NETFLIX PARTY ANNOUNCEMENT - POSSIBLE SWITCH TO AMAZON PRIME?

Hi ONTD! This is an announcement post for this weekend's NETFLIX PARTY...or is it gonna be an AMAZON PRIME WATCH PARTY?! I recently discovered that Amazon Prime Video offers a Watch Party feature, which works similarly to Netflix Party, only it's within the Amazon website, and not a third party browser add-on! The main downside, is it's currently in Beta mode, and only available to US Amazon Prime members.

I have included a poll below to gauge interest in switching platforms for this week as a trial, with perhaps alternating weeks going forward. Movie time remains at 10 PM ET currently, until I am done with my C****s B****u job, then we can go back to 9 PM ET. Fridays/Saturdays can be alternated if that works best for people.

Some great movie titles available on Amazon Prime Video that we could potentially watch together include:

Clue - my favorite movie of all time, and I need this to happen ASAP!
Knives Out - my new favorite movie, a la Clue.
The Birdcage
The Entire Twilight Saga because that shit is fun to watch as a group, don't pretend it's not.
Hollow Man
Dirty Dancing
Steel Magnolias, so we can all cry together
The Cabin In The Woods
Serenity - I need this to happen, that movie must be seen to be believed.
