The Gamer Geek Blog – Best Games This Year

GamerGeekHey Geeksters!

Well it’s the end of the year, so that means it’s time to judge every game that came out this year, or do what my friends and I do and give each console it’s best game. The whole thing of giving each category an award is cool for bigger things but for a small blogger like me, one per console is fine. Continue reading

Miss Dawn’s Musings – Red vs Green

Blog-MissDawnsMusingsLast week (on Christmas Day) the full trailer for Deadpool was released. As expected, there was a red band version and a green band version. Obviously, the red band was the one to watch. There are a lot of movies that do this for trailers now and there are a couple reasons for it. First, having a green band trailer means it can be shown on television and in theaters – we’ve all seen the green screen with “this trailer approved for this audience” language. Second, people can choose whether or not to have “strong language and violence” in the trailer they watch online. Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Review: Santa’s Slay (2005)

bestgeekyfindsToday may be the day after Christmas, but it’s not too late to watch holiday movies. Why not a horror comedy? If you’re not ready for something like Krampus (I’m certainly not), why not delve into a premise even more ridiculous? Santa’s Slay (rated R) is based on one simple premise where Santa Claus (WWE Heavyweight Bill Goldberg) is actually Satan’s son. Around the same time Christ was born, a child was born on Earth from one of Satan’s flings. This child, named Santa (who else?), did what any other demon would do — create havoc and torture all around him. Everything changed one particular Christmas night though. Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – Why Die Hard is the Greatest Christmas Movie, Ever!

IrregularIntelOn this day many of us have watched all or part of one or many Christmas movies. These all have in common the presence of Santa Claus, the baby Jesus, the Christmas Spirit, gifts, trees, vacations, family, shopping and all of the other tropes in varying degrees. But, geeksters, there is one that rises above the fray. This tale does not involve shopping, Santa, lost Christmas Spirit, the baby Jesus, or any of the other stuff I have mentioned. This movie involves one man searching for redemption in the eyes of his wife and one man seeking forgiveness in himself and both will find what they are seeking at Nakatomi Plaza. Continue reading

Miss Dawn’s Musings – Spoilers, Sweetie

Blog-MissDawnsMusingsI walked in to Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Thursday night already knowing the entire plot. As it was released in the UK a few days earlier, it wasn’t difficult to find spoiler-filled reviews, commentary and, yes, entire plot breakdowns. When I told people I’d read it already, they looked at me like I was crazy (and no, I did not reveal any spoilers to anyone I spoke with). Honestly, I don’t see what the big deal is. Continue reading
