We’re currently sticking to our plan of one Netflix and one Amazon Prime watch party per month. It’s Netflix’s turn.

We’re open to suggestions for different starting times, dates, or methods of propagating the watch link.

Our next Netflix Party will be scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12 at 10:15 PM. We’ll take nominations for movies to screen in the comments on this post up until next Sunday (Dec. 6), then put up a voting poll.

The Canonically Weird movies on Netflix that we haven’t yet screened yet are Being John Malkovich (1999), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Kung Fu Hustle (2004)Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), A Serious Man (2009), and Swiss Army Man (2016). Feel free to nominate any of these, or ignore them in favor of other selections. You can nominate something you nominated before, but not something we watched in a previous party: so no The Platform, April and the Extraordinary World, The Bad Batch, Skins [Pieles], Under the Skin, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Enemy, A Ghost Story, Escape from the ‘Liberty’ Cinema, Between Worlds, Buster’s Mal Heart, The Aerial [La Antena], The Endless, The Wicker Man (1973)Murder Party (2007), I Lost My Body (2019), I’m Thinking of Ending Things (2020), We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2018), or Cadaver (2020).

To participate, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser, and the Netflix Party (now TeleParty) extension.

Make your nominations in the comments below.


  1. While I’d be interested in watching a weird-bad Christmas movie–I bet there’s a doozy hiding somewhere in Netflix’s catalog–I’m going to start off with two different nominations: Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Both are leaving Netflix at the end of December, so this will be our last chance to catch them together.

  2. Just in case not everyone got enough dance-stylings last time, I’m going to nominate “Kung-Fu Hustle”.

  3. I’m going to return to one I’ve suggested multiple times and still haven’t watched: “The Forest of Love.”

    Sorry to all those who wanted something lighter after “Climax.” I’m in a dark mood recently, despite the season.

    1. Yeah, I’d say that “Forest of Love” is darker than “Climax” — though at least it doesn’t having any Toddler-In-Trouble nonsense.

  4. Advantageous

    Netflix is a little tougher than Prime. I searched the Christmas movies, by the way, but can’t imagine we’d want to watch any of their numerous selections featuring princes and/or princesses. I think one movie might have been called “A Princess for Prince Christmas, Princess.”
