There’s no better day to review the soundtrack for Thor: The Dark World than Thor’s Day, A.K.A. Thursday, A.K.A. today. The Asgardian’s first foray into film was the 2011 adaptation of the Marvel comics version of the Norse myth, a robust noble epic that made the inevitable sequel something to look forward to. Its score was equally epic.
Unfortunately the mighty Avenger’s sequel proves to be less than mighty, but there’s still a chance that the music could be fantastic, right? In the immortal words of the Thunder God himself (as scripted by Stan Lee), “I say thee nay, base villain!”
With Netflix drawing in more than four times the earnings in the third quarter of 2013, as it did during the same time period in 2012, it’s clear: Internet streaming has captured the elusive status of the ultimate shaker and mover in the world of entertainment. But what does this mean for the film industry? Critics of Internet streaming allege that, now that a trip to the movie theater is no longer necessary, producers will no longer be able to elicit the profits necessary to justify huge film investments. As those in favor of streaming explain, this concern has bothered naysayers since the dawn of the VCR — and so far, to no avail.

Disney goes back to its roots with a show tune filled animated adventure for the whole family. Filled with song, action and comedy the film Frozen hits the ground sliding into a holiday almost devoid of family fare. Featuring new characters that are bound to attract both young girls and boys, Frozen should be able to go toe-to-toe with The Hunger Games for the Thanksgiving holiday box-office champ.
While normally Lindalee can be found on her review set following each new Doctor Who episode, this time around, she found herself amidst tens of thousands of fellow Whovians at the 50th Anniversary Celebration for the show. Having watched the 50th episode on location in London, what better place and with who else better than the fans themselves to get their takes on the historic episode. Along the way, she also ran into some classic Doctor Who villains and a guest appearance Dan Starkey who plays “Strax” on the hit BBC show. What did you think of the episode? Leave your comments below…Thanks!
The title of this week’s S.H.I.E.L.D. episode – Repairs – comes packed with multiple meanings. It refers to mechanical repairs for the team’s super jumbo jet, the Bus, necessitated by attacks from a ghostly villain seeking physical repairs for his corporally-ravaged body. Most significant, however, are the emotional repairs needed for the Bus’ pilot, Melinda May, even though she may not realize it.
On Thanksgiving night, November 28 (9:30-11:00 p.m., ET), the ABC Television Network will air the 90-minute special, “Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular.” The broadcast offers an avant-garde twist on the classic holiday variety show as Lady Gaga goes backstage with The Muppets, making a performance dream come true for the multi-platinum singer songwriter when they combine forces to sing holiday favorites and Lady Gaga hits.

I’ve been biting holes in my tongue trying not to reveal the wonderful twists and secrets of this fantastic film! Do not – I repeat – do not talk to anyone about the end of this movie before you see it. Talk about a spoiler alert! (but there aren’t really any spoilers in this review)
A few days ago we shared with you the interview with Beyond the Marquee’s own Lindalee Rose and resident Doctor; Matt Smith, from the hit BBC series “Doctor Who”. Our resident Whovian has been in London all week partaking in the 50th Anniversary Celebration for the show, talking to fans and meeting some of the cast from the show as well.

The folks over at BuzzFeed posted an in-depth synopsis yesterday revealing 35 awesome Easter Eggs from the 50th Anniversary episode of DOCTOR WHO, “The Day of the Doctor”. It was so good that we couldn’t resist sharing it with our readers. Now, granted, you really have to be an invested Doctor Who fan for several years to get most of these references to the 50 year-long history of the show.
However, even those who have a passing knowledge of the Doctor Who universe might find something interesting detailing the depth the current show creators put in as nods to the show’s impressive history.

5 1/2 year old Lindalee Rose is living the dream as she’s in London for Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversay Celebration. This fresh young Whovian who just over a year ago began her on-camera reviews of the hit BBC show, has now travelled to the birthplace of the show to not only partake in the weekend’s festivities and talk to fans, but to meet some of the cast from the show as well. Her 1st day on the job made the trip worthwhile as she met the show’s resident time-lord, Matt Smith (the 11th Doctor). Keeping with the theme of the birthday weekend, Lindalee had some unique questions of her own for Matt.
If you weren’t already aware, there are big events in store this weekend for Doctor Who fans! On Saturday, November 23rd, our Nerdist and BBC America friends will be conducting a pre-show Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special prior to the global simulcast of “The Day of the Doctor,” which brings together Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt, Jenna Coleman, and Billie Piper. The Nerdist crew will be counting down to the special episode itself, which airs at 11:50am PT.
Hosted by Veronica Belmont and featuring a bevy of special guests, the pre-pre show will begin at 11:15 am PT on BBC America’s YouTube channel, then at 11:30 am PT, the pre-show will begin on BBC America, the television channel as well as BBC America’s YouTube channel, then following the special itself, there will be a post-show wrap-up on YouTube at 1:00 pm PT. It’s like a Doctor Who sandwich on Nerdist bread. Read on for more!
The Hunger Games continues with “Catching Fire” and as the title suggests, the movie does just that. The compelling adventure starts out with a bang, continues with non-stop action and leaves you hanging for the next installment. The main cast is back and they put on a great show recreating their characters for this sequel. On the downside, even through the CGI is brilliant, it gets too heavy-laden and almost animated, leaving very little to the imagination. Most audiences will walk away from the experience with an empty feeling being left hanging in the middle of the battle.
Lindalee Rose goes over her pre-flight checklist before heading into the TARDIS and across the cosmos … or at least across a vast ocean to London, England for the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Celebration. Be sure to subscribe to Beyond the Marquee on YouTube for all the latest updates and exclusive interviews with the fans and cast of Doctor Who at what’s anticipated to be the biggest convention in the universe this weekend.
