    Ooh you’ve picked out 2 of my favourites there, the Weeping Angels in Doctor Who are fantastic (I used to live in Cardiff so I love spotting Dr Who locations!) and Dogma – great film! I don’t know about the others, but great first post with a twist 🙂 i have some cool blogs in my first 5 after mine in the sign up list xx

    Love Doctor Who. Great choice.

    The Prophecy movies starring Christopher Walken. The angels are sort of split down the middle. Christopher Walken is not one of the good angels. He is jealous of humans and doesn’t understand why God loves them so much. He calls them mud eating monkeys or something similar. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the movie.

    Angels, good choice! I haven’t watched Evangelion for ages – must get it out again! And who could forget Dr Who’s Weeping Angels…creepy as heck.

    Interesting idea. The weeping angels are by far my favorite Dr Who villains! Dogma is a great movie. It’s the first Kevin Smith movie I ever saw and I liked it so much I had to go watch all his other movies. Happy A to Z blogging!
