Whilst not everyone was a fan of Joker, you can not ignore the new avenues it has opened up for the Superhero genre. Here we have three villains that we believe make strong contenders for DC’s next villain solo outing.
Toys are flying, craft supplies are dwindling, and no matter how many snacks you throw at them they are still hungry! Geekology admins are wonderful, but they can be hard work to keep entertained when the only option is the house or your garden. Here we offer you three simple crafts you can do at home with minimal supplies – they worked on our admin team, so we hope they’ll work for your kids too!
Coronavirus has swept across the globe, creating panic in crowded cities and toilet paper aisles alike. Most events hosting over 500 people have been cancelled, including Broadway shows in New York which have been postponed until 12th April. But what else are we going to be kept waiting for? Here is a comprehensive list of all live events, movies and productions affected by Coronavirus so far.
It all started with Iron Man. No, Iron Man is not Universal Studios, nor is it a monster movie. Yes, I am aware of both of those facts. Nevertheless, it started with Iron Man. Marvel did something that many did not think could be done well. A cinematic universe, a network of independent films that locked together and gave rise to a story that would span an entire decade. Other studios looked upon Marvel and Disney with envy, unable to replicate what they had done. The truth is, the formula was there, they were just too impatient to use it.
Detective Pikachu is an incredible show of how a video game can inspire an enjoyable movie. With a worldwide gross of over $431 million, it is the second highest-grossing video game film adaptation of all time (the first being Warcraft which, ironically, has much lower critic ratings than Detective Pikachu). The CGI does a wonderful job of bringing our favourite fantasy monsters to life, and a sequel was announced months before the actual film’s release. As a lifelong Pokémon fan, I found myself squealing and pointing out every single Pokémon I saw – much to the amusement of my partner, who was thankful that we were to busy to see the film while it was in the cinema. Of course, being a Pokémon fan, my mind started wandering to all the untapped potential of live action Pokémon movies. We’ve seen comic book movies take Hollywood by storm, seeping into other genres and showcasing the evolution of the film industry – now it’s Pokémon’s turn to shine.
I was almost six years old when Pokémon Yellow was released in Europe. It was my first Nintendo Gameboy Colour game, and one of only two games I owned for a couple of years. Later, I played Pokémon Crystal on the Gameboy Advance SP – and I was hooked. No matter what my academic grades said, if I were tested on Pokémon, I’d get 100% and extra credit. Many years later here I am, stroking my new Build-a-Bear Piplup, reliving the same frustration I get every time I imagine what a new Pokémon game could look like: Nintendo doesn’t accept ideas from outsiders. Logically I understand why; they’d get thousands of unsolicited ideas a day, and if they’re already working on an idea that then gets suggested they have to waste some money getting rid of someone who may feel entitled to a slice of the profits. Still, as a die-hard Pokémon fan I can’t help but feel disappointed that I’ll never get to share the ideas I have with the designers that I idolise. So, to get some of those ideas out of my head, I thought I’d share them with you.
