Thanks for taking a peek at this, my humble attempt to guide you past that awful, head-gouging moment when you realize you've seen every movie ever made. It happens to all of us:
"What do you want to watch?"
"I dunno. What do you want to watch?"
"Let's see what's on Netflix."
[Forty-five minutes and several heated discussions later]
"Forget it, we've seen everything!"
"Wait...what about that one?"
"Nude Nuns with Big Guns?"
"Well? Have you seen it?"
"I just remembered, I need to get my teeth cleaned."
[A sudden whoosh followed by a cut-out human silhouette in the door]
"Hey, wait for me!"
Of course, you don't have to be a Netflix Instant subscriber to find value in the reviews here, but given the hit-and-miss nature of the company's online catalog, I thought it would be fun to help others make informed choices about what's currently streaming. Along with semi-weekly reviews of notable movies and TV shows, I'll also be providing updated lists of what's new on Instant, what's coming soon, and (crucially) what's about to expire. For a more considered look at what this site is about, be sure to take at a look at the What's It All About? page.
Naturally I don't expect everyone to like everything I recommend. But I'm hoping that by providing a proper context for each of my picks, you can decide if that particular title is for you--or at the very least come away having learned something (or, with any luck, been entertained).
Feel free to post comments, questions and suggestions at the bottom of each post. For now I plan to leave the comment sections unmoderated and without a proof-of-human security wall. But if it gets to the point where I'm receiving too much spam, or if discussions descend to name-calling and "Your mama!" taunts, I'll have to whip a little Big Bro on everyone
Okay, I think that covers the basics. Enjoy the blog, and happy viewing!
