Monster’s University: Proving That Prequels Are Never a Good Idea

When it comes to prequels, the only one I can think of off the top of my head that is excellent (let alone good at all) is…Muppet Babies! Maybe it’s the fact that I was three years old when it started airing in 1984, but I remember that show being absolutely brilliant.


Digital Cable/DVR Killed the TV Cliffhanger

As a TV geek, one of life’s greatest joys (and frustrations) is getting immersed in an episode of a TV show, losing track of time, then at a pivotal, suspenseful moment, the words “TO BE CONTINUED…” pop up on screen. You want to scream at your TV to keep going, you need


Spoiler-Free Review: Man of Steel

Greetings everyone! My name is Ryan, and I work with Nicole. After seeing a brief, spoiler-free movie review of Man of Steel (which I will post below) on Facebook, Nicole has asked me to review movies for Pure Geekery. I wrote the review that Nicole liked so much in less than 1


Doctor WHO?

Since I’m on a break between school and my internship, I took some time to watch some more Amazon Original Pilots. I love tv, and I especially love original shows- bring on the awesome! Dark Minions- Created by Kevin Sussman and John Ross Bowie (better known as Stuart and Barry Kripke from


Movie Review: Iron Man 3

I have a long-standing love affair with midnight openings. The anticipation, crazy costumes, and standing in line with fans just as avid as I am has always been almost as fun as the movie itself. The last few midnight showings I have been to, however, have lacked the excitement I have come


Jurassic Park: Just as Awesome as You Remember

When the opportunity to see Jurassic Park in 3D IMAX presents itself you do not say “no.” I loved the movie as a kid, but since I was around seven when it came out, I never got to see it in the theatre. Which is why I ended up at the Indiana
