Joyomama had an interesting idea, so that everyone is ready to discuss a film when I post a review, how about I announce the film a week in advance and give you all time to catch up and watch it or think about it so it is fresh in your mind? I like this idea, I’m not sure it will work, but I think it is worth a try.
Here’s the big problem I see. If you are like me, as soon as you finish a film you will be burbling with thoughts and it will be really really hard to wait until I post my review to share them. But I can’t say “watch it tonight and discuss tomorrow”, because that’s really not enough time for everyone to arrange to see the movie. So, I think “watch it this week and discuss on Monday” might be the way to go. Or something like that.
Oh, and the other problem might be no one is interested/cares. That’s the two reasons I have a question mark in the headline, so you can help me answer the “does anyone care?” question and the “will you still be interested in talking about a film if you watched it days earlier?”
And here’s the other question, what movie should it be?
I took a look at Netflix, and here are 3 movies I haven’t yet reviewed:
- Chennai Express
Place your votes between those three and also give your opinion on this idea in the comments, and depending on what you say, I will announce the film choice sometime this afternoon/evening or early tomorrow morning.
