This forum is for everyone to voice their opinion on how they think this club can be improved. Not every idea can be acted upon, but the ideas themselves are very helpful in allowing admins to see what the members might want out of the club.

  • We are attempting to come up with a few more ideas to help people find great Japanese Cinema in an interesting way. One of those ideas is the director and movie spotlights. We were putting some ideas on the table like creating a nomination system. Where as members can nominate a movie/director/Actor/Actress. The most nominations for each category at the end of the week will get a spotlight for members to discuss and vote on whether they think there work is noteworthy. From there we'd appreciate some input on how we should proceed. Meaning, should we create new relations list forums or just spotlight them for discussion? All input is helpful.

  • Other ideas we have been discussing is whether or not members would like to get mass messages. It is very time consuming without the club messaging functioning so we'd like to put a list together of members who would like to be informed on what movies/directors/actors are being showcased.

  • Should spotlights be Weekly?bi-monthly?Monthly?

  • Do members want more genre specific? Example: spotlights showcasing favorite j-horror, noir, action, yakuza, drama, samurai, etc.) or period directors (classic, new wave, contemporary etc.)

  • Do club members want an Irc channel to discuss Japanese Cinema and just get to know each other a little better?

  • Should the movie spotlight be related to the director? Each week a new movie from the same director? Or should they be different?

  • Is there any interest in the idea of creating a Hiden Gem's nomination forum and spotlight?

These are just a few ideas we are curious about at this point. Please help us figure out a way to make this club better.

As for the Movie of the Week idea, I think you guys are doing a good job so far. I don't think it should be connected with the Director Spotlight, because people with negative opinions towards the director being presented will have a hard time keeping their interest with the club. Thus, the Movie of the Week should be, in all honesty, very random.

Thank you for your input JReitan.

So are you happy with us just picking the movies randomly every week? Do you think members like yourself might want to nominate movies to share with everyone in club?

Mm, I think having a movie nominated every week is a bit much if you don't have enough active members. I don't know how many active members are in this club, but you should do a count/estimation and decide from there.

Although I do know I'd be up for it if there were such a thing.

I'm glad to here that you'd participate JReitan. Maybe four or five is enough for now. I'm hoping that perhaps we can get others to join in if a few begin. Who knows right? It wouldn't hurt to try it out. If it doesn't work out then at least it will still be a nomination process for the few active members.

Someone still working on those member cards?
If you are a fan of (or simply interested in) Japanese films
then please join the Cinema of Japan club! Thank you (:

I'm sorry, no, bloodlover. Touka was doing that... and Touka has just disappeared from Cinema of Japan.

I am a member of this club. Unfortunately, I can only get by this site occasionally. But this club is just what I need right now because I'm watching a lot of NetFlix movies, particularly Japanese ones--and there's lots to choose from.

Is there any way for the club to send me some kind of notice when its featured film changes? An email to mancemart@lavibit.com would be best, but a notice internal to this site would work too.

I've searched this site and not found a way to get this kind of notice.

Thanks to the club for being here.

Movies of the Week are selected and posted Sunday nights/ Monday Mornings, meaning around or 12:00am Pacific Standard Time or a little earlier Sunday nights. Just check back weekly to find out what's been voted in.

If you're making a suggestion for mass messaging of the new movie of the week, we'd need a few more people's input before we implement more administrative work. So far participation has been lacking on nominating films, but hopefully as more members discover we are active again that will change. I messaged a few of the members who have posted in forums in the past, but participation is still very low. Not sure at this point if people would just rather the admins choose movie selections. In any case people do have the opportunity at this point to select movies they think are exemplary or interesting enough that they want to share them with everyone.

I see--more participation is needed. When I signed up in passing one day I just assumed this club would be very active, because MyAnimeList would seem to be a prime place to find lovers of Japanese movies. I frankly was planning to treat this club like a mailing list and wake up from my slumbers only when something in the flow of information caught my fancy. That is because I've always had a poor memory, and have trouble keeping up with anything unless it comes to me with flags raised. I see above that someone was advocating a weekly or monthly mailing to update us. If possible, this would be ideal for me as a member for the above reason.

I will now examine the club's page more carefully and get more detail about how it works and how I can participate.
