I Win

It is no secret that Netflix’s streaming movies selection is less than stellar.  Last night, having made my way through all of the “Top Picks for Meagan”, “Dark Biographical Documentaries”, “Quirky Movies”, and “Reality TV” custom lists pre-selected based on my previous choices, I begrudgingly clicked on the new “Teen Movies” category that popped up.

Oh. My. God.  Gold mine.

First up:

I had completely forgotten about Center Stage.  Edgy hip hop numbers to Mandy Moore singles.  Bad-boy ballarinos that battle for the girl’s heart in twirl-offs.  RED POINTER SHOES.

Whatever you feel, just DANCE it.

Argentine Film Festival-Day 1

We’ve committed ourselves to watching at least one Argentine movie a week (along with a few Gael Garcia Bernal films, because he is hot) on nights we don’t go out.

(I realize now that Brigada Explosiva: Mision Pirata was also an Argentine movie, so this technically should be our second film.  But we’re just going to pretend that Brigada Explosiva never happened.)

First (real) film: El Secreto de Sus Ojos (The Secret of Their Eyes)

This movie, based off a book (La Pregunta de Sus Ojos), and directed by Juan Jose Campanella, won the Oscar for best foreign film in 2010.  It is awesome.  It’s a drama, mystery, thriller, love story…really fantastic.  Go rent it.
