Star Wars Celebration 2017: A Toy Story

As many of you nerds out there already know, Star Wars Celebration was held last weekend in Orlando, Florida to epic fanfare.  While the biggest stories to come out of the event were the first teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and the return of Hayden Christianson to a Star Wars convention for the first time in years, some other news flew a little more under the radar. Bluefin, a leading collectibles dealer, presented a ton of cool releases at their booth from a... Read More

F.T.Life – Jump 2

Nothing makes sense. It’s all a garbled mess. The flash of violet is happy and alive, the underlying grey is sorrowful. In their locked conflict, they swirl, and both emotions are tainted with their counterparts. Their conflict wounds them both, but still they entwine. The light grows too intense. She squints up in confusion, blinded by the white that is left behind. <Previous / Next> Stay caught up on each and every new chapter of F.T.Life by subscribing to the nerdslant e-mail... Read More

Science March Must-Haves for Effective Resistance

The following is only representative of the opinions expressed by the jerk who wrote it. nerdslant.com may or may not feel the same way. Probably so, but they’re sure as Hell not going to tell you. There’s nothing nerdier than science: It influences our fiction, which in turn influences our science. It’s a wonderfully symbiotic relationship. This weekend, on Saturday April 22nd, people are coming together all over the world to let others know that science is a thing to be embraced and... Read More

Doctor Who “Pilot” Review: Moments in Time

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from the Series 10 premiere of Doctor Who. Let’s start this off by clearing the air with an admission: I was left feeling really underwhelmed by the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas special. It’s not that “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” was a bad episode by any means, although it did feel a bit late hopping on the whole “comic book” train. Nor do I think anyone expected it to measure up against “The Husbands of River Song”—it just... Read More

What the First Teaser Trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi Tells Us

After well over a year of waiting (and one expanded universe holdover movie), we finally have our first look at Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi! As a fan, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the all the feels that were felt upon first viewing. The nostalgia of seeing Mark Hamill reprise his roll of Luke Skywalker, this time with actual dialogue, tears that welling up as the camera zoomed in on Leia (Carrie Fisher), and excitement at seeing the new characters that I grew to love in...

Fantastic Beasts 2: Dumbledore and More!

As nerdslant previously reported, the lovely producers who brought us Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have planned not one, not two, not three, but four more additions to the series!  Needless to say, the first film was wonderful, with Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne)  accidentally unleashing fantastical, magical Hell upon New York and helping to catch notorious dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) all in one go. While the plotline and backstories were entirely new... Read More

Beauty and the Beast: A Comparative Study

I think we can all agree on one thing: 1991’s Beauty and the Beast is the best Disney film. Is it my favorite? No—that award goes to The Great Mouse Detective—however, it’s close. We’re given a strong female protagonist, a story of unrequited love, an arguably perfect villain, snappy song and dance numbers, and gorgeous animation. Put it all together and you have the first animated film nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award. The movie is almost perfect, and what few... Read More

F.T.Life – Jump 1

Systems are in… questionable condition. Sensors are on the fritz. Sophia, the only reliable pilot, is out of commission. The unlikely crew, it seems, is drifting aimlessly in a nebula… at least they hadn’t sheered the old vessel in half. <Previous / Next> Stay caught up on each and every new chapter of F.T.Life by subscribing to the nerdslant e-mail newsletter and click here for the complete chapter library. ...
