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…

Child in a Mask 

  By G.P. Avants   Emulation. Being a copycat. These are things we have all done. Who wants to stand out when your goal is to fit in? I know personally growing up shy and lacking confidence, I often acted the part so I would not make a fool of myself. Can anyone else relate?…

Your Source for the Force

From the God Among Geeks staff: Gary, Rudy, and John Talk about a mash up. Today is National Day of Prayer and it happens to fall on May 4th.  I was going to say only Neekdom knows about May the Fourth be with you, but many in pop-culture are aware of it.  So, this is…

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.

Rogue One: Must We Fear the Man from Mustafar?

Rogue One: Forceful Words? 

By G.P. Avants I think it is about the right time to give some thoughts and inspirations from Rogue One. There are so many really great points, plot twists, and analogies to draw upon. Rogue One kept true to the original plot for the most part, however it also broke tradition and gave a us…

A Powerful Ally; The Living Force (Part IV)

    “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…
