Geeky Gifts for The Big Bang Theory Fan
If you use the word 'Bazinga!' throughout the day, then you might be a fan of The Big Bang Theory. Many people have spoken out to criticize the show, but we must remember that they were given an unlikable subject and they turned it into something hilariously appreciable. Doctor Sheldon Cooper, a theoretical physicist and the King of Nerds, is the favorite character for most viewers. His character is considered to be one of the key reasons behind the sustained success of the show which is going into its tenth season. Sheldon finds it troubling to keep up with social codes of conduct. He’s also hysterically horrible at understanding sarcasm and humor, although unintentionally, he makes use of these social norms rather often. But even Sheldon would know that these 10 products are must-haves for any fan of The Big Bang Theory.

Best Comic Relief Characters
One of the oldest staples in movies is the comedy relief character. Especially in darker movies, the comic relief character serves to provide levity in times of dire straits and, if used correctly, they can be the highlight of the movie, and usually tend to be fan favorites. There’s a fine line to walk with a comic relief character, and although many of them can be annoying, these are the comic relief characters that we think did the best job of serving the role while being a memorable part of their respective films.
Hottest Super Villains
For every superhero, there is a super villain to counter them. It’s part of the intrinsic formula in almost every comic book. Usually male super villains get the most attention in the comic book world, but today we’re going to take a look at what we consider to be the best, and hottest, female super villains of all time. But we can't just concentrate on their looks. These women are as lethal and powerful as they are hot. If looks could kill, these women would have us stone cold in seconds.
Insane Harley Quinn Cosplay Costumes
Many of the characters in the superhero genre have been around for almost half a century, if not more. This is what gives them that sense of almost being legendary, but one particular character has become the fastest legendary character in recent memory of comic books. Harley Quinn. For many it comes as a massive surprise when you mention that Harley Quinn was only invented in 1993. Although originally only meant to be a henchman of The Joker, Harley Quinn has proved to be a powerful feminist icon in more of her later incarnations, and with any popular character you can bet your bottom dollar that there is a lot of cosplay, and Harley Quinn is no exception. Here are some of our favorite Harley Quinn cosplay costumes from the different incarnations of the character.
Epic Graphic Novels
Around the early 2000s, someone reading an anthology of Hellblazer comics would have been seen as unwilling to make the jump to more adult fare and sink their teeth into the great American novel. In 2008, we had Iron Man and The Dark Knight. Suddenly, people looked at graphic novels a little differently. A lot of comics are for kids, but there have always been comics for adults, dating back to the Golden Age before the Comics Code Authority. Listed below are some of the most epic graphic novels from the Golden Age onward. Think of this as a primer for the world of comics designed to make you pause.
Who Is Wonder Woman?
Her mission is to bring harmony and sexual equality in a world torn by the rule of man. The origin of the most famous super heroine ever, Diana Prince, otherwise known as Wonder Woman, may be unknown to many. As with many comic book characters, there is often evolution and reimagining involved over the years. Wonder Woman now emphasizes an Amazonian ideal, where women are proud, statuesque, and fiercer than men. However, many people, and even some geeks, may not know the true beginnings of the Wonder Woman character. Wonder Woman is often characterized and defined by the various transitions she’s gone through. The Golden Age, which marked her origin, the Silver Age, that showed her evolution and strengths, and finally the Bronze Age, where she was more mysterious and forceful.
Is the 'V for Vendetta' Movie Better than the Comic Book?
V for Vendetta was first a fantastic comic, and then a fantastic movie. Are we here to argue which was better? That's for you to find out, no matter what the creator of the comic Alan Moore might want us to do. There were some significant changes that the movie made from the original source material while trying to remain as faithful to the message of the comic as possible. Most of these changes were done to update the source material and adapt for the time restraints of a major motion picture.
1980s Movie List For Kids
Stripped of their innocence, children of the 1980s turned to movies in droves to escape the world of Cold Wars and nuclear proliferation. In the dark of the theater, popcorn in-hand and a very large sugary, caffeinated drink on the floor between their high-top sneakers, adolescents immersed themselves in movie experiences. Theaters were packed regularly. Movies that pulled the audience into an action-driven kid adventure were just the answer for the country's children. No self-respecting 1980s movie list for kids would leave out Steven Spielberg's ET and its classic sibling, The Goonies. But what really rocked this audience's world were hits like The Last Starfighter, The Karate Kid, and anything starring Fred Savage. He was like a twelve-year-old George Clooney!
Craziest Water Slides
Towering at over 100 feet, the craziest water slides from around the world excite fearless thrill seekers. From Dubai and the Bahamas to the shores of Brazil, these slides are engineering models which have taken years to build. Water slides have made their way into the Guinness Book of World Records, and many remain on the adventurous bucket lists of summer fun enthusiasts.
How the Ghostbusters Franchise Fought for Survival
When the Ghostbusters trailer was released in May 2016, critics and fans alike did not seem to greet the idea of a reboot with much excitement. Many whined about the lack of solid jokes during the nearly three-minute segment, the all-female cast (although I don’t see any validity in that complaint), and the lack of returning stars. The original cast consisted of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Rick Moranis, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson. These actors collaborated on one of the greatest movies of all time, and they followed up with what most can agree to be a respectable sequel. So why did the Ghostbusters franchise have to fight for survival after the 80s? And why the big switch up in 2016?
