  1. A Sci-Fi Whodunnit Must-Watch: ERASED

    ERASED-title

    “I’m scared to get to the heart of my own mind.” – Satoru Fujinuma, ERASED.

    Typical anime protagonists are high schoolers. Whether they’re saving the planet, or on the swim team, we rarely see a main character over the age of 17. Whenever an anime breaks this mold, it’s bound to stand out.

    ERASED is a true mold-breaker: 29-year-old Satoru Fujinuma is a struggling manga artist whose work suffers from his inability express himself. Despite his detached exterior, Satoru consistently acts the hero as a result of “Revivals” – experiences where he’s thrown one to five minutes into the past in order to prevent a disaster from occurring. One day, Satoru’s Revival throws him 18 years into the past to prevent the abduction and murder of a classmate. But as we know, the past isn’t so easy to change…

  2. Marvel’s Deadpool Movie Absolutely Lives Up To Hype

    deadpool-movie-1

    This Valentine’s Day revolved around a certain mercenary who stole my heart one advertisement at a time. Due to some truly genius marketing techniques and a cast completely dedicated to the source material, Marvel’s Deadpool has finally made it on the big screen in an accurate and wonderfully obnoxious way – which is really all we ever wanted.

  3. Ronald Weasley: Divorcé and Tinder Failure

    Most times, celebrity answers to the maligned, “where would your character be today” question are terribly boring. But not one Rupert Grint, actor who portrayed Ronald Weasley in the Harry Potter movie franchise. (more…)

  4. All-New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Teaser Trailer Coming with Captain America: Civil War [Exclusive]

    Still recoiling from the shock of having seen a brand-new Star Wars movie? Well, settle in, ’cause there’s a whole new film less than a year away and we’ll get our first real glimpse on May 6th.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story releases on December 16th, 2016 and is the first Star Wars spin-off film, taking place outside the series’ numbered episodes. Directed by Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards, the film tells the story of the Rebels who stole the Death Star plans just prior to Episode IV: A New Hope.

    State of the Empire, our Star Wars podcasting team, has heard from a reliable industry source that the trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters attached to Captain America: Civil War. Easy guess says fans will see it online two days prior for May the Fourth. The even bigger deal? This teaser is not the teaser shown to fans at 2015’s Star Wars Celebration. (more…)

    reg4

    Every year, Regular Show takes part in the great Halloween tradition of spooky anthology episodes. Theirs is called “Terror Tales in the Park” and in this year’s installment the gang got done up in some eclectic nerdy costumes. Left to right we’ve got Benson as Sherlock Holmes, Pops as Tom Baker’s iteration of Doctor Who, Rigby as M. Bison from Street Fighter, Mordecai as Bruce Lee’s character… Lee from Enter the Dragon, Skips is John Rambo, High Five Ghost is Willow Ufgood, and Muscle Man is Snake Plisskin.

    Let’s back that up… FIVES IS WILLOW UFGOOD. (more…)

  6. Congratulations, The Martian Movie, You Did It!

    the-martian-movie-posterFor the first time in recorded history, a movie is better than the book.

    The Martian is a New York Times Best Seller by author Andy Weir, chronicling the journey of Mark Watney, a NASA astronaut stranded on Mars. The novel chronicles Watney’s fight to survive on the red planet long enough to be rescued. Since its humble, self-published beginnings in 2011, The Martian has erupted into pop culture consciousness and none other than sci-fi film master Ridley Scott is at the helm of the just-released film adaptation.

    Earlier this year I reviewed the well-loved book here on Nerdy Show, and I was surprised and even outright mad at how much I didn’t like it. But, like any self-respecting masochist, I gave The Martian a second go and was pleased to find that the film was everything the book should had been. (more…)

  7. Sailor Moon Crystal Dark Moon Arc: Room for Improvement

    smc-darkmoon-blehWe meet again, moonies! When I ceased my reviews, you may have thought I gave up on Sailor Moon Crystal as soon as the Dark Moon arc hit, but rest assured – I persevered!

    Sadly, despite a promising start to the season, Crystal’s second arc turned out to be a big sack o’ disappointment. Sometimes I wonder why Toei even bothered reviving one of the most beloved and recognized anime to only do it such a disservice.

    To quote Rei: Bleh.

  9. The Bill Nye Film Needs YOU: For Science!

    Do I really need to tell you how much of a Nye-ite…Nyeian…Nye-head… Whatever. Do I really need to reiterate how much I love Bill Nye?

    No, I don’t. We’ve been over this. It’s a lot.

    And I know many of you are with me. Bill Nye taught us that scientists are way cool and over the course of 100 episodes of his groundbreaking TV series, gifted us hours of fantastic science-y goodness. He’s the reason a lot of us nerd folk (like myself) became scientists, engineers, and doctors.

    Well now it’s time for us to give back to the man himself. Structure Films & Bill Nye have teamed up to create a documentary about Nye and his mission to bring science literacy to the masses. And they need our help to make it happen.

    Consider the following:
