Talking Movie Trailer Trash

This post contains affiliate links.

One of my husband’s favorite things to do is call me into his office/man-cave at about midnight to watch movie trailers. Together we oooh and aaaah over forthcoming flicks, or look at each other and wonder how something ever made it to production. There’s another Kansas City couple that shares this interest – which they then share with others in the Movie Trailer Trash podcast. Read on to learn about this movie review podcast, and why it may earn you weird looks from strangers.

SciFlix: The Science Behind Sci-Fi

This post contains affiliate links.

As any good geek family, we watch a lot of movies, both at home and at the theater. When something extra-ordinary or supernatural happens that we don’t quite follow how it happened, we refer to it as “eh, comic book science” – as in, it doesn’t have to be founded on actual science to be entertaining.

But there is a group in Kansas City that not only watches science fiction movies – they dig into the actual science behind the plot and action and discuss real life examples. Allow me to introduce you to SciFlix.

SciFlix is a science fiction movie watching group in Kansas City, designed around taking the science, the theories, and the ethics in popular fiction and discussing it openly and honestly. Learn more on KCGeeks.com!
