Now You Can Watch EVERY DAY from Groundhog Day…AT THE SAME TIME!!

Groundhog Day is an interesting and unique movies that somehow has the ability to balance the weight of its central premise — which is essentially time-travel via the constant repetition of a single day — while still showcasing excellent character development and laughs. To be honest, it definitely helps with Bill Murray’s performance as weatherman Phil Connors, and you gain an appreciation for how well the detailed replication of that same, single day — including the people in the background of each-and-every scene, and Connors’ response to the situation, ranging from confusion to frustration, to arrogance, to depression, to benevolence to more — but that’s often only noticed if you’ve repeatedly watched the film over-and-over again.  So today, The PractitioNERD wishes to give you this wonderful present on this Groundhog Day  in the year of our Lord twenty-seventeen, and now you can take in the film’s central premise with this YouTube video, titled “Groundhog Day – Every Day in One Day.” Also, go watch Groundhog Day.

Netflix made a Free Video Game Featuring Some of its Hit Shows…

Apparently Netflix can’t stand to limit themselves to only commissioning award-winning programming and movies; they just HAD to attempt to dip their fingers into creating an interactive media project, i.e., create a video game.  A dedicated group of Netflix employees used some of their time to building this fun little projects, like the “The Swtich” (NOT THIS ONE) — a button that can automatically dims the lights, turns on your phone’s Do Not Disturb feature for long episodes of binge-streaming — but this one’s all about gaming. The game is called Netflix Infinite Runner, which is exactly as it sounds, is an endless running game that features the most popular characters from four popular Netflix original shows: Narcos, Marco Polo, Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things.
