Reboot Analysis: Netflix’s “Death Note” (Spoilers)

Reboot Analysis: Netflix’s “Death Note” (Spoilers)

Let me preface this by saying I was one of those who were extremely disappointed that they did not cast any Asians as main characters. So going in, I was skeptical to say the least. I understand that American reboots of Asian films are not obligated to cast Asians. But it would’ve been nice if at least one of the main characters were. Of course that didn’t happen, so that’s all I’m going to say about that… for now…

Classic Video Game Review… Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast [2002]

Classic Video Game Review… Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast [2002]

What makes a video game great? Opinions will differ on this. Some might think graphics are the most important. Others might value an interesting storyline or variety of maps. Still others might regard function over form, role-play games over first person shooters. Arguably, it’s a combination of all of these things.

Every so often, the major gaming companies upgrade their systems and with that, video quality gets upgraded as well. Back when, let’s say, Playstation 1 came out in 1994, no one could have imagined how clear the graphics would someday become. If you compare the difference in video quality between …

Interview with Cosplay Wrestler Sera Cimmino!

Interview with Cosplay Wrestler Sera Cimmino!

One of the best genre mashups ever is Cosplay + Wrestling. It’s also quite a logical convergence considering society’s obsession with the superhuman and how wrestlers are pretty much live-action versions of comic book characters. Just recently, WWE star Alexa Bliss appeared wearing a Harley Quinn-inspired outfit at her Backlash performance, which was nice. But there are wrestlers out there who take very seriously their wrestling – and their cosplaying.

One such wrestler/cosplayer is Sera Cimmino, and we’ve been lucky enough to get an exclusive interview with her!

NS – Hi Sera, thanks so much for speaking with NerdSociety today. So …

Streaming Review: Residue (2015)

Streaming Review: Residue (2015)

Set in a dystopic London, Residue is a three episode mini-series about government cover-ups and supernatural phenomenon which you can catch streaming right now on Netflix. Natalia Tena (the shape-shifter from Harry Potter and also the wildling from Game of Thrones) stars alongside Iwan Rheon, whom you might recognize as the bastard Ramsay Bolton, also of Game of Thrones.

I was initially drawn to Residue after noticing the two actors from GOT and was intrigued to see them play characters who, in this story, are dating and in a serious, non-violent relationship. Ramsay Bolton was not my favorite character …

Cosplay Experience with Kayla!

NS – Kayla, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with NerdSociety! So let’s start at the beginning… What inspired you to first start cosplaying?

Kayla –  It was mostly following a lot of amazing cosplayers on Instagram that inspired me to first start. So when I went to my first con, I thought “Yeah I definitely can’t go without some kind of cosplay.” I did a quick, cheap getup of Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead and felt so cool and confident with everyone wanting pictures and telling me how awesome I looked, ever since then I’ve been …

Hello Kitty Girl Power Lg Hello Kitty Teams up with DC Comics

Sanrio, DC Entertainment and Warner Brothers entered into a licensing agreement recently to produce a line of Hello Kitty products depicting the cartoon feline dressed up as different DC superhero characters. The line will feature the usual Hello Kitty fare: stationery, clothing and accessories, but will also include food items, stuff like brushes and shampoo, and publishing which possibly means the next installment in the Dark Knight franchise (just kidding).  Viz Media has a new Hello Kitty graphic novel coming out this fall so it should only be a matter of time before the Bat Kitty hits the shelves.

Attention Batman fans!

If you’re lucky enough to be in So Cal, Warner Brothers Studio is offering an exclusive Batman exhibit tour.  The 2 hour and 15 minute tour will showcase props, costumes and even vehicles from the Batman movies.  The tour is limited but WB never said when it would end.  The admission is pricey at $54 a pop.  It’s worth going if you’ve never been on a studio tour before but for me, I can skip it.
