SisterGeeks began in May of 2015 with a small group of friends who bonded over movies, television, books, and video games. Out of camaraderie, conversation, and confidence in the importance of our own opinions came SisterGeeks.net, a website for us to voice our thoughts on all the things that made us go “Squeeee!”
Over time, the ladies who contributed to the site and called themselves Sister Geeks changed. However, the vision, fun, and sisterhood of the site remained the same. We were still just a few girls hanging out, talking and writing about the stuff we liked, and hoping a few people might want to engage with us.
It has now been four and a half years and Sister Geeks has been a fun and fulfilling journey that has brought light and laughter into our lives, as well as memories we would not trade for the world. However, it would seem the time has come for us to move on to the next phase that life has for us.
Whether or not that will include movie reviews, book lists, and geek news, we don’t know. But we are certain of how thankful we are to have had this time together to be Sister Geeks, to bond over our love for all things geeky, to “Squeeee” together and rant and rave over the good and bad of movies, TV, books, and pop culture.
Thank you for joining us on this ride. You’ve been a wonderful community. Be good to yourselves and stay geeky.

HBO has done it again!

I’m talking, of course, about the new Watchmen series, based on Alan Moore’s 1986 comic series of the same name. If you haven’t yet experienced this show, you’re missing out, my friend.
Well, depending on who you ask, that is. Because if you ask my husband, he’ll tell you there are still three weeks until the official Christmas season arrives. However, if you ask the local craft stores, any Starbucks menu, or any of the television channels I’m talking about today, the season is officially in full swing! And if you’re anything like me, you’ve been ready for Christmas since at least November 1. So here’s the scoop on where to find your constant dose of super-sappy, over-dramatic, hyper-romantic, and amazingly cheerful movies playing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from now until Christmas day.
