We here at TheNerdMentality have a huge love of movies, which you’ve not doubt noticed if you’ve spent more than 30 seconds on the site. We do weekly podcasts where we roundtable and discuss a wide range of films, and we think it’s about time that we get the readers more involved and start up our very own film club, where we all watch the same film and discuss our thoughts and feelings about said film. Plus trivia. Everyone loves trivia!
So why play along with us in this venture? What makes us special? Well, we have a hook, duh.
As many of you out there have probably done, we enjoy playing the “degrees of” game when picking out movies to watch. Similar to the popular Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon theory, we think that it will be fun to pick a random actor or crew member from the current week’s film to pick the film for the following week. This will keep things fresh and interesting, as it should take us cross genre and through time in an amazing trip of cinematic hiiiiiistory! Muahahah.
So let’s boil down the rules:
- We will start with Rainn Wilson. Why, you may ask? Cause we like Rainn Wilson and we get to pick.
- We will be doing two (2) films per month, so keep an eye out for the posts every other Sunday. This gives everyone time to watch the film and get some discussion going.
- Subsequent films will be chosen by randomly selecting a cast or crew member from the current week’s film, and then picking a random film that they have worked on.
- Any time we land on Rainn Wilson or any other person for a second time or more, it is considered a critical hit, and we’ll do a giveaway or something fun like that.
- Everyone is invited to join along with us! Tell your friends and family!
So without further adieu, let’s take a look at the first film, Super!
6.8 on IMDB.
49% on Rotten Tomatoes.
