Harry Potter: Movies Before Books

Hello fellow Harry Potter fans! It’s Harry Potter week, and that means getting ready for HP movie marathons and re-reading the series! When I entered the world of Harry Potter, you could say I entered in reverse. I actually watched the movies before I read all of the books. This is very unusual for me, since I always try to read the book before the movie adaptation comes out. However, when I was younger I just couldn’t seem to pick up the books and read them. I like to think of it as something that was meant to be. With that being said, there are some pros and cons to experiencing Harry Potter in “reverse.”

Pokémon GO from Different Perspectives

On July 6th, Pokémon fans everywhere grabbed their cellphones and raced to the app store to download Pokémon GO. One step outside and it was clear that everyone was out to catch Pokémon. The word spread like wildfire, and the Daily Geekette sparked a great idea. We wanted to share our experiences of our Pokémon GO journeys with each other and with our readers. Without further delay, here are the different perspectives of the Pokémon trainers at the Daily Geekette. Ready, set, go!

Fatherhood and Fandom

Fandom tends to be seen as an inherently male interest.  We have so many cultural stereotypes enhancing this belief.  From The Big Bang Theory to “the fake gamer girl,” nerdiness always seems to start as something male, and then move towards women.  For a while, this was pretty accurate.  In 2010, only 35% of New York Comic Con attendees were women.  However, as time goes on, these men get married.  They have kids, and they pass on their nerdy genes.

With that in mind, I asked my fellow writers if they had inherited any of their geekiness from their fathers, or for any good stories about how their fathers inspired them towards the nerd community.  Here are the responses I got:

Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 (Day 1 Recap)

Every year, millions of gamers look forward to the Electronic Entertainment Expo, otherwise known as E3. Since I was not able to make it to E3 in person, I did the next best thing and attended the event virtually. June 14th and 15th I dedicated to watching the Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3. This will be the recap of only day 1. I felt the need to give anyone out there who couldn’t attend in person or virtually an in-depth recap of the most anticipated upcoming video games. Us gamers have to stick together, right?

Fuller House Reaction

When it was announced that Fuller House was coming to Netflix, I was so incredibly excited. I’m a sucker for nostalgia, and remakes and spinoffs appeal to my more nostalgic soul. Though when I was preparing myself for blasts from the past and throwbacks, I never could have prepared myself for what the show actually was.

From catch phrases to remaking old scenes, this show is not for new fans. It is to please the already existing, extremely large, and supporting fan base. By the end of the season you might even be saying, “Oh mylanta!”  Continue reading Fuller House Reaction

Scream Queens Series Premier Reaction

Amanda:CIM9ibJUMAIgduI.jpg-large
To some people a new television series premiere is like a first impression. The viewer tends to pick out what they do and don’t like about what’s in the episode. If it’s pretty good, the viewer comes back for more, but if it isn’t then they usually just move on to their other beloved shows. Scream Queens was pleasantly entertaining from start to finish. It was one of the first series premieres that actually gave viewers two whole hours worth of show time. Continue reading Scream Queens Series Premier Reaction
