Background

Lots of people do reviews. But movie tickets can be expensive in this day and age. For the price of a single admission to the cinema, you can enjoy movies in the comfort of your home, as often as you can watch them and stick the disc back in the envelope. So I asked myself, “why isn’t anybody reviewing stuff available on Netflix?” And so a new feature was born – IT CAME FROM NETFLIX!

I began recording audio for my reviews a few months ago and it’s enhanced the overall result, if the feedback from readers & listeners is to be believed. The feature has grown to the point that it’s high time for me to compile what’s gone before, what is to come and how you can contribute to help keep this aspect of the site alive. Thanks for reading, listening and generally being awesome. I do this for you guys, not just because it’s fun. …Okay, it is fun, but if I was just having fun by myself I doubt I’d record it. Though I’m sure there’s an industry for that, too…

Upcoming IT CAME FROM NETFLIX! Features

Every Friday after posting the latest feature I will add a new poll, naming some of the things lurking in my Netflix queues. You can chose one of the films for me to review, and whichever gets the most votes will be what I’ll watch and review. In the case of a tie I’ll use a highly scientific method to choose the next victim subject, such as rolling a die, flipping a coin or asking my wife.

Gee willikers, Mr. Alchemist, I don’t see [insert movie name here] on your list. I sure wish you’d review it. How can I get you to do that?

I’m glad you asked.

Supporting IT CAME FROM NETFLIX!

(and Blue Ink Alchemy too)

I’m opening myself up to suggestions and ideas of movies or tv series to watch and review. If you’d like to submit such a suggestion, you should see a shiny PayPal button above the aforementioned Lifestream. Click it, send in an appropriate donation and I’ll add your suggestion to my queue.

Any donation you wish to make is deeply appreciated. However, it’s an unfortunate truth that nobody can work for free. If you have the resources to make a donation of $25 or more and would like me to review a particular film, let me know when you donate what film you have in mind. I’ll review it for better or for worse (no gurantees I won’t rip your beloved movie to shreds) and give you a special thank you in both text and the recording, unless you’d rather I didn’t. I’d be willing to do overviews of TV series as well, but considering the length of most American series, I’ll have to ask for a donation of $50 or more to review a season of a TV series.

Oh, and it should go without saying that the requested work needs to be available on Netflix either through the mail or the instant queue. We’re working with a theme here, after all. And if you’d like me to go back and record audio for a previous post that doesn’t have it yet, let me know.

And now some obligatory legal stuff:

This is only a donation, not a work-for-hire agreement or a contractual one. My reviews posted here and elsewhere are created for free with the intention of education and/or parody. The terms for donations are not terms of sale, and exist for the sole purpose of expressing gratitude for any generosity shown to the degree stated. Any queries for the actual purchase of my services as an author or reviewer can be directed here.

  1. This is a cool idea. NetFlix is my primary form of entertainment ( well, after music and books) – I cut off cable TV over a year ago and haven’t missed it at all. Love catching up with series’ that I missed the first time around.
