Flavours of Nerd #3: Sherlockians

Flavours of Nerd #3: Sherlockians

Last week I wrote about the TV-Show Elementary. It is a modern retelling of the classic Sherlock Holmes stories. But Elementary is by far not the only one who works with these stories. There are several other tv-shows, movies, books and even video games. All of this caused another flavour of Nerd: the Sherlockians.   The beginning of Sherlockians I don’t dare to say that the classic Sherlock Holmes stories […]

Flavours of Nerd #2: Book Nerd

Habitat and behaviour The common book nerd has a much higher female than male population. The natural habitat of a book nerd is a Library or a Bookstore but you can find them basically everywhere if you know what to look for. Male species prefer to devour nourishment with informational content. That’s the reason why you can often see them reading Newspapers or non-fiction books, less common are fantasy books […]

The Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad (Movie-Review)

Plot: The government forms a secret elite team out of supervillains with special abilities. One of them is Will Smith and one of them is Harley Quinn also known as Jokers girlfriend. They are forced to go on a suicide mission or get killed. So basically a win-win situation…not. In this DC comic adaptation, the Joker is portrait by Jared Leto. I probably wouldn’t have figured that out if I […]

X-Men: Apocalypse (Movie-Review)

Last week I went to see X-Men: Apocalypse with a friend and his wife. We watched it in 3D, IMAX in English. When I spend a lot of money for a movie ticket I want it to be worth it and not just be a bigger screen and more people. I will make this Review as Spoiler free as possible except the things that can be figured out by looking […]

Marvel Cinematic Universe Challenge Update #1

Seven Weeks ago I told you about the Marvel Cinematic Universe Challenge I was planning to do. Today I will tell you how it went. First the most important part: I did it! There is only one thing still missing right now which is the season finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D which should have aired last night. But other than that I completed the challenge in strictly chronological order with […]

Captain America – Civil War (Review)

Last week I went to see Captain America – Civil War on the first possible day. I got to see it in IMAX 3D because I thought if I watch it in the cinema (and pay a lot of money) then there should be an added bonus to it other than just watching it on a bigger screen. The only downside was, that the 3D glasses started to hurt my […]

5 Things to look forward to in Final Fantasy XV

Last week I found the Platinum Demo of Final Fantasy XV in the Playstation Store and immediately wanted to try it. It is there probably for a while now but lately I was trying to stay away from the PS4 as I am trying to get things done for the Shop. I am a big fan of Final Fantasy even tho I missed most of the games there are. I […]

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Challenge

I have to admit something to you. I have a history with Challenge announcements. I announced quite a few Challenges publicly in the past and then never got around to finish them. But this time it is different! (That’s what they always say!). But now let me tell you about the Challenge I am planning to do this time. Monday night I found a great graphic by Geekritique which is […]

Ghostbusters reloaded – YAY or NAY?

Last week Sony released the Official Trailer for the new Ghostbusters Movie on Youtube. I have mixed feelings about it and I will explain why. But first, let’s watch the Trailer together: Sooo…what do you think? If you are anything like me you are probably confused. Let’s split it up in pro’s and con’s. Pro – Girl Power Ever since the Spice Girls became famous I am all in for […]
