That would be 10:00 PM in England. How's that for everyone?

That's 2 PM West Cost time right, that ought to work for me.  Dirty Harry is what we decided on?

Is that 10:00 pm on a weekday, because that could be a little late.

Yup, Chessie, that would be 2:00 PM for you on the west coast. Masterchief, this would be a Sunday night for you if you're in England... around 10:00 PM. Fortunately, Dirty Harry is one of the shorter films, so if we start on time, we'd be done by midnight. Is that acceptable?

Yeah, should be fine. 12:00 not an ideal time to finish, because of school in the morning, but I'll be able to do it, count me in  ;D

Next weekend is a holiday weekend here in the States, so we'll do this two weeks from now.

DATE:  Sunday, December 5th
TIME:   5:00 PM EST (2:00 PM U.S. west coast; 10:00 PM England)
MOVIE: Dirty  Harry
PLACE:  Trivia forum--look for a new thread starting that night

Does anyone have any ideas to make the viewing more fun? I was thinking of drinking (soda, water, shots or beer--viewers choice) to every "punk" "swell" and "lucky".   ;D

Just had a thought... you know what movie would be great for something like this? Play Misty for Me.  :o    

Would that be better, or should we see how Dirty Harry goes, and if it works out maybe do Misty or something else down the road?

Yup. Try to get here a few minutes early to set up the movie, and settle in. What we'll do is put the movie in our DVD drives and set it up and pause it at a predetermined spot until it's time to start the movie. For example, if the opening credits start at 0:00:08, I might post to go to that spot and pause it. We'll go by the board clock at the top of the page:



Refresh the board every few seconds when it's getting close to the top of the hour to keep an eye on the time, and as soon as it's the top of the hour, hit "play". We should all be in sync that way and starting the movie at the same second (or very close to it). As the film is rolling, post as much as you want as the movie's rolling in the thread that we'll have. Keep the posts short, since it would be hard to read paragraphs of text during the movie. :)

Everyone should turn off their cell phones during the movie in case Brendan decides to join us. ;)

Matt, do you ever actually delete a private message?

You got that right. One little noise and I'll loose it on all of you.  >:(

I'm only about 30 or so behind you. Is there a capacity limit to the number of PMs our inboxes will hold?

In regards to the point of this thread... ;) My computer doesn't have a DVD drive (I know, I know, I'm so last century ;)), and our DVD player is in another room than the one the computer is in, so I really can't participate.

You can have 30 of mine. I think I've got at least that many calling me a fascist pr*ck. ;D

If there's a limit, I haven't hit it yet. The messages start to take so long to load when they get over 200 that that's when I usually clear them out.

No thanks, it takes long enough for them to load with 170.
