Na Na Na Na Batwoman
00:31:12

Hey nerds! Welcome back to Nerdium, this week we discuss the latest coming down the line from the guys at the CW network. Batwoman is joining the Arrowverse family this December with a chance of it turning into a stand alone series. Arrow has been DC’s launch pad for a lot of their more successful live action material and now we’re getting some of Gotham’s finest. As we’ve all heard, Ruby Rose has been casted into the titular character with some controversy. However here at Nerdium we stand behind Ruby and can’t wait to see what she can bring to the Arrowverse! Let us know what you think of the news!

The Heroic Quest to the 80’s
00:44:20

Nerds, Geeks and country men! Lend us your ears! Welcome back to Nerdium guys. In this week’s episode, Matt and Cary once again delve into nostalgia and go on an epic journey discussing some of their favourite fantasy movies from the 80’s. The 80’s was a great decade for cinema which gave us many of our beloved actors and directors we enjoy today. We chat about a few of our favourite children’s fantasy epics that were incredibly dark and wouldn’t fly as kids movies these days as well as some more mature fantasy movies that… we somehow managed to also see. As always we tried to keep it under control so if we missed one of your favourites, give us a shout and we’d love to talk to you guys about your favourite fantasy movies!

First to the Key, First to the Egg : Ready Player One Review

We watch as the movie takes us through a pop culture riddled nostalgia ride as Parzival races to find the easter egg that will save the Oasis. There are a ton of spoilers in this episode so be warned.
