Thanks again to Black Girl Nerds (@blackgirlnerds) and India (@indiamovies) for putting together this awesome blerd geek get together.  It couldn't have been more fun Live Tweeting The He-Man and She-Ra: A Christmas Special.  And the podcast turned into a truly memorable way to end the year with great peeps and tweeps. You can check out the hashtag #BlerdGeekHolidayParty

  • We were first joined by @BlerdWords, who gave us a throwback with a He-Man rap.

  • The friends of GSB quickly called in and joined the fun!

  • I threw the show into chaos when I asked why Man of Steel polarized us geeks so much!

  GSB-Logo-Blogtalk-300x GEEK SOUL BROTHER AND THE 5 NERDY VENOMS airs live on Tuesdays at 10pm at TALKSHOE.COM.  We feature News of a Nerdy kind, Movie and Television reviews, and commentary about Geek Culture.  Join my nerdy friends and I, and special guest for a great conversation.   Make sure you subscribe to the Talkshoe page so you can get emails on upcoming shows.  And you can find us in ITUNES HERE.   Here's the Chat:

<ShareefJackson> ok i just joined as guest
<Guest 5> Hey guys!
<Guest 28> appreciate the comment to talk about science and math in a way that is accessible
<Guest 28> Blade Trinity is so awesomely bad that I rewatch it for fun:)
<ShareefJackson> thanks guest 28
<Guest 28> couldn't take the first Hulk because it lacked dignity. Remember how high Hulk bounced?
<Guest 28> RIP Peter O Toole.  SuperGirl also great for camp
<Guest 33> RIP Peter O'Toole (no, I'm not over it)
<Guest 33> Been watching Lawrence of Arabia on repeat gross sobbing
<IndaLauryn> People were comparing it to Superman Returns.
<IndaLauryn> In comparison, Man of Steel is practically a masterpiece.
<Guest 27> Man of steel was split between tradition and what a modern day superman would actually be
<jamiebgn> Excellent point Inda
<Guest 33> Opinions on the Batman vs. Superman movie/
<Guest 33> ?
<IndaLauryn> The climax was wayyyyy too long
<IndaLauryn> it lasted like 40 minutes!
<Guest 28> So true that I'm still thinking Christopher Reeve when I think Superman movie. So I rewatch Smallville tv collection. How about you guys?
<jamiebgn> I enjoyed MOS
<Guest 27> the mythos of superman was flawed to begin with
<IndaLauryn> Me, too, but they could have cut the climax by about 20 minutes.
<Guest 27> the idea that he had humanity was always a huge flaw to that character
<jamiebgn> Alot of folks were also upset with the fact that Lois Lane knew about the duality of Clark Kent and Superman
<Guest 33> He was raised by humans...a flaw? or inevitable due to environment?
<IndaLauryn> Jamie, I actually like that she figured it out. She's supposed to be a Pulitzer prize winning journalist, so she should have figured it out.
<IndaLauryn> But I enjoy MOS because I'm always here for Michael Shannon.
<jamiebgn> I agree...just saying that was a plot point that didn't sit well with some folks
<IndaLauryn> I know, but that's the one thing that makes sense, so I don't see why people got upset about it.

<Guest 28> love the current conversation about the motivations of the villain:) What's Skeletor's motivation?
<Guest 36> Baby in bed... blerdwords listenin in...
<Guest 28> Is he really like Scar from Lion King or an evil uncle from Shakespeare?
<jamiebgn> I really had no idea Skeletor's voice was that weak. It wasn't menacing at all.
<Guest 28> Skeletor has a kindness towards puppies and small humans that need jackets.
<jamiebgn> I guess as a kid I didn't really know the difference
<Guest 33> Scar, definitely Shakespearean...but there are a lot of movie chars. that are.
<jamiebgn> LoL Guest28
<Guest 28> If the cartoon was on mute, I would have been scared of Skeletor and piggy-snorting Hordak:)
<Guest 28> so cool to hear about the people's choice noms
