Cosplayer Spotlight 04 : Sean


Spider-Man is an icon that everyone can relate to. He’s so popular that a lot of the cosplayers that choose Spider-Man nowadays have to deal with the pressure of all the movie costumes overshadowing their interpretations. Sean fights back by sticking to a more dramatic style of cosplay that feels like it’s leaping right off a double-page spread. This is what happens when a writer named Adam (A) asks a cosplayer named Sean (S) a couple of moderately hard hitting questions.

Gotham vs Flash? Flash quickly races up the list of my favourite shows this season

I am going to make an unpopular statement. I don’t really like Batman. Yeah, yeah, I know, grab the pitchforks and chase me out of the nerd club. Sorry, but Batman always seemed like a silly idea to me. I mean, bats aren’t intimidating or scary –they’re cute! And don’t get me started on the pointy ear things on his costume. Add to that the fact that Batman doesn’t have any super powers, unless you count being lucky enough to be born rich, and I lose interest pretty quickly. Read the rest »

Back and Almost Better Than Ever!

Before he spoke like a chain-smoker, before the suit had nipples, there was a hero that truly understood the darkness, and had a very recognizable mouth. Do you know who am I referring to? Well he has a new toy now, and its pretty cool, even after all these years. Read the rest »

Pooping on Popular Culture


Birdman is a crafty film, using the massive success of super hero movies to shed light on a more complex and less flashy theme like mental illness. *Spoiler-free thoughts*

Cosplayer Spotlight 03 : Jeff


Moving along with this October Cosplayer interview-palooza we have a fellow toy-collector that enriches the mind’s of youngsters through the week and growls “Bub” on the weekends…or so thats how I picture it. Oh how I love the variety of cosplayers out there, just goes to show you that you can never judge a book by its cover. Read the rest »

You wished upon a Star


You all wished for a trailer for the much anticipated Avengers sequel, and your wish has come true! Yesterday the Avengers 2 trailer blew up online in a big way! What initially began as a leak (damn Hydra) led to Marvel releasing the nice crispy HD version which you can watch here!

Its pretty damn exciting. Just don’t make the same mistake I did and watch it on your phone with no sound! No, no, it has to be done right! The trailer is full of easter eggs that raise many eyebrows, heart rates and of course, expectations! Boy do I love the soundtrack though, I sure hope we get at least one sing-a-long in the movie! Hrmmm so if Ultron is Pinnochio is Ant-Man Gepetto?

Cosplayer Spotlight 02 : Leah

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays (Christmas is obviously #1!). Scary movies, jack-o-lanterns, candy, and of course the best part – dressing up! For one night only, you can be someone or something else and forget about reality. But why limit yourself to one night only? If cosplaying is your passion, just do it whenever and however! Leah certainly has.

Cosplayer Spotlight 01 : Paul


So often we see awesome cosplayers walking around conventions, looking all awesome and stuff, sometimes a bit intimidating. But we are brave nerds, we stop them and ask for a photo, thanks them, walk away. But who is the nerd behind the mask? What drives them? Why the heck are they dressed up in spandex? Well here is the first of many cosplay interviews to answer these deep questions!

Gone Girl Review

Here’s my spoiler-free review for Gone Girl. A fantastic mystery movie that’ll keep you at the edge of your seats throughout the entire film. Batfleck is great but Rosamund Pike definitely steals the show. On a random note, I can’t wait for Batman V Superman because in Gone Girl, Batfleck looks huge!

Mighty Morphin’ Hamilton!


Thanks to Claudio’s lovely birthday gift to Hugo earlier this year, the two nerds were able to attend the Hamilton Comic Con this year together and meet some choice Rangers! Bringing huge smiles to their 8yr old selves, and somewhat unimpressed expressions to their significant others. If you were able to attend you know it was good times, if not click along with us and feel the magic! In a first time ever 2-person post!
