Welcome to the GTZ Movie Club!


The Skinny:
It's the same deal as a book club. I'm thinking we choose a movie every week and those who agree to participate make it their beezewax to watch the movie at their leisure within that week, then come here to analyze and discuss it.

Choosing a Movie:
We'll function in 1 week intervals - from a Monday to a Sunday. Every participant in the movie club, going in the order of sign-ups, will post a positive and negative poll consisting of 2 movies (that are hopefully easy enough to track down via Netflix or other streaming sites). Each participant would then vote for a movie using the classic GTZ scoring system, and I'll post the official tally every Monday night. From that point on, everyone will have a week to watch the winning movie and post whatever you'd like to say about it.

Reason:
To continue the already-entertaining film discussion here among the GTZ loyal and maybe even discover some flicks we'd enjoy, but would have never bothered to watch otherwise. And/or torture those who suddenly find themselves obligated to watch a movie they know they'll hate.



Current Movie:

Naaaw no worries about missing here and there, just do your best to participate.

I'm just hoping people don't get "too busy" every time a movie they have no interest in gets chosen. I imagine half the fun of this will be to read the opinions from folks who wouldn't bother with a movie otherwise.

@ENIX I want you in on this.

I'm thinking movie voting will be pretty much exactly this, but on Monday instead of Sunday. That way, come the second week, everyone will still have a full weekend to watch the movie if they haven't already yet. We have more than 5 now, so I'll post the first poll this Monday yes

I'll throw you on the list anyhow. At the very least, try to vote on the movie whenever there's a poll.

Just realized it's been 11 years since I've set foot in a theater. This was the last movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0416449/ . The newest movie I've seen is http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2404435/?ref_=nv_sr_1

I need to watch more movies. In the last week I managed to finally watch Jaws and Gremlins for the 1st time.

So it's gonna go in order of those who signed up. On the monday after the 2-week period for the previous movie, the next person will post a positive or negative poll with 2 movie choices. We'll use the scoring system to vote, and I'll post the official tally that night. So then everyone has from tuesday to the second Sunday to watch the movie.

What do you mean? No movies will be known in advance. This Monday I'll post the first poll, everyone will vote on a movie, and then we'll have 2 weeks to watch the movie. After the 2 week viewing/discussion period, the next person on the list (in this case, Tad) posts a poll of two movies. 2 more weeks, the next person, and so on. So no movies will be chosen in advance, we'll only know the 2 choices for a day and then the actual movie by the end of that day.

Oof true, I hadn't even thought of that. I guess I'll close sign-ups now in that case. Think I might have already added a few too many, considering haha

@ing the club - Prime brought up a good point that with so many members, it'll take quite some time for the rotation to reset. So with so many members, I ask this: should we reduce the viewing/discussion time to 1 week instead of 2?

I wanted 2 ideally to give everyone ample time to watch and talk, though I do feel like 1 week wouldn't bee too much to ask. That said, I understand not everyone would be able to fit the movie club movie into a week. So we can either...

A) Keep it to 2 weeks per movie, though voting for this option means that you're okay with a longer wait before it becomes your turn again.
B) Change it to 1 week per movie, allowing the rotation to move faster, though voting for this option means that you're okay with the idea of making it your beezewax to watch the Club movie within the 1 week.

My bad for letting the club list get so long, so this is on me. But I ask you all, the club members, to help decide the course of action. yes

I was wondering about the streaming thing too. I had decided I wasn't going to sign up unless I was willing to rent some movies. You can rent a LOT of movies on Youtube for around 2.99-4.99 depending on how new the title is, etc. That's what I had planned to do if the movies couldn't be found on the streaming services I pay for.

I won't make it mandatory or anything, but I do think it'd be nice of folks to give suggestions for where to stream/find the movies they offer up in their initial poll post.I personally won't have any issue tracking them down, I have my bases covered haha, but for others it'd be a nice touch to get some idea as to where they can watch.

Sleepaway Camp was a Friday the 13th clone with a major twist. I'm pretty sure it is a cult classic.

I vote for 1 a week. My only streaming service is Netflix, and I have Comcast (which has a ton of free options as well). And even though I'm voting for 1 movie a week, I'm sure there will be times when I can't commit.

Again, part of the fun is watching movies you usually wouldn't - that's pretty much the whole point. If a b movie wins the poll, a b movie wins the poll. Some of them are fun and entertaining because of their crappy campiness.

That said, people should offer up 2 vastly different movies for their poll options so it's not just 2 random movies from bygone dildo years past, with at least one being a little more accessible for a wider audience.
