Netflix is just about the best $10 I spend a month. i love movies and wasn’t renting very many when I had to drive to Blockbuster and deal with getting the movie returned on time and seriously MOVIES COST $5 NOW.
So I discovered Netflix, and the joy of getting a movie when I get the mail. It’s how I watched the first three seasons of Dexter and am catching up on all the movies I really should have seen at some point but never did – FYI, not all that impressed by The Big Lebowski. How dare I, right?
Right now I’ve got about 120 movies/discs from seasons of TV shows in my queue. Among them, old stuff like Pulp Fiction – never seen it, I’M SORRY – and newer stuff like Inglorious Basterds. Then there’s all those TV shows people told me I need to watch – Entourage, Six Feet Under, Eastbound and Down, Arrested Development.
The other day, I was checking out my queue to see what’s next after I eventually watch the DVD that’s been sitting on my TV – The Changeling, if you’re curious – and stumbled upon the suggestions/recommendations SOMEONE at Netflix puts together when you take the time to say “hey, I liked this movie,” or “the only way I’d watch this again is if you strapped me to a chair and taped my eyes open.” Below, you’ll see some of my recommendations, based on the movies I liked in the past, and all I can say is WHAT?
‘Cause if you like movies about prostitutes, you’ll love this cartoon about a rebellious young mermaid who gets her voice taken away by an octopus. And The Little Mermaid is TOTALLY similar to Sex and the City Season 2. I mean, in that season Big moves to Paris and in Little Mermaid, Prince Eric’s. chef. is. French…?
