Here is the list for the July 2019 Movie Gifts exchange!
You will GIVE a movie recommendation to the name AFTER yours. Please post your gift to them in a timely manner in case they need to return. You will RECEIVE a movie recommendation from the name before yours. Once you have received your gift please confirm that you have received it or notify them of a return.
Returns: You may “return” your gift if you’ve already seen it or have a visceral content concern around watching it. You do not have to give a reason for the return but please do not return just because you don’t think you’ll like it. If your gift is returned please make a new recommendation in a timely manner so it can be confirmed or returned. Any other details can be worked out between you and your gifter/ee.
Optional Theme: My Time. Relate the title to a memorable time in your life. Up to you if you want to reveal the personal connection upon giving or unwrapping. And you don’t have to use the theme (if you want to recommend Paths of Glory I’m not going to make you pretend you’re a World War I vet).
The goal is to have gifts finalized by next Monday (June 24th).
You will have a little over two weeks to watch. After watching, please do not post your reactions until the Unwrapping article (currently scheduled for Wednesday, July 10).
This list was chosen using a random list generator that claims to use “atmospheric noise” as its engine, so if you have complaints, please take them up with the universe. (I did double-check that nobody was giving to the same person as last time and I don’t believe anybody is).
So finally… The July 2019 Solute Movie Gifts Giving Chain:
Streaming / obtaining preferences listed where given. This is a good resource for seeing what services a title is available on – and it can be adjusted to other countries where needed.
