Today's Netflix Queue

Our four current titles, in-house and on the way:

The Crawling Eye (1958) D says this is one we will watch with K. I'll write more later about the '50s horror genre and what has worked and what hasn't... we did goof and start these a bit early with K, who suffered bad dreams after seeing Them (1954; black and white; giant ants and a bit of camp... we thought it would be fine!) when he was about eight. Yeah, naughty us.

The Kiss of Death (1947) Richard Widmark; film noir. Hmm. We're not sure if we'll try this one with K or not. Probably not. Or maybe we will.

Rooster Cogburn (1975) John Wayne; this is a sequel to True Grit, which K and watched last year. Finding appropriate, old-fashioned westerns for the kiddies is not that easy with all the whiskey-fueled mayhem and murder, and ladies of questionable repute outsmarting good guys and bad guys alike. But True Grit was great fun. K and I will watch it, while D watches Bloodbath in Dodge or something.

Cache (2005) French; Juliet Binoche. A thriller for mom and dad that's been on our list for a while.
