Re: [movies-579] More movies at our place?

Hi Lara,

you were on the yes list and I did send out an email to all yes and waiting list members the day before (Monday morning).  You also no-showed for Silver Linings Playbook so technically I'm supposed to boot you from my events...but it seems this is honest confusion so I suppose I can extend an olive branch ;)

If you didn't receive the email on Monday, check your spam folder.  If it went there, make sure to add the email address to your safe list so future emails go to your Inbox.  But in general, if you RSVP yes to an event it's technically your responsibility to keep track of it.  Whether that's writing it on a physical calendar, or Google calendar, or setting up some type of email or cell phone popup reminder....whatever works for you.  

But i do no need to crack down going forward because every time this happens someone else is prevented from coming, including new people i haven't met before which is one of the hopes i had for these events.  Also if people find out I gave someone else a 2nd free pass, they can argue that they should get the same treatment, and i'd really like to avoid a messy cycle of no-shows and arguments.

Thanks for your understanding and i hope to see you again - especially since you seemed to have a good time the last time you were here :)

Dan

Dan, 
I'm clearly still a little confused.  Was I on the list for tonight?
I've been depending on email reminders and the only one I got was the post-movie check in.
Not sure if that is sent to all of us only attendees?
If I was supposed to be there, I'm sorry and will add movies to my calendar in future, rather than rely on meetup emails.
If I wasn't on the list, I still hope you all had a great time.
Yikes!

Take Shelter was great,  I love Michael Shannon.  He has that crazy square face and is perfectly cast as Zod in Man of Steel. 

Chris I'm down for anything you end up showing.  I've heard of some but not all of the ones you mentioned,  and I'm always up for checking out films I haven't yet seen.

So, those that I've run into at recent events have heard me mention that Alyssa and I are looking to host more events at our place. We had an idea for a Before Sunrise/Before Sunset double feature, however, at this point, we have no idea when Before Midnight (which rounds out the trilogy) is going to hit near here (starts in NY/LA on May 24th).

That said, I'm curious what sort of movies folks would be interested in seeing more of. Dan seems to have new US releases fairly well covered, so we probably wouldn't overlap. Folks that have chatted with me for any length of time I'm sure are aware that my wife and I have fairly wide ranging tastes in film.

Would more Hollywood classics be appreciated? Cult classics? More foreign and independent? Documentary features (film related or otherwise)?

The fallback of course, is simply the "films Chris and Alyssa want more people to see" category (ie., great movies that we think are underseen). To give you an idea of what that might look like, these are some films we've done for previous movie nights in the last 6 months or so (for Meetup or otherwise), Take Shelter (2011), Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012), Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2012).

And films we've often talked about wanting to show more people, Chungking Express (1994), M (1931), The Tree of Life (2011), the aforementioned Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2003), Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy [masked]). I could go on, but you probably get the idea.

What do you all think?

PS. Chungking Express in particular, I was thinking might be good for May 31st (if you've seen the film, you should get it, if not, then you'll need to see it) ;)
