Mission to Veronica Mars

So there are a lot of interesting movies out right now and I’m sorry to say I haven’t had the time to go see them.  I had hoped to get into a pattern of a movie a week and had visions of actually having a regular post on SomewhatNerdy. School, however, had different plans.  But…

Batman: Gotham City Strategy Game Review

So everyone loves Batman, right? What am I saying? Of course everyone loves Batman! Batman is awesome in every way, shape and form, except for his ability to keep Robins safe.  But that aside, Batman rules; and what helps make him awesome? The villains he fights. So logically, a game about Batman villains should be…

Ocean’s Monuments

        Everyone loves war movies. It makes us feel proud and patriotic. People don’t always love movies about art, though.  It’s a niche market and the movies are usually so deep that James Cameron has considered taking a sub to the bottom.  These are movies like Pollock with Ed Harris and Frida…

The Movie That Was Built Brick By Brick

My hopes and expectations for the Lego Movie went through quite a few changes ever since it had been announced. At first, I was a bit angry. Though I love movies, I have a natural distrust of Hollywood. I was certain that they were going to screw up the movie… until I saw a trailer….

Her: A Review and a Warning

Every once in a while an art house film dreams of breaking out of the tiny niche film theaters and trying to make it on the same big screens and show summer blockbusters.  While those movies may have the critics drooling they sometimes leave your average theater goer scratching their head because there weren’t enough…

    Why hello there, fellow nerds! Please, come and sit while I regale you with yet another movie review! I had to see Anchorman 2. Not just for this blog, but because I loved the first one, and I’ll be honest with you, I was scared. How often does a popular movie come out…

The Hobbit: The Inconsistency of Smaug

There were plenty of other clever titles I came up with for this blog. The Desolation of Smug, The Defecation of Smaug, and … But I decided to go with the ultimately less clever but more accurate Inconsistency of Smaug. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was a fun movie but it was riddled with…

A Thortful Review

Thor: The Dark World came out and I knew I had to see it since my Ender’s Game review is going to be so late. I told myself “Self, You really have to watch more movies.” So I grabbed a friend and saw it and I have to say, I Thort it was quite good….

Good Grandpa or Bad Grandpa?

Let me be the first to tell you that I generally don’t like embarrassing comedies.  I shy away from them and shrink in my seat like Dorothy spilled water on me. That being said, I wasn’t planning on seeing Bad Grandpa. Lucky for me I have two friends that guilted me into seeing it.  I…

Don’t Underestimate The Gravity Of The Situation

  Sandra Bullock. That name creates pleasant memories for some who look upon her career fondly and remember The Blind Side and the first Miss Congeniality. Others are more indifferent as they remember such movies as Speed 2: Cruise Control or All About Steve.  The same thing goes for George Clooney, remember Batman and Robin?…
