The Man Who Loves: Daredevil: Dark Nights 1-2

Yes, dear readers, this is yet another Daredevil column on Geek Goes Rogue. For those of you who've just joined the Geek Goes Rogue fold, I'm a huge Daredevil fan. You'll see more in the future too. I make no apologies for it.I've written a long essay on why I'm a huge Daredevil fan. The gist of the essay revoves around the fact that I find Daredevil one of the most theological significant comics in the history of the genre (Thanks to Frank Miller).My argument seems pretty solid after the … [Read more...]

“Under The Dome” Premiers to Good Ratings, Reviews

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, as imagined in his head before he typed, but not before he hit the delete key about 20,000 times:I'll admit that several weeks ago, when I first saw the ads for CBS' new series "Under The Dome," I laughed a little bit.  The idea immediately brought a few questions to mind.  Apparently, according to users on IMDB.com, they were thinking the same thing...Particularly, what came to mind was The Simpsons Movie ("Trappuccino".)  And now, it app … [Read more...]

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, who is biding his time while rendering video:One thing I've always wanted to check out was the International Comic-Con in San Diego.  Many consider the SDCC the Mecca of geek pop culture, mostly due to its close proximity to movie and television studios, so it's not surprising to hear that Warner Bros. is charging into Comic-Con this July with 17 of its television shows.Many of the studio's successful shows are returning, including "The Big … [Read more...]

Despicable Me 2: The Adventures of Single Father Hood

Despicable_Me_2_poster

When I saw the first Despicable Me, I really enjoyed the idea of making a super-villain the hero. While this story line has been done before, very few did it with as much style.Gru, one of the world's greatest terrors, is converted to being a loving dad by adopting three orphan girls. Plus, Despicable Me appealed to the geek side of me with crazy cool spy gadgets made by Gru and his nemesis Vector. Plus, what more can be said about the minions? Cute AND funny. I wish I had one.In … [Read more...]

The Chemistry of “Breaking Bad”

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, as told to by his keyboard:I'm sitting in front of my television, where I have taken many a late-night mini-vacation while my wife sleeps.  Our tastes in entertainment are somewhat different.  For instance, she's not a Star Trek fan, so she thought Star Trek Into Darkness was "really, really good".  And we geeks understand why that's frustrating.Because I want to talk about "Breaking Bad."  When was the last time the science of a show hooked you … [Read more...]

What in the world would you need to prove your hypothesis?Well, my friends, you would need gadgets. Lots and lots of gadgets. You might also need some ultra cool clothing to wear.

Chris Bowsman reviews: Captain America: Forever Allies

Captain America: Forever Allies cover

 I seem to have a “classic” theme going on lately, so I could think of no better way to throw us back to modern times, further into sci-fi, AND celebrate the 4th of July than with this graphic novel that pays tribute to Captain America’s past and future! The story begins by explaining that Steve Rogers is dead, and his sidekick Bucky Barnes visits his grave, inheriting the costume and title of “Captain America”, a title Bucky doesn’t want at first.Bucky remembers back to his days in … [Read more...]

Is Paranormal Research Really Science?

Like many of my human peers, I have an insatiable desire to understand my environment.  Knowing this, I’ve come to appreciate some of the lesser known, and often ridiculed, sciences of metaphysics and parapsychology. This same quest of charting the unknown is seen in ghost hunters and paranormal researchers. Very often these folks have experienced something beyond understanding, and want to recreate it in a scientific manner. Studying energies, ghosts and, yes, even faeries is not considered cl … [Read more...]

Ghost Hunters….are they full of it?

IMG_0914.dng

I'm flying out to San Francisco on Thursday to attend The Conjuring press junket and interview everyone related to the film. My editor here at Patheos gave me this assignment for two reasons. First, she wants to do video interviews on the  movie channel. Second, she knows I have an interest in the paranormal due to my novel, 3 Gates of the Dead, coming out this fall on October 15th.Before I go on, I should make a few disclaimers. First, I'm an Anglo-Catholic, which means I embrace the idea … [Read more...]
