a deeper look into...something.
The condition of their desk?
The style and/or color of their bed sheets?
I’m not sure, but I’ll bet real money it’s not half so enlightening as taking a look at what’s in their Netflix queue! (Am I right or am I totally right?)
With that, I offer you the list of what is now in my Netflix queue. Feel free to look at this list as a whole or in part, as one big Mary metaphor, or multiple Mary layers, movies to watch if you want to be like me, or absolutely nothing whatever. I vote for nothing whatever.
CURRENTLY AT HOME:
Get ready to believe. Olivia Newton John will tell you straight. We are magic.
Cool Hand Luke
This is listed as a “Classic”. I definitely recognized the artistic merit of it, but it just left me feeling icky. But that doesn't really matter, because Paul Newman is unbelievably gorgeous. Dirty and Sweaty and Misunderstood and stuff.
Bedknobs & Broomsticks
Traguna. Macoytees. Trecorum. Satis Dee.
IN THE QUEUE:
The Triplets of Belleville
One of those where I can’t believe I haven’t seen it yet.
Wait Until Dark
Audrey Hepburn, blind, suspenseful classic, saw the play never the movie.
I’m trying to be supportive of LDS “art”.
Ladies in Lavender
Never seen it, love the women in it: Maggie Smith, Judi Dench.
Ian McKellan and Judi Dench. Point me to the wrong in this.
You don’t even know what acting is until you’ve seen Dame Judi do her thing in this film. Holy cow.
BTW: At this blog, we have a love for Judi Dench. Not that you didn't see a pattern here. When you're old enough to leave this blog, you can love whomever you want. But so long as you live under THIS BLOG, AND YOU EAT AT THIS BLOG....
(translation: not yet out/Netflix can’t locate/ doesn’t have a copy yet)
The Shaggy Dog
Remember Chiffon?? Tommy Kirk? Fred McMurray? Anyone from old Disney Channel days? Anybody?
House, M.D. Season 2
This. Show. Is. Good. And I think T.V. is of the devil. So that's really saying something.
Sons of Provo
I’m trying to be supportive of LDS “art”. I’m seriously wanting to like at least one of these Excel films. Really.
YOU WILL LOVE THE JUDI DENCH, SO HELP ME HANNAH!!! Are we clear?
And Wait Until Dark is basically the only movie that never fails to scare the holy living crap out of me at that one part.
i have never seen wait until dark! egads!
I love Netflix. If you're lucky I might post my queue. It's full. And I'm still on my free 2 week trial period.
Cat, I can't get addicted to anymore shows especially ones where I know that the entire universe is watching them but me. Lost is totally in that category, and because of that, I refuse. But you're lovely. I'll pray the devil t.v. releases you from its grip of death.
Sarita, I'd LOVE to see your queue, I really do think it's interesting what people want to pick for entertainment. Netflix is pretty righteous. Welcome aboard.
Oh, and Mary, Ladies in Lavender is so nice. I saw it over Christmas with my parents. I think they got it for the same reason: we love Maggie Smith and Judi Dench.
But that's too personal for me to share you guys. I'm sorry. I'm just a very private person, which is why I write about myself all the time to the entire world.
And I'm also very excited about Ladies in Lavender now. I smell a new favorite on the horizon.
Just got my email from Netflix, I'm getting Triplets and Wait Until Dark TODAY! Happy weekend!
I MUST have them, to show my children what cartoons were like when they weren't mindless and vulgar.
As the person who introduced Mary to House, I must defend my Housie. The fact that people despise the character so much tells me Hugh Laurie is really good at what he does. I appreciate the obnoxiousness.
