if there's one thing i love in this world, it is netflix.
my dad signed my family up for netflix back when we had the first dvd player in our neighborhood, back when we got 4 dvds at a time.
netflix and i have had a long and loving relationship.
and since it seems that every day they are adding more wonderful things to watch, let's consider this part one of a never ending series called, things you should watch on netflix.
this is movie edition, because i just can't fit movies and tv into one post, it's too much.
so next time you're bored and looking for a movie on netflix, here's a few that i love.
i know. you are like, "abbi. that movie poster is cheesy. this movie has jesse mccartney in it. it's actually ~called keith. also it has jesse mccartney in it." but y'all, bear with me on this one. this is a great and wonderful movie. i was a skeptic like you, until years ago a friend recommended to me and i thought "why not" so i watched it and 5 minutes after it was done i bought it on amazon because i had to own it immediately. word of wisdom: do NOT look up any kind of synopsis for this movie. just don't. watch it without any prior knowledge because it's so much better that way.
jesus christ superstar.
guys. okay, one time in like 2001 they made this other version of this musical and y'all, it was the worst. they filmed it on like two stages in london and the guy who played jesus looked like yanni and i was just offended. but this, this version is so wonderful. one of my favorite musicals of all time, and i think the film does it justice. watch it.
a league of their own.
honestly, if you have not seen a league of their own i don't even know what you're doing on this blog because i live my life for lady heroes and this movie is all about lady heroes.
quirky and funny and a little weird, young anton yelchin becomes a psychiatrist for the kids in his school by offering them therapy and drugs out of his own personal stall in the school bathroom and he looks mighty fine doing it. also, young robert downey jr and also kat dennings and that girl who played paige on degrassi.
the vicious kind.
okay, i want to start this one with a warning. this movie is not for everyone. it has a lot of language and one kind of weird sex scene and is overall just sort of a dark movie. BUT. that being said, i think it is a really interesting story and some of the best acting that adam scott has ever done. also, adam scott with a beard, so.
best in show.
i don't really even know what to say about this movie other than it's hilarious and i feel genuine sadness for people who haven't seen it.
i know. but that guy who plays ren is so gorgeous that it makes it okay.
more anton yelchin.
for those of you who haven't seen this movie, i hesitate to even put this on here because like SAVE YOURSELF. but then i'm like, most everyone i know has seen and cried over this movie, so it's really on here for those who are a glutton for punishment and want to torture themselves again and again.
do you like any of these? what are some of your favorite movies on netflix? i'd love to know if you watch any of them and what you think!
PS. RIP, MOVIES THEY TOOK OFF NETFLIX AND THEN I CRIED:
