Brace yourselves; this is a bad one. It’s bad enough that we lost Starz this month, which killed off some of my very favorite movies. The clearly error-filled Netflix RSS feed tricked me into thinking that several really high-quality titles had been added to compensate. As it turns out, we don’t have much to show for our loss.

When the end of the month rolls around, Netflix takes the Leonidas approach: “Give them nothing, but take from them everything!” Nothing is what we get this week. Well, that’s not entirely true. We get mainly crap and one documentary I’ve been dying to see.
The beginning of November is apparently Pixar week on Blu-ray. The month starts off with the studio’s latest blockbuster new release, plus reissues of some of its classics.
Disney currently appears to be throwing up a last-minute Hail Mary to entice audiences this weekend to attend ‘Cars 2′ in 3D. After watching the percentages of folks attending 3D screenings diminish in favor of 2D over the last two months (especially with Disney’s own ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’), it’s no wonder why the studio would push ‘Cars 2′ in 3D especially hard.
This week’s Roundtable spun out of last week’s topic. Specifically, it was prompted by a comment from reader Brian H, who suggested that we should put together our own list of 100 films that didn’t make the AFI Top 100 Movies list. I don’t know that we have the wherewithal to do a hundred titles all on our own, but perhaps we can get the ball rolling. We’ll give you our picks for movies that the AFI inexplicably ignored, and you can fill in the rest. Let’s see how far we get.
It’s a good week for Netflix subscribers who also happen to be anime fans. Netflix signed a deal with Viz to get ‘Naruto’, ‘Bleach’ and a few others up for streaming. Even better, they’re subtitled. Not into anime? Then maybe you’ll be interested in ‘The Other Guys’ or ‘Toy Story 3′.
A post that Aaron wrote last week about Pixar’s upcoming animated feature ‘Brave’ sparked an interesting discussion about whether the studio has ever really produced a dud. This seems like a great opportunity to rank all of Pixar’s films to see which ones our readers like the best and which you dislike the most.
March may be over, but Movie Madness is still going strong. For some reason, I thought the matchups on Wednesday would be closer. However, Tony Stark easily defeated Dr. Horrible. (I think we can all agree that if it came down to a singing contest, it would’ve been no contest at all.) In the other duel, Wolverine easily skewered the young Nazi Amon Goeth and moved on to the next round. Today, we’ll take a look at Christian Bale’s Batman versus Buzz Lightyear, and Ellen Ripley versus Jason Bourne.
I’ve decided that in order to differentiate the various brackets in the March Movie Madness tournament, we’re going to have to give them names. The NCAA gives each bracket a directional name (East, West, South, and North). Since that just wouldn’t make sense here, I’ve come up with something more appropriate.
