Film Club #36: 🌊 WATERWORLD! (Wednesday 8pm) 🌊

We could arrange to watch the second one if that would help with the outrage?


…the most dangerous beast of them all: man.

:astonished:

That’s why I questioned when I saw it, wasn’t sure if wr put it on Norway time or if the plan is actually to start later

No, 8pm UK time! Whoopsie.

Only one vote?

Yup, I’ve (almost) always done it this way. Can reconsider for next instalment if people prefer having more votes:

  • One vote is fine unless there’s A LOT of options
  • We should always have 2 or 3 votes
  • One vote each no matter what

0 voters

In your absence we’ve always had 2 I think.

Pretty sad to know the greatest* sea based films aren’t on Netflix, TBH. Where are
Jaws
Pirates of the Caribbean
The Abyss
Deep Blue Sea
The Poseidon Adventure
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (it’s all about Moby-Dick and using space like the sea!)
The Hunt for Red October
Crimson Tide
The Meg

*okay, okay, aside from Jaws it’s tenuous, yeah. :smiley:

Waterworld isn’t on norway netflix tbh. Hook is though :wink::wink::wink::wink::wink::wink::wink:

The Reef is actually in with a shout here, so just wanted to add an expanded recommendation - it’s a really tense, realistic shark film, seriously impressive, underrated gem. All real shark footage too!
