Seriously, what is happening in the Nerdverse with the name Chris right now? Actually, now that Gen X has had two decades to make and influence pop culture, I’m not sure we can limit the popularity of the Marvel movies and other sci-fi/comic book endeavors to just nerds, so let me put it this way: [...]
Finally I got to see some new trailers on the big screen (along with some not so new ones). In order of excitement and anticipation-
Guillermo del Toro’s Mama

One of the few movie trailers for scary movies that actually have scared me. I got goosebumps and freaked out during this trailer. I [...]
Snow White and the Huntsman offers a Brothers Grimm-meets-Lord of the Rings version of the classic fairy tale about the tormented princess who has skin as white as snow and the misfortune of being more fair than an evil queen, her stepmother, bent on youth and beauty. Starring [...]
There are plenty of reviews of The Avengers out there, and we certainly have done our part to give our input on the comics and origin films for each character in our Avengers Boot Camp series. Therefore, we figured – [...]
One of the most anticipated films of 2012, The Avengers brings together a gaggle of super-heroes introduced (or re-introduced) to audiences over the last three years in their own movies. There is a lot to keep track of, so we are continuing our “boot camp” with Thor!

A quick note on spoilers: It is almost impossible to write a review of this movie without giving anything away, but let me assure you that I will stick only to what is revealed to audiences in the very first scene of the film and the previews.
Here we are, practically in the 2000-teens!

The fourth and final of the origins stories leading up to next summer’s The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger introduces audiences to Steve Rogers, a (very) “small guy” from Brooklyn looking for a way to serve [...]
Man, did I not have high hopes for Thor. The trailer left me with an overwhelming sense of, “meh” and a fair amount of disappointment that after two highly enjoyable films, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers origin stories were about to turn a little lame.
I was…mistaken. I was very mistaken. This is [...]
