  • Binging on Mads Mikkelsen Films (Part 4)

    Yes, I’m still binging on Mads Mikkelsen films.  In this installment I review his roles in After the Wedding, Jagten, and The Three Musketeers.  I’ve got four more films waiting to be viewed and, as always, I am open to suggestions about what I should watch next! For reviews of En Kort en Lang, Bleeder, […]


  • Binging on Mads Mikkelsen Films (Part 3)

    I’m now nine films in to my Mads Mikkelsen film binge. I feel like I’ve seen him in such a wide range of roles I’m kind of curious what’s left. I’ve seen him play a gangster, a film geek, a hopeless romantic, a warrior, an assassin, and a ridiculously upbeat priest. Sometimes I couldn’t even […]


  • Binging on Mads Mikkelsen Films (part 2)

    Continuing on my binge of Mads Mikkelsen films (see part one here) I’m going to be reviewing his roles in Blinkinde Lygter (Flickering Lights), Pusher I, and Nu. At this point my friends are probably going to assume I’m very cultured for watching so much Danish film. I was a film student, after all, so it’s […]


  • Binging on Mads Mikkelsen Films (Part 1)

    You know how it is when you watch a new thing, find an actor that you really love, then marathon everything he’s ever done? Yeah, that’s what I’m doing right now with Mads Mikkelsen. It happens sometimes. I haven’t been pulled into a fandom faster than I was with Hannibal. One week it was like […]


  • Korean Films You Should Have Seen By Now

    Sorry for the lack of updates! The Geekiary writers have all sadly been accosted by the specter of real life. Articles might be sporadic for the next couple of weeks. But I’m going to see Neil Gaiman next week, and several of us will be reporting from San Diego Comic Con next month, so stay […]



  • Star Trek Into Feels… I mean, Into Darkness

    The following review has spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness.  Only read on if you don’t mind being spoiled or have already seen the film. Remember how I said that I really really wanted some more Kirk and Spock interaction in Into Darkness?  Well I got it, but ouch!  Way to punch me right in […]


  • Just how racist is Iron Man 3’s “The Mandarin?”

    Casting white actors as characters of color is a time-honored tradition in Hollywood, whether they’re using hair dye and colored contacts to approximate a person of color (like with Private Vasquez in Aliens) or simply disregarding the character’s stated race and casting them as white (just about everyone in The Last Airbender and, arguably, Katniss […]


  • Review: Iron Man 3

    Iron Man 3 premiered in the US tonight, officially kicking off Phase Two of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. And what a premiere it was. Stunning action, razor sharp wit and some well-timed character development made for a well-crafted and surprising third installment. Warning: This review contains major spoilers for Iron Man 3. Proceed at your own […]


  • Give Me a #!$?@*)% Black Widow Movie

    This last year has been an interesting one for women in comic book movies. We got Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises and Natasha Romanov in The Avengers. Compare that to 2011, when the most prominent Marvel women on the big screen were Peggy Carter and Jane Foster of Captain America and Thor. Now, […]
