Evil Movie Review: Terminator Salvation and Genisys

Successfully completing my mission to watch all of the Terminator movies, I can finally bring you my reviews of the most recent two installments in the series. A combination of explosions, psychopathic futuristic machines, and time travel science fiction, I can see why a lot of people love these movies. And the pounding drums of the main (albeit simple) theme song instill both a feeling of fear, anticipation, and determination. Here’s my take on these last two films, from a Lilith perspective.

Evil Movie Review: Terminator 3 – Rise of the Machines

This lady is slowly chugging her way through the Terminator movies. Two more to go after this one. And today I want to give you my take on movie #3. Let’s just say I find it hard to believe it can get worse than this.

Evil Movie Review: The Terminator and Terminator 2 – Judgement Day

I think I was somehow accidentally transported to the 1980’s, since I have been catching up on some old classics like the original Star Trek series, and now here I find myself having finally (yes, as a 32 year old), finally watching the first two Terminator films. I won’t say it was by my choice, but I figured it was time to get up to speed on this series, seeing as how the upcoming film this summer stars Emilia Clarke and Matt Smith. I might as well understand all the background, and see what the Arnold hub-bub is all about. So here is my review of these first two films, with of course my feminine judgment and perspective.

The Evil Geeks Top 5 Thunderdome Throwdown: Our Dads Can Beat Up Your Dads Edition

Happy Father’s Day Evil Geeks! Dad’s come in all shapes and sizes. Geek culture is certainly in no short supply of classic father figures, whether good, bad or ugly, we got ’em all. It’s been awhile since we’ve done a Top 5 list so we thought what better time to do one than Father’s day? Consider this our tribute to all the nerd father’s out there.

5.) Norman Osborn

Genius, world class dick, criminally insane and a super villain, it would be difficult to keep Norman Osborn off this list. Well, Normy was never anyone’s notion of an ideal dad but he did pass his ridiculously strange hairline to his son Harry. Yes, Norman should have been a “better” dad, but in a very Hemingway-esque moment his wife died giving birth. That’s enough to resent your kid and lash out against him, right? It’s not, but I find Norman’s story to be an interesting one. If anything you can trace it back to his father, Ambrose the brilliant alcoholic who lost their family’s company and was down right abusive to them. Norman’s staying power within the Marvel U is no surprise, as he’s one of the most misunderstood, derided, twisted and fascinating characters. We just can’t seem to get enough of him.

If banging your son’s friend and spawning children, only to try kill her in a very public way (with Spidey inadvertently delivering the death blow) to cover up your secret and also traumatize your arch nemesis doesn’t scream dad of the year than I don’t know what does.
