What we're about

For those of us who haven’t got what it takes to go full Geek

A group for those of us who love and admire the passion of true Geeks but just don’t have the stamina to fully convert. For those who have a love of pop, TV, comic and film culture and are always intrigued and full of questions when they met a ‘genuine’ but know that deep down inside they don’t have the willpower or vast attention span to be a true devotee to the life of Geekdom.

Of course all and sundry are welcome to join, the more the merrier, but if the following sounds eerily familiar you’ll certainly fit right in, like Han Solo in that bar scene where they meet the bounty hunter whose name I can't remember and I think someone gets his arm chopped off but I'd have to check.

• You probably - Can quote verbatim large chunks of your favourite sitcoms and films but you probably don’t write fan fiction

• You probably - Are always excited to see who will be the latest film Batman Villain/Marvel Superhero/Bond but you probably don’t have a very respectable and expensive collection of mint condition action figures

• You probably - Always liked (but are a tad intimidated by) the idea of going to Comic Con because it sounds like a great laugh but you probably don’t already have your tickets and hotels booked for the next three years and a special project book for costume ideas

• You probably - Every once in a while wander into a comic book store to try and find something great and often leave bewildered by choice but you probably don’t have an encyclopaedic knowledge of all comic book publishing houses and a collection you list on your house insurance

• You probably - Love bingeing on boxsets but you probably don’t post meta analysis essays on the internet when you reach the end

• You Probably - Consider yourself a Dwarfer but you probably don't know a single word of Klingon

• You probably - Do have a favourite Bond/X-Men (X-Man?!)/Doctor/Sherlock Holmes/ Fantasy/Sci Fi Novel/Star Trek/Joss Wheldon Series or Film but you probably don’t have a detailed explanation of why your choice is the only logically correct one.

• You probably - Love Cracked.com but you probably don’t write for Cracked.com

Meetups for cinema trips to see the latest Marvel, indie and indeed Indy films, swap tips for stuff to read or watch and generally getting your geek on in a low pressure setting.

Update July 2015 - We have now started The Post Meetup Pin Board under the discussions tab - This is where members can pin links to cool stuff and tips shared during meetup chats and will hopefully develop into a veritable smorgasbord of awesomeness, as we share our love of all things geeky!

Following our first meetup we have our one and only motto nicely summarised in this short Youtube clip

Space Jam A New Legacy

Odeon Great Northern

Time not confirmed will confirm closer to the date of the event.

Hey everyone

WHO READY TO JAM!!!
BECAUSE I AM!!

Superstar LeBron James and his young son, Dom, get trapped in digital space by a rogue AI. To get home safely, LeBron teams up with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang for a high-stakes basketball game against the AI's digitized champions of the court -- a powered-up roster called the Goon Squad.

I loved the first Space Jam movie and I’ve been looking forward to hosting this film.
I’ve been huge Looney Tunes fan since I was kid and if your fan of Looney Tunes as I am then come join me for a Looney virtual basketball game film to enjoy!!!

AND WE'RE BACK...............possibly

Needs a location

Well, that was shit, I think we can all agree! The date on this is completely random - this is just a tentative finger in people's earholes (ewww!) to get your attention & see where everyone is at and what (if anything) people would be comfortable doing over the next couple of months - think of it as The Council of Elrond (yes of course! I had to google that) but all the characters are slightly chubbier than their normal selves & slavering over the thought of a draught pint like Gollum! - Drop suggestions below or just say Hi - you have all been sorely missed! G xxx

Edit: Oh it's lovely - you're coming back - it feels like putting on your favourite summer dress after the long winter!

The Suicide Squad

Odeon Great Northern

Time not confirmed will confirm closer to the date.

Hey everyone

Who ready to watch crazy insane criminals (not by their choice) save the world!!!

Yes James Gunn is jumping off the Marvel boat and jumping on DC boat and giving us a ton of super villains who are forced to save the world!!!

The government sends the most dangerous supervillains in the world -- Bloodsport, Peacemaker, King Shark, Harley Quinn and others -- to the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Armed with high-tech weapons, they trek through the dangerous jungle on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Col. Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave.

If your huge fan of James Gunn’s work. Then come join me for DC villainess crazy action fun.

Breakout Manchester
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

https://breakoutmanchester.com/
A great suggestion from several group members - looks like a howl. You need to book in advance so I need some idea of numbers (and to work out the paying in advance bit of the website) - Some members have done this before so we might end up with several teams doing different rooms - who knows? - Make it so!
