How Much Are You Really Using Your Netflix Subscription?

Netflix

As far as entertainment goes, $7.99 per month for a basic Netflix streaming subscription seems like a relative bargain. Still, you’re only getting your money’s worth if you’re actually using it. So how much are you using it, really?

According to a new study, probably quite a lot. A research group has determined that the average Netflix user watches 93.2 minutes, or 1.55 hours,  of content on the service per day. That’s a 350% increase over 2011, when Netflix was getting crap for their decision to raise prices.

Thomas and Martha Wayne

Batman‘s suits, vehicles, and love interests may differ from telling to telling, but one aspect that pretty much always remains constant is the horrific murder of his parents. It’s such an important part of the Batman mythos, in fact, that we’ve seen it in almost every TV or movie adaptation. And now you can watch all of those Thomas and Martha death scenes at once in a brutal new supercut.

Meanwhile, one thing that has changed drastically over the years is Batman’s theme song, from the “nana nana nana nana BATMAN” jingle of the 1960s series to the epic, sweeping Hans Zimmer score from the Dark Knight films. Two guys on cello and piano have now stitched them all together into a single seamless performance — complete with three generations of Batmobiles as set decoration.

Watch the Batman parent death supercut and the Batman score evolution performance after the jump. Read More »

Predestination trailer

When he’s not collaborating with Richard Linklater on beautifully understated indies about the passage of time, Ethan Hawke can often be found heading up thrillers. His recent genre successes include Sinister and The Purge, and now he’s reteaming with his Daybreakers directors Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig for Predestination.

The time-traveling pic is based on a 1959 short story by Robert Heinlein called “—All You Zombies—” but to our modern eyes it also seems to have shades of Looper and Source Code. Hawke plays a “temporal agent” who tries to stop crimes before they happen. Watch the new Predestination trailer after the jump.

inherent-vice-header-3

There’s been a lot of back and forth over whether David Fincher changed Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl ending, but maybe all this time we should have been fretting over a different auteur-driven literary adaptation. Paul Thomas Anderson has reportedly written an entirely new conclusion for Inherent Vice, based on Thomas Pynchon‘s novel.

Not that Pynchon seems all that upset about it. Indeed, the famously reclusive author even agreed to a cameo in the movie — though he’s so private it’s quite possible no one will even recognize him anyway. Hit the jump for tons more from Inherent Vice, including a new photo of Joaquin Phoenix and Benicio del Toro and details on how Police Squad! served as an inspiration for Anderson.

VOTD: Zack Snyder Loves Slow Motion

Zack Snyder Slow Motion Supercut

Love Zack Snyder or hate him, it’s hard to deny he’s got a distinctive visual style. (Indeed, detractors often argue that’s his problem — that he’s nothing but style.) And one of his very favorite go-tos from his bag of tricks is tweaking the pace of the action onscreen.

Dude loves himself some slow-mo, as demonstrated by this new supercut. He loves it so much, the video is even set to Emily Browning‘s slowed-down version of the Eurythmics“Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” from Snyder’s Sucker Punch. Watch the Zack Snyder slow motion supercut after the jump.

LOL: How ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Should Have Ended

How The Amazing Spider-man 2 Should Have Ended

Typically, the How It Should Have Ended videos do exactly as they say on the label. But the problems with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were apparently so numerous, the team had to rewrite not just the third act but practically the entire film.

Which, in the end, actually makes even less sense. If you keep Richard Parker from getting into that plane crash, or prevent Max Dillon from falling into that electric eel tank, then why would there still be a big power plant showdown at the climax?

No matter, though. It’s just fun watching the HISHE gang poke fun at the nonsensical movie logic that runs the entire film. And it’s even more fun watching them bring in some superpowered pals for Spidey. Watch How The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Should Have Ended after the jump.
