Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter X

11 Jul

Stewart here…

My NerdLush boss and I had a bizarre quandary to solve: an X-titled film none of us have seen.  There is the X-Men movies, the X-Files movies, heck, even the xXx movies that we have seen.  On the latter end, I was almost ready to bite the bullet and see the new xXx film for here (I ultimately did for a future post in my own blog, but that’s a story for another time), until I realized there is one X-titled movie I know neither of us have seen, but as I asked politely to fill in, I’ll talk about it.  And no, it is not Xanadu (I got hard lines in the sand I refuse to cross, and that’s one).  That movie is the recent horror anthology XX!

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter S

19 May

I’m a bit late with this one… sorry about that but I got caught up in Netflix. I’m back, though, and this week I decided it was time for something ridiculous- Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse!

Halloween has come and gone…

3 Nov

Not much happened for NerdLush in the way of scares this year. There was a friendly movie night with screenings of Slither and Cabin in the Woods, but that was pretty much it until this weekend when on vacation to the city of Angels.

A visit to the entertainment capitol of the world- or at least that’s the claim- came full of shrieks and screams as Universal Studios Hollywood was once again transformed into “Halloween Horror Nights”. Of the four in the party, all but one had been before, and two were not fans of things jumping out and scaring them. But the end report from all four was that it was a good and fun evening of scares.

Annabelle is a prequel to The Conjuring which was a surprise horror hit from last year directed by James Wan. This time around, John R. Leonetti, whose previous directing efforts include Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and The Butterfly Effect 2, takes the reins of what could turn into the latest genre franchise. The movie stars Annabelle Wallis (Yes, her name is Annabelle), Ward Horton, Tony Amendola, and Alfre Woodard. Continue reading

My Latest Obsession- part 4

15 Sep

And I’m back with the 4th of 5 posts regarding all the things ever (or at least the ones available to me in the US) done by Karl Urban. You’ve read 1, 2, and 3, right? There might be a quiz later.

My Latest Obsession- part 1

20 Aug

My mother would say I am easily amused. I would add to that with the admission that I am easily obsessed. Since I wrote my post reviewing Almost Human for AFC, I have been consumed by a need to see all the things done by Karl Urban. All the things. Even the terribly horribly bad ones- of course, we know I love those bad movies, so I know this surprises no one.

Not gonna lie… Karl Urban is pretty damn awesome. Continue reading

It’s fun to be scared! ~ NerdLush goes to ScareLA

14 Aug

You guys have been around for a while- you know there are two things that we at NerdLush LOVE ~ conventions and Halloween. Well, there’s a new convention in town that happens to be all about Halloween! WIN!

ScareLA celebrated it’s first year with a convention in downtown LA, at the LA Mart. They took up the 2nd floor of the building with classes, workshops, panels, presentations, and booths. Emily and I opted for the cheapest, one day ticket, and so we did not have access to participate in the classes or panels, but we could wander the hall (through the booths) and around the workshop areas (to see the various projects being taught/done) and sit at the stages to enjoy the presentations.
