DC Recap Round-Up 3, SPECIAL EDITION: CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS (PART 1)

13 Dec

Welcome to the first of our special Recap Round-Ups on Crisis on Infinite Earths! There’s gonna be a lot of ground to cover, lots of team ups, lots of cameos, lots of surprises, and lots of deaths to cover for this one (making up the first three parts of this epic crossover), so let’s just get the basics out of the way. For the last year or so, we’ve had appearances by an alien being known as The Monitor, warning our heroes of a threat so immense it could destroy all of the multiverse! And now, things have lined up where that threat has come.

In the build-up, the Monitor recruited Oliver Queen and his friends (even bringing his grown children, Mia and William, from the future into the present) to prepare for the eventual multidimensional fight. Barry Allen has been living with the spectre of knowing The Flash will die because of this Crisis, and been preparing for that eventuality. And now, one of the Harrison Wells of the multiverse, Nash, may have just released said threat from its prison by accident! So, now the Crisis has begun! Continue reading

Guest Post~ How to raise Nerds!

29 Aug

Recent guest poster, and regular NerdLush BTS researcher/archivist, Barbara is back to share her thoughts on raising nerds. And speaking as one of the nerds she raised… she knows what she is talking about.

I raised nerds. I’m not quite sure how I did it but I am quite happy with the result. Continue reading

Justice League was… better than I thought.

8 Jan

This post may seem a little out of date, but I wanted to share my thoughts anyways…

I have seen a lot of comments the last month or so about Justice League being a failure. But I want to state otherwise. Sure, Warner Brothers and DC aren’t likely to have made their money back and may not make as much as they hoped by the time it leaves theaters but… here’s the thing- I have enjoyed only one DC film since Dark Knight Rises and that was Wonder Woman. Sure, I saw Man of SteelBatman versus Superman, and even Suicide Squad in the theater but they were crap movies and they pissed me off more than anything. Wonder Woman finally made me interested in DC films again and then the trailers for Justice League cemented that I was going to see this one in the theater (it was touch and go after Suicide Squad, honestly).

I watched BATMAN V SUPERMAN: THE ULTIMATE EDITION!

Stewart here…

Unlike our beloved NerdLush head honcho, I have not really discussed with you all my thoughts on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. So let me start off my saying that BvS is not the worst movie ever made (maybe the worst comic book movie of 2016, but that’s only SO FAR…), BUT there’s way too many pacing and story issues that don’t make it good. It’s like shoving 15 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag and realizing some important material fell out during the bag filling. So when I heard of a longer version coming to Blu-ray, I was guardedly excited. Continue reading

Save yourself and avoid Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 Apr

To start- you need to understand that this post is MY opinion and that if you differ from it, that’s A-OK because we are two different people. Also, I will not be holding back regarding what I’m going to discuss- so assume spoilers will be presented.

Now to the topic at hand- I have seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Fall Season Premiere Jamboree!

24 Sep

Stewart here, and be ready for spoilers on the horizon…

The fall season of TV starts once again, and Monday and Tuesday brought several nerd-related shows back on the air, along with a possible new addition to the ranks. Well, if to start easing myself into another season of minicaps for Arrow (and that’s still two weeks away), let’s talk about these NerdLush favorites, starting with the new kid in town.

Who are YOU really?

16 Jul

Have you ever watched a movie/TV show and flipped out because you are so used to seeing that actor as another character? For instance, Princess Diaries 2 pits Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) against Smallville‘s Major Zod (Callum Blue) for the hand of Catwoman (Anne Hathaway). It’s just weird.

I saw a meme a few months ago that hits home with this idea- Continue reading

Batman Day – 75th Anniversary

6 Jul

75-Years-of-Batman-Logo

Did you know Batman is almost 75 years old?
Did you know there’s a whole day dedicated to him?
Did you know DC are releasing a special comic just for this day?
Did you know there’s a raffle with HUGE prizes to be won, all to raise money for a Children’s Hospital?
Did you know the day all this happens in 23rd July?

Well you do now. Continue reading

Hear ye! Hear ye! Hey you- you like Batman, right?

8 Feb

Well, I know you do. And that means that I’m going to use today’s post to bring something to your attention.

Well, actually, not me- my friend Travis Langley is. You may know Dr. Langley from twitter as Superherologist, or from his book “Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight”. I know him from both, but also as a forensic psychologist (which is my field, as well) and someone I deeply respect.

Recently, Dr. Langley has been pushing for recognition for the silent creator of the Batman. What? You didn’t know Bob Kane had help? Well, you aren’t alone!

To help get the word out about Bill Finger and his role- especially as this year would be Finger’s 100th birthday- Dr. Langley and a few others in the know are working on a kickstarter to create a documentary.

I could say more, but honestly the kickstarter page says it so much better than I could. Please go, check out the campaign, consider contributing, and at the very least share the page with others! Help get the word out!

Holy cow, Batman!

Holy cow, Batman!
