    Netflix Thread

    With plenty of time to watch movies... what are you watching or streaming

    I'd like to plug beer wars (currently available on instant queue). If you are into Craft Beer it is a must see.

    Just watched Best in Show yesterday. It was always one of those movies that I meant to get around to but never did. It wasn't as good as I had hoped, probably becuase the anticipation had built for so long.

    That's one of those movies that I would describe as "painfully funny." With that genre, you laugh but you also wince at the stupidity/awkwardness/etc.

    I'm currently trying to watch/rewatch every James Bond movie. Unfortunately not every one is on Watch Instantly so I'm gonna have to buckle down and order the remaining ones by mail.

    I did that in high school and might try to do it again.

    IMHO, the Bond series offers the very best of the action genre.

    But it's also really cool to note the historical style and cultural changes as the series progressed.

    Indeed. It is interesting to note different cultural changes. Whether it is Bond getting facial reconstruction to "look Asian" (You Only Live Twice) or blatent themes of Blaxploitation (Live and Let Die), times have definitely changed. You could definitely make a college course in the study of Bond films and their cultural context.

    I've started Dexter and Arrested Development recently. Definitely enjoying both series.

    I actually enjoyed the Tudors series as well. Although I'm a history guy.

    That's what I like about GoldenEye - that was the first Bond movie filmed after the fall of the Soviet Union. It wasn't a coincidence that it was the first movie to actually be filmed in part in Russia (most notably St. Petersburg). It also gave us the first female M (aka the "beancounter" Judi Dench).
