It's Sunday Lockdown Movie night! This week we're going back to January 28, 1979 to see "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"!

Supporting features from the era kick off at 7pm Melbourne time (0900 UTC) and the feature movie one hour later. There may be some followup material for the die-hards (it will not be Die Hard).

Now streaming various hits of 1978 to get you in the mood (audio only, no video clips, no chatter, good for background listening).

Next week's date has been chosen! We're staying in the 1970s, and will be watching a movie that was released sometime shortly before July 8, 1973.

@pelagikat it's just Spotify on shuffle running on my desktop. Their randomisation has never been great. Was back to back Boney M just before too. 😀

@mike OMG Mike. This sci-fi disco song is making me laugh quite a lot.

@pelagikat I know I've heard this before but I'd totally forgotten about it until now.

If someone told me this was a parody song from 2021 I'd totally believe it.

@mike I have totally forgotten the name of that brass band song but I have played it MANY times before.

@pelagikat never heard that kind before myself, as far as I recall.

@mike Haven’t seen any from the three months prior, but I recognize a few titles (Paper Moon, Soylent Green, Live and Let Die, Something Something Planet of the Apes).

@futzle we're going to do the poll tomorrow, collecting suggestions in where we discussed things previously.

Decided you get a veto on anything in the poll this week. 😀
