Share Your Favorite Geeky Movie Night

Alright fellow geeks - Bring out your favorite geeky movie on DVD. We'll put them all up for a vote and watch the two that everybody most wants to see. Leave the obvious choices at home, the ones that everybody has already seen 10,000 times (Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Matrix, etc.). Instead, please bring your favorite hidden treasure - a great sci-fi or fantasy film that many of us have not seen yet. Past choices have included "Free Enterprise" (with William Shatner rapping Shakespeare), "Gattaca", "Buckaroo Banzai" and "Dorkness Rising". My collection includes "Battle Beyond the Stars", "District 9", "Time After Time", "Flash Gordon", and "Wizards". What would you like to share with your fellow Austin Geeks and Gamers?

I'll provide the popcorn. Please bring sodas and snacks to share. See you then!

(And note, for those with allergies, that a very friendly golden retriever and three semi-friendly cats live here.)

    As always, it was fun to share and discover geeky films in the company of friendly fellow geeks at Johann's warm and welcoming home!

    It was a whole lot of fun. Johann was very gracious to host and everybody who came was warm and friendly; the movies were awesome too! I can't wait 'til the next one =)

    Had a blast as always. Enjoyed talking to fellow geeks and petting Galen and the kitty cats. I enjoyed the movies we watched.

    We saw "Flash <ahh-aahh!> Gordon" and the Rifftrax "Planet of Dinosaurs" with a dozen great geeks. Good times!

    The last time, we saw a comedy ("Free Enterprise") and one that was more serious ("Gattaca"). I think that would be a good pattern to follow.

      That would be just fine by me. Something to make me laugh, something to make me think. With great people. A perfect night.

    I normally advocate apocolyptically bad movies so I'll find something more enjoyable :). Blu ray or dvd?

    • Johann

      I have a blu-ray player, so either is fine!

    Hi, I know I just recently joined, but may I bring a guest?

      Absolutely, Griselda!

    I've been stocking up on some great Rifftrax DVD's I can bring. Planet of Dinosaurs should arrive very soon and I think this one will be a blast to watch! Hippie looking explorers in unitards running from claymation dinosaurs, how can you go wrong?
