Strictly speaking, this doesn't fall under the purview of a blog about film criticism. But some stories are too big to ignore on a qualification. And the news that you can add every single Nicolas Cage film to your Netflix queue at the touch of a button is such a story.
This is a major breakthrough in the world of film technology. Think of the hours you spend every week -- every day! -- scouring Netflix for Nicolas Cage movies. I get frustrated emails from readers all the time, complaining about how hard and how time-consuming it is to find Nic Cage movies on Netflix. "I know you're not affiliated with Netflix in any way, and you just write this blog, but isn't there anything you can do about this?" they ask. Finally, I can.
The site in question -- the greatest site in all of moviewebdom, as far as I'm concerned -- is called Cage My Queue. There you are one click away from instantly adding every single Nic Cage movie on DVD to your Netflix queue. No more sleepless nights frantically searching for "Con Air," no more murdering a vagrant to steal his VHS copy of "Honeymoon in Vegas." Every Nicolas Cage movie (commercially available on DVD -- no instant watching, either) available right at your fingertips. It's almost too good to imagine.
I don't know how we lived before Cage My Queue. It's like trying to remember a time before cell phones. Somehow we got through it, and now we're in this glorious future where I don't have to spend three to four minutes locating "Bangkok Dangerous" on Netflix and then clicking the "Add" button. Someday we'll tell our grandchildren where we were when he heard the news.
Fair warning: if someone creates a Statham My Queue site, I will weep so hard my tears of joy might wash away the entire Internet.
You have waited long enough: Cage Your Queue.
