The Moderators have been discussing opening up old film discussions to let new members give their take on some of the old threads, and to let anyone else weigh in with any new thoughts.  The goal would ultimately be to have every Eastwood movie have its own “discussion” and keep them fresh and alternating, but still keep the old ones there for reference as we have until now.   

We also have concluded that we would let any interested volunteers who may want to help out in creating the new discussions have a crack at tackling a few threads of their own.  If the new discussion is of a movie you’re a big fan of, you may want to be involved in participating in the creation of the new discussion.  If no one is interested, no big deal, the Moderators can still handle it.  We just thought it would be nice for anyone who would like to be involved to have a chance to do so.  You can refer back to some of the previous film discussion threads to get the gist of how we formulate the question threads.

Another thought was to have the film discussions, if possible, correspond with Movie Nights.  This might spark some interest in the old discussions and possibly lure people who are “lurkers” on Movie Nights into jumping in and participating.         

So our idea is, once the movie for Movie Night is chosen, if there is an old “previous film discussion” for it, we would unlock it and move it up to the “current film discussion” and let it ride for a month or so. If the Movie Night movie is one we haven’t yet had a discussion for, we would make an effort to set one up in time for the Movie Night, though that might not always be possible.

We’ve decided that our next movie discussion will be The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.  It would be nice to have this up and running before the actual Movie Night (now planned for early January), so if there is anyone interested in taking on a thread or two, please let any of the Moderators know.

Does this mean there would be one thread per film?  (Rather than 15 to 20 topics)

No, the discussions will be set out just like they always have been.

The film discussion for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is now open.

The Moderators would like to thank Southern Cat for his contributions to the preparation of the discussion questions. He also shared the duty of posting the questions with the Schofield Kid, D'Ambrosia and myself. As a reminder, the discussion questions are the result of collaboration among the team that prepares them, so regardless of who posted a particular question, it can be considered the work of all the Film Discussion team members. Up till now, the team has consisted of the Moderators, but Brendan wasn't available this time around, so we were especially glad to have some help from someone who isn't a Mod.

Of course a lot of the credit for the basic format and form of the questions goes to our prior Moderators, Matt and mgk!

The Enforcer discussion questions will remain open until the next discussion is posted.

Never saw a movie discussion lasts so little! Even The Enforcer had more replies and in all the topics than
this one.

Now, are we moving to Dirty Harry already?! So unfair to a great movie like GBU >:(

No, no, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly will still stay up for quite a while. We're just adding Dirty Harry because of the upcoming Movie Night. That's why we asked Cal for a new Forum.

The Dirty Harry Film Discussion will be closing at the end of next week. Those threads will be locked. The Absolute Power film discussion will move to Previous Film Discussions Forum and remain open for replies while the movie night film for December, High Plains Drifter will replace it.

If anybody has anything more to add to the Dirty Harry Discussion, time is running out. :)

The Dirty Harry Film Discussion has now closed. The Absolute Power Film Discussion is still open in our Previous Film Discussion Forum and the High Plains Drifter Film Discussion has now reopened in our Movie Night Discussion Forum.

Looking at the list of films we want to see on our movie nights, the next 8 films have had previous discussions about them so it looks like 2011 will be a busy year for our Movie Night Discussion Forum with a different film discussion being reopened each month.
