Space Boy 2: Robin Williams and Why It’s Good To Talk

by The_Dark_Mikeon 18/08/2016
I didn’t think I would be able to write this. In fact, this is the first time in around 5 weeks I’ve actually managed to sit down in front of a word processing document. It’s the first time I’ve been able to stand the presence, more accurately, of a blank word processing document, with that […]

Are Merchandise Stalls at Conventions a Con?

by Chrison 09/04/2016
Recently, I was chatting to a few friends about which conventions we had been to over the past few years and which we were looking forward to.  As is usual the conversation then moved on to the stalls at cons. We all unanimously agreed that they can be a massive rip off.  One example cited […]

Talent v. A Pretty Face

by Deepdarkredon 26/03/2016
If Batman and Superman can use the v to mean both ”versus” and ”and”, I am going to run with it too. Now, perhaps you’ve heard this before, if not, it might shock you to the core and send you into a frenzied attempt to find answers, but…sometimes…being pretty trumps acting ability when the casting […]

Confession of a Lapsed DC Fanboy

by Chrison 26/03/2016
I have a confession to make. I have not seen any of the “new” Batman or Superman films.  None of them.  The last Batman film I saw was one with Arnie in it, and of course the last Superman film I saw had the exceptionally underrated Christopher Reeve in it. It is not that I […]

Once Upon a Time I met a Geek…

by Becca Harperon 25/03/2016
Something happened to me. Something good. Let me explain, but to do so you need to know a little bit about me. Naturally, I am a self declared geek, it’s why I write for Geek Pride. In real life, by which I am mean actual face to face stuff, I know about ten geeks that […]

Sorry 8 year olds but Deadpool isn’t for Kids and Here’s Why

by Andy Haighon 19/01/2016
So you’ve probably seen somewhere that there’s a petition for the upcoming and rather eagerly awaited adult oriented Deadpool to have a kid friendly edit so young fans can watch it. A campaign that apparently now has an 8 year old poster boy.  The idea being that the character has young fans who will miss […]

Put Down The Paintbrush Hollywood: Diversity Matters

by TinkerTonkson 21/11/2015
Earlier this week, the forthcoming Gods of Egypt movie released it’s character posters featuring a highly controversial cast. The film, as you may imagine, is set in Egypt and focuses on two warring Egyptian Gods, yet neither of them, as per the casting choice, is even the slightest bit remotely reminiscent of Egyptian. While I […]

The Best Depictions of the Big Bad Wolf in Pop Culture

by Becca Harperon 26/10/2015
He’ll huff and he’ll puff and he’ll eat your granny because he’s the Big Bad Wolf. Widely recognised throughout many cultures, as a villain and predator, the wolf appears in many a fairy tale, fable and folk lore. I’m pretty sure the majority of us grew up with the Three Little Pigs & Red Riding […]
