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.
It came to my attention recently that there are certain battles within pop culture, specific disagreements among fandoms, particular debates that have no definitive answers. These topics divide the masses in a friendly, yet passionate way, and will likely do so forever.
I hadn’t really thought about the existence of these divides within the culture, but once I did, I couldn’t stop thinking about them. Because I realized that I have a firm opinion about many of them. And furthermore, I’m staunchly ready to defend my position on these topics. At some point, without realizing it, I picked a side. I chose a team and didn’t even know it. So today, I’m claiming my colors and proudly proclaiming my stance on the really important issues, such as…
Marvel Studios has announced their plans for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Though, technically, the universe isn’t simply cinematic any more. It now features TV shows on the upcoming Disney Plus streaming service that are directly connected to the films. While there have been Marvel shows on TV during the previous Phases (see the Netflix Marvel series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, plus Agents of Shield on ABC and Cloak & Dagger on FreeForm), this will be the first time the TV shows have been announced in conjunction with the films and touted the same characters and actors that were featured in the movies. The official slate for Phase 4 was announced last month during San Diego Comic Con 2019 and I’ve got the complete breakdown and lots of details for you right here.
