It’s been a while since the last watchalong, 8 months to be precise, and I thought it was about time to do it again. Like the last time I will give you the opportunity to choose from a list of movies.
The “rules” are simple. If you’d like to join and have a blog, please post on the same day, if you don’t have a blog, just watch the movie and join the discussion.
The poll will decide which one we will watch.
Here are the choices:
The Bomber – Ballada O Bombere (2011 Russia)
Johnny Got His Gun (1971 US)
The Hurt Locker (2008 US)
I will announce the poll results on Sunday 9 September 2012.
The discussion will take place on Sunday 23 September 2012
There you go: I’ll be the one person to vote for Johnny Got His Gun. The screenplay was co-written by Luis Buñuel. I guess I’ll watch it anyway.
I will watch it anyway as well sooner or later although I’m afraid it might be quite graphic but it should be an interesting movie for other reasons, I agree.
You won’t be the only one – although I think it didn’t age well, it’s quite interesting to watch.
I find that many movies from the 70s didn’t age well. It’s seems it will be the winner. I wanted to watch it any way sooner or later…
I can’t get Bomber, although I would have voted for it. I think Johnny is too depressing and will not get a lot of participation, plus it is not clearly a war movie. The Hurt Locker has several things to discuss.
I will watch all three of them because I’ve got the anyway. I’m afraid that Johnny Got His Gun will be depressing but it also looks like a movie which will give a lot to discuss, same fot THe Hurt Locker. Bomber could be a Russian Pearl Harbor or a good movie, I’m not sure but I’m surprised you cannot find it.
If you have an all-region player, it’s available from Amazon US. Well worth the purchase.
I can join The Hurt Locker 🙂
The others…not so sure I can find it.
They will be a bit difficult to find, I’m sure but unfortunately it’s not going to be The Hurt Locker.
