The Force Academy

Not located in a galaxy far far away (rather, just a short distance from the Lachine Canal), the Force Academy offers a unique experience where you'll be able to awaken the Jedi Knight or Sith Lord in you for a day.

If you are like me and are anxiously awaiting Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I could guarantee your time at The Force Academy suck you in the environment as participants are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character as the score of the films play, as you advance through the exercises.

"Brigsby Bear" Delights Lightly

Brigsby Bear is a comedy about a man in his thirties who learns that the only people he’s ever known, his loving parents, are actually two criminals who kidnapped him as a baby and brainwashed him into believing the outside world was (literally) toxic. His favorite TV show and the target of his obsessive fanboyism, the hilariously surreal lo-fi production Brigsby Bear, is really a propaganda tool created by his fake father, played by Mark Hammill (who is a joy, although not overburdened with things to do in the film).

Battle of The Jokers on #GeektastiqCypha

 
If you've played F*ck/Marry/Kill then Drain/Team-Up/Defeat this will make sense to you!
 
Essentially you are Draining the essence of one character (whether that be powers, personality, strengths and weaknesses), Teaming Up with another (hello life partner) and defeating the last (bye boy bye).
