I willed Star Wars: The Clone Wars back into existence. I'm serious. The day before Comic Con, I was gushing about the long-cancelled animated series as my true entrance into the Star Wars universe and how everyone should watch it, and the very next day, Disney drops the trailer for the show's return. That can't be… Continue reading Clone Wars is Saved – Why Is It Important?
That's right, I'm a real Rebel now. In the distant VOID planet in the Downtown Disney galaxy, I ventured into the final frontier to explore the immersive, super-ultra-mega-nerd Star Wars VR experience. I'd been dying to try this, and I finally convinced a friend to come with me. (Who knew some people don't want to… Continue reading Star Wars: The Virtual Reality Experience
Bridgette & Gen give a 15-minute spoiler free review of Ant-Man and The Wasp, and then we dive deep into spoiler waters. Highlights include: Ghost, who totally stole her phasing powers from Reverse Flash but remains a surprisingly interesting antagonist; Another Generic (White) Villain Dude; Father-Daughter Duos; Luis vs. The Not-Truth Serum; and THAT POST-CREDITS… Continue reading Nerd Alert Episode 3: Ant-Man and The Wasp Review
How does our perspective of Thor: Ragnarok change now that we know what happens immediately afterward in Infinity War? As usual, Bridgette & Gen first talk about THE FEELS, and then get into the nitty-gritty details. How has Thor & Loki’s complicated history built up to the emotional tipping point of [SPOILER]’s death? Why does the Hulk fail… Continue reading Nerd Alert Podcast Episode 2: Revisiting Thor: Ragnarok After Infinity War
All right, the movie wasn’t terrible. I had my severe doubts from the trailer, but what can I say? The Star Wars fandom deals with enough hyperbolic hate as it is, so now that I've seen the whole thing, I’m going to give Solo: A Star Wars Story the credit it’s due. I had fun.… Continue reading Well, He Shot First: Solo Movie Review
Avengers: Infinity War has been out for ages, and we're still crying inside (and outside). Bridgette and Gen are two simple fangirls who decided to hash out our feelings in a public podcast, as you do. Gen discusses how she saw the movie by herself and regrets every decision she has made up to this… Continue reading Nerd Alert Podcast Episode 1: Thanos Strikes Back
This will sound like a shock coming from me. I'm a Marvel fan whose obsession with Captain America (and by extension, Chris Evans) has no bounds. I have a six-foot tall cardboard cutout of him that I've showed off, multiple times, in public. People have given me a swarm of Captain America-themed items, from pajamas… Continue reading Why Captain America Should Die in Avengers: Infinity War
I remember the hurricane of controversy when the first poster for Black Panther was released last summer. Because the poster had a striking resemblance to a famous photograph of Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the American Black Panther Party, it ruffled white people’s feathers by simple virtue of a holla back to black power. I just have one… Continue reading Black Panther Rises, and My Body is Ready
If this trailer had been a fan-made film, I would have gushed about how they did a great job. "You guys made cool effects, an interesting (fanfic) backstory premise, and an awesome Chewbacca impression," I would have said. But no. This was a real Star Wars trailer. I don't know anyone who wanted this movie to… Continue reading Solo: A Star Wars Meh
I was curious about Marvel's Runaways since the beginning. While I'm not familiar with the Runaways comics, I was familiar with the co-creator Brian K. Vaughan, who also created the ongoing Saga series. I knew Vaughan was a master storyteller after reading Saga for the first time, so I figured a television adaptation of another of his comic series… Continue reading Marvel’s Runaways: Is It Worth the Binge?
