Here is how this will go. We will have a movie of the week and then discuss our reactions/thoughts. Discuss concepts and whatever is tied to what we watched.
We will have a weekly poll to decide the film for the week to watch.
If you like what this thread is doing and are a lover of the cinema… There is a thread game about guessing what specific movies are.
[Thread Game] Guess That Movie or TV Show(non-anime) - Arts & Media / Anime, Movies, Video, & TV - Level1Techs Forums
So instead of doing a watch party for everyone. We will watch independently. If you are able to do a watch party with someone. That works to. But the point is to watch the film and have your thoughts on it posted here.
Movie poll for Week of 8 - 8 - 2021
King Kong (2005)
Thin Red Line
The Deer Hunter
Atm, I tried selection a random assortment of movies to vote on. I would like to include weekly genres,. .e. supernatural, horror, scifi, gritty crime, etc.
I already have The Deer Hunter, but haven’t watched it, yet. This is also a good reason to start watching movies more regularly again!
Yea I bought the deer hunter on the suggestion by my parents. They went to see it in theaters for their first date.
Is this just a watch party? Just the host needs the movie?
Or like co-ordinated where we each have a copy, and watch In synchronisation?
We each watch the movie on our own and discuss it here when we are done, at least this is how I understood it. Watching it together will be a problem with people being in vastly different timezones, on different continents and many people having to be at jobs during the day.
This is how it will go. If you want to do a watch party with someone feel free. But mainly it is just watch and share your thoughts.
Yes please… May we do this? Yes please…
I cant tell if you are being sarcastic or not.
Honestly it entirely depends on the movie.
Now I will have a reason to finally watch District 9…
For some movies I can’t bloody shut up… For others I can’t start…
Today is the day to submit your vote! do so before 12:00 EST tonight.
Done. Since my pick isn’t the winner I voted for one of the leaders as well…
District 9 it is! Watch it by this coming Sunday (8-15-2021) @ midnight EST and we will discuss. For the week of 8-8-2021 we will be watching district 9.
Here is the following weeks poll.
Film selection for week of 8 - 15 -2021
2001 A Space Odyssey
Tru Grit (1969)
Are we going to discuss here in this thread, And on Discord for those with audio?
Lets put it to a vote?
Where to discuss?
Forum - separate thread for each film
L1 Discord + voip
I am going to say this is the poll thread, we should have a thread separate for each film or have a single discussion thread. Instead of congesting the discussion thread with the voting. This should be the dedicated poll thread.
Here is the District 9 discussion thread.
This is the official District 9 discussion thread. Once you watch it feel free to have discourse here.
Be warned. this will have spoilers of the film!!!
I am in the middle of watching it for the first time since it first came out.
The Movie for the week of 8 -15 -2021 is War Games. It happens to be atleast in the united states free to watch on youtube. THe companion thread will be found bellow.
This is the companion thread to the poll thread for the cinema club. Thoughts and reviews and comments for War Games should be posted here.
Interesting. I haven’t watched this movie since I was a kid… in the 80s… should be interesting to contrast what I remember from then versus what I see now.
It will be interesting to here what you thought. I am going to watch it today. I have been working from 6:30am till bed at around 9 or 10pm. so im wiped out. Will watch and get back to this thread.
