This week I begin counting down my ten favorite movies by taking a look at what has become a modern classic- Napoleon Dynamite.

Why does this film and its message still resonate with fans and audiences all these years later? How did such a quirky, low budget film hit it so big? I talk about that and a lot more on this week's episode. Plus, I have a written review on my web site. 

You'll want to keep checking back over the coming weeks to see what other films have made my list.

Check out my web site thegeekymormon.com for written reviews of the films discussed on the show.

This week is all about Solo. I had the opportunity to go see the film last Wednesday with my son, and on this episode I share my thoughts with you about the movie.

I discuss the plot and the story- how would it have been different if they had not dismissed the original directors and brought in Ron Howard? Would it have been better or worse? 

How did these new actors do portraying these beloved characters we have know for so many years? 

How did Han get his last name?

It's all here in this one action packed episode.

In this epsidoe I cover some of the basics of Doctor Who and give some reasons why I love this show so much. There is a lot to cover with a show that has been around since 1963, so I can't hit it all in one episode. I just kind of introduce who the Doctor is, why the Doctor does what he does and why it matters. 

I also talk about how I got into the show, and offer some pointers on how to get started with the series for people who may be new to the franchise. I also warn about some of the ugly fans out there who don't think you're a real fan unless you like this Doctor or that episode. But most fans of Doctor Who are awesome.

In this episode, I discuss the fandom for me that almost wasn't, but totally is- Harry Potter- I talk about being too cool at first to get into Harry potter, and happy I was when I finally gave in and started reading the bboks. I talk about the two guys at work who totally convinced me to read the books, and how grateful I am that they did.

I also discuss what Harry Potter meant to me and my wife as we were first married, and how it was a way to bond together in a whole new way and why that mattered. It's still my wife's favorite fandom and some of her favorite books.

Then I discuss how Harry Potter has become a multi generational thing for me and mfamily- how my kids love it now as much as I do and how it has brough my family closer.

This is the introduction to you on my love for this series of books that has become so much more.

Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers!

 

I am not afraid to talk about anything on this podcast. No spoiler is safe. I am not shying away from any topic. If you have not seen this movie, do not listen to this podcast episode. Please wait until you have seen it, and then come back.

I break down the story, the characters, the major things that happen, and in a n hour, I still didn't cover everything. If you want the short version, I loved this movie, even more than I thought I would. It has been a lot of fun to think about and then it was fun to talk about it all.

Holy cow! I can't believe week six is already here. I was so excited to sit down and talk to all of you abiut Star trek: The Next Generation, a show that I hold near and dear to my heart. It was the highlight of my week to prepare for this show and get it ready to share with everyone. I hope I do the topic justice. Mostly, I just had fun with it.

In this episode, I talk about why this [particular show means so much to me. Why it mattered to me as a kid, and as a result, why it matters to me still today. This show meant a lot to me during some pretty tough stuff in my childhood life upbringing stuff.

I also talk about the one thing I felt made this show so great. There were a lot of things that were good and great about this show, but there was one thing, particularly, that stood out to me and made this show one of the great shows of my youth and my adulthood and my eternity. I talk about that one thing on this epiusode.

Finally, I end the show by talking about some of my favorite episodes from the show, and what I liked about them. There are a ton to choose from, and narrowing them down is always rough, but these are the kinds of things I am willing to do for you, my listeners, because you matter to me.

Have questions about this show, or comments and feedback? Have suggestions for future episodes? Please email me at thegeekymormon@yahoo.com. You can also follow me on Twitter or Instagram @thegeekymormon, or you can follow along on Facebook. If I were you, I would follow me on all three.

I take a walk down memory lane, looking back on my personal history with Superman, and how much he has mean to me from the time I was a little tike until now. I also ramble a little bit about Slurpees, McDonald's cups, comics in the 90s and other things.

In the end, I discuss why Superman has lasted so long, why he still matters and why I think he will continue to matter for a long time. This epsidoe is a long one, but it's hard to talk about my favorite guy in under 30 minutes. There's just so much to say, and I didn't even say all of it. Not even close.

What were some of the things from your childhood that meant a lot to you, that still mean a lot to you?

It's Episode 4! And this week is all about a summertime favorite movie of mine, The Sandlot. I sat down and watched this movie with my son Jak, and he was nice enough to join me on the show to talk about it. 

We give a brief summary of the main plot of the movie, and then we talk about our favorite parts, our favorite characters, and overall what we thought about the film.

Jak also learns about Erector sets and the difference between being an introvert and an extrovert. And he gives some sage advice if you ever find yourself in a similar situatuin as Smalls in the film and you are new to town and needing to make some new friends.

This episode was a lot of fun to record, and I really enjoyed having Jak on the show.
