Published 2 years ago by , Updated June 13th, 2014 at 10:02 am,

Welcome to Screen Rant’s “Geek Picks,” where we collect the finest movie-related geekery from around the Web for you. Today you’ll find a time traveling hard drive; a Kara “Starbuck” Thrace art print; a look at a live action Rise of The Guardians; a samurai stormtrooper; and the best book to movie adaptations. All that and more on this edition of SR’s Geek Picks!

To kick things off today, TheGeekTwins give us 7 reasons why Daredevil was one of the best superhero movies ever.


Best Movies Based on Books (Best Adaptations)

Hollywood churns out movies based on books faster than original ideas…there is even an Oscar category for Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay). With thousands of best-selling books turned into movies for the big screen, we found it necessary for Grae Drake, Senior Editor of Rotten Tomatoes, to count down the best movies based on books, or best adaptations.


Alternate Thor Ending

Check out this really cool alternate ending to Thor, which is one of the many special features being released with the upcoming Marvel Phase One box set, which is set to be released on April 2nd, 2013. It will include a ton of extras that includes footage from existing Marvel films, and some sneak peeks at some of the Phase Two films!


Real Life Holodeck

The Holodeck Is Real, and It’s in Stony Brook, NY.

  1. “Alternate Thor Ending”

    “Alternative” not “alternate”

    • Actually, no…it should be “alternate”.

      Grammar Nazis who are wrong on top of being annoying double the irritation factor.

      Please, don’t.

      • Haha.(Nelson laugh)

      • Actually, no. Please don’t perpetuate the myth that “alternate” is anything other than a verb. But a nice try at being funny. Keep practicing.

        • It’s not a myth if it’s true.

          Please (not for our benefit…for your own), learn to use a dictionary.


          You’re bordering on sad, about to tip over and fall, head first, into pathetic.

          Stop now. Please.

          Mike E….

          Thank you for showing him the ACTUAL meaning. :)

    • My, doesn’t someone look the fool now ^^

      • OH! and I really liked the “alternate” ending…
        I enjoyed Thor far more than I ever thought I would.

      • and sorry about the strange-looking formatting.. I have NO idea why it did that. All I did was copy text.

      • Nice alternativatingnatotinaveate ending.

        You can’t catch me Grammar Nazis!! (Blows Raspberry)

      • Nice bullets. Still wrong though.

        • In which alternate universe?

          • Heh-heh…Nice.

          • Bazinga!!!

        • Royal…It’s called a dictionary. Have you never seen one? Mike E wasn’t merely providing random bullet points; he was giving the definitions from such a dictionary.

          Before, you seemed to be either just trolling or pridefully attempting to avoid admitting you had made a mistake. Keep this up, and people are going start thinking you’re a moron…

          Consider that.

          • “start thinking”???

            • ;)

  2. Wouldn’t a real holodeck have actual holograms floating in 3D space within it rather than just walls covered with screens?

    • yeah, it reminds me more of “Stellar Cartography”!

      (my god I’m a geek)

  3. The alternating Thor ending does not conflict themetastically with what Heimdale said at the finally.

  4. If you guys at ScreenRant get your hands on the Marvel Phase One Box-Set teasers for the previous and upcoming MCU films, you should REALLY consider posting them on here.

    If not here, Youtube. You guys need to step your game up on the Social Media front by getting yourselves a Youtube channel to host your own clips, and have more reliable sources for your claims.

    • We’ll be sure to take that under advisement.

  5. SWORD reference FTW

  6. I thought the Rock as the tooth fairy was to stay a repressed memory
