BWW Review: Geeky SHOGGOTHS ON THE VELDT From Rogues Gallery Suffers Pacing Issues
by Jay Irwin - Nov 16, 2015

Attention Nerds! There's now a theater company in town for us! And I don't mean musical theater Nerds or drama Nerds but good old fashioned Sci-Fi/Fantasy Nerds. Fledgling company The Rogues Gallery has come onto the scene and promises Geek Theater. And their inaugural production, "Shoggoths on the Veldt: A Cthulhu Adventure Comedy" certainly delivers on that promise. But as fun as it was and as much as I long for more geeky fare in general, this production certainly was in need of some tightening, both in pace and in script. (more...)

BWW Column: Oscar Nominations Maintain Status Quo, but I've Still Got Thoughts
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 14, 2016

Happy holidays movie Nerds! Nominations were announced for the 88th Annual Academy Awards this morning, and while I don't believe that there were any glaring, outrage-inducing snubs, I am going to go through the major categories and share some knee-jerk reactions. As is often the case for those of us that follow movie releases and award shows closely, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences didn't throw too many curveballs in this year's nominations, which means that there are a lot of people that have seen many of the nominees in the major categories. In fact, the Best Picture nominees have pulled in almost $602 million at the domestic box office, a pretty big number, considering half of them were released in the last two months and had to contend with the behemoth that is STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.
