Best Geeky Finds – Space Family Robinson

My love of campy sci-fi has never been restricted to film. Sure, there’re plenty of bad movies out there that I’ll never stop finding tire fires to enjoy. The 60s was the space age though, and everywhere you looked there was a movie about humans traveling to another planet and being attacked by an intergalactic creature. In 1965 this was especially witnessed in living rooms. Lost in Space told the story of the family of astronauts whose ship was sabotaged and shot off course in an asteroid field, left stranded on a planet orbiting Alpha Centauri.

Comics Cosmos – Let’s Get Lucky

If you’re interested in Marvel comics at all you’ve invariably heard of Domino (or if you’ve seen the trailer for a certain upcoming sequel). She’s been around since the 90s, most often as part of X-Force, but sometimes affiliated with other groups and, especially in recent years, a compatriot of Deadpool. Now Domino has returned in her own comic, written by the legendary Gail Simone with impressively fun art by David Baldeón.  Continue reading Comics Cosmos – Let’s Get Lucky

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

GW1 Issue 150 – Extra Life at the Oasis

This week we’re discussing Ready Player One – the good, the bad and references you may have missed. And, of course, we need to talk about perhaps the best crossover ever: “ScoobyNatural”! Plus we chat about how good Black Lightning has been at reflecting current events and going where other superhero shows won’t go. We have a few interesting tidbits to share in geek news as well.  Listen now!  Continue reading GW1 Issue 150 – Extra Life at the Oasis
