The oscar nominations have come, which means it’s crunch time!
Last year, we had an Oscar Challenge that proved impossible to complete. This year, after careful consideration, we have revamped the Oscar Challenge to ensure that it is able to be finished by Oscar Night, and also nerdier than ever! So here we go:
“Only number 5!?” cries every nerd worldwide. Yes, just number 5 but it’s a short list. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot in 2009 was, to be cliched as hell, A REVELATION! It was so good, I saw it five times in the theaters, then bought the Blu-Ray on release day. I can never get enough of it. It is truly a sci-fi masterpiece.
And we’re back! Fresh off of their appearance at BayCon 2013: Triskadekaphobicon, Eric, Bryan and guest Kevin Sutorius delve into the history of science fiction, and key figures/works that pushed the genre forward.
