Geeklings, to the delight of many of you I assume, 2021 is on life support. It’s strapped to the hospital bed and it’s ready to say goodbye before the plug is pulled. My only hope is that the spirit of 2021 doesn’t inhabit the body of 2022 which I can only assume is what happened at the end of 2020. This has been an endless … Continue reading Best of 2021 Part II
Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect. I don’t know, maybe it was watching The Many Saints of Newark or the upcoming release of Woke Up This Morning: The Definitive Oral History of the Sopranos or maybe it’s the fifteen-year anniversary of The Departed but I have been craving some mob-like, shady underground stories. The type where Al Pacino is complaining about … Continue reading The Book of Boba Fett Teaser- I Intend To Rule With Respect
On basic principle, Monday’s are tough. Weekend is over. Start of the workweek. The self-hate from eating alllll those Taco Bell tacos. Work clothes. The list goes on and on. No one wakes up and goes, “Yes! It’s Monday” unless you’re a serial killer or have a pet you named Monday which in turn is a strange pet name. Like, why?! Not to mention, this … Continue reading Hawkeye Trailer: Gifting Us the Musical We Deserve
On my last day of vacation, I decided to watch Return of the Jedi on Disney+. Normally, I refrain from watching this version of the film because it makes my inner Rancor rage for several reasons that aren’t limited to the concert at Jabba’s palace and ending with the lack of Ewok cartwheels to the tune of “Ewok Celebration”. The thing is, I’m also lazy … Continue reading This Year the Best Star Wars Can Be Found On Your Shelves
Is that Mephisto?! Dude, it has to be Reed Richards, right?! Who is the Power Broker?! Where are the mutants?! Wait, is Kang coming to the party?! When is the No Way Home trailer dropping?! If you haven’t asked any of these questions at least once over the last year, are you even paying attention to Phase Four of the MCU?! I say this in … Continue reading Spider-Man No Way Home Trailer- Variants, The Eye of Agamotto, & Pumpkin Bombs
It’s been about a week and a half since Loki melted all our minds and fractured the MCU in levels we didn’t think possible. Suddenly Thanos snapping half of existence out of the picture doesn’t seem like the worst thing in the world when compared to the potential of a multiversal collapse, does it? While we have a few weeks to digest what was discussed … Continue reading Wandavision & Loki Finales Sync Up- What Does This Mean For the Multiverse?!
The Shang-Chi trailer dropped a little less than a week ago and I’ve been practicing throwing water into the air and moving through it without getting wet to no avail since. At least I’m doing the practicing here in the comforts of my air-conditioned bedroom because lawd is it disgustingly hot outside. The type of hot where you leave the air conditioner on for Hudson … Continue reading Shang-Chi Trailer- Two Surprise Guests
This story starts where most of our current stories now begin… during the pandemic. It was a time of longer hair, apocalypse beards, beer deliveries, and a complete lack of seeing anyone who wasn’t the Mrs. or Hudson the Cat outside of a Zoom call. Times were bleak. Times were different. What else was there for us to do other than watch… Venom? Hey listen, … Continue reading Venom: Let There Be Carnage- A Buddy Comedy In the Making?
Geeklings, I’m really starting to enjoy these mailbag columns. Yes, I know it’s only the second one we’ve ever done buuuuuut it really helps in a week where work has my brain looking like mashed potatoes that were in the microwave for far too long. How does it help you ask? Well, my mush brain doesn’t have to come up with new content to write. … Continue reading I Am Geek Mailbag Vol. 2- MCU Phase Four
You can say a lot of things about the internet, and not all of it would be good, but there are days when it certainly delivers the goods. Especially on days where you’re just scrolling through your feed reading interviews with Anthony Mackie concerning the Falcon and the Winter Soldier finale. The internet is there to let us know of all the random special days … Continue reading National Superhero Day- Two Issues To Best Celebrate Spider-Man
