Nerd Culture

Every day, the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Every Wednesday and Saturday (mid week/end of week) we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

The Michael Bay’s Transformer series has offered nothing but an unnecessary amount violence, racism, sex, and copious amount of explosions. Hoot and holler all we want, the fact remains, the Bayformers movies make money. Lots of it. So they’re gonna keep making them, sadly.

Doesn’t mean we can’t continue to have a little fun at the director and the franchises expense.

If you thought Bay’s Transformers have done enough to ruin film-making, they’re just getting started. The Autobots and the Deceptions have taken their mass destruction into other movies where they don’t below. Watch as giant robots ruin scenes from Inception to Forrest Gump to Jerry Maguire and more.  (more…)

Chad & Angie from ScreenTeamShow – a YouTube channel dedicated to geeky vlogs and songs –  have parodied many of pop culture’s musical hits. Today, however, they have outdone themselves.

The hottest song and most persistent ear worm on the radio waves is, without question, Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk“. I mean be honestly, how much of your brains energy has been devoted to putting “Uptown Funk” on a constant loop over the last few months? Just when you thought you couldn’t be tortured by it anymore, the duo from ScreenTeamShow do what they do best and have applied the toe-tapping  jam to Marvel’s latest Blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Ultron’s got the Uptown Funk and his evil plan is to give it to you.  (more…)

Fanboys and fangirls have been clamoring for a Black Widow solo movie for ages. For whatever reason, Marvel does not have any immediate plans in giving everyone’s favorite butt-kicking red head her own starring vehicle.  Leave it to SNL to deliver what Marvel will not.

They made a hilarious parody trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me and it follows the international assassin as she takes on an internship at Fashion Weekly magazine and starts a complicated romantic relationship with the new man in her life, Ultron. (more…)

The absolute best thing about the new Star Wars trailer was to feel again the monstrous love and connection everyone has with Star Wars. That emotional connectivity is more than palpable – it’s transcendent.

It would be a shame if someone went and ruined all of that now wouldn’t it? Youtube user murdockmotion is a terrible human being in the most amusing of ways. This evil genius went full retard and recut the trailer adding everyone’s not so favorite Gungan Jar Jar Binks to it. Titled Star Wars: The Binks Awakens. Yep, it’s as ridiculous as it sounds.

NickJoker

He looks like a drugged punk rocker. He’s not how I envision the character. He’s not Heath Ledger.

That’s what a whole lot of people have been saying about Jared Leto’s reveal as a tattooed, “grilled” Joker. It was a photo that has launched 1000 memes. Man,  the ire that has arisen in this nation we call Nerds has brought out the funniest and very worst of our culture.

While negative reactions are slowing to a crawl, there is ONE reactionary video to rule them all.

Before there was Jared Leto, there was Heath Ledger. Before Ledger, there was Jack Nicholson. In 1989 he danced with the devil under the pale moonlight in Tim Burton’s Batman. For near two decades he was remembered as the definitive onscreen Joker. It’s only befitting to see what the legend himself thinks of Leto’s Joker.

*Note: Just so no one feels duped, the following reactionary video is an edited clip from Nicholson’s starring vehicle About Schmidt. So, yes, it’s fake (so is the above image, which is clearly Photoshopped). Doesn’t change how perfect the reaction is. (more…)
