    RWBY makes allusions to many legends and stories, and some of those legends and stories have been made into movies. We're going to be trying to watch them all, one week at time.


    Hi folks! I'd like to invite you all to what will hopefully become a long running event: RWBY Movie Matinee. It was a lot of fun last week and we're doing it again this week. Sadly I forgot to announce it on the RT forums along with everywhere else, so anyone here who was really itching to watch The Wizard of Oz missed out. But I'm putting the announcements in even more places this week, and everyone and anyone is invited! Today's showing will again be at 1PM CDT/6pm UTC. We'll be continuing our advance into RWBY's allusions with 2004's Troy. Runtime is 163 minutes.

    The Left Handed Gun (1958)

    Hello everyone! RWBY Movie Matinee will again be happening this weekend at the same RWBY time zone and same RWBY Discord channel. The showing remains open to all, and will again be at 1PM CDT/6pm UTC. This time we head out west to meet the morally complicated and misunderstood outlaw Billy the Kid in 1958's The Left Handed Gun, starring a young Paul Newman in his breakout role. Runtime is 102 minutes.

    Once again, RWBY Movie Matinee will be happening this weekend at the same RWBY time zone and same RWBY Discord channel: 1PM CDT/6pm UTC Everyone and anyone is invited! We definitely don't start the film right at 1:00pm, and there's an allowance for initial chatting and technical difficulty, but due to some extreme tardiness we've been having, please don't expect us to wait later than 1:30pm to begin.


    This week we've decided to do something a little different and rather than making a decision about what to watch in advance, we're going to choose the film based on who shows up. We've got a viewing list of close to twenty films RWBY makes reference to, and we'll pick something from that based on the mood and what people have already seen.

    This week we are finally going to tackle what I consider the single most important work of this entire project: The Snow Queen. Most things RWBY makes major references to are fairly familiar to the general public, but The Snow Queen has by far the biggest gap between how much RWBY alludes to it and how familiar with it people are. We're probably going to be watching the classic 1957 Russian animated adaptaion of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale epic, with subtitles, but if we have time I'm hoping we can immediately follow this up with Disney's 2013 adaptation Frozen, which utterly butchered the plot and supporting cast but made the two central characters much much more interesting, and which RWBY seems to be drawing on in equal measure.

    The movie for this week isn't set and we'll pick something based on who shows up, but Disney's Frozen is pretty likely. Besides that, we've got a viewing list of close to twenty films RWBY makes reference to, and we'll pick something from that based on the mood and what people have already seen.
