Racism In the Screen – How Television Can Spark Conversation

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, who, once he takes hold of an issue, runs with it: I’ve been trying to avoid all the talk about racism that has come over our airwaves in the last month, but stuff keeps happening.  I can’t escape it. Now to be fair, the place where the most of the flames are really being fanned is the internet, with all its various, gloriously self-appointed morality judges who often speak according to their… Read more

DC Trinity War Part Two: Is evil an external or internal force?

(Spoilers Ahead, Ye Be Warned….) On Wednesday, Justice League of America # 6 came out as part two of the DC Universe wide story, The Trinity War.

Without a doubt. When we last left The Trinity War, Superman killed a member of the JLA, the two Justice Leagues… Read more

The Conjuring: Horror for Smart People

(Potential Spoilers ahead) As a soon to be published horror novelist, I have a vested interest in the genre. I’ve often said that good horror writing should be like good sexy writing: in the head and the imagination. Too much detail or graphic description kills the mood. We’ve seen a few promising horror films in that vein in recent years. The first Paranormal Activity, The Last Exorcist, and the underrated Woman in Black are some great examples. They were a… Read more

Geek Goes Rogue reviews SHARKNADO!

From Geek Goes Rogue TV Editor Zach Lorton, who has a hankering for swordfish: Last Thursday, July 11th, I celebrated my 10th anniversary with my beautiful wife, Julie.  As that was happening, the rest of the interwebs celebrated the “Sharknado” phenomenon.  I may be late to the punch on this one, but only because there was no way I was going to watch “Sharknado” on my anniversary. I DVR’ed it, though.  Oh yeah. And since there was such a huge… Read more
