Now Geek This Reviews Avengers: Age of Ultron

nowgeekthisIn this edition of Now Geek This, I will be reviewing a movie you may have heard of called Avengers: Age of Ulton.  Age of Ultron is the sequel to the 2012 mega Marvel hit Avengers, and the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Age of Ultron is directed by the incomparable genius, Joss Whedon, and stars a cavalcade of stars reprising their Marvel roles, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Chris Hemsworth as the thunder go Thor, as well as a few new characters such as the Scarlet Witch played by Elisabeth Olson, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver.  Of course, let’s not forget the amazing James Spader as the voice of the titular villain, Ultron.

The real question regarding this movie is whether it is a brilliant sequel, like Empire Strikes Back or Godfather II, or does is suffer the fate of so many inferior movie sequels?  Read on to find out True Believer! More

Now Geek This: Star Wars, Avengers, and Batman Vs. Superman…..Oh my!

nowgeekthisWell, it certainly has been quite a week to be a geek, has it not?  We’ve had a deluge of geekery thrown at us this week, a veritable monsoon if you will.  There has been so much excitement this week, I could swear that the geek center of my brain was going to explode.  I don’t know if I can take much more geeky goodness, but, I am certainly willing to test that limit if any more newsbits should happen to be released.  Now then, let us discuss some of those tasty morsels, shall we?

Now Geek This: Geek Bites

nowgeekthisHello, and welcome to another edition of Now Geek This.  I had originally wanted to write a review of the movie Jupiter’s Ascending, but it seems the gods have transpired against that succeeding.  I live in New England, currently known as the ice planet Hoth, where we have been hit by record breaking snowstorms in the past two weeks leaving us buried in over five feet of snow.  Between the constant shoveling of snow, and the fact that I have been sick with a cold, or what I hope is a cold at least, I have unfortunately not had time to go to see the movie this week.  In addition, I don’t have a Tauntaun to carry me to the theater either.  So, I will not be writing the review I had hoped to write, but I realized that I have some thoughts on things that have been going on in the geek world.  I thought I would write an article covering some of these things, and so here you have my tasty Geek Bites to tide you over during this mini-Ice Age.  Enjoy!

Now Geek This: Marvel Movie Madness!

 nowgeekthisIt is a good time to be a Marvel fan.  As a longtime comic book reader, and a huge Marvel fan going back to my childhood days, it has always been a dream of mine to see my favorite Marvel superheroes on the big screen.  For the first half of my life, that dream seemed impossible.  Marvel’s rival, DC comics had a couple of good movies under their belt starring their biggest characters like Superman and Batman, yet Marvel had nothing to offer their fans  but failed attempts or cheesy interpretations of their characters.

Now Geek This: A Review of Guardians of the Galaxy

nowgeekthisWelcome to another exciting edition of Now Geek This.  This week, I will be reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy, the latest addition to the Marvel cinematic universe.  Guardians is written and directed by James Gunn, and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and wrestler Dave Bautista, along with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

I have been excited for the release of this movie since the first moment I found out Marvel would be making a film based on the lesser known Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series.  For a long time, it seemed like an impossible task to bring one of Marvel’s “fringe” series to the big screen, and to be honest, I was concerned that this movie would be a disaster.  I am very happy to say, after seeing the box office numbers, that I was completely wrong in my assumption.
