Nerd Dad and Captain Underpants

Guest Review by Blerd Words TRA-LA-LAAAA Frankly, I’d seen the Captain Underpants book on the shelf for years walking through the aisles at Target or Barnes and Nobles; but I ignored it.

GSB Film Review: DOPE (2015)

Dope

  DOPE‬ is a film that Black Nerds have been waiting for since… ever! The idea of Urkel representing the complexity of being a nerd and black is a true misrepresentation of the brothers and sisters of geekdom. Especially if you add the element of being in a rough neighborhood.   The story launches into that …

4-Cosmic-Afros

  You would think a romantic comedy that deals with the pressures of fame, family, alcoholism and unpaid prostitutes would be too much to fit into a film and actually work. But writer / director Chris Rock packs it all together nicely in his new film – TOP FIVE. Andre Allen is an international star …

Fox.  But his ghosts were a little bit more fun to be around.  That’s why I picked this Scream-A-Day for a Sunday Afternoon horror romp. After Frank Bannister has an accident that killed his wife, he can see ghosts. …

Funky Q' Review: THE BRASS TEAPOT (2012)

  A broke young white couple find a brass teapot that gives them money every time they hurt themselves.  Is there room for trouble in this scenario?  Totally. Juno Temple and Michael Angarano play a happily married couple in love.  But things would be better if they weren’t struggling, or an empty fridgerator.  While figuring out what their …

GSB Film Review: THIS IS THE END

(This is my short review because I think many of you have seen it by now.) Seth Rogen fans will love this latest film written by him and Evan Goldberg.  Baruchel, Franco, Robinson, Hill and McBride all play themselves (or how we imagine they might be like). As the title simply states, This IS the …

Trailer Jive: MONSTER UNIVERSITY

  As I said on my Podcast, “Who didn’t like Monster’s Inc.? Because I want to talk to that person!”  Obviously there have been enough people who DID like the Pixar Film, and that’s why there had to be a sequel.  I mean prequel.  A pre-sequel.  Just check out the trailer for MONSTER’S UNIVERSITY: Billy …
