Merry Christmas, Whovians! Being the Who-heads that we are, we’re keyed in on a little secret that most of the world doesn’t know about; that secret being that we all know the best part of Christmas isn’t the awesome presents, the great home cooked meals, or even spending time wit your family. All that stuff really makes for a great day, but the thing that really ties the holiday together is that you spend the whole day taking comfort in the fact that no matter how merry a Christmas you’re having, it’s only going to get better because there’s a brand new episode of Doctor Who on at the end of the day. You could be having the absolute best day of your life and just when you think it can’t possibly get any better, that’s when the Christmas special starts. Conversely, that yule tide blessing is also a mistletoe wrapped punch in the gut because the Christmas specials always have a way of leaving us in tears when it’s all said and done. This year, we’ll be hearing from a few of the Evil Geek Whovians regarding what they thought of the newest Christmas special. Word on the street is that this is going to be Clara Oswald’s curtain call, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed by the BBC as of the time of the writing of this article. Could it be that our stocking this year will be stuffed with thousands of tears as Clara’s ego maybe gets the better of her and lands her in a situation she isn’t able to wiggle out of. Will this be the Doctor and Clara’s last Christmas? Let’s find out!
Greetings Evil Geeks, it’s C-Mart here commandeering the TV From the Crypts column for the day to talk about one of my recent favorites, a British import featuring a young Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, with an equally young Edgar Wright handling the directing duties. Way back even before there was Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, or The World’s End, the trio were hard at work bringing us a sitcom called Spaced.
Greetings Evil Geeks, today’s Evil Movie Review is a movie that I’ve been waiting to lay eyes on ever since it’s title was cryptically announced via Twitter by two of the mega-talented stars behind it. I’m not normally one to pick a favorite of anything, I acknowledge that what I may be in the mood for one minute, might not be so favorable to me in the next, but if for some reason you were to put a gun to my head (let’s face it, there’s probably more than a few folks out there that would love to have C-Mart in that scenario) and forced me to pick a favorite movie of all time, the first entry in the Cornetto Trilogy, Shaun of the Dead would be a strong contender for the title that would eventually come out of my mouth. If there’s two things I love, it’s zombies and comedy; and Shaun is a masterpiece that blends the two seamlessly. While I hold Hot Fuzz in not quite so hallowed a spot, I still think it’s a fantastic movie. After years of waiting and even a wannabe member of the club with the movie Paul (which isn’t a bad movie at all in my opinion, it’s just that Edgar Wright wasn’t a part of it, so it’s forced to stand alone), the third installment of the trilogy is finally upon us with the release of “The World’s End”. How does it stack up against the others? Let’s start dissecting and find out!
