Review: Pixels

I just looked it up, and the last Adam Sandler comedy I truly liked was released a month after I graduated from high school (Big Daddy).  While he has delivered a couple of surprisingly solid dramatic performances since then (Punch Drunk Love, Reign Over Me), Sandler has never been able to recapture


We Watched 50 Shades of Grey So You Don’t Have To (Spoilers)

Claire and I hold the belief that if you want to mock something, you must have read/watched/played it first. It’s why she’s read all the Twilight books and why I (attempted) to watch the movie. With this in mind, we poured some bourbon on Friday night and watched the 50 Shades of


Review: Ant-Man (Spoiler-Free)

Ant-Man is possibly Marvel’s biggest gamble to date.  Guardians of the Galaxy had that honor last year, and went on to become one of the most beloved movies in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).  Even though it contained a group of characters the mainstream audience was not the most familiar with, it


TV Marketing Has Been Spoiling Shows Lately (Spoiler-Free)

NOTE: This post is free of any spoilers for tv shows mentioned. TV marketing has become beyond sloppy.  Three times in as many weeks, either a commercial or tv show’s facebook account has downright spoiled the plot of it’s own show for me.  Just like in modern movie trailers, so much of


Review: Last Man On Earth (Spoilers)

I’ve been meaning to review Last Man On Earth for a while now.  It’s a good thing I did not though, as every episode that airs, my opinion changes of it.  It is a very flawed show that finds funny moments here and there. To start off with, the name of the


The Funniest Cartoon You’ve Never Heard Of

In July of 2013, I wrote a review of FOX ADHD (Animation Domination High-Def).  A year and half later, this block of cartoons is nothing short of a complete failure.  It’s switched networks from FOX to FXX, and is still practically never advertised (Hulu runs ads that it is still on FOX actually).


Review: The Jack and Triumph Show

Triumph The Insult Comic Dog is by far my favorite character from The Conan O’Brien Show.  Whether he’s covering the premiere of Attack Of The Clones or going to a  Bon Jovi concert, his brand of raw insult comedy has always cracked me up.  In 2012, Triumph teamed up with 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer


Where Have All The Sidekicks Gone?

To the tune of Where Have All The Cowboys Gone? Where is my Willow? Where are her witchy skills? Where is my Dr. Watson? Where have all the sidekicks gone? When Claire found out I had never watched Gilmore Girls, she was horrified. And when it started streaming on Netflix, I knew it


Once Upon A Time…

If you haven’t seen Once Upon a Time yet, why are you reading about it?! Spoilers ahead, obviously. It’s no secret that we love TV here at Pure Geekery. Good bad and everything in between, we’re TV fanatics. Right now, the Husband, the Geekling and I are loving Once Upon A Time.
