And so the Con Season Begins!-This weekend’s Planet Comicon marked the start of convention season! Now, I know we sound a little repetitive by now, but PCKC is our absolute favorite convention. (No, they aren’t paying us to say it.) First and foremost, we love the size of the convention. It’s always busy, but you never feel like you can’t move. There is always somewhere nearby where you can find space to take a photo with a cosplayer. Or room Read More
Low Key Ways to Celebrate May the Fourth-Even the most basic of Star Wars fans knows about 5/4. It’s a holy day among the nerds and geeks who worship The Franchise. A day to don your Jedi robes and appreciate the masterpieces that are episodes 4, 5, 6, and 7…..and begrudgingly tolerate 1, 2, and 3. But what’s an office-bound Padawan to do when May the Fourth falls on a weekday?! Here are some subtle ways to show your Star Wars solidarity when Read More
Nerd Barrage Reviews: Power Rangers-I have very mixed feelings….Potential spoilers ahead! Now, I don’t want to take a giant dump on this movie, because it wasn’t awful, but there might be a fair bit of dumping. As an overall impression, it wasn’t a horrible action movie. There have been worse (lookin’ at you BvS), and most of my complaints revolve around poor story-telling. So first, the good! This movie was absolutely beautiful. There were quite a few creatively shot Read More
Nerd Barrage Reviews: Blood Rage-Matt and Brent sit down and review: Blood Rage Matt's Final Score Brent's Final Score Summary The amount of potential strategy in Blood Rage is unreal. There is a spectacular variety of routes each player can take towards victory and everyone plays differently. The battle mechanic is unique and challenging. And, on top of all of that, the minis and the art work are incredibly intricate and well designed. Although we would definitely recommend that Read More
Nerd Barrage Reviews: Logan-THERE WILL BE SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW! You have been warned. I want to start this review out by saying, I went into the theater with some pretty high expectations. Being the first X-Men movie (Deadpool may have had a few X-Men in it, but it doesn’t count as an X-Men movie – come at me!) with an ‘R’ rating, I expected cursing and tons of blood. I was not disappointed. Logan is by no Read More
Celebrity Deaths – Why We Care So Much-As the internet continually pointed out, 2016 was a rough year in terms of celebrity deaths. There is no doubt that 2016 claimed the lives of a serious number of iconic celebrities. January started the gruesome movement with the death of one of my favorite artists of all time, the glorious David Bowie – two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his album, Black Star. And that early blow sparked a terrible trend. Read More
Nerd Barrage Reviews: John Wick – Chapter 2-Yeah. I’d say he’s back. And with a vengeance. It’s rare for a sequel to rival its predecessor…and even more seldom does it outshine it. But in Chapter 2, Director Chad Stahelski steps up the action, the gun-play, the body count and the story line. This film gives us a deeper look into the mysterious world of assassins introduced in the original. It’s a respectable, well-mannered and frighteningly deadly hierarchy of cool-headed bosses, puppeteers and Read More
