Midweek Geek Out 6-19-13: The Future of Superman (Spoiler-free Review!)

June 20, 2013

11

It’s been a pretty intense gauntlet of new films for movie goers and geek inclined alike. Ironman 3 kicked off the 2013 summer season (see my review here) followed by new installments of Star Trek, Fast and Furious and Superman, as well as a few non-franchise movies, including the magician’s ensemble Now You See Me, […]

Midweek Geek Out 5-29-13: There Are Always Trick Arrows in the Banana Stand

May 29, 2013

I’ve been woefully negligent lately. I’ve already decided that I’m not apologizing about my lapses in activity, but there has really been a lot of  quality geek-fare worth sounding off on that I haven’t addressed in a timely manner, and that’s unfortunate. I actually have several reviews in the works; I want to address TV […]

Counting Down to The Hobbit, Part 2: Faramir and Fangorn

December 13, 2012

Following up with my Lego Lord of the Rings trek through Middle Earth prior to the December 14th release of The Hobbit, I decided to revisit the Two Towers and finally getting around the building Battle of Helm’s Deep. As anyone with even a passing interest in Lord of the Rings could likely surmise, the Lego set […]

So I realized there were a few Geek loose threads lying about that needed addressing… time to wrap it up! 1.) Arrow I don’t know if you’ve been watching the show, but I can honestly say that it keeps getting better. The acting is a little stiff, and the interactions feel a little repetitive, but […]

Alternate title: “No, Superman does not wear his underwear outside his pants anymore.” (Inspired by my response to Miss Four Eyes’ blog entry.) [Disclaimer: While I have not come even close to touching all 52 titles and most of my samplings so far have been the trade pubs (which are at least 6 months behind […]

Midweek Geek Out (November 15) – Nintendo Edition

November 15, 2012

My first game system ever was a Nintendo Entertainment System. I had played Atari, of course, as a wee lad, but the first system I ever physically owned was a Nintendo. I remember once having a conversation with someone born in 1988 about our video game histories and realizing, “Wow, I’ve been playing Final Fantasy since […]

Midweek Geek Out (November 7) – Potluck

November 7, 2012

1

I have some fantastic geek out ideas that I can’t, unfortunately, discuss at length until at least next week, so this will be a melting pot of sorts of stray subtopics. 1.) Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamil are all reportedly interested in reprising their roles for a future Star Wars film. And I […]
