We wanted a little Sherlock on a Friday night but settled on this Cumberbatch-Freeman flick instead. This is a movie full of action and a great visual effects.

Hawking stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the young Stephen Hawking who, as a bright and ambitious 21-year-old PhD student at Cambridge University, is diagnosed with the debilitating motor neurone disease and given two years to live. Against the odds, he goes on to achieve scientific success and worldwide acclaim, in particular with his best-selling book A Brief History Of Time.

Note: We saw this on Father’s Day (at my dad’s request) and it was a really good movie. Benedict Cumberbatch does a great job of portraying Stephen Hawking who is one of the world’s most famous men of science. I think Hawking has some good things to say but as a man of faith I believe that God is responsible for creation, however I see there is some things about time and space that can be divinely created. I came away from this with a new respect for the contributions of Stephen Hawking.

Sherlock Weekend!

Tonight our PBS station WTCI will air the season 2 finale  “The Reichenbach Fall” and tomorrow season it’s the season 3 premiere “The Empty Hearse” It’s been too long. Welcome back Holmes and Watson.

Now all these gifs on Tumblr will finally make sense. I look forward to seeing what the fuss is all about.

Steven Moffat….Sherlock and Doctor Who

Standard

Steven Moffat has a great grasp on how to produce and write for Sherlock…he gets it. It helps that there is a literary source code to draw from and it takes place in present day.

When it comes to running the show for Doctor Who it seems creatively he isn’t focused and has a problem with linking the past with the present or so it seems. I think if he referred to classic Who as the source code he would create some amazing stories.

I hope Peter Capaldi can help him creatively and help re-focus the show for the future.
