There’s very little to be had on Netflix Instant this week, you know why? Netflix is currently in the process of destroying itself from the inside out. First off, a large amount of titles have been dropped (1,795 titles to be exact) since they’ve now become exclusive to Warner Archive. Second, for most users, Netflix Instant has gotten rid of the Instant Queue and replaced it with “Your List.” “Your List” is auto-arranged according to whatever criteria it feels like, such as how new it is or how much it thinks you’ll watch it.
This whole process won’t be much news to light users of the Instant service, but the fact that you can’t organize a queue anymore is not boss. Oh well, this week we have What to Expect When You’re Expecting (a film Matt did not like in the slightest, but I will because JLO), Are We There Yet? (the exact moment Ice Cube chose to follow that sweet, sweet family picture money instead of just making another Friday), Girl in Progress (a chick flick starring Eva Mendes, so yes please), and most importantly, 500 MPH Storm a B-movie starring Johnny Rico Casper Diem.
Hit the jump for the (tinier than average) list of Netflix Instant additions for the week as well as some videos that should remind you that I’m still Jenny from the block.
