I assume a similar format to the last FBC will be used, where Zeke will post a transcript of the scene to jog everyone's memories and to have something to work off. I never popped in my copy of "The Matrix" while contributing -- the transcript was more than enough.

Also: Blockbuster has yet to send me any superfluous crap in the mail. Just fyi.

There's a little box to tick on the application form if you don't want stuff, usually.

A "DVD Rental via Mail" membership is, in my humble opinion, a great investment. And unlike many other drugs, it's legal.

How do I not have a movie rental membership yet? Well, putting aside the spam/junk mail/telemarketing issue (we really need an all-encompasing term for this, "mass marketing?"), I suppose that it's too big of a temptation. I'd rather save up for cable and TiVo.

Can't you rent it from a library then? Or do US libraries not do that?

In Germany maybe.

The drugs, that is.

I'm in favour of Independance Day. Mostly because I haven't seen most of the other movies suggested.

Also, hi.

They do; in many library systems, it's free. Nate's just being... Nate.

It comes nateurally to him.

Seriously though, I'm torn here. On the one hand, Independence Day would be an excellent choice. On the other hand, I gotta say I sympathize with Nate's situation. If he didn't get to participate last time -- all four years of last time -- it's perfectly fair for him to bring that up. So let's put Independence Day to one side for now. It may well be what I go with, but for now let's discuss the alternatives.

Star Wars? By which I mean, A New Hope, i.e. the original one.

I'd bet even Nate has seen that one.

I do rent movies at the library, VHS and DVD, too many of them in fact, but you can only find kiddie movies and classics that have artistic and historical value there, i.e. the Astaire/Rogers musicals that I love so much.

We haven't fived A New Hope yet?

Thanks for the sympathy. I admit that part of my reaction is sheer whininess, but the other part is a strong desire to participate.

Oh, and Nateness is now an accepted adjective around here? Might have to add that to the glossary.

We've already suggested a number of good alternatives. Why not just make a poll with the viable ones and see which one the group prefers the most?

Sorry, it had to be done.

My library used to be the same way, but it added a lot of movies to its collection when it moved to a new building a few months ago. Still it doesn't have as big a collection as a video store, so it would be difficult to get a movie like Independence Day.

Oh, and there is a fiver for A New Hope . Episodes One and Two haven't been fived yet, though. I wouldn't mind fiving one of them, if anyone else is interested. Maybe they're not as good as the other Star Wars movies, but that just means there's more to make fun of, meaning that they're better targets for fiving. Right?

Fiving Episodes One and Two? I've wondered why those haven't been done yet.

Who's up for umpteen "The Saga Begins" references?

As I recall, I gots II and Zeke gots I.

One of many things that has yet to materialize due to mutual procrastination.

I mean.. uh.. marketing. Yeah. Waiting for the right time to release new material into an oversaturated marketplace.

How long have you "gots"en it?

I suppose we should turn the discussion in another direction then.
