Today's Nerd News is sponsored by the reindeer you see in the intro of our weekly show.
Those reindeer are handmade by my wife and are for sale!
Just follow the link to the etsy page in the show notes.
It's not too late to get them before Christmas.
They are extremely limited to only a small few made each year.
So buy them now before someone else does!
When it comes to Godzilla: King of the Monsters, much of the press has been focused on Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown.
But the latest trailer makes it seem like the real stars are the bad kaiju poised to battle Godzilla himself.
King Ghidorah, Mothra; and Rodan will of course grab the attention of any Godzilla fan, but will that be enough?
Is this one of those rare cases where even a good story isn't necessary?
Will the battles be epic enough to keep fans happy?
Solo: A Star Wars Story just can't catch a break.
First there was that whole director problem (that the movie never really got over).
Then it receives the low box office from fans so extremely disappointed in The Last Jedi.
Now it seems that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has officially disqualified the films score from Oscar consideration.
The reason is that Disney didn't make the November 15th deadline to submit.
Do you sense that Disney is setting this movie up as its scapegoat for the Rian Johnson problem?
As if Jason Mamoa hasn't already won over the attention of every female on the planet, he just solidified it even more.
In a recent interview with The Mirror he proclaimed that he was constantly crying on the set of Aquaman.
'I was constantly crying. I was raised by a single mother and I'm very connected to my emotions.'
He says he gets his softer side from his mother Coni.
He followed that with 'I'm not going to nor-mally get hired to play those emotional things – and I'm capable of it. I'm just trapped in a big, dumb body!'
So how long do you think it will be until he announces that his next major motion picture is some intense drama with tons of Oscar potential?
If it seemed like anime is everywhere recently, it might not be your imagination.
The Hollywood Reporter just published a story that says the industry raked in $19.1 billion in 2017.
Streaming was a big reason for this with Netflix, Hulu, and of course Crunchyroll playing a big part.
If someone was just getting into Anime, what would you recommend they start with?
