Most popular question: How soon do I know what movie I'll write about on Friday?
This week, I knew Monday night. I saw a great film and all week long I've wanted to write about it but kept telling myself, "Save it for Friday."
It's a really great movie. It's black & white and older. Some of you will already know it. I knew the title and the remake but I didn't know about the movie. I really loved it.
Bill e-mailed that he has wireless on his laptop and has Netflix where he gets two movies out a time. He wondered if he was wasting his money and/or time by not streaming on his laptop?
Well if you hate streaming on your laptop, if the picture's too small for you or something, then no.
But you get to stream online for your monthly fee that you're already paying. So not streaming, that's like you're not using everything you're paying for.
Everything does not stream. They have a select group of movies.
And I'm kind of ticked off because last week I streamed one of my favorites: Cactus Flower.
That is the 1969 comedy that Goldie Hawn won the Oscar for. It's a very funny movie. And when I tried to stream it this week . . . Turns out it's unavailable for streaming. Could they have not given us a heads up that it was only for a limited time?
Lastly, how long can you keep a DVD from Netflix? As long as you pay your membership. Let's say When Harry Met Sally . . . is your favorite film, okay? You get it tomorrow from Netflix. You can watch it until you send it back. I guess you could keep for a year or two. Maybe three. But the only way you'd be 'in trouble' would be if you didn't pay your monthly fee.
