Even if you don’t follow videogame news, it’s hard to avoid the big hooplah over E3 each year. Although this year, that hooplah was well deserved as Sony straight up trounced all its competition by both providing a nice sounding price for its game system (and showing cool games) and by belittling its competitor’s terrible PR decisions. So basically a lot of folks are saying Sony stole the whole show. As a sucker for hype myself, I got swept up in it and even managed to get into a small flame war. It was nostalgic.
Okay now that all of that’s out of the way, there are a few…well interesting additions to Netflix Instant this week. Most importantly is Upstream Color, the film I’ll need three days to watch because I’ll need the time to dissect all of Hubes’s extremely detailed analysis. On the other side of the coin we have Madea’s Witness Protection: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, and I’ll assume that’s supposed to be used as a palette cleanser of some kind. If it’s anywhere near as good as Tyler Perry Presents Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, then count me in. The last big thing to hit is the film with the worst box office opening of all time, The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure. So watch that if train wrecks are your thing.
