September Film Nominees

We're still trying to get back on track for September. We'll do a hand count of these movies tomorrow night at Movie Geeks, and the poll will remain up until 9/1. At that point, the film with the most votes will be the September selection.

We decided to go with Foreign Language films for September. Here are the nominees.

Admission is free.

The voting is finished and after a late surge, Trekkies will be the August movie. I saw part of the film several years ago and I really liked what I saw. The film is about Star Trek fans. Not the average Star Trek fans but super Star Trek fans. These people live Star Trek. Star Trek fans are often the target of jokes and mockery but I believe this film was made so that average fans can say "See, at least I'm not that bad."

I have only seen one Star Trek movie in my life and I believe it was the 9th film. I have also never seen any of the television shows. I have always been interested in why there are so many die-hard fans out there so this does at least give some insight in to that culture. It is also timely to note that the Star Trek movie series is getting a re-boot next year. From what I read, it will be an origin story so I do plan on seeing the film and figuring out what it's all about.

August 26 Movie Nominations

We are fulfilling our promise of getting this club back on track with some actual democratic voting. The theme this month is documentaries. Many people have asked if we would do this so we decided this would be the right time. The reason the voting is getting cut off so far away from the actual movie club date is because these films may be hard to track down. We will need a little time to find them. Here are the nominees. Just click on the link to read more about them.
