One of my brothers is addicted to bootleg movies, lol... In his defense he has an injury that makes it tough for him to go to a movie theater, but he has my other brother go to flea markets and buy them {I admit I had to do it a few times too, lol}... In his situation he has a lot of free time and loves movies, so it keeps his mind in the right place...

I respect that but where I work and live it's hard not to come across someone who has a friend, aunt, uncle, etc who are or know someone who's involved in the industry in one form or another who has access to dvd screeners that inevitably get passed around. Many of these also get copied and are sold by street vendors here.
And if someone brought me a copy of a current movie which I might be interested in whether an original screener or a bootleg copy I am not going to say no. I'm going to cozy up in the comfort of my own home and watch it.

"Get Low," starring Robert Duval and Sissy Spacek. Good movie.

How I love the Netflix DVD library.

Netflix never seems to have current-ish movies we want to watch, so last night we saw "Jane Eyre." I'd heard about bits and pieces of it over the years. It's nice to have finally have seen the movie. DH enjoyed it, even with the lack of gunfire and explosions.

I've nearly stopped ordering up Netflix DVDs of current movies -- the previews are endless and I've had several of them arrive broken or with sticky stuff on them. Of course, I don't work in an office where the latest films are the topic of the day so it doesn't matter if I keep up. I don't mind how old a movie is if it's good.

I just watched another oldie, "Things Change," with Joe Montegna and Don Ameche. It was better than I expected, and who should turn up in bit parts but W. H. Macy (in a blonde flat-top haircut) and Felicity Huffman. That's part of the fun of old movies for us dinosaurs, seeing actors as they started out in Hollywood.

I have Netflix's streaming only account and I'm happy with that. I also access my daughter's Hulu+ account and I like their streaming content as well. I watch something from them almost nightly. I get my money's worth with Netflix.

Yes, I saw that was coming up, I didn't read more than the synopsis in case there were spoilers.
