    Hello!

    I'm wanting to host movie nights for members in the community as a way to get everyone together and do something fun that isn't necessarily video game related.

    So far we're aiming towards movies that fit the "old animes and classics and cyberpunk" theme. Here's our list so far:
    Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade (1999)
    Akira (1988)
    Ghost in the Shell (1995)
    Redline (2009)
    Riding Bean (1989)
    Perfect Blue (1997)
    Terminator (1984)
    Blade Runner (1982)
    Neo Tokyo (1987)
    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
    The Matrix (1999)
    Dune (1984)
    Up (2009)
    Shankshaw Redemption (1994)
    Judge Dredd (1995)
    Oldboy (2003)
    Paprika (2006)
    Princess Mononoke (1997)
    Nausicaa (1984)
    John Wick (2014)
    Toy Story 2 (1999)
    Burning (2018)
    '71 (2014)

    Please feel free to drop any suggestions below, I'll add them in. They don't HAVE to fit the theme, wildcards are always welcome. I'll probably wait until HL2RP is out so we have a chance at getting more members that might join the community and might want to hang out with everyone as well. It'll also give time for me to figure out what the best way of hosting will be and an even better way for me to give everyone any dates in advanced.

    I'll follow up with a poll to see which movie we can all watch first and will do that with every movie once we get a full list.

    e; If anyone suggests a movie that looks objectively horrific and has really bad ratings I MIGHT not add it in.

    How often should these movie nights be hosted? Once every couple of weeks? Once a month? Let me know your suggestions.

    I don't know any of these movies except Terminator. SO this is going to be a stupid suggestion of my pick being Terminator. I also sound retarded in this.

    Added. Also, yeah, I mean the anime version and not the garbage live action one hence the date I have next to it hehe. ;)

    I'll clarify now that the goal is to watch all the movies that get listed over time. Voting will just be a matter as to which ones we watch first.

    Akira, Terminator, and Blade Runner are the ones from the list that I'd like to see.
    As wildcards, I'll suggest my favorite movies: Up and The Shawshank Redemption.

    Not really into this genre, but if you're planning on making this a re-occuring thing, I'd definitely throw in some of my favourite flicks

    I'm trying to juggle a few ideas on how to host this effectively for everyone to watch and have fun. Rabb.it is a platform I'm considering while we all sit in a Discord with forced push-to-talk OR text channel only.

    I've only seen half of Perfect Blue so if you have any specific favorites by Satoshi Kon lemmie know and I'll throw 'er in.

    I plan on this being reoccurring and planned out to keep consistent movie nights so anyone that wants to join, can. If you see a movie that might be up that week and go "wow I want to watch that too," just join at the posted date and times. If you see a movie you don't want to watch, you don't have to join and can wait until the next movie night.

    Also yes, put in your favorites. They don't have to fit the genre.

    What about Oldboy?

    I mean the Korean one, not the American.

    It's such a great movie, mindfuck, but absolutely awesome.

    It's not the same as seeing Stalone yell, "I am the law".

    Neo Tokyo is really good, if a bit avant-garde for most people. I'd love to watch it with y'all.

    I'd also add Princess Mononoke or Nausicaa to the list.

    >:(

    Also, put Annihilation on the list. It's pretty much always on German Netflix, so I can host it easily.
    Doesn't fit the theme, but it's a really good movie.

    Also whoever suggested Redline is now my friend.

    I'm gonna suggest a bunch of wildcards.

    Drive. Fantastic movie.

    Baby Driver. Fantastic movie.

    No Country for Old Men. Haven't seen it.

    Saving Private Ryan. Haven't seen it.

    Hacksaw Ridge. Fantastic movie.

    Jurassic Park. One of my all time favorites.

    There's plenty more but I'll leave it at this for now.

    Second alternative, I know it's in Russian but english subtitles are easy to find. It's one of the best modern time russian movies I saw. Effects, story, actors, everything is perfect.
