Movies ...

We got Netflix about a month ago ... and it's been a fantastic life decision.  Just a sampling of what we've watched in the past month:

Law Abiding Citizen.  I'm still not sure how I felt about this movie.  I think I liked it and it was thought provoking, but the ending was really abrupt.  Like, I was not expecting it to happen.  And then the movie just ended.  So I wasn't really a fan of that.

Top Gun.  I'm 26, I was born in the 80's, I'm dating a fighter pilot and I had never seen Top Gun.  Until two weeks ago.  Whoops.  Thoughts:  Loved the 80's cheesiness.  Love that the Navy uniforms have not changed ONE BIT since the 80's.  Loved Goose.  Hated that he died.  Might have shed a tear or two.  Loved Tom Cruise pre-weirdo stage.  Overall, good movie.  And when you watch Top Gun ... think of me ... because that's my life now!

Sunshine Cleaning.  This is an Indie Film that I had been wanting to see for awhile.  I didn't love it or hate it, but I'm glad I finally saw it!

Dexter - Seasons 1 and 2, working on Season 3.  I LOVE DEXTER, the series about the kind-hearted serial killer.  It's a hilarious show and I recommend it to everyone.  It can get a little far-fetched at times, but that's TV right?  Seasons 1 and 2 were on Instant Play, but for Season 3 we've been having to get the disc from Netflix, watch the episodes that are on it, send it back and wait patiently for the next disc.  I'm not very good at patience.  We should be getting the third disc of Season 3 tomorrow ... I cannot wait!

Arrested Development - Seasons 1, 2, and 3.  Loved it.  Season 1 and 2 were better than Season 3, I think at that point the show wasn't doing too well and the producers knew it and didn't really care.  I've read (on Wikipedia so take it with a grain of salt) that the show didn't do very well while it was airing on TV but now that it's off-air it has a cult-like following.  Supposedly, a movie is in the works and will debut in 2011.

I have about a million more movies and TV shows on my list to watch.  Do you have any suggestions of movies or shows that I HAVE to see?  I am really looking forward to having some time to just sit on the couch and catch-up on movies and TV!

  1. Thanks to Netflix, I'm watching TV shows I never would have watched otherwise. My husband and I have gone through Dexter, NCIS, The Office, and I'm currently on Gossip Girl (I hate myself every time I admit the last one).
