Netflix Notes – “Oscar Bait” Edition

With this latest batch, I’m all caught up again. Although, as I write this, I’ve got Valkyrie staring me down meaning the circle continues. Here’s a helpful hint for any of you employing Netflix to feed your film habit. I’ve found that if you mail a movie out on Monday, you’ll almost aways receive that…

Netflix Notes – “When In Bruges…” Edition

Now that all of that nagging TV is done, I’m back to provide some frequent updates from the world of cinema. It seems my Netflix queue stays at a constant 100 – despite my best efforts to watch 2 – 3 flicks per week. Dammit – If only Hollywood would go on strike or something…

Netflix Notes – ‘Nordic Nightmare Edition’

I’m back with another run of Netflix Notes – having spent the last few weeks catching up on some more flicks from my queue. I seem to be averaging 2 – 3 flicks a week, and yet my backlog always seems to hover in the 90’s. Either I’ve got to stop adding films to the…

Netflix Notes – “The Life of Reilly” Edition

With this piece, I’m all caught up. Although in the time it took me to write and publish the last 4 posts, I’ve got enough of a back log to get right back on the horse again. A Blogger’s work is never done. If there’s a theme in this last batch of flicks, it has…

Nowadays, every straight dude is in a Bromance or holding hard to a Man Crush and completely fine with it….

  This installment of Netflix Notes has absolutely nothing to do with good ol’ Sly and that big hunka’ cheese he served hungry fans salivating for cinematic arm-wrestling at long last. Still, I couldn’t resist running with the pic (in the same manner that I kicked off my 28 Days Later posts with a pic…

Netflix Notes – ‘The Fruity Pirate’ Edition

Longtime readers of this site know that once upon a time, I was captured in a photo alongside one fine, upstanding individual who went out for Halloween dressed as a manly scalawag only to find himself dubbed “The Fruity Pirate” when the pic surfaced on these pages. Of course, it didn’t help his cause that…

Netflix Notes – “Bring Out Your Dead” Edition

This was a weird crop of movies. When I made my initial queue way back, I just kept adding movies as I recalled I hadn’t seen them. Essentially, I would just wrack my brain, saying “OK – What else haven’t you seen?” and then just add them as they popped in my head. Since then,…
