Movie Watching

Just before we signed our leese on Fried Chicken Drive I signed up for the Blockbuster Online Movies. Before I moved Gostomski told me that Netflix because they have a faster deleivery. I will admit that may be true, but here is why I signed up with Blockbuster not only do you get 1 free store rental a week, you can take the movies sent you and return them to the store and pick up another movie for free.

Let me brake it down this way. In the mail I get A Muppets Christmas Carol, The Wife and I watch it, I take it back and pick up Little Miss Sunshine at the store, then Blockbuster sends me Ray. To compound that we signed up for the three movies at once deal so those three movies become 6-7 per week if not more!

So in the first month of this deal here are the movies we watched with my little rating on each movie.

  1. A Christmas Story B+
  2. Saints and Soldiers A
  3. Ferris Bueller's Day Off B+
  4. Christmas With the Kranks C-
  5. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation B
  6. The Muppet's Christmas Carol B-
  7. The Manchurian Candidate C-
  8. Pirates of the Caribbean 2 B+
  9. Little Miss Sunshine C
  10. Invincible A-
  11. Lady in the Water C+
  12. Clerks 2 B-
  13. Thank you for Smoking C
  14. An America Haunting C
  15. Hostel D-
  16. Cars B
The we still have two at the house
  1. Garden State
  2. Four Brother
So with in a month we have watched 16 movies and the plan cost 18 dollars a month. We are averaging a dollar a movie. I don't know how much longer we can last at the torrid pace, but I think I'm getting bed sores from sitting and watching so many movies.

I can't believe you gave the Christmas Vacation a B. That has got to be one of the classic "A" list movies of all time. It never gets old. I like to know what your criteria are in grading the movies!

PS - Miss you guys...hope everything is going great!

Well I did sit there for a few minutes on Christmas Vacation and I thought about an A, but I don't know. I can watch it over and over, but only around Christmas so that's why it got a B

I'm just surprised you watched Hostel. I thought you stayed away from horror flicks?

J Dog said...

Well The Wife watched Hostel and she hated it.

What? Little Miss Sunshine at a C? What? It was a great flick. Perhaps you've watched too many movies and may be a little worn when one eats too much pizza.

oh...and garden state was fantastic.
