Similar to one’s ‘Most Played Songs’, a Netflix queue is a direct reflection of its owner. It can say more about your personality than you might think!
Now, my Netflix queue is very sacred to me, it’s weird, random, and you’d think it belonged to a middle-aged cat lady; just the way I like it. 😉 I am constantly updating and adding titles as I discover them. It’s a mix of forever favorites, classics that are a sin not to know, and recommendations I have yet to watch. Rather than explaining why certain titles are mixed together, just watch them yourself. You’ll enjoy some bomb cinema while learning first hand about yours truly.
Below are pictures and short descriptions of the movies and TV shows that make up ‘My List’.
DISCLAIMER: ALL DESCRIPTIONS ARE PROVIDED BY NETFLIX AND ALL CREDIT GOES TO THEM. THEY ARE IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER AND ARE ALL AMAZING IN THEIR OWN WAYS. THINGS IN PARENTHESES ARE MY OWN OPINION.
