Netflix, Thou Art My New Best Friend

2.02.2006

Ok, this is quite pitiful. You've been warned.

Herman left today for Asia (China, Thailand, Taiwan), which leaves me alone for the next 2 or so weeks. Usually, I'd be super busy with school without any time to really notice his absence (just kidding, of course), but this trip, I'm finishing up a light wintersession, with my winter break the week after next.

So what's a person to do? Watch lots and lots of movies of course. So we signed up for the free trial of netflix, plus one month. Here's what we recently watched together:

Crash (I'd already seen it, he hadn't. Still incredible.)
Transporter 1 & 2 (guilty pleasures. Handsome Rob. Great car scenes. Absolutely no substance whatsoever)
The Upside of Anger (eh)
Infernal Affairs (Actually a really good movie. They're making an American version, "loosely based" on this one)
Fever Pitch (Jimmy Fallon was surprisingly fun to watch, especially at 2.00 in the morning. Or maybe because it was 2.00 in the morning.)

But now that Herman's gone, I can really dive into some movies that I've been wanting to see. Next up in my queue:

The Baxter
The Constant Gardener
Junebug
The Chumscrubber
Me and You and Everyone We Know
Thumbsucker
Broken Flowers

Yeah, yeah...I'm slacking a bit. But in two weeks I won't have time to watch any tv, so I'm getting my fill now. Seizing the day and all.

wish you could come here with herman to be my best friend for a week... or at least watch some movies with me while the guys find adventurous & quasi-safe things to do in thailand during their free time.
