Our month of free Netflix streaming has come to an end. Here is a recap.
Movies Vern and I watched together:
Drive - Ryan Gosling. Boring.
Take This Waltz - Michelle Williams and Seth Rogan. Really enjoyed the beauty of it.
Young Adult - Charlize Theron. It was alright.
Jim Gaffigan: Beyond the Pale - Funny.
The Queen of Versailles - Interesting documentary.
Mr. Universe - Another funny Jim Gaffigan special.
Bernie - I watched this one because I saw that Jack Black got nominated for a Golden Globe for it. It's about real-life events, but made to look like a documentary, with actors playing the parts of the real people.
Merton: A Film Biography - I love this guy, Thomas Merton.
Conan O'Brien Can't Stop - documentary about Conan's tour after he got fired from the Tonight Show. Conan is rather biting at times.
Everything Must Go - we only watched part of this, because we fell asleep. It was alright.
Movies I watched on my own:
Melancholia - Kirsten Dunst. Didn't know what to think about it.
Three Magic Words - Cheesey.
Afterlife - Not that interesting.
I'm Reed Fish - Alexis Bledel and Jay Baruchel star, which is why I wanted to watch it, but it was rather bland and not that interesting.
Spork - kind of like Napoleon Dynamite, if Napoleon Dynamite were a 14-year-old hermaphrodite girl. Cute.
Happy - a documentary about being happy.
The Future - For some reason, I've always wanted to see a movie by Miranda July. I had heard about her somewhere, and made a mental note to watch one of her movies sometime. This was a quirky and good little movie.
Tiny Furniture - I watched this because I saw that it starred Lena Dunham, that 26-year-old behind the HBO series Girls. It was good. Nothing groundbreaking, but a fairly solid independent flick.
The Human Experience - Documentary. Just ended up watching part of it. Okay.
American Mystic - Documentary. Just watched part of this one as well. Not that good.
Movies Vernon watched on his own:
For Greater Glory - some kind-of religious movie about a Mexican war.
Pearl Jam Twenty - a documentary about Pearl Jam. Vernon loves Pearl Jam.
Overall, didn't really, really enjoy all that much of it. The only one that I really, really liked was Take This Waltz, but I wouldn't even recommend that one to everyone because it is kind of different and I can see it not being everyone's cup of tea.
So, now, back to our regular scheduled programming... (The Office, Supernatural, Shark Tank, etc)
