📽️ What Movie to screen at my upcoming Movie Night?
Exciting stuff is happening around me...
I am getting closer and closer to hosting my first movie night.
Or, to be more precise, to selecting a film to be screened in a nearby creative space.
I plan to give a little talk about the movie too, before it starts, without giving anything away or talking much about its plot or story.
Why talk about the content a lot if that's what people can find out for themselves, when they watch it? I never understood that and it usually bores me.
There is a little problem though and I can't start screening anything before I have resolved it:
I have no idea what film I should screen.
In fact, I hardly have an idea about the genre to pick from.
I just know that it won't be horror.
That's the only restriction that the guy who rents out the space ( and who will co-organize these nights with me ) laid on me.
That's okay. I used to love the genre but, in all honesty, there's enough horror ( and drama ), enough spreading of fear, in the world already.
You only have to check the news for it.
So why is it so difficult to pick a movie?
If you have known me for a while, it's not like I don't know anything about movies. In fact, I studied film theory ( and history and analysis and whatever you can think of related to film ), in University and spent many years working on my own movie projects.
Combine that with the fact that I have probably watched over 5000 movies and with me not being the strongest at making choices and you will get the idea.
I like a good challenge though.
In the following episode of my podcast, The Life of Hypersensitivosaurus, I talk some more about my upcoming movie nights and the above dilemma.
You might enjoy listening to it:
Also, if you can think of any feel good movie that is not well known/ mainstream but also not so arthouse-y that it bores most people
@namiks ? I'm looking at you ;<)
please hit me up.
Also be prepared for me telling you that I probably won't screen the movie you suggest haha!
In the mean time, I will keep on looking for something worth watching and >
Coming To A Theater Near Me Very Soon!
