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 I watched through Pharell getting the joint jumping, Bono’s wailing walrus, and Karen O’s mystifying vocal. Then it was Menzel’s turn when John Travolta wrongly pronounced her name. Coincidentally, her performance that night was a little rough too. 

But whatever, Netflix will never pronounce my name wrong. This week, a whole bunch of films return to the service like Desperado, Star Kid, and Dirty Dancing. So many returning in fact, I won’t list them here. Oh and for the record, my “Travoltfiied” (according to Slate) name is Nairn Mceezald.

Hit the jump for the list of Netflix Instant additions for the week.
