Hellboy II: The Golden Army

This week on a special 2 Nerds in a Basement! Tessa (of Fanimorphs fame) joins me as we watch a movie not done by Marvel or DC but a film done by Dark Horse comics!

Hellboy II features an amazing cast, gorgeous visuals, a villain who were not sure why he is a villain and drunk Ron Pearlman singing Barry Manilow. What more could you possibly ask for?

Constantine 2005


New guest alert!

My sister Justine sits down with me to watch and discuss a movie about one of hers and mines favorite characters Constantine! We discuss some of the changes they made to the character, the fact that Shia Labouef is pretty much a toddler that can drive a cab and how weird it is seeing Rachel Weisz in anything other than the Mummy.

A return to form this week on 2 Nerds in a Basement!

78 – Akira (1988) w. Marina Power

Marina Power is here because Akira (1988) is set in 2019!

We go through this groundbreaking film seeking out the ways in which it accurately predicted our current timeline, stuff that didn’t quite happen, and for the things we would carry over into our own 2019. Sufficed to say: this Japanese cyberpunk psychic-god-boy story got a surprising amount of things right, or at least less dystopian than the world we currently live in.

Blade Trinity 2004
