Doctor Who Racist? Go Screw Yourselves, Academics!!!

0

Less than a minute ago I read a blog post on how academics all over the world (Americans) declared Doctor Who to be an abysmally racist show that confers with the most traditional and primitive views. Well, dear academics, this is utter horse shit, and you can screw yourselves!!! Yes, please do that as by doing so you will be making a better use of your time, and leave Doctor Who alone! If you were actually real academics, would you be bothered with a television show? Isn’t there something more important in the world to study? Why pick on a show that has turned into a geek religion, because you never mess with the geeks and live to tell the tale. Like Tony Stark said, “You know the thing about smart people is that they have their asses covered.” So let me try and penetrate that thick ‘academic’ skull of yours with some smart and valid arguments.

Firstly, in the very first season, Rose Tyler the Doctor’s companion is dating a black guy named Mickey Smith who is played by Noel Clarke. Agreed, in the beginning Mickey isn’t the stand up macho dude who would have a huge impact on you, but the character development was such that before the end of the second season he is named the Defender of the Earth. Oh yes, he is. Would this have been possible if the entire cast and crew along with the production house of Doctor Who would have been racist?

In the third season the Doctor had a companion named Martha Jones played by Freema Agyeman. FYI, she is black. Yes, the Doctor did not fall madly in love with her, he couldn’t have because he already loved Rose, but he did treat Martha with a lot of respect and was always concerned with her welfare. He battled monsters and rescued her heroically before she crashed into the sun. Would this have been possible if the show had been based on a racist mentality?

Now you ask why the doctor did not fight slavery, oh you daft ‘academics’, the Doctor cannot change fixed incidents in time. He keeps warning his companions against it too, and so there is no way that he could have saved the mankind from slavery. The Doctor creates a sense of belonging. All over the world people are connected with the help of this fandom, irrespective of their nationality or the colour of their skin. It is a TV show people, leave it alone. Spend your time studying something that is legitimate instead of flinging your crappy views on a TV show. Watch it if you like it, if not, for the love of God stop passing judgments.

Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Ratings: 4 1/2 /5
Lo and behold! Marvel’s undisputed king, the knight in shining armor (quite literally), the brilliant billionaire with a philanthropic heart, AKA Tony Stark, the Iron Man. Marvel and Robert Downy Junior have really outdone themselves with the latest installment in the Iron Man series. No Hulk with his badass temper and no Thor with his mother’s drapes even stand a fighting chance against the Iron Man when it comes to naming the ultimate superhero.

Iron Man one was a wonder; one of the best movies in the genre, and then came Iron Man 2 that left a bitter taste in your mouth, like you swallowed a mouthful of blood and could taste ‘iron’ in the back of your mouth. However, there is not even the slightest fraction of room for disappointment in Iron Man 3. There will be moments when your heart will be in your mouth, threatening to pop out, and moments when you will simply dissolve in laughter when RDJ oh-so-adorably displays his quirks. Even Gwyneth Paltrow outshines her role as the CEO of Stark Industries, and divulges deeper into the role of the strong and relentless woman that is worthy of the Iron Man.

Once the plot has been laid out, and the Mandrin make it personal with RDJ, there is no going back. The movie simply swoops you out of your chair, and sucks you into the movie, 3D or not. This time, there is more of Tony Stark and his never dying and legendary brilliance. Yes, brilliant is the word. There is nothing more entertaining than watching Tony Stark dig deep into his mind and figure out how to make it against the baddies without his suit. He has barely recovered from the incident in the black hole in New York City, and you will want to hold him tight and hug him with all your might when he is having one of his anxiety attacks.There is so much more to say and so much more to give away, but I am not going to give you any spoilers and paint a target on the back of my head.

All I can say is that the end of the movie is like a million stars and meteoroids all crashing down to the earth, creating a spectacular vision that will stay with you for a long time, even after you may have exited the theater. There is no watching this movie just once; it would be a shame to watch it just once. Fans are going to watch this one over and over again until it is seared into their memories for good; well, I have done it twice already. Pause whatever the hell you are doing, and watch Iron Man 3, it is worth it.
