Time to binge some “classic” Science Fiction films. This week, we’re diving into the unique and wonderful sci-fi films of the 1970’s. Both good and bad, they are fun movies to watch. So dive into thirty questions from 70s Sci-Fi Movie Trivia.
Test your knowledge and, if you miss a few, at least you have some new movies to watch on Netflix. Seriously, check them out.
Also, we’re looking for listener feedback. Please take a moment to fill out our Listener Survey to help us improve the show. It’s just a few questions and it’ll take less time than listening to 70s Sci-fi Movie Trivia.

Who’s ready to dive into the era of Nixon, Carter, and some truly unique science fiction films?
Hey there gang, I’m Brian Rollins and this is the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. Every week, we bring you thirty trivia questions on a different topic. This week, it’s the Sci-Fi films of the 1970’s. I grew up in the 80’s watching a lot of these on marathons during the weekend. It was a dark time before cable and streaming services. But, we made due with what we had.
Like always, there are three rounds of ten questions each. I’ll give you a five second timer after reading the question for you to answer. Then I’ll give you the answer. If you want some scoring rules, you can visit our website at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com. You can also find past episodes and quizzes as well.
I think that covers everything, so let’s get started.
The Dorky Round
3. While the 2004 remake starring Matthew Broderick and Nicole Kidman was a comedy, the original 1975 version of what movie was much more serious?
6. Even though he plays the title character, Christopher Reeve received third billing in what 1978 movie?
8. What 1979 film featured Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins, Ernest Borgnine and some very dubious astrophysics?
9. What actor didn't actually audition for his role in Mad Max, but was, instead, going along to support his sister?
10. After seeing the premiere of what 1979 film, William Shatner said 'Well, that's it. We gave it our best shot, it wasn't good, and it will never happen again.'
The Geeky Round
2. Yul Brynner's character in what movie would serve as inspiration for both Michael Myers and The Terminator?
The Nerdy Round
And that’s it for this week. If there were questions you didn’t know or movies you haven’t seen, be sure to surf around your streaming services to find them. They might not all be great, but they’re definitely interesting.
We’ll be back again next Wednesday for trivia fun. Speaking of which, here’s your clue:
“What 2007 novel had its title revealed through an online game of hangman?”
While I’ve got you, I do have a quick request. I’ve put up a quick listener survey on our site. Please take a few minutes to zip over and fill it out. I’d really appreciate your feedback in shaping future episodes of the show. You can find the survey at dorkygeekynerdy.com/survey. Thanks!
I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this has been the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. See you next week and thanks for listening.
