I could be in too. But I must admit that if we are discussing the increased activity around these parts as being a problem, what a wonderful problem we have on our hands!

I'm almost always up for mdc, but not this month, because I really want to focus on the Watchlist.  If mdc was on the watchlist (which we already did), then I'd participate.

However, there are many who participate in mdc.  One thing we need to remember that although an activity isn't as popular as it once was, such things ebb and flow.  If MDC is regular, participation will eventually go up, or if it doesn't, it's time to end it.  But it is a solid idea, and like PA says, it doesn't require much commitment.  I'd hate to see it fade away because we only have seven participants or so... seven isn't so bad.

How about we give it a couple of month's break and bring it back in June or so, that will give people time to focus on other things for the next couple of months.  Maybe a revival will drum up some more interest.  I don't want to see it go away completely either.

As long as you even get two people, it's worth it. Maybe one of those two will write a review that gets someone who did not participate, to watch the film.

PeacefulAnarchy and Corndog are game for this month and so am I. I say we do it.

Just seeing as you were discussing membership, it seems you're on hiatus...

But I'm new to the forums (and relatively so to the podcast as well), and I would happily participate in a swap of the type you outlined.  I'll be haunting the boards periodically to see if you come back!

We didn't take a break.  April MDC is going on.

We actually aren't on hiatus, we start a new thread each month, here is April's. We have already drawn for dictators, but I would be more than happy to pair up with you and swap suggestions, otherwise you can always wait along until May comes around, as I am sure we will be doing it again then too!

Corndog, I'd be totally down for that!  I like your theme, too.

So is it just any film that fits into the parameters of the theme?  Are there other restrictions?

We are pretty open. It can be a film directed by a woman, featuring a strong female character or performance, or even just a good romance. The sky is the limit. I will PM you with some options from me and we can work out what each other will be watching!

I'll add the match up to the beginning of the Enchanted April thread for you two.
