The Conjuring 2 : #FNEmoviemonth (22 of 30)
In real life are these stories real or hoaxes? Or maybe people really believe that these things are happening when they might not be...Either way, I like how these movies just treat them as real - and I really like Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga's performances.

Child's Play : #FNEmoviemonth (21 of 30)
31 years ago my dad took me and my brother to see the original Child's Play. Today I did something almost as nice for my dad by NOT bringing him to this movie that also claims to be called "Child's Play" - there were some things in it I enjoyed, but I honestly might've liked it more had they just had some generic robot toy and NOT Chucky.

Captain Marvel : #FNEmoviemonth (6 of 30)
I went into this movie knowing it was supposed to be good, but not over-excited for it. By the time it was over I was overly-excited for more Brie Larson and more Captain Marvel.

The follow up to Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, Rocky V, Rocky Balboa, and Creed - Creed II is a great follow up to the first one, while also bringing back a major villain from Rocky IV and also Flavor Flav's ex-girlfriend. All jokes aside, I loved it. Year: 2018 Directed by: Steven Caple Jr. Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren

Venom : #FNEmoviemonth (3 of 30)
Tom Hardy is a great actor. Venom is a cool, iconic looking comic book character. Can they come together to make a great movie? No. Can they come together to make a fun movie. Somewhat. Stuff happened. Special Effects fought each other. Aliens not named ALF had one liner jokes. This is Day 3 of movie month - THIS is Venom.

Geek Mentality and Game of Thrones "The Bells"
Holy Hell! What an episode! This makes the battle against the Night King look like...well, the appetizer it really was leading up to this...I don't even want to call it a battle. It was a massacre. So of course I had to talk about it. If you disagree, hit me up twitter at @GeekMentality!

Geek Mentality and Game of Thrones "The Long Night"
What? A new podcast episode? But it's not June yet! I just finished the EPIC Game of Thrones episode "The Long Night" and I had to turn on my phone's recorder and talk about it on my drive home from my friend's house. It's mostly me just ranting and trying to remember all the amazing stuff I just saw - so basically like every other podcast episode I do. Anyway, see you in June and follow me on twitter at @GeekMentality!

Geek Mentality and Elseworlds: Night 1 - "The Flash"
It's night 1 of CW's 2018 Crossover Event - ELSEWORLDS - and Mike decided to turn on the recorder app on his phone and talk about it. Somewhat. He got distracted by some animal running through his yard. He's convince it was either a fox, and coyote, or a mountain lion. Probably a fox. Don't listen unless you're okay being spoiled.
