Forgotten Flix Weekly Update and Movie Trivia: 01/16/2012

Weird Science (1985)by Joel G. Robertson

We had several great answers to last week’s movie-related question: What’s your favorite multi-genre movie?

Mags and Peter both picked From Dusk to Dawn. They both had different reasons… I assume. Also, Shannon suggested Weirdsville (a movie even I hadn’t heard of and had to look up), and Jay recommended one of my personal faves, Big Trouble in Little China!

And, finally, our pal Will from (a FANTASTIC movie review site) had the same problem I often do, picking just one favorite. But he did make sure to point out what he thought of Zone Troopers. I guess he’ll have to wait until our episode next week (#52, which comes out on 1/25) to hear what Jason and I thought!

Thanks to all of you for playing. And be sure to check out this week’s movie trivia question below!

Movie Question of the Week:

In Weird Science, a group of barbarian, bikers crash Wyatt and Gary’s party. Name two of the actors and the movies in which they previously portrayed a “barbarian”. Extra credit if you can guess which of the two movies is one of my personal favorites!

Be sure to leave your answer in the comments section and I’ll mention you in next week’s post if you get it correct!

Special thanks to Kevin Bachelder of the Tuning Into Sci-Fi TV and Saturday B-Movie Reel Podcasts who suggested we send out a weekly update about the next movie we’re covering.
