Back to the Future and Time Travel

Back to the Future and Time Travel

I have been working on this blog for over five months now, and while it appears to be really long, I can assure you, it has been very thought out and can be quite interesting. I would suggest at least having some basic knowledge of the Back to the Future series or time travel films in general.

For so many years, I’ve been hearing and reading how Back to the Future is the best time travel film series around. People have spoken about the characters and relationships, but really nailed down on the time travel aspect and how the series handles it with respect. I don’t agree with the latter half of that.

Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

News of Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been known for about a month now. Initially I was going to post a blog as soon as the news broke, but as the hours went on more and more news broke. So I decided to wait. And wait, and sadly wait far too long. Eventually I deleted what I had written down and then out of nowhere while at work, I had a sudden urge to write. So the following are just a handful of things I wanted to say about Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. My thoughts, and hopefully if you agree (or don’t) I’d love to hear down below in the comments. A quick warning of potential SPOILERS BELOW. (more…)

Ultimate James Bond List – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

The Ultimate James Bond List – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

The one and only George Lazenby James Bond film…it is a sad time. Make sure to show some support of the man and go watch On Her Majesty’s Secret Service while reading the list. It will be easy to follow along. So dinner jackets on and Martini’s at the ready, because this is one 007 film that will shake up people the most. Either you love it or hate it. Like always, if you feel that I’ve missed anything on the list, let me know in the comments below, or hit me up on twitter @truthfulnerd.

More on that picture later…but now onto more pressing issues on my mind 🙂

It has been a busy July so far. I’ve seen a few films and been catching up on a lot of gaming. Plus, I have also been working away at my first James Bond review, Dr. No. As I mentioned in my James Bond blog a few weeks back, each Bond review would also have an accompanying ‘ultimate’ list which would allow me to compare all the Bond actors and films across the years.

Bond, James Bond…

Bond, James Bond

007

You probably don’t know this about me, actually I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t because I’ve never mention it before now. I’m a big fan of the James Bond films and consider them my number one film franchise. I know there is Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Marvel Cinematic Universe and so many more, but James Bond is where my heart is.

Blog Update 001

It’s been a while and just wanted to let you all know, I’m still around. Thought I’d provide a blog update, the very first, and a let you all know what going on in my life.

First off the bat.

Hi, I go by truthfulnerd here on my blog, but also Ross Joseph in real life. You can find me on twitter by searching for @truthfulnerd. I warn you, my tweets are filled with language not safe for minors, so be careful. However I do post often enough to be interesting I guess. Plus lots of LEGO pics and nerd topics in general.
