Netflix category: “Recently Watched by Virginia” I do not like this category because it will totally OUT you for any movie weirdness. I DO NOT link it to Facebook because I do watch some very oddball stuff. I really enjoy horridly bad science fiction, and there’s nothing quite like a gathering of like-minded folk for a MST3-like viewing of such movies.
Pause: If you don’t know what MST3 is…well, then these aren’t the droids you’re looking for, move along.
Back to the subject at hand…
And there are A LOT of horridly bad science fiction movies.
I simply don’t care for my mother and a few other people to know that I really enjoyed (5 full yellow stars) A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell, 1990.
But, there it is, no matter where you access your Netflix account, the “Recently Watched by Virginia” category that boasts, on occasion, A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell or one of its distant cousins.
These titles upset those that do not “get” the lure of watching and totally wrecking horridly bad science fiction. In fact, their first reaction (usually) is to assume that it’s porn.
Once I convince them that it’s not lewd (usually), I then have to try and explain the genre that is Horridly Bad Science Fiction. HBSF.
They just don’t get it. They don’t get why I would want to watch it, and think I’m cruel to rip the movie to shreds with popcorn and a Coke. Why would I do such a thing? Watch the WHOLE movie like that? Have friends over, too?
I think that Netflix should let me delete anything (that I don’t want my mother to see) in that particular queue. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Think about it.
For now, I’m safe, but I will scratch that itch again. Netflix, please?
Last 5 Netflix movies, as of this writing, are:
- Congo (love that movie!)
- Pink: The Truth About Love Tour (awesome!)
- Godzilla: King of the Monsters (classic)
- The People vs George Lucas (Han shot first, George, just get over it! And no, Jar Jar Binks is not funny!)
- Right at Your Door (actually didn’t finish this one — too much angst)
