Porn parodies may be the last stronghold of the pun. Nowhere else is it embraced with such gusto. Porn parody is also an overlooked place for some solid social comment and celebration of fandom. After all, nobody makes fun of a piece of media with such depth without an element of love showing through. Woodrocket.com (NSFW, obviously) has taken it upon themselves to sponsor this genre that's usually relegated to the kitsch bin.

Christopher Nolan does not shy away from dense stories, and Interstellar is almost certainly his most complicated movie so far. With all of its theoretical physics and time manipulation, there's a lot to digest, and that's without having to keep up with the plot in general. So if you're confused, don't worry, here's our take on Interstellar's big questions.
With the open world RPG genre growing and evolving, developers have more technical and artistic license than ever to create vast unexplored worlds with plenty of unturned stones for the player to uncover.

Anyone who's ever attended San Diego Comic-Con (or gawked at the aerial photographs of the lines) will probably tell you that this event has to be the geek community's premier gathering spot. After all, where else can you see the Avengers 2 trailer early? But did you know that in terms of attendance, Comic-Con doesn't even rank in the top five for nerdy events?
