Anyone want to watch some Billy Wilder movies and talk about them? Unfortunately they're not free on popular screening services right now, except Sunset Boulevard, but local libraries have a lot of them and also they're only 3 bucks streaming rental. Anyone in?

So, I created a Cycling Club as a trial balloon just to see if anyone is interested in talking about pro racing of any kind (no motorized doping though!). You can find it here. I know there have been decent comment totals on Blue posts in the past concerning racing, but if it fizzles out NBD. [more inside]

Would anyone be interested in a club for subtitled Bollywood movies that are available on Netflix? They've got some real gems (DDLJ!) and I think it would be a lot of fun to go back and re-watch some with The Internet.
Netflix has a panoply of cheap schlocky movies. Sometimes these are good, and sometimes these are terrible. The idea would be to pick out 10 or so of these, put them into a randomizer, then then watch a randomly selected one on a bi-weekly basis. Would anyone else be interested in this?
The next pick for the MeFi Horror Club will be posted to Fanfare on Friday, December 5th. A Tale of Two Sisters (Hangul: 장화, 홍련; Janghwa, Hongryeon) is a 2003 South Korean psychological horror film written and directed by Kim Jee-woon. The film is inspired by a Joseon Dynasty folktale entitled "Janghwa Hongryeon jeon", which has been adapted to film several times. The plot focuses on two sisters who, after returning home from a psychiatric hospital, experience increasingly disturbing events involving both them and their stepmother. [more inside]

One of my favorite genres of movie are those where the protagonist is dealing with living inside of a simulated or constructed reality. The Matrix is the most popular example, but there are many, many more (of vastly varying quality). There are already a lot of movie clubs going, so I thought I would put out a feeler for interest.
I like watching a swath of new pilots each fall and then attempting to judge which of them will develop into watchable shows. Would anyone else like to have a "New Show" club to watch a number of these (whether we stick with the shows or not)? [more inside]
Eraserhead, David Lynch's early midnight hit. I will post this on Monday, lively discussion sure to follow.
