Fun With Netflix Viewer Reviews: Volume Twenty

It’s time yet again for the article that’s easy for me and fun for you- Fun with Netflix Viewer Reviews! Here’s volume twenty of people writing really funny Netflix viewer reviews. These are presented completely unedited. Even when you think I might have edited something in or out of the copy, I assure you that I have not.



Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)
Spoiler alert…Abraham Lincoln doesn’t achieve immortality by being via vampire bite but rather succumbs to a gunshot wound during a play at the Ford Theater…which is exactly what should be the fate of the producers and director of this movie..

A Woman is a Woman (1961)

White Chicks (2004)
did they add scenes?????????????????????????????????? but anyway, i just love this movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i watched it it a lot in my childhood. i think its AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE

Babe: Pig in the City (1998)
Unlike it’s predecessor, “Babe”, “Babe: Pig in the City” coins a new genre. ‘Noir films for children’. I suppose if you want surreal gritty urban realism that harkens back to Dickens, then go for it. I am not for sanitizing children’s fare, creating saccharine-only cinematic experiences, or talking down to children content-wise, but there are images here, particularly the sequences of cruelty to animals, that are gratuitously disturbing, simply superfluous and unnecessary in their graphic power to upset and dismay.
Editor’s Note: There’s nothing inherently funny in this review but now I totally want to see Babe: Pig in the City.

I love Chris Farley as much as anyone but even I think that reviewer is crazy.

Beverly Hills Ninja (1997)
This has got to be the best movie i have seen in a long time. I’m a huge fan Kung-fu comedies,but an even bigger fan of Chris Farley.This move has a couple of good action bits but overall its 90% pure raw slapstick comedy the other 10%? CHRIS FARLEY COMEDY MAGIC WARNING: DO NOT LISTEN TO CRITICS THEY GAVE THIS STARS (probably shouldnt have mentioned that) ———- WATCH THIS MOVIE ————

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
I loved it. It was much better than “Cats”. I would watch it again, and again.
Editor’s Note: If you get this review/SNL reference, I’d like to high-five you.

The Nutty Professor (1963)
One of the worst films I’ve ever seen. More of a horror film than a comedy ie. the film was horrible and not at all funny. Not 1 ha. I rate it -20

Iron Eagle II (1988)
I hate this movie but I am a plane love so it is col for me! If only it could chage the f-16c into some other plane, that will be awesome!

John Wayne’s Tribute to America (1970)
As corn-ball as hell as it seems. This TV Special shows how history was told in bicentennial or pre bicentennial times it was made in. Including inclusiveness that would not fit in our Post-Racial years we live now. For John Wayne to give Tommy Smothers a voice after CBS unceremoniously trashed him is priceless. The vintage Budweiser ads are included as an extra. True to be a Tea Party delight. I give it a enjoyed and watched thoroughly.
Editor’s Note: In other words, GET OFF MY LAWN!!!


Amazingly, there WAS an iguana in Night of the Iguana. But there was also lots more booze and beautiful women and lost faith and Mexico.

The Night of the Iguana (1964)
I watched almost this whole movie waiting for the iguana to make an entrance. Never did show up. If it was really the night of the iguana he had better things to do.

The Third Man (1949)
I first viewed this film in 1949, the year it came out and we all thought it broke new ground even then.Now,63 years later the film still has all the same charm.Truly a ground breaker,it has all the movement and directorial technique of the 21th century. A masterpiece,if there ever was one.
Editor’s Note: Absolutely nothing funny here in this review, although it may be the coolest movie review on Netflix. That is the ultimate in Re-Watchterpiece Theater. And, of course, he/she is right about the film.

Alive (1993)
How do you like your human? Rare, medium or well done? Unfortunately, the poor main characters in this flick did not even have a choice. I think we have all, at one time or another, had a friend for dinner but this film tells the tale of a rugby team that prepared a most unique dish. Overall, I think the creators of this film blended graphic realism with drama very well. The acting was poor in some scenes but it kinda made me crave a rump roast served cold and very, very, VERY rare!

  1. The Iguana did have better things to do.

  2. Okay, I don’t think any movie would turn me into a cannibal! I remember how Beverly Hills Ninja was a Don’t Watch It Mike! One of the most painful films I’ve ever seen and I include Salo in this.

  3. I love the satirical one on Alive. It . . . was satire, right? Judging from some of these other reviews like the Tea Party one and the one who severely abused punctuation and the caps lock key, I wonder just a little bit.

    I kind of remember something about Cats on SNL but what was the reference with Wrath of Kahn again?


  5. Aw, That Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter one is mean. Although, the one on Babe: Pig in the City is a lot more interesting than the movie itself.

  6. I give credit to that review for Babe: Pig in the City. That has to be the first time that film has been noted for its “surreal gritty urban realism.” That’s far out.

    • There were a lot of other reviews for that one blasting it for animal cruelty or something and it being too advanced for younger kids.

  7. Wow, a review from a plane itself. That’s a new one. I also really liked the Beverly Hills Ninja review. Don’t listen to critics that gave it stars! Only choose ones that use a different ratings system!

  8. Wow the Alive review made me fell very concerned about any one in that house at the time. And is the person whom claims to be watching babe pig in city watching the same naf film I watched yes not good children’s film but come on.

  9. I truly enjoy reading the “reviews” that state, “I watched this movie because the reviews said it was good.” and then they hate it and accent their disgust by displaying their inability to spell.

    • I don’t usually (maybe ever?) include them but a lot of the time, you find reviews that very specifically refer to one other viewer’s review. They name the other reviewer by name… except now Netflix doesn’t include usernames. So the reviews just look like the ramblings of a crazy person.

  10. Babe: Pig In the City is truly a strange, Dickensian/Steam Punk kids movie that takes on big banking, urban blight and poverty. I haven’t seen it since I was 13 but it was great.

  11. I don’t see why people rag on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter so much. Wasn’t meant to be great high art or whatever you want to call it. It was just a fun time, really. I enjoyed it.

    I have to admit, that description of Babe: Pig in the City really does have me curious to watch it lol

  12. Terrific shot, brightened up my day

  13. Wow, amazing, you’ve been reading my thoughts. Love it

  14. Even the sculpture is joining in!

  15. Wonderful poetry, once again I feel humbled and blessed in your presence.

  16. Short but powerful, thank you so much for sharing those sentiments, hope you have a wonderful weekend x

  17. Arrive without travelling, see all without looking. If you don’t have a dream you’ll never have a dream come true

  18. Potent, moving, wonderful, imagery so vivid it can be sensed, tasted, enjoyed, have a fantastic weekend x
