Movie Chat returns this weekend with a double-bill of “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.”
Join us Sunday on our IRC server at 2 pm EST when we pop our copies of ESB into the DVD player. After the usual confusion, at around 2 pm EST we’ll all press play on our individual players and proceed to cheer and jeer (or discuss and argue, if you like!) the finer points of the film.
We plan to take a break midway through the film, to allow for stretching of fingers and backs. Barliman will be on hand to serve drinks and snacks (and to enforce the house rules).
“Return of the Jedi” will follow at 5:30 p.m.
