Comments

The news feed title needs fixing it says 2020. The actually article page title is fine.

Why doesn’t anyone say at least one Zendaya surname? It is as if she were intimate with the whole world.

I think it’s by her choice. It’s like a stage name, but it happens to just be her actual first name.

It’s literally how she’s credited. It’s her choice.

Do you know Cher’s surname? Madonna’s? It’s just a stagename.

Gadot, Reynolds and Dwayne made me think Hobbs and Shaw 2: We bring Gadot’s character back from the dead because why not, pass me the cocaine.

Right? I was super excited for a second to see Gadot and The Rock thinking, "Sweet, doesn’t matter who is dead, just keep bringing them back! Except Paul Walker…"

I saw Army of Dead and was hoping they were taking back Ash vs The Evil Dead.

Man what a bummer.

So Netflix is countering losing the most popular streaming sitcom by introducing…. nothing but B-movies. I’m glad I stopped my subscription, I have no idea who Netflix is for anymore with the unending wave of garbage they throw at people between new seasons of the handful of original shows that are worth anything on that service.
At this point I’m ready to cut the cable (?) to streaming services and just buy the things I want to watch and put them on Plex.

I mean, here’s the cast list for Don’t Look Up:

Directed by Adam McKay. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, Timothee Chalamet, Ron Perlman with Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep.

But yeah, just B movies right

If it’s lousy, it’s a B movie. Just because it has a bunch of famous names doesn’t mean it’s any good. Almost all Netflix movies have this half-baked feel, like they needed a few more rewrites.

I mean…you haven’t seen it yet right? Or like…any of the ones on this list yet right? So why do snap judgements?

Also a movie being "lousy" is not a B Movie…. a b-movie is just low-budget. There are several spectacular b-movies

I don’t mind Netflix churning out insane amounts of content but their algorithm doesn’t work so how am I supposed to know what’s even worth sampling? I could spend all my time looking at each one of those for five minutes and giving up. And Netlfix would count that as a view, what a con.

And Netlfix would count that as a view, what a con.

Why do you care what Netflix counts as a view?

Do you work for Netflix or something? The fuck man

Nope. Why would anyone care how netflix counts views? Like how does that affect anyone?

So much crap, gives me a headache. I’ll check out a few…Munich, the black Western…but so much of it just seems like stuff we’ve seen before, that somebody else could be doing, that doesn’t really need to exist. Netflix needs to take more risks. There should be a few titles in the mix that are getting everyone psyched with excitement. Instead it’s more or less a shrug…oh look a zombie movie…

If you hate it that much it doesn’t make sense to keep your subscription.

I intend to do just that, netflix is doing a crap job at genre content. Virtually nothing has the quality of the expanse, they are light on good sci fi and fantasy series, and most of these movies would have been sent straight to vhs back in the day and not been blockbusters worth anyone spending their money in theaters.

The kinds of movies that make it in theaters, netflix seems loathe to greenlight. Disinterest? Cost of special effects? Disney is going the opposite direction, investing in ever expanding stagecraft studios to scale up the speed and scope of special effects laden shows that can be produced. But I don’t think the content guys over at netflix seem clued in at all.

Just FYI for the unfamiliar but the bizarre manipulations and machinations of the author of The Woman in the Window are way more interesting than the book which is literally a rip-off of Copycat and Rear Window mashed together designed to cash in on the success off The Girl on the Train. The New Yorker article about him is just wild: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/02/11/a-suspense-novelists-trail-of-deceptions
