Thanksgiving is almost upon us, so I'd like to devote today's entry to something I am grateful for. And today, its Netflix. I have to say, I've never been so happy with my movie rental service ever since the 99-cent video store disappeared from the face of america (I do miss you!) I spent a couple of years detesting Blockbuster (and with all those fees and high incident rate of asinine management, who can blame me?) and randomly patronizing Hollywood video.

and then came Netflix. I resisted the popular vote for a couple of years and then in a fit of boredom (the most motivating force in my life), I joined them. Its been at least a year now and I've never regretted giving them my dollars.

Especially today. I was looking over the recommended videos and saw Star Wars pop up. I'd already seen them, so I went ahead and rated them (5 stars for Empire, its my fave). And as many of you know, once you rate a particular type of movie, Netflix tries to hit you up with more from the same category and soon I was hip deep in Sci-Fi: Adventure. What a great category name that is! And what even more amazing movies they have! An even better, they are all rated pretty mediocre!

I love bad sci-fi and this category has movies I already watched (Buckeroo Banzai, D.A.R.Y.L, Barbarella) and tonnes of questionable movies that I can't wait to see!

I found an animated version of DragonLance (based on the Weis/Hickman books). Something out of HongKong called 'Cyber Wars' that looks kind of neat

and plenty of movies I never want to watch but am amazed to see that Netflix has, like 'petticoat planet' (do I even want to know?)

So bless you Netflix and all your movies, every crappy single last one of them!
