After a long day at work and play and nothing is left to mow, plant, plow, pitch, love, build, paint, sell, reap, brush, or drive, we are left to view.  But the airwaves are pretty devoid of interest.  Therefore, we take advantage of one of the few dot.bomb successes,  i.e., NetFlix.  The table that follows tracks our viewing history, giving you an idea of both our taste in the treats of Hollywood and differences in our perceptions.  Before too long, I figured out some sites that did reviews on movies.  Starting with #12, I started putting some links into these sites.  For those interested in an analysis, check out the Movie Stats Page.
