Interesting article from today's BBC - Far Flung: Strange Places to find famous Scots in 2014 - detailing four movies that famous Scots people are to be involved with this year. Note that according to the article, and indeed others, 2014 is the year of Homecoming although my memory suggests that we had one of them a couple of years ago. Nevertheless....
We start with Dreamworks, How to Train Your Dragon 2, based on stories by Cressida Cowell, who was apparently influenced by childhood holidays to one of the Inner Hebrides islands, although she is coy about the specifics. The first movie concerns a war between dragons and Vikings who eventually make their peace and, presumably, live happily ever after. Or perhaps not, if there is a sequel. Anyhow, Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson provide a couple of voices for the animation.
Over at the (Christian) Open Scroll Blog, Bob has analysed the first dragon training film, and come to the conclusion that it reflects the "end times". He's even made a video. It's well worth a look at, after all the symbolism in most movies now is fairly thick in terms of what is really going on so it's unlikely that he is too far from the mark.

Next up is Inverness born ex Dr. Who star, Karen Gillan, who is to play a space pirate called Nebula in a film called Guardians of the Galaxy. Red headed Karen has apparently shaved off her hair for the role. One wonders if she still wears the red string round her wrist as she did last year when she went to a Glasgow Celtic game. It's the same sort as favoured by Madonna (and indeed many other celebrities, many of them allegedly "mind controlled"), who wears hers as some sort of Kabbalistic charm. wiki - red string (Kabbalah) *
From Terrorism and the Illuminati :
Certain etymologies propose that the word Scythians, from “Sacae”, in turn is derived from “Isaac Sons” or “Sons of Isaac.” Isaac, Abraham'’s son, had two sons, Jacob, the father of the nation of Israel, and Esau, the forefather of the Edomites. In the Bible, Esau was tricked out of his birthright, the leadership of Israel, by his brother Jacob. Esau was a red haired, or “red all over like a hairy garment”, and called Edom, which means red. Likewise, the Scythians, according to Herodotus, “have all deep blue eyes, and bright red hair.”
From Declaration of Arbroath (Scottish Independence) :
Most Holy Father and Lord, we know and from the chronicles and books of the ancients we find that among other famous nations our own, the Scots, has been graced with widespread renown. They journeyed from Greater Scythia by way of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Pillars of Hercules, and dwelt for a long course of time in Spain among the most savage tribes, but nowhere could they be subdued by any race, however barbarous. Thence they came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to their home in the west where they still live today.

The last movie proffered up by the BBC is X Men: Days of Future Past, starring Glaswegian James McAvoy and a menagerie of mutants. Apparently X men have an extra gene which provides them with additional abilities.
Here at newspaceman, we are interested in the letter X, the Roman 10, especially given the forthcoming independence referendum in which voters will mark their slips with a X. The following images might also explain why:
