Alright, it's time to debut a new feature. A couple of weeks ago, I was searching my stat counter info for all the people that came to The Site and The Blog and looked up the keywords they used to come here. Among all these weird interesting words like "hairy-bears-chain-match-cage-fight-hotel-wrestling" (I have no idea), one thing kept popping up. "best bad/b-movies on Netflix". I figured well if people are Googling it and they end up here anyway, I might as well help out. So every Thursday, I'll suggest one or two awesomely bad movies you can find on Netflix, either DVD or Instant Watch.
So to start us off is one of my favorite recent discoveries, "Popcorn" from 1991.
I've reviewed this in the past but really if you love old fashioned B-Movies, you really need to check it out. You get three fake movies inside a movie about a slasher. It's like every great genre combined. You can't go wrong. It is currently only on Instant Watch but a group of fans have gotten together and are working on releasing a Special Fan Edition on DVD and Blu-Ray sometime in the future. I honestly can't wait for that.
With that done, here's the second part of the Netflix Corner: The Netflix Game! I made a post a month or two ago about the awful movie descriptions Netflix gives to movies and made up some examples. That was a lot of fun so I thought well, let's do that again and make it a regular game! Huh? Let's do this!
The rules are simple: I'm gonna give the Netflix description of three movies and you have to guess what movies I'm talking about. Now, the descriptions are NOT real, I'm making them up so don't go searching. Hard is worth 3 points, medium is 2 points, and easy 1 point.
1. Hard: In order to succeed, a man must re-learn everything he didn't learn the first time around.
2. Medium: An unclean cop who loves big weapons must stop a serial killer.
3. Easy: Two guys who hate their job talk about relationships, pop culture, and awful customers.
And that's it. Good luck!
