The Strain Strikes Out

The Strain Strikes Out

the-strain-logoAfter 3 episodes of FX’s The Strain, it strikes out terribly. It strikes out like an armless blind kid playing t-ball. The first episode spoon fed the audience all the information that they needed. In the second episode a few characters pop-up, but nothing happens to change or develop the show. Finally the third episode made everything clear on the type of monster that The Strain tried to hide.…

Geektastic’s Top Ten Goofiest Movie Songs

Geektastic’s Top Ten Goofiest Movie Songs

Goofiest Movie Songs

In honor of the new Ninja Turtles rap, I have compiled the Top Ten Goofiest Movie Songs!

The Rules: They had to be written for the movie or the movie soundtrack and could not have been released prior. The songs can’t be too awesome. This isn’t a greatest list, it’s a goofiest list. Also, they can’t just be bad a bad song. They, in some way, have to be fun.  That’s why you will not see…

The Walking Dead Issue 128

Issue 128 of The Walking Dead continues where the last one left off. Negan is locked behind a cell in the basement of some house and had just asked Carl if he still wanted to kill him, to which Carl replied that he did. Negan is surprised by Carl’s admission because he thought that they were becoming friends but Carl just walks away. Negan takes it pretty hard.

Halt and Catch Fire Ep. 8 The 214s Review

Halt and Catch Fire Ep. 8 The 214s Review

Halt and Catch Fire - Episode 1.08 - The 214s - Promotional PhotoI’ve been pretty down on this series lately, to the point where I didn’t even review the last two episodes. A show that started with such promise hadn’t delivered since episode 3. And I’m not alone in my sentiments since most of the major entertainment sites had also dropped it from their weekly TV show reviews. Every good show has a lull during a season but this show didn’t seem to have any…

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer Reaction

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer Reaction

The Walking Dead - Season 5 - 100 Screencaps from the Season 5 Promo

The Walking Dead’s Season 5 Trailer premiered at the San Diego Comic Con during TWD’s annual panel, and it was everything a fan could have hoped for and more. My initial reaction to the trailer is that season 5 seems to be a fresh start for the series. There’s no Governor and no prison, so it feels like a restart on many levels. Even though I’m up to date with the comic series I’ll keep this…

Geektastic’s 10 Movies that Best Epitomize Summer

Summer Picture 2

Since we are right smack dab in the middle of summer, I thought it was apropos to make a list of the best movies that epitomize summer. Christmas has its movies. Halloween has horror movies. Spring has…. well spring has spring. But summer is the best time of year and while we go see a lot of summer movies, we rarely discuss movies that are quintessentially “summer movies.” Now, that doesn’t mean…

THE BEST HE IS AT WHAT HE DOES, IF WHAT HE DOES IS DYING: WOLVERINE LATEST TO GET THE “DEATH OF…” TREATMENT

Death-of-Wolverine-McNiven-coverBust out your best black duds and a box of Kleenex, because we’ve got a funeral to attend, my fellow geeks.

If you haven’t heard, Marvel Comics is dead-set on killing off another one of it’s staple characters (I know what you’re thinking, Didn’t we just do this a year ago?) in September’s upcoming Death of Wolverine four part limited series.

Spoiler alert.  If the title didn’t giving it away,…
