4 Things I love about Netflix

I’ve recently subscribed again to Netflix (I used to have it while I was in Canada but then I cancelled it) and I’m just loving it. It’s just addictive. It works perfectly on all my devices and even my parents are loving it, a thing that I didn’t exactly expect. 

Here’s what I love about it:

  1. It’s stuffed with content.  Netflix is just full with amazing films and tv-series, everyone can find something that matches his own taste.
  2. It’s multi-platform.   I use Netflix on my phone, my iPad and my Xbox360 and it just works great. It syncs the episodes automatically so I never watch a thing twice and it’s so handy and accesible. Dumb-proof.
  3. Netflix Originals. One amazing thing (that not many broadcasters do, and surely not as much and as well as Netflix) are the original series and films that they produce. It makes the whole experience a lot more exclusive because you can watch content you couldn’t find in any other way. Smart.
  4. It’s cheap.  I can’t believe how cheap Netflix actually is, unbelievable. It’s way cheaper than any other film/video entertainment provider such as Sky or cable tv or any other thing. You gotta have a good bandwidth tho, but that’s not a big de after all.

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

-W.E Henley

This is one of my favourite poems, if not my favourite. I met this for the first time when I first watched Invictus by Clint Eastwood. That movie hit me. It hit me deeply, I remember that I was astonished by the great soul-strenght of Nelson Mandela and by the overall atmosphere.
