WHAT CAN YOU BUY A GEEK FOR CHRISTMAS?

-
Christmas Darth Vader With Christmas quickly approaching I think that now would be a pretty good time to put on your shopping hat and go and buy some presents. That said, however, if one of you're loved ones is a nerd and you're unsure what to buy them, here, check out this selection of gifts that would make any geek freak like a priceless antique.





Doctor Strange


If you're looking forward to seeing the new Doctor Strange movie starring that English twat from Sherlock, then if I were you, please try to keep in mind that Stan Lee once produced a made for television movie based on the same character. First aired on American television in 1978, the CBS Network, Doctor Strange stars Jessica Walter (Morgan Le Fay), John Mills (Ghandi) plus Peter Hooton (Guess who?). Basically, this enthralling adventure tells the tale of Doctor Stephen Strange trying to stop Morgan Le Fay from opening the gates of hell. And does he do that? Well, you're going to have to watch this flick to find out. Now available on DVD.



Four decades of Star Wars history will come together for the first time in this highly illustrated year-by-year guide. Written by Ryder Windham, Daniel Wallace, and Pablo Hidalgo, the 328 page book will pull together a vast array of information from the films, comic books, novels, merchandise, and computer games, providing fans with everything they need to know about the phenomenon that is Star Wars. In addition to this, it's also chronologically arranged from 1973 to 2009, and includes stunning chapter openers for each decade, highly illustrated articles for each year that delve into important events, and, of course, fascinating facts about the influence of Star Wars in the real world (Star Wars™ Year by Year: A Visual Chronicle, £35, Published by DK, dk.com © & TM 2016 LUCASFILM LTD).





Based on the popular 90s cult comic book series of the same name, the critically-acclaimed 'Preacher' TV show, out now on DVD, follows a preacher from Texas called Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his hell-raising ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), all of which go on a wild, dark journey of revenge. These three rascals manage to blur the boundaries between good and bad, doing so in a world where it’s difficult to know who to trust and what’s right and wrong.

Before the X-Men, before the Avengers, and before the Guardians of the Galaxy, there was the Fantastic Four. No. I'm not referring to those two other films called the Fantastic Four, the ones starring actors such as Jessica Alba or Michael B. Jordan. Of course I'm referring to Roger Corman’s version of the Fantastic Four, that naff version starring Alex Hyde-White, Mercedes McNab, plus a number of other television actors nobody's really heard of. Anyway, as I was saying, before those highly respected Marvel movies were released this lesser respected marvel movie was, well, basically, pretty nth rate. But never mind, eh? Thanks to Uncork’d Entertainment, for the first time ever this documentary will chronicle the story behind this production, and will feature never before seen footage as well as new on-camera interviews with cast and crew including Mister Corman, Jay Underwood, Michael Bailey Smith, Joseph Culp, Alex Hyde-White, and Rebecca Staab.
