This week, The Nerds put it all on the table and confess their embarrassing “guilty pleasure” films. These are some really bad movies, everyone… but we can’t help but love them.
Once again, it’s time to take a stroll down lover’s lane. Every love has a story. Today’s love is Hook.

The Blind Date:
Ahh first loves. We’ve all had them. They provide the base of the do’s and don’ts for future relationships, what we like and don’t like, and what our next relationship will be. It’s an exciting time. My first love was a young thing by the name of Hook. I remember it like it was yesterday…

I know what you’re thinking and I agree. Batman & Robin is one of the most terrible films to ever disgrace the silver screen, or any screen for that matter.

However, a true Batman fan, comic book fan, or comic book movie fan can actually enjoy it and I will tell you how.
Step 1 – Head West… Adam West That Is
Set aside some time to watch at least two episodes of the 1960s Batman TV show or the 1966 Batman film. I hope you have at least a small soft spot for this iconic program as I do because it was extremely significant in the pop culture of the time and without it, we may have had to wait much longer for the current cavalcade of comic book based content we enjoy today.
