, that’s pretty much the Doctor’s shtick. And boy is it exciting to see him.

Faces of Doctor Who
Matt Smith and David Tennant were confirmed a while ago, but the involvement of all other Doctors was a guessing game until now.

After some actors, who have previously played our favorite Time Lord, denied any involvement in the anniversary, people were beginning to worry. Recently Colin Baker, who played the sixth Doctor, explained in no uncertain terms that he had not been asked to reprise his role in the special.

Gypo Review


Excellent
Dogme 95 arrives in a dank and chilly British seaside town in Gypo, writer/director Jan Dunn's stripped-down Rashomon-like tale of lives that collide in both fortunate and unfortunate ways.

Helen (Pauline McLynn) is a miserably frustrated 40-something housewife, coping with a brutally distant husband Paul (Paul McGann) and a truly awful daughter Kelly (Tamzin Dunstone), a young and foul-mouthed unwed mother who has turned Helen into her all-day babysitter. Helen's one attempt to carve out a bit of a life for herself by taking scupting classes is mocked by both husband and daughter.

Afraid Of The Dark Review


Grim
Sure, I guess blind people can be scary to a little kid, but this baffling attempt at using that setup as the premise for a horror film goes utterly nowhere. The problems begin with frame one, with a kid (Ben Keyworth) who lives with cop dad (James Fox) and blind mom (Fanny Ardant), who teaches at a school for the blind. There's some kind of serial killer on the loose (preying on blind people), and it ends up being Lucas -- a budding voyeur -- to try to solve the case. Er, sort of. Wandering and overly symbolic, this is one mess of a film that ends up making little sense at any point along the way.

Alien 3 Review


OK
Since Alien and its sequel Aliens received universal praise, Fox just had to make a trilogy (which later became a quadrilogy). Trilogies (and especially quadrilogies) can pose some risk since a premise can lose its edge and outlast its welcome. Ironically, Alien 3 doesn't suffer from the trilogy syndrome as much as it suffers simply from bad writing.

Alien 3 continues with the series tradition, beginning exactly where Aliens concluded. When we left Lt. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the android Bishop (Lance Henriksen), Cpt. Hicks (Michael Biehn), and Ripley's surrogate daughter Newt (Danielle Edmond), they managed to destroy the creature, board a spacecraft, set course for Earth, and fall into deep sleep. Unfortunately, another alien has found its way onboard with them.

The Queen of the Damned Review


OK
Most horror movies are all flash, action, and plenty of screaming. The Queen of the Damned is no exception to the rule, despite attempts to become something more, but it still manages to deliver a fair bit of vampire fun.

The Queen of the Damned stars Stuart Townsend as the vampire Lestat, a character first made popular in film by Tom Cruise in the engaging Interview With the Vampire. This time around, Lestat has risen from his slumber again, intent on making his mark. Tired of hiding in shadows, he starts a career as a rock star, much to the ire of his maker Marius (Vincent Perez). But the anger of the world's vampire covens is the least of his problems when his music awakens the mother of all Vampires, the all-powerful Queen Akasha (Aaliyah).

Withnail and I Review


Good
Bittersweet tale of two loser actors, who spend a weekend drunk at an uncle's country cabin. George Harrison executive-produced. Best known for launching the underexposed Grant's career. And for being severely overrated.

Queen Of The Damned Review


Grim

When the promising, recently deceased young R&B singer and actress Aaliyah is on screen in the title role of "Queen of the Damned," it's impossible to look away from her. She absolutely transcends the screen and fills the whole theater with her potent presence. Bewitching, viperous, powerful, beautiful, sensual and captivating in every sense of the word, she dominates this incongruous vampire flick with her chilling allure.

Seeing her talent burst forth like this makes the plane crash that took her life last year all the more tragic. But in watching "Queen of the Damned" the more immediate misfortune is that her last performance comes in such a bad, bad movie. With its disengaging shallowness and cardboard cutout atmosphere, you'd never know "Queen of the Damned" was based on an Anne Rice novel if the film's real central character weren't such a well-known ghoul as the Vampire Lestat.

As played by slinky Stuart Townsend ("About Adam," "Shooting Fish"), this Lestat is a vacantly bloodthirsty porcelain Goth-rocker who bears no resemblance to the lithesome, charismatically nuanced, unexpectedly mesmerizing version of the character that Tom Cruise inhabited in 1994's "Interview with the Vampire."
