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", "Wizards", "Appleseed", and "Dorkness Rising". My collection includes "Battle Beyond the Stars", "District 9", and "Time After Time". 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.)

    A not-so-serious flick double header! Good fun.

    "Kung Fu Hustle" and "Battle Beyond the Stars". Both silly and cheesy fun!

    Can it be blu-ray? A couple of mine I only have in that format.

      Absolutely. I have a blu-ray player.

    In celebration of Pacific Rim I nominate Robot Jox! The first real American giant robot movie! Hopefully I can find it on DVD somewhere.

      I'd love to see Robot Jox. I can probably get the DVD if you're unable to find it. Let me know.

    The location is awesome. Only 5 miles from my current place. But i have to wait a little longer before i can Rsvp safely, as my work can change a lot in a month.
