"Upside Fans"

They're your Glass Half Full type of fanboys who aim to always look on the Upside! Even when they dabble in the Dark Side, they pride themselves on staying in the light. But mostly...they just talk about geeky stuff they love. Movies, Comics, Games, TV and a bunch of stuff that's not Football, its all here! They also host a segment called "The Fandom Menace," where they take a not so loved property (mostly movies) and find the good in them. As you can imagine...some weeks are harder than others. It's a weekly "geekly" conversation galore that they hope you get a kick out of!

The Man of Steel faces off against the Dark Knight as Warner Bros./DC Entertainment pit two superhero icons against each other while simultaneously launching their own Cinematic Universe. It's been a 3 year rollercoaster of marketing controversies, hype machines going overload and a rumor grapevine so big we could start a vineyard. But now...it is here! And surprise surprise...we saw it! And...we have A LOT to say.

Who wins? Does Affleck pull off the cowl? Is Wonder Woman done justice?

Welcome to the Debut Episode of "UPSIDE FANS."

Find yourself coming across a little too much cynicism across the web? With once "nerdy" and "geeky" things now popular, mixed with your average brand of pessimism, it can be hard to always see the light side...but not for us. Lend your ears to us Half Glass Full type fans that love what we love and love talking about it.  They aren't above calling out BS, but we try to celebrate more that degrade (rhyme?).  Looking for unapologetic (yet fair) fans? Well then...come here my little friend, don't be afraid.   

We also host a segment called "The Fandom Menace," where we take a not so loved property (mostly movies) and find the good in them. As you can imagine...some weeks are harder than others. It's a weekly "geekly" conversation galore that they hope you get a kick out of!

On this Episode: Personal Introductions of ourselves and the podcast AND we talk about Movie Hype? Does it help or hurt a movie?
