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

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.

This movie was absolutely beautiful. There were quite a few creatively shot

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.

Celebrity Deaths - Why We Care So Much

And that early blow sparked a terrible trend.

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

A Game of Thrones Feast to Impress Your Valentine

This book is chock-full of mouth-watering medieval recipes as well as many modern day counterparts that add a little something extra to the traditional dishes.
