Friday Flix: The Decoy Bride

friday flix jae scribblesAnd we’re back with another edition of Friday Flix. I considered doing this post on Valentine’s Day, but comics demanded they had their place and since it was Thursday at that time anyway, well… Here we are.

Today we’re featuring, The Decoy Bride, starring Kelly Macdonald, Alice Eve, and of course David Tennant. Yeah, I think a lot of us would watch a movie just because David Tennant was in it. So, I did.

The description from

When the world’s media descend on the remote Scottish island where a Hollywood actress is attempting to get married, a local girl is hired as a decoy bride to put the paparazzi off the scent.


That should be obvious, shouldn’t it? David Tennant. And he uses his Doctor Who accent. And he does a fantastic job with his character. Plus I loved a certain scene where he ends up “playing” the bagpipes. It might be worth it just for that.

I think this makes for a great writers post, so I’m turning it into a tagging post, mostly because there’s some people whose answers I’d like to hear. But first, here’s my fantasy circle of five.


David-Tennant-as-Doctor-WhoI’m sure some of you guessed it. Why, the Doctor of course! And not just any Doctor, but the David Tennant Doctor in particular. I’ve always, always, ALWAYS wanted to time travel as well as space travel and with the Doctor you can do both. I’d want him to park the TARDIS right on the ring of Saturn and open the door so I could see it up close. I’d probably make him do that with every planet in our galaxy, and then, anything and everything. Besides, if he’s 900+ years old, there’s a lot I’d like to ask him about.
