The Indie Index is here!

Time to get this party started! Wow! This is totally happening. The Indie Index has come to life! That’s pretty special and Jesse at geek-genie.com thought so too because I've been invited to host The Indie Index on this incredible website! Thanks Jesse! Over time The Indie Index will grow and evolve while showcasing the happenings within the independent comic industry. The Indie Index will include interviews with creators and indie publishers, information regarding Kickstarter campaigns run by creators and general bits’n’bobs. I guess what I’m trying to convey is that there’s clearly an affinity for these independently created funny books. I mean, within 24 hours, I was offered a great platform to host such written pieces. The Indie Index is here as an effort to assist in getting the word out to/for those who would have otherwise never come across various indie titles. How many times can I use...

Which actor played the best Spider-Man?

Iron Man and Holland
One thing is for sure: every Spider-Man movie is guaranteed to be filled with action and excitement. Even so, the acting of the masked hero varies. We now have 3 different actors that have donned the Spidey suit on the big screen. They have all put in great effort, but who is the best? Let's weigh the options.   Tom Holland is a new and fresh face for Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He really connects with the younger audience members. He has the funny factor of Spider-Man, but does he pull off the nerd aspect of Peter Parker? He seems like too much of a cool kid. Let's be honest...if he were in our high school classes, he would be the most popular guy in school. He also seems like a flat-out crony of Iron Man. He'll sometimes be dealing with situations on his own, but he'll usually have Iron...

WWE - A Weekly Re-cap

127 RAW 09252017sb 3007 be34529d2c9d18b342a30de90cb4e9d2
This is a very short review on the highlights of last week's amazing week in WWE. RAW The Miz and Roman Reigns have been feuding ever since the night after No Mercy. Roman came out to confront him, during some kind of Miz TV with the MizTourage. The Miz says, '' It's only a rumour''. Referring to the Shield reuniting, Roman replies by saying, '' Don't you say anything about rumours''. At that moment the crowd went wild, as Dean's music hit he stood side by side. Suddenly the other half of the Tag Team Championship, came out as the Shield reunited. Ganging up like they used to, on each side of the ring the Shield took out the MizTourage, and the Miz by planting him with the famous Triple powerbomb. No that is not the only thing that happened on Raw. The Main Event, the match we had all...

The Top 10 Moments From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Thor Ragnarok is less than a month away! How exciting! I'm going to be looking at the top 10 MCU moments ever to hit the big screen...and by the way, no post-credit scenes will be included!

 

10. "The Hand" - Thor the Dark World

ThorHand

This scene was a true shocker and left us with our mouths wide open. It also showed the true brilliance of the character we all love to hate, Loki. After agreeing to work with Thor to face Malekith "The Accursed", he supposedly betrays Thor by slicing his hand off. We are all screaming the word "typical" to Thor's face and calling him gullible for trusting Loki the god of mischief, however what was to come was truly shocking. Loki reveals Thor's hand was just hidden by his trickery and Thor summons Mjolnir just like that.

9. "Dormammu, I've come to bargain!" - Doctor Strange

580fa82cf2574

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The scene we all remember from Benedict Cumberbatch's brilliant performance as Doctor Strange. When Strange's greatest foe makes a fantastic appearance, Stephen uses the powers of the time stone to basically annoy the hell out of Dormammu causing him to spare Earth in order to escape the eternal time loop. Memorable and hilarious.

8."Is that the best you can do?" - Avengers Age of Ultron

avengers age of ultron concept poster 578x299 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A triumphant scene for the MCU, showcasing all the Avengers new and old destroying and dismantling Ultron bots around the Vibranium. It showed the true strength and teamwork of the Avengers ending with a typical statement by Thor..."Is that the best you can do". Ultron responds with hundreds, if not thousands more Ultron bots.

7."The Rainbow bridge" - Thor

thor had to destroy the bifrost or rainbow bridge in order to stop lokis powers from destroying the helpless frost giants

Mixed feelings present for this moment occurring in one of the best MCU movies ever. Many things happen when Thor clashes with his mischievous brother Loki, and is forced to protect Earth by destroying the Bifrost. This causes Odin to wake from his sleep and attempt to save what's rest of Loki. A sad ending with falling into the abyss...but that wasn't the last we saw of him!

6."We're the Guardians of the Galaxy" - Guardians of The Galaxy

1487611402221

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guardians of the Galaxy was an unexpected blockbuster. Who would have thought that an 80's space themed comedic action film would have been so charming? A central theme running through the MCU is the fate of the Infiniti Stones. Starlord and the Guardians risk it all by absorbing the Power Stone and destroy Ronan the accuser saving Xandar from destruction.

5."Bucky?" - Captain America The Winter Soldier

Captain America The Winter Soldier 2014

In my opinion without doubt the greatest action film ever to be made. The second installment of Captain America was titled "The Winter Soldier" which sparked confusion within movie fans but pure excitement for comic book fans. A mysterious assassin to appears to have murdered Director of Shield Nick Fury. His mask is removed on the awesome battle of the highway and is revealed to be Cap's best friend from his WWII days...Bucky! Steve Rodgers is shocked and caught off guard leading to his arrest at the hands of Brock Rumlow AKA Crossbones.

4."I am Iron Man" - Iron Man

maxresdefault 2

The movie that launched the MCU. The origin story of how Tony Stark became Iron Man. This one scene describes billionaire Stark perfectly. Where most superheroes battle to keep their identity a secret, Stark's (in)famous ego means that at a packed press conference he at first denies any involvement with Iron Man, but then stuns the world by declaring straight faced..."I am Iron Man". And thus was born the MCU.

3."I will bathe the star ways with your blood" - Guardians of the Galaxy

ronan ship

The first appearance in an actual movie for the big baddie of the NCU, Thanos!. He shows his true power by frightening the hell out of the feared Ronan. Thanos' look is perfect and is plucked straight from the comic books. After dealing with Ronan like a naughty child, he leaves us with his signature bad boy grin!

2."Avengers Assemble!" - The Avengers

the avengers marvel studios

 

Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye arrive by jet. Thor arrives with his magical hammer Mjolnir. The Hulk leaps his way to action. Finally, Iron man joins the team to face the Chitauri and the Levaiathons. The perfect scene for the Avengers to Aseemble!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1."Underoos" - Captain America Civil War

fd85cd64472974ddd01cd2f024afd56d128aa93ce66dc02ec8e16adefdb0fec5

 

One of my favourite MCU scenes! So much happens! Heroes go toe to toe in mortal battle. Marvel's most iconic character makes his first ever appearance in the MCU...and it doesn't disappoint! Spidey on Team Iron-Man against Cap's Team...iconic!

Arkham3
Batman is a huge character in the Comic book, Movie and action figure industry, he is an iconic figure that is universally recognized.

From crying at the joker's death, celebrating when finally collecting that one last Riddler trophy and screaming at the sight of Mister Freeze following your every move. I am reviewing the brilliant quadrilogy in a trip of nostalgia, hopefully more games will come after Warner Bros read my article!

The Top 10 Episodes of CW's The Flash

maxresdefault 7
With the recent release of the much anticipated season 4 kicking off, Geek Genie takes a look at the best 10 episodes of The Flash . 10. "Flash vs Arrow" S1E8 Flash vs Arrow may not have been the craziest episode ever but the 2nd part of the Crossover was a brilliant episode since it was the beginning of many crossovers to come. Action packed, full of great fighting scenes whilst also giving audiences a glimpse of the great friendship between Oliver Queen and Barry Allen.   9. "Flash of Two Worlds" S2E2     The 2nd episode of my favourite season of The Flash , Jay Garrick acts as a mentor to the Flash teaching him the ways of the speedforce. This episode contains a scene that mirrors the iconic comic book cover from The Flash #123   as well as featuring the return of Harrison Wells...but not as...

A Look Back at "Hell In A Cell"

028 HIAC 10082017jg 0377 5f6cf9b21f8cff686b55eb23aed608e4
 We kick off Geek Genie's new WWE section with a look back at the recent "Hell In A Cell" event! HELL IN A CELL Overall, Smackdown's pay per view was good with a few ups and downs.   The New Day vs The Usos WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship Hell in a Cell Match Usually with Tag matches, I don't watch them, I don't find them exciting. The tend to be over-hyped. But this is one of a handful of tag matches I have enjoyed. It was non-stop action and there were many shocking moments in the match too. My prediction: The New Day retain their titles Result: The Usos won their second Smackdown Tag Championships   AJ Styles vs Baron Corbin vs Tye Dillinger U.S Title       This match had 3 great superstars who I thought all deserved the title, over this month the 3 have been...

Undisputed - PES 2018 kicks FIFA 18 into touch

maxresdefault 12 600x338
The biggest battle in football kicks off as Konami and EA do battle for gaming supremacy.  The eternal battle between Konami and EA over who can best bring to gamers the "beautiful game" brings us the 2018 versions of their respective franchises.                        EA has reigned supreme since 2008 with it's innovation in game modes, simulation game play and a lockdown on most official licenses. But 2016 marked the release of what many considered as the best ever football game. Sadly for EA, it was Konami's PES 2016 .            Pro Evolution Soccer was undisputed king of the football gaming world with a series of breathtaking releases from 2000 up until about 2008, when it's crowned started to slip and was eventually knocked off and stolen by EA and its juggernaut franchise FIFA .

Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy

Tom Cruise
Universal Pictures will finally get their wish with a shared universe for their iconic monsters and it all kicks off this summer.   It's been a long time coming and quite a few false dawns, but Universal Pictures will finally get their wish. This summer will see the launch of their very own "monster-verse" with the release of The Mummy. Briging all the Universal monsters together in a shared universe has often been seen as a mission impossible, so surely if anyone was going to lead a successful charge for Universal it would be Tom Cruise.  Cruise will play Nick Morton and will be a pivotal character in the universe moving forward. The story is set in the present day, a departure from the traditional period setting for most Mummy iterations.                     The Mummy will also introduce audiences to Dr.Jekyll played...

Do you love monsters?

Is there anything better than monsters? I mean not just scary monsters, either. Aliens and Hellraiser are great and all, but I love monsters of all types. I love monsters in Adventure Time as much as I love them in Lord of the Rings. Monsters have penetrated every corner of entertainment, and they are the perfect literary device to talk about everything from racism to the dangers of nuclear war and to do it in a way that isn't preachy or heavy-handed. The subtle genius of Godzilla is that it got me thinking and talking about nuclear war, even when I was too young to understand what nuclear war even meant. Studying monsters in literature and movies is also a great way to find out what people worried about throughout the ages. Take Aliens . You might consider Aliens one of the greatest horror sci-fi movies of all time, but...

Jason Powell Talks Chris Claremont's X-Men

1471839235uncannyx men94
Geek Genie caught up with author Jason Powell on the release of his book "The Best There is at What He does - Examining Chris Claremont's X-Men" released by Sequart.   GG: Hi Jason. Congratulations on the release of your book! What made you want to write a book specifically about the Claremont run in X-Men? JP: Well I guess that my love of the X-Men is really tied to that particular run by Chris Claremont. I was lucky enough to be given a collection of comic books from my Uncle which had a good mix of Marvel comics (although he refused to give up his Spidey books!). I discovered the X-Men at the same time that the X-Men cartoon series was also taking off and so I really wanted to find out more about these chracters.   GG: Claremont's run is legendary for its soap opera and length of...

ROCKSTARS 01 ADV
It's Led Zeppelin meets The X-Files as writer Joe Harris and artist Megan Hutchison talk about their forthcoming Image Comics series "Rockstars".

Don Heck - A Tribute

7df3865eea5deb27338215245ccddfb9
I grew up in a small town, and while not quite as small as the fictional “Mayberry” of Andy Griffith fame… one of the main hangouts of my dad and his pals was the Barber Shop. It was called “Harry’s”, and if not for a small wicker basket tucked into a corner, it would have been the last place in the world I’d have liked to hang out. Now don’t get me wrong, my father and his cronies did have some funny stories to tell about glory days, but you can only get a kick out of them so many times before you’re relegated to a polite smile. Though that corner was polluted with age old hair clippings never swept up… it was my salvation. The wicker basket had all sorts of literature inside. Time, Look, Life, years old local papers, and the like. Nothing for a curious little boy...
