Summer Idea: Forum ReWatch of George's Movies?

Post by Missa on Thu Jun 05 2014, 19:30

So I follow a few different pop culture websites, like Vulture and the AV Club, and they have a summer tradition of going back to rewatch old television series or films and having discussions about them.  Since there's often the complaint that we talk about George's ladies more than George, I thought it might be fun to do a rewatch of some of his films over the summer, and have discussion threads here to discuss.  I'm thinking we could do one film per week or every two weeks, depending on what people's schedules are like, and maybe do a poll to determine which films to include.  I'd say we should limit it to films post-Batman, both due to quality and availability.  For those who've already seen most of his films, it can be fun to go back with new eyes, and for those who haven't it made it all the way through some of them (*cough* The Good German *cough*), it might be a good time to try again.

Anyone else on board?

Yeah I'm on bard.  Thumbs up! 

I can't believe you didn't make it through The Good German. His German lines he had in the movie were funny. I would like to ask him how long it took for him until he could pronounce it like an English would do hehehe. I liked the movie. 

I'm not sure if I saw the movie "confessions of a dangerous mind" until the end. Didn't like it much, felt bored. 

I watched the american around two weeks ago  Laughing I think I need to watch up in the air again  Yahooooo

The Good German frustrates me so much!  The book is amazing, and has like 5 different great movies in it, but then Soderbergh had to get ARTY with it.  ARGH!  I'll save the rest of my comment for if and when we rewatch it.  Smile

Good idea Missa....do you mean like a weekly book club meeting ?

Are you going to be the President and set the Film for The Week and have a week to watch it and all meet here to discuss.....or a casual chat as and when someone's watched it ?
Oh that could spoil it for the ones who haven't seen it then !
Maybe some structure will be needed ?

Would watching the films in chronological order be a good idea or not. What do people think ?

I'll have to fit it all in with my sport viewing this 
summer......World Cup football and Wimbledon tennis 
fortnight too !   YAY !

I SO agree! And yes, I love the idea of doing a group re-watch of George's films.

Yes, I was thinking of a book-club type structure.  I think there should be a film assigned to each week so we're all on the same page.  I'm thinking we could start the discussion threads on a Monday, and people could either watch the film prior to Monday of sometime during that week.  I'm happy to take responsibility for making sure there's a discussion thread posted, so we're all chatting in the same place.  

There are about 11 weeks left in the summer, and I count 25 films since Batman where he has a significant role, leaving out things like "Spy Kids" and "Welcome to Collinwood".  I'm thinking I could set up a poll with all 25, and then the top 11 will make the cut?  Then assigned weekly in random order?  Would that work, or are there other suggestions?  Oh, and I would like to set the schedule of movies ahead of time, in case people need to arrange to rent or borrow the films.

Brilliant idea Missa ! Love the Poll idea.

Can I just add a thought ? I've always meant to watch 
George's films in chronological order simply to observe 
his improvement in his aciting....
or otherwise of course. LOL 

Maybe that could be added to your poll...
Random Order or Chronological Order ?
What do you think ?

Nite nite.

Good idea, Joanna. 

Now if someone could just give me a hint about how to do a poll? I looked in the How To section of the forum but didn't see it.

I'm in, too, as long as we know ahead of time so we can get hold of the movie.

Would it make things easier if the discussions just went on in the movie threads already on the forum?

Hi Missa
I can set up the Poll for you, will do that when I return from picking up kids in about 1.5 hours if that's okay.

So you'd like all of Georges movies since Batman, and then a choice between chronological order or random, have I got that right?

Are we including all the Oceans movies? assuming we are.

OK I added the poll, let me know if I made a mistake with the list.

Not sure how we wanted to set up the poll. I have set it up now like this that you can do multiple choices. Maybe we can choose first which movies we want to watch at all and then we do another poll which one we watch first or don't do another poll and see who gets the most votes? Let's see.....feedback is always welcome  Very Happy

Looks great Nicky, thanks! I'm thinking everyone can choose the 11 they'd like to watch, and we'll do the top 11 vote getters, if that makes sense to everyone. How about we give it till Sunday afternoon for everyone to vote, and then I can put together a schedule and we can can have the first discussion post for next Monday June 16th? That will give anyone who needs to rent or borrow the first movie some time to do so.

Okay, scratch that. I just  voted and realized how hard it is to pick only 11. So how about we pick all the ones we'd like to include, as many as you want to pick, and then we'll take the top 11.

Yes I liked it. But I must confess at the beginning I thought it was slow but then I started to like it more and more. It was already a while back so I look forward to watch it again. It is in black and white in case somebody has problems with that  Shocked

Okay, here are the winners and the movie schedule.  I plan to have a discussion thread posted by each date.  We did have a four way tie for 11th place, so we may have to do a re-vote to figure out that one.  I put the films in chronological order, since I think it would be interesting to see his skills change over time.

6/16  One Fine Day (1996)
6/23  Out of Sight (1998)
6/30  Three Kings (1999)
7/7    Syriana (2005)
7/14  The Good German (2006)
7/21  Michael Clayton (2007)
7/28  Up in the Air (2009)
8/4    The American (2010)
8/11  The Ides of March (2011)
8/18  The Descendants (2011)

I'm personally relieved there are no Oceans films 
to watch because I think he's outgrown that phase 
in his films.

I wouldn't have minded Oceans 11, but the other two are definitely missable. I think we got a nice mix of old and new.
