Hunger Games Catching Fire

Aloha! Hope you guys are having a good week. What have we been up to? Rob played Twilight Imperium and loved it. I really do want to get in on a game soon. I also want to check out Space Alert after reading an interesting review on it. I have excited news, but I can’t share it just yet. 🙁 Other than that, not much else. Although we are hoping to go to the Ren Faire soon, so that’s something.

This past week I explored what it takes to write a strong female character, and it turns out superpowers are not one of the criteria. You can check out the full article here.

The big news of has been that Peter Capaldi will be the next Doctor Who. I wrote an article earlier in the week on why Capaldi’s casting would be such a dramatic change for New Who.

SFX has a few more articles offering  information on just why Capaldi is the perfect choice. Namely that has is a FAN. He wrote articles for the Doctor Who fanzine and apparently wanted to run the Doctor Who fan club.

More trailers to check out this week. We have the final Ender’s Game trailer.

Next we have a new trailer for Thor.

 

In case you were wondering, above is a new image of Jennifer Lawrence in Catching Fire.
