I am totally and completely hypnotized by Netflix’s Instant Watch option where anyone with a computer of a Wii or Playstation has access to a zillion streaming movies. Suddenly my life has changed, I sleep better at night, I’m getting more fiber and I find that I have become what men want and what women need. My vision is clearer, my reach longer, my capacity for watching movies has increased ten-fold. All I want to do when I talk to people is spread the gospel of Netflix streaming movies.
Yet there is a serpent in this Garden of Eden: the selection. New releases are new only if you consider anything that happened in the past 365 days “new” and for every MOON or DEFIANCE or JULIE AND JULIA there are a hundred movies like STORY OF A JUNKIE, ZONE TROOPERS, AMAZONS OF ROME and LAND OF DOOM. Some of these movies are great, but it’s hard work determining whether I’M DANCING AS FAST AS I CAN (Jill Clayburgh and Dianne Wiest in “The dramatic story of one woman’s survival in a battle for her sanity…and her life!”) is going to be worth your time.
But those who know me know that wherever there is a problem, I offer a solution and so welcome to the Netflix Streaming Safari! My jungle adventure through the wilds of Netflix Streaming Movies featuring reviews of movies that you may never have heard of but that give you far more excitement, roller skating freedom fighters, Burt Reynolds discussing “the sound of ass rape,” monster sex and hippie revolutionaries than WALL STREET 2: MONEY NEVER GOES SKIING. Just look for the NSS tag and follow my journey into the heart of rental queue darkness.
Like Patrick Swayze I will go into the
wilds with Alison Doody and bring back discoveries
for you to eat.
