Movie group watch - July 28th 2018, 02:15 PM

Would anyone be interested in doing a group watch of a movie?

I want to look into options for doing this but I'd like to see how many people would be interested.

We'd have to agree on a time which might be hard as we are all over the world but we could:

1) watch a movie and chat about it in the chat room
2) watch a movie and discuss it in a thread - this one might be easier to do with the different time zones.

I still haven't figured it all out. Would love feedback and all that.

Hands down yes I would! Although option number two would suit me better. This is a brilliant idea!

I would love to! Even though I am in the US like you, I think option #2 would suit me the best.

That sounds cool if there’s a way for me to access the movie! I have Netflix and Hulu.

I'd be in! It probably shouldn't be anything triggering to anyone though :3 I think it would be better if we had a thread about it, not everyone comes in chat any more.

This would be fun I also agree to make a thread, so that others can join too.

I am about to watch The Spectacular Now on Netflix. Has anyone seen it? Any interest? Link to the IMDB page in the title.

I am interested in Independent Films, so I looked that Genre up under Netflix's movie selections and The Spectacular Now was the second suggestion. I mostly did so because of Shaliene Woodley and Brie Larson.

Note: This movie is rated R. R typically means 18+ in the United States.

That's a lovely idea- I'd definitely be up for it! I don't mind which format but perhaps a thread is better just because of the time zone differences.

I agree maybe a thread would be better. Because what if we are all in chat talking about it but then someone comes in and wants help with a problem? Also because of time zones.

Re: Movie group watch - July 28th 2018, 11:35 PM

It seems like a fair amount of people are interested. We could discuss what movies to consider watching.


I was thinking that we should avoid anything too triggering. We can't prevent it completely but I was hoping the group watch could be something fun for people to have to look forward too.


I don't know what's available on Netflix. I am open to anything, really.


Movies that jump out to me as being less triggering are Disney movies and some other kids movies.


Anyone have any thoughts on movies to do?


I was thinking a thread would be a good idea too because it would help with the different time zones. Make it easier for everyone who wants to be able to participate.

Re: Movie group watch - July 28th 2018, 11:43 PM

I have a Netflix subscription. I would love to watch the Toy Story series from beginning to end. Not sure if Finding Nemo/Dory is on Netflix, but I found that to be a bit too stressful. I watched bits of Moana a few weeks ago with my niece, but I don't know enough to really make a judgement.

I am going to create a group and in there I'll make something where we can compile movies. At some point we can also try and discuss a time to try and do it. Maybe we could open the thread one weekend and then people can join in once they've had the time to watch.


I don't want to open a thread before people are ready to watch as it could lead to it closing.


I created a group here it is: http://www.teenhelp.org/socialgroups...h+group+watch/

Something to keep in mind, not all Netflix has the same title, so it would have to be something everyone can see!

I would be interested as well

[QUOTE] Something to keep in mind, not all Netflix has the same title, so it would have to be something everyone can see! [/quote]

Maybe we could compile a list of options, and if any of them aren't available we can pick a different option?

Aha apparently my quote tag isn't working.

We could compile the list in the social group and then if there are titles that aren't available we could cross them out or remove them. It will probably be easier to keep track of titles in the social group.

Depending on the movie and how much free time I have, I may be interested.
I know that some of movies that people have mentioned (Ballerina/Mary and the Witches Flower/Toy Story(1-3)/Finding Nemo) aren’t on my Netflix but Coco and Finding Dory are.

I'm not sure how useful this is, but I know of at least one site where a group of people can watch one movie together at the same time. Only one person needs to have access to the movie, and they host a room to share it with others where you can hang out and chat in real-time. This could be a way to get around the differences in availability between regions, as well as taking into account the fact that not everybody has a Netflix (or other streaming service) subscription to begin with.

I've heard of this. I was actually going to suggest us using it but it seemed like people were more interested in having a thread where we discuss things. I'd still be open to utilizing this option though. I've heard that it's a really fun thing to do too.
