NerdBastards had the privilege, nay, the pleasure, of getting to toss some questions at Daniel Brodie, creator and writer of Morgan’s Organs. Brodie’s comic book, now in it’s third issue being funded through Kickstarter, is the unique perspective of the organs living in a college student, Morgan. Think Pixar’s Inside Out for grown-ups. Low brow humor of the highest quality, Morgan’s Organs gives voice to larger than life characters that many young men will identify with. Morgan’s brain, Bran, and his penis, Pepe, vie for control of Morgan’s love life while his other organs feel the fallout of their choices. Morgan and his organs sometimes seem at odds with each other, having differing goals and opinions. But no matter the situation, their choices affect each other in hilarious ways. Extremely NSFW (that IS a censored penis head in the logo, after all!) Morgan’s Organs provides laugh-out-loud comedy that will keep you engaged, page after page.
Let’s start this discussion by saying Robert Pattinson is a fine actor who’s done great work, not just Cedric Diggory or Edward Cullen shenanigans. So, let’s throw those out the window.
Next, I’ll be quite frank that I don’t like Robert Pattinson as Batman. But boy, does he deserve a big, heroic role.
Robert Pattinson started his career pigeon-holed into being a moody romantic lead. While I think moody fits his acting well, I understand how romantic lead can be stifling for an actor who wants to take on more serious, dramatic roles.
After great work in movies like Good Time, Robert Pattinson deserves a big budget movie where he can show off the dramatic, more action-packed actor he wants to be (at least if Good Time and Batman are any indication). It’s no surprise that he’s in negotiations with a big director like Matt Reeves (Dawn of The Planet of The Apes, War for Planet of The Apes) to play such an iconic role.
Unfortunately, I just think Batman was the wrong choice.
In the wake of Black Mirror’s season 5 trailer, fans have been buzzing with excitement. Here at NerdBastards, we’re no different. Black Mirror has encouraged a new trend of sci-fi anthology TV, questioning the world in new, bizarre ways.
While waiting for the three new, star-studded episodes, let’s look back on some of the best stories to come out of the anthology series. Every episode pushes the envelope in it’s own way, but some do it better than others or leave more lasting impacts.
With definitely, absolutely no particular order in mind, here are the 5 best Black Mirror episodes (for 5 seasons now, get it?)
(Please laugh at my jokes or you’re in for a long read.)
Even though trailers have become the hottest way to display a new upcoming film, before the internet boomed posters used to take that role. Plastered across movie theater walls, they had to encapsulate the essence of a movie in a single, beautiful, wordless frame. The posters were an artform all on their own.
Movie posters aren’t as drooled over as before, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some damn some beautiful ones. After all, the John Wick 3 poster has completely floored fans.
With such a beautiful image on the tips of our brains and fluttering our hearts, let’s take a look back at other posters that give wonderful eyegasms and other artistic feels to anyone who sees them.
Some of these designs have inspired and impressed for decades; prepare for some serious optical pleasure. (more…)
Last year James Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. With Brightburn in theaters, Suicide Squad 2 next in the pipeline, and rehired by Disney, Gunn spoke with Deadline about the past year and where he finds himself now. How did the firing change him and why does he consider the day he was fired the “best” and “worst” day of his life? Gunn’s story and experience is one that we should all be paying close attention to and learning from. In his own words “People have to be able to learn from mistakes. If we take away the possibility for someone to learn and become a better person, I’m not sure what we are left with.”
Kids and adults have been engrossed with playing all various games on their TV sets in the comfort of their house ever since the invention of the first videogame system. As technology has evolved, these games have been also evolving.
Today, you can find a lot of games that have been turned into video slots and presented on casino sites such as this one. Here are the most popular ones. (more…)
Video games have been popular for decades. In fact, 60% of people in the United States play video games every day. It’s an industry that has adapted with technology over the years to maintain its popularity. But, most people don’t often associate video games with social issues or making a positive difference in the world.
In fact, there is often a lot of negative feedback associated with video games. People who play them frequently can be stereotyped as lazy, nerdy, and reclusive. Video games have also been in the news many times over the years when it comes to how violent some of them can be.
But, video games can absolutely be used for good, and some gaming producers have started to incorporate social issues into their work. One of those prominent social issues is homelessness. The question must be asked, though: can a video game really combat this problem in the country? (more…)
As we’ve finally arrived at the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, to say it’s had mixed reviews would be a bit of an understatement… and whilst I am an avid fan still, a LOT of people have issues, with not only the season in its entirety, but also with this episode, and one character in particular… (more…)
