This week, the League of Extraordinary Bloggers was asked to post their TV or movie watch lists. I started retyping the list of movies on my Netflix account before it dawned on me that there had to be an easier way. Voila! Screen capture!
Obviously, I’ve seen some of these movies, and may never get around to watching some of the others, but the whole idea of a watch list is that it’s a place to put things that you might some day be in the mood to plunk down on the couch for two hours and finally watch. I’ve been down with a nasty cold for over a week now and spent the long snowy weekend watching a ton of movies. My illness-induced movie marathon included the Lord of the Rings extended cut trilogy, Sergio Leone’s Clint Eastwood trilogy, Unbreakable, Willow, Red Dawn, Goodfellas, and Terminator 2. As you can see, I waste no time when it comes to time off.
I really enjoy mining Netflix for the diamonds in the dust like Trollhunter, Ip Man, or Tomorrow, When the War Began. Okay, these might not be great movies, but they’re definitely worth two hours of your time. Looking at my list, the kinds of movies I enjoy is fairly obvious. Have you found a Netflix gem that I should check out?
