Movie Monday - Netflix Meme

Okay, so I have been really lax in my movie watching this week. But mainly this is due to my wife, our kids and I trying to catch up on season finales and all that stuff that builds up on the DVR. Add in Red Sox games, and life itself, and movies fell by the wayside.

So when Gilligan over at Retrospace did a "Ten Movies in Your Netflix Queue" meme, I was one happy blogger. (Thanks, Gilligan - I like memes, too!)

Here are the ten movies at the top of our Netflix Queue.

(Remember, this queue is used by me, my wife, our 13-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son.)

1. 10 Things I Hate About You (My daughter's choice, she is gaga over Heath Ledger.)

2. Essence of Echoes (I have had this in the queue for a long time, and keep moving it down in favor of something else. May just let it go through this time and get it over with.)

3. Lakeview Terrace (My wife chose this one, she likes thrillers. I am looking forward to it, too.)

4. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (My son chose this last week, but at the last minute asked me to switch it with MLB Bloopers, which we just finished watching. Good choice!)

5. Rest Stop (Have been looking forward to this one. Maybe Essence of Echoes will lose it's spot once more. hahaha)

6. Babel (Heard it was good, but keep moving it down. Mainly I haven't been in the mood for a heavy movie lately.)

7. Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus (Oh boy - forgot about this one. Really want to see this, and my daughter does, too. Might be moving up the list ASAP!) [Don't judge me!]

8. And Then There Were None (My choice, I love old mysteries and Agatha Christie, but haven't ever seen this movie. Will be a good time when it gets to the top of the list.)

9. Doubt (Have heard good things about this one, so it moved up the list pretty quick.)

10. Live Feed (Don't remember when or why I added this movie. Doesn't have a good rating. Hmm...)

So, there you go, our top 10 out of the 263 movies in our queue. Yes, 263 movies. Some, way down on the list, just sit there, waiting for some one's fancy (or memory) to strike.

I wish Netflix would add more movies to their Instant queue, so that we could watch them when we want without waiting. My wife and I have done this a few times and found it quite handy.

So, those of you who do have Netflix (or Blockbuster) queues... What's your 10?


  1. nothing in queue, but you have a few good ones on the list...Benjamin Button was quite a curious movie...Babel, I did enjoy. Just watched Atonement tonight, interesting. I have several out at the theatres I would love to see but will wait for at least the dollar theatre. The new Star Trek is high on that list.

  2. I think the only way I would watch Benjamin Button would be if the lives of my family were at stake... and then I would have to think about it.

    Great list - a lot like mine in that you have a bunch reserved for the family. Let me know when you've watched all 263 in the queue!

  3. What is Rest Stop? who is up next to pick? It's not the 11 year old - and I don't think it's me - you? Or the 13 year old?

  4. Hi Friend,! Congratulations for this nice looking blog. In this post everything about Web Development. I am also interested in latest news, Great idea you know about company background. Increasing your web traffic and page views Add, add your website in

  5. i watched Benjamin Button the other day under protest. it wasn't terrible actually. it's a bit long but it has a lot of brilliant moments. when it was over though i said aloud "well don't have to watch that again." it's almost 3 hrs long and doesn't drag (much).

    right now the top ten in my queue is seasons 2,3 and 4 of Rescue Me. just started watching it again and it's really great. i might make room on the list for Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus though. sounds banannas.

  6. Brian: The dollar theater is always a good option. Star Trek will be well worth it!

    Gilligan: Yeah, that is a long time coming, since we are always adding more to the list!

    Ravyn: The 13-year-old. And she has the "10 Things I Hate About You" flick up next.

    william: Uh, okay. No thank you, but I appreciate you stopping by.

    wiec?: Hopefully we will both enjoy "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus"!
