Are You Ready for the 80’s, Again?

  I recently finished the novel, Ready Player One. What a ride! I never thought that the 80’s would make a for the plot of a creative and complicated story.  Thanks to Ernest Kline and his ode to everything from the era of my youth ( or “Yoots” as Cousin Vinney would call it). Wade…

Nobodies Make the Best Somebodies 

By G.P. Avants   The movie, The Last Jedi shook up some long standing traditions when it came to Star Wars fan expectations. Even as I am writing this piece, our God Among Geeks writing staff has mixed opinions about many of the story plots and directions the second movie  installment went. Normally, we focus…

Walking Among Neeks 

  by G.P. Avants   Welcome back to land of Neeks. Who are Neeks? You know who they are. These are the people in your life who stand out from the crowd, or quietly blend in behind the scenes. Neeks are creative, curious, calculating, (as in Math), and constructive people who are often labeled as…

Web-elution of Spider-Man #3-The Goldilocks of Spider-Man

By: John D. Pepe I would argue, that from what I have seen so far, both from Civil War and the trailer to Spider-Man: Homecoming, that Tom Holland is the Goldilocks of the three incarnations of Spider-Man. Tobey Maguire #1 (too cold): I like the story in the original and I thought that he was…

Perfect Idiots

By Gary Avants Peter Quill believes he is staring at what he assumes is perfection. The Sovereign leader Ayesha, though, in all her glory can easily slip in a smile meant to reduce a lower species back down to size.  She makes the Guardians of the Galaxy feels like they are five tiny specs of…

Never Tell God the Odds

by R3 Without a doubt, the lovable and funny Empirical Security droid that was modified by Captain Cassian Andor to assist him on his missions for the Rebel Alliance, was a highlight in the new Rogue One film. K-2SO is completely different than the droids that we are used to in the Star Wars universe….

Kubo and the Two Sides

By R3 I recently watched and thoroughly enjoyed the film Kubo and the Two Strings and all it’s visual glory. Like any LAIKA film, it’s a mind explosion of both story and motion-capture art, but keeping with the LAIKA tradition of making you reflect as you walk away from the movie. Kubo and the Two…

Spending Time

  Here we are at the end of 2016. Wow, time has flown by. Speaking of time, here is a poem written by one of the characters from my novel, Chronolocity. Elise shares in our main character Levy’s time travel adventures, in time. These are her quick thoughts on what time means to her. Happy…

Surrender, Stephen

  By G.P. Avants   Dr. Stephen Strange was a man who believed in the here and now. He was a hands on guy who was grounded in the material world. In the good doctor’s perspective for things to exist in real time, they had to be tangible and explainable. When his grasp on the…

    “Don’t underestimate the Force.” – Darth Vader   By G.P. Avants   The force is unseen Yet binds all life; It protects what’s good In the midst of strife. It’s a mind that’s open To hear your voice Wisdom unequalled Who gives free choice. It bears the weight Of galaxies un-numbered, Yet can…
