Vampires vs. the Bronx (2020)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Vampires vs. the Bronx (2020). It's a delightful horror comedy movie in the vein of The Lost Boys but with a real and heartfelt look at the Bronx. Definitely check it out. In the news, Rym had some plumbing problems, the NHL Draft went well for the Rangers (as expected), and the FBI foiled a coup attempt/kidnapping plot by right wing nutjob militias.

Wolfwalkers

Tonight on GeekNights we review Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart's fantastic Wolfwalkers. Don't wait for us to tell you about it: just see it as soon as possible. In the news, Irresponsible Captain Tylor is getting a collector's ultra edition, Discotek has a number of fantastic announcements, the Game Devs of Color Expo is this weekend, and we'll be at PAX Online on Friday!

Parasite (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the award-winning 2019 Korean film Parasite. We hope you didn't make plans. In the news, Scott's still Zwifting, Wolfwalkers is also available on itunes, and Millennials shouldn't have to work until they're 70.

Ride Your Wave

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the latest animated film from Science Saru, Masaaki Yuasa's Ride Your Wave (きみと、波にのれたら). It's exactly what it looks like, but masterfully executed and definitely worth watching. Its themes overlap heavily with Lu Over the Wall, using water as metaphor for death and/or transformation.

In the news, another water-based anime movie Children of the Sea is also in theaters, Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It is definitely an anime, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power continues to get better and better with season four, Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts is so far delightful with some Adventure Time vibes, and the secret entrance to Anime Boston is now gone.

Weathering With You

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Makoto Shinkai's latest movie Weathering With You. It's beautiful, but its themes are muddled. We reviewed his The Place Promised in our Early Days back in 2005, and more recently Your Name in 2017. We can forget Children Who Chase Lost Voices, which we talked about in 2011.

In the news, Queens bus route meetings attract a particular kind of person, Ride Your Wave is in theaters one night only on February 17th, Funimation dropped a terrible porn anime for which the fandom seems to overlap entirely with the "ahego shirt" crowd, and we will be live at PAX East 2020!

Promare (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Studio Trigger's first theatrical animated film: Promare. Go see it. It makes Redline look positively tame. It's Studio Trigger: The Anime.

In the news, the Lupin III CG trailer looks hot, Carole & Tuesday is utterly fantastic so far, Rie Kugimiya will be a guest at Anime NYC, and the Vic thing is basically over. We've also reviewed a lot of anime over the last 15 or so years of GeekNights. So, here are just the reviews, without the other stuff, on youtube and Patreon! We'll try to get a new one up every week.

The Matrix (1999)

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1999 film The Matrix. In the news, nobody wins the Pokémon T-Shirt Contest we discussed on Tuesday, a bill to ban games that abuse children with loot boxes or pay-to-win has bipartisan support in the senate, and I'm Gonna Have Me Some Fun is one of our favorite movies. Also PAX West 4-day badges return, and you should be on HIGH ALERT starting Tuesday.
