  • Binging on Mads Mikkelsen Films (Part 6)

    This going to be my last batch of reviews for a while as I am headed off to Comic Con. Yes, there will be a Hannibal panel. No, Mads won’t be there. But I will! And reporting on the panel is something I plan on doing right here on The Geekiary.  In this installment I […]


  • Much Ado About Nothing: Whedonites and Shakespearians Unite

    Joss Whedon, once merely the nerdy niche-genre mastermind behind such underappreciated shows as Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, finally found some real mainstream success with his recent helming of The Avengers. But immediately afterwards, as if startled by a project of his making several boatloads of money instead of being summarily cancelled, he did something unexpected. […]


  • Pacific Rim: B-Movie Monster Flick Bringing its A-Game

    From the headline alone you can tell that I am a fanboy and, yes, this movie was made for me. It was made for all of us geeks that have waited a lifetime for a movie like this, and it was hand-delivered by genius director Guillermo del Toro.  The movie features colossal beasts called Kaiju, which […]


  • Binging on Mads Mikkelsen Films (Part 5)

    Here we are fifteen films into my binge. It’s been an adventure. Mads has been adorable, a badass, well groomed, kind of grungy, altruistic, villainous, sad, more sad, and completely devastatingly sad. Did I mention sad? Because there’s a lot of it. In this installment I’m reviewing Prag, Die Tur, and Tom Merritt. For reviews […]


  • 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 […]
