Netflix and Movie Lovers
I am a die-hard Netflix lover. It seems they have the best selection of movies and TV shows. So, I was thrilled when I recently received an invitation to join a screening of some of my favorite movies at Netflix. I had to go!
The downside is that I had to come up with my own travel arrangements. And it is one of those things that I didn’t want to think about until I had to. I found a nice hotel close to the theater. But, I didn’t really want to leave the house. Besides, there was no way I was going to miss the opportunity to get all my movie fix.
So, I called up my wife and arranged to stay at the hotel for the night. Then I hopped in the car and went over to Netflix. There were plenty of movie screens set up. They also were offering a free movie when you join them. Now I had to figure out which movie to pick.
My plan was to watch Michael Bay’s newest, The Rock. To be honest, I don’t know how to feel about Michael Bay. I still think he is kind of trashy. But, I would have to say that his last two movies were both pretty great. The Croods and 47 Ronin are my two favorite movies of the year.
The night ended with me watching Dumb and Dumber To on my laptop. And it did not disappoint. To say that I enjoyed it is a huge understatement. It is still my all time favorite movie, even though it did not quite live up to its predecessor.
I don’t know how long I will stay at the hotel. I plan on staying as long as the theater is showing other movies. But, that may depend on how many people join Netflix and how long the movie runs are.
The movie is actually a part of the Starz network. And so, I can expect to see more movies from them. I suppose I should be excited for that. I will definitely try to see some of the other Starz movies when I am at home with my wife.
My next movie I plan on seeing is Moneyball, the full length version. I really enjoyed the short version.
