It is a delicious time for movies and television! Cult favorite Twin Peaks returned to television, debuting on Showtime on May 19th, and earlier this month, Guardians of the Galaxy returned with Vol. 2 to the delight of Marvel fans everywhere. Now you can display your “fansession” by proudly wearing pieces from Allison Hourcade’s new line in her ever-growing Rocklove Jewelry collection.
It’s a strange occurrence to walk through a trendy Brooklyn neighborhood and see people dressed in costume walking in and out of a hotel… in Spring! Last Saturday, the Best Western Gregory Hotel in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, hosted the first annual Brooklyn Geekfest, brought to you by Gotham City Games. The miniature comic-con style festival featured two rooms, one dedicated entirely to gaming, featuring multiple consoles, and ongoing tournaments throughout the day. The other was filled with vendors selling toys, homemade video art, and of course video game accoutrement. As is now tradition with any geek-themed convention, there was a cosplay contest for both adults and children.
Check out our interview with host and the owner of Gotham City Games, Ralph Pugliese, and our image gallery below.
This Saturday in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, Gotham City Games is hosting the Brooklyn Geekfest at the Best Western Gregory Hotel. A small convention chock full of video games (old and new), comics, unique novelty items, raffles, and tournaments, this one day only extravaganza is sure to hold us geeks over until NYCC!
The holiday season is upon us, and if you are looking for that perfect gift for your kids, or your geeky significant other, you need look no further. Put Me In The Story has two spotlight books for your little ones. The first, Star Wars: The Force Inside, has your little Jedi exploring the nature of the force to decide if he/she is destined to become a Jedi Master or a Dark Lord of the Sith. The second, Star Wars Rebels: Battle Plans From Darth Vader gives you access to Darth Vader’s battle plans. Does your child (and by child, I mean you) use them for good or for evil?
A new short film is making its way around the ‘net titled Imagination that’s sure to hit many of you right in the ol’ nostalgia button as it is overflowing with geeky goodness.
Playing more like a music video, Imagination is a very cool mixture of filming techniques including stop-motion and time-lapse set to a cover of the song “Pure Imagination” sung by the great Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
