JC, Netflix!

Having reached the “end” of Netflix (a la “watching everything interesting that is currently available to stream”), an app was recently brought to my attention that has unlocked countless more movies and shows: hola!  It was a (very) easily downloadable extension for my Chrome browser, and within minutes we were experiencing an entire new world of movies and shows that are available in other countries.  Read a bit more about it on the Business Insider site by clicking this link…  or run and download it right now, no real instructions necessary.

Hola App

That being said, we recently watched Disney’s John Carter, and found it a good source of entertainment for the over-two-hour mark.  It is an interesting mix of the movies Gladiator, Stargate, Avatar, I daresay Mission to Mars (though neither of us have seen it, just ‘Mars’ being in the name of it), and one more that we can’t quite put a finger on.

Once Upon a Time…

… I stepped in, to wonderland.

Once Upon a Time

Appealing to the Dreamer that lives within us, this show has every fantasy and fable element and character incorporated into it (one of the qualities I found intriguing – to see how they could possibly interlace all of those stories, set in different times and places), from Snow White to Frankenstein to Alice in Wonderland.

This screenshot came from the moment the evil stepmother from Snow White and The Mad Hatter were stepping in to Wonderland to retrieve something (yes, together):

“Everyone wants a magical solution for their problems, and everyone refuses to believe in magic.”
