2004.1215.1057::Help me clean my Netflix queue: Poll 2
[ ]
As previously described, here's the next 90 movies in my queue. Choose one movie from each grouping. If you think a movie is a particular stinker, throw it in the comments. If you don't have an Livejournal account to vote with, throw it in the comments.

By the way, while going to your buddy's place and playing Soul Calibur II for almost twelve hours may be neither productive nor really all that good for you, it sure is damnably fun.

[User Picture]Big props to Basketball Diaries. It put in a major motion picture one of my favorite songs, "People Who Died".

Skip Summer of Sam! One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

[User Picture]Existenz is fucking horrible. It was in Ollie's queue at one point. you should ask him about the fucking miserable torture when we tried to watch it at Rob's one night. Even Rob has picked better movies.

[User Picture]I was there. That movie has been in my queue since before that night, so I guess you know how long it's been since I've gone through the queue...

[User Picture]Dude, I'm confused. Are these movies you haven't seen? Being the Luddite that I am, I don't know how Netflix works. Hell, I don't even have a DVD player.
But anyway, there are some movies I didn't choose because there was something I really likes in the same group, so I'm going to recommend them here.
Sweet Hereafter is a wonderful movie, even though it is slooooow.
If you get The Third Man, call me and I'll come over and watch it. I'll bring popcorn. And beer. I'm a noir junkie.
I recall Long Kiss Goodnight being really enjoyable. I think.
Even though I voted for Metropolis, I'm going to say this: see Metropolis. And Doom Generation.
Night of the Living Dead is a must see. As far as horror flicks go, its in a class by itself.
In the last section, a couple of them deserve mention. Parenthood is one of Steve Martin's best movies. My Blue Heaven is good for a laugh. Hurlyburly I enjoyed immensely. Avoid The Texas Chainsaw Massacre like an IRS audit. Awful, worthless, crap. A lot of people will disagree with me here, but they were 14 when they saw it.
But the one I really recommend here In the Company of Men. You know I have almost no shame but this movie made me want to crawl under a rock and hide.

[User Picture]There's a handful here and there that I have seen, but the majority of the movies on these lists are ones I've never seen before.

The way netflix works is as follows: you pay them a certain amount of money each month. They send you like three movies on DVD in a flat paper mailer. When you're done watching a movie, you send it back to them in the same mailer. No late fees, keep the movies as long as you'd like. Like I said, because of TiVo, I've fallen behind on the DVD watching to the point where I've had one movie since last year.
