The only thing I don't like about Netflix, so far, is that it seems every movie you really, really, want to view, is only available through DVD, I mean you can order it, but can't stream it...frustrating, as if they can read your mind.
Just a few classics you have to order on dvd
1. Rumble Fish
2. Drug Store cowboy
Two classic Matt Dillan movies during his prime, and there's others.
Plenty of other movies though, just seems the super special ones you've been waiting years to view, you have to order DVD instead, that's cool to, but I'm a 'now' type, I want to view it when I want to view it, not a week later when arrives in the mail...
'The Presence' is basically 'Paranormal Activity' with different cast and setting, but based on same premise.
Here's my thing, a lot of these newer generation horror movies are decent, their problem is they drag on way to long, and start repeating themselves.
A good horror movie really only needs to be 30-40 minutes, not a hour and a half.
'The Presents' has some good spooky moments, but stops being believable when the humans stick around way longer than average people would, most people get scared once, and that's it, and then they're out of there...but in these movies, the dwellers seem to stick around far longer than common sense would dictate.
1. Door slams open and shut...Actor - 'Is that you Elma?' (duh) obviously it's not Elma if Elma is sleeping next to you.
Or the Characters keep begging for proof that entity exists, and the entities give them that proof over and over again, yet characters still not convinced.
I mean even the average nightmare a person has lasts less than a minute, if that, more like 30 seconds or less before person wakes up, yet these movies drag on for over an hour, so that soon it just becomes scene after seen of 'Lets see how much we can spook you'...which then gives movie carnival feel.
Bottom line- these horror movies drag on way to long, unless there's some compelling side story to tell I think average horror movies only needs to be 30-40 minutes long.
After watching documetary based movies on Netflix, like 'Narcos', it's then hard to turn around and watch 'fictional' movies, with actors who fake pretend to play tough roles.
I'm also turned off from most horror or scary movies now that all follow the same exact script.
A lustful males script.
1. Cast model looking female to play victim, get chased, attacked, ect...same o same o.
In other words 'if she agrees to 'casting couch' interview, they've got the role.
Never mind talent or ability to act, just pass casting couch audition.
Hollywood is so fake, and simply a projection of the lusts of those who run it, which is usually older W or older J males.
You're simply seeing their imaginations blown up on film, and their lusts, played out in movies.
Thus why victims always simply a reflection of their lusts, rather than reality based, for if these movies were reality based, there's be a lot more portrayal of victims other than thin blonde or golden haired women, that's for sure.
As if only model looking, fair skinned women can be victims?
Again after watching these real life 'Narco' films of South America, you realize the majority of female victims in this world are not 'W', nor do they look like models that turn low IQ male viewers on.
It's just sad when I find my own imagination less predictable and more scary than scary movies on Netflix or anywhere else.
In my imagination 'W' women aren't the only victims in life, on the world.
Most of the time 'self' is victim, but also animals, males, younger feminine males, older senior Citizen types, those in wheel chairs, minorities, Cross dressers, Lesbians, ugly people, fat people and more, are all victims in my more reality based imagination and dreams, but again mainly self.
But according to those who write movie scripts for Hollywood, unless a thin model looking W babe, you're not a victim of anything.
Netflix coaxing me to come back, they're not bad at all, I simply changed account info and forgot to update.
But funny how you can go weeks without something and not even miss it.
Netflix OK, at least it fills holes on the weekends, usually late night, but even still, the main movies I really want to see, watch, never seem to be available.
Movies are just a way to escape own current situation, whether watching others get chopped up in horror film or watching others laugh and get along in comedy, it's just all an escape....like a wish or something.
A wish that there'd be something more compelling to day to day life than just dull routine.
The days of me going to Walmart and buying movies from the discount movie bin are long gone, gosh I haven't done that in over a year, kind of miss it though, buying older discounted DVD movies you always wanted to watch and own in years past.
I just don't like going out in public period anymore, it all seems like a waste of time to me.
Black Summer, the newest adaptation of zombie genre, but actually it's pretty good, I think I watched whole series in on night, cause it kept me engaged and makes 'the Walking Dead' series seem prehistoric.
The zombies in 'Black Summer' or like a cross between the worse of all zombie/infected movies combined, in that they're 'runners', so they move fast, hard to kill, seem angry. Nothing worse than zombies that run and seem angry.
Angry zombies are scary, especially if run like track stars.
'Black Summer', on Netflix, if you like scary, and engaging, you'll like, at least I did.
