Topic: HM Movie Night #5- Drive-In Night Official Announcement
Movie Night #5- 'Drive-In Night' will be Saturday, June 18th, 2011, at 7PM US Eastern time.
The movies will be 'Bubba's Chili Parlor' and 'The Giant Gila Monster,' picks courtesy of FloridaPossum (and her barking hamsters). Most likely there will be an afterparty following the movies. Anything goes there, and I only tape that if we actually watch another movie.
Also, both movies have drive-in style ads inserted into them, so don't freak out when you see a talking popcorn box telling you to go to the snack bar.
We will be using Skype again. If you are new to Movie Night, feel free to ask questions here or PM me. Make sure you register your Skype name so we don't ignore you. You can also send me an Instant Message on Movie Night saying "Hi, I'm <HM name here>. Please add me."
The movie discussions will be recorded for future mocking (especially if I fall asleep again). There is a chance I'll be able to overlay the chat on top of the movie, a la MST3K. Depends if I can get all my software working together. Remember, it's being recorded, so be nice!
Which brings me to this- on Saturday, the 11th, around 7PM-ish I will be on Skype to test out the new rig. We (if anyone shows up) will be watching 'Evil Dead' and or 'Evil Dead 2;' movies to be determined that night. Expect interruptions as I fiddle with my software. For new people this would be a good time to hop on and ask questions.
As for the movies, FloridaBarkingPossum has some links/instructions:
For "Gila Monster'-
If you go down to "Terror Triple Feature", you can click on it and download it It actually has three movies in it, but I thought we would just start with "The Giant Gila Monster". Then we have two left over movies for another time.
I have also put up copies of the movie for you to view on Movie Night. I re-encoded 'Bubba's' into an .avi file since I was having problems with Possum's Flash file:
And if you can't follow HamsterPossum's instructions above, a direct link to 'Gila Monster':
Note that the 'Gila Monster' file actually has 3 movies. 'Gila' is 1st, 'Killer Shrews' is 2nd, and 'Attack of the Giant Leeches' is 3rd. Don't know about you, but 'Killer Shrews' seems like a nice afterparty background.
Post questions here in this thread; there are at least 10 people that can help you out if I'm busy.
I look forward to the test subjects in 3 days, and hope we have an expanded audience in 1.5 weeks!
(PS- Love ya Possum, all in jest)
