  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s review of SmackDown, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we another WWE Draft, because Vince McMahon never learns. Maybe this time will be different, but I doubt it. Okay, let’s jump into the madness before I get cold feet/a clue.

Match #1: Seth Rollins def. Roman Reigns (Disqualification) The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Universal Champion Seth Rollins (representing Raw) and Roman Reigns (representing SmackDown) collided to kick off Friday Night SmackDown with the winner earning the first overall pick in the WWE Draft for the brand he was representing. Being so familiar with each other’s arsenals, the two felt each other out in the early goings until tempers began to flare, at which point the two Superstars just flat out started throwing haymakers. In the critical moments, The Architect seemingly had The Big Dog bested when he

WWE Raw – April 22nd 2019: Results & Review

  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s Monday Night Raw review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have more confusion from the WWE Draft/Super-Star Shake-Up/if they give it another name I’ll be pissed off. Let’s see if the build for the Money In The Bank Pay Per View gets enough time to sell itself on Raw.

Match #1: Aj Styles def. United States Champion Samoa Joe and Rey Mysterio to advance to Raw’s main event The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

It was only a matter of time until Aj Styles found himself in the mix for the Universal Title once he jumped ship to Raw, but the speed at which The Phenomenal One has maneuvered into contention for Team Red’s top title is impressive even by his standards: Thanks to a Triple Threat victory over Samoa Joe and Rey Mysterio,

The B-Side – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Welcome to The B-Side, a new podcast from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies starring established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems.

The films discussed include End Of Days, The 6th Day and Collateral Damage. Plenty more is explored, including Barbra Streisand’s cloned dogs (for real), that embarrassing final line in The World Is Not Enough, and those unforgettable puns from Batman & Robin.

Widely regarded as a superb actor, O’Connor was noted for often paring down – or fully eliminating – his lines in a scene in order to emphasize the physical aspects of his role – a skill that earned him the admiration of many who directed him, especially Terry Gilliam. In Gilliam’s Time Bandits,

‘Penny Dreadful #7′ Review

  • Nerdly
Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more faithful adaptation of a property from one medium to another. Apart from the fact Penny Dreadful works incredibly well in comic book form anyway, having always been a very visual show, these issues could be happily used as the storyboards for the TV show. It obviously helps that one of the creative guiding lights of the sow, Chris King, is the writer and ‘show runner’ for this title. He does a superb job and, as a huge fan of the show, I couldn’t be more impressed with how this book has been planned and published.

Last issue was ridiculously good, as the imminent End of Days provided a backdrop for a whole lot of story developments. The quick version is,

A Future of ‘Flatliners’: 5 Bad ’90s Movies That Hollywood Should Remake for Millennials

A Future of ‘Flatliners’: 5 Bad ’90s Movies That Hollywood Should Remake for Millennials
This Friday will see the release of a horror film called “Flatliners,” a movie title that should be instantly familiar to anyone who spent the ’90s trawling the shelves of their local video store in search of something — anything — to watch that weekend. Perhaps best remembered as the crusty VHS that was always sandwiched between “The Fisher King” and “Fried Green Tomatoes,” the original “Flatliners” was an asinine but atmospheric psychological horror thing that starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and Billy Baldwin as foolhardy med students who start experimenting with life after death. Nothing goes wrong and they all live happily ever after.

Now, perhaps motivated by the fact that the mere act of making a movie in 2017 feels like an experiment with life after death, Hollywood is about to unleash a remake starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev,

‘Penny Dreadful #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

  • Nerdly
Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics

Two months after the last issue, the one that finished the first story arc and directly led into this new one, we’ve had time to catch our breath a little. Usually these days we lament the lack of content in some comics, with twenty odd pages you can read in five minutes. Penny Dreadful almost had the exact opposite problem, cramming in perhaps several issues worth of story into just four. It all added to the sense of fun though, events happening at breakneck speed. If the new story arc is just half as entertaining as the last we are in for a treat.

The last issue left us with several huge bombshells. Lucifer basically won, and has been reborn in London. Sir Malcolm, in the process of trying to defeat him, has apparently been killed (I

Jennifer Lawrence Blames Irma and Harvey Hurricanes on Trump Voters

Jennifer Lawrence Blames Irma and Harvey Hurricanes on Trump Voters
Get your gas cans and pitchforks ready, another Hollywood actress has said something that is causing controversy, and at least half of America isn't going to like it. Though whether or not it will get her new movie Mother! boycotted is a whole other question. While promoting the upcoming fall release, a new thriller from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky, Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence decided to get quasi-political and say something she'll probably regret by the end of the day if she doesn't already. She full-on blamed Trump voters for back-to-back hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Perhaps not the best thing to do in this social climate.

The statement in itself is ridiculous. Voting for any President does not make the waters rage and the ocean swell, and winds start to whip at unfathomable speeds. That's pure witchcraft. And it's a little shameful considering the mass destruction that has happened all across Houston and other parts of Texas,

The Best Movies About the End of the World, From ‘Melancholia’ to ‘Dr. Strangelove’

The Best Movies About the End of the World, From ‘Melancholia’ to ‘Dr. Strangelove’
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Apropos of absolutely nothing (and definitely not in response to a certain world leader taking disastrous steps towards dooming the environment of the only inhabitable planet we have), what is the best film about the end of the world?

Erin Whitney (@Cinemabite), ScreenCrush

It’s a hard tie between “Melancholia” and “Take Shelter.” One is a devastating meditation on depression, isolation and death, and the other is a dramatic masterpiece that evokes the dread and anxiety of a looming end. They’re very different films (and coincidentally opened within months of each other), but both end on final shots that left me breathless.

Entertainment or Propaganda? A Brief and Critical Look at 'Christian Films'

Christian movies: Starring Nicolas Cage, the widely panned 2014 apocalyptic thriller 'Left Behind' was a box office bomb – unlike (relatively) recent popular 'faith movies' such as 'Heaven Is for Real,' 'Son of God' and 'War Room.' A thought on the New Christian American Cinema: Tired of the blatant propaganda found in 'mainstream' Christian movies Two films that might be called “Christian movies” opened last week, and I decided that I wouldn't watch them, write about them, or review them – at least directly. I'm not even going to mention their titles here because I don't promote propaganda films, and that's what this recent advent of Christian movies has become: propaganda. After all, since nearly all American cinema is Christian cinema, the New Christian American Cinema is in fact pure propaganda – not cinema. Worse yet, it bores me. So, here's the thing about what we've come to call

“I’m old, not obsolete” – Where did the 80’s Action Heroes go?

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Matt Rodgers

Growing up in the UK’s equivalent of The Shire meant that access to the escapism of video rentals was something as distant as The Misty Mountains. The arrival of a man who looked like Stanley Uris from Stephen King’s It, driving a van that was filled to the rafters with VHS, and which glowed like the Pulp Fiction briefcase when opened, introduced me to a roll-call of the 80s Action Heroes. Monosyllabic men, who quipped their way through bullets and bodies. The first plastic case to cross my sweaty palms featured a muscular fellow, holding a gun, against a colourful heatmap backdrop. It was Predator, and that was a long time ago.

About where things began to change for the real expendables is hard to pinpoint. Why did these one-time box-office giants; Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van-Damme, and to a lesser degree Lundgren, suddenly find their powers diminishing?
