You boot up Netflix with the intention to find something new, something exciting, something you’ve never seen before. But, honestly, sometimes all that hunting and finding just isn’t as satisfying as grabbing an old, cult classic you’ve seen 24.6 times and settling in for a long evening of lip-synching along to the dialogue. Really, the oldest and most-time tested pleasures are often the best.
