Netflix seems to be going for quantity over quality lately though. So many new shows I can't keep up and some are really bad. I felt dumber after watching 1 episode of disjointed.

That much has been obvious for a while.  That's why they disbanded the old ratings system.  First batch of viewers would thumbs down and then nobody would watch.

I got my 1 month free trial from Netflix to watch Making a Murderer.  It only took me 2 months of paying for it before I remembered to cancel the subscription.

I'm not so big on binge-watching TV series.  I really wanted Netflix for watching recent movies without having to rent them individually.  I was vastly underwhelmed with the movie selection on Netflix.  I think that the Amazon Prime selection is as good, if not better, and I am a Prime member for lots of reasons.  No sense in paying for Netflix as a redundant service with something I'm already paying for.

Netflix will also take a hit with losing a bunch of stuff due to Disney exclusivity, with Disney starting their own streaming service.

We've been using Prime a LOT more than Netflix fort he past year or more. At this point, all I really ever use Netflix for is stand-up comedy while I'm on the treadmill. Time to cancel, I guess.

netflix already dropped a lot of the disney stuff.  we are using netflix an amazon about equally right now for shows...or at tleast the kiddos are.  THey know which service their fav shows are on.  I am more of a netflix person. currently in the middle of a documentary about castles in ireland, britian, scotland and their history.

cutting cable looks tempting but I love me some scifi and comet channels.  I dunno if I could give them up

I use Netflix a lot more than Amazon Prime, though I have both. But these days, we use HBO the most.

and a -1 for Amazon Prime which makes you enter your password nearly every time you advance a show (or maybe there is a setting for this I haven't found yet) but its really annoying..

I never have to enter my password on Prime Video.

Me either. I only have to enter a 5-digit PIN when I buy or rent non-Prime shows.

I always have to do put the PIN in between every show or movie )only when using the fire Stick) maybe there is a setting somewhere? It’s totally annoying

Would it be because of the rating of the show? Could be a parental control in place restricting it.

No I haven’t seen that one yet...


Has anyone seen the Netflix movie where the dude cuts his wanker off while camping? I just can’t bring myself to watch it unless I know everything’s going to be alright ....

O!M!G!  We ended up watching this last night.  My wife had some movie on and by the time all the boys were upstairs we just ended up catching the end, but then Netflix does that thing where it plays a trailer of something it thinks you'll like based on what you were watching.  The trailer for "The Package" looked like it could be funny so we ended up watching it.  We were about halfway through the movie when it dawned on me that THIS WAS THAT MOVIE.

Ended up being pretty funny...there were a few parts that had us laughing out loud.

I can't imagine how that would be funny.

We watched all of Jack Ryan last week on Prime. Pretty good!

Had lots of Netflix time between pukes last week.

Jack Ryan on Prime was good.

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?  Saw ads for emmy-winning blah blah - couldn't make it through 20 minutes of that hot garbage.

Maniac on Netflix - Weird, not sure exactly what is going on, but weird enough to keep watching I guess.

My fiance and I watched Unforgiven (western from 1992) this weekend. He was insanely tired after the day he had on Friday (involving the bike crash, job interview, and job offer) and dozed off before the end, but I watched the whole thing. It was really good!

I'd never heard of it, but can't say I was that into westerns when I was that young. It won a lot of Academy Awards. Starred in and directed by Clint Eastwood. I'd definitely recommend it!

Dozed off!??! The ending of Unforgiven is one of the most intense in cinematic history.

Yeah, I know! I mean, I saw it. But he fell asleep probably an hour ish in, so still an hour to go. Well before the end.

Saw Wait Until Dark this past weekend on ze Primez.

Wait-Until-Dark-1967-movie-poster.jpg

Another good, classic movie.  For 50 years old, it entertained me unlike all these CGI, no plot, hot mess films we're shoveled in this day and age.  Sure there are better movies out there, but this is simple enough for me to follow and enjoy.  It's got drugs, a doll, and Audrey...  Speaking of Audrey, she could have used a sandwich or three during the filming.

Didn't affect her acting as a blind woman, though.  She says her blindness came recently from an accident, maybe accidentally not eating her sandwiches.  Either way, Hulk feed and Hulk smash.  Wait Until Dark gets 3.5 stars.  I give Audrey Hepburn 4.5 sandwiches.

We are watching Jack Ryan via Vidangel.  takes all the stuff out kiddos don't need to hear.  We are really liking it.  I watched 3:10 to Yuma again and the new Magnificent 7.  Yuma was still good.  Meh for Magnificent 7.  Denzel just isn't that great.

Although I had sworn off watching the show, I do have a morbid curiosity on how TWD ends up, last years season is now on Netflix now, so I have been watching it, but its gotten so bad that you can pick up most of what is going on by watching the intro, fast forward to the middle, watch a few minutes, fast forward to the end and do the same thing..

 

This “king Ezekiel” character & the rest of his people story line is pretty awful, I vaguely remember him from season 7 but man does someone need to put a bullet in that guys head..

Just got to the part where the tiger got eaten by the walkers.

I think I liked that tiger than the king guy.
