Might be interested. Some weeks anyway. Not usually that big on movies.

I fiddled with the movie list some and came up with a new lineup that tries to keep it under 4 hours per week - I haven't checked all the movies' run times, so there might be a few more that run long and will need to be de-paired, but this seems like a closer approximation to reasonable, anyway.

1 BBC Plant Earth (viewers' choice of four of the eleven)
2 80s & earlier Disney movies (viewers' choice)
3 Jurassic Park 1 & 2
4 Jurassic Park 3 & 4

1 The Fifth Element & Hackers
2 Holiday - no movie
3 Neverending Story & Dark Crystal
4 The Brave Little Toaster & Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

1 The Matrix & Pacific Rim
2 90s & later Disney movies (viewers' choice)
3 Finding Nemo & Finding Dory (Finding Dory won't be out even in theaters next March, but I want to save the slot for it. For next year, maybe Shrek instead?)
4 Holiday - no movie

1 Firefly 1-4
2 Firefly 5-8
3 Firefly 9-12
4 Firefly 13-14 & Serenity

1 Into the Woods & Princess Bride
2 Holiday - no movie
3 Dogma & Who Framed Roger Rabbit
4 Fried Green Tomatoes & Sister Act

1 Princess Mononoke & Spirited Away
2 Pirates of the Caribbean 1 & 2
3 Pirates of the Caribbean 3 & 4
4 Holiday - no movie

1 Iron Man & The Incredible Hulk
2 Iron Man 2 & Thor
3 Captain America & The Avengers
4 Iron Man 3 & Thor 2

1 Winder Soldier & GotG
2 Holiday - no movie
3 Age of Ultron & Ant Man
4 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy & The Lorax

1 Avatar (long)
2 Back to the Future 1 & 2
3 Back to the Future 3 & Free Willy
4 Holiday - no movie

1 2001: A Space Odyssey (long)
2 Home & Ice Age
3 Hellboy & Batman Begins
4 The Dark Knight (long)

1 The Dark Knight Rises (long)
2 Holiday - no movie
3 Dragonheart & The Water Horse
4 The Land Before Time & Wall-E

1 An American Tail & Flight of the Navigator
2 Willy Wonka & Time Bandits
3 Gremlins 1 & 2
4 Holiday - no movie

left over movies from the original list
A.I. Artificial Intelligence
Batteries Not Included
Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle
History of the World, Part I
I, Robot
Independence Day
Little Buddha
Pan's Labyrinth
Wizard of Oz

Assuming that works for everybody, I'm thinking I'll put zipped copies of the files for the week on my web server for people to download, and we can try Gaze to see how it works in practice. Timewise, I'm thinking try to finish up by 10 est, so we'd need to start at about 6pm eastern time - does that work for everyone who's interested in Dragonheart and The Water Horse? Note that this will be not this upcoming Saturday but the one after that.

MyCircle doesn't require me to pay anything to upload files (and I didn't pay anything in the past). Unless it's size-limited? I haven't tried movies, only TV episodes. But movie seems to be working as well. The url I'm doing this at is

Gaze looks like they've put more effort into the site, though, so it's probably better if it works.

MyCircle seems to only allow uploading via MyCloud, which looks like a paid thing. Possibly there's more information about free options once you've signed up? I haven't.

Gaze doesn't do uploading at all; if we use that I'll need to distribute the movie files separately, which isn't a big deal for me but is an extra step for everyone. (When you join the room it asks you for the location of the file on your own machine; the advantage of this over VLC or whatever is that if someone needs to pause it we stay in sync.)

MyCloud is not paid. At least for me. Does it look like this to you?

Nope, that url looks the same as the home page to me so far.

Edit: Yup! Awesome.
