    The Menu


    If The Menu is a metaphor for critics and the overall consumption of art, then Nicholas Hoult is your average Letterboxd user. Yes, you.

  • The Thing

    The Thing


    Yes, it's not accurate to its source material, but it's a really interesting and bizarre adaptation. I hope one day we'll get to see John Carpenter's interpretation of the other Fantastic Four characters.

    Doctor Who: Wild Blue Yonder

    RTD to Moffat: I see your Heaven Sent, and raise you Midnight 2.0.

    RTD tries to do Midnight/The Waters of Mars mixed with a healthy dose of Event Horizon, The Thing, and...Spy Kids? The result is exactly as you'd expect.

Best Dr. Who content in over…
