Author Topic: Ww Movie Nights Round 2 - AUGUST 17: THE BLUES BROTHERS + MONTY PYTHON  (Read 1824 times)

So, we used to do weekly movie nights back in 2015. I really enjoyed them and wanted them to start up again, and it sounds like a lot of other people felt the same. Therefore, I'm willing to start up movie nights again!
I'll be using Rabbit, which is the same program we were using for movie nights before (assuming that it works right for everyone and all that). I just wanted to get everybody's input on two things:
- What dates/times work for everyone?
- What kind of movies are you guys interested in watching?

If anyone has any other questions/comments/suggestions, feel free to post those too!

Wow, I didn't even know it's been that long...

As far as timing goes, I'm free in the evenings on pretty much any weekday except Wednesday, but that may be iffy for the next month or so because of exams and final projects. As for weekends, I typically do stuff with other friends starting from 8:30pm EST, but I am theoretically free any time before then.

And for movies to watch, one of the first things that comes to mind is Double Down... or any Neil Breen movie, actually.

Beyond that, I could probably come up with a bunch of stuff. Pretty much just a list of my own personal favourites, filtering out anything that wouldn't be particularly fun to watch in a group. Trainspotting, RoboCop, Dark City, In Bruges, and Serial Mom immediately come to mind, but most of those would have to be for an 18+ movie night.

Another possibility is that we could plan nights  around specific themes or genres and then take suggestions based on that.

I'm usually free on every weekday afternoon but Tuesday, and I can't be there on evenings except for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On school holidays I am available on weekday evenings. My weekends are sometimes erratic too.

Also I will be available on Tuesday for the next six weeks but after that I may have problems.

My timezone is AEDT +11:00.

Also, is rabbit voice chat? Because I'd prefer text chat.

It has text, voice, and video, but you have the option of turning off your camera and mic. Typically once the movie started we would use just text chat so we could be quiet and watch.

Dude yes I'd be up for this again : D

Other than classes, my schedule is theoretically open sans Saturday Night DND and 'unscheduled homework doing'. Classes are like... until seven thirty on Tues/Thurs, until four or five on Mon/Wed, and until noon on Fri. This holds until the beginning of May, at which point we'll really just have to see.

Movie suggestions? Princess Bride is a classic. Heck idk I'm mostly good for whatever honestly. If I think of anything else, I'll mention it here.

I love that movie! I'd totally be up for watching that one if I can find a streaming link that'll work.

I'm still trying to figure out the best date/time, but thanks to everyone who's responded so far!
I'm thinking of doing a test stream just to make sure I have the settings for Rabbit set up right, so that might happen this weekend. It'd probably just be YouTube videos and stuff like that; I just want to get any issues figured out before the actual movie nights start.

Okay, so I'm thinking of doing a test stream tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. EST. Not a formal movie night or anything; just want to check and make sure everything's set up right. I'll post a link later, so everyone's welcome to drop by if they're able!

EDIT: Link is here. I'll add the link to the first post later.

Well, no one else showed up for last night's test stream, but it seemed like everything was still working fine. It also helped me come up with some more movie ideas:
  • The Princess Bride (Already mentioned in the thread, seconding the idea)
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • The Blues Brothers
  • RoboCop (Yes, I've already suggested it, but I'm suggesting it again)
  • Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Airplane!

Haven't fully decided on a date/time for the first actual movie night, but as of right now, I'm planning on watching The Princess Bride.

Also, before I forget: we should totally have a movie night at some point to watch National Treasure and Space Jam. It's been too long since I've watched either of those.
