Netflix Now: Anyone else watching American Idol? Edition

I've really been digging this season of American Idol. Despite the ridiculous amount of cuts to Jennifer Lopez during the performances, most of the contestants this year have been great. And the new judging panel isn't too ba...

Netflix Now: Whole Buncha Stuff Edition

Usually I like to use this space in Netflix Now to talk about the week's events, but there are far too many Instant additions to waste any time. Since it's the beginning of the month, we're in that flux of losing/gaining a bu...

Netflix Now: Hot in Herrrrrrrrrre Edition

Before the Malaysian Flight MH370 mystery came to an unfortunate conclusion, radio station Latino Hot 105.7 vowed to play Nelly's "Hot in Herre" until the plane was found. Well they kept that up for about a day, but what's mo...

Netflix Now: SXSW Recovery Edition

It's been a week since I've been back from this year's SXSW, and I'm finally recovering from it. My sleep schedule's back on track, my brain seems to be making words good now, and now I can finally start churning out the cove...

Netflix Now: Adele Dazeem Edition

During the Academy Awards, all I looked forward to was Idina Menzel's performance. I was actually more interested in what would win the Best Original Song Oscar more so than I cared about Best Picture. It was a weird night as...

Netflix Now: Manatees Day Edition

What's Manatees Day? When I tried typing in "Manantine's Day" in my phone it auto corrected to "Manatees Day" thus making it the best idea ever. I figure I can call what I do every Valentine's Day (eat a bunch of junk food, w...

Netflix Now: Deboning the Pink Goo Edition

The Super Bowl happened last weekend as I was planning to talk about it here, but it was terribly boring all around. Kudos to the Seahawks, but watching a blowout coupled with a heap of subpar commercials doesn't make a good ...

Netflix Now: Vin Diesel is a National Treasure Edition

A few hours ago I wrote a story about how Vin Diesel said Universal wants another Riddick, what I didn't get into, however, was how he announced it. After a few minutes of dancing to Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" and closing out ...

Netflix Now: FOOTBAWWWWWWW Edition

I like football probably not as much as the next guy (as I only jump in during playoff season like some cheap bandwagoner), but it's that time of the year where it's all I think about until the Soup Bowl. The NFC and AFC cham...

Alec's 6 Best Korean Films Released on Netflix in 2013

Nearly every time I tell people that I'm a fan of Korean films, I point them to the Korean subgenre on Netflix. It's easy, and even though many people won't ever check them out, I'm happy that the option is there. I understan...

Netflix Now: Texting in Theaters Edition

On Monday, a man in Florida was shot and killed because he was texting in a theater. While it's easy for most of us to say "Texting in theaters is bad, don't do it" it's another thing for an altercation over it to lead to vio...

Matt's 10 best 2013 movies you can watch on Netflix

Netflix is awesome. Streaming movies is great and they've got tons of classics and a decent amount of more recent blockbusters. However, Netflix isn't actually known for being super up to date with the movies on it. While it ...

Netflix Now: New Year's Resolution Edition

Before Christmas hit last year I told you all I was going on a short break. You all then suggested I gather two weeks worth of Netflix Instant additions into one post, and I hesitantly agreed. If I had known that Netflix was ...

Netflix has 76,897 unique ways to describe movies

Alexis Madrigal over at the Atlantic went a little insane and decided to figure out just how many of those insanely precise genres Netflix has. The answer he came to, after some truly diligent work, was 76,897. In an interest...

Lots of good movies leaving Netflix Instant January 1st

So you like Netflix Instant, right? Prepare to be married to it for the rest of the year. According to Vulture (who spotted a thread on Reddit that keeps track of expiration dates now that Netflix gave that up), lots of notab...

Netflix Now: 2013 Kicked Ass Edition

Given that the next two Wednesdays are major holidays, and I won't be bothered to write things other than my Nick's Flixmas posts during that time, New Releases and Netflix Now are going on a break.  Which means this is ...

Netflix Now: Dig It Uh Oh OHHHH, Dig It Edition

Normally I'd use this space to talk about stuff going on this week, but I can't really think about anything other than Disney's Holes. It was added to Netflix Instant this week, and ever since I had found that out, all I've b...

Netflix Now: First Drones, Then Terminators Edition

This week Amazon announced their future plans for Amazon Prime Air, a drone delivery service that would arguably deliver your Blu-rays within thirty minutes. Although the future may be here, just think of how damn expensive i...

Inside the Xbox One Launch Event in LA, is it just games?

Now when anyone thinks of a console launch, they think videogames. That is their primary function, but with technology making everything easier and simpler, consoles do far more than just play games. You can start to see thi...

Netflix Now: Black Thanksgiving Edition

As you in America know, we folks love us some deals. Some of us love the thrill of a cheap deal so much, we're willing to strike each other and act our worst for them. Because most retailers opened at 10PM Thanksgiving to cas...
