[quote=“OPR”]Looks good overall. My comments as follows:
Wk 1 - out of curiousity, what of these, if any(?!), do you see as free showings?
Wk 3 - I would swap Fast & Furious and Star Trek.
Wk 4 Sat/Wk 8 Sat - Maybe swap the two horror midnighters as perhaps better to have a classic shown on Halloween as scare-seekers might be busy at parties etc, so people wouldn’t miss out on the new one. Although there’s a counter argument with similar points that says the new one can be afforded to be missed and the classic will draw in many more people on another night… Tricky (or treaty …sorry).
Wk 7 Wed - this is sheer opinion, but I think that I Love You, Man looks better than Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, even though I doubt it’s spectacular. Only that I just read a rather okay review of it in this month’s Empire and am quite the Paul Rudd fan. However, duly noted that otherwise the schedule lacks a typical ‘chick flick’.
Wk 8 Wed - glad you included Religulous
AllNighter - Like it, except I think Outlander looks rather naff - prob not a big step-up in quality, but how about The Land of the Lost instead?
On a more general note, I would suggest that since they were more suggestions than places and some of these are new films, then perhaps remove some classics from the schedule as you have cracked a lot in. In attempt to be constructive…
Switch out Brokeback Mountain, Spirited Away and Gone with the Wind for
—> any of FAQ About Time Travel, Dragonball Evolution, The Black Balloon, The Taking of Pelham 123. Just for starter ideas that were on the suggestions list anyways.[/quote]
The freebies will be up for exec to decide and no doubt there’ll be a few swaps accordingly, though LVK has been so badly reviewed, that i think it could be a good freebie option.
I think Star Trek is a stronger title than F&F, so probably deserves the Friday more on that premise - wish there were a few more artsy films there! What do others think?
Midnighters - i dunno… Exorcist might not have that many prints, so might be a lot easier to get the newer haunting in connecticut?
I agree about the lack of chick flicks - need some suggestions on this front (there weren’t any of merit on the pages thus far!).
Land of the Lost is a possible, but given that Transformers 2 would be the headliner, then a rogen film followed directly by a ferrell would be a bit weird/samey - will need more opinions/discussion.
Cracked in a lot of classics?! :shock: Other than 70mm, there are 6, including a midnighter… Will have to see what other people think, though Black Balloon is a no, due to a lack of UK release. We’ll know how FAQ about time travel is doing within 3 weeks, so can decide then As for Dragonball Evolution - its IMDb rating says it all :?
