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.

Westworld: Bizarre, Expensive, Surreal, Intriguing

So, Westworld… “Trippy,” as the kids say. The premise of this story, in case you didn’t happen to recall it from the now-dated film by the same name, or the trailers, is a high-tech Western-themed amusement park inhabited by androids,… Continue Reading →

That’s No Moon…

Witness the firepower of my armed and operational cliché title.

Is Dragon Con Overrun With Costume Contests?

Make no mistake. This year’s Dragon Con, weighing in last weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, at an official number of nearly 80,000 attendees, was another win for the Southeastern fandom convention behemoth. As a volunteer staffer for almost 20 years, I’m so… Continue Reading →

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, and you’re up to date on the most recent episode, The Door, you know two things: where Hodor got his affliction and that it is part of a time paradox. This game-changing revelation… Continue Reading →

I Figured Out How To Fix Batman v Superman

Today, I saw BvS for the second time. Safely nestled in a normal theater — not the oversized hot mess of the IMAX where we received our original media screening — I was able to pass a better judgment on… Continue Reading →
