Recast Your Favorite Flicks with The Remake Factory Hostage Situation Podcast

We are big movie fans at KC Geeks HQ. While we were courting back in the day, my husband and I would often see movies – I distinctly remember seeing “Star Trek IV: The Undiscovered Country” while we were in college (opening night, of course). Then before-kids, we often had movie weekends, where we would see multiple movies over two days. We don’t get out to see quite as many movies now, but still look forward to the big geek blockbusters.

After each movie, we usually recap it, going over our favorite parts, or what didn’t work for us, or even reimagining it with different actors. Patrick and Jason, on their Kansas City-based movie podcast do the same thing – every week.  Read on to find out their unique spin that makes them a little different than “movie guys doing a movie show.”

How would you remake some of your favorite movies now? Meet the hosts of the Remake Factory Hostage Situation movie podcast on KCGeeks.com!

What Does It Mean to be a Geek?

So often when I talk to people about this site, or going to the latest superhero movie, or whatever, I either see some sort of sneer, or a sheepish look, with the reply, “Oh, I’m not really into comics.” Like that’s all that being a geek entails. Read on to see if you recognize yourself.
