The [Watch Party] Thread, because let's face it, we still shouldn't go outside...

GREETINGS!

I am Amateurhour and I have a dream. We, the few, the proud, the CHAT, should hang out and watch movies together. I went to a lot of sites to see what all is available for streaming and watch party and this article sums it up pretty well.

For this we're going to focus on Prime Video, Hulu, Disney+, and Netflix.

For Netflix, you're gonna need a browser extension. I've used this one before and it works pretty well

So here's the idea. First, if you're interested, let me know with a !MOVIES in your color of choice. When you join the club, also let me know the following

- What days/times work best for you (please include your time zone and location, as some things will be region blocked)
- a recommendation for a movie or documentary, that is available through watch party services (I'll comprise a list based on that and we can vote)

I'm also considering trivia and door prizes for best commentary, it could be:

- a $25 blockbuster gift card, unopened!
- a VHS copy of The Hunt for Red October!
- and more!

Signups will run through the end of July, at which point we'll set dates and pick movies. I'll do this through a google docs poll or something so we can track it.

FAQs

- is there a discord channel or anything? No, at this time I'm setting this up using the built in watch party chat function only. It's going to get confusing if we're all talking.
- what about ratings/content matter? Please, if you post a movie or show that you want to submit for vote, make sure you post the rating of it, or an IMDB link to the film/show (or Wikipedia, just something so we can see what we're getting into in case something is problematic)
- what about tv shows? For now let's stick to movies, but tv shows are an option
- can we have more than one watch group? Absolutely, this isn't Russia Danny... Let's get a roster together first and then we can figure out multiple schedules
- amateurhour what the fuck is this?

Listen, we're all friends here and it's been a long two years and some of us haven't seen much of the outside world. Times like this, it's good to come together. I love media and joking around with y'all.

So I'll start.

!MOVIES

I'm in the United States, central time zone (-6 GMT), I would be open to almost any night after 9:00PM or between 5:00PM and 7:00PM

For my recommendation, I'm throwing up Repo! The Genetic Opera (currently on Amazon Prime)

I love y'all, hope this is fun.

are YOU on the beer list?

    - Evenings work, if I’m not on shift. Wednesdays almost always work.
    - The Death of Stalin, The Big Lebowski, Uncut Gems, Chinatown, Gunpowder Milkshake, and the Star Trek reboot are on Netflix, but I’m not super picky.
