Let the Kawaii Metalocalypse Begin – Babymetal’s Getting Animated

Back in 2010, as the legend goes, the Japanese fox god Kitsune brought together three young idols through divine messages, and the world of heavy metal music hasn’t been the same since. At least, that’s how Kei “Kobametal” Kobayashi, executive producer of the J-pop idol/heavy metal fusion band Babymetal describes it. Since the debut of the band’s self-titled album in 2014, Su-metal (Suzuka Nakamoto), Yuimetal (Yui Mizuno), and Moametal (Moa Kikuchi) have been... Read More

The Bye Bye Man Trailer Conjures Classic Urban Legend Horror Motifs

What is it about urban legends that always make for effective horror film plots? Those grotesquely memorable creatures whose mere physical appearance conjures a shiver and sense of dread in us (and somewhere down the line often become super cool McFarlane actions figures). Last week horror fans were given a trailer for the newest inheritor of this long-standing tradition: The Bye Bye Man. Slated for release January 13th, The Bye Bye Man follow four college kids who move into a vacant... Read More

Hybrid-Feature and New Pokemon Games for the Nintendo NX Confirmed

Rumors and reports from “close sources” regarding Nintendo’s impending new console, mysteriously dubbed the NX, have been floating around for months now. That new Zelda and Mario games would be part of the first six-months after release weren’t much of a surprise; we’ve already known for a while that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would probably be released along with the NX. Both series have been staples of the video game giant’s catalogue since... Read More

The Harry Potter Weekend Returns to Pennsylvania

In just one week it’ll be one of the most fantastic months of the year, in my humble opinion: October. Between apple & pumpkin picking, watching the leaves change color, and Halloween (my favorite holiday of the year), what could possibly make it even better? Why, Harry Potter, of course! For one weekend each year since 2010, Chestnut Hill College just outside of Philadelphia has played host to the Harry Potter Weekend, complete with all things from the wizarding world in J.K....

The Best of Disney’s Animal Kingdom After Dark!

For the longest time, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando was considered by many to be a half-day park.  That notion’s very disappointing to me because it makes the theme park sound like a “not worth it” whole-day investment, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Why, you might ask? Well, they’ve finally done something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time: Extended park hours! The new later hours came earlier this past Memorial Day... Read More

Third Time’s a Charm: The Science of the Blair Witch Franchise

Warning: The following review contains spoilers for Blair Witch. What happens when two of the directors from V/H/S/2 run into Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, the original The Blair Witch Project filmmakers, at Sundance? A sequel is born. It’s been fifteen years since Book of Shadows, the last Blair Witch film, won the 2001 Razzie for Worst Remake or Sequel, which might explain that gap in time. Is the better part of two-decades enough to make moviegoers give this horror franchise... Read More

The Man, the Myth, the Legend: An Interview With GNG Lead Actor Roland Keller

 To be honest, I had to part ways with quite a few actors since creating Ghetto Nerd Girl. It was always amicable. Like any production, people need to move on whether because of a new project or places their life’s taking them. Totally understandable, but on the flip side, I can proudly say that Roland Keller has been with us since day one.  I hope he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Rowland’s one of the most animated and energetic actors I’ve ever worked with,... Read More

Criminal Minds is Losing Its Mind

Warning: The following article may contain spoilers from previous seasons of Criminal Minds. The cast of CBS’ Criminal Minds seems to be dropping more quickly than the show’s many, gory victims. The first veteran actor to say goodbye to the bureau this year was Shemar Moore, who played FBI Special Agent Derek Morgan since the series premiered in 2005. Moore’s last episode aired on March 23rd, prior to the end of the eleventh season.  Shemar said he wanted to try new... Read More

Could Ryan Potter Be the DC Extended Universe’s Robin?

Most of you already know that due to his success in the role of Batman, Ben Affleck will be directing and starring in a stand alone movie for the iconic DC Comics character.  Since that announcement, rumors and speculation about villains & allies for the Dark Knight have been making their way around the internet. One such rumor, regarding Joe Manganiello playing Deathstroke in the film, has already been confirmed.  While Deathstroke’s definitely an amazing addition to the DC... Read More

Regular Show’s Final Season Begins September 26th: In Space, No One Can Hear You Ooooooooh!

Over the better part of the last two decades, a lot of cartoon shows have come and gone without getting to tell their full story. Think Clone High, Clerks: The Animated Series, Undergrads, Mission Hill, and Titan Maximum, all of them brilliantly creative and eclectic, but perhaps too much so for their time. Then there are the oddballs who manage to survive the fast-paced, ratings driven media landscape we find ourselves in, and this fall we get to say goodbye to one such gem that beat the... Read More
