Day 81 Netflix movies
One of my favorite things is Netflix!
I love movies. Pretty much any type of movie is up my alley and I'll gladly go to a movie with anyone that needs company, just because once I get there, I know I'll enjoy myself no matter what we're watching.
I used to be a regular at Blockbuster when we lived in Collinsville because they rented foreign films and I love those. When we moved to Troy, we had Movie Gallery for a while and their selection was a lot smaller, but they still had some foreign films. I was pretty much a regular there too.
When I got a free trial of Netflix I signed up and I found a little slice of heaven! There are literally thousands of foreign, independent, romantic, comedy, drama, action, etc. movies waiting for me instantly and the newer movies are on DVD, but I can exchange them as frequently as I want or keep them as long as I want without fees. Suh-weet! For $14 a month (2 out at a time) I get all of this joy. Not a bad deal!
Anyway, my rental I just received today was Winter's Bone. I've already seen this movie in the theater, but let me tell ya, it is AWESOME! It is about a girl who is on a mission to find her father in the Ozarks because he has to be present for a court date or they will lose everything. We're talking EXTREME poverty here, and it's not too far away! The girl goes through absolute hell and has to deal with a ton of meth dealers, and all kinds of horrible situations to find him. This movie astounded me the first time watching it and I can't wait to watch it again! It is a must see.
Evidently, this is a movie that is not too far from the truth about this area that is so close to the place I call home. It's scary to think that only about 4 hours from here things go on as terrifying as this. Wowsa.
