the difference between my Movie Cheat Sheet emails and my What to Stream posts

So what’s the difference, regarding streaming movies, between the films I highlight in my Movie Cheat Sheet email newsletters and the ones I list in my What to Stream posts?

Basically, it’s this: The Cheat Sheets list movies that are new to stream, regardless of whether I think they’re any good or not. The What to Stream posts highlight only the good stuff — you will never see a red light in a What to Stream post, and you’ll see a yellow light only if there isn’t enough green-light stuff to recommend. What to Stream posts will also sometimes recommend great streaming films that have been available for a while but that you (or I) may have overlooked, or that I may gather together under a thematic umbrella.

Questions? Ask away. Suggestions for how I could make these posts or emails more useful to you? I’m all ears.

    I can even see a way of generating all these off a single database, but it would need some moderately hairy coding to sort out potential confusion of titles (if only everyone used IMDb ID numbers).

  • I’m certain there are better ways this site could be organized, but it would take some serious custom coding, and would probably demand a different CMS than WordPress (maybe Drupal).
