ABOVE: Eagerly awaiting the incarnation of the Joker on the big screen? Have any favorite actors you’d like to see don the clown make-up and kill people randomly? Benedict Cumberbatch certainly has enough experience being a crazy person, and the above piece of art shows what he might look like if given the chance. – By Alex Tuis
(Guess Who Friday is a weekly feature here at nerdbastards where we challenge you to guess the latest known or lesser known child star of nerd pop culture from the days of yore (70’s, 80’s, 90’s), who have all grown up. Lets take a gentleman’s bet and see if you can figure out today’s ‘Guess Who’. Warning: we are not responsible for any shocked, appalled or arousing feelings which may incur.)
Who is this chick? She was born in Iran. AND was born in 1972…So when I was 4 I am not ashamed to tell any of you or the police that I was in LOVE with this, then, 12 year old. Super HOT 12 year old. No, it’s not weird. I was 4, and as I aged, she stayed 12 and it stayed okay. So I can still say she was hot at 12 because I’m saying it as a 4 year old in my head…She looks like Lauren Holly a little from Dumb and Dumber now…I GUESS that’s a good thing…. (more…)
Every movie has a conflict point…Just like every rose has its thorn?….Never mind that. I find that even the saddest scenes in a hardcore drama can affect you sometimes worse than real life drama. For example, In “Boys Don’t Cry” (Not on this list), Tina Brandon is raped by her friends when they find out he is a girl. Terrifyingly brutal. Even after you left the the theater it resonated so deeply, years later, the tuning fork vibrations of silently thunderous realism hit home too closely to an uncomfortable level. THESE movies are the moments in SCI -FI /FANTASY films that made you sad. To say that real drama is dramatic just screams of an easy tear jerk. I’m talking when a NerdBastard type film can get you moving, get the eyes all welled up, THAT, my friends, is brilliant work.
Not to say that these films aren’t kinda terrible (Lets face it, alot of them are, and we love them REGARDLESS of poor quality), because, well, they are a little. If an Ewok can make you sad. This is the site for you, and just the list to get you thinking. (more…)
Sci-Fi and Fantasy films…Ahh..A movie that can get away with anything the fuck it pleases if its an original script. Or if not handled as delicately as china…Or a newborn being held onto by the ankle…Someone’s cult comic, film remake, graphic novel, or game of any sort can be destroyed and bring down the integrity of it all as a whole. My list consists of the silly…The bad..And the worst. Most of these picks are originals of sorts, and just because they’re BAD…Doesn’t neseccarily mean I don’t relish them, in that way they take you back to a time when your life was simpler and the special F/X were astounding!
