Hercules Review (From Someone Who Did Not See Hercules)


This is the tale of Hercules, a legend so big that it spawned a TV show which spawned a spinoff called Xena which had Lucy Lawless running around in leather and a possible lesbian relationship with her friend. So just by association to Xena, Hercules is awesome. One can see how this could be mistaken for The Legend of Hercules … Read More

First Trailer For The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies


Peter Jackson finishes up his time in Middle-Earth this year with the final movie in The Hobbit trilogy. Check out the trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which has good shots of Thorin (in full-on king dickhead mode), Bilbo, Gandalf, Legolas and a whole bunch of armies.

You will be able to play as the crew of the Nostromo when you pre-order Alien: Isolation in the DLC titled Crew Expendable. If you could see the smile … Read More

First Ant-Man Poster From Comic-Con


Here is the first poster for Edgar Wright’s Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man. Doesn’t have the same ring to it. The poster features Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, creator of the Ant-Man suit and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, who in the comics steal the suit and gets Pym’s blessing to be the new Ant-Man. Also, he is riding an ant because, … Read More

Cinematic Batman: Worst To First- Part One


In case you did not know (or haven’t been beaten over the head with it by DC) 2014 is Batman’s 75th birthday. He is still looking spry for an older gent and continues to kick ass every month in multiple comics. This isn’t about comics though, this is about the Caped Crusader’s cinematic adventures which range from the genre-defining to … Read More

WWE Battleground 2014 Predictions


Normally if the WWE tried to run two PPV’s a month I would ask what the big rush is for? Money in the Bank was earlier this month and we already have Battleground this Sunday with Summerslam two weeks after that. But with the WWE Network, they can do one every week for all I care. Ten bucks a month … Read More

Nerd Is As Nerd Does – The Pagemaster


As a child, one of my favorite movies in the whole world was The Pagemaster, for a variety of reasons: I loved books, the voice cast was beyond my wildest dreams, I bore a striking resemblance to Macaulay Culkin in glasses, dragons are awesome, bullies were also a problem for me, and Christopher Lloyd is a personal hero of mine. … Read More

See The Trailer For Alien: Isolation DLC “Crew Expendable”, Featuring The Voices Of Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt & Yaphet Kotto


  Alien: Isolation was already near the top of my list for new games this year. Everything I have seen from the new game by The Creative Assembly made me believe that they knew just what Alien fans were expecting, especially after being violated by Gearbox with Aliens: Colonial Marines. Now with the DLC titled Crew Expendable, they have taken another … Read More

7 Consoles You Probably Thought Were Sh**, And You Were Right


Atari Jaguar -Because nothing says “reclaiming past glory” like a “64-bit” console with a controller that actually makes less sense than using a computer keyboard. Alien vs. Predator was admittedly awesome, but White Men Can’t Jump… Magnavox Odyssey -Gets obvious points for being the first home console, but loses them all for having no sound and controllers that looked like … Read More

Hulk Hogan Was The Third Man- 18 Years Ago Today


It was 18 years ago today that Hulk Hogan turned on his fans and formed the N.W.O. with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. How time flies when you have tried to erase the last decade of John Cena from your brain. Call it what you will. Wrestling’s Pearl Harbor (too soon?), the night that changed wrestling forever, whatever you want, … Read More

Nerd Is As Nerd Does- Writing On The Wall


I’ve been doing a lot of writing exercises lately, and the more I do – and the more I try to write on my creative pieces on the side – the more I realize that fiction may not be for me. It’s not that I don’t think I’m “talented” enough to write fiction, and there are certainly stories bouncing around … Read More

Nerd Is As Nerd Does- Twitch TV


A while back Erich and I finally managed to get the Twitch.TV app for the Xbox One to work; the idea is that it allows players to broadcast their play sessions live, while other players can watch and participate via chat. I have openly mocked the idea of people who spend any significant amount of time watching live-streams of competitive … Read More

Review: Slight Return


All honesty up front about this review- I have a small part in it. So I am reviewing this with some bias. It would be a complete lie to say I could do so otherwise. In 1999, two teenagers made a crime drama called Revolver Action. It was a VHS wonder that would never see the light of day beyond … Read More

Money In The Bank 2014 Predictions


Hey, what do you know? A wrestling post. I know, I know. I am behind, but Money in the Bank is Sunday so I figured we would go through the card to see what will go down when all the lights are turned off and all the ladders have been broken. Plus, there are only four matches announced so far, … Read More

EA’s UFC Glitches Prove Better Than The Game


While EA’s first UFC game is receiving middling to decent reviews, the glitches in the MMA title are worthy of a perfect score, especially when watched with commentary by (fake) Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan. Be careful watching this around people. I laughed till I cried, I sh** you not. “Alex goes for the leg, gets a hold of a … Read More

Nerd Is As Nerd Does- Wanderings


I just got back from a late-afternoon walk, something I’m trying to do now that winter has released its grasp from “North of the Wall.” At a recent physical, the doctor told me that I am in moderate shape, but I need more physical activity; unsurprisingly, hours spent in front of a television, monitor, or even a good book do … Read More

Empire Covers For Guardians Of The Galaxy, Plus A Surprise At The End


Empire Magazine has revealed their covers for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The first features the heroes Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel).

E3 2014- Damn, Is 2015 Going To Be Awesome


    E3 is over. While that may make you sad to hear, remember that E3 is not the end all of gaming shows. Hell, if we are being honest it is barely holding onto third best show after Gamescom and PAX and followed by TGS in fourth. If this year’s E3 taught us anything it was that 2015 is … Read More

Review: Mario Kart 8


A little bit of a warning here at the beginning. This won’t be a long, in-depth review of the why’s and where’s, ins and outs of Mario Kart 8. I know some of you are breathing a sigh of relief (or have already scrolled down to the score), and I have a good reason for this: It’s Mario Kart…and it’s … Read More
