The Mega Man series has been running at full steam since it first launched in 1987. To this day, the classic story is still yet to reach its climax. The Mega Man legacy now spans over fifty games on 25 different platforms, multiple TV series and there is even talk of a movie in the works. For all the ups and downs it has faced over the decades, it has retained a hardcore fan base that laps up everything Capcom releases in the franchise. (more…)
It’s no small secret that work has begun on Alien; Covenant, Ridley Scott‘s follow-up prequel sequel to Prometheus and the Alien universe. Many are looking at Covenant with a sense of reserved anticipation; Prometheus left a lot of people disappointed, but Scott’s last film, The Martian, showed that so far as his sci-fi chops go, he’s still got it. So keeping all that in mind there’s this piece, a new official photo from the set of Katherine Waterson in character as the female lead, Daniels. Obviously, not much has yet been revealed about her, or anything regarding Covenant, but if you take a look at the photo, Scott is definitely invoking Alien heroines of the past in this one. (more…)

It’s a common assumption among nerds that nerds are just a little more intellectually evolved than other types of people. This is to say nothing disparaging of jocks or fashionistas or cowboys, nor to insinuate that these titles can’t overlap, but when your hobbies all include diving into science fiction, which typically examines philosophy and society by creating parables involving theoretical physics and futuristic technology, it’s hard for nerds to not occasionally feel intellectually superior. This hauteur should immediately dissipate upon the reading of any internet Nerd-Bro comments. You are probably already familiar with the Dude-Bro and the Bernie-Bro. Similar to these close relations, Nerd-Bros are overwhelmingly, though not necessarily, white men, who find it incredibly hard to acknowledge the simple facts that white men, as a group of people, are disproportionately represented in the media and inequitably positioned in society. Even if you’re not ready to accept these basic truths of life in the modern-day United States of America, the following is a list of comments that you should just stop making to help you fake it until you get it, and stop making nerds look bad in the meantime.
In 1986, John Carpenter‘s cult classic masterpiece Big Trouble in Little China was released. While it may not have been a commercial success at the time, Big Trouble‘s mix of ancient Chinese folklore, bizarre storyline, and outrageous fantasy set in San Francisco’s Chinatown won the hearts of audiences upon its home video release. Almost a year ago, it was announced that 20th Century Fox had plans for a remake of the film in the works with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the lead role. Not much has been mentioned about it since then, but while promoting his new movie Central Intelligence, Johnson gave enthusiastic reassurance that the film is indeed moving forward. Check out what he had to say below!
