The clear winner in our quest to select a 'Ladies Night' movie (with 20 upvotes and an additional three bonus points for being nominated by a female user, having a main female character and passing the Bechdel Test) was the 1984 film classic 'The Terminator', starring Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

We'll be watching the film together in the Mos Eisley chatroom on April 15th at 10pm UTC (11pm BST, 6pm EDT).

FAQ

  • What is a movie night?

  • Which version will we be watching?
    The theatrical cut is available (to purchase) on youtube and Vudu and you can also watch the movie online on DailyMotion here and here.

  • How do I make sure I'm in the same place as everyone else?
    We'll be hosting a copy of the film on watch2gether.com, a video-sharing platform. All you need to do is click the link (that'll be provided on the day) and it'll take care of synching the video for you. Alternatively, you can just wait for me to tell you when to start.

  • What if I want to complain loudly about Arnold's inability to act or speak properly?
    Then in the immortal words of the Terminator,

    "F٭ck you, A٭٭hole".

    @ILoveYou - Can't please everyone, I'm afraid. – Valorum Apr 1 '17 at 17:10
  • @amaranth - What could possibly be more important? – Valorum Apr 2 '17 at 9:13

    Meeting time for April Movie Night. (TIP: Iceland follows UTC all year round, among some other countries, making it a convenient location selector when "UTC" is unavailable.) – aneroid Apr 4 '17 at 6:38
  • I probably also can't make it :( – MissMonicaE Apr 4 '17 at 12:40
  • @MissMonicaE - That's a shame since it's your pick. Hmm. That's at least two refusals so far. Perhaps a different day/time would be better? There's nothing to stop us from moving it... – Valorum Apr 4 '17 at 12:46
  • @Valorum I'll be doing Easter stuff, I'm afraid (and visiting my sister the next weekend, so I may come under "can't please everyone"). – MissMonicaE Apr 4 '17 at 15:08

    @MissMonicaE - On reflection, Easter weekend may not be the ideal time... Hmm. Let me have a think – Valorum Apr 4 '17 at 15:13

    Can't make the 15th either. Going to have to be a late night watch after everyone's seen it again I guess. – Edlothiad Apr 5 '17 at 15:20
  • @Edlothiad - I'm gonna move the date. It's not proving popular. – Valorum Apr 5 '17 at 15:28
  • Before the 14th? Cool, glad we're agreed! :-P – Edlothiad Apr 5 '17 at 15:28
  • @Edlothiad - I was thinking possibly the evening of the 21st or 22nd – Valorum Apr 5 '17 at 15:29
  • I'm sure others will make it, but I most likely won't, either way it'll be a good un! – Edlothiad Apr 5 '17 at 15:30

    @amaranth Twas the night before Easter, when all through the chat / Not a chatter was stirring, not even a rat. / The schedule was hung by the starboard with care, / In hopes that T-800 soon would be there. – Rand al'Thor Apr 6 '17 at 0:19

    @MissMonicaE - Possibly, but how do you prevent abuse? Better, I think to simply pick a closer date. – Valorum Apr 6 '17 at 20:25

The Terminator Movie Night was a success. We had a good number of participants (7) as well as a slightly higher number of lurkers (8). On the downside, despite the "Ladies Night" motif we only had one female active participant and a couple of female lurkers.

MissMoniceE (who proposed the film) was unable to attend due to schedulding conflicts but will get first pick of the theme for the next Movie Night as compensation. Go pester her in chat if there's a genre you're especially interested in.


On a related note, the video-room (provided by Watch2Gether.com) was useful. At one point we had seven people viewing the site at the same time.
