Netflix.com has become one of my favorite places on the web. We’ve had an account for several months now.
For those unfamiliar with Netflix, you decide how many movies you want at a time, and pay a set amount per month. Then you can dole out individual users within your account to have separate queues. This way, my comedy and romantic drama choices stay separate from my husband’s reels and reels of anime flicks and action adventures. Andrew is nice enough to allow me two movies at a time, while he settles with just one.
In the spirit of sharing little bits of insight to my somewhat boring life, I thought it would be fun to list some unexpected Netflix adventures.
Top 3 Movies Netflix recommended that I thought would suck, but found out I adore:
- Brokeback Mountain
- The Life of David Gale
- Anywhere But Here
Top 3 Movies Netflix recommended that I thought I would adore, but found out they suck:
- Secondhand Lions
- Penn & Teller: Off The Deep End
- Chicken Little
So there you have it. What does this prove? Automated computer ratings based on user opinions aren’t always correct. Keep an open mind, and you might find that there are some unexpectedly good movies out there…
