While Douglas Trumbull might not be a household name, his work certainly was pioneering. He supervised the VFX on classic films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and Blade Runner. He even directed one of my personal favorites, Silent Running.
Arguably, he’s the man who invented “Starship Porn”.
It’s do-or-die time, gang. Are you ready for Suicide Squad Trivia? This week, we’ve got thirty questions about those anti-heroes who just want to shave some time off their exceptionally long prison sentences.
This will be our last comic book trivia episode for the season, so drink it in and enjoy it. Season Four is just around the corner.
Trivia. Trivia is what brings us together today. Princess Bride Trivia, to be exact. We’ve got thirty questions from that fantasy classic. You know it, you love it. Let’s do this.
We could use your help with ratings. Podchaser and Apple Podcasts (formerly iTunes) have places where you can leave reviews for the shows you like. Please take a second and leave a review. It’s a huge help in boosting us. (Along with sharing the show with your trivia-loving friends).
Our second episode of 2022 and we’ve got another author episode with Michael Crichton Trivia. The Jurassic Park author wrote a ton of books, created numerous screenplays, and even directed films. How well do you know his works? Let’s test those trivia skills.
Congrats! You made it to 2022! Let’s celebrate with donuts! This week, we’re kicking off the year with The Simpsons Trivia. That venerable animated family has been with us since 1989 and has been on the air longer than any single animated series in American TV history. So, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover.
This week’s episode more than meets the eye. Well, actually, just the subject matter. Otherwise it’s just another thirty trivia questions and this week, we’re tackling Transformers Trivia.
This is our last episode of 2021, so I want to wish everyone out there a safe and happy New Year. This year wasn’t the one we had hoped for, so here’s to 2022 being better. If you haven’t gotten your booster shot yet, go get one. It’s the best thing we “regular Joes and Janes” can do to push back the pandemic.
And hats off to doctors, nurses, and everyone else out there keeping us safe, healthy, and fed. A double-Happy New Year to you!
The Arrival and Dune director will tackle one of the longest-gestating films in the genre, Arthur C Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama. Morgan Freeman has been trying to get a movie made for a very long time and is still attached as a Producer.
If you haven’t read the classic yet, I highly recommend it. But beware of books purporting to be sequels. These are lies. Rama stands alone as a singular novel and needs nothing else.
