Week 6

I’m catching up! This is the first list where I’ve seen all five movies, great choices. One of the interesting things about Alphaville is that there were no sets–it was all filmed in existing 1965 Paris locations, particularly La Defense if I remember correctly. So the recognizable somehow becomes alien noir. I should try to find it, it’s been years since I saw it.

Video of the Week: The War Games

This is a jolly good promo for the 10-part epic “Doctor Who” story “The War Games”.  It not only marked the end of the journey for the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe but for the first time viewers got to learn a little bit about the Doctor – the name of his planet, his race and so many other interesting tidbits.


What strikes me best about this trailer is how cool it all looks. I mean, I’ve watched this ten-parter more than once and there’s a lot of dull in the midst of all that historic goings ons. Still, the trailer for the upcoming DVD release is a very cool ride.
