So I've got a question about the movies that we'll be watching. I know we'll be watching on Rabbit, but what are we looking for as far as accessibility goes? What I mean is, are we looking for things that are strictly on paid streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, or are we broadening our horizons to - as my wife's friend group likes to call it - Somalia? I mostly ask because as a Canadian I often run into films on Netflix that my wife and her friends can't access on Rabbit due to differences in national availability. I'd like to be sure that the movies I suggest are actually viable.

As for my first nomination, I would like to nominate Who Killed Captain Alex?, which is an Ugandan action film that is freely available on YouTube. Being filmed in Uganda by a native film crew for consumption by local villages it has a considerably lower budget than even "low budget" American films, and it is definitely flawed, but I feel that the genuine passion and love for filmmaking that the creators have really take its sillier qualities and glaring flaws and makes the whole thing very endearing and entertaining.

Excellent question! I'm gonna try to use paid streaming services when possible (I have Netflix, could occasionally buy movies on Youtube, and am considering getting a Hulu subscription), but otherwise I don't necessarily have a problem with visiting Somalia.

I'm probably gonna pick a movie myself to watch next week as a way to really kick V2 off rather than opening nominations right off the bat, though Who Killed Captain Alex? does sound like something I'd wanna watch. Definitely keep it in mind for when nominations do open up!

V2's first movie has been announced! Since this is a Pokemon forum, I thought it would be fitting to watch a Pokemon movie for our inaugural viewing. As such, this Friday, The Drive-In will be watching Pokemon 3: Spell of the Unown!

Looking forward to our first showing. In the meantime, when should we open nominations for our next one? I imagine we'd want to move quickly to ensure there's enough time for both nominations and voting to take place.

Traditionally, nominations open after the last movie is over, and remain open until either 3 movies have been nominated or Friday gets too close (usually meaning Wednesday or Thursday).

I nominate something I guarantee few people have seen but I figured it would be a fun watch: Darby O' Gill and The Little People! It's an Irish story about a man and the king of leprechauns.

Isa has been added!

The poll is up! Choose which one you'd most like to see, and we may just watch it! The poll will close on Friday morning (my time), so get to voting!
