  1. Get Your Nerd Groove On With These Excellent Geeky Jams

    Geek out!

    I adore music. All kinds of music, from Tchaikovsky to Bad Religion and from Kate Miller-Heidke to Tech N9ne. What I also love is when people get super clever, and super nerdy, with their music (be it an original or a parody). So, here are just a few of my favorite nerdy songs from my music library.

  6. Why Captain Marvel Was The Right Choice For Marvel’s First Female-Led Film

    There is not a doubt in my mind that a Black Widow standalone film would have been incredible, and I would have loved it. I’ve enjoyed watching the way her character has developed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and in my opinion she is one of the best characters to grace the Avengers line-up so far—so I was disappointed and outraged along with half of Tumblr when Marvel didn’t include her in their ten-year plan.

  8. Review: You Should Probably Pick Getting Probed By Aliens Over Seeing Extraterrestrial

    Extraterrestrial starts with an impressive prologue which is at once shocking, scary, and darkly humorous, suggesting the possibility that this could be an original (or at least refreshing) take on the alien genre. Unfortunately, the film’s process proves sporadic at best; and by the end, I was almost angry with writers The Vicious Brothers and director Colin Minihan for wasting my time.

  9. The Mary Sue Interview: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Director Ana Lily Amirpour & Star Sheila Vand

    Talking Iranian lady vampire flicks is always the best.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film stars Sheila Vand as a chador-wearing vampire preying on the men of Bad City in a mash-up of western and vampire film, which is also surprisingly funny and romantic. Vand and Amirpour were in New York this week for the release of the film, and talked about their mysterious character, dangerous love, and the benefits of working with a cat on set.

    A cult classic in the making.

    If the title A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night sounds like the set-up for a joke, you’d be right. The new Iranian-language, American-produced, western-inspired vampire movie is one of the weirdest and funniest movies of this season - which also happens to have a surprisingly compelling love story. The movie is one of the most interesting movies of the year, which features a star0making performance by Sheila Vand and a stunning feature film debut by writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour.
