Is Netflix Overrated ?

Posted by driveout on October 23, 2011

Many of us seen Netflix commercials on T.v. and wondered if its really that good. So, I decided to give it a try.

First, it costs about 8 dollars a month which I find reasonable. However, the movies they provide on instant Netflix blow. This is not the case always as I have managed to find a few good movies to watch. Just to clarify, Instant Netflix is where you watch movies and shows directly on your tv via streaming. That said, the movies I usually try to watch are never on Instant Netflix !! Instead they are available on DVD from Netflix. This means they have to send it out to you. Which in my opinion it sucks because you wont be able to watch the movie tonight as you planned, and you can only order 1 movie at a time. I also believe its a few dollars extra if you want to have the DVD option available. In general if you want to watch new movies or movies that have been out but are really good, then Netflix is not for you. On the other hand if your interested in older type movies then Netflix should do a pretty good job keeping you busy.

For some reason it looks like Netflix does not update movies as often as they say they do. Instead of adding new movies to the categories I get a feeling they just shuffle them to make it seem as new movies were added. Plus the “New Movies” are typically old movies from the 90’s. However, every now and then a good movie will pop out.  That said it also matters on the audience. If your from the new generation and would like to watch all the new cool stuff then stay away from Netflix. But if your an elderly then some of the older movies and shows will bring some memories back.

One thing I do like about Netflix is that they have a good selection of TV shows, such as: Family Guy, Weeds, Prison Break, 70s show, and more. This is the only good thing I can say about Netflix. That’s because Netflix painted a picture that its suppose to be a great place for movies, which its not! So, I think your better of renting movies from blockbuster in order to watch something worth while.

This is my experience, I found Battle LA on Netflix and I was like no way! they have that out already, nice I will have something to watch for tonight. So, I look at the cover and the date it came out and it seems legit to me. I think it said 2010 or whenever the movie came out. I start playing it and its a remake !! Acting is shitty, camera effects are horrible and I was like wtf mate ! Then I look at it again and what do I see, Its not Battle La Its Battle of LA. Wow 2 different fucking movies. GREAT, 😦 way to post up the shitty movie Netflix. Well that’s all I got to say about Netflix, I really do think its overrated as half of their content blows. All my friends that tried Netflix were disappointed with it as well. But who am I to tell you whats good and not, since Netflix does offer 1 month for free, give it a try.

It gets a 5/10
