They seem to have fucked around with Netflix on the PS4. Using unlocator.com, everytime I want to change region I have to sign out of Netflix, turn off the PS4, turn it back on and sign back in to Netflix. Previously I just had to change the region, turn it off and then back on.

Fecking annoying.

I watched The Kings of Summer on Canadian Netflix at the weekend and thought it was great. It's about three lads who are fed up with their parents so they just go and build a house in the middle of the woods. Also it's got Ron Swanson in it.

I can recommend this as well. It's a good mix of comedy and drama, some very funny parts but also a difficult father/son relationship that I could relate to. Swanson is great, making you think 'what a dick' in his interactions with his son then laughing the next minute when he says something caustic to a stranger.

Watched Don Jon last night also. It's not new on Netflix but was a good flick, once again funny but with some genuine points to make. Concerns a guy who is great with women but finds the sex terrible due to his online porn addiction. Makes a great comparison between romantic comedies skewing women's expectations just as much as porn does for men.

The main problem with the doc is the sheer amount of stuff that they don't have access to show, and can only reference in passing. A doc with actual access to footage libraries, and more scenes of group adlibbing would have been great.

It's a bit repetitive with the constant appeals for recognition of their legitimacy too, but it's still the best doc of its kind out there. As far as I know.

Watched 13 Sins last night. The premise revolves around a passive guy whose life is going south, his debts are piling up and all seems lost when he gets a phonecall. There's a fly bothering him in his car, if he swats the fly he'll get $1000. He does it. The money comes in. That's challenge one of thirteen, if he makes it all the way he'll be a millionaire.

Suffice to say the challenges get more extreme and he becomes trapped, with no way out but forward. It's a great idea but I felt that the film only flirted with the true nastiness of the idea, and the twists were fairly obvious. That said, it's never less than diverting and the acting is fairly solid, with Ron Pearlman as a Detective following in this guy's wake and trying to figure out what's motivating him.

House of the Devil is pretty good. It seems to get compared to the likes of Innkeepers, but I found it way better than that with greatly superior scene-setting and a far meatier payoff after all the waiting. Some nice classic horror cinematography too and proper 80s horror style dodgy acting, which just added to it for me. A tad boring in places but still a solid 7/10 on the Windometer.

I really liked House of the Devil. Thought it succeeded totally in what it set out to do.
