Poll: Sunday Screening #2

Thanks for participating in the first Sunday Screening. Please continue to comment on Singin’ in the Rain with your thoughts. We are a bit pressed on time to get the next movie selected, so please vote for one of the movies listed below today. Also, write in a movie so that we can add it to our list. Voting will close at 7pm Pacific time tonight.

So, what are you guys thinking? Orson Welles in “Carol Reed’s Classic Thriller”, or Peter O’Toole, Alec Guinness, and Anthony Quinn in “The Desert Classic”(1983 Video Release)?


The Third Man is available on Netflix Streaming.
Lawrence of Arabia is available on iTunes for Purchase.

    A random assortment of suggestions for future screenings:

    A Kurosawa film (I’d suggest Ikiru, The Hidden Fortress, and/or Rashomon)
    Any number of Hitchcock films (perhaps Foreign Correspondent, Suspicion, Saboteur, To Catch a Thief, The Trouble with Harry…)
    All Quiet on the Western Front
    Double Indemnity
    The Big Sleep
    The Maltese Falcon
    The Grapes of Wrath
    From Here to Eternity
    High Noon
    All About Eve
    The Desperate Hours
    The Night of the Hunter
    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
    Bonnie and Clyde
    Chinatown
    Five Easy Pieces
    The Sting
    Day for Night
    The Deer Hunter

      Thanks for the list, we’re trying to come up with a good way to organize/priortize possible upcoming movies. We’ll definitely work this list into that, there isn’t anything on here that I wouldn’t want to watch or re-watch (more of the former).

        Don’t forget, it’s not necessarily about what we WANT to watch, but what we feel we SHOULD watch. I’m thinking the best way to approach it is to have a variety of genres and styles to choose from each week. Or, we could have a poll of a master list to choose the polls, but that could get pretty convoluted.

          I think skipping between genre’s is a good idea, to keep it fresh. I also think if we could come up with a rating system that is tied into the AFI 100 Greatest Movie list, and some other movie ranking sources that would be awesome. I think that would require some number crunching though…

          • November 17, 2009 at 4:34 PM

            And the AFI doesn’t take into account foreign films, which is a hurdle.

        Awesome. Also, this link might be a useful source to help organize the Sunday Screenings list:
