For the Love of Spock

Adam Nimoy’s loving tribute to his father was thankfully on Netflix since I don’t think this was distributed through any theaters in my area. The documentary covers the life and career of Leonard Nimoy with a big portion dedicated to … Continue reading

Uncle Nick is an acquired taste and my new tradition

Another movie which may or may not have blown through theaters last year but I knew about it courtesy of Posehn’s now gone podcast Nerd Poker. For some, their tradition is Diehard or Gremlins, this one is more my pace. Uncle Nick is about a … Continue reading
