'Terrible Movie Night' Recaptures That MST3K Magic via Twitter
A bad movie is chosen and scheduled to be watched at a particular time. (For instance, the fantastic 'Gojira' is on the chopping block for tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST.) Participants then head to Netflix (or iTunes or Amazon, whichever you prefer), and watch together. As the film unfolds, watchers are encouraged to comment either via Facebook or Twitter, reveling in the filmic awfulness. Comments and jokes are slapped with a time stamp and saved for posterity. You can even go back and play comments from the community in real time, in case you missed a particular film. The whole thing sounds pretty fun, but it seems like getting everyone synchronized might be a bit difficult. Remember, when it comes to comedy, timing is everything.
