Profile: Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Nerd Bastards.com, Luke Gallagher - the love child of Michael Chikilis and Mr. Clean - can be found in Boston, Massachusetts, where he hopes to find continued inspiration and resonance in life through diversified, ambiguous, ambitions. He also wishes to have intimate relations with Christina Hendricks (a man can dream). He has been a professional wrestler, student of Jiu Jitsu, attempted body builder, aspiring actor and hot wings competitor. While genetically programmed to live life as a jock, he couldn't (mentally) be more opposite. His impressive action figure/collectible, comic book and DVD/Bluray collections, along with his love for cupcakes stimulate his nerd riddled thirst.

The Wait Is Over – The Trailer for ‘Ant-Man’ Is HERE!

- 01-06-15Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

Ant-Man1

Earlier this week Marvel teased a literally tiny version teaser, which teased the long awaited full trailer for Ant-Man. No cheap gimmicks tonight. The full trailer, which premiered during the pilot episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter, is available now. It is, well, it’s not nearly as exciting as Marvel’s other cinematic entries. But maybe that’s just me, watch the trailer below and judge for yourself.   (more…)

In the latter part of 2014, it was announced that everyone’s favorite jive talking, and certifiably insane “Merc with the Mouth”, aka Deadpool, would be getting is very own live-action movie. Slated for release in 2016 the production is moving forward with the comedic action extravaganza, and casting is now taking shape.

We know Ryan Reynolds will star as the red suited sword-smith who has a penchant for eating chimichangas, but who else will be rounding out the cast?  (more…)

What Is This a Trailer for Ants? Tiny Sized ‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Released!

- 01-02-15Comics, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher
 Antman

Marvel have released the long awaited trailer for Ant-Man, which is nice, but those cheeky bastards have pulled a fast one on us. They released the trailer alright… they just made it incredibly tiny, or rather ant-sized! You can watch the trailer below, but unless you have access to some Pym Particles, you’re not going to be able to make out diddly squat.  (more…)

TOY REVIEW: 1/6th Scale Snake Plissken From Sideshow Collectibles

- 12-30-14Cool Stuff, Featured, reviews Posted by Luke Gallagher

Screen Shot 2014-12-29 at 11.55.39 PM

He’s been a soldier, gone overboard, fought a Thing, had a stint as Elvis, was a big trouble in little China, took a trip through a Stargate, has been Goldie Hawn’s BAE before BAE was (whatever the hell BAE is) cool, and was one half of Tango and Cash. It’s a miracle, yeah, that’s one too, the amount of memorable roles Kurt Russell has had in his long and storied career. When you think about Kurt Russell, however, there is only one character for which he will truly be famous.

Nothing gnaws on the heel of 80’s action nostalgia quite like Bob -Yes, his first name was Bob- Snake Plissken; the fictional character from the films Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. Neither good or bad, he’s just an asshole who doesn’t give a f**k about your war… or your president.

And now he’s a 1/6h scale collectible figure from Sideshow Collectibles. Who, bless their breeches, were kind enough to send us a sample for review. We’re playing with Snake, and we’re going in.  (more…)
