My Netflix Peeps

POST #    1460

Netflix is currently testing this new feature they call Friends. Mike over at Hacking Netflix was nice enough to invite me after I read about it over on his site. It's kind of like Friendster meets communal movie review. You can invite people to your list of friends and see the movies they watched recently, their ratings for movies, their top favorites, and find out the movies that they disliked (click image below to enlarge), a feature that may prove to be very useful.

For example, I can see that one of my friends gave The Prince and Me three stars. While I'm generous with my starts, I can't imagine watching The Prince and Me, let alone giving it three stars - and I watch a lot of crap movies. I can also see that there are a bunch of movies that I should never watch with the "Movies Your Friends Hated" feature. That may allow me to streamline my queue a little, but with all these other movies that my friends liked, I might end up increasing my queue substantially.

The Prince and Me was kind of stupid, because it promotes a sort of Aryan alliance beneath its royalty-meets-commoner story, but for a movie to watch when you're depressed and need not to think about work, it's gold, baby!

Let's have a movie night where we rent every single Hillary Duff film there every was, starting with Agent Cody Banks right down to the most recent Bad voice in the dark, or whatever the heck it's called. While dissing her weird looking face and how she's so young and doesn't know anybetter, we'll throw popcorn at the screen, venting on how much we hate her while our guts get torn up as we feel like crying -- secretly wishing and knowing that we want to be her and everything she stands for.

Hilary Duff (one l in Hilary, mind you) is h-o-t! She has a pretty face.

Fifth Element was so good! 2 1/2 stars? Such a good movie! But word, this feature looks promising...
