Netflix xbox 360 update!

As some of you may know by now, I am having a love affair with NetFlix in general but I am smitten with it on the 360 in particular. So I am very pleased with the news about the next 360 update.

On Aug 11th, the update allows you to videos to your instant view queue from your 360. No more running to a PC to update your queue! As if that wasn’t enough, you can now watch your movies and shows with others over Xbox Live! marry me NetFlix!

Also with the update is the new Avatar marketplace functionality. There should be plenty of variety available to customize your mii…I mean, Xbox Live avatars.

The new game on demand feature will go live as well. There will be 30+ titles at launch and will include some heavy hitters like Mass Effect and BioShock.

Nathan Fillion For green Lantern!

I saw this video a while ago and have been in a nerd coma since seeing it. Everyone should see this fan made trailer for the Green Lantern. If you are a fan of awesome, you will enjoy its geniusness.

As you may have guessed, it stars Nathan Fillion in outstandingly brilliant casting as GL. The video quality is quite impressive and is the result of lots of hard work by Jaron Pitts of Texas.

Captain tight pants back in space!

Manos: The Hands of Fate

I mentioned it in the AMC B-Movie posting but this really is something that needs it’s own mention.

Manos: The Hands of Fate is probably one of the most terrifying movies that I’ve watched, the dubbing, the cuts and the general story is just mind blowing and because of that I’m now posting it for anyone that feels up to it. This isn’t the MST3K version that most watch, there’s no comic relief, just a thought in your mind of “Make it stop already!!!”

Cheers everyone 😀

B-Movie Bonanza!

Streaming movies isn’t that new these days, but it’s often hard to find the latest hot spots worth checking out. Usually when I want a great B-Movie I often hit up Google Videos, a lot of titles manage to find their way over there and some are just awful. Today though I hit up AMC for my usual dose of TV catchup and found a series of B-Movies listed

AMC / BMC Movies

The current lineup so far is this

Dragstrip Girls
The Hellfire Club
Hercules Unchained
Motorcycle Gang
Saga of the Viking Women
Dark Star
Shake, Rattle & Rock
A Swingin’ Summer
Assassination in Rome
Carnival of Souls
College Girl Murders
Reform School Girl
Rock All Night
Asylum
Corridors of Blood
The Horror of Party Beach
How to Make a Monster
War of the Colossal Beast
What a Carve Up
Creation of the Humanoids
Invasion of the Neptune Men
Planet on the Prowl
Teenage Caveman
Terror Beneath the Sea
Dynamite Joe
The Ruthless Four

Here’s to hoping they get some true winners like Manos: Hands of Fate in there, although honestly I think I couldn’t take that movie all the way through once again.

Also many apologies if these are beyond your regular B-Movie radar, some of these really kind of look like they’re gonna be grade A stink.
