  • There are some celebrities that leap to mind when you think about famous geeks. Kevin Smith, the man who made a living out of being a giant comic book nerd. Wil Wheaton, the Star Trek child star who now plays board games for an audience of thousands. But these big names in nerddom aren’t the only ones that are sneaky geeks behind the scenes. There are some surprising stars who have nerdy hobbies and aren’t afraid to admit it! From board games to video games, these big names are proving that anyone can be a geek in their spare time.

  • We just love Bette Midler so much. Not only is she responsible for being the wind beneath our collective wings, she’s also the star of many a literary adaptation. This powerhouse performer famously brought some of our favorite fictional characters to the big screen and we’re celebrating every single role. Darling, everything’s coming up Midler.

  • This winter brings a new film about lovers from different worlds to warm your heart...and no, we’re not talking about Netflix’s charming-but-predictable A Christmas Prince. It’s The Shape Of Water that is the surprisingly romantic addition to the December release schedule, a monster movie with a twist.

  • In Andrew DeGraff’s book Cinemaps, readers can track Marty McFly’s geographical journey through three different versions of Hill Valley, California, but there’s another aspect of Marty’s travel that can’t be captured geographically: his travel through time.

  • Ever watch a movie from the early 90s and think, “I know that kid! How do I know that kid?” We’re still waiting for Shazam for faces to be a thing. (Let us know when you’ve figured that out, Silicon Valley.) Luckily, we have IMDB and that no way feeling of recognizing the childhood self of a favorite actor. Today we’re celebrating – and remembering – a few fantastic actors and the roles they played as children for our very own League of Forgettable Child Stars.

     

  • We’ve got E.T. on our mind today and it’s a wonderful feeling. Our favorite extraterrestrial graces our pages today in a brand new picture book from illustrator Kim Smith. It’s enough to get our 80s-loving hearts a flutter. To celebrate this book’s release and the beautiful friendship between Elliott and E.T., here are some of our favorite interspecies friendships in pop culture.
