12 Days of Star Wars

Nerds!! There are only 11 days left till our eyes behold the next installment in the Star Wars saga. (10 if you plan on going on Thursday night!) This Star Wars is going to have a decidedly different flavor than the 7 that have preceded it. There will be no scrawl at the beginning ofContinue reading “12 Days of Star Wars”

Dear Carrie Fisher,

I’m sorry that we live in the kind of world where appearance is what we are judged on above all other merit. To some degree everyone is judged in this manner, but no one is judged quite as harshly as women over a “certain” age. A threshold that seems to creep¬†younger and younger each year.Continue reading “Dear Carrie Fisher,”

Leia, It’s Cold Outside

If God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers was this nerd’s answer to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (and if you missed it…CLICK HERE) then Leia, It’s Cold Outside would be my answer to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. I wonder what could possibly be coming tomorrow to a YouTube near you!Continue reading “Leia, It’s Cold Outside”

Star Wars Re-Watch (Ep V + VI)

Long have I considered Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back to be my favorite Star Wars movie. But this time around, I have to be ¬†honest…Return of the Jedi really pulled out in front. That’s not to say that I don’t consider TESB to be the best of the Star Wars films, becauseContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Ep V + VI)”

Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode IV)

Obviously the Force is strongest with the original trilogy. No one in their right mind would try to argue otherwise. So here we go… Episode IV: -I have associated the 20th Century Fox fanfare with Star Wars for as long as I can remember. I was always disappointed when I heard it and Star WarsContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode IV)”

Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode III)

Out of all the prequel films, this truly is the gem. I’m not saying there aren’t glaring mistakes…the love scenes still induce gagging. And the way Anakin flips sides so casually…yes, it could have been done better. But that doesn’t take away from the overall strength of the film and the beautiful and tragic storyContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode III)”

Star Wars Rewatch (Episode I)

I’m not on a mission to convince you that the prequels are worth watching. I think that argument is ridiculous. We all have our feelings and opinions on the matter. I personally like them. They are deeply entrenched in nostalgia from my high school and early college years and yes…there are bad patches, but whenContinue reading “Star Wars Rewatch (Episode I)”

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

This week I’m reading the first book in The Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin J. Anderson, Jedi Search. Don’t forget (as if you could) none of these are official canon anymore. So the events in these books are mere Legends. Simply good stories that may or may not have happened. I like to think ofContinue reading “NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition”

Sci-Fi Debate Club

If you’ve seen this week’s episode of my web series, then you know about my Sci-Fi Debate Club. If you missed it, take a look… We didn’t plan it. We didn’t mean for it to happen. But when two of more nerds are gathered together, nerdy…geeky…dorky debates are bound to ensue! And yes… they canContinue reading “Sci-Fi Debate Club”

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

There are only 7 months to go till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be hitting theaters and changing our world as we know it. Which mean I only have 7 months for my Star Wars Book Club Challenge. Tall order, but I am determined to get through as many of them asContinue reading “NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition”
