The Stump

Welcome to The Stump! We’ve recruited one of the Southeastern United States’ long-time geek culture purveyors and an outspoken observer of pop-media, Lucas Leverett, to author an ongoing column on all things geek; TV and movie reviews, conventions, events, tech and fan culture.

Michael Bay Sucks At Villains

After seeing the nonsensical disaster that is Transformers: The Last Knight, it was solidified in my mind that Michael Bay is just not good at good villains. Sure, many people love and hate the man for a variety of his… Continue Reading →

Anticipating The Last Knight, Cluelessly

I’m a pretty forgiving Transformers fan. I’ve been able to enjoy the Michael Bay films for what they are. That is to say that what they are could generally be described as a film-tech circle-jerk following a Cliffs Notes version… Continue Reading →

Wonder Woman Saves the (DC) World

The critics are loving Wonder Woman, and I am among them! This could be the film that signals a much-needed recovery for DC’s Extended Universe — a beleaguered series of attempts to join the venerable Marvel offerings which have dominated… Continue Reading →

Suck A Thick Zord, Haters of Saban’s Power Rangers

In our culture, littered with trolls trying to ruin everything before anyone even gets to see it, the film buzz of the week has been the notion that “Saban’s Power Rangers is not very good.” Having seen it, I can report that… Continue Reading →

Beauty and the Blur

Beauty and the Beast has been the box-office darling for the past week or two, scoring big on nostalgia, romantic notions and fairytale charm. The one place it doesn’t win is the quality of the 3-D. It’s actually a blurry,… Continue Reading →
