still entertaining myself

Manda and I are still home sick so we finally watched "Must Love Dogs" and "Taxi Driver" off of our netflix list. We've had them since we got back from our honeymoon. After all of that wait, "Dogs" was crap and "Taxi Driver" was scratched to the point that it doesn't play. Figures, I guess.

Anyway, I've been mindlessly rating movies on Netflix for lack of anything else to do. And, again, as I do this it's prompted some funny recommendations. Here are a few that made me laugh. then again, I am sick and a little stir crazy, so this might not be all that funny.

Like foreign independent films and British comedies? Obviously, you might like this:

Picture 4

Netflix calls it "a fascinating documentary that leaves viewers with (pun intended!) much to digest." I call it completely unrelated to any of the things that prompted it to appear on our list.

This one's for you, Ry. I don't know if you've ever seen Cirque du Soleil, but apparently the nexus of "The Fischer King" and crazy circus people equals:

Picture 3

Why "The Fischer King" has anything to do with wanting to learn eastern meditative stretching is beyond me.

Lastly, there was this:

Picture 5

Doesn't Netflix know that Transformers are toys for boys? She-Ra's for girls, damn it. Girls! Stop making me question my masculinity, Netflix.

Some rainy day Must Love Dogs came on the HBO and we thought, "John Cusack, romantic comedy, how bad can it really be?"

We couldn't get through 4 minutes.

We watched the whole thing. It's bad.

Strangest element to the whole thing? There's really no point to the title. Neither character owns a dog. Neither character really seems all that interested in dogs. And to be honest, dogs just kind of randomly show up throughout the film whenever they can be used as half-assed plot devices.

Terrible movie. Even my mom, who LOVES bad romantic comedies, hated it.

And she even loves dogs.

Unlike those schlubs in the movie.
