Our next Weird Watch Party on Amazon Prime is scheduled for June 19 at 10:15 PM.
As always, we’ll be looking for RSVPs from people who plan to attend. You are free to nominate a movie to watch, but it’s no longer a requirement: if everyone is happy with the same movie choice, or with the choice between two or three, that will do. After we get the minimum five likely attendees, we’ll put up a poll (assuming we have multiple nominees). Management will break any ties. We’re open to suggestions for different starting times, dates, or methods of propagating the watch link.
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. 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.
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
