NOVEMBER AMAZON PRIME WEIRD WATCH PARTY: NOMINATIONS

Our next scheduled Weird Watch Party on Amazon Prime is scheduled for Nov. 28 at 10:15 PM.

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

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

We’ll take nominations through the week and put up a poll a week from today. Make your nominations in the comments below.

  1. Three Extremes
    Tale of 2 Sisters
    David and Lisa
    all on Amazon

    (I am not sure if you guys have already watched these?)

    1. I’ll add those to the poll except for Tale of 2 Sisters (it requires a separate subscription). No, we haven’t watched any of them. I’m not keeping a running list of Prime titles like I do with Netflix ones because there’s so much more to choose from on Prime I think repeats are unlikely.

  2. Originally thought of putting it in the Suggest A Movie thread but then wondered what the thoughts were on having a short before the main attraction.

    David Firths latest short Sock Six has been released. Looks like it’s towards the darker end of his output.

    Trailer is here:

    The full film is up on youtube for free on his official channel. Runs approximately 17 minutes.

    That or it’s over to the Saturday Shorts.

    1. We did have a short, once, but the short needs to be available on either Netflix or Amazon Prime for us to screen it together. So, “Sock Six” will just have to wait for Saturday Shorts to pick it up. Thanks for the heads up though!

  3. For the moment, I am going to nominate Renegade (Blueberry). It’s based on a Moebius comic and described as an acid western. I don’t necessarily like the Prime visual presentation, but think it’s worth considering.
