Netflix Now: Resolution Edition

Wow, it's been a while so sorry about that. Anyhoo, since it's a long list I'll get right to it after a few things. I'll try and make this bi-weekly from now on to avoid all of this, and thank you for reading this list time a...

The Ten Best Christmas Movies on Netflix Instant (2014 Edition) photo
The Ten Best Christmas Movies on Netflix Instant (2014 Edition)
by Nick Valdez

In December of 2013, I wrote about a Christmas movie a day for twenty five days. It was both the best and worst project I had ever attempted. I tested the limit of how many words I could actually come up with for each one. I barely scraped by in the end, but it was tons of fun. I would've never made it had it not been for Netflix Instant's library. 

As Flixist's resident expert in Besteverology, I think a list celebrating Netflix Instant's offerings for the holiday season is in order. Couple of rules: The films have to be available on Netflix Instant as of the time of writing (otherwise this list would've been Jingle All the Way ten times), and they have to involve Christmas in some way. 

With all of that said, wear your warmest onesie, brew your finest hot chocolate, listen to Jingle Bell Rock again, and read this list of The Ten Best Christmas Movies on Netflix Instant.

Netflix Now: Year End, Rear End Edition

As the last Netflix Now before the end of the year, I'd like to say it's been a good run. Although 2014 could've been a better year, I've had a lot of fun myself. Met a bunch of cool people, went to some cool places, ate some...

Netflix Now: 2014 Kind of Sucks

2014 has been very, very rough. Bad things have been happening everywhere and there's no sign of stopping. Sure bad things have been happening every year, but whatever's been bubbling under the surface all this time has final...

Netflix Now: Taylor Swift is Still My Boo Edition

It seems we've come full circle. One of the first Netflix Now articles I ever wrote was "Taylor Swift is My Boo," and I'm glad I get to mention her here again. Her latest album, 1989, released a bit back and it's pretty good....

Netflix Now: What's With All the Blackface? Edition

Happy Halloween weekend, folks! You have any plans? Any plans are fine as long as they don't involve dressing up as insulting caricatures. Ray Rice costumes, sexy ISIS members (yes, that's a thing), and enough is enough. It's...

FlixList: The Ten Best Horror Films on Netflix Instant (2014 Edition) photo
FlixList: The Ten Best Horror Films on Netflix Instant (2014 Edition)
by Nick Valdez

The tradition of watching scary movies during the Halloween season is now easier to keep up with than ever thanks to Netflix Instant. But with all the content available on the service, how do you know which ones are truly worth your precious couch time? Thankfully I, Flixist's resident expert on Besteverology, Nick Valdez, have used my lack of Halloween plans to gather a list of the ten best horror films on the service. 

Couple of rules: There's no real order to these films as they're all pretty scary in their own way, only one film per franchise, and they had to be available on Netflix Instant as of the time of writing. So sadly no American Psycho as it's leaving the service pretty soon. 

With all of that said, cuddle up with your candy corn cocktail, Jack O' Lantern filled with gummy bears, and sexy Charlie Brown costume and read this list of the Ten Best Horror Films on Netflix Right Now.

Netflix Now: Sorry I Was In A Coma Edition

Earlier this week, a man in the UK was outed for faking several disabilities and coma episodes for two years in order to avoid going to court. I'd like to take this time to say that guy is me and I apologize for my actions. I...

Netflix Now: Pumpkin Spice Edition

Well folks, it's October. Which means it's time for bad decisions, sexy costumes (I'm going as a sexy Charlie Brown this Halloween), and loads of diabetes. In case you'd somehow forgotten that it's October, every product ever...

Netflix Now: I Stand With Kanye

Last Friday during a concert in Sydney, Australia, Kanye West said he wasn't going to perform unless everyone in the audience stood up. Then he sent his bodyguard into the crowd to verify why a certain person was sitting, the...

Netflix Now: Joseph Khan's Detention Edition

Here's a partially true fact about me: If someone wants to be my friend, they have to watch Joseph Khan's Detention. If I spend any amount of time with a person and they haven't seen it, I hound them about it until they ...

Netflix Now: Third Party Pseudo-Exclusives

It's Gamescom, which means big game publishers not named Nintendo are all in Germany telling people about big new things that they're doing with their money. The biggest, showiest example of this was the announcement that the...

Netflix Now: Pizza Swimsuit Edition

I've always wanted to talk about Katy Perry here, I just wish it were under better circumstances. See, her newest single "How We Do" is pretty bad (much like the rest of PRISM, sadly) and slightly racist, but that's not what ...

Netflix Now: Rock the Casbah

It's been great watching Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's career skyrocket. He's a true blue "guy everyone wants to be, everyone wants to be with" who can go from children's films to action hero status without missing a beat. And ...

Apparently to signal the end of her once promising career, Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto V for using her likeness without her permission. Technically she's right as GTAV uses everyone's likeness in tha...

Over the past few days, North Korea has responded to the first trailer for Seth Rogen and James Franco's new gig, The Interview. Citing it as an "act of war" if the American government allows that film to release. Normal...

Netflix Now: Three Kardashians and a Baby Edition

After all of this time, I'm still keeping up with the Kardashians for some reason. Kim and Kanye (not Kanye and Kim, hilariously enough) or "Kamye/Kimye/Kimchi" had their wedding, and now one of the Kardashians sisters is pre...
