Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

May has finally arrived and with the temperature slowly starting to heat up around the country it’s time for the annual onslaught of the big budget box-office summer movies to begin. And starting us off as usual is Marvel Studios. This year is the return of our favorite space trekking heroes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It’s going to be another box-office-breaking smash-hit for Marvel/Disney as they deliver once again a great, fun, action-packed comic book movie.

Binary System Podcast #80 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 2 “The Mouth of the Water”

It’s our 80th episode, woo hoo! Enjoy this…completely regular episode. You thought we’d have a plan? Have you met us?

Anyway, we recap the latest Alice Isn’t Dead episode and wander off into weird tangents like Salt Water Taffy vs. Tangy Taffy vs. Laffy Taffy vs. Pixie Sticks vs. Fun Dip vs. Tang (we have opinions) and the movie version of Stephen King’s 1408 (not great, except for this one scene…)

Then we figure out whether or not the second season of Broadchurch is going to be worth the inevitable heartbreak and..look, we know we said we weren’t going to talk about Iron Fist, but we’ve got thoughts about Iron Fist, because we totally see what they were going for but man did they miss the mark.

Binary System Podcast #79 – WTNV Episode 106 “Filings”

In Night Vale it’s illegal to acknowledge the existence of angels, so they’re out to change that, and you know what that means: PAPERWORK. Also minor riots, dragons, and rifts in the space-time continuum. It IS Night Vale we’re talking about.

After the twins recap the episode they also get into Mystery Science Theater 3000: the Return (and how delightfully creepy Felicia Day can be), the new Beauty and the Beast movie (and how it’s okay if you make a movie that’s only for Disney Fans because that’s a hell of an army to contend with), the new Iron Fist (about which we’ll say very little) and the Hugo Award nominations (about some of which we’ll say nothing at all…)

Binary System Podcast #74 – The Randomness Continues

Without a Night Vale episode to recap this week, the twins set up a careful, organized plan for the recording. Riiiight. That’s about as likely as Megatron writing limericks about how awesome Starscream is. (…actually, fanfic writers, could you please get on that one? Thanks.)

No, they jumped from one random topic to another, covering the hideous early reviews for Iron Fist, Tom Hiddleston’s T-shirt in Kong: Skull Island, David Duchovny’s high heels in Twin Peaks, and the emotional manipulation that was the series finale of The Vampire Diaries, and how we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Review: Logan

Review: Logan

James Mangold’s Logan is the definitive Wolverine movie. Subdued, mature, contemplative and brutal, Logan arguably could be called the best X-Men movie, period. It’s Hugh Jackman’s tenth on screen portrayal of Wolverine, three in his own personal films. This marks the end of an era; we watch Jackman and Patrick Stewart bow out, as their time as X-Men comes to close. What could have been another throw away comic book movie ends up having more in common with a John Wayne western than a mutant laced action flick. This is by far one of the best comic book movies to date and will go down in history as such.

Superhero Sworn in to City Council

Superhero Sworn in to City Council

A recent Washington Post article, written by Cleve Wootson, highlighted the swearing in ceremony of Lan Diep. Diep donned his replica Captain America shield as he took his oath of office as a member of San Jose’s City Council. This true nerd and collector of all the nerdy things stated that “There are few opportunities for a grown, adult lawyer to whip out things that some people would choose to classify as toys. So they’ve languished in my closet, safe from scratches, thieves and those who would mercilessly mock me.” Awe, Lan Diep, we would never mock you. We commend you! Stay Nerdy!
