Metaphorically speaking, of course. Hey, remember back in September when WIlliam Shatner made the bold claim that Star Trek was better than Star Wars? Well, Carrie Fisher finally got around to making a rebuttal video in defense of her movies. I don’t know that her argument is any more well thought-out than Shatner’s (although it is fun to hear each franchise’s stars echo arguments spouted off by obsessed nerds for decades) but Fisher does seem more like she just wants to give Shatner shit instead of really argue, which is fun. A little weird at some points, but overall fun.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
