OTW2: Reprogram the movies

Welcome, a day or eight late and a dollar short, to the second instalment of Open Thread Weekends™.

Today we revisit a topic the Tea Makers has covered before – late-night movies. They’re kind of a wasteland at the moment, though now for the new reason that the same set of movies gets rerun over and over again. Godzilla features (cute the first time), Man Without a Past, The Good Girl, 9 to 5, Minority Report, old Hitchcock… yes, we have in fact seen those already.

If we view Mondays as foreign-film night and Thursdays as Canadian-film night (not a ghetto!), your mission is to program four or preferably eight pictures in either or both categories. Give us a nice mix of cerebral/“important” and fun/enjoyable.

If we can have a Godzilla set, then we can have a chop-socky set, an Australian set, a Swedish-detective-mystery set, something that looks like Showcase on Monday nights circa 2000 – you name it.

Remember, either foreign-movie night or Canadian-movie night or both. Limitation: Hard Core Logo may appear no more than once.

    First thing, have the movies start at 11 pm instead of so late.
    We don’t have to watch late night Leno anymore so we will watch the movies if on at a decent time like 11.
