The DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film, Suicide Squad, hit theaters several weeks ago. And the movie has gotten its share of mixed reviews. While the fandom is not quite as divided on this film as they were on Batman Vs Superman back in the spring, the movie has still managed to create a divide between those who liked it and those who thought it was absolutely awful.

I am an eight-year DragonCon attendee and an avid Trekkie with many fun and exciting experiences under my belt, but a few mistakes along the way that taught me how to have a better Con.

Potterheads, it just keeps getting better. It was just announced that we can expect to have three more Harry Potter stories releasing next month!

However, this year, this Sister Geek will not be joining the fray. No, no, I have four very good reasons to sit my butt on my sofa, turn on Netflix, and ignore my family on Friday, November 25th:
