Evil Movie Review: Transformers – Age of Extinction

cover tf

Greetings Geeks!

It has been far too long since we last spoke. Unfortunately, I have nothing but bad news for you, as I review this summer’s blockbuster, Transformers: Age of Extinction. I spoke about this movie quite a bit a couple weeks back on our podcast, but I figured that I’ve settled down a little bit and could expand my rant! How can a summer blockbuster have anything negative associated with it, you ask? Well, the answer to that question and more other frustrating things about this movie are awaiting you.

A brief bio-graphical history of my love for the Transformers

It was 1986, a rainy day in Astoria Queens. I was really, really bored. After annoying the crap of my parents, they took to me to the local video rental store to get a movie. When I walked in my eyes were focused on the children’s section and I ran over as fast as I could, anxious to see what I could find. They I saw it. It was a volume set of the first 9 episodes of the Transformers cartoon. I took home those 3 VHS tapes, loaded them in my VHS player, pressed play and instantly fell in love. From there I was hooked. My love for the Transformers started with the G1 series and spread to the toys, comics, other cartoons, video games and most recently the live action movies. There aren’t many things that I am very knowledgeable or passionate about in this nerd multi-verse we live in, but I do know Transformers and I know when to call something out for the disappointing load of garbage that it is.

That being said

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Disney Infinity

iOS_Disney_Infinity_01

Greetings Geeks!

If you grew up in the 80’s like I did, you probably bought some games and were disappointed, because some of them sucked. How were you to know? It’s not like you could play a demo. Not too long ago gamers bought games at a risk. You won some, you lost some. Licensed games were even more of a risk. Flashy covers and a big brand name were all that was needed to sell a game back then. There was one license worth betting on and that was Disney. Disney offered so many titles that you were bound to stumble upon a good one. By the way, Ducktales is by far the undisputed champion.

Recently, Disney has come up with a new way to suck even more money out of you, and unlike many of its other properties, this is worth every penny. Disney INFINITY was released in August and has been in my home since September. Early sales have been good. The company release sales records over the two week launching period, which indicated roughly 300,000 starter packs sold. That’s really good considering what they were offering (MonstersUniversity, Cars, The Incredibles and the Lone Ranger).

Cover of the Day 10/20/13

Comic Book Panel of the Day- 10/20/2013

Good afternoon geeks!

Today’s panel of the day highlights the awesome cover artwork of none other than Jim Lee. On the cover of X-Men #3, we have members of all X-men teams fighting each other on Asteriod M. This issue was a apart of the Mutant Genesis story arc, that launched this new X-Men title back in the 90’s. I remember buying this book and freaking out over the cover that was super cool! In an era where good guys only fought bad guys, this was a nice change from the norm . Hope you enjoyed it. Stay geeky internet!

Evil Geek Book Report – Thor God of Thunder # 6

Greetings Geeks!

Thor-God-of-Thunder-1-Cover-Wrap-Around-Jason-Aaron-Esad-Ribic-Dean-White-VCs-Joe-Sabino-Marvel-Now-Trinity-Comics-November-2012
In an era of comics where heroes often fight each other, it’s nice to see the introduction of some new villains. It’s remarkable how five issues could have established a significant rivalry, which feels as old as any feud you can remember in the Marvel universe. The storytelling and the art, make Thor: God of Thunder, stand out as one of the best books Marvel currently has to offer. The latest issue of Thor gives a look into the origin of Gorr the God killer. For the past five issues, we’ve been introduced to this brand new villain, and it’s been a pleasure getting to know how sick, twisted and powerful he is. But the real question is what fuels his immense hatred for all gods? Those answers and more are coming. Read the rest of this entry
