Netflix Ranking

I'm going up in the world. The Netflix world at least, but hey it's something.

My ranking has jumped from 185 to...wait for it...

138

Is it a big deal? No. But I'm on my way up, even though I cheated (I made a 10 movies I wanted to see this summer list). I usually like to only add movies I've watched as to give an accurate rank of how the movies I've watched have affected people.

My 10 Movies I want to see this summer:
10. Inglorious Bastards
9. The Year One
8. Land of the Lost
7. Night at the Museum 2
6. Dragon Ball Evolution
5. G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra
4. Star Trek
3. Terminator Salvation
2. Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen
1. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

My Top 25 Simpsons Characters

The Simpsons could arguably be the great show ever. It’s been on forever, and they’ve covered everything. What really makes it though is the characters. But even though there are so many good ones, picking out 25 that stood out to me was pretty easy. Now ranking the last 15 was pretty brutal, but rest assured they all deserve to be here.

25. Kent Brockman: And the fluffy kitten played with that ball of string all through the night. On a lighter note, a Kwik-E-Mart clerk was brutally murdered last night.


24. Mayor Quimby: I stand by my racial slur.


23. Rainier: My eyes! The goggles do nothing!


22. Barney: Aaah! Natural light! Get it off me! Get it off me!


21. Milhouse: Remember the time he ate my goldfish? And you lied and said I never had goldfish. Then why did I have the bowl, Bart? *Why did I have the bowl?*


20. Dr. Nick: Inflammable means flammable? What a country.


19. Principal Skinner: That's two independent thought alarms in one day. Willie, the children are over-stimulated. …

My Top 40 Atari Games

I don’t include games like Video Chess/Checkers or Pong because they are classics but nothing special for Atari. Also, Donkey Kong never made my list because I never liked it, but lots of people consider this the best game.

40. Defender
Side scrolling shooter was pretty easy and had a few problems. The ship would disappear when you fired and you could hide on the side of the screen.


39. Taz
You spun into a tornado and collected food. Sounds like my life now without the tornado part.


38. Superman
Very difficult game that I never got very far on. It was a giant map and you couldn’t ever figure out what to do. It was super fun changing into Superman though.


37. Golf
Standard golf game which was surprisingly fun.


36. Star Master
Probably the first first-person shooting space game. Lots O Blasting.


35. Carnival
You shoot upwards at this giant spinning block while monkeys would dive down to get you.


34. Gravitar
Probably the hardest Atari game. You had like 3 lives, no continues, limited fuel and a…
