Just posting this before I’m off to bed, so more details and discussion tomorrow, but I was thinking a lot about this earlier today. Now that we’re all more or less stuck in our homes and doing social distancing and whatnot, how about an online film club? The idea is that we watch films together online and discuss them in real time and afterwards.
We’ll agree on some ground rules but I think it’d be good if we vote on films, maybe limited to what’s on Netflix as most people have that already?? Open to suggestions here. We’ll find a way of narrowing it down to a shortlist that will fit in a poll each time. And then we could maybe do live comments in a thread on here? I’ve tried Netflix party but 1) it’s a Chrome extension and some people don’t use Chrome, and 2) it really only works on a laptop. If we have a thread on here for comments and discussion, we can all watch the film on our tv sets or whatever, and keep our phones or laptops open for the other stuff. Seeing as I’m keen on doing live chat/comments during the film, I’m thinking to keep the film choices fairly light-hearted so that chatting along doesn’t take too much away from it.
What do you think?
- Great idea, wr! I’m in! (* Not legally binding)
- Idk, maybe, maybe not
- I definitely don’t want to be a part of this but I want to click on a poll
