Today the 85th Academy Awards nominations were announced. Some shockers and some unsurprising choices. Take a look below to see the nominees for the major categories. Is there any one movie or person that/who is on the list that shouldn’t be? Who or what was left out? Let us know in the comments:
San Diego Comic-Con has come and past as usual there are a TON of great exclusive statues and toys that go along with the event. Being a collector and not attending the event is a bit different though as sometimes you go through a hell worse than standing in line…
As you no doubt know from reading posts and listening to the podcasts made from SDCC (if you haven’t then I may disown you… and we were just getting to know each other) the Nerds of Poca-Lypse had a great time at this year’s Con. Well minus one thing… the damn lines. If you wanted to see anything you were waiting n a line. These weren’t any normal line, no sir. These were the kinda of lines were people were sleeping outside the day before and these lines were far too common.
Friday on our way to the San Diego Convention Center we notice a giant ad for The Amazing Spider-Man video game. Pretty cool but nothing we haven’t seen before. Today, that same advertisement was spray painted with Deadpool’s logo over it. This is some pretty cool marketing for the newly announced Deadpool game.
Marvel panel recap!
Today we stood in line for 10 hours to see what Paramount, Warner Bros, and of course Marvel Studios had to offer us this year in movie news. Unfortunately, at the end of the day we missed out on Paramount and Warner Bros due to the massive lines and our refusal to sleep outside the night before just to get a glimpse at footage of Henry Cavill without a shirt.

This week on The Nerdpocalypse podcast the guys head to San Diego to attend Comic Con 2012 and break down their experiences. We talk about nerds who know it all, meeting celebrities, first impressions of some upcoming games, and the costumes and toys we saw.
Moonrise Kingdom is a quintessential Wes Anderson movie. The look and feel of the movie is textbook to his style. Tracking shots and quirky music set the scene for a wonderfully enjoyable film set in 1965. Much like Life Aquatic we are thrown into the imagination of Anderson with his story of two kids who fall in love with each other and go to the end of the island for each other.
Growing up as a young nerd I had many staples in my movie catalog. So many of these staples included Arnold Schwarzenegger kicking ass as a mercenary, kindergarten teacher, or game show contestant. However, there was one that really stood out. In 1990, Total Recall was released and I immediately loved it. From the scene where Arnold is removing the tracking beacon to the woman with three boobs this movie had it all.
What would you do during the most awkward time in your life if you were given unlimited power? This is the ultimate question in Josh Trank’s debut movie, Chronicle. Three high school boys make an incredible discovery in a crater during a party that gives them superhuman abilities. What they do with these powers is heavily influenced by the lives that they led before the incident.
New shot of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has now been released. The open world style is back and the clearly the exciting webslinger action of previous games is back. Could this be the a Spider-Man game that actually had great camera work? Let’s hope so. Either way, I am sure it will be fun.
