Matthew Mcconaughey Reacts to The Force Awakens Teaser

This was submitted to me by +Oodi Games. It's a perfect mashup of Interstellar, showing Matthew Mcconaughey from Interstellar reacting to watching The Force Awakens teaser. I know I can relate!

http://geekslife.com/matthew-mcconaughey-reacts-to-star-wars-the-force-awakens-teaser/
This fantastic video was submitted to me by a member of our wonderful Geeks Life fan community. It’s a mashup of footage from Interstellar with the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser, but the result is something I’m sure is 100% accurate and which we can all relate to. 0000TOTAL SHARES 0

Star Wars, we're home.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, teaser trailer #2! Oh man, all the feels.

http://geekslife.com/star-wars-the-force-awakens-teaser-trailer-2/
The week isn’t even over yet and already I’m blown away by just how many great trailers we’ve seen in such a short time. Today we get a two-minute second teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and in it we finally get a good look at two of the franchise favorite classic characters, Han Solo and ...

Two New Avengers: Age of Ultron Clips

In today's edition of what I may have to start calling Geeks Life Marvel Watch, Marvel has released not one but two new Avengers: Age of Ultron clips.

http://geekslife.com/avengers-age-of-ultron-reveals-two-new-clips/
Marvel is at it again today, with not one but two new promotional clips from Avengers: Age of Ultron to watch. In these clips, we see how Black Widow is able to calm the Hulk, and then we see the whole team turning on Tony Stark after he defends his intentions in creating Ultron. As always, spoiler warnings ahead!   ... Read More

Avengers Age of Ultron Reveals: 95 Seconds of Iron-Man vs. Ultron

There's definitely some battling going on here, but the part I find interesting is Ultron's personality. Thankfully, he has one! I'm a sucker for a good villain.

http://geekslife.com/avengers-age-of-ultron-reveals-95-seconds-of-iron-man-vs-ultron/
Today brings another Avengers: Age of Ultron clip, and in it there’s a lot of personality on display. Specifically Ultron’s personality. As a writer, I’m a sucker for a good villain. It’s a great relief to know that Ultron isn’t going to be an emotionless automaton, but rather has a sense of humor. A dark sense of humour that doesn’t bode ... Read More

I really liked it, but Spader's voice threw me off. I wanted it to sound a bit more mechanical. Right now, it sounds like a VO, and I just picture Red Reddington. It felt weird.

Attention Canadian Avengers Fans

I'm almost feeling kind of superheroed out with all the Marvel and DC stuff I've covered today, but I found out over the weekend that #SubwayCanada  is doing a PR promo deal with Avengers: Age of Ultron. They have a series of six augmented reality cards you can collect at Subway stores that, when viewed through an app on your phone, will show you character-oriented promo videos for the movie. It's pretty cool stuff.

DC Superhero Fight Club

Just in case you were starting to think Marvel was the only superhero game in town today, The CW has released a Flash/Arrow promo featuring ... well, EVERYBODY. It's Superhero fight club time in a literal cage match.

http://geekslife.com/dc-cage-match-the-flash-the-arrow-vs-everybody/
I’m not even sure where to start with this. Marvel is not the only company showing off awesome stuff today. The CW has released a promo video for the final episodes of Arrow and The Flash, and it’s a literal cage match with all the heroes and all the villains fighting it out to blow off steam. More of this, ... Read More

Star Wars Battlefront Reveal Trailer

In its own way, this is just as jaw-dropping as the trailer for The Force Awakens. My poor brain may not survive this level of excitement for the end of the year!

http://geekslife.com/star-wars-battlefront-reveal-trailer/
It turns out that movie trailers aren’t the only ones that can completely blow my mind. Star Wars has another trailer, but this isn’t for an upcoming film; this is for the upcoming latest entry in the Battlefront video game series. You would be forgiven for assuming it’s a movie though. This says it’s game engine footage, not gameplay footage, ... Read More

Grand Theft Auto V for PC Launches—With Some Issues

Okay, so the road is a little bumpy, but it's finally here, and it looks breathtaking! Here's a quick look at GTA 5 before I've even had a chance to really sit down and play.

http://geekslife.com/grand-theft-auto-v-for-pc-launches-with-issues/
After a lengthy wait, PC players can now tear up the streets of Los Santos in Rockstar Games’ new port of Grand Theft Auto V—but beware! Driver issues with the new port of the game have been causing many users to experience game- and even computer-crashing errors. The good news is that driver developers are quickly releasing updates and beta ... Read More

Netflix to Provide Audio Descriptions for the Visually Impaired

Netflix has long had a problem with accessibility issues, but it's never been as apparent as it is now that they have an original series featuring a blind protagonist. The good news? Change is on the way.

http://geekslife.com/netflix-to-provide-audio-descriptions-for-the-visually-impaired/
Netflix has always had a problem with accessibility; blind consumers have had little support from the company, as they offer no way for the visually impaired to enjoy the shows and movies on the service. That weak spot has never been more obvious than now, shortly after the release of the company’s collaboration with Marvel, Marvel’s Daredevil. The show is centered ... Read More

Back in January, Microsoft released its Outlook app for iOS (and Android).  While it says Outlook, it's not actually directly related to the app that you're used to for business email.  T...

Terminator: Genisys Trailer 2

This trailer actually looks pretty good, and clears up a lot of questions about the story. As a direct result, extreme spoiler warning!

http://geekslife.com/terminator-genisys-trailer-2-looks-awesome/
The second trailer for Terminator: Genisys is out, and it looks really really good. I was interested before this, though maybe a bit worried. Now I’m convinced that even if the story doesn’t hold up, we are at least in for a fun ride along the way. I should warn you right now though, do NOT watch this trailer if you’re ... Read More

Marvel's Ant-Man First Trailer

I know next to nothing about Ant-Man, but this trailer makes me curious enough to get a bit excited for it. How about you?

http://geekslife.com/marvels-ant-man-first-trailer/
  Yup, MORE Marvel! The Cinematic Universe just keeps on going and going. Today we get the first trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man, and it is a fun watch. I know almost nothing about Ant-Man as a character; right now I think it’s safe to say that everything I do know, I learned from watching this very trailer. I was in ... Read More

I'm not done with it. Yeah, I could be biased as I grew up with comics and still love them. I'm more of a non-superhero comic reader these days though.

It's going to wear thin and it'll go away for sure. Just wait it out.

Cali and John set out to build a Disneyland (er, sorry Cali, DisneyWORLD) for geeks, and they have succeeded! In the scant few days I was there, I found references built into the place from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, and a TON of incredible modern technology. You're greeted by Platform 9 3/4, then immediately brought into a Star Trek TOS-era transporter room. Then you leave the 1960s behind when you encounter a massive 4K display near the Hall of Fame patron display. Wander a little ways down either hallway past the kitchen and you'll discover what became of Jabba the Hutt's favorite decoration; Han Solo hangs on the GeekHouse wall. You will never find a more amazing house of fun and geekery.

Excellent food and service, despite it being a relatively busy Wednesday night with only one server. I had the smoky cheddar bacon burger, and it's easily one of the best burgers in the area. Would certainly go back again.
