Here we go.




The list is ordered by joining date, pretty straightforward stuff (PM me if you don't plan on uploading thanks). You can pass your turn or give away your spot, etc.

Right now we're doing this on a weekly basis (I'm ok with more than one film a week but I guess people have a life).

Please be careful not to move or delete the file from the shared folder (on the webpage and on the desktop app folder) or it'll get deleted for everyone. Thank you.




How to join


1. If you already have a dropbox account, PM you dropbox email address and I'll add you to the shared folder (as soon as you accept the invite, the folder will appear on your dropbox too)


2. If you don't have a dropbox account yet, PM me an email address (ideally the one you will use to set up your dropbox account) and I'll send you an invite to dropbox (if you use the invite to sign up, we get referral bonus space, which can come in handy if people want to upload files bigger than 2GB)





How it works


1. There's a list with your name on it. One name = one week = one movie.


2. When it's your turn, upload your file to the shared folder. Once a file is in the shared folder, we all have access to it.
To upload a file, simply drag and drop the file in the shared folder via the desktop app (= dropbox folder on your hard drive) and wait. Or you can use the upload button on the dropbox website (there's a 300MB cap though so you'll probably have to use the desktop app for most files).


3. It's fine if you're too busy to upload, just let me know beforehand so we can plan accordingly.


4. Nothing is off limits. Has to be watchable.


5. Don't upload crazy huge HD files.


6. If you upload a foreign movie, don't forget subtitles

[VIDEO][/VIDEO]If we are uploading movie files to Dropbox, that makes it a lot easier for me to access the stuff. Uploading works okay as well as I can definitely source most of the movies I would want to share around. Will send a PM about karagarga as well just for the sake of exploring all options.

This should be fun. Should give me an excuse to catch up on Herzog :D.

So, who goes first?

Also, I presume animation is allowed?

Two things: I don't know how capably I can stick to a weekly schedule, and I'm not sure exactly how to upload/share feature-length films over the internet. However, I'd certainly like to participate if those two disclaimers wouldn't disqualify me from joining y'all.

You can't watch a movie/week?

I'm woefully behind on a senior honors thesis about Wallace Stevens, Theodor Adorno, and Jacques Lacan—or, in other words, some of the more confusing shit I'll ever have to read in my life. That I'm even posting 3-5 times a day on SF is probably distracting enough as far as internet/media timesucks go.

This is a bit of hyperbole, but I'm just saying: a couple hours to download/stream a movie and then feel obligated to discuss it would make me feel like I'm cheating my other projects. I guess I'm saying that 'd just like to be able to drop in occasionally, if that's alright.

Sounds good ?




Fuuma, I might have a decent copy of Sombre with english subtitles somewhere, if you need one for uploading later...

Just a quick, informal survey: What sort of things are people interested in watching at this early juncture? If there's a lot of interest in something in particular, I'll try to take that into account when I choose a film.

can you join in in this thread?

am re-thinking what i said earlier and would also like to join to if it's still open. i can definitely spend a few hours a week watching a movie (even better if it's french since i need to practice) and i'm all right with waiting a long time to share my choice.
