Dear Geeks,

As you all know, we lost too many of the greats in 2016. We’ve grieved legends from TV, Music, Movies, Sports and more, and some particularly tough ones in the last week. But though we may have had a bad year, we’ve much to celebrate too.

  • celebrated it’s first birthday in 2016. Happy birthday to us!
  • The world got it’s first stand-alone Star Wars movie, reminding us why Darth Vader is the ultimate bad guy.
  • Disney tackled racism with Zootopia and grossed over a billion dollars doing it, making it the third most successful movie of the year behind Captain America: Civil War and Finding Dory. That is, until we find out how Rogue One does.
  • And ladies reigned with an all female Ghostbusters, Beyonce’s Lemonade album, and Moana (Disney’s really killin’ it this year), who proved she didn’t need a prince to be a success.

If you’re still skeptical, check out these two articles that list some of the best things 2016 left us with at NY Daily News and Us Magazine, and you’re sure to feel better about what might otherwise be THE SUCKIEST YEAR OF ALL TIME. That being said, can we resolve to protect the remaining gods of pop culture until science advances, then upload them to The Cloud forever?

Stay tuned this week for the Sister Geeks’ actual resolutions, and feel free to comment your own as we welcome 2017. It’s been a rough one, but here’s to sad farewells and new beginnings. We love you all, fellow geeks! Happy new year!

The first trailer for the film arrived yesterday. Check it out below and let us know what you think. Will you run screaming toward the theater or away from it when this movie shows up on July 15th?
