Netflix: 90's Batman Takeover




I've been a Netflix subscriber for a few years now. I didn't initially jump on the digital streaming movie/tv show bandwagon but I finally decided to join. This was back when you were still able to get both dvd rentals and streaming combined for one price. Also, at that time the service had categories to where if you paid more you could get more dvd rentals at one time. I chose the basic package which got me one dvd at a time and unlimited streaming. This was the very first monthly subscription I had ever signed up for and glad I did. The current movies listed for streaming is leaps and bounds better than they used to be. 

Speaking of better movies I've noticed the emergence of Batman movies popping up on Netflix. Not only Batman movies but the movies I grew up with. 90's Batman dominated my search with Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997) then two animated movies with Batman Beyond (1999) and Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2008). 


I had also noticed at the time of this post my favorite Batman movie had been removed. Batman with Michael Keaton released in 1989. This brings me to one of Netflix' downfalls, the movies never last at least not all the good ones. I've heard Netflix is where movies go to die which isn't a bad thing. I've made sure to add Netflix to every portable device we have in our home and regularly flip on the AppleTV to tune in to a movie or show I have already added to my list.

If you're looking for a streaming service I would highly suggest checking out Netflix. For only $7.99 a month it's a cheap way to either eleviate your cable bill, catch up on recently released and older movies or just have the conveinence of VOD (video on demand).
