Okay, in the chat thread a few of us have decided to have a monthly movie review.

So this is how it goes :p

-We will collectively choose a film that nobody has seen + a recomendation from other person.

-The limit for watching these 2 films is 2 weeks. Then we will review the 2 films in this thread.

-For the following 2 weeks, we will do the same again.

-This month the 2 set films will be classic movies. The 2 recommendations can be classic or modern.

-This is kind of experiemental, so for the 1st month it will be myself, Marly, Ileana & Angele reviewing. However, after 16th October if anyone else wants to join they will be more than welcome :D

-Therefore to clarify :p
We will have 2 movies every 2 weeks=4 a month
2 classic movies + 2 recommendations.

-Myself & Marly will recommend films to each other, as will Ileana & Angele. Each of us should post the films we have already seen to avoid to make recomendations clearer.

Is this all clear? :scratch: :p
