I'm very late to comment, but I love Eleven's costume. And I have exactly the same Converses as Amy Pond. Except I've worn holes in the soles of mine so I can't really wear them anymore.

Speaking of Eleven, over the past few days I watched Neverwhere. It's really too late to jump on the Paterson Joseph for Eleven bandwagon, isn't it? Not that I have any problem with Matt Smith and I'm really excited about seeing him in action (2010 is not coming quickly enough).

Anyway, Neverwhere was good, a bit predictable in the big bad (particularly if you've read Sandman) but I loved the setting and I'm sure everyone who plays the UK version of monopoly can appreciate one of the characters being an actual angel called Islington. Unfortunately it was completely let down by it apparent production budget of £2.50 and some choices of direction which might possibly have been interesting in 1996, but have not aged well. Watching it I couldn't help but wish for a movie remake, because it'd be Harry Potter meets Pirates of the Caribbean (I couldn't help but compare the Marquis de Carabas with Jack Sparrow) and the lead character just screams for James McAvoy to play him. But it's apparently 'in-development' so I'm not holding my breath.

(I'm becoming very bitter with Hollywood at the moment since nothing I want to see adapted ever makes it out of development hell. And if I don't want to see it adapted, it tends to be one of the biggest movies of summer.)

I think I'm the only person in the world who hasn't seen Harry Potter yet. I'll get there maybe next week or the one after that. I kind of blew my movie budget being dragged to see Star Trek for the second time last week. Well, not so much dragged as tagged along with Flatmate and her kid brother. I've decided the movie is doing something a bit wrong since the thirteen year old kid brother came out with the impression that Kirk was smarter than Spock, and also the question “So, Spark, is he a Cylon?”

Probably, but we can always jump on the Paterson Joseph for Twelve one?

Eleven is adorkable. There's no other word for it. :D

...and the lead character just screams for James McAvoy to play him.

I like the way your brain works!

Also, I haven't seen HBP yet, either! Don't feel alone! I'm (hopefully) going this next week, when we have a ton of family around to watch the Pie. :D

Eleven is the epitome of adorkable.

And you mean other people don't spend their time thinking of ways they can get more James McAvoy in the movies? :D

Yay for not being alone!

I'm all on board Matt Smith as Eleven, but yeah, I'm still a bit sad for the Paterson Joseph!Eleven that will never be...

I'm a bit sad too. Although, as [livejournal.com profile] biichan say's above, he can always be Twelve.
