Nerd News – 10/8/13

Loads of great content up in this week’s Nerd News!  Firefly Kids

  • Looks like there will be another Narnia movie in the works.  I enjoyed the first one, but the last two were a bit on the shaky side for me.  The Silver Chair might just be my favorite Narnia book, so I hope they do it justice.  Here’s hoping for Tom Baker to reprise his role as Puddleglum.
  • My good friend and “fiancé-in-law” Chris Yokel shared a really interesting comparison between Firefly and Joss Whedon’s newest, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series.  Check it out on his blog.
  • I know in your social media perusing, you’re likely bombarded with approximately 300 bajillion, 25 flying fafillion BuzzFeed lists.  They’re either hilarious or obnoxious.  Allow me to share a delightful one with you here today–10 Classic Fandoms Imagined as Kids that Will Warm Your Heart.  
  • Looking for some spooky Halloween films that will make you think, spook you, but not knock you for a loop with gore and violence?  My friend Dr. Amy Sturgis can help you out.  Personally, I don’t do horror, but Amy’s thoughts on these films have compelled me to watch a few in years past and I’ve really enjoyed them.  Check out all the Halloween fun here on her blog.
