I have access to Netflix, Amazon, and HBO. I'm not opposed to watching or re-watching popcorn movies, but it'd be fun to review some serious cinema since we're figuring out what this will be. The question is how will we nominate? The AFI top 100? A rotation of user picks?

I'm interested, but I have not submitted an answer to your pole. It will only let me select one option for #3.

That I am not sure. We certainly could rotate members choice, have nominees and let us vote, have some kind of theme set-up so the movies have a relationship to something relevant.

Love me some movies

I just watched Miami vice.   2006.  Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx.   I never saw it before.   Absolutely terrible and am glad I never watched it previously

I'm interested, but have been completely slammed at work for a couple months (with another month more of slammedness at least)... so, hard to think straight.

 

we have HBO (for now), Amazon and Netflix. 

I'm down for any/all eras. 

I voted 1/month, mostly because I'm slammed and because I'll probably have to watch these late at night after the wife goes to bed.

Will there be a "Rush-documentary" category?  

ETA:  If so, definitely in.

@Ilov80s, you need to tweak the Services question. I have none of them. Maybe “other”?

I'm in, and up for most everything.

I wouldn't mind some of the longer (3+ hour) epic movies that I keep pushing off.  It may take me a few nights to watch, but some group discussion would commit me to it.

Like I posted in the other thread- I kinda like the idea of a double feature that is tied in somehow - whether its something simple like same director, genre, year, actor, or getting more creative.

Ofcourse anyone would be invited to chime in or pick which movies they participate in.

Toughest part will be just finding movies that meet some dual criteria and are available for everyone that month.

Honestly, it's going to be tough to find good options if we are mostly doing streaming.  Most of the services absolutely blow for movies pre-1985.

Yeah but Netflix seems to switch the older movies up a bit. Amazon Prime has an interesting collection. The best is obviously just TCM, but maybe we have chord cutters who don’t have it?

One way to nominate: each person has one decade per film. So you get to nominate one film from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, etc.

I am a cord cutter, but I cheat. I use my 80 and 84 yo parents cable account to stream at my house. They don;t even know how to stream, so I am not really increasing the bandwidth.

I never advocate for cheating, but options are available at present to those who have cut the cord.

Lots of these are built for sharing as you can often have up to 6 log-ins at a time. My friends and I share services. We have Hulu, someone else has Netflix and another couple has HBO. We all share accounts.

Yeah, the last I read on this, I came away thinking that if the services really wanted to prevent this, it would be pretty easy.

I have no idea if that is true, but I do know they don't seem too concerned at present.

Not trying to be a ####, but I am honestly curious since I seem to have little luck finding stuff on Netflix/AP/Hulu to watch movie-wise : what are ilov80s and others finding on those services to watch? 

Off the top of my head, I think I have Network, African Queen? Not many in my queue i would consider movie club-worthy.

I just pulled up my Netflix - on page one (I hate the way Netflix organizes)

Lincoln, The King's Speech, The Imitation Game, No Country For Old Men, Clockwork Orange, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, All The President's Men, Gran Torino, ...

That is just the one "line" I scrolled through. Are these "club level"?

How about Castle Keep with Burt Lancaster? It’s kind of a weird movie.

I am guessing when loading my queues, I am mostly skipping stuff I've seen which is all but 2 from those two lists.  Not that I am against rewatches and discussing those.  

I would say those are "club worthy", but not digging too deep.   Maybe I'm wrong, but figure most in here have seen the likes of Monty Python, Apocalypse Now, NCFOM, etc.
