RAY LIOTTA’S PRIVATE SELECT

In 2007, Bee Movie released in theaters. This animated comedy film from Jerry Seinfeld is about a talking bee who sues the human race for stealing honey from bees. Jerry also voices the main character, Barry B. Benson.

Nerdy Fact: The movie started out as a joke. Seinfeld was having dinner with his neighbor, Steven Spielberg, when he casually mentioned the idea of making a movie about a bee. Spielberg loved the idea and encouraged Seinfeld to pursue it.

LEGENDS OF ROCK

Also in 2007, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock released in the US. Significant for its massive song library and the first in the series to release on all 3 major systems at the time and feature online multiplayer, Guitar Hero III is a music rhythm video game that lets you play guitar parts of rock songs using a guitar-shaped controller.

Nerdy Fact: One kid set (nearly) all the Guitar Hero records. Danny “Phenom” Johnson was 14 years old when he achieved the longest note streak ever (3,722) and the highest score ever (985,206) on Through The Fire And Flames, one of the hardest songs in the game.

GRIMM
