Topic: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012
Ah, most likely the last Movie Night before HorrorFest 2012. There are some differences this time (I'm doing an experiment due to requests), so make sure to at least skim the bold parts.
HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror
Skype convo name- HM Movie Night #15 - Comedy Horror
Date: Saturday, July 28th, 2012
Movies & Times (US Eastern/Euro GMT time):
See below for explanation of the odd times
5PM/10PM - Shaun of the Dead (2004) (IMDB link).
10PM/3AM - Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2010) (IMDB link).
Midnight/5AM - Either re-run Shaun or audience pick. Regulars know how this goes.
THE REASON FOR THOSE ODD TIMES is that some people have requested some extra time between films to discuss the film in various aspects. Such as plot, dialogue, cinematography, etc. This is an experiment, so we'll see how it goes.
How we do this:
We use Skype (free) in text and voice chat mode. We can't handle full video chat. Also, it's helpful if you have a microphone separate from your speaker, earphones, or a full headset- t's not fun listening to feedback loops or someone piping their movie directly into a mic. If there is a problem and you don't fix it, I'll kick you from the convo.
For new people, after you register a Skype account, go to the "Register your Skype name" thread and post it. It would also be useful if you PM me on HM and/or send a 'Contact Request' via Skype to azathoth1945 BEFORE the 28th. If you try to get in for the first time during the Movie Night, you'll have problems. And sorry, I'm not rebooting the entire conversation in the middle. Downloading & installing Skype, registering a name, and posting/letting me know shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes.
I set up the initial conversation on Skype, and invite the regulars so they will automatically be called in. New or less frequent attendees I may have to call in after they log into Skype, but that is no big deal.
Other important stuff:
This will be a RECORDED EVENT, so behave your manners. This will be put up for podcast later, so you have been warned, and if you don't want that don't talk (Text is not recorded). Now this is an adult event, so I'm not asking anything special. Just no bashing of other people on the convo, no discussion of your Tuesday "pig love" night, etc. Basically, follow HM's rules, especially #1- Respect.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to post them here or PM me. I hope for a nice turnout this time; a bunch of movies that have the action and humor to keep the talking going.
Hope to see you there!
