Oh my, it's been awhile! Unfortunately, we had some technical difficulties at our last movie night, which put showings on an indefinite hiatus. Luckily, I've found a solution that should require no extra effort on your part so we can continue with Movie Night. Now as this is somewhat late notice, the decision period will be rather short, a week to be precise. So get your proposals in and vote on them by June 2, I'll make the decision then.

Vote on the scheduling here, that decision will be finalized on June 2 as well.


The votes are in, and a date has been set! Please see this answer for details.

  • Is there a theme? Also, you might want to check out our history of film nights (and the posts linked to it), ust in case. – Gallifreyan May 30 '17 at 19:52
  • @Gallifreyan, we don't generally have a theme. Just a random assortment of whatever someone wants to see. – Dragonrage May 30 '17 at 23:08

    If this gets picked, I expect a comment under the announcement along the lines of "What can I say except you're welcome" – GodEmperorDune May 30 '17 at 23:34
  • We should try and consider the coconut before picking this movie. – Ave May 31 '17 at 18:06

Suggestion: Watchmen


Poster source

The film an adaptation of the eponymous graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.


Source: DC Comics

The film is set in the third term of Richard Nixon's presidency, and the Cold War is still on. Watchmen are a group of costumed vigilantes who, each with different motivations, fight crime, usually on street level.

In an alternate 1985 America, costumed superheroes are part of everyday life. When one of his former comrades is murdered, masked vigilante Rorschach uncovers a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his retired associates, only one of which has true powers, Rorschach glimpses a far-reaching conspiracy involving their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the world's future.
From the Google blurb

The graphic novel, as well as the film, is notable for its depiction of anti-heroes, as opposed to superheroes.

IMDB 7.6 | Rotten Tomatoes 65% | Trailer | Other trailer | Content Advisory: Google Play said 7+, but IMDB says R, for lots of gore, violence, and some sex scenes. I imagine the theatrical cut is less adult than the extended cut, but still.

Movie Decision

Moana

Date: June 10, 2017 at 7:00 PM UTC-0.

The movie room should be open roughly 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time. At 7:00 PM, I'll do a quick attendance and the movie will begin shortly.

  • Would you mind editing this info into the question post (or linking to this answer)? I didn't realize until just now a date was set, even though I checked the thread daily. – Mage Xy Jun 6 '17 at 16:04
  • Actually I guess I could do that myself, never mind :P – Mage Xy Jun 6 '17 at 16:06
