Contest: Win Game Night on Blu-ray and DVD!
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks, arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So, when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all part of the game…right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this “game”—nor Brooks—are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had…or, it’s game

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris—an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack.

Geek Music Episode 134: Karen Walker (My Wife!)
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to my geek-adjacent wife, Karen Walker, about her thoughts on geek music and this podcast. She actually requested to be on, and I’ve been wanting to have on fans of geek music, so this seemed like a good opportunity to do exactly that. The closest thing to planning that we did was that I gave her the questions in advance, something I don’t typically do. We didn’t discuss her answers, although obviously I had some kind of idea what most of them would be. But she did bring up some stuff that I wasn’t necessarily expecting, so it makes for an interesting discussion, I
Contest: Win Disney’s ZOMBIES on DVD!
Disney's ZOMBIES is a music- and dance-filled story set in the fictitious world of Seabrook, a cookie-cutter community brimming with perky conformity 50 years after a zombie apocalypse. Today, the zombies pose no threat, but are required to live in Zombietown, an isolated, rundown community infused with their unique creative spirit. When zombies are finally allowed to enroll in Seabrook High School, the charming, charismatic zombie Zed, who is determined to play football, meets freshman Addison who dreams of being a cheerleader -- the ultimate form of status in Seabrook. Addison takes a lot of flak for befriending Zed and his zombie friends, but comes to learn that zombies and cheerleaders aren't so different after all. Zed and Addison work together to show Seabrook what they can achieve when they embrace their differences and celebrate what makes them a
