If you've never tried Netflix before but always wondered what all the fuss was about, now's the perfect time to find out. For a limited time, Netflix is offering a one-month free trial of its streaming service. Usually it's just 14 days.

The only downside to the many wondrous places in the world is that one person can never possibly visit them all. Some of the most fascinating regions on earth are too geographically remote for a realistic vacation. Other places are too high-priced to afford airfare, hotel stays, and/or local dining and sightseeing. It is for places like these that Blockbuster and Netflix provide a quick cure: The DVD that takes viewers away to new places.
The following movies are excellent picks that take viewers away for under ten dollars in less than two hours:

This Sunday in Los Angeles is an event that is Christmas, New Years and senior Prom all combined. I am talking of course about the 82nd annual Academy Awards, otherwise known as "Oscar night." Twenty-four awards (not including almost half a dozen "special" awards...) will be parceled out over a mind (and buttocks) numbing three to four hour time period. Or even longer if you tune into the pre-Oscar Red Carpet coverage...
Given that the Oscars are the finale to a long drawn-out awards season that starts with the Golden Globes and includes the Director's Guild awards, Writer's Guild awards and Screen Actor Guild awards, much of the anticipation and mystery surrounding "Who will win?" has been eliminated. Unless of course, you're dying to know who's gonna win for "Best Sound Mixing."
If you're planning a get-together to watch the annual marathon, Walletpop had a great post on how to host a cheap Oscar party. I personally plan on skipping the televised festivities--opting to utilize those four hours in a much more entertaining fashion...
Budget conscious couples all over will most likely be avoiding the expense of overpriced flowers, bling-y jewelry and gourmet chocolate in favor of a low-key, yet romantic night in. After enjoying a delicious Beef and Mushrooms dinner--or a simple but tasty gourmet pesto pizza--followed by chocolate dipped strawberries, no doubt more than a few of you will cuddle up together to watch a romantic movie.
