What’s up with Netflix? They tell me the #1 movie in my queue, Ink, which I desperately wanted to review for next week, is available NOW. Then, they send me the #2 movie in my queue instead. So, you won’t get that Ink review this week. Instead, you’ll get a review of Powder, as well as that great double-feature that gets to the heart of Havana soul, Cuban Story and Cuban Rebel Girls. Throw in some mix of reviews of Uwe Boll’s House of the Dead, Absurdistan, Richard Kelly’s The Box, and the undead baby flick Grace, and you’ve got yourself a week.
As for the weirdest search term used to locate the site this week, we’ll go with “www.doctor.assess.movies.com.” I can only guess that the searcher was looking for a very specific website of film reviews by a M.D.; sadly, it doesn’t seem to exist. Hope you liked our site instead.
In related news, we’re proud to say that last week we came up #1 on Google for the popular search term, “weirdest sex movies.” Surely people searching for that phrase are hoping to find descriptions of Lucia y el Sexo and Girl Slaves of Morgana le Fay. It marks a refreshing change from all the people who accidentally stumble on the site looking for porn.
