It was an amazing commentary on the 2016 presidential election. Completely captured the atmosphere of that era and was a stunning recreation of the terror it brought. Great movie, 10/10 can't wait for the sequel: The Happeninging.

Themes are good. It provides structure.

They don't have to be followed, but at least it's a starting point.

Themes don't have to be genres either. ie. "Fear and Hope", "Existential Angst", "Unrequited Love", "Water", or "Freedom" could be themes.

You could start a wiki for this sub. Post the date, time, movie, (and theme) in one list, maybe list the contenders for folks to catch if they like, and in another section invite people to add their theme suggestions. Every week we would vote on the movie of that week and the theme of the next week. If you and folks like.

In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastic story of five mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality blurs as the tale advances.

Writers: Dan Gilroy (screenplay), Nico Soultanakis (screenplay) | 2 more credits »

Stars: Lee Pace, Catinca Untaru, Justine Waddell | See full cast & crew »

At a Los Angeles hospital in the 1920s, Alexandria is a child recovering from a broken arm. She befriends Roy Walker, a movie stunt man with legs paralyzed after a fall. At her request, Roy tells her an elaborate story about six men of widely varied backgrounds who are on a quest to kill a corrupt provincial governor. Between chapters of the story, Roy inveigles Alexandria to scout the hospital's pharmacy for morphine. As Roy's fantastic tale nears its end, Death seems close at hand.

Air Force Lt. Col.

Well we've already missed the boat on the comedy theme, but a horror/christmas theme is a great idea. I might do a showing of independence day for the week of the 4th of July as well. Thanks for the great idea!

You could just find movies that are on YouTube. Not every movie is there, or free, but there are enough. Recently I learned that The Pentagon Wars 1998 is there, and have yet to see it.

And chat in SaidIt's The Lounge IRC chat.

Why does running PeerTube set you back anything?

Yes SaidIt could technically host a PeerTube instance but CPU for transcoding and storage space are not trivial and this isn't our core mission or even on our roadmap. If we openly ran this stream it seems a bit risky.

Why does it cost someone something? Because PeerTube is federated and doesn't rely on some pie in the sky ICO that will be deader than shit in 12 months. People actually own and control their instances and data.

Ok, I misunderstood then. I think @d3rr is saying that other people can host their own peertube for 5 buckaroos on their own VPS and never offered to host it on saidit.

So from what I understand this comes down to a peertube instance or BitChute. I'm leaning more towards BitChute atm.

If worst comes to worst we could just torrent the thing, but I'd really prefer it be a streaming service.

running your own PeerTube instance will

make you personally liable for whatever copyrighted material you upload and share?

Rather be a small fish in the sea than the whale in the pool.

A free but DMCA susceptible solution is to just upload the video to BitChute or PeerTube (...) at which time movie night will already be over.

dis. Lowers the virtually non-existent risk even further.

Why does running PeerTube set you back anything?

Although, for what it's worth, I think Saidit should look into a public performance license, and only allow Saidit users to access the stream. Then (IANAL, but I think) it'll be perfectly legal to host the movie nights, since it's effectively a (decentralised, in the case of PeerTube) closed-circuit distribution platform.

Yeah you could do whatevs and post a link to the official chat on the video page. Or you could do a 15m PeerTube hack and embed whatever chat you wanted on that video page. (I don't think discord has embed-able chat but I don't keep up with it).

PeerTube can handle everything but 6 (chat), and if you use your own instance no one can do a DMCA takedown. Peer to peer streaming will keep it fast for everyone.

Edit: since there's some interest in PeerTube as a solution, I'll add that running your own PeerTube instance will set you back $5/mo. for up to 25gb of videos.

A free but DMCA susceptible solution is to just upload the video to BitChute or PeerTube (someone else's instance) or another platform and assume that they won't take it down for 24h at which time movie night will already be over. But you know what they say- if it is to be, then it's up to me.
