Praise for Zaki's Corner





"Where else can you find thoroughly entertaining, refreshingly honest, scholarly and irreverent commentary on pop culture, media and current affairs? Zaki's Corner is a playground for geeks, nerds, fanboys, news junkies and fans of good ol' fashioned passionate writing."

Wajahat Ali, Co-Host and Digital Producer, The Stream, Al Jazeera America


"I always enjoy reading Zaki's commentaries on movies, TV shows, comics, and other aspects of pop culture. More often than not, I'm in total agreement with him! And when I'm not, I respect his opinions fully because they are so well thought-out and so eloquently stated. Zaki's Corner is a regular stop on my web-surfing jaunts!" 

Glenn Greenberg, Writer, Former Editor, Marvel Comics


"When a highly anticipated geek flick hits the theaters, I don't check Rotten Tomatoes or AICN or your national columnist of choice, I check to see what Zaki is saying -- and that's the truth. No one manages to balance intelligent film criticism with the giddy joy of being a fan like he does. Throw in heaping helpings of entertainment news and measured, hyperbole-free social commentary and you see why Zaki's Corner is one of the few blogs I follow."



"I've known Zaki since we were teenagers coming up together in Chicago. His excellent blog reflects his varied areas of media interest, all of which he expertly navigates. We've both grown a lot in the past 20 years, and now I feel I can confidently say: This guy is the truth."

Azhar Usman, Comedian, Co-founder, The "Allah Made Me Funny" Comedy Tour


"Humorous, thought-provoking, and surprising. You'll encounter original ideas about politics, films, books, and other modes of communication, each conveyed with a witty and confident voice...Zaki blends rhetorical analysis, social commentary, and personal narrative in a way that has earned readers and viewers since 2004."

Andrew Wood, Author, City Ubiquitous: Place, Communication, and the Rise of Omnitopia


"Hopping over to Zaki's Corner is always worth the trip. Funny, SMART, entertaining and original. Most importantly it's free. No movie theatre will ever get my $$ before the film is Zaki approved."
