Oscar season continues and The Nerds welcome special guests David McGuire and Roxi Nobari to break down one of the greatest films ever made: Casablanca.
Hey there dear readers, Kevin Sutorius here. I’m back with another new series, “Lego to the Movies” where I compare various Lego sets with their movie counterpart. For my first entry, I am covering the brand new Back to the Future Time Machine set, that was just released on July 23rd. What makes this set so special is that a Lego fan designed this and Lego made into a sellable set through their project called Cuusoo. The idea behind Cuusoo (lego.cuusoo.com) is that you submit a design, and if 10,000 people vote for it, the Lego company goes through the legal steps to try to make the set a reality. Additionally, another special feature of this set is for every BTTF set sold, a portion of the revenue goes to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. The set is sold globally starting August 1st through lego.com or participating Lego retail stores.
I was a child of the nineties. Though I was born in the early eighties, I really started making badass memories at about age seven. By that time, I was more aware of what was going on around me and had developed a full-blown obsession with movies. Many of my best childhood memories are tied to a movie or at the very least a timeframe related to a movie’s theatrical release. I’ve been in a place lately where I’ve been purchasing and revisiting these films to see what I may have missed when I was a wee one. So here we go, ladies and gents… the first in a series for your reading enjoyment!
The phenomena of the Creature Feature was around before it even had a name. Listen to how it started, how it has evolved and hear The Nerds discuss notable releases as well as their favorites.
