Undead Cinema: Alien, a Space Horror

I love films that make us cry, I love films that make us laugh, but horror films for some reason rarely resonate with me. I just am not a fan of red karo and absolutely gratuitous bloodbaths built solely to give the actors a messy wardrobe. So when horror films [...] The post Undead Cinema: Alien, a Space Horror appeared first on Land of the Nerds. Source

Why you NEVER want to watch Firefly

Once upon a time, there was a crappy little tv show on the Fox Network that kept interfering with baseball and other, more important television shows. This show, the ‘cult classic’ known as Firefly, was a stinker. Let me tell you why this show only lasted one season. 1. The Theme Song. The song, called ...   Source

Dubbing Anime: Voice Actor Panel at Space City Con

I have a few friends (who I am leaving anonymous) who hate anime dubbing. I, personally, have never had a strong opinion either way. I am a “Casual” anime watcher. I will watch an anime if I find one that has an interesting plot, a story that sucks me in, or has really good art.

Exploring Dr Who: Watching the show for the first time.

As many of you guys and ladies know, I have never really taken the time to sit down and I am now exploring Dr Who. Who.

Exploring Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor

In this edition of Exploring Doctor Who, I am going to talk about the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant. As a wildly popular Dr. Who incarnation, there is a lot out there already about the Tennant Years, and I really do not want to just post another rewrite of everything about David Tennant as […] The post Exploring Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor appeared first on Land of the Nerds. <a href="http://landofnerds.com/2013/11/04/exploring-doctor-tenth-doctor/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=

Lars Andersen: a new level of archery

This amazing archer is a site to see.  I myself have fired many a bow and arrow and never considered that I might be doing it wrong. Lars shows the proper historical and long forgotten methods of firing a bow.  This guy even out fires the legendary skill shots of Robin Hood.   Source

Friends: The one where Moon Sedai Knows Everything

Ever since Netflix started streaming Friends, I’ve been slowly making my way through the catalog of the show with fond nostalgia. The show was funny, quirky, and spoke to the viewers on many levels. The show managed to do quite a few things well, but there are also a few aspects of the show that ...   Source

Star Wars versus Star Trek

Star Wars fans are a different breed of people then Star Trek fans. I notice this as an outsider looking in at the two genres. Growing up I was not allowed to watch mainstream TV or go to the movies. I did not see Star wars until I graduated Boot Camp in 1989, 12 ...   Source

What makes a strong female character? First in a series

One thing I often find when I’m reading about Sci/Fi or Fantasy novels, television shows, movies, et cetera, is the discussion of how Sci Fi and Fantasy produces Strong Female Characters!” However, what methods do we use to determine the strength of a female character? Who makes the list, and who doesn’t? Who shouldn’t make [...] The post What makes a strong female character?

Ten Things I Hate about Who Stuff about Doctor Who that Annoys this Fan

If you’ve been following the Dr. Who blogs on this site, you’ll know I’m a fairly recent convert to the world of Dr. Who. And for the most part, 99 percent of the time, I love the show. I really do. But, sometimes, just sometimes, mind you, there are aspects of the long-running scifi show […] The post Ten Things I Hate about Who Stuff about Doctor Who that Annoys this Fan appeared first on Land of the Nerds. <a href="http://landofnerds.com/2013/12/29/doctorwhohate/?utm_source=rss&

Risking my First Cosplay

I have gone to cons for the last 13 years, or maybe it is twelve…it is a lot either way.

Series Review: The Kate Daniels Series by Ilona Andrews

“The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and ...   Source

Fifty Shades of “Giggling” : A Movie Review

Let me start this review be saying that I never read the book Fifty Shades of Grey but I did enjoy the film. (Now wait hear me out.) It is not some Oscar winning drama or romance movie. I laughed, not at the ridiculous dialog or the paper thin story, but where they actual placing real ...   Source
