Lycos Cinema - Free Online Films (For Riffing?)
« on: June 19, 2008, 08:28:23 AM »


Just a heads up that Lycos Cinema offers a number of films for free. Apparently you can schedule a viewing party which allows multiple users to watch the movie at the same time. There's even a chatroom for making comments, or riffs, on the film as it's playing.

I haven't used the service myself, but the selection of free films doesn't seem half bad... actually they seem horrible. But in terms of riffing, they're pure gold. Brainiac anyone?

Anyway users can come and go to any viewing as they wish. So if someone's running late, they can join in without disrupting the entire process. And if you want to connect via Skype on your own while watching the movie... you can have voice chat.

Just an FYI if anyone is interested.
