Some members of our fantastic Nerdonomy team, namely Sarah and Sean, came up with some brilliant ideas of celebrating some great actors and directors by turning their film career into a viewing marathon! To make matters even more heavenly, they found a way to add the actor/director’s name into the name of a month, which dictated when the marathon would happen. Sarah came up with Mel Brooks-uary (January) and Sean came up with Denzel March-ington (March). I recently came up with a marathon idea of my own and as the title spoils, I am going to start a tradition of James NovemBond!
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.
There is a shift happening, people! Can you feel it? We, as the general viewing audience, are seeing our film comedies transition from plain dick and fart jokes, to thought provoking, enlightening, and obscure films. We aren’t seeing people pretend they are zits; they are going into a discussion of why are they are getting zits and how that makes them feel! It’s a shift that is happening before our very eyes and it’s at times appalling! Who can we blame, good friends? Who is asking us to laugh and think!? Thy enemy’s name is Judd Apatow!
