NETFLIX PARTY #11 NOMINATIONS PHASE

People continue to show up to watch weird movies and we haven’t quite exhausted Netflix’s catalogue yet, so here we go with week 11.

You know the drill by now. We’re asking for nominations for a movie to watch partly because we love making polls, but mainly as a means to gauge interest. If we get five suggestions from people planning to attend, then we’ll know it’s worth hosting.

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, or Between Worlds.

We’ll tentatively set aside Jun 6 at 10:15 PM EST for this one. If you have feedback suggesting a different start time we’ll listen.

Just like previous weeks, we’ll open it up to reader suggestions until we get five or more candidates, then put up a poll to vote on which movie to screen. Only films in Netflix’s catalog are eligible. We don’t have to watch a Canonically Weird movie together, but just for your convenience, we’re reasonably sure these are all the (previously unscreened by us) ones available on the service at the moment: Kung Fu Hustle (2004), The Lobster (2015), Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), A Serious Man (2009), Sin City (2005), Swiss Army Man (2016), The Wicker Man (1973), and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). Feel free to nominate any of these, or ignore them in favor of other selections.

To join, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser, and the Netflix Party extension.

  1. Having (just barely) gotten to the Cage-stravaganza this past Saturday, I’ll go back to nominating “Sin City” for now.

    1. Jake, I’ll throw “The Humanity Bureau” a vote if you follow me back on Letterboxd. I’m that Woodpecker fellow, and yes, I did search for recent reviews of Between Worlds to see if I could find any of y’all.

  2. We didn’t get enough posts this week to justify a poll, so I suggest we change the Party to once every two weeks. Frankly, I didn’t expect weekly screenings to last as long as they have. If everyone who was interested this week comes back next week, we’ll only need one more interested participant.

    1. It’s my suspicion that the real reason is everyone knows there’s no topping “Between Worlds”.

      (Still, hopefully we’ll see each-other another week down the road!)
