Review of the New David Fincher Show "Mindhunter" on Netflix
We're big fans of David Fincher here at Nerd Nuptial and we're even bigger fans of David Fincher teaming up with Netflix (see House of Cards). So when we heard that Fincher was developing a new show with them AND it was going to on serial killers, needless to say, we were excited.
Mindhunter follows two FBI agents as the interview serial killers around the country and tries to see how they think. This takes place in the 1970s before it was commonplace for the FBI to profile and anticipate crime instead of just responding to it.
Mindhunter is a graphic show so please keep that in mind before you watch. We start the show with our spoiler-free impressions.
Blade Runner 2049
A sequel made decades after the iconic original. Blade Runner by Ridley Scott starring Harrison Ford came out in 1982 and its sequel Blade Runner 2049 was just released. We’re living in an era where prolonged sequels are becoming a mainstay. Terminator, Tron, Star Wars, and now this.
Blade Runner changed the landscape of science fiction in film and solidified Ridley Scott as a sci-fi master after Alien. Denis Villeneuve is no stranger to science fiction with his massive hit Arrival and soon we’ll be getting his Dune remake.
With Harrison Ford returning and Ryan Gosling leading the way, is this film a hit? Or is the whole not greater than it’s many great parts. Listen and find out.
Star Trek: Discovery Review
We’ve been waiting for this for 12 years and that time has finally come. Star Trek has returned to television … sort of.
Star Trek: Discovery is here and we couldn’t be more excited here at Nerd Nuptial. Tristan is a lifelong Star Trek fan and The Girl is just hoping for a good show. The first part of the episode was recorded just minutes before the premiere where we talk about our hopes and our own personal excitement for the show. We break, watch the show, and come back to finish our thoughts.
Did we like it? Did it live up to the hype or did it let us down? Listen and find out.
What did you think of Star Trek: Discovery?
Is putting away your nerd stuff a sign of growing?
The entire purpose of this show is to talk about what it's like to be married AND nerds. Sometimes those two identities can conflict. Last weekend we finally pulled the trigger and took out all of our movies, figurines, art, etc and made that room a full fledged nursery. I have to admit it was an emotional crisis at times. Is this a sign of getting older? Are we boxing up our nerd identity and turning it in for a new one?
Listen to hear us discuss this as well as some of the movies we've been catching up on including Logan Lucky by Steven Soderberg.
Why James Cameron should shut up and what we're looking forward to this Fall
You most likely have heard about James Cameron opening his mouth and criticizing Wonder Woman and the work of Patty Jenkins last week. You can probably guess where we fall in our stance on the debacle. However, don't judge us prematurely. We criticized Wonder Woman plenty in our review which you can listen here. It's how Mr. Cameron chose to criticize the film and what it has meant to so many women and young girls around the globe.
After that, we discuss what we're excited to see this Fall in the realm of TV and film. We start the show with our late to the party review of Master of None.
