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 "Flash Gordon", "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", 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.)

      I would vote for that- haven't seen it in ages.

    With this heat, a night of indoor movie watching sounds great. My DVD collection I find to be lacking though.

    I may need a spare folding chair or two if you can bring one.

    • Leah

      Barring being sick still, I'll be there with two chairs and a guest in tow.

      Hi! I'm pretty new to the group, looking forward to meeting everyone. I can bring some chairs. I'll throw 'em in the car in case.

      Ahh, a classic. However, we did just watch that one here about six months ago. Sorry you missed it!

      June 29, 2013

    • Kedar H.

    I am so far coming. It might change about 5pm. I am working third shift and have to be at work at 5am. I really want to watch a movie

    Sorry all, my brother is moving to Australia (seriously), and this is the last night available for him to hang with family before he leaves. Next time!

  • Scott M.

    I'll bring some soda. I'd bring a dvd too but all my movies are on a hard drive. Shame cuz I'm sure you guys would love Appleseed.

    I have Wizard of Speed and Time, but it is on VHS...yes, I am a luddite. But it is not really available on DVD...though wikipedia says: The feature film was filmed in 1983, released to theaters in 1989 (though it was never widely distributed), and was later released on VHS and laserdisc. Although there is no official DVD release yet, Jittlov's fans have (with Jittlov's knowledge and at least tacit approval) created a DVD image file, and made it available for free on peer-to-peer networks until such time as an official release is realized.

    Can you do VHS?

    • Johann

      Sadly, my VCR has been retired. Though I do remember Jittlov's films fondly.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.

Bill, started New York City Gay Craft Beer Lovers
