Star Wars vs. Star Trek – Which One is Objectively Better?

This is a debate I’ve seen around the internet every so often, and one I’ve gotten into a couple times with my own friends in past years.  The two juggernauts of science fiction each have their own, large followings, with legions of fans to defend them to the last breath.  While both Star Wars and [...]

Passengers – Middle of the Pack

Did you know that Passengers is still in theaters, as of this post?  I didn’t until earlier today.  And, with that in mind, a friend and I went to see Passengers to find out if it’s any good.  In short: it’s decent.  Not amazing, but not awful.  However, it’s not quite the movie that I [...]

Video Games and Depression

It is a fair statement to say that all of us here at Duly Nerded have suffered from depression from time to time. It’s unavoidable, even people who are happy about everything feel depressed occasionally. Sometimes it can just seem like the entire world is against you or nothing you do seems to go right. [...]

Futurama – Welcome to the New Year

It’s 2017!  Now that a new year has begun and the holiday season has ended, we can all look forward to whatever is in store for the next twelve months.  As far as these silly little blog posts are concerned, I figure there’s only one good way to get things moving.  Much like Futurama began [...]

Rogue One – A Short, Spoiler-Free Review

It’s finally here, Star Wars fans!  For the past year, we’ve been waiting for Rogue One to finally hit theaters and show us what a Star Wars spinoff film can do.  Don’t worry, I won’t be throwing spoilers all over the place, especially within a couple days of the film’s release, but I do want [...]

Mass Effect – The Original Trilogy

With all the recent news about Mass Effect: Andromeda, the series has been put back on my radar in a big way.  As such, I’ve been thinking about the games a lot, and figured I’d briefly share my thoughts on each installment in the trilogy.  The story of Commander Shepard and crew might be one [...]

Top Ten Sci-Fi Anime

What makes something science fiction?  Well, science is a good place to start, but there are many other factors that can come into play.  Space, robots, time travel, computers, experimentation, technology as a whole; any and all of these can define something as sci-fi.  Due to the complexity present in a lot of sci-fi series, [...]

For the God Emperor!

I have been a fan of the Warhammer 40K universe since I walked into a Games Workshop when I was a kid. Initially, I just thought that the models looked cool. Especially the Blood Angels, massive warriors in red with huge guns and chainswords. However, as I grew up and became more involved in the [...]

Stranger Things – Remember the 80s?

Who isn’t talking about Stranger Things these days?  Well, maybe people who haven’t seen it or don’t care for it, but that seems to be the minority, at least in my experience.  After finally finishing the eight episode series, I feel confident enough to talk about it, as well, rather than sitting on the sideline [...]

Writing Prompt – “The Spires”

James went to bed, putting on his eye mask like he did every night. It had been a long day. He hated working at the factory and the long hours. At least they couldn’t make him work nights. He had had a few drinks to ease the nerves, he did every night, and soon passed [...]
