December is more than just Christmas

The moment November ends everything becomes about Christmas. Holiday music and decor is crammed into our eyeballs before we even have the chance to flip the page on our calendars. Immediately the countdown to ugly sweaters and eggnog begins!
But now there is also a mini one-day convention in the city! It has been around for a while but a first for me, lets take a look!

The Fire Keeps Burning

I must admit I was a bit hesitant going into the Hunger Games franchise, initially I had thought it was going to be another Twilight but with archery. After racing through the first few pages in the first book it became pretty obvious that that wasn’t the case… and that I had to go buy the second book ASAP. Yes the books were great but how does the last movie compare?

Maybe one day if I try really hard…

i want to be Chris Pratt

Have you seen The Guardians of the Galaxy? If you have I am sure you would agree that Starlord AKA Peter Quill AKA Chris Pratt is pretty gosh-darn awesome. Now Pratt is back in the next installment of the Jurassic Park franchise; Jurassic World. I have no clue who is character is but damn he looks so friggin cool!
Chris Pratt is my new hero. He is basically getting all the roles I play in my dreams, and I am OK with that.

A Monopoly on Madness!

About a week ago McDonald’s Monopoly ended, and with it my hopes of being a McMillionaire. I am left with a handful of half-finished game boards and a gut full of McCrap… along with a desire to look up what other forms this evil game has taken over the years. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that there are about a bajillion different versions, so, like any good nerd; I assembled a list.

Interstellar is a Masterpiece

Interstellar is an astonishing spectacle that has redefined what it means to be a remarkable film. This movie is incredibly emotional, visually-stunning, thought-provoking, and something that I have never felt about any other film – inspirational. Watch Interstellar in IMAX and your life will never be the same.

Cosplayer Spotlight 05 : Chris

We all wear masks, metaphorically speaking… But seriously folks; does the mask make the man or does it simply awaken what was already there? Well I don’t wear masks too often so I don’t have any answers, for the answer I turn to the cool cosplayer that goes by Corrupt Cosplay. Perhaps he will enlighten me on life behind the mask, or maybe we’ll just have a nice nerdy chat about dressing up!

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 »
