The Geek Down
Geek Down 1-14-20 - The Mandalorian, 6 Underground, Scratcher (done)
The most hardcore babysitter, the most intense therapy session, and the most ill-conceived body-art since that Romney-face-tattoo kid! THE MANDALORIAN is the Western that every other Star Wars property should have been. The indie comic SCRATCHER gives us tattoos, demons, ex-cons, stalkers, and a one-armed priest... I don't what they were on when they wrote this, but I hope they're sharing. And Michael Bay teams with Ryan Reynolds to make the biggest, loudest, craziest action movie you'll ever sleep through - 6 UNDERGROUND. In the house: Shayna Wakefield, Manda, Pat B
Geek Down 1-7-20 - The Witcher, Ip Man 4, Overdrive 2
The cats are getting weird, the gangs are getting wild, and one little girl is getting Westerosian on your ass! IP MAN 4 pushes "old man strength" to it's limits for the sake of specified, compartmentalized racial equality. OVERDRIVE 2 is the first hack & slash game to make you look forward to the ad breaks. And Netflix's THE WITCHER is the good parts of Hercules and Xena, plus the sex of Game of Thrones, minus the dragon-teasing. ...Bring a towel! In the house: Shayna Wakefield, Jere Pilapil, Pat B
Geek Down 12-31-19 -Cats, His Dark Materials, Reprisal
The cats are getting weird, the gangs are getting wild, and one little girl is getting Westerosian on your ass! CATS brings an all time favorite Broadway show to it's controversial, catastrphic, calamitous film debut. Hulu's REPRISAL shows how one woman's wrath can bring down an empire... with impeccable style! Not to be outdone, HIS DARK MATERIALS reopens the pandora's box of The Golden Compass.
Geek Down 12-24-19 - Watchmen, Star Wars Rise of Skywalker, Jumanji Next Level, Snifter of Terror
Get your mask on, your balls out, and keep fine crystal handy -- just in case some royals need dispatching. STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER puts a lid on four decades of divisive nerdy fanfiction. JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL prays some star power will help lightning strike twice. EDGAR ALLEN POE'S SNIFTER OF TERROR is gross fun for the whole spooky family. And HBO's WATCHMEN brings the future of pseudo-superheroing to it's knees!
Geek Down 12-17-19 - Zombieland Double Tapper, Nancy Drew, Second Coming
In the house: Shayna Wakefield, Pat B, Joshua Allen About to get dead, undead, ressurected, and sacreligious on that ass! Superman teaches Jesus to kick ass, and Jesus teaches Superman to take names in the indie comic SECOND COMING! Also surviving the mobile game ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAPPER will give you carpal-tunnel. And if NANCY DREW isn't dead or in jail, it's probably thanks to help from her psychic friends.
Geek Down 12-10-19 - Knives Out, BDSM, The Irishman, Black Hammer 45
In the house: Shayna Wakefield, Pat B, Jere Pilapil, Rocco Pepe BLACK HAMMER '45 is a multicultural supernatural wartime beatdown, complete with giant mechs, lightning Gods, French people -- ALL the legendary creatures! Then we pause for a little bdsm... yes, the indie game BIG DRUNK SATANIC MASSACRE left us both pained and a little ashamed. The star-studded murder mystery KNIVES OUT was enough to point us back in the right direction, and then twist us in a hundred new mind-boggling directions. And finally Martin Scorsese's THE IRISHMAN answers the questions we stopped asking decades ago.
