Feed the Queue #20

It was a close one this week with second place one point behind first. But Drama wins out over comedy The Producers. Midnight Express has been added to my queue. I will receive it next week to be watched that subsequent weekend (or watched this weekend if I have time) and reviewed in The Morning After to be posted on November 15.

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.

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

Full List of Films I’ve Seen (some titles missing, especially those already viewed during this series)
Here’s what you need to post today (and through next Wednesday):

  1. Below, please provide your suggestions to add to my Netflix queue.

  1. It’s gonna be a difficult choice next week, as all your new suggestions are terrific; I’m happy to see others have joined the cause.

    Suggestions:
    Panic in the Streets (1950)
    Monsieur Verdoux (1947)

    Preference:
    The Big Lebowski
    Ball of Fire
    Meet John Doe

  2. Tripp, I hope the version of The Picture of Dorian Gray you are recommending is the 1945 version.

    I also think you might want to reconsider your recommendation of The Magnificent Ambersons as the only one available on Netflix is the TV remake, not the 1942 classic.

    My new suggestions: Seven Days in May (1964), The Night of the Iguana (1964).

    Rankings: Meet John Doe, Ball of Fire, The Big Liebowski.

  3. Suggestions: The Magnificent Ambersons/The Portrait of Dorian Gray
    Rankings: Meet John Doe, The Big Lebowski, Ball of Fire

    1. And if you are referring to The Picture of Dorian Gray from 1945 as Magilla mentioned, then I’ve already seen it.

  4. 1. Suggestions: Walkabout (1971), Le Cercle Rouge (1970)
    2. I haven’t seen the two Cooper/Stanwyck pictures, but I like The Big Lebowski.
