A Not-A-Review Review of Wonder Woman

6 Jun

This is not a review. I have to start out with that because I am not a film critic, at least no more than the next Average Joe, nor am I qualified to review a film by talking about the elements that were done to create it. What this is is a collection of the thoughts I had while watching Wonder Woman and afterwards. The simplest way to describe my reaction is this- I loved it. Stop now if you haven’t seen the film as I cannot be held responsible for any spoilers found herein.

Supergirl season 1… I believe a girl can fly!

27 Aug

Not gonna lie- I started watching Supergirl when it premiered and after a few weeks it went to the DVR back burner… not because it wasn’t fun but it conflicted with another show and I’m lazy. But with the recent release of season 1 on DVD I’ve been binging.

And it has been a most pleasant binge. Continue reading

I watched BATMAN V SUPERMAN: THE ULTIMATE EDITION!

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

Another WonderCon survival story!

20 May

I’ve been sitting on my thoughts about WonderCon 2016 for a bit now because I was bitter about being there alone this year… but that wasn’t WonderCon’s fault. So I’ve decided to draft my thoughts and just move on.

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.

Hate to keep harping on this but… Come on people! Girls like cool toys, too!

14 Mar

It wasn’t that long ago that we, and many more, were protesting the lack of Rey in the new Star Wars toys. Then I was excited to hear about the new toy line from DC for Superhero Girls. Finally, some toys aimed at girls to encourage play, imagine, and that they are just as awesome as the little boys who’ve always had those toys.

Well, I was wandering Target the other day and I found the toys. On an end cap in the back and tucked a little into the end of an aisle… Continue reading

Guest Post!~ A Sampling of Select SDCC Panels!

1 Aug

This year, NerdLush had no staff on the ground at SDCC so we adopted one, in his own words-

My name is Asher Johnson. I am currently a graduate student in Clinical Psychology mentored by Dr. Janina Scarlet. My interests include Forensics, Personality Assessment, and Superheroes. Currently, I am working on a project in which I will be combining Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with Superheroes to reach the inmate population in order to cultivate empathy and compassion. I grew up with a love for Superman, Hulk, Rocky Balboa, and Star Wars episodes IV, V, and VI (specifically Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Darth Vader)… recently I’ve developed an equally special appreciation for Dr. Who. I’ve learned several values from these characters, with the initial lesson being that strength is found within the depth of pain—no matter what that source of pain is. Pain is a necessary force in life. It keeps us alive. It reminds us that we aren’t dead, which gives us the hope of a better tomorrow. The second lesson is the value of humility. Humility is the greatest force of life. Many might argue that love is the greatest force, but perhaps love and humility are one in the same. It takes humility/ to do all the things that superheroes do, such as sacrifice, persevere, see others through the lens of compassion and love, and hope. Third, I have learned the value of wisdom and humor. The two really do go hand in hand. Teachable moments are so much more impacting and longstanding with the patience and kindness of humorous, but wise advice. The fourth and final lesson I’ve learned is the greatness of resilience. We don’t have to be strong all the time to survive, but we do need to know how to cope, stay centered, and be accountable. If we do this, we won’t forget who we are and then we are easier able to find purpose.

What is your must read COMIC?

29 May

The boys of NerdLush are the ones to usually talk about comics around here, but I have my own little collection, too. And it got me wondering- what books do you pick up every week? And what web comics do you follow? Continue reading
