Why Netflix! WHY!

Sorry for missing out last week. I took a little break because I received some good news. I got my acceptance letter into Graduate School! I’ve been on edge for two months! I’m happy to finally have the suspense end. Anyway, sorry for missing a post but I’ll do my best to keep up!

So moving on to what this post it about. I’m flipping out about the beloved shows that are leaving Netflix. We’re losing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Roswell, and The X-Files. I’m annoyed because these were the best shows growing up and sometimes I just want to watch something that isn’t crap on TV. I already mentioned in the last post about Buffy being one of the main reasons I love the horror genre. I guess it was nice to have easy access to this show. I’ll have to save my pennies know to just by the box sets for these shows. This way I’ll always have them.

Yeah I realize that it’s probably a licensing thing and that maybe it’ll come back. But that’s what they said about Doctor Who and I’m not holding my breath about that one coming back ANYTIME soon. So right now I’m binging Roswell because I can recall most of Buffy, Angel, X-Files, and Firefly. I remember some of Roswell but it’s kinda fuzzy.

So enjoy it while you can guys…..

 

Laugh til you pee with Dead Snow 2

2

Dead Snow 2 released Oct. 2014 in Norway but is now available (in English) on Netflix

Director: Tommy Wirkola Writers: Tommy, Wirkola, Stig Frode Henriksen, and Vegar Hoel

Starring: Vegar Hoel, Orjan Gamst, and Martin Starr

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014) is a gut busting horror comedy film from Norway. Nazi zombies (and a tank) battle Soviet zombies, nerds, a gay guy, and a one-armed Norwegian dude (from the first movie, apparently) in the snow. Thankfully this smart, hilarious new take on the zombie genre is on Netflix for we, Americans, to wet our pants over.

I’ve seen so many zombie movies I’ve kinda burned myself out, but Dead Snow 2 is a revelation. It’s original, fast-paced, and unapologetically campy. I can’t remember when I’ve laughed so hard. Damsel Bruja and I watched this film together on a weeknight and loved it. This is definitely a movie to watch with your friends piled high on a couch with an open box of pizza and cold beers. Definitely watch this movie with beer. The drunker you are the funnier it gets. True story.

A+ for Dead Snow 2. Trashy entertainment at its finest!
