Woohoo! My DVD player arrived today. Well, actually there was a UPS delivery attempt made while I wasn't home. And they were going to keep coming back at the same time for the next two business days, only to find I would still not be home. So I schlepped my way to Downtown Los Angeles to my pick-up center. I had to do the same thing to get my camera. There was a time when I could rearrange my schedule enough to be available at 12:30 midday. But I'm too busy now [which is a good thing].
A n y w a y ... That's not the point.
I'm sitting here with the DVD player still in its box. I've signed up for my free trial with Netflix.
And I'm overwhelmed with the selection. I know what I like.
But it's taking forever to choose. It's been an hour and I think
I have six so-so titles lined up. I can have up to 500 DVDs in my
queue. I can't imagine I'll need that many waiting for their time
to be viewed by me. Nevertheless, I need help.
I'm finding I'm drawn to documentaries and independent/art films. But I love a good hearty laugh - silly even. Like Airplane! and Better Off Dead. I definitely need to keep the balance.
So please, I'm looking for recommendations. What are your favorite movies? What are those must-see-DVDs? All categories welcome!
Oh, and I notice In America has finally been released on DVD. That's my recommendation for you!
