  1. 1. How are we going to do this?

    • We take it on turns to nominate five films, then we vote on which one we'll watch.
    • A film a decade from 1910-2010
    • A-Z film
    • A different genre every week.
    • Take in turns to nominate a director, or actor, and everyone has to watch one film of theirs.
    • 10 films from 10 different countries.
    • Other

Okay, so there seems to be as much interest in film as ever right now. I ran one of these back a couple of months back and it was quite good until I stopped doing it. My schedule isn't crazy at the moment, so I could definitely do some sort of EWB watch-a-long thing.

But how would people wanna do it? The same as last time where one member picks 5 films and then we vote? Or should we do some kind of theme, like a film a decade, or A-Z. Kind of open to suggestions but I think it'd be good fun to get this going again, even if there's only like 3-5 of us.

I can't guarantee I'll be free, but if I am I'll join in. :-)

I went with actor/actress/director too. It'll make it easier for peeps to get ahold of stuff and, as JCB said, we can give reviews on multiple films at the same time.

That said, all of the choices have merit and seem fine :)
