May 21, 2013

Did the geek world become a lot brighter over the last few years? Are modern cameras not built to handle this much light? Observe the posters for the upcoming Star Trek …urm, Man of Steel. Ok, ok, I get it. It’s a neat effect and one poster does not a trend make. Wait a minute… Excuse […]

STAR TREK: The Measure of a Fan

May 20, 2013

All this talk about NuTrek got me thinking about old Trek and sci-fi in general – which, to be honest, I’m usually on the brink of doing at any given moment anyway, so…win-win. Sci-fi has always been at its heart, a series of spiffed-up morality tales; an effort to explore and answer life’s BIG QUESTIONS: […]

Evil Dead: Not Your Mother’s Horror Flick…it’s the remake of it

December 30, 2012

Hey Armchair Moguls…where’ve you been?? That’s the content of all the emails we’ve received over the last couple of months and the simple answer is: Raising babies. But now that we’ve kinda got a hold of that, it’s time to move on to something truly important – YES, summertime! Time for all the sudios to […]

Happy International Women’s Day! We at the Armchair offices were planning to celebrate by looking at pictures of international women all day, but after realizing we had misinterpreted a couple of things, we decided instead to post a tribute to some ladies who best represent gender equality in the world of geekdom.
