the pc film club.


→ introduction.

Hey everyone! maccrash and myself will be hosting Movie Nights every week where we watch a community-suggested film together and then discuss it in this thread. These Movie Nights will be hosted on our cytu.be page! We'll try to mix up times that we show things so lots of people can participate and get involved.


→ next playing.

Suggest a film you'd like to watch and discuss and we'll choose one at random.

The next movie night will be happening at 10:00am GMT+10, Friday 15th April. Click here to convert that time into your timezone! The first film we'll be watching is 'Mommie Dearest'.


→ recently shown.

This section will be updated when we've shown some films!

Three Colors: Blue (1993) - Krzysztof Kieślowski
Breathless (1960) - Jean-Luc Godard
Persona (1966) - Ingmar Bergman
Fargo (1996) - The Coen Brothers
Ugetsu (1953) - Kenji Mizoguchi

i kept my suggestions all pretty short (none of them reach past two hours) so it'd be easier on those with short attention spans. i want to save the heavy hitters for another time ;)

I love all these except the two I haven't seen, but can you pick just one for Selection's Sake?

→ next playing: 'Mommie Dearest'.

I've done the RNG for this week and we'll be watching 'Mommie Dearest' (1981), submitted by Harley Quinn. Described as a cult classic, it's sure to be a great film to kick off the Film Club.

See you on Friday 15th April, 10:00am GMT+10 on our cytu.be page!

"When her adoptive mother Joan Crawford died in 1977, erstwhile actress/author Christina Crawford and her brother Christopher were left out of Joan Crawford's will, "for reasons which are well known to them." Industryites have suggested that it may have been this posthumous act of rejection rather than an alleged lifetime of parental abuse that inspired Christina Crawford to pen her scathing autobiography Mommie Dearest. The 1981 film version of this tome was evidently meant to be taken seriously, but the operatic direction by Frank Perry and the over-the-top portrayal of Joan Crawford by Faye Dunaway (whose makeup is remarkable) has always seemed to inspire loud laughter whenever and where-ever the film is shown."

I'm so excited for everyone to experience this absolute disaster
I know so much about the backstory and it's just hysterical

Now that I've gotten my way I'll be sure to back down and support everyone else's ideas for the next few movies I just really wanted you all to see this

Hey everyone! See you all in just under 3 hours!

Welp, sorry this didn't go to plan guys - a day full of technical difficulties. (If anyone has any suggestions for more reliable platforms please let us know!)

I encourage you all to 'obtain' the film and give it a watch - I'll leave it to Harley Quinn to kickstart a discussion about it. After talking to a couple people, I've decided to stream 'Mommie Dearest' again next week after I work out these technical issues. Sorry once again!
