Feed the Queue #80

Here are the results of last week’s poll.

  1. Aliens (1986)
  2. House of Wax (1953)
  3. San Francisco (1936)
  4. Big (1988)

Aliens 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).

Full List of Films I’ve Seen (updated through 3/10/11; a small number of titles may be missing still)
Here’s what you need to post today (and through next Wednesday):

  1. Below, please provide your suggestions to add to my Netflix queue.
  2. Next, please rate each of the following entries in order of preference. Item 1 will be most preferred, 2 next most preferred and so forth.
  • Adam’s Rib (1949)
  • Judgment at Nuremberg (1961)
  • A Matter of Life and Death (1946)
  • The Verdict (1982)

Add a Comment
  1. Recommendations:
    Gilda (1946)
    The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)

    1. A Matter of Life and Death (A+)
    2. Adam’s Rib (B+)
    3. Judgment at Nuremberg (B)
    4. The Verdict (B)

  2. I think it’s femmes fatale (fatal women) as opposed ot femme fatales, but whaterver…

    The Blue Angel (1930) German language version, which is slightly deifferent/more provovactive than the English version made at the same time

    Sea of Love

    Rankings (same as Mike Kelly’s this week):
    1. Judgment at Nuremberg
    2. The Verdict
    3. A Matter of Life and Death (aka Stairway to Heaven)
    4. Adam’s Rib

    1. Yes, it should be femmes fatale, but I was in a rush when I wrote that, so I’ll just edit it to fix.

  3. Aargh! Just now saw that you had already seen BOTH of my recommendations from last week. I would have suggested more movies.

    1. I know. I need to find time to update my list of seen movies…this is just a too-busy period for me.

  4. Great sub-genre. Hope you will return to it occasionally as there are many good ones to recommend. You have already seen two of the best femme fatales: Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity and Jane Greer in Out of the Past. I’ll recommend one from the classic period and one neo-noir

    The Killers (1946 – Ava Gardner)
    Body Heat (1981 – Kathleen Turner)

    Rankings: Once again, hard to separate

    1. Judgment at Nuremberg
    2. The Verdict
    3. A Matter of Life and Death (aka Stairway to Heaven)
    4. Adam’s Rib
