Yes, I know, this is the exactly opposite of a sport, but I posted it on my own social group and only one person responded because no one pays attention to it any more, and I don’t want to post it on Mixers because too many people might be interested. So there it is.
I’ve wanted to do a movie night for a long time and, if it goes well, intend to do more. I don’t have the greatest house or TV around, but I’ve got a great surround sound system and central air if it’s hot, and great ventilation if the evening is nice and cool. I also have great taste in movies!
In the future I might ask participants to bring some of their own favorite movies to share and we could decide as a group what to watch. But I’ve got a few in mind that I’ve been itching to watch as a group for a long time. I think each night should include a double feature. This is what I propose for our first night:
The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra—I remember laughing my ass off when I first saw the trailer to this movie back in 2001, but then I forgot about it. It’s a modern movie, but it’s made to look like a terrible low budget horror movie from the 50s. I’ve never seen it, and forgot about it for years, but once it finally came to Netflix steaming, I was overjoyed, and it’s basically the inspiration to this entire series of events.
A Cabin in the Woods—I saw this at the dollar show and was blown away by how clever it was. It’s funny, a bit scary, and smart as hell. It has some great actors and the most original plot I’ve heard of in a long time. I can’t wait to see it again.
We can also talk about what movies we want to see in the future.
While you are under no direct obligation, it would be wonderful of you to bring something to share. Or you can just bring food and drink for yourself. It’s up to you.
I can probably fit 8 people in my living room comfortably, so I’ll limit the even to 10 (always no-shows). If fewer than 5 RSVP by the 10th, I might mention it to others. But right now, it’s a Metro Detroit Social Group exclusive!
