Time After Time [joseph conrad is fully awesome] - Monday, Nov 23
Rock 'n' Roll High School [Sheydem-tants] - Saturday, Nov 28

The Seduction of Joe Tynan [joseph conrad is fully awesome] - Thursday, Dec 3

Tim [joseph conrad is fully awesome] - Thursday, Dec 10
All That Jazz [up for grabs!] - Saturday, Dec 12
Quadrophenia [up for grabs!] - Jan 9, 2016
If you're looking to do a film for the club, el io offers up a great list of films in this comment, and here's a list of the most popular feature films released in 1979 from Amazon (h/t We had a deal, Kyle).

(If a film is already scheduled and 'claimed' that you love and would really like to post, do send me a memail, I can give it to you, no probs. Otherwise just feel free to schedule a film and place your name in brackets next to it, thanks.)

Oh man, Time After Time...or as my wife and I call it "The Rape of H.G. Wells, Spoon Thief".

Oh man, I didn't realize how many awesome films came out in 1979!

Would love to put myself forward for Alien. I can also go back and add the club tag to Rocky II, which I posted sometime ago, if we want to include it.

OK, Alien was done about a year ago, so I added some of the links I was doing for a post on it, and then tagged it for this club. Rocky II also tagged.
