Who Are the Writers?

This is a blog created by a person with too much time on his hands and too much love for geeky hobbies. We love movies, games, comics, books, arranging things into Top 10’s, ranting and other geeky passtimes, and we love being able to share those hobbies with anyone who’d care to listen (and those who don’t care)! Each contributor is here simply because of our passion for the material – feel free to browse our writings, leave a comment and subscribe so you don’t miss the next self-righteous rambling about whether Superman or Batman would win in a fight!

FYI, the answer is Batman. Always Batman.

LEGENDARYSUIT

Hiya, my name is LegendarySuit (or just Suit…or Jonathan to some) and I’m a lover of a lot of things. These things are movies, TV, video games, music, comics and much more. This love goes back years to the first time I ever saw The Dark Crystal. This film just made me love movies and the rest is history. I’m currently in college sure but it is these things and my love for them that truly eat up my free time. Apart from being a contributer here, I also co-host The Digital Dudes podcast where me and another fellow geek discuss anything and everything that relates to digital media. You can find the podcast on Twitter (@TheDDPodcast) or Facebook (just search The Digital Dudes). Also you can follow me on Twitter (@legendaryjonny)Things I Spend Way Too Much Time On: Watching TV shows and playing PS3 (find me at AutumnLeaves89 on PSN)
Random Fact: I actually have a degree in Criminal Justice

  1. Essentially spider man doesn’t have a weakness, it isn’t ever explored in the movies, he can only get severely low on energy. So hence Spiderman is invincible as opposed to the other superheroes. Allowing him to win any fight.

    Considering there are a bunch of you writers who make up the site I have no idea if this is a waste of time to mention, but I’d be honored if any of you checked out my movie blog that I’m quite proud of:
