About The Dork Knight
James aka “The Dork Knight” is a blogger and writer based out of Upstate New York. For James, it all started with a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… when he dragged his mom to see The Empire Strikes Back 10 weeks in a row. He lives and breathes nerd culture. James is proof that a Star Wars fanatic can be a passionate Trekkie as well. So much so James dressed up as Captain Kirk to the premiere of Star Trek VI in 1991 and still has the uniform. When it comes to Comic Books, Sci-Fi or Fantasy whether in print or digital, in the theatre or on my TV screen, I’m all about it and I love it. So bring your Phaser (set to stun), Lightsaber, Sonic Screwdriver, a Wand, Mjolnir or the Ring to rule them all, because this site is for the dork in all of us.

“Maybe someday we’ll all wear forty two so no one could tell us apart.” ~ Pee Wee Reese to Jackie Robinson Being a fan of both history and sports, it was a no brainer to go and see the film 42 based on the life of Brooklyn Dodger great Jackie Robinson (played with great conviction […]
This past Friday saw the end of the Starz original series Spartacus. It was a far cry from the 4-Time Oscar winning film starring Kirk Douglas from 1960. For a cable television series it did however have the look and feel of a feature film. It is very reminiscent in terms of style of the film 300. […]
