Irregular’s Intel – Go Go Power Rangers: The Review

Ok, before you roll your eyes too hard, Power Rangers is not really a kids’ movie. Even the wife said, “ I like it. Had it not been titled Power Rangers, I would have taken it for a sci-fi action movie. And Rita was scary!” Yes, that is a direct quote. This is a reboot, I guess, of the original series and the original rangers are all here, Jason Scott, Trini Kwan, Kimberly Hart, Zack Taylor and Billy Cranston. They are all in Angel Grove, too. Along with a few other bits, all of the basic components are present, but that is where the similarities stop.  Continue reading

Playing Around – Ready for the Oasis

If you’re a geek who loves to read (or even if you don’t), you have likely already devoured Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. You also probably know that it’s being made into a movie, set to release one year from today. On this week’s episode of Geek Watch One, we mentioned a bit of innovation that’s being developed alongside the movie – virtual reality content.  Continue reading

GW1 Issue 97 – Beauty of Disney Remakes

It’s the end of the month and we’re enjoying ourselves at The Malted Meeple once again.

She Geek Critique – Not So Distinguished Competition

This weekend I realized why I am so negative about DC, both the comics and the movies. It’s not because I feel there needs to be a big rivalry between Marvel and DC, and I happen to like Marvel more. No, it’s because, for the past few years, DC and Warner Brothers have ruined the things I used to love about DC characters.  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Feelings On the End of a Favorite

I’ve had mixed feelings about The Vampire Diaries since its first episode in 2009. I tried watching it when it first premiered, but it was way too depressing to watch, as the first 10 minutes explain that the main character, Elena’s, parents died in a car accident off a bridge over the summer. I gave up at that point, not ready to deal with the grief that would happen the rest of the season.  Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – Now That We’ve Met Luke Cage and Iron Fist

Luke Cage and Danny Rand have both stepped up to the plate and had their series on Netflix. Now the wait is on for Marvel’s The Defenders. That’s all well and good, but the bigger question is, are we ready for a live action Heroes for Hire? I’d say, no. Danny and Luke need to sort out their personal stuff before we get to have Power Man and Iron Fist.  Continue reading

GW1 Issue 96 – Power of the Iron Fist

Netflix came out with the next installment in its Marvel shows this past weekend and, no surprise, we binged it all and want to talk about it. So… spoilers! But before we get to that, there were some interesting news tidbits this week, including a crazy schedule for the upcoming season of 12 Monkeys and a big change in ticket sales for a major convention. Listen now!  Continue reading

Comics Cosmos – Always on Target

By now, every comics reader knows there was a shake-up in the ranks of the Avengers because of Civil War II. And one of those changes involved Hawkeye. Clint Barton (the Hawkeye most people know) was up on charges for killing Bruce Banner, but ultimately found not guilty. Even so, he couldn’t go back to his previous role so Kate Bishop (who has been in the secondary Hawkeye role for a few years now) has taken over and is now the focus in Marvel’s Hawkeye comics.  Continue reading
