    A Place in the Sun

    I actually really loved the movie, but the ending with the trial and the "your guilty in your heart" nonsense knocked this out of the spaceship for me. I didn't hate the ending, but I thought it was iffy enough to not be considered for the aliens.

    Groundhog Day

    Yea that's why I voted yes. I do love it and it is such a current milestone. I agree with Paul & Amy that it's mostly just the writing. Cinematically, it's pretty light and almost too "typical" (ie. the music, etc.). But the cast and the script carry it very far beyond that.

    Musical Mondays Week 110 Preview (Grudlian's pick)

    yea. we don't want to try to steal Paul's community there. if people want to chat about politics or the NBA or whatever, he's got a big Discord and places to do that. we'll have a few extra channels for side convos, but mostly we're sticking to awful movies. (and we have set up spots for our HDTGM watchalongs and Musical Mondays). that should keep it better focused and more forum-like, I think.

    Chungking Express

    I love the movie a lot, but I had to vote no. I'm putting a VERY high bar on my votes.

    Musical Mondays Week 110 Preview (Grudlian's pick)

    It is something we the mods are constantly discussing, and will be flexible and take any suggestions into account. We are going to use a few focused channels, especially for 'current' episodes. Every two weeks, we'll sort of 'clear it' in a way. If you want to talk about older movies/episodes, there's other channels for that to happen. People don't post Corrections & Omissions for old episodes anyway, so I don't anticipate too much cross-talk there. And really how often to people bump up really old threads here? We all stay fairly well-focused on the most recent eps. We'll have to see how the chatting develops though (and also consider how it is useful for Paul and crew) and be willing to adjust on the fly. I've been in some big Discords and discussions happen all the time and quicker. My biggest worry is it may be a little harder to write longer thought-out posts for Corrections & Omissions but we're confident it will end up there as we all get used to it. We are doing our best to set it all up like a forum, so to make the transition easier. Also, the big Discords I'm in have much more close-knit connections. We can chat a little more than we do here. Like, I don't know where almost any of you live, yet I chat with all of you all the time. We can converse now in Discord! That said, this is a pretty much purely a HDTGM Discord. I don't anticipate it being as broad as other groups, like Paul's own Discord.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    Yea, if we want to share links, joke around, share what we're watching, be like 'hey good morning friends!', post a meme, etc. Discord is pretty fun! And very bonding. I'm in one for another pod and the channels are always having great conversation. We've also started helping each other with fitness, and there's book clubs, fantasy sports leagues, and all sorts of community things rising out of it. I haven't tried the streaming watchalong things on there yet. (To note, I have not once posted in Paul's, but I have glanced around it. Maybe it will get there. I believe it requires heavy moderation.) That's why I test-started one for Musical Mondays, just so maybe we can keep in touch better (and on wider topics). (I'm fine with it not catching on though lol.) Anyway, I don't think the two things should be at odds. In fact, they should and could work together.

    Right, yea, and it ties into what Amy noted about the way the kids find little bits of life to grasp on to. Because we're trapped in without any external explanations, it makes those moments stronger (both for the kids and for us watching).

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    I do find Discord and boards quite different; mainly one of being able to easier use Discord on a phone and the quick, direct conversation style of it. In some ways since I started using it, I use Twitter less; it feels more analogous to that to me. But I would think a podcast like Paul's where he talks about our written-out theories and stuff would need the message board where people can put lasting posts. So it's all very odd he said that.
