JOIN FORCES FOR FUCKING ÅMÅL!!

Postby Bjorn » Thu May 26, 2022 11:15 pm

Hi Guys!!

Ok, first things first. I saw this movie the first time in 1999. Me and some friends rented a VHS-copy, and this movie got me floored. You know what I´m talking about. I bought a VHS-copy, the book and the soundtrack. Then I got better Internet and downloaded the whole movie. I found this site, but never bacame a member. Like in 2002-2003 I got other things to do etc etc. It has always been my favorite movie since then, but I didnt se it in like 20 years. Ok, fast forward.

I´m sure you know about reaction videos on youtube. Some of them I like, some of them I dont like. There is one youtube channel "Popcorn in bed" with Cassie (her sister Carly is sometimes with her in the "shows") https://www.youtube.com/c/PopcornInBedI think thats the best reaction channel for movies. (my opinion :)) A couple of months ago I came up with this idea.
Hey!!!! No one has ever done a reaction video of Fucking Åmål on Youtube. What a shame! I was bored one evening so I streamed the movie and saw it again after ca: 20 years. And I got blown away....again. OMG!!!

Something has to be done. So I joined Patreon (https://www.patreon.com) and started to support her channel. I recomended Fucking Åmål (or Show me love is more correct, its the US after all :)) in all three ways you can do it via Patreon (a message, popcorn request and Movie/TV Suggestions) I realised that one of her suscribers was swedish so I asked him to request SML/FÅ to her, and he did that. I´ve sent like 5-6 messages to her about how great SML/FÅ is and she have replied.
The problem is that 90-95% of the suscribers are US-citizens, and 99,99%-ish of the people in the US has never heard about SML/FÅ. I guess she gets tons of suggestions every day. She has like 205000 subs. on Youtube, almost 2600 sponsors on Patreon (like 500 the last two-three months). 10500 followers on Instagram.
So I´m saying like Elin would say it: SNÄLLA (please) join Patreon and support her channel (its like 30 euro/US dollar a year or so) and recomend SML/FÅ in both ways, and send her messages on Patreon. In the FAQ is everything. Follow her on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/popcorninbed/ and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/popcorninbed and let her know about this heartbreaking, heartwarming, amazing etc movie.

SNÄLLA!!!! help me

Sounds good :D To make everything clear: :D Patreon in NOT social media. Its a site where you pay authers, movie makers, freelance journalists, youtubers etc etc. Lets say X produces podcasts. X makes an account at Patreon and the listeners can donate some cash to X. If the listeners likes what X is doing. X gets like 90 % of the money and Patreon retains 10%. The donaters can get some benefits from X.
In my/our case: "Popcorn in bed" you can suggest movies via Patreon (it "bangs louder" then from Instagram), you can vote (if you want) in different polls etc etc. :) :) :)

It goes slooowly..... So far has 4 of her patreons suggested FÅ to Cassie. its me, a swedish dude who I asked and 2 guys who commented a post from me about FÅ (they liked the movie, but I had to ask them to do it). So its my merit :)
But FÅ is climbing among foreign movies. It has past "Das boot" and "Run Lola run" on points. Soner or later she will do a reaction on a "foreign movie". She did "Amelie" like 5 months ago. And I know that she will LOOOOOOVEEE FÅ. It will hit her like emotionell avalanche (we know the movie does that right?) No reactor on Patreon/Youtube has done a reaction about this movie. (Youtubers has often an account at patreon) It´s a shame if you asks me. This movie is so underrated as you know.
Please support her channel "popcorn in bed" and let her know. Its like 30 euro/year and suggest the movie that we all love. FÅ is to good to be ignored ny reactors.

:D :D :D To day I got a new message from Cassie :D :D This message was written in a way that I know thats she had red my latest message to her. She likes the idea of doing a reaction to this movie. :) :) :) An advantage is that she have done like 200-ish reactions to movies, but only one has been non-english (the french movie Amelie) and that was is in January this year. So at least I think i´ts time for a non-english movie. Mayby maybe maybe she will do it in August. *:)* :D :) :o
