NETFLIX PARTY #13 INTEREST CHECK

Last week’s Netflix Party #12 was a success, so we’re going to stick with the bi-weekly schedule for the time being (unless there’s an outcry to return to weekly screenings). Next Saturday would be the July 4 holiday, anyway. Therefore, our next party will be scheduled for Saturday, July 11 at 10:15 PM.

We’ll be looking for five movie screening nominations from people who plan to attend. After we get the minimum five nominations and likely attendees, we’ll put up a poll.

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, or The Aerial [La Antena]. Only films in Netflix’s U.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. Although as host my vote won’t count towards the 5 attendees/film nominations, I will suggest “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” because it’s scheduled to leave Netflix at the end of July and this may be our last chance to watch it together. (This movie has been on and off the service, however, and could well return later.)

  2. “The Humanity Bureau”. Though it would have been sweet to have Gene Wilder and Nicolas Cage in a movie together.

  3. Still looking for two more attendees and one more nomination, but I also have new news to announce.

    Amazon Prime has joined the watch party bandwagon: https://techcrunch.com/2020/06/29/amazon-prime-video-introduces-watch-party-a-social-coviewing-experience-included-with-prime/

    This should increase the number of movies we’re able to screen, but change the roster of people who can attend. We’ll see if/how we integrate this in the future. Now back to the nominations.

    1. Holy smoke, this would open up a massive number of movies. They’ve been snapping up B- and Z-movie rights like it was going out of style, in addition to posting more and more recent oddities.
