There Will Be Geek

Cav, Chani and Mike wittering about geek stuff.

Pedanticide: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Pedanticide is a column where we take a widely (which usually also means, ‘inaccurately’) criticized slice of pop culture, and give its most miserly, myopic and frankly munted nitpicks a taste of their own medicine. The goal is to try and ‘clear the air’ a little around the discourse on certain things and maybe even pay the artworks, and artists […]

Avengers: Infinity War Review

Dir. Anthony Russo/Joe Russo Released April 27th, 2018 Ten years. Nineteen films. Some twenty lead characters. Enough money spent, and especially earned, to float a fistful of small countries. Avengers: Infinity War is not your average event movie, but the momentum point for one of the grandest experiments in cinema history. Today, with Marvel films being a regular, to some […]

Episode 29 – What We Did On Our Holidays: Part 2

We’re back once again with our hiatus review. This time, we’re talking about the best in TV and film from while we were away galavanting (in the case of at least one of our number, getting married). We take a look at Stranger Things, Star Trek: Discovery and Game of Thrones (with honourable mentions for The Defenders, and The Tick). […]

Episode 18 – Fan Theories

This week, your Consulting Geek Detectives grab their pipes, stuff on their deerstalkers and stride around purposefully holding their magnifying glasses as we investigate Fan Theories. We look at witches and murderers, hospitals and snowglobes, implanted memories, watchers and secret agents, implausible hoaxes and drowning swimmers in our quest for cultural enlightenment. Plus our Thimble of Win focuses on taciturn […]

Episode 7 – ComicCon Previews

Take three fresh geeks. Marinade them gently in a blend of trailers, stir vigorously, ladle about the face repeatedly, slap several times, pour into a baking tray and shove it into your computer at Gas Mark 7 for 50 minutes…   …the end result being this week’s investigation into the Film and TV delights we can expect to be gracing […]
