73% Of Subscribers Would Download Netflix Content

Since it first debuted in 2007, Netflix’s streaming video service has remained largely unchanged. A lot of content has come and (mostly) gone, but the basic idea – that of a streaming, web-based service – has stayed the same. That may not be the case for long. Netflix is reportedly considering adding offline functionality, which

74% of Netflix Subscribers Would Rather Cancel Their Subscription Than See Ads

In its early days as a streaming service, Netflix wasn’t just the biggest and best company on the block – it was the only one. In those heady days, Netflix was able to charge low subscription rates and still provide a catalog that included just about everything. As we’ve seen, that’s been changing. With new

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

Charlie Kaufman films are always a challenge, but in sifting through the unusual plot and non-liner zigzags of a narrative you will be rewarded with a level of emotional honesty that is largely unknown in Hollywood. The screenwriter/producer’s movies sit squarely in the “quirky” camp, “Indiewood” fare that is neither a truly independent film nor

Sunset Boulevard (1950)

The combination of one of the best L.A. film noir narratives, ties to filmmaking reality, and exceptional performances by actors needing to remind audiences why they were once famous is what elevates Sunset Boulevard beyond the outlandishness, and what helped secure its spot as one of the true Hollywood greats. Even if you’ve never seen

Chaplin (1992)

The magnitude of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (not to mention Guy Richie’s big screen Sherlock Holmes) has overshadowed Robert Downey Jr.’s previous work, and his incredible acting ability has been hidden underneath CGI suits and elaborate action spectacles. Many in his repertoire should be forgotten (Two Girls and a Guy, Friends and Lovers, and anything

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Recommending 2001: A Space Odyssey is always problematic. It’s a difficult film to watch, and not one which should be a casual weeknight choice. Criticisms (often ignored by critics and academics) commonly made against it are accurate: the movie is long, strange, and can be boring to many viewers. The first twenty-five minutes or so
