I didn't think so. And avoided looking at it all night. So finally I looked and it was okay. I wasn't sure. I didn't even remember hitting post or finishing writing the post.
So I was glad it turned out okay.
I'm going to rant about Netflix for a moment. I was reading over the weekend that DVDs in the mail were down for Netflix and that was part of it's move towards streaming.
That's a damn lie.
There is no reason in the world at present to subscribe to Netflix unless you're getting DVDs.
I know some who have done just the stream and they regret it but are holding out thinking it has to get better.
What am I talking about?
There's nothing to stream.
I mean there's streaming content. But I don't use it lately.
I don't think I've streamed at Netflix in a month and a half.
They lost Starz and lost their shot at current stuff. They've had the Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman film as "new" on the main page for over three months.
And you wait and wait for an actual "new" offering to come along and there's nothing.
I've seen everything I want to see at Netflix.
And the older stuff?
That's the worst. For over six months you've had the same Bette Davis, the same Cary Grant, the same Joan Crawford, the same Katharine Hepburn films available for streaming. And not that many to begin with. But you didn't notice when they had Starz. Starz would show, for example, "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?" and so you'd be able to stream that while that was going on.
Their inventory is static. They're offering nothing. Not under classics, not under new, not under horror. Excuse me, they're offering -- as "movies" -- failed pilots to TV shows so horrible no one wanted to buy them as TV shows. You know that guy, the old one, in "The Reaper"?
I saw a 'movie' (pilot) with him where he was a detective in LA and his partner was a robot. This was from the 80s.
Netflix is so awful and has been for so long, that I am pretty sure it's got another month to turn it around or I'm gone for good.
