Feed the Queue #103

Here are the results of last week’s poll.

  1. Brief Encounter (1946)
  2. The Letter (1940)
  3. The More the Merrier (1943)
  4. The Little Foxes (1941)
  5. Leave Her to Heaven (1945)
  6. Three Comrades (1938)

Brief Encounter wins and goes into my queue.

Here’s the deal: every week, I will be calling for suggestions of films to be added to my Netflix queue. Each person makes one suggestion and one alternate (in case I have seen one of your suggestions). The next week, when I call for new suggestions, we begin a one-week voting period to select the film to be placed immediately into my Netflix queue to be reviewed the weekend after (because I’ll already have my Netflix queue selections for the coming weekend). Then, you’ll find out what I thought in my weekly Morning After feature on Monday morning.

Sometimes a genre gets stuck in the rotation and it makes for a rough viewing schedule. Starting this week, I’m going to be asking for suggestions that fit a specific genre so each week can be a bit spicy. The genre or event listed each week will be posted at the end of this post.

To help decide what to pick, here is a list of what I’ve seen (or at least that I have personally logged).
