Well, it’s official. The early members of Molly Movie Club have made several very respectable suggestions for our first movie, and two perhaps-not-as-respectable ones.
It turns out I have seen precisely the two not-as-respectable ones. Is Anna Rettberg quietly judging me? It is very possible.
But really, it’s not as bad as I’m making it sound. After we’d already made this comic and a draft of the post, movie club member Kenny still Alive added “Gattaca” to the running. That seems like a respectable movie, doesn’t it? And I have seen that one!
So thank you, Kenny. You saved me from a very embarrassing situation.
Now on to the business at hand. The movie suggestions for our inaugural movie, in alphabetical order, were:
The Green Knight
Hard Ticket to Hawaii [1 vote so far]
Hunt for the Wilderpeople [3 votes so far]
Interstellar [6 votes so far]
The Purple Rose of Cairo [4 votes so far]
Toy Story 4
Wet Hot American Summer
Now, I would love to have a nice little poll widget here where everyone can vote. In fact, I thought you could put one of those in Substack. But upon searching, it turns out you can’t actually do that. The best you can do is embed a third-party thing, and we’re not going to do that kind of nonsense!
I’ve asked Substack if that might be on the horizon - hopefully it is - but in the meantime, let’s just do this the old fashioned way: everyone who would like to vote, please post your vote as a comment! I’ll tally them up and post the count.
“Actually, it’s not a problem I own the restaurant/airline”
Hunt for the Wilderpeople! I'm curious to see what you think about the kiwi style
