  1. 1. Would you be happy to share your movie collection with other members?

    • Yes, I have been dying to get my mitts on a copy of Tarkowsky's 'Stalker'
    • No, I can have all the sexy movies I need from Pantip
    • Can we also swap beer commercials?

@ Nicky: I thought someone would come up / support the idea of a book / reading club. Perhaps a dedicated threat would be in order to see how many people would like to join in. :)

@ PJack: You are right. I know there are a few film buffs on here and they may not be living in the same vicinity and hence didn't think there would be a lot of people able or willing to join. But rather than trying to get a particular movie send over from the states or Europe because you just can't get it here, I thought it may be easier to see if someone on here hasn't got it already and would let one have a copy. Meeting up occasionally to talk film sounds like groovy idea too. :thumbleft:

@ Admin: Not sure if watching your version of 'Robbie does Boston' wouldn't violate the Geneva Convention and the UN Anti-torture Charter... :wink: :twisted:

@ Iain: How predictable though I didn't quite expect you jumping in there head on...I mean I have seen funnier stuff by KK. :roll:

It looks like some folks have a rather large collection and having them write a list with all the movies in their collection would be a bit much to ask for. So, I suggest that if there is interest (as it appears to be) to make two sticky threads.

One where folks can list part or all of their collection they are willing to share/swop/lend/exchange. If, like Palmy, you got 600 or so of them perhaps just list some of the once you think people may be interested in or that give some ideas of what kind of movies you like so others may contact you if they are looking for something specific.

The second one will be a 'Searching for...' thread. Any movie you can't find to buy here but would like to watch just post in this thread and hopefully someone will come to the rescue. :wink:

movie club ?? meeting once a month ??

i remember at the back of a book once reading guidelines on setting up a book/reading club and thought it would be a great idea for TF .... but i was too f**king lazy to post it !!! :roll: :roll:

That's great idea. (can't believe I say this to CiaranM), don't be such a lazy a*s. Post it, I'll join the club.

well from memory .... get a group of ppl preferably around 12-20. nominate a time/date/place to meet once a month .... say 7pm, second wednesday every month at a coffee shop/bar/restaurant/peemarc's place !!

then members take turns to select a title (1 book a month). everybody reads it and disucces at next meeting and next member then selects new title for that month !! if ppl from outside thailand wanted to participate i guess the discussion could take place online in a seperate forum similar to what hobbes does for the phtotgraphy !!

more tips/ideas here ..... http://bestsellers.about.com/od/bookclubresources/ht/start_book_club.htm

Now I'm sure most people are aware and know where to stock up on the latest box office offerings here in BKK to then take home. But over the last couple of months I also noticed that whenever I was looking for movies from past years, lesser known titles or dare I say non-Hollywood productions, all one gets is this blank look in the face on the other side of the counter.

I'm pretty sure most expats do bring at least a small collection of their favourite movies when settling here in LoS (I certainly did but wished I had brought more :cry: ).

Downloading some harder-to-find movies on torrents on the other hand can be pretty tedious with the connections here and of course isn't legal either. :wink:

So, I wondered if perhaps some people here would be willing to share / swop / exchange movies from their collections with other interested members?.

Great idea and count me in. The commitment to rebound the movies is very important especially as many travel a lot.

Just to clarify, did you mention that the club includes partner swapping as well? :wink:

There are few places one can buy golden oldies and or foreign titles. There is a DVD stall on Silom which used to be near the western stairs on Taniya side but now they are outside that British Pub on the corner of Thaniya. Lots of Spanish, French and of course Japanese titles. They sell cheaper once you go regularly.

A couple of the stalls at Panthip have an ok selection of non-Hollywwon but I don't like oging there much. There was also one at Fortune which had many euro titles but I've not been there for a long time.

Also, there is the travelling GM excess stall (similar to the travelling Asian books stall) of original DVDs selling for 79 baht, yes not pirated, which does the rounds of the smaller shopping centers and 2-3 times a year there are outside the APEX cinema (Siam). They have a good mix of titles from Ben Hur, to Citazen Kane, to Lord of the Rings, The Piano to more recent movies including other asian (Korean, jap & gin).

They were at Siam on Tuesday night so they should be there for a week or so. Also, they were at Century Plaza at Victory on Sunday night (1st floor).

well from memory .... get a group of ppl preferably around 12-20. nominate a time/date/place to meet once a month .... say 7pm, second wednesday every month at a coffee shop/bar/restaurant/peemarc's place !!

Do you think we should ask Peemarc?! And ah, did he not just move out last weekend from that reported urban oasis????

as I posted on my journal yesterday, I now live and work in same house as pics shown. If you want to talk about this place as a venue, Im open. But... i dont really want to turn it into a beer and pool venue (sorry) you can do that at Gullivers or wherever. If you want to do some sort of book club/networking thingy here...ok... can discuss.

Could we please try and keep the movie and book thingy separate. Otherwise some folks will just get confused as to what it is all about (like LG who already wants to throw his car keys into the bowl :P ).

Thanks LG for mentioning some places one may find some older or European movies. :)

Can i join, I just have only pirate DVDs?

Is there another type of DVD?

:lol::lol::lol:

Yes, you are welcome to join :)

Indeed true but in the back of my mind I am foreseeing that some movie exec is reading this at one of the big studios in LA. He notifies the movie studios rep in Bangkok, the company gets one of its staff to join TF and subsequently the movie swap club (being a male he is also interested in the potential partner swapping that some silly TF member mentioned).

The companies rep notifies DSI and the FBI liason agents at the US embassey in BKK; he turns up to the 1st TF movie swap mtg where 30 TF members have attended with a few thousand DVDs, many of questionable origin, he then makes a call and bingo mtg is flooded with boys in brown.

We all end up on the front page of the Bkk Post the next day and our DVDs are subsequently destroyed in a media event 3 days later! :shock:

DSI thanks admin stating that the whole operation has been a success and very 'profitable' for police members and could admin pls organise a new movie club mtg with other TF members. The Thai govt gets a few kudos with the US after a big press conference.

And TF gets a plug in the press - in the weeks to follow membership goes through the roof. (The reason; misreporting in the Post stated that TF is a partner swapping site and members attending the movie mtg as front for other sordid activities). :lol:

Thankfully, such a scenario could never come to fruitition. :roll:

Actually, You have a very good point there, LG. I have to agree with you. We should consider more about this. I'm not a lawyer, and I don't really know how they take this thing in Thailand but if in Denmark or Euroupe you guys can end up paying a lot of money.

Not because of your post, Nong 1. But it's about the Movie Swapping Club.

We might need to get more info on this. Any lawyer in the house?
