Casa Clementina recently became a member of Netflix. Thus far, we've only viewed two movies. The first was the latest and not so greatest Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Our chagrin was a result not of the movie and its plot or lack thereof; rather, it was the time frame in which the story was told. Two and a half hours of my life were taken from me, people. At least an hour of that was most definitely not needed. Our level of disappointment was amplified by the fact that Lil Miss Thang woke up the following morning at about 4:30 am.
The second movie viewed was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Can you tell that Rocket Man has been the only one making the list on Netflix? Anyway...this one was better because it took place in an hour and a half. A completely acceptable time-frame for that type of movie.
What I am looking for from you, my readers, is suggestions for future movie-watching of the Netflix variety. The movies don't have to be short (as may have been implied thus far in this here post), but if they are long-ish then the length needs to be warranted. Also, although we like to think, we'd rather not watch a movie that is so deep that our heads explode.
One last helpful hint: we were out of the country from early 2006 until early 2008, and because of the whole I was pregnant and we were establishing ourselves here in Houston thing, we basically haven't watched any movies since we left for Spain in 2006. What this means for all of you is that any good movies you've seen in the last four years or so are totally game.
If you have some movies that you think are worth watching, please leave a comment (click on the blue link at the bottom right corner of this post...you know, the one that most often says "0 comments") telling us what you suggest. Likewise, if there are movies that got all sorts of hype (Transformers, I might be sneaking a look at you) but wasn't really up to par, feel free to let us know.
Seriously, people: HELP!
