Yes its my second time as host of #MTOS and on Sunday the 25th of May, I am covering the topic of Tv and film. More precisely its when film and television crossover and adapt each other as well your favorites.

For those who don’t know, Movie Talk On Sunday will be all about Cinematic Experiences on May 11, 2014 starting at sharp 20:00 UK Time wherein after every 10 minute interval a new question will be thrown out at you, gently, to discuss, also gently.

Please do use the hashtag #MTOS when replying to the tweets with relation to the chat. Since many people follow the hashtag, trust me, it is a great way to meet and interact with fellow cinephiles on twitter. Also, do mention the question number you are referring to so everyone knows what you are talking about.
The questions are as follows

 

1 I know this MTOS but be honest, what do you prefer more, Films or TV shows?

2 With the current success of Fargo on the television screen, Is the idea of a TV adaption of a classic film sacrilege to your ears or are they a good idea?

3 With Game of Thrones aiming for a big screen finale, does TV have a place in the cinema?

4 Many of our favourite  childhood TV shows have been adapted into films, what has been the best one in your opinion?

5 24 is back after failed attempts for a film, do you think it will ever happen and will the change of formate work?

6 So tell me what’s worst cinematic take on a TV show?

7 Who is your favourite current TV star who should/will have a great film career

8 Out of the more recent TV shows, which can you see getting the Hollywood treatment in years to come

9 Does television have more of an impact on popular culture more than films today?

10 Finally what film or franchise would you make a TV show out of?

Remember to follow me on Twitter @CinemaTronix and see you on Sunday 25th May.

So the time has come for me to take on my first ever role as host of MTOS on 16th February 2014. As anyone who follows me on twitter @Cinematronix knows that a common complaint I have is that a film is too long (ahem…. WolfofWallStreet…) so i decided to put up or shut up with my first topic which will be about the running length of films.

So this coming sunday I shall tweet 10 questions with the hashtag #MTOS and your mission (if you choose to accept) will be to reply, using the same hashtag. The questions are as follows.

1 In your opinion, how long should a film be?

2 Do films around the 3 hour mark put you off watching at the cinema and wait for the home release?

3  What justifies a long running time for you?

4 They say comedies should be 90 minutes. Is that true?

5 What film is the worst offender of being too long for you personally?

6 What’s your favourite film that has a really long running time?

7 Should cinemas bring back intervals to give audience a break ?

8 What film or films felt too short and Is that even possible?

9 Do you think it matters to general audiences whether a film is 90 minutes or 180 minutes?

10 Why do you think that blockbusters seem longer today than they where 15 20 years ago? Has anything changed?

So thats your lot. Please be take part and follow @MovieTOS and check out the blog http://movietalkonsunday.blogspot.co.uk/ for future topics and hosting slots and see you this coming Sunday..
