So ThatsAFreeThinker left the site, leaving a power vacuum for control of the Movie Club. I decided to be an opportunist, swoop in, and take control for myself (muahahaha).
But, luckily, I'm a democratic kind of guy. So I'm seeking some input on how to continue the Movie Club for the enjoyment of everyone who participates.
FreeThinker ran the club bi-weekly basically, having one post for voting, a later post for declaring the winning movie, and a final post for discussion. The voting was limited to movies that followed a narrow topic selected by FreeThinker.
If everyone just wants to continue from where he left off, that's no problem. Just let me know in the comments.
But if anyone wants a change, that's on the table now, so make yourself heard.
I was thinking about rotating different genres randomly each week, scratching off the ones we've gone through until the whole list of genres has been cycled through. I figured that would allow some diverse movies to pop up and bring up some classics that some maybe haven't seen as well as more modern films.
These are the genres I came up with:
Action/Adventure (can split if wanted)
Also, the random Free Choice day.
I could whittle those down if some are undesired. Or each week I could specify a certain subgenre of the main genre. Or I could just make it randomly selected with the only rule being that a genre has to wait two rounds before coming up for contention again.
I'd plan on keeping a list of crossed-out movies chosen for each genre so they wouldn't be suggested again.
Also looking to know if you guys want the club to be weekly or bi-weekly like before?
I'd probably do the voting posts on Monday, the winning post on Wednesday or Thursday (since I figure the weekend is the best time for everyone), and the discussion the next Friday or Sunday. Rinse, Repeat. If we go to 1 a week, I'll probably do votes on Monday, winner on Wednesday, and discussion either Friday or Sunday (or just have Monday contain both discussion on last week and vote for next).
Also if any new people want to be added to the club, let me know and I'll add you to the tag list.
Let me know what you think everyone. Old rules? New rules? Hybrid? Other suggestions?
