Ok, so I know that this a bit on the early side for most of you to be thinking about the summer term - most of you aren’t even back yet from your Christmas hols, but time sleeps for no filmsoc and we need to start thinking about what we’ll be showing in the summer term!
I thought that this might be a good time to start thinking about what we’ll be targetting as potential doubles. Unfortunately we haven’t yet heard any more from the university regarding the refurb, so I can’t say how many we’ll films we need in total, or as doubles, but at the moment, my (ordered by double preference - mainly using the voting pages) list would be:
Alice in Wonderland
Up in the Air
The Lovely Bones
Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Clash of the Titans
Where the Wild Things Are
I think I agree with Gaby about old films. Rob’s list of doubles looks really strong. Plus any classics we add into the schedule will mean losing a newer film. With a reduced schedule we may well end up losing some good new films even before we add any classics.
Based upon last night’s Golden Globe Awards, I’ve added the following films to the voting pages:
[list]The Last Station (McAvoy, Mirren, Plummer and Giamatti)[/list][list]Precious[/list][list]The Blind Side (not likely to do great admittedly, but Sandra Bullock won the best actress globe and is being tipped for other awards too[/list]
Keep an eye out for any other (future) releases that have been missed :!:
Ok, so I’m starting to think about putting together the schedule from the votes that have been cast, in addition to having to work under the constraint that WSC will only have access to L3 for weeks 1-5 of the summer term - from that point onwards there will be the L3 refurb going on, preventing us from doing anything
That taken into consideration, along with the votes, here’s what I was thinking along the lines of running a full schedule for five weeks, with doubles on Fridays and Sundays, normal singles Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and a mixture of midnighters and 7.30pms on Saturdays.
Apologies for the formatting here, i know it’s not the best
Week 1 Sun: Up Tues: Zombieland Wed: St Trinians 2 Thur: An Education Fri: Paranormal Activity Sat(Midnight): The Box
Week 2 Sun: Nine Tues: Where the Wild Things Are Wed: Ponyo [s] Thur: Did You Hear About the Morgans? Fri: Daybreakers Sat(7.30pm): Shaun of the Dead
Week 3 Sun: It’s Complicated Tues: The Book of Eli Wed: The Road Thur: The White Ribbon [s] Fri: Up in the Air Sat(Midnight): Wolfman
Week 4 Sun: Invictus Tues: Departures [s] Wed: Brothers Thur: Valentine’s Day Fri: The Lovely Bones Sat:(7.30pm) Hot Fuzz
Week 5 Sun: Shutter Island Tues: The Crazies Wed: From Paris with Love Thur: Legion Fri: Alice in Wonderland Sat(Midnight): Exam
It’s quite apocalyptic/horror-heavy.
I’d consider more thoughtful stuff like ‘Nowhere Boy’ (9 votes) and/or ‘The Boys are Back’ (5 votes) in place of ‘Legion’ (5 votes) or ‘The Crazies’ (4 votes), for example.
