I sympathise with you about this.BIGBERNARDBRESSLAW said:OK. Dave and Ben have had nothing at all to say about 'The Girl From Nowhere', and Ben hasn't bothered to vote for THIS months film, so if no-one is interested, I cannot be arsed anymore.
Good post, Mike.expat_mike said:I thought that there were several hooks for discussion during the 'The Girl From Nowhere', and I was expecting far more discussion. Three of us have made an attempt to suggest a few plausible ideas about what the film sequences might actually represent, and I was hoping that the other two members might add something, but there has been silence.
When the club started, there was detailed discussion about most of the films. However now that some of the original members have left, we mainly seem to just get members recommending what good films are coming up on TV during the next few days. I think we need to all agree what the purpose of the club will be in future, eg is it a discussion forum, or is it a place to recommend films, or is it something else. I am not trying to start a row with anyone, but unless we agree on the way forward, the club will continue to sleepwalk to a complete stop. *scratch_one-s_head*
One of the very few reasons for me to even bother logging in to this forum is the film club, and the complete lack of enthusiasm from some of the members has left me feeling less than enthusiastic myself.richardw42 said:Is this the end ?
I echo those sentiments, however i agree with BBB that we need more than 4 active members. It is also true that you need someone to drumbeat the activities, whether it is BBB reminding members that they need to watch or vote for films, or strapped intellectually drumbeating members to consider various elements about a films content/style/directorial Movement etc.richardw42 said:Although I haven't liked all the films I can say with certainty that I've watched stuff I'd never have considered and that's why I'd like to carry on.
Its nice to come on this forum and not argue.
Hi Mike. Very interesting topic and question!expat_mike said:This started me wondering if a similar theory is applied to films. This would hold that only the finished film is worth analysing, and that there is no point analysing what we think was in the directors mind.
