Best geek movies throughout history.
The WHO part of SuperWhoLock is of course the longest running of the three, even if we really only count the first or second half of it. This is a show that transcends fandom as it is one of the most popular shows of all time. Doctor Who started in 1963 ran for 26 seasons and then was rebooted in 2005. The show is still running, in fact BBC just casted it's next Doctor and his companion. There is an extensive Doctor Who universe with lots of spin-offs including The Sarah Jane Adventures, Torchwood and tons of books, comics, audio adventures and fan shows. Doctor Who is undoubtedly considered a cultural phenomenon so it's really no wonder that it got sucked into the fanbases that also frequented shows like Supernatural and Sherlock.
SuperWhoLock…a horrifying Tumblr memory originated in 2011. We were possibly the most annoying online community in history and this series was born and bred out of gen Z’ers trying to claim it's creation. The oldest of the Gen Z’ers was 14 when the fandom originated so no you created nothing, this online horror belongs to Millenials. Also if you had really created it you wouldn’t want to claim it, it was a terrible time of hijacking posts that had nothing to do with us and the wildest of fan fictions. Its existence was a flash in a pan and it came crashing down as quickly as it rose to dominance. With the long hiatuses between seasons of Sherlock and Doctor Who and the decline in quality of Sherlock and Supernatural, paired with the fact that the main fanbase simply grew up the SuperWhoLock fandom ran out of steam. Though jokes of a resurgence emerged with the rumors of Sherlock season 5 and David Tennent returning as the Doctor for another anniversary special. It is a fandom that never needs to see the light of day again, and for most of us it is simply an embarrassing memory. But we are going to explore why these shows had such a chokehold on the internet, why they seemed to pair together so well and why we all simply stopped caring. So we are starting with Supernatural…the basis of Superwholock, the emotional demon fighting show that ran for way too long. I love the show, I find deep emotional connection to it and it quite literally saved my life. I've been to a convention and met the cast members, I’ve spent money on merch and I had a dean's necklace that I wore until it fell apart but the show went on for far too long. I stand by seasons 1-4 without hesitation, 5-7 were still good and I really won’t take criticisms on those either, 8-10 were questionable but at that point the fandom fell victim to the sunken cost fallacy and it was too late to stop watching 11-15 simply showed our dedication to the boys as there was next to nothing redeemable in those plot lines.
Review: John Wick Chapter- 4
"John Wick: Chapter 4" follows the eponymous assassin John Wick, who has gone to war with the High Table and caused the deaths of hundreds of people. As a result, his friends and acquaintances are now paying the price of his insurrection, and the High Table hires the ruthless Marquis to hunt him down. The film adds to the franchise's mythology by introducing new rules to the High Table's command, new sections of the secret world of assassins, and new unique characters. The story focuses on John Wick and his allies and friends, such as Winston and Caine, with the latter being a blind assassin with a similar backstory to Wick who is forced to hunt him down. The film has impeccable pacing, never drags, and manages to develop even the new supporting cast. The movie's three acts revolve around breathtaking set pieces, each with its own enemies, weapons, and sets, and returning cinematographer Dan Laustsen continues to utilize neon blues and reds. The film contemplates how far John Wick is willing to go for revenge and how many people close to him he's willing to endanger, ultimately questioning whether it was all worth it.Subramanian
Recapping the MCU
Phase two had a lot more important information than Phase one did so hopefully those broad strokes were enough. I know this is a longer video but the MCU really exploded in phase 3. We added a lot of new characters and furthered a lot of team storylines so let's dive right in.Alexandrea CallaghanPublished about 23 hours ago in Geeks
Recapping the MCU
Hello! Last time we did very broad strokes for phase 1 and we are back to do phase 2 which had the same amount of movies as phase 1 before we get into an absurd amount of movies with phase 3.
Recapping the MCU
One of the biggest obstacles the MCU faces right now is gaining and retaining audience members. The universe is so vast and interconnected that unless you’ve seen every single project it feels like you're missing something. And the unfortunate reality is that you probably are. But if you don’t care about the details, inside jokes, comic book references and every thread of interrelation then you really just need the broad strokes so here we go. Whether you are a tired, burnt out fan or a new audience member I’m hoping these short guides will help you catch up on all of the important information so you can enjoy the current state of the MCU.
Antebellum (2020) Movie Review
The film "Antebellum" attempts to deliver a mind-bending narrative along the lines of a typical M. Night Shyamalan movie, but ends up leaving viewers confused and disoriented. The film is based on a big twist that is partially revealed at the 40-minute mark, followed by a series of third-act revelations. The movie tries to comment on the racial unrest of our current times, but the message at its heart is muddled.
Honest Thief (2020) Movie Review
Liam Neeson is back in action in "Honest Thief," portraying a man with a unique set of abilities that include safecracking and bomb-making. This movie is a simple, no-frills, action-packed adventure that has become a hallmark of Neeson's career in his later years. While these films can be thrilling and gripping, they can also be flimsy and weak. "Honest Thief" falls somewhere in between, providing an average performance with limited opportunities for the supporting cast to showcase their abilities beyond car chases and superficial characterizations. Nonetheless, Neeson's solid and reliable performance at the center, along with a few intriguing details, make the film somewhat satisfying.
Tenet (2020) Movie Review
In the world of cinema, few directors have a distinct style as Christopher Nolan. His films are a culmination of artistry, technical prowess, and storytelling that leave viewers with a lasting impression. The same can be said for his latest film, Tenet, which is no exception to the rule. However, with a film as complex and multi-layered as Tenet, it’s hard to determine if it will stand the test of time. Despite being a cinematic experience of epic proportions, the complexity of the film can make it difficult to fully comprehend.
Greenland (2020) Movie Review
The disaster movie genre is no stranger to Gerard Butler, who has previously starred in the cartoonish and ludicrous “Geostorm.” However, his latest epic “Greenland” takes a slightly more grounded approach, surprising audiences with a dose of realism amidst the chaos. While the film still has its moments of dopiness, it manages to exceed expectations and provide an enjoyable watch.
The Invisible Man (2020) Movie Review
Leigh Whannell’s "The Invisible Man" is a science-fiction horror film that explores the repercussions of emotional violence and the lasting trauma it leaves. Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) is the central character who bears the brunt of the abuse, though the abuser himself is unseen. Whannell's innovative film amplifies the pain and psychological terror experienced by Cecilia, allowing the viewer to feel the visceral scars that she carries with her. The film does an exceptional job of updating the classic Universal Movie Monster, while also addressing timeless and contemporary anxieties.
Unhinged (2020) Movie Review
The movie "Unhinged" takes place in an unnamed state where license plates read "America's Heartland." This suggests that the events of the film could happen anywhere, even in seemingly safe and secure parts of the country. The opening titles show a montage of traffic jams, car crashes, riots, and random violence, accompanied by talk radio reports of job losses, general despair, and woefully underfunded and understaffed police forces. This sets the stage for the mayhem that follows and portrays a world where people must protect themselves.
