I was working on my Netflix queue yesterday and as part of this watched The Harder They Fall. It’s a pretty new western with all the named characters being black. (And yes, like the movie informs us in the beginning, there were plenty of black people in the so-called Wild West.)
Let’s talk about movie ratings.
Openly gay, atheist and communist in a society that found each of these unacceptable. No wonder I find Pier Paolo Pasolini one of my favorite directors. The thing is, his movies are not my favorites. They are fine and interesting, but not something I’ll go back and watch again and again.
Do they need judging? Well, here you have it anyhow.
The ones I always overpick.
There’s a lot. I definitely could have chosen very differently and I’m not going to justify these choices. With so many channels and so much content on each of them available, I can’t possibly go through them all or even a meaningful number of them. Still, these are the ones I’ve somehow found.
TL;DR: It’s just horrible.
A very, very subjective list.
