Justice League Film Review
The Justice League has united and we have seen it first hand onscreen. Regardless of the mixed reviews (which are slowly becoming less mixed), your favorite Nerd Nuptial team went to go see the movie opening day. Many people said it was horrible while even some of the more favorable reviews admitted to the plot being a mess but still enjoying the characters. We went into the theater just hoping to have a good time even if the movie might be subpar.
What is our stance? Did we defy the critics and love it dearly? Or did we ride the wave of negativity that the movie might have earned? Listen to find out.
Also, listen to hear the story of how Tristan almost got into a fistfight in the theater. We open the show with a review of Steven Soderberg's "Mosaic".
Review of Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok
Thor's history with Marvel has been divisive, to say the least. Many people agree that he is a great character but that his stand-alone films leave something to be desired. A lot of people would say the same thing about the Hulk. In Ragnarok, we get both in all their comedic glory. That's right, Thor enters the world of science fiction comedy.
Does this film deliver or is it just Guardians of the Galaxy 3?
Review of Netflix's Stranger Things 2
Just in time for Halloween, we're back in Hawkins, Indiana. The whole gang is here: Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Will, Nancy, Steve, Johnathan, Joyce, Hopper, and of course, Eleven. We also have a few new faces to grace the streaming screen. Last year, season one took America and the world by storm. It was THE show to talk about and you felt like you were a part of the in-crowd when you talked about it. There were several questions at the end of season one: What's the deal with Hopper's box? Where is Eleven? Did Will spit up a baby Demogorgon? Season two ventures to answer ... some of those questions.
This week we talk all about season two. What we liked, what made us uncomfortable, and what was a complete waste of time. Listen to find out if season two gave us the payoff that the audience thought it deserved after waiting over a year.

Below is our Stranger Things season one review!
Also, we teased on the show that we would give you a picture of Ripley's Halloween costume so here it is!
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.
