As told to me by the ghosts of Hollywood past, present and future.
1) Past – Netflix is going to update it’s hard to navigate website.
Or at least that’s my hope. I have been a customer with Blockbuster Total Access for about a year, and I am trying to switch over to Netflix because it’s slightly cheaper. But I’m starting to realize it may not be worth it. My biggest (and possibly only) Netflix complaint is that I cannot search for movies by release date. How hard is it to list all the movies just released on DVD in one place? And then all the movies coming out next week in another? And all the movies playing in the theaters in another (so I can save them for later)?
Netflix seems tailor made for folks who like to watch old movies, or category movies or indie movies. Don’t try to put me in a box. Yes I like Action and Sci-Fi movies, but that’s not all. I can think outside my category, thank you very much. Oh and guess what else? New release is a category Netflix! Just show me all the movies that have become available and let me pick my own dammit! If I want your suggestions…I’ll go to the suggestions page.
Fortunately, you already knew that and paid for two seats. So what’s the problem Southwest Airlines? Well apparently he was switched to a flight where there was only one seat available. Oops. Yea, in that case you have to wait Kevin Smith. Maybe you could sit in the seat with two arm rest down and your seat belt buckled, but that doesn’t change that fact that there is an extra person sitting on one side of the plane. I could squeeze into a child’s swing if I had to, but that don’t mean the chains or plastic is going to hold me over time. And it also doesn’t mean that the kid next to me is going to enjoy being knocked around by my adult sized elbows as we swing.
Airplane safety is not the time to be politically correct. If I was Southwest Airlines I’d hate to answer questions about a plane crash — a-la Aaliyah — because I was afraid to answer question about why I ejected a fat person from my plane. Kudos to Southwest Airline, the friendly — and safe — skies.
I love vampire movies, or at least I used to…before Twilight (and a host of other stupid bloodsucker movies) killed them. Yet just like real, or ahh…fictional vampires they just never seem to stay dead. Someone is always reviving them, just to shove the stake in deeper. Que Vlad the Impaler.
Look, hardcore vampire fans and wannabe vampires are going to see the movie regardless, but here’s some food for thought: it’s not going to be nearly as “sexy” as Twilight, thus no teenage girls and the casual vampire fan is going to throw up at the sight of the preview they are so full on this crap, so who’s that leave to actually go see this movie? It’s going to be another Daybreakers. Decent idea, poor timing. Don’t do that to Dracula. Please.
