Happy Monday my fellow dorks. Today in the United States we celebrate the legacy of not only an American hero but a hero for humanity, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There has been a handful of films and documentaries that looks into the life of this extraordinary man. The following are my personal favorites.
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.
Happy Friday my fellow dorks! Here is a follow-up to Tuesday’s post that you will like: This past Monday I was a guest speaker to a group of Girl Scouts. We talked about what it meant to be a superhero. Many of these girls are classmates of my daughters. The other day, I found out […]
Yesterday evening I had the honor and privilege to be asked to speak on the subject of superheroes to the local Girl Scout Troop 10123. As part of their journey the question of “what is a superhero?” was being explored. Enter the Dork Knight. This was a fascinating topic when you consider my audience consisted […]
It is often said that the Golden Globes are a prelude of things to come at the Academy Awards. If that is the case Les Misérables should have a very good night and perhaps Ben Affleck’s Argo as well. In case you missed it, here is a full list of last nights winner’s:
Happy Friday everyone! I figure let’s end the week with some humor. Serious humor but humor just the same. As important as it is to accessorize your costume for Comic Con whether its a lightsaber, a phaser or a Klingon Bat’leth, the geek bag is an essential piece to the puzzle. So what is a Geek […]
When the Green Lantern Corp added a new member as part of the NEW 52 it was both a welcomed and interesting choice. See the newest Lantern is Simon Baz and he is a Muslim. Comic books have always been ground breakers and DC with this new character is no exception. Created by Geoff Johns, Baz is […]
When Sylvester Stallone directed the first Expendables film reuniting the who’s who of 80’s male action stars, at first preview audiences snickered at the thought of these guys nearly 30 years past their prime hitting the big screen once again. But with a worldwide gross of nearly 600 million dollars, they still got it and […]
When Star Trek: Into Darkness hits theaters May 17th, it will be the second film after the successful relaunching of the Star Trek film franchise in 2009. Before the reboot, ten films were made between the years 1979 and 2005. The first six involved Kirk and Spock and the last four involving Picard and the […]
Fifty years and 23 Bond films later, and 007 is hotter than ever. The latest installment SKYFALL is the highest grossing film in the series with a worldwide box office take of over one billion. Six men have played the super spy who orders his Martini shaken not stirred. Each one bringing a new dimension to […]
In 2013 the sixth big screen feature of Superman hits theaters. I don’t hide the fact that when it comes to superheroes, there is only one and that’s Batman. But I have to be fair and acknowledge the one who started it all back in 1938. One could argue that after the first two starring […]
