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.
I can remember a day when no one knew what the hell The Matrix was, but GODDAMN did we all really want to! There were cryptic ads on the radio in 1999 that ended with Morpheus’ line, “Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.” The television ads didn’t give too much away either, besides some short but sweet kung fu clips. So, there I was, a sixteen year old movie nerd, dying to know what kung fu, leather jackets, and Ted “Theodore” Logan all had to offer.
Roxi Nobari makes her triumphant return to The Nerd Cave as Oscar season is in full swing! The Nerds debate whether The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction were straight up c***-blocked by Forrest Gump for Best Picture in 1994.

With the recent announcement of the fourth upcoming entry, Jurassic World which comes out in 2015, it seems to be most timely to cover this excellent trilogy’s box set.This set came out in 2011 in two editions: a blu ray box set and a limited edition with a T-Rex mini statue. I had to settle for the first. Like most movie nerds my age, I feel that Jurassic Park is a staple of american cinema and one of my favorites growing up and still is to this day. When this trilogy was released, I got so excited that I made sure to get the day off from work and I spent the day watching all three back to back to back. So now we ask, does the blu ray remastering make that much of a difference compared to with its DVD counterpart?
