The Minnesota-Based Film Geek Central Podcast Is Full of Movie-Loving Passion

The Film Geek Central podcast approaches reviews in a unique way. Created here in Minneapolis, Film Geek Central is currently on episode 14 of reviewing every available film of 1973.

Not only is this podcast enjoyable, but it discusses different aspects that are the foundation for movies. According to the Film Geek Central website, Kennedy...

More to the point, Shatner appeared as himself in a now-infamous sketch set at a clichéd Star Trek fan convention...
