Top 10 Movies of 2016

2016's top films feature a diversity of genres, but was the industry better off as a result? Story by Matt Cummings I think it's safe to say that 2016 was one of the worst years in recent memory: shootings, rising tensions abroad, and (another) highly-divisive election was book-ended by high-profile deaths that began their march in January (David Bowie), ripped through the Summer (Prince), and ended with an awful December (George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds). Similarly, we saw a movie industry plagued with more than a dozen high-profile failures and outright disappointments ( Independence Day: Resurgence, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Norm of the North, The Fifth Wave among many, many others). But, a few films did rise to the top, punctuated by stellar performances, incredible action sequences, smart comedy, and beautiful musical moments. As always, our list is generated on factors such as memorability, quality, and a completely selfish desire of whet

#MarvelCollectorCorps Review: April 2016

It's a month of Marvel Movie Ass Whoopin', as Marvel Collector Corps delivers another exceptional sub box. Review by Matt Cummings With Loot Crate long gone and our faith in Geek Fuel going ebbing and flowing from month to month ), we're really enjoying the Funko runs of DC, Smuggler's Bounty, and of course Marvel Collector Corps. This month's CIVIL WAR theme is ready for next May's superhero throwdown, filled with excellent items but a couple that give us slight pause. The Promise Before we begin, let's look at the deal again: promising a value of $50, the box would keep the "fluff" (their words) to a minimum with Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure. Joining at the Founders level would get you an 8" exclusive figure on your one-year anniversary, but you can also subscribe at the Collector level at $25 with $6.95 shipping. With Year One Founders receiving a Captain America statue, it's clea

#GeekFuel Review: April 2016

April's Geek Fuel is an appealing mish-mash of geeky goodness. Review by Matt Cummings March's Geek Fuel box provided us a bit of relief from the stink of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , mostly completing its mission of delivering high-quality goods to our doorstep. Mostly. And while April's haul is filled with a mish-mash of geeky goodness, it's a mish-mash all the same. Before diving in, let's review the details: The cost for a Month to Month is $17.90, $16.90/month for a 3-month subscription, $15.90/month for a 6-month tour and just $13.90/month for a one-year subscription. Shipping $6.00 to the US, Canada, and at least a few other countries. We use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see how this box stands up. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after the unboxing: Winners We love the Rockem/Sockem t-shirt. A lot. But it's way big on us...way big. As a result, it's
