Like an old lady's book of the month club?



I'm just kidding, sounds like a fantastic idea.

That would be the thing to figure out. Might be the best way. Makes a list with people who want to participate, and have a sort of rotating selection list or something. Probably a lot simpler and resulting in more variety than a voting system or something like that.

Speaking of B-movies, I may have posed this question before, but who here has seen The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension?

The idea is extremely similar.

Voting would fuck the spirit of it up, I think. I agree, simpler and overall better to rotate selections amongst the participants. I like this.

Sounds good.

I think the person nominating the week's film shouldn't have seen it previously, but it's cool if the people watching along have, or something.

What would be the best day/night of the week for watching/discussing afterwards? Friday? Saturday? I'm guessing weekends, yes?

The Warriors is a unique fucking movie. It captures a crazy time in NYC, then exaggerates it immensely, then throws in some some memorable visuals like clowns, a baseball team, and dudes on rollerskates - all try to beat up some dudes form Coney Island that were framed for killing a guy trying to unite the gangs. It's a good friggin movie with goofy dialogue and bad hair.

I saw that in the theatre - haven't seen it since. It is good?

Pretty much.

Nothing tops the surreal nature of "Warriors, come out to play-ay". Fantastic.

Maybe we watch over the weekend and discuss during the week?

Thursday is the best night for me because I have no Friday classes, but I'm sure that day doesn't work for anyone else, so any weekend really.


ETA: what NSW just said is a really good idea
