Is Voltron worth watching? i've just finished the last season of black mirror and i don't now what's the next show that i'll be watching.

Avatar image for osxgp

I'm tired of Netflix removing shows that are worthwhile and filling space with movies like Wild Wild West. They are relying too much on original programs; which many are great, but I don't want to have to get Hulu to watch what Netflix keeps letting go of like American Dad, Futurama, and others.

Avatar image for SaberStrike


Defenders, too!

Avatar image for e3man01

Boo! Wild, Wild West blowz serious donkey ballz!

Avatar image for mirage_so3

They keep getting rid of the good adult cartoons. Got rid of all the good Futurama, got rid of Bob's Burgers, got rid of King of the Hill a long time ago. Now they're getting rid of part of American Dad too.

Avatar image for osxgp

@mirage_so3: Netflix is relying too much on their original programming and letting key shows that I love watching go to Hulu when that was the original reason I signed up with their service. I don't want multiple subscriptions to every company who wants to copy the Netflix format.

Avatar image for SirNormanislost

@hankosanko: different region? You're blind?

Avatar image for hankosanko

@SirNormanislost: ok where dose it say that? i dont see it do you?

Avatar image for SirNormanislost

@hankosanko: well it doesn't say what region it's reffering to so via the process of elimination if you can't find it you're either in the wrong region or blind

August 21st is coming on August 20th, best movie of all times

Avatar image for LexLas

I just watched small soldiers last night, one of the fun movies to watch with the kids.

Avatar image for snugglebear

Thank god. I've been waiting years for Brad Paisley's Comedy f$%*ing Roundup.

Avatar image for wolfpup7

I just barely got finished with Young Justice (which was awesome). At least they give some warning...

Avatar image for knolddasker

@wolfpup7: Young Justice will come back with a new season soon. Even though i found it a bit childish

Avatar image for normanislost

well I think it's been long enough, time to rewatch the matrix

Avatar image for thageorgian

@normanislost: just rewatched it all few days ago, was deff worth

Avatar image for tonyleo01

@normanislost: same. I barely remember the movie now outside the memes.

Avatar image for normanislost

@normanislost: i'm not sure what it says about you for noticing that was even added in the first place

August 8th is an exclusive day in honor of all the Playstation fanboys. They will celebrate with joy.

Avatar image for brxricano

Let it be known ffs, that Eddie "Illiterati" Makuch has the ONLY COPY of Wild West West (as he has typed it out in the article). The rest of us are stuck with the Will Smith flop, Wild Wild West. We are all inferior in relation to Eddie's collection.

He doesn't expect anyone to read his articles. You're supposted to just look at the headline and sub-headline.

Avatar image for tingtong

Whats with all these porno’s? Wet Hot American Summer, Holes, Naked, Hot Property..

Avatar image for olander

Those Justice League cartoons are so good. I actually binged watched it a few weeks ago when I heard it was going to be removed from Netflix. Though the original first 2 seasons was better than unlimited.

Avatar image for wolfpup7

@olander: Yeah, they're great. Young Justice is good too (which I barely had time to finish-just finished last night).

Avatar image for waelse1

Wild Wild West is the worst movie Wil Smith has or will ever make.

Avatar image for lokostilll

@waelse1: Fun Fact: Will Smith passed on the role of Neo in Matrix because of Wild Wild West so I am thankful it was made lol.

Avatar image for streetmagik

@waelse1: I don't know, that M. Night turdfest he did with his son is definitely up there.

edit: I guess if I would have looked down, I would've realized someone already said this. Oh well.

Avatar image for jcharp

@waelse1: I dunno man, After Earth was pretty unwatchable. I like Smith just fine but watching him desperately try to give his talentless kids a career got pretty uncomfortable for a while there.

Avatar image for saturatedbutter

@waelse1: I think you mean Wild West West

Avatar image for lonewolf1044

@waelse1: Yeah I thought it stunk too, I didn't find it that funny and it wasn't just him.

Avatar image for wolfpup7

@lonewolf1044: Yeah, it was almost unbearable IMO.

Avatar image for michael-ibbett

Can't wait for defenders...finishing luke cage, and watched both daredevils...gonna try to watch Jessica but I couldn't get past an episode of iron fist

Avatar image for jcharp

@michael-ibbett: Iron Fist wasn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be, but it's certainly not as good as it could have been. At the very least, it would have been better if they'd spent more time on the fight choreography. It should have been at least as good as Daredevil, but it wasn't even close. I also could have done without all the corporate drama.

Avatar image for olander

@michael-ibbett: Iron Fist gets a little better. Give it a few more episodes. It takes awhile. But if you don't like Kung fu type shows/movies. Then it won't get better at all.

Avatar image for Prats1993

Good to see Tarantino's best film coming to Netflix.

Avatar image for ProjektInsanity

@Prats1993: I don't think it's even close to his best. I still have to hand that to "Plup Fiction," with a close second to "Reservoir Dogs," and a close third to "Kill Bill, Vol. 2."

As for single scenes, although he wasn't the director, his writing in the scene of "True Romance" between Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper is damn iconic. Both actors were also brilliant.

Avatar image for darthrevenx

@Prats1993: IDK about best but Jackie Brown was really good...

i'd kinda say the kill Bill ones are the best cus they kinda linked the other movies together....

Michael Madsen's sword was the one Travolta used in Pulp

the suitcase we see in Pulp is what the resivior Dogs crew stole....

in Jackie they mention the snake charmer, that's Bill, his female assassin squad all having snake codenames.....

there's a few other bits here and there too.....but it's epic how all the movies are connected loosely.....each one works on it's own first and part of the rest second and it's cool....

Avatar image for wolfpup7

@darthrevenx: IMO Kill Bill is EASILY the best, but Jackie Brown was really good too. (I can't actually remember one of his I haven't liked, though I haven't seen everything, I don't think.)

Avatar image for darthrevenx

@wolfpup7: Yeah, I like a lot of Tarantino's stuff too but haven't seen Grindhouse, Django Unchained or Hateful Eight yet......

I intend to see Django and Hateful at some point though.....

Avatar image for wolfpup7

@darthrevenx: Yeah, I haven't seen the latter two. I forgot about Grindhouse...I did hate that actually.

Avatar image for normanislost

@darthrevenx: Madisons character in Dogs and Travoltas character in Pulp are brothers and were meant to get a film together but both aged to much for it

Uma Thurman tells Travolta about her TV series pilot she was in during the diner scene, she lists the cast members who are actually the characters from Kill Bill (Tarantino and Uma had been working on the bride script long before kill bill)

there's loads and loads of these little connections

Avatar image for lonewolf1044

@darthrevenx: Wow never knew, good lookout!

Gomorrah s2!

Avatar image for blade256

Looking forward to seeing the Matrix trilogy again. It's been awhile.

Avatar image for blade256

@darthrevenx: Cool. My plan is to watch 'em back to back to back, lol.
