The Deck of Pain

Ya know we nerds aren’t usually known for our physical fitness but I personally have been working hard to try and keep myself fit and healthy. My friend and sometimes co host of the Nerdgasm Needs podcast (Wild Bill) turned me on to this work out and I thought it would be a good excuse to put some cool graphics together. If you’re looking for a good workout routine then give this a try and let us know what you think.

47 Ronin Official Trailer

Hmmmm….I’m not sure what to say about this movie. I could easily go with a Matrix or Neo joke to start this off, but I’m sure you will hear plenty of those in the coming months leading up to 47 Ronin’s release. So I’ll go with a Bill and Ted joke instead…Ready? Looks like Ted’s about to go on another excellent adventure! I’m sorry but who thought that Keanu Reeves is the perfect embodiment of a samurai warrior and the only one who can save Japan???

Anyways, I have to say that I’m not super impressed with the CGI that is shown in this trailer and this movie honestly reminds me of some mutant spawn project between Quentin Tarantino and M Night Shyamalan. Also, I don’t really know if I’m following the plot line here either. In all seriousness I don’t think I will be running out on Christmas to go check out this movie, but it might warrant a rental. Needless to say I am not overly impressed by this movie but I guess it remains to be seen if Keanu Reeves and 47 Ronin can show me something a little better than this. Don’t get me wrong I actually do like Keanu Reeves as an actor but in the right movie. This doesn’t look it though. However, I could be wrong as that is known to happen from time to time.

Check out the trailer for the new Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure…I mean 47 Ronin and let us know what you think. Is this movie a GO or a NO for you and do you think Mr. Reeves can once again save the world? Let us know your thoughts below or on our Facebook Page.


Attack on Titan Review

This is a review of “Attack on Titan” the anime series, not the manga. I will do my best to be descriptive without spoiling anything for those of you that haven’t seen the series. There has been a lot of hype going around about the anime series Attack on Titan. It has been hailed as one of the greatest anime series of 2013. I do enjoy a good anime and have been trying to find a good series to get into. I wanted to see if Attack on Titan could really live up to all the hype and praise it’s been getting. I am very pleased to say that it not only deserves the praise it has received, but it completely surpassed my expectations.
