Plug Request: Positive Nerdery blog



Scott, you responsible this.

Thanks to you, I discovered Topless Robot. Now just over a year from the closing of Topless Robot, I’m trying my hand at blogging about movies, games and other assorted nerd adjacent topics. My most recent posting is a Logan FAQ, not sure if you’ve had a chance to see the movie or not, but you really should.

Keep up the Flashbacks!

​Damn, Topless Robot closed? I hadn’t been there in a long time, that’s too bad.

I did indeed finally see Logan on the weekend, and I LOVED it. Finally a movie where Wolverine can just cut loose and fuck people up in an R-rated setting, and Professor X can tell people to fuck off as well. Of course I already knew where all the story beats were going from the comics, but my wife less so and she was less enthused about the very dark and depressing direction of the story, to say the least. It definitely didn’t feel like a movie for date night, although she’s taking the little one to see Beauty and the Beast this afternoon anyway. Anyway, James Mangold is just aces doing westerns (3:10 to Yuma, anyone?) and this was a great ending to the Hugh Jackman run as the character.

Now if they reboot it, goodwill will be less forthcoming.​
