Until very recently, I had successfully avoided joining NetFlix. It seemed silly for me to pay even more money per month for movies than I do now with all my digital cable movie channels and my DVR. Upon the recommendation of a friend, I decided to check it out. Within about five minutes of joining, I was hooked. I've been on NetFlix for about two weeks and have already changed my membership from one at a time, unlimited DVDs per month to two at a time, unlimited DVDs per month.
I've also rated over 1,000 movies and have about 60 or 70 movies in my queue. I rated some of the movies 5 stars not based on quality but based on how much I liked them. For example, I gave The Burbs and Honeymoon in Vegas each 5 stars because I loved them and not because either of them are award-worthy films. The more movies you rate, the better NetFlix becomes in recommending movies for you. This is especially helpful for obscure titles and foreign films which I love discovering.
Click here to become my NetFlix friend and you can see my queue, what movies I have at home and all of my ratings. Oh, and I can see yours, too. I'm a very nosy girl.
