1 Growin' a Beard (ariving tomorrow...a film about a beard growing contest)

 

 

I own Growin' A Beard. I even got critiqued by the beard guy when I was in ad school. He was kind of a dick but it's a cool doc with a great soundtrack. Make sure to watch the special features--the thing about the 72 oz steak in Amarillo is great.

 

Just sent back:

The Last Detail--really, really great flick with Jack Nicholson and a very young Randy Quaid

 

At Home:

Stranger Than Fiction--this was awesome.

Miller's Crossing

Harlan County, USA--I've had this for months. I'm just never in the mood.

I just watched The Insider, from 1999. It stars Al Pacino and Russel Crowe and is about the big tobacco companies and their knowledge of nicotine's addictive properties. Pretty damn good film.

That is a good one. One of the few movies that Russell Crowe actually acts in, which is nice.

Saw a couple of so-so reviews for Babel on here. I really liked this film a lot. I know it can be a difficult movie to get in to, but I think it's a very rewarding flick if you can just sort of give in to it on a very basic level. That sounds like psyco-babble bullshit but I think it's a pretty good picture all in all.

I've had a bad run on Netflix movies lately - I can't remember the last time I liked something enough to give it a 4 or 5 star rating. Last night I watched The King, and loved it. I was continually surprized by the story, and both William Hurt and Gael Garcia Bernal were excellent. I really enjoyed the pacing of the movie too, leisurely but suspenseful at the same time. There's not many films where the camera can linger on the reflection of the sun on the water, or two characters sitting holding hands, or a guy drinking a beer, without it detracting from the action and pulling the viewer out of the film. Anyway, a really well done movie - I enjoyed it much more than The Departed, Blood Diamond, Babel, Little Miss Sunshine, Science of Sleep, The Prestige, blah blah blah.

Next up: Children of Men and Half Nelson

i've wondered if he's swiping my outbound movies, watching them and then sending them in. it's uncanny how slow the system is. i was hoping to watch the good shepherd tonight.

Hmm. That might be true. This is from Wikipedia, so ...

 

"Throttling" and the Chavez lawsuit

 

Netflix's allocation policy

In February 2006 Netflix indicated that it would alter the settlement terms so that customers would be required to actively approve any continuation after the free month provided by the settlement. The final settlement hearing was on March 22, 2006. After the settlement was agreed upon, Netflix opened up registration on their website, with a deadline of June 26, 2006.[17] On September 6, 2006, an appeal was filed in California Appellate Courts, 1st Appellate District. The settlement benefit will not be distributed until the appeals process is completed, which could take 12 or more months.[18]

When we got our settlement offer in the mail, we just said "Phhssshh...whatevs. So not worth the effort," and declined the opportunity. The whole throttling practice is rather sheisty.
