My netflix problem

We’ve had the same three movies in our house for a REALLY LONG TIME.


I’m sure all three of these films are great. But they also seem really heavy and serious. I have enough stress in my own life that I don’t want to absorb fictional stress also. So every time my wife and I have two or three hours to relax, we end up watching something else, like Andrew Zimmern chowing through a plate of horse penises.

  1. Do yourself a favor and skip “No Country” and “Atonement”, for they are (respectively) vastly overrated and thoroughly terrible. There, you've just freed up enough angst-absorption capacity to soak up “Pan's Labyrinth”, which is beautiful, terrifying, and an absolute must-see. (Much like Peter Jackson's “Heavenly Creatures” provided many with the faith that he wouldn't screw up “Lord of the Rings” too much, I am totally sold on del Toro directing “The Hobbit” after his work on “Pan's Labyrinth”.)

  2. Sounds like a good idea. “No Country” in particular seemed really slow and grisly. Lindsey read the book Atonement, and she liked that, so that's how that one landed on the list.
