From here on out, we’ll be changing the way we schedule Netflix and Amazon Prime watch parties. We’re going to take suggestions and votes in the comments and not using the public poll anymore (since to many people are casually voting and not showing up, diluting the votes of actual attendees). How this will work in practice remains to be seen, but we’ll muddle through it. If you’d like to attend our watch party, then the important thing is to RSVP in the comments, where you can make a screening suggestion or just say you plan to be there.
As always, we’re looking for five likely attendees before officially scheduling.
The first order of business is scheduling. Following our normal rotation, our next watch party would fall on July 3. Some people may have plans for July 4, however, so we suggest rescheduling for July 10 instead.
Also, we’re open to changing our regularly scheduled time. We’ve been doing Saturday nights starting around 10:15 PM ET, but if another time would be more convenient we’re open to suggestions.
The Canonically Weird movies on Netflix that we haven’t yet screened yet are A Clockwork Orange (1971), Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010). Feel free to nominate any of these, or ignore them in favor of other selections. Since we’ve rolled over into a new year, we could technically decide to watch something we’ve seen before (if it’s still on Netflix). For reference, the movies we’ve already screened are 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), Cadaver (2020), Being John Malkovich (1999), Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil (2017), My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea (2016), Freaks (2018), Five Elements Ninjas (1982), Await Further Instructions (2018), and Come to Daddy (2019) .
To participate, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser, and the TeleParty (formerly “Netflix Party”) extension.
Okay, now join us in discussion in the comments.
