It is a massive collaboration of 40 different authors (because 40 years, get it?) each writing a [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel Directed By: Anna Boden Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson My Rating: A Kree by the name of Vers (Brie Larson) crashes on Earth, circa 1995.

During her search she also has flashbacks that seem to be from a previous life. Are these flashbacks key to defeating the Skrull and/or helping her find out who she really is? Biggs’ Review I really enjoyed this movie. I can’t say if it’s the witty writing or the homage to [… Click to Continue …]

It's Geek Pride Day 2018

Welcome to Geek Pride Day 2018! This is a day of jubilation starting back to 2008 in which we celebrate geek culture. Let’s be honest with ourselves, we are all geeks about something. Anything that you enjoy doing or something you are passionate about earns you the geek moniker. Many of us probably started earlier, like high school (or even prior to that). Back then the geek label often indicated how much smarter you are than your classmates. It also marks you as someone who may lack certain social skills, primarily because our interests were esoteric and unorthodox (comparatively speaking). Be that as it may, [… Click to Continue …]
