We’re settling in to alternating 366’s Weird Watch parties between Amazon Prime and Netflix, and it’s Prime’s turn this week.
The procedure will be the same as with our Netflix parties: we’re looking for five people (not counting your host Gregory J. Smalley) to comment on this post if you are interested in attending. Likely attendees may also make a nomination from the Amazon Prime catalog for a movie to watch, but not something we’ve already watched (so far, that only means no Human Lanterns). After we cross the five attendees threshold, we’ll put up a poll with all the nominations and start voting to select which film we’ll screen. The Watch Party will tentatively be scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 1 at 10:15 PM ET; feel free to suggest a different time in the comments.
Amazon Prime’s catalog of movies is larger (and less exclusive) than Netflix’s. Ed Dykhuizen’s availability spreadsheet is a good resource to check for Canonically Weird movies (look for ones marked “free w/ Prime” in the “Amazon” column). Or, do your own research and come up with a title from Amazon. Readers have also made some suggestions in our latest contest thread. Eligible movies will have a “watch party” button on their Amazon page. You must be a Prime subscriber; you don’t have to download an extension or additional software.
We will not provide tech support; you’re on your own. Help each other.
When the party is set to begin we’ll announce it in three places:
- On this site (if you’ve signed up for regular email alerts via the sidebar you’ll also get a notice that way)
- On our Facebook page
- On Twitter
Now, RSVP and make your nominations in the comments below.
