Interest in a Film Club

Post by Rick » Thu Apr 20, 2017 1:38 am

The Film Club – think book club, but for films – is a new project I’m trying to get off the ground where we, the forum members, watch a movie a week, maybe bi-weekly, and then discuss it.

Here at the forum we have a spectrum of personalities, likes and dislikes, ideals, and beliefs that would make discussing a film as a group fun but also an intellectual experience where we can see the perspective of someone else who doesn’t exactly think along the lines we do, opening us up to a whole new angle we hadn’t thought about on any given film. Or just talk about how you liked the explosions in 3 Fast 3 Furious: Gotta go fast.

So my proposal is to pick a film on a weekly basis, maybe bi-weekly, everyone watch it on their own time, and then we meet back here to discuss it. What we liked, what we didn’t like, what did he mean by rosebud, all that good stuff that makes an intellectual discussion fun and exciting. Of course, we would have to pick films that are readily available and everyone could watch, from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or older films already in the public domain, which holds quite a lot of classic gems. Maybe on special occasions we could pick one in theaters to go see and discuss.

So anyone interested in something like that?

I would definitely be up for that. :smile:

Guessing UK'ers will be in the minority so will be a bit dependent on what's available on the UK equivalents of streaming sites but I'll definitely get involved when you're discussing films I can get easy access to. :smile:

Same here. Definitely depends on what's obtainable over here.

I'm up for this. I think I need to expand my horizons beyond Romcoms, Disney and currently most children's movies! I'd be restricted to whatever is available in the UK too though but I have access to most paid streaming suppliers, I just need to learn to take more advantage of them.
