Senior Writer at GeekVibesNation - I am a 50 something child of the 70’s who admits to being a Star Trek/Star Wars/Comic Book junkie who once dove head first over a cliff (Ok, it was a small hill) to try to rescue his Fantastic Four comic from a watery grave. I am married to a lovely woman who is as crazy as I am and the proud parent of a 18 year old boy with autism. My wife and son are my real heroes.

HBO’s Westworld has been no stranger to plot twists and shifting the status quo since it debuted two seasons ago, but it sounds like the series’ next installment will be outdoing itself for season 3. Westworld showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, teased what fans can expect in the upcoming third season.

Through the original series and the Star Trek motion pictures, there was Leonard Nimoy. Time moves on as it always does and eventually the Star Trek franchise was rebooted by J.J.

Ethan Peck (Grandson of the late great…

On November 18, 1985 – Bill Watterson’s opus Calvin and Hobbes was introduced in syndication to the comic strip world. Throughout it’s 10 year run, which ended on December 31st 1995, it delighted adults and children alike with its humor and its subtle and sometimes not so subtle comments on society at the time.

For those unfamiliar with Watterson’s strip, Calvin and Hobbes follows the humorous antics of Calvin,…

The Luke Skywalker actor then revealed that perhaps relying on his words of wisdom might not be the best idea. “Arnold Schwarzenegger asked me for advice when he was just starting…

So let us look back into Dumbledore’s Pensieve (you know what that is right? If not, time to go and catch up on your Harry Potter) and see…
