She Geek Critique – Sound of Silence

It’s hard to imagine a movie that would engross an audience to such a degree that they would make as little noise as possible while watching it. Amazingly, the low budget thriller/horror A Quiet Place manages to do just that (seriously, people weren’t even eating their popcorn!). And, as someone who loves silence in theaters, this was definitely my kind of movie.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Sound of Silence

She Geek Critique – For the Sake of Nostalgia

It’s fair to say that geeks are born, not made. It’s just something that’s in us from the start – we gravitate to those things that put us in the category, whether it’s pop culture, sci-fi, fantasy, books, games, science, technology or whatever else is considered beyond mainstream.

But there’s a distinction between true nostalgia and simple reminders.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – For the Sake of Nostalgia

It’s been three years since the first (and only) season of Constantine aired. At that time it was an ambitious show for a big television network because it was so dark, literally and figuratively. Of course, it couldn’t be any other way with a title character who is an occult detective and self-described master of the dark arts (yes, it’s on his business cards). But NBC did a really good job with the show and a lot of people (including me) were disappointed it didn’t get renewed.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Hunting Demons

She Geek Critique – Everyone’s a Critic

Year ago, people used to be able to go to movies and just enjoy them. Sure, depending on the movie some would have been more enjoyable than others – I mean, the adventure of Raiders of the Lost Ark was perhaps a touch more “fun” than all the crying in Terms of Endearment (yes, that’s sarcasm). But somewhere along the way, with the evolution of the internet and the idea that everybody’s opinion needs to be made public, we stopped being satisfied with seeing a movie for the enjoyment factor and started critiquing everything about it.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Everyone’s a Critic
