Movie Night

Posted 1 Month ago by Aviatrix

Hey folks! So I previously floated an idea to do a community movie night, which garnered actually quite a bit of interest...







...but very little actual turnout. Would you all be interested in giving it another shot? I think Sunday, January 3rd would be a good night - start at 7:30 PM central so no one is up too late. All you need is a Netflix account to participate! We will watch together using a Netflix party code.

Go ahead and nominate films that are in the Netflix (US) streaming library. On Thursday, Dec. 25th, I will make a Google form poll to vote on the nominated choices.

I nominate 'Snowpiercer'.

I vote snowpiercer unless someone else has something better. There's a possibility I'll be working though so I'm not sure my vote should count :L

How does Netflix Party work? Do you have to have a Netflix account?

I think January 3rd would work for me, so count me in.

I'll leave the nominations up to others though!

@Jet, yes. You use your own account and the site will play everyone's at the same time.

Ah man. I have someone else's Netflix account info on my PS4, but I can't remember whose, so not sure how I would join, ha. But Snowpiercer is a great choice.

Have you used Netflix Party, by the way? How does it seem to hold up with like, lag issues?

I like the idea, but I saw Snowpiercer last summer and didn't like it, sooo....

@Agis So nominate another.

@Jet Yes, I have. No issues with lag at all. Also, if there are only 1-2 people with no netflix creds, I can always share mine.

Is there a chat feature in Party?

@Jet We can use discord to chat! The text channels are there or those who want to can join the voice channels as well.

I'm interested in this, but I'm probably going to be at my friend's house sunday night -- he doesn't have internet. I also seriously doubt that his netflix account still works since hasn't paid anything on it for a year (though it did a few months ago, oddly).

If by some chance I'm not there and netflix also works, I'm again going to nominate Mr. Pig

I might be around. I'm working part-time at the cinema, so there's a chance we might get a rental booked in which case I would work. It's sort of a wild scenario right now with work. But as things stand right now, January 3 is free.

Idk for sure if it's still on netflix but if that thing can still be done to watch even if you don't have netflix and it's there I'd nominate the dc flashpoint animated movie (I don't watch that many movies and a lot are blurs to me so I just picked whatever came to mind)

My recommendations (that are actually on Netflix):

  • 007 Casino Royale - IMO best 007 ever
  • 007 Goldeneye - N64 nostalgia
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2
  • Back to the Future
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  • Bo Burnham: Make Happy
  • The Princess and The Frog
  • Pan's Labyrinth

    This lack of organizer activity was brought to you in part by....

    Depression! Because life's too vibrant without the call of an inescapable void.

    Sorry I dropped the ball on voting. If anyone's on for this, head on over to the Movies and TV section of the Discord and we can figure out what to watch. Link will be provided there.
