Waiting for the DVD from Netflix

Out of the 254 movies I've seen so far this year, I saw only 21 of them in the theatre. Last year, I saw 91 movies in the theatre. At the rate I'm going, I will have seen about half that number this year. It's because I get a constant stream of titles from Netflix, that I can't bring myself to leave the house and spend the extra money to see a film that I know I can add to my queue instead.

I used to feel like I had to see them all in the same year in which they were released, so I could be ready for the Academy Awards. I managed to see about 96% of the nominees last year. This year, I don't care. The Academy Awards are a joke. I saw so many good performances that didn't even get nominated. Academy members are lazy. They don't see the most worthy films, just the ones with the best hors d'oeuvres.

Besides, it'll all be out on Netflix soon enough.

    256 movies. You have got to be joking. Where do you find the time for all this.

    I suggest you take up some valuntry work to occupy your time. Better still, listen to radio. Here is a link.

    Since February we have been nursing our cocker spaniel back to good health after 2 surgeries. He still has steel pins poking out of his hind leg that require daily care. We'd hate to leave him home alone in his condition. Our online rentals have come in handy although I would have liked to see the new Star Wars movie in the theater.
