If others would like to, then why not. personally, I'd rather just watch the films and discuss in my limited way.

The reading would of course be optional, though I'm getting a sense that people would prefer not to do this.

Regarding the rules:

1) Take turns to nominate three films, by number above.

OK

2) Members vote on preferred film in a 1,2,3 order.  Film 1 gets 3 points, film 2 gets 2 points, film three gets one point.

OK

3) Film with most points is the film to be watched.

OK

4) You have two weeks to watch (TBD).

I think the rest of the month, as you have to purchase,wait for, and find time to watch the film. OK

5) No discussion until everybody has seen it.

Ok, but allow for occasions, where a member may say that they are interested in a film, because they have heard that it has received a wide range of reviews (ie some pro/some con). Of course the member could not say what the reviews were.

6) Discussion can start after everyone has seen it and does not have to wait two weeks - eg if everybody watches it on day one, we don't have to wait

OK

7) You can discuss as long as you want, but new film nomination starts immediately - ie no moratorium on previous fims, but move on to selection of next film immediately.

I think wait until the next month, because when everyone has seen a film, and discussed it, they may want to view the film again, to see if their original views need revising (now that they have heard the points raised during the discussion).

Thoughts?

Regarding supplementary reading - it may prove useful for some films where there is an interest in background reading about elements shown in the film, or whether the film was typical of the Directors previous work, or etc. I agree that the format of the background reading should be available in a format that is accessible by all the members (eg pdf, html, etc).

It's an open forum so anyone can join in with suggestions and comments on the films. The six thing is more just to make the selection process manageable, as I see it.

I agree. We couldn't close off discussion, even if we wanted to. Maybe the six should be regarded as a film selection panel rather than members.

If it becomes popular, we can rotate the selection panel month on month.

RE: The all new WHF Film Club needs members

But on the basis of their imdb synopses, I would vote for them in the order 2, 1, 3.

RE: The all new WHF Film Club needs members

Could you clarify your votes for the hard of thinking?

I'm really not sure who's winning.

If you need an ombudsman to referee disputes, I'll apply for that job......provided I can sit on some Black Ravioli, and bang my Shillelagh when order is called for.

No, put your first choice first, second choice second, third choice third.

So my choice was (in order of preference)

The second film;
The first film;
The third film.

Am on my mobile so can't check back the names
