Watching Easy Rider for maybe the 15th Time; thought I'd share this for comment.

The worm seems to have turned.

It was a lot deeper movie than most understood.

Sitting here watching it on Netflix.

It’s so mice to not have to get up and dig through the cabinets for my DVDs.

The problem is that 9/10 of the movies available to stream on Netflix suck. If I get the urge to watch some older movie, it always tells me that I need to subscribe to their DVD option. Netflix is good mostly for TV series, where you can watch a year's worth of episodes continuously.

I happen to like old horror stuff like Vincent Price and Christopher Lee.

If not for Netflix, I would never have been able to ‘catch up’ with Breaking Bad before the final season started.

They have lots of documentaries, which I really like.

I’m currently enjoying old Columbo and Kolchak episodes.

For $7, I find enough stuff.

:)

The other night I was watching episodes one after another and a little pop-up appeared, asking me if I was “still watching”.

I guess it thought I had fallen asleep.

"I’m currently enjoying old Columbo and Kolchak episodes."

The Night Stalker was a very underrated TV series. Great shows, Kolchak was the man!

You jest but I have *3* DirecTV remotes here by the sofa and I can *never* find even one of them.

They just vanish, to be found later under the sofa or behind it.

I have no idea how they manage to wander around so much.

One of most gut-punching yet deceptively low key comments, ever.

Prescient in regards to the next few minutes but reflective of everything that went before.

Three little words.

Swamp.

Yeah.

They make my clothes.

The little rabbits and birds who help me in the kitchen are real workers, though.

I must be unusually dense. Didn’t understand the adulation given this movie back in the day and still don’t.

What is supposed to be profound about this speech? It’s typical leftist drivel about how the market and responsibilities enslave a person, and to be really free one lives as a parasite on society, producing nothing.

Ignoring the fact that such a lifestyle is only possible because the George Baileys of the world produce enough “stuff” that society can afford parasites.

If someone can explain why this scene is supposed to portray deep thoughts, I’d be glad to try to understand.

Pay particular attention to the “freedom” part of it and think of the “threat” conservatives pose to liberals.

That’s a bit of a Cliff Notes but it’s a start.

I wish Netflix had more of the Criterion titles. They seemed to have stopped stocking the “newer” (Hula dispute?).

I have the boxed set (BBS Story?) that has this (with 2 commentary tracks, I think one may be Dennis Hopper’s laserdisc commentary which was not used for the mass market DVD, a new and “less informative” track was recorded).

I haven’t sat down to rewatch it (or dig through the bonus materials).
