I promised a post of my Sydnova review by today, and though there are only 40 minutes left to this day, I have delivered. Bride of Film Nerd will be posting soon (she has been a little busy helping me improve this blog), but until then, please read and see pics of my Sydney Supanova experience!!
This blog is not yet a year old, and here I am able to celebrate 100 posts (keep in mind, this only includes blog entries, and not separate pages dedicated to special events). As such, I am reflecting back on what has been written and what has been achieved. It is very clear that our most popular entries are reports on conventions, such as Armageddon and Supanova. These reports will keep coming, with Urban Fantasist visiting Brisbane Supanova right now, and Fourth Verse attending the Melbourne equivalent next week. I will kick their butts to make sure they get their reports up in good time. I imagine both those contributors will also attend Sydney Supanova, which will also be attended by myself and Bride of Film Nerd.
Less viewed have been the film reviews to date, except for really niche films and TV films such as the Hornblower. New releases also tend to get a higher rate of hits. This is not surprising given the sheer multitude of movie reviewers there are out there. I am not deterred, having a real passion for film review, and this is an element that will never be absent from this blog. However I will start reviewing seasons of television series (I am currently marathoning both Doctor Who and Smallville), to increase the amount of output of stuff that it is harder to find reviewed elsewhere. I am also considering adding a few other elements (action figures, video game reviews), so keep tuned.
While I get my act together though, I notice a few franchises in which only one film has been reviewed to date (Toy Story, Narnia, Iron Man, and the Millennium trilogy all spring to mind). So while I am unable to afford much cinema going at the moment, these films will also be a short-term focus.
Comments and suggestions are always welcome, and I look forward to Revenge of the Film Nerds celebrating 200 posts!!
Due to a few requests from friends and fan sites, I am in the process of uploading videos I took from Armageddon last weekend. This post will be updated over the next few days until I have all videos uploaded. The first and most extensive is my video of John Rhys-Davies, whose panel I tried to record all of, however my camera battery sadly did not last.

Revenge of the Film Nerds have continued their noble mission of exploring the world of Sydney geekdom by attending Armageddon at the Dome in Olympic Park this weekend. Our reviews and photos are in progress, but please feel free to see what we have made available online so far….
Yes, that is right, Revenge of the Film Nerds is taking the next step in its evolution. Though the site can still be accessed by the original Film Actually address, the primary site to visit us is now;
As such, our rebranding is now complete. But what’s in a name??? In addition to formalising this blog (which will very soon also feature its own logo), myself and my fellow contributors have some fresh plans for the future. Though we will continue supplying movie reviews, with a particular focus on genre films, ROTFN seeks to keep the Sydney geek informed of anything that may strike his or her fancy.
Following the success of our round-up of Supanava last year, the Film Nerds will be attending Armageddon next month. Keep your eyes peeled for our reports and photos of the event. We will also be looking to write reviews on a much wider basis than just movies. I am particularly keen to read what FourthVerse will have to contribute in the form of anime reviews.
A final note, in les than two weeks, there will be a brief hiatus in posts supplied by myself and Bride of Film Nerd, as we head on our Honeymoon. Given our destination is Middle Earth, however, get ready for a travel journal and photos to be posted on our return!!
Thanks for reading, and here’s to another succesful year!!!
On the weekend just past, Film Actually attended Supanova 2010 at Sydney Olympic Park. For a look at our experience of the event, please visit the blog page Supanova Sydney 2010.
