My wife picks most of the Netflix stuff we get. I don't watch many of them.

She seems to pick pretty much anything with "poignant" in the description, or some kind of indie film, or a documentary.

Sometimes she picks really good movies.


Sometimes she picks movies that are the opposite of good. Like...light years from good.


DO NOT WATCH THE MOVIE "SHORT BUS".

EVER.

My wife picks since her movies won't give me nightmares.

Tho "Dreamgirls" did come close. I was as baked as I was in years and it still sucked.

I do. She will watch a wider variety of movies than I will watch. So anything I pick she is usually OK with. Once in a while Ill recommend some chick-flick I know she wants to see.

Does she like violence or do you not?


Like I know my woman wouldn't like "Shoot 'em Up", but it rocked. Same with "Smoking Aces".

I walked in while my roommate was watching the three way blowjob scene.

It was horrifying.

My corneas were scared.

What's worse is that they were singing, while doing it.

I am forever haunted.

Fortunately, my wife hates the whole chick-flick genre. I usually pick the movies unless there's something out that she really wants to see...which is ok because it won't be some sappy romance bull crap.

My favorite movies are action/suspense movies (anything to display the HDTV & surround). She liked Shooter and Live Free Die Hard.

If it has Chuck Norris, Van Damme or boobs in it she veto's it. Anything else is fair play.

I can't get her to watch any horror movies with me.

She had never seen The Exorcist and I made her watch that with me about 1 year after we started dating. It made her very, very upset. I don't think she ever really forgave me for that.

In fact, I think putting SHORT BUS on our dvd player last night was some sort of revenge.

I got about 2 minutes in and walked out of the room.

Indie film that is completely unrated. And stupid.


I booked after the opening scene of the guy attempting auto-fellatio.
Did she watch the whole movie?

I cant think of the last movie I turned off or walked away from. I was on a roll of picking crappy movies for a while, I lost my rite to pick movies because of it.

I stack the queue to about 15 and then she goes in a picks some random crap but ALWAYS pushes it to the top. Then after getting 2 foreign and 3 kids movies in a row, I go in and reshuffle.

I'm lucky, we are both fans of the weird & horror. This is the guide that we have made many selections with. Awesome.



Avatar mat'l as well. Currently it's Ralphus, the true to life most deviant dwarf to have ever walked the earth.

I got tired of the GF movies cluttering up my queue, so I set up separate queue’s for each of us. My queue consists of horror, sci-fi and action movies. Her's is old movies, chick flicks and comedies.

If something appeals to both of us then we watch together.
