Here's a little something for the Nerd Cave if you're using Kodi (formerly XBMC) with the
Cinema Experience Cinema Vision add-on to run your Home Theater Computer. For those of you who don't know what the Cinema Experience Cinema Vision add-on does, quite simply, it allows you to recreate the actual cinema experience by playing trivia slides, trailers, and public services announcements before the movie starts, just like when you go to the theater.
When Mrs. Th0r and I go out to the movies, one of our favorite things is the trivia that many theaters will play before the actual movie previews start, and after finding the Cinema Experience plugin for our HTPC it has become one of our favorite parts of movie night at home too. There are quite a few places where you can download trivia slides for Kodi for free, and some not so free ones as well.
Well I decided I wanted to add a bit of a personal touch to my library of slides, and made a few of my own based on some of my favorite movie franchises. I've had a bit of fun doing this, and thought that I would share them with anyone else who may be interested. They consist mostly of "Fun Facts" that I was able to find on IMDB (and various other movie sites). The downloads are free (of course) and each one even includes a blank slide, so that you can add some of your own trivia into the mix if you wish.
- X-Men (2000) (357 downloads)
- X2: X-Men United (319 downloads)
- X-Men The Last Stand (304 downloads)
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine (307 downloads)
- X-Men First Class (318 downloads)
- The Wolverine (286 downloads)
- X-Men Days of Future Past (349 downloads)
All you have to do is download them, unzip the files, and add the folder to the directory that already contains the rest of your trivia slides. I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to your feedback.
EDIT: Apparently since my last install of XBMC, Cinema Experience add-on has been replaced with the Cinema Vision add-on.
