You knew it was coming, but here's the official announcement: F This Movie Fest 6 will be taking place on February 11th!
If you're unfamiliar with F This Movie Fest, it's a day every year where we all watch movies together and talk about them over Twitter. Here's the deal:
1. Secure copies of all five movies! (DVD/Blu-ray, Amazon Instant Video, iTunes rentals, public libraries, etc.)
2. If you're not already doing so, follow F This Movie! on Twitter (@fthismovie). If you're not already on Twitter, you should sign up! You can quit the very next day if you want.
3. Don't quit. Keep following us on Twitter.
4. Beginning at Noon on Saturday, February 11th, we all start watching the first movie at the same time from the comfort of YOUR OWN HOME and talk about it on Twitter (just tag all of your comments with #fthismoviefest). It will be like a running commentary. A conversation. Just like WE'RE ALL IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER!
5. We are not making fun of these movies. We love these movies.
6. If you have to leave for a movie or can only participate in half the festival or whatever, that's cool! Just check in or out with us on Twitter so we know who's there and when. Hopefully, we can all do the full marathon, but we know that's not easy for everyone.
This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of 1987, one of the last great years for the kind of mainstream genre cinema the decade produced. The lineup is:
(98 min., dir. Rob Reiner)
(107 min., dir. John McTiernan)
(94 min., dir. Joel & Ethan Coen)
(101 min. dir. Paul Verhoeven)
(82 min., dir. Fred Dekker)
Start getting ready! Get your movies in order and watch this space for more details!
