Rest in Peace, Wes Craven


It’s with a heavy heart that I write this. Wes Craven passed away from a brain tumor at 76 last night. I know he definitely influenced all of us here at The Nerdicon. We still have Ghostface, Freddy, and the rest of the nightmares you left for us, Wes.

In Loving Memory of Maya Angelou


Maya Angelou was an innovator of the greatest magnitude. She shed light on the essence of life because she lived a quintessential mystical life, from brothels to the library of congress. The world needed to hear her song, as it is the path of compassion, empathy, and self-liberation. She gave the literary world the gift of autobiographical fiction, perhaps the cornerstone of 21st century literature.

“The chicken has flown the coup
Songs of freedom transcribed in motion
No longer an imitation of freedom
The brewing, stewing, frothing broth is set
Chicken soup for the mind and soul.”

​​​In loving memory of Maya Angelou: April 4, 1928- May 28, 2014

I Hate Space: A Gravity Review


gravity_ver2_xlg

When I first heard about Gravity I wasn’t too interested. It seemed like it would be a big explosion-fest and another in George Clooney’s long line of action vehicles.  I am also not the biggest fan of Sandra Bullock (editor’s note: YOU ARE FIRED, SIR). I have mostly seen her star in romantic/romantic comedy films and well, that’s the whole cast.  However, the first trailer I saw for it got me hooked.  That and it was going to be directed by the amazing Alfonso Cuaron.  He is known by some as the guy who ruined the third Harry Potter film.  However, i remember him as the director of the fantastic film “Children of Men.”  He really knows how to bring characters to life and his style of directing action puts you in the place of the person engaging in said action and makes you fear for your life not knowing what will happen to these character main or not.  That is what I was expecting and that is exactly what I got.

Graphically Awesome Weekly: Court of Owls, Harley Quinn, Riddler and more.


I read a good amount of comic books and most of them are on the DC side.  In this series, I will be reviewing books from my pull list.  The next few weeks will be overcrowded with books due to the fact that it is Villains Month at DC and they are putting out two or three of their main titles out every week focusing on different villains.  I will be reviewing books that have villains from my current pull list, or just villains that I love so much I had to pick it up.  Let’s begin, shall we?

ERMAHGERD HERRY PERTTER!


Okay, so as most of you know by now, JK Rowling has announced that she has made a deal with Warner Brothers studios to create a film based on Fantastic Creatures and Where to Find Them. Meaning: a film set in the world of Harry Potter. Meaning: WE GET MORE MAGIC, Y’ALL! WE GET TO SEE MORE DRAGONS (I hope) AND HIPPOGRIFFS (hopefully) AND ALL OF THE GREAT AWESOME CREATURES. It’s going to be set in New York 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter series. We get to see the American wizarding world. We get to see life pre-Voldemort. DO YOU GUYS UNDERSTAND HOW AMAZING THAT IS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Also, Rowling has the perfect screenwriter lined up for the film: herself. Who else would know that world better THAN THE PERSON WHO CREATED IT.

Sorry for the capslock. But I am a hardcore Potterhead. We ARE the fandom who waited. And now we get more of the world we want to live in.
