But I LIKE Doctormentrys

Netflix, Netflix, how I love thee. Not only do you recommend movies you think I'll enjoy, and not only are these recs pretty accurate, but you provide me with the wildy-varied and entertaining opinions of hundreds of fellow Netflix subscribers.

Today, you recommended The Passion of Joan of Arc. I clicked through to learn more about it, maybe add it to my queue.

You let me know right up front that this movie is dated 1928. "Filmed in black and white, silent with English intertitles," you further tell me, because you are helpful and informative, Netflix my friend.

My favorite user reviews? Two stars: "The film attempts to create an intellectual thriller without sound." (And without color! Couldn't they just have waited ten years?)

Three stars: "The movie was so-so it would have been better if it was a talkey not a doctormentry."

And the ever-popular, daring and iconoclastic one-star review: "You people are hard up for entertainment. You are the same folks that could play with a ball of string for hours. This movie stunk!" (Well, now I know why I should rent The Da Vinci Code instead.)

Don't ever stop being Netflix, Netflix.

So, it was Joane of Arc meets Dr. Kildaire? *snorfle* Good lord, what a bunch of....

The movie is fascinating, and very modern looking. I think you'll enjoy it. Sadly, there are no attractive sex-starved doctors in it.

For that, I can watch Firefly.

Thanks for the rec! I'm putting this in my queue.
