Netflix is my replacement for Cable TV and I am doing a great job of watching the things I never got around to 10-20 years ago.
Margin Call – Nice concept but so poorly written I’m not sure the characters even cared what happened to them.
The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch – Very good heist-type movie about a murdered billionaire and his secret heir.
Heathers – Shoulderpads
Neverland – Syfychannel prequel to Peter Pan. Nothing much more to add to that.
House of Cards – Netflix-exclusive series and possibly one of the best series of 2013.
Vanilla Sky – It’s a sci-fi movie, but only the last 10 minutes. The rest is just Tom Cruise being sad.
Raising Arizona – Nicolas Cage at the high point of his career. 1987.
Monsters – Another good find. Low-budget alien movie by the guy making the Godzilla remake. Very light on the sci-fi part.
My 10th wedding anniversary
50th Anniversary of Doctor Who
New Star Trek & Superman movies
Sleeping more than 30 hours a week
Learning more CSS and OS scripting
Taking on new projects
Spending more time with family and friends
Cannibal The Musical – A bit gory in one scene but this movie made by the creators of South Park while still in college is pretty great. And yes, it’s a musical.
Grosse Pointe Blank – John Cusack is a hit man facing a mid life crisis while going to his high school reunion. Probably his best movie. Also, Dan Akroyd.
Idiocracy – A future where consumerism has gone to it’s comedic apocalyptic end. Spoiler alert: Starbucks offers sex acts.
Lone Star State of Mind – The best of the road trip comedy/heist movies. Inept bandits even try disguising themselves with panty liners on their heads.
The Pentagon Wars – Cary Elwes and Kelsey Grammer show the funnier side of government waste, based on a true story.
Here are my thoughts:
I am voting for some people that I’m not happy about voting for… but I dislike the opponents more.
I am voting against propositions that I really wish were better.
I am voting for and against state issues that seem almost like nonsense.
It’s November and I feel dirty.
