Too many trailers, too many teases

24 Feb

Today, I want to talk about why I never watch trailers and hate casting spoilers. Whenever a new movie or tv show starts teasing something upcoming, they release teasers and trailers. They run on TV and before movies. We all know this, right? Well… I hate them. Mostly.

I know. Unpopular opinion. But I have my reasons. Continue reading

An Ode to Brandon Routh

6 Mar

As his run on Legends of Tomorrow comes to an end, it seems appropriate to take a few minutes and appreciate all that is Brandon Routh as he flies off to the next endeavor. I, personally, will miss his adorable sweetness and charm on the show, but am looking forward to whatever he does next.

Big or small, does size really matter?

7 May

Before Avengers: Endgame was released, I was talking to a friend about it and how excited I was to see it. He was excited, too. But then I reminded him that he hadn’t seen Captain Marvel yet (which, what the hell, dude?), so he couldn’t see Endgame for a bit still. He agreed and then said, “I’ll just wait til it’s streaming in a few weeks”. Continue reading

Some Thoughts and Plenty of SPOILERS on AVENGERS: ENDGAME!

6 May

Stewart here…

Well, I can only assume you have managed over the weekend to see the biggest thing of the summer so far (or maybe THE biggest thing of the summer), by somehow seeing Avengers: Endgame. If you have, I’ll be here to talk about the key points, call backs, and poignant deaths of this three hour epic film. If you haven’t yet, you should go ahead and do that now (it’s not like you’ll be hurting to find it at your local multiplex), because this be full of SPOILERS. So if you haven’t, come back later. I’ll wait.

Cinema Therapy, class is in session

29 May

So I can’t decide if this will be a semi-regular post series or just a one off but I wanted to talk about a tool I use in my work. As most followers of this site know, I work in mental health. What you may not be aware of is that I work with incarcerated men. A very interesting, and notoriously difficult, population.

Once I realized how my nerdy interest in super heroes could help me in my work with adolescent boys, I figured that it was worth a try to get a buy-in from the adults. And it worked. So I gained a bit of a rep and I’m the one the guys run up to when they want to talk comics or movies or what have you. Not only do I work with individuals but I also run therapeutic groups- more like psychoeducation groups but still, we have some awesome discussions. When I was finally at a point where I could create my own groups I decided to run “Cinema Therapy” groups. Continue reading

Heroes and Villains invade San Jose for another grand Fan Fest!

7 Dec

We had the opportunity to attend Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in San Jose for the second year recently. Since we weren’t there in a press/media or doing a panel capacity, it was a little strange and initially there wasn’t going to be a post about the convention. However, there were enough differences- and some issues we wanted to address- that it seems like a good idea to write something up. We had a great time, I want to make that clear- HVFF puts on a good show!

But… it could be better. Continue reading

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter Z!!!

13 Nov

And finally we’ve reached the end of this series. Perhaps I’ll do it again. As noted in my last post, HQ recently moved and in doing so I found even more DVDs that I own and have never watched. I really need to stop doing that. And to end the series, I thought we’d go out on a silly note- I give you Zerophilia.

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter Y

6 Nov

OK… well, this series of posts was meant to be over months ago, however in sort of a whirlwind NerdLush HQ moved. Like to another city. And life got a little whackadoodle. But I’ve finally had a chance to finish up, so let’s check in with the second to last… The Year That Trembled.
