Where does the good go

Dawn’s DVD days

After briefly flirting with the crazy bar having, pool playing nightlife, I have reverted to my natural homebody state.
Fisch and I decided to marathon watch the first season of The Wire, so I ended up getting the new “Blockbuster All Access” deal and let me tell you: WOW!
Netflix is so very dead.
I got the first three Wire DVDs from Blockbuster and then the other three from Netflix.
(Please note, this post is a recommendation that you sign up for DVDs from Blockbuster, not that you watch the Wire. The Wire sucks. The only reason people tell you that the Wire does not suck is because they know they have wasted like 10 hours of their lives on a thing which sucks and this makes them bitterly want others to similarly waste their lives, so they lie. Hmm…on second thought, this post is a recommendation both for you to sign up for DVDs from Blockbuster AND the Wire. The Wire is awesome.)
The cool thing with the Blockbuster DVDs is that you can exchange them at any Blockbuster store and get THREE FREE MOVIES in exchange! PLUS, the store mails the DVDs back for you AND you’ll get THREE new ones in the mail!
I used one of the instore rentals to get Dumb and Dumber because Fisch said that it was “really funny. I can’t believe that you have never seen it. You have to get it. You are going to laugh your ass off.”
Now, I don’t know why I didn’t abandon this plan when I saw that the review that the producers put right there ON THE BOX said “This movie is dumb.”
But I didn’t. And boy. Was it.
Honestly, I haven’t found Jim Carrey funny since he left In Living Color and I was kinda disturbed that Jeff Daniels was wasting away in this flick.
Fischel, on the other hand, laughed and laughed.
“Man, I saw this when I was twelve and it was like my favorite movie.”
“When’s the last time you saw it, though?”
“Um…when I was twelve.”
I don’t know why I trusted a man that thought Crash was a good movie until the fourth time he saw it.
Crash sucked. Right there at first sight.
So, in review: cancel your Netflix subscriptions. Go with Blockbuster. Immediately rent the Wire.
And Dumb and Dumber is dumb. No, seriously. Not like ha ha cute dumb. Just dumb. Regular dumb.
Don’t do it.
Unless you are a twelve year old boy.
Or are Fischel, who still thinks like one.

    I’m using Netflix for one very important reason:

    Blockbuster (and every other damn video store) doesn’t have the stuff I want to see in stock. So, the idea of “using a store, etc, etc, etc” is pointless which means that Blockbuster Online is exactly like Netflix to me.

    Wait – Netflix has porn? Where? And if so, what the hell am I doing letting my wife put Ben Affleck movies on the list?

  5. Dawn Summers Says:

    If I’ve said it once…Gib. Funny.

  6. Joe Says:

    Gib, you need jenna, your wife needs Ben.

    Blockbuster edits its movies. You won’t find anything harder than a R rated movie or a NC-17 film watered downed. Netflix is a pain in the butt, but at least the film choices are better. The prestige was pretty good, rent that.

    Dumb and Dumber is like drinking comedy from a fire hose. You didn’t laugh when the cop swigged the piss from the beer bottle? When the hitman was accidentally given his own rat poison? The Peppers? Riding the mini bike into Aspine? Killing the endangered bird with the champagne cork? What exactly do you consider funny?

    “how’d he die? his head fell off…he was ooldd.” was funny. the rest of the stuff you mention, not so much.
