Like most Netflix users, we have a huge Instant Streaming queue, filled with titles which we may never watch. Thanks to me, our queue also is filled with movies Valerie doesn’t recognize. It’s time for a challenge! By title alone, can Valerie describe the plots of seven random films from our list? And once she learns the actual plots, can I convince her to watch these films with me? Can I convince you, as well? Purely for the fun of it! This episode is brought to you by Waiting In Line.
When Netflix infamously split its disk and streaming services, we decided to stick with streaming only. The final movie to arrive at our home was The American, and the ladies weren’t very happy about it. They assumed it was a typical action film, and not worthy of our final rental spot. The film ended up not being exactly what they thought it would be, but was close enough to make their point.
How predictable are the plots of movies I like to watch?
To answer this question, we devised a game. I would share titles of several films I recently watched via Netflix streaming. Based solely on these titles, the rest of the Babblers would have to guess what the films were about. Finally, I would share the actual plots, and review each film.
Cross Netflix streams with us, and dream up your own plot for these films! Also included is the latest Cavebabble Eats Odd Things. This episode is brought to you by Every Action Movie Ever.
Odd work schedules continue to wreak havoc on our Cavebabble schedule, but thanks to Netflix, my weekend included odd films and television instead. That’s right, I binged on a collection of streaming treats, including Night of the Comet, Skyline, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Doctor Who (Season 4), Star Trek: The Next Generation, Spider-Man (1967 animated series), and The Last Action Hero. Together, they represent five different decades of entertainment. Burp. We are about to drop the DVD portion of our Netflix account, but considering what I choose to enjoy on streaming, it looks like I will hardly miss it. Bring on the cheese!
…is ridiculous. Too much tasty content. But why do we have to wait until October for Deep Space Nine?
