I made a graphic and put it in the banner. Wanna give this thing as fair-a-shake at getting some attention as possible.

I'm willing to automate as much as possible out of this if there's any interest. As long as we stick to a pre-defined format for suggestions you can keep posting in this thread and I'll scrape the relevant data for people who want to know what's up but can't dig through an entire thread to find all the entries. After that we can do whatever we want with the data (suggestion numbering, week tracking etc.).

I was thinking about something like this for starters (rough prototype):

I might throw in a simple movie info lookup if I have any free time left wink

What do you think?

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Damn dude, that is so awesome.

Although we probably don't want Attack Of The mutant Cheeseburgers in there. As much as I dearly love that movie, it's probably not right for this.

I've got no control over what goes in there. If it's posted in the correct format it'll get included. This thread is our database.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Alright, it only really affects week 2 anyways.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Week 2:: 7 :: Snail :: They Live

"Life is about movies; anything else is a bonus!"- Me   cool

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Okay, so now there's 7 suggestions for week 2, how do we settle on one?

Have fun with it kids. Keep in mind that my hosting provider is retarded and blocks data fetching if the number of external requests gets too high (hence the subdomain change). So if you click the link and all you get is a jittery spinner followed by nothingness than there's nothing I can do about that atm, sorry. If however you'll manage to get everything working smoothly you can click on movie titles to get some basic info about the films.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Is there any way we could set up a live chat and just watch the chosen movies together? Like "1955 EST everyone get your DVD ready on first frame of whatever and sign on to livechat. At exactly 2000 EST, unpause." For anyone who happens to be available.
Sites like disposablechat.com make such collaboration pretty easy.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

That would be cool. Pretty much impossible for me personally right now though. Pretty much every chance this week where I've been like "okay, now I'm watching Evil Dead" something pops up hmm

So yeah...tonight's the night.

And reminder, I'll be spinning for the new movie tomorrow, so get your suggestions in!

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

I can throw Evil Dead in to refresh my memory, although there was a time that I likely wouldn't have had too.

Week 2:: 8 :: Raven :: Mr. Brooks

Teague Edit:

The chat at fiyh.com/live still works. You could use that.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Guys, this thing is going to die a pretty swift death if no one discusses the movie and just suggests their own...

Extended Edition - 146 - The Rise Of Skywalker
VFX Reel | Twitter | IMDB | Blog

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Wait — I'm confused, are we meant to be discussing the movie yet? The intended timeline and order of events is a bit unclear to me.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

'Tis this:

1. Watch movie.
2. Post thoughts and/or discuss with someone else who has previously posted thoughts on said movie.
3. Add a recommended/curated movie to the list if you have already done 2. Briefly give a reason for that movie if you feel like doing so.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

4. New movie will be picked every Wednesday.
5. Continue to discuss any movie previously watched.
6. Repeat.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Wait, ya, I was confused. I thought we didn't start discussing the movie until the next one is picked, or that there would be separate threads or something. Maybe a time cutoff? So the movie discussion only really begins once the next movie has been picked?

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Well the initial concept was that everything would take place in this thread until we got our feet under us and Teague set up that dedicated forum section for us. However looking at this thread so far it would probably be a good idea to set up separate threads for movies. So I guess I'll do that.

I think probably the sanest way to do this would be to keep this thread for suggestions only, and after you posted your  first comment in the movie thread pop in here and throw down your suggestion.

And yeah, idea was discussion started as soon as the movie was posted.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Alright, there we go. Specific threads will be listed in the first post, and this threads title will continue to be updated with the current movie, and then we'll keep this thread going for suggestions. Okay...


I think this will work...

*backs away slowly*

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Guess I should get my suggestion in...

Week 2 :: 10 :: BigDamnArtist :: Hellraiser (1987)

Just another one I've been meaning to watch.

Re: FIYH Movie Club :: Suggestion Thread

Alright week 2....


Aaaaaand the winner is...

Number 8!

So that'll be Raven with Mr. Brooks!

You have 1 week, new movie next Wednesday!
