Feed the Queue #96

Here are the results of last week’s poll.

  1. An Education (2009)
  2. In the Valley of Elah (2007)
  3. A Single Man (2009)
  4. Frozen River (2008)

With a tie in this topic, I’ll go with the film I’d rather see, though I’m disappointed A Single Man wasn’t in contention. An Education 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.

    Broadcast News (Holly Hunter, 1987). I’ll keep pushing this one until its picked.
    Howards End (Emma Thompson, 1993)

    1. You Can Count on Me
    2. In America

    Equally passionate about both movies, but gave the nod to YCCOM due to stronger lead actress performance.

    1. I saw Howards End in the last year.

      1. OK, replace it with The Fabulous Baker Boys (Michelle Pfeiffer, 1989)

  3. Rankings:
    1. In America
    2. YouCcan Count on Me

    Mr. & Mrs. Bridge (Joanne Woodward)
    Working Girl (Melanie Griffith)

  4. 1 In America
    2 You Can Count on Me

    Two For The Road
    Don’t Look Now

    1. Neither Two for the Road (1967) nor Don’t Look (1973) Now featured Oscar nominated performances and are form the wrong decade.
