Netflix

I've been signed up with Netflix for just over a year now and have seen 83 movies during that time from them. I still go to the theaters to see the good movies that come out. Some I've seen in theaters this year are Star Wars EpIII, Batman Returns, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Wedding Crashers...

But after seeing 83 movies from Netflix over the year, I've started to run out of ideas on ones to see... Got any ideas? I'd be open to some good movie suggestions.

Here is my rental history from Netflix:

anything by christopher guest: best in show, a mighty wind, waiting for guffman
anything by charlie kauffman: being john malkovich, adaptation, eternal sunshine...
also, i heart hukabees, the euology, saved, haiku tunnel,

Blogger Wez said ... (1:54 PM, September 11, 2005) : 

I looked at Dead Like Me - looks cool, since I liked Six Feet Under. Its no on my Queue..

Larin - Just got Eternal Sunshine.. in the mail yesterday. I have also heard that Arrested Development is good. I'm probably gonna have to check that out.

 

Blogger larin von smartass said ... (3:49 PM, September 11, 2005) : 

arressted development is amazing. if you get the dvd of the first season, the second season should be out soon too, you will want to sit and watch them back to back because they are so well done.

Hey Wez, I see you on my friends Cass' site. Stopping by to say hi. I love netflix as we never go to the movies. Here are some reccommendations:

Series: Arrested Development is great, Curb Your Enthusiam, The Office (british ver.)

Movies: The Station Agent, Adaptation, Big Fish, Donnie Darko, Election, Memento, Requiem for a Dream, Royal Tenembaums, Shaun of the Dead, Welcome to the Dollhouse, Love Actually, Life is Beautiful

I've also enjoyed some stand-up from Margret Cho and Chris Rock (never sacred, I think)

 

Blogger Wez said ... (4:48 PM, September 11, 2005) : 

Baby - I love Curb Your Enthusiam. Memento was good too. I'll have to check the rest of those out...

 

Blogger babyjewels said ... (6:28 AM, September 12, 2005) : 

wez, if you liked the ass pennies clip, you should definitely netflix Upright Citizen's Brigade, too.

 

Blogger Tiffany said ... (8:44 AM, September 12, 2005) : 

Wow you have to get a hobby sweety.

 

Blogger Queen of Ass said ... (11:59 AM, September 12, 2005) : 

Lesbian movies are great. Like Better Than Chocolate. Only don't expect much of a plot. It's the illicit sex that makes them worth it.

 

Blogger ambs77 said ... (4:54 PM, September 12, 2005) : 

Space Balls, Serendipity.

 

Blogger Matt Schneider said ... (9:51 PM, September 12, 2005) : 

Fahrenheit 451
Clockwork Orange
Soylent Green

 

Blogger Publisher, The Whited News said ... (8:00 AM, September 13, 2005) : 

Try "Vampire's Kiss" with Nick Cage, "About Schmidt" with Jack Nicholson, "Barfly" - Mickey Rourke, "Napoleon Dynamite" & "Very Bad Things".

 

Blogger TequilaGirl said ... (10:37 AM, September 13, 2005) : 

Wez, you have too much time on your hands... if I can think of any I'll let you know. LOL!

 

Blogger Wez said ... (10:49 AM, September 13, 2005) : 

Thought I'd just say to those who think I need a hobby.. or have too much time on my hands...

That I play softball 2 nights a week. Bowl 1 night a week. Go to Iowa Football games on Saturdays. Go out after work atleast 1 night a week(either Tuesdays or Fridays or both) ... so I am not home very much.. but when I am home. Im usually watching a movie. = )

 

Blogger amera hearts said ... (12:21 PM, September 13, 2005) : 

rent:
Kung Pow
Goonies
and these:

Best of SNL:
Will Farrel Vol 1 & 2
and
Christopher Walken

 

Blogger Candee said ... (2:32 PM, September 14, 2005) : 

The only two I can think of are Poolhall Junkies if you like Christopher Walken and Spun if you like Requiem For a Dream. So what did you think of Eternal Sunshine? It's one of my faves!

 

Blogger Wez said ... (5:46 PM, September 14, 2005) : 

Candee - I thought it was pretty good. I actually liked it much more than I thought I would. Pretty good movie...

 

Blogger The Nude Chef said ... (5:59 PM, September 24, 2005) : 

The Salton Sea
