Everything Wrong With Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

Just so there’s no confusion (at least among people who read the description), we think this movie is bad-ass. But our motto does not allow us to ignore movies’ sins just because we like the film. Plus, you guys have REALLY been asking for this. So here are the sins of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.


Star Wars vs Star Trek: The Enterprise Strikes Back


Sequelitis – ZELDA: A Link to the Past vs. Ocarina of Time

Is Ocarina of Time REALLY the masterpiece we all say it is? What did it do to change how Zelda games are made?


Disney Characters Reimagined As The Orange Is The New Black Cast

Disney Characters Reimagined As The Orange Is The New Black Cast 570x839 SR Geek Picks: Disneys Orange is the New Black, Rise of the Apes Problems & More

Toy Wars

Playtime is over.


Pokemon Rusty: Viridian City Gym

Rusty finally comes face-to-face with his greatest enemy (other than “his own incompetence”).


Finally decided to offer my consulting services to Hollywood, free of charge, on the issue of reviving the horror genre. You might not agree with ALL my suggestions, but you’ll agree with enough of them to be questioning your own sanity by the time we’re done.


Missing My Bestie

A “Bestie.” We all have one. But what happens when your Bestie goes out of town? This.


Convos With My 2 Year Old – “THE ELEVATOR”

(Feat. SHAY CARL) Episode 7, Season 3.


A weekly show where knowledge junkies get their fix of trivia-tastic information. This week, John discusses First Ladies!

  1. Hi, stan lee here doing my usual cameo. so uh EXCELSIOR!!!!

  2. Yeah and I’m the queen of England

  3. Its interesting how John Green is a nerd youtuber but also The fault in our stars author.
    I couldn´t believe it the first time.

  4. how about screen rant show videos of the new people :)

  5. Wait a minute. You used the CinemaSinJeremy video on how to fix the horror genre but not the one I sent in weeks ago where he explains why Batman V Superman will crush Captain America 3 at the box office, reasoning that fans never had much demand for a Cap movie, they just wanted a decent action film and that’s why they paid to see The Winter Soldier en masse?

    Is it because of the NSFW language (which I’d warned about when I sent the link) or was it just too controversial to use on the site?

    I mean, it’s not like that one video would’ve ruined the Geek Picks format of crappy fan-made films, unfunny animated/sketch videos and endless, terrible covers of terrible Disney songs.
