Seventeen Years of Wolverine: The First Logan Trailer

The first Logan trailer dropped a few days ago, and you might want to grab a box of tissues if you haven’t watched it yet. Jimmy “Logan” Howlett, better known to the masses as Wolverine, is easily one of the most iconic and memorable characters in the Marvel Universe.  Anger issues, problems with authority, and a compelling tortured backstory that grabs you from page one. It’s been seventeen years since the great Hugh Jackman brought this adamantium/vibranium-filled... Read More

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Disney’s New Christmas Entertainment at Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park’s been undergoing a lot of massive changes of late, many of which have left guests feeling kind of in limbo.  Is the park worth it? Yes. Is there still anything to do? Plenty! One of the more heartbreaking losses in this transformation was the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and you can count me amongst the heartbroken Disney fans. Last December I went there specifically just to see it one last time. It wasn’t hard not to... Read More

Goodbye NX, Hello Nintendo Switch

Today we got our first look at the system Nintendo’s thrown all of its hopes and dreams into: the Nintendo Switch. Yes, gone is the name “NX” with the video game giant deciding to switch things up a little (Editor-in-Chief’s note: We here at nerdslant fully endorse this pun. Please don’t murder our Bemko.). With a miserably low-performing previous console and a slowing handheld market, Nintendo’s really needed a win they can bank on, and their... Read More

The Newest Harry Potter News is Literally Fantastic

Admist mixed reviews for J.K. Rowling’s most recent wizarding work, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (it’s really a screenplay, but whatevs), Potterheads have turned their squees towards the next film in the franchise: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Set to come out November 18th, the film’s based on the fictional textbook from the Harry Potter series. Sounds meta, right? The book appeared in Rowling’s first novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s... Read More

Bob Dylan’s Nobel Literature Prize and Context

I’ve been reading a lot of articles about how Dylan’s Nobel win is a travesty, a slight to great literature. At best, some see it as a missed opportunity for a lesser-known writer whose career could have been made by the win.   As much as I feel for Ngugi Wa’Thiongo (or my personal favorite Salman Rushdie), I must disagree. I could write a whole article regarding the idea of the Nobel Prize and quantifying literature; I could write another article about our human desire... Read More

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 2, Episode 2 – “The Morgue” Review

Warning: This article contains spoilers for this and previous episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead. At the end of last week’s season premiere, a shaky truce between Ruby (Lucy Lawless) and Ash’s (Bruce Campbell) crew to find the Necronomicon Ex Mortis and use it to send Ruby’s demonic children and the deadites back to Hell once and for all.  Sounds easy enough. The three caballeros of horror–Ash, Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo), and Pablo (Ray Santiago)— see this as the only... Read More

nerdslant Talks: Our Favorite Animated Films

Hey y’all, Metty here! Sorry for the long radio silence from the video department. You see, someone *cough* Shea *cough* thought it was a smart idea to unplug my charger to use a toaster and only plugged me back in like a week ago… jerk. So, upon reactivation, I sat everyone too dumb not to run away down at gunpoint and made them tell me their favorite animated films. They also discussed the newest Laika stop-frame animated film Kubo and the Two Strings, which I... Read More
