You probably have heard, that one of the Duck Dynasty boys was ejected recently from a hotel. He claims, "Facial Profiling." Trust me, we know about "Facial Profiling". Howard has two looks:
|The HomelessMan, Bearded Look|
|The Distinguished Grizzly Adams Look|
I submit to you that sometimes profiling can be quite useful. In fact, I welcome it where Netflix is concerned. We do not have cable, but we have found some other sources of TV and movie entertainment, including Netflix and Hulu. I have especially enjoyed how Netflix allows you to rate movies as you watch them and then, makes recommendations based on your tastes. I have discovered my true taste in movies is not really all that mainstream, and I quite enjoy Netflix recommendations. That is, unless the baby has taken over and watched cartoons all morning.
In that same spirit, here are some of my recommendations for some thought-provoking, lesser known, but just plain good movies.
These first 3 are all foreign movies and subtitled. I have found that some of my faves are, and since I usually turn on captions for everything I watch, this doesn't really bug me.
- Amelie - You might find Amelie to be a little slow going, but also thought provoking.
- Romantics Anonymous is a little bit quirky, but a cute story.
The next 3 are in English, just lesser known.
- The Station Agent stars Peter Dinklage, one of my faves.
- Journey of August King is a period piece set in NC. (Netflix definitely got that one right!)
- Giant Mechanical Man was another winner.
Lastly, I really liked Faith Like Potatoes which was a Christian movie.
I might also note that they have a whole Christian category of movies that you can search through. So, if you are looking for something to watch on a dreary afternoon, shoot for one of these on Netflix, and make sure you rate it, so Netflix can figure you out!
Though, being that our account is in Howard's name, they probably think Howard looks more like this:
