Geek Nerdery – The Walking Dead Season 7 Recap

I grabbed my co-hosts from Challenged and we sat down to talk about this season of The Walking Dead.  One of us loved this season, one of us hated this season, and one of us was indifferent.  Things also take a weird turn as this was the second podcast we recorded this night and were already well into our stock of alcohol at this point.  It gets weird.

Thor Ragnarok Trailer Is Here!

The first trailer for Thor Ragnarok was just released.  I love it.  I feel like it’s taking a cue from the Guardians Of The Galaxy with the flashy retro font and colors along with the music but I don’t care.  I still love it. Plus we’re pretty much here on Planet Hulk.  Can’t wait to see them battle it out.  And Cate Blanchett looks amazing as Hela.  We see that Loki will be ringside for the battle of Thor and Hulk.  But what is not shown is what role Doctor Strange will play in the film.  What do you think of the trailer?  Are you excited?

Geek Nerdery Podcast: Top 5 Animated Batman Films

I am once again joined by Sometimes Co-Host Mike and Michael from the Awesome 80s Podcast as we’re breaking down our Top 5 Animated Batman Movies!  Some claim to have the best list of everyone, some made their list just before we started.

After all that we chat about Wrestlemania 33.   Is it really Undertaker’s final match?  And the guys give their reactions to the new trailer for Stephen King’s IT.

In usual podcast chaos Sometimes Co-Host Mike and I knock equipment around and my cat seems to ring its bell a lot which I did not noticed while recording.  We aim for high quality here!

Geek Nerdery Podcast: Summer Movies And Beyond

For the first episode of the official Geek Nerdery Podcast we take a look at what is coming to the cinemas for the rest of 2017.  What are we excited about?  What are we not?  Also we chat about some films we’ve already seen so far this year.

Joss Whedon To Direct Batgirl?

According to Variety Joss Whedon is in talks to jump over to DC and direct a standalone Batgirl movie.  So what does stand alone mean?  I don’t know as in the same article they say that it will be part of DC’s extended cinematic universe.  Who knows.

Usually I’m annoyed by news that so and so is “in talks” but I think this would be pretty big so wanted to comment on it.  What do you all think about Joss Whedon joining DC in bringing her to the big screen?

Of course Whedon has worked with them before trying to get a Wonder Woman movie off the ground.  He really wanted to set it during WWII and DC told him that a period piece Wonder Woman movie wouldn’t work and scrapped it.  My how times have changed.

Read the article for yourself:

New Poster And Trailer For Upcoming IT Remake

I’m a huge King nerd.  That’s not a secret.  I’ve been on record that I just don’t know about this IT remake.  Not that I don’t think they could improve on it with a higher budget and less restrictions but the big point of contention with me is Pennywise.  I mean how do you even come close to living up to Tim Curry’s performance?

Well we got our fist look at the new trailer and while everything looks good and it has a creepiness to it there is still no real look at the Pennywise performance.  We see some flashes of him and such but no dialogue and no real interaction with the characters.  But I know I’ll still be there opening weekend as since I’m a constant reader I have to.  Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

Scream Factory Releasing Teen Wolf And Teen Wolf Too Collector’s Editions This Summer

Everyone knows I’m a HUGE fan of Scream Factory and what they’ve been putting out.  Every time they announce a new title I know my wallet is going to start crying.  They put a lot of work into making sure the titles they put out are the best they can be.

So imagine my surprise when I logged into Facebook today and saw they are putting two of my childhood favorites out as collector’s editions this summer.  I don’t even know how many times I rented Teen Wolf and Teen Wolf Too in my video store days.  I loved those movies.  I’m excited to see what the special features will be.  For now they are just saying to expect them later this summer.  Cross your fingers and hope for a lot of van surfing in your future.

For now why don’t you head on over to Scream Factory and look as some of the other awesome titles they have in stock for you right now.

Capcom Brings Back The Disney Afternoon Collection

Get ready to relive your childhood in the best way possible.  Capcom is bring 6 titles back from their deal with Disney in the 80s and 90s.  For $20 you’ll get Ducktales, Chip N’ Dales Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and Talespin along with sequels to Ducktales and Rescue Rangers which I don’t remember but I am all about.

For younger players that don’t remember how hard games like these were they have put in special options like REWIND which can help you keep from accidentally jumping into the abyss which was always my problem.  I’d yell at my controller “I HIT JUMP DAMN IT!  WHY DID IT DO THAT!?!?!”

They’re beng released on XboX One, PS4 and PC on April 18th.  Are you excited for the return of these titles?

Geek Nerdery Trailer Park

Time again to check out some trailers from upcoming movies we’re excited to check out.

Baby Driver

I’m always up for some Edgar Wright.  I was sad when he departed Ant Man but it looks like he put his time after that to good use with Baby Driver.  Lots of car porn for those that enjoy such things and a star studded cast like Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, and Jon Hamm.  I can’t wait to check it out.

Wonder Woman

This one seems to focus a little more on her origin than the WWI setting that the film will be mostly taking place in.  I’m curious what origin they are going with in this version.

Atomic Blonde

It’s being called the female John Wick with I guess it has good reason as it’s directed by the same guy and the action seems pretty similar.  Charlize Theron gets all actiony while being backed up by Toby Jones, John Goodman, and James McAvoy.  Based on the Oni Press comic The Coldest City.  Looks like a lot of fun.

Duck Tales And TMNT News

I still love me some cartoons.  I’m sure people walking into my house as I’m sitting there in my gym shorts I use as pajamas, eating a bowl of cereal, and watching my cartoons are amused at why a 37 year old man would watch cartoons.  Hey, I still love the characters and the story telling is top notch.  Doesn’t matter to me that it’s animated.  But it’s time for some Good News/Bad News.

Good News:

The first trailer for the new Duck Tales series for Disney XD is out.  And it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.  Most important is we get to hear David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck for the first time.  And I gotta say I love it.  Perfect casting.

Bad News:
The newest TMNT cg animated show looks like it’s winding down with season 5 only to be replaced with an old school 2d animated version.  I’ve been a big fan of the show when it launched and I thought did a great job of incorporation of TMNT lore while also doing some things to make it all fresh again.  I’m bummed they are leaving this incarnation behind.  My guess would be the voice cast will be getting too expensive after the 5th season so it’s off for another reboot rather than shelling out (hehe see what I did there) for voice actors like Seth Green and Sean Astin to reprise their roles in future seasons.  Who knows.  Guess we’ll wait and see what the new show holds.
