captain marvel with glowing eyes

Hooo, boy!  Last night, Marvel Studios treated us to a brand new trailer for the 20th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Captain Marvel. We’ve talked about Captain Marvel before on this site, and this extended trailer continues to promise a spacefaring epic about an amnesiac fighter pilot from Earth. Let’s take a dive into the trailer and see what we learned. It’s Marvel.  They’re all quippy. And you’re Kree: a race of noble warriors. — Heroes. Noble warrior heroes. *playful smirk* My fear from the first trailer was that Carol seemed slightly robotic — stiff in her movements and fairly humorless. Carol is all business,Read More →

game of thrones jaime lannister cersei lannister

Content warning: this post contains mentions of sexual violence and rape. Do you remember that Bryan Adams song from the 90s? (Everything I Do) I Do It for You? That song could easily describe Jaime Lannister’s feeling for his twin sister Cersei. Though he comes off as confident and cocky at the beginning of the show, every major action of his can be traced back to his love for Cersei. Shove a 10-year-old boy out a window? Done to hide Cersei’s secret. Beat his own cousin to death in order to escape from the Stark’s camp? Done so he can get back to Cersei. RefuseRead More →

Hey, Geeks. Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. It’s Halloween, and I bet at least 70% of you reading this have already watched Hocus Pocus at least once this season, and that it’s one of those things you do every year.

game of thrones sansa stark

It’s easy to argue that Sansa Stark transformed more than any other character in Game of Thrones. She’s gone from a naive brat to a wise leader. Some of this is simply because of all the horrible things that have happened to her, but it’s also because she had the two best teachers that Westeros could offer — Cersei Lannister and Petyr Baelish (aka Littlefinger). It would be easy for someone to spend time around these two characters and not learn a thing. So, what makes Sansa a good student? She’s a good listener. Aspiring Princess When the show begins Sansa wants nothing more thanRead More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. The new season of Supernatural premieres today and way, WAY too many of you are excited about that. Let’s talk about where you went wrong. Complacency is No One’s Friend Supernatural started off with a pretty cool premise. Two brothers that are surprisingly easy to love bond while fighting demons and daddy issues in equal measure. Good times. And in the beginning, it was a great ride. There was a specific demon with a specific weakness. The brothers grew and changed and learned to face this adversaryRead More →

game of thrones arya stark melisandre

Many of the exciting reunions we can expect in the final season of Game of Thrones are from characters who have a lot of history between them. But there are two characters who interacted for less than a minute, and their reunion has the potential to be one of the most interesting. Those two characters are Arya and Melisandre. The Meeting Arya and Melisandre meet when the latter comes to take Gendry away to use his blood to help Stannis. By that time Arya has significant feelings for Gendry, even though they may be completely plutonic. Once she learns Melisandre plans to take him away,Read More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. It took 12 seasons, but The Big Bang Theory is ending. And honestly, at this point, I’m just wondering what took so long. Let’s talk about why it caused more harm than good.   The Big Bang Theory is Really Just a Show About Stereotyping. And Not the Stereotyping You Should Expect. Look. I get it. The Big Bang Theory is supposed to be a positive representation of nerd culture. The poster children for the ‘losers’ that don’t normally get to be the hero or evenRead More →
