Hey, you! 😭😭
There are many movie flops out there, but 365 Days and its sequel is probably the biggest one of all time. I would seriously do anything to be able to get back the minutes I wasted on those 2 movies.
A few years ago, one of my favorite series ever Sense8 suddenly got cancelled by Netflix after only 2 seasons. Initially there was no ending. I remember signing petitions, joining forums, and sharing my disappointment online. Eventually we were able to have ONE extra episode to give a proper ending to this masterpiece.
And then I see this 365 Days crap and I think to myself, "Seriously?! What the hell is Netflix thinking??"
I recently read an article online saying that Netflix was losing subscribers and honestly they should probably ask themselves the right questions. I was one of the first subscribers in France. When I first heard about Netflix France, I immediately went for it and encouraged my friends and acquaintances to subscribe. But nowadays with competitors like Prime Video and Disney+, the Husband and I are seriously thinking about cancelling our Netflix subscription. Quality is important to us.
I know that sex sells, but at what point? If I wanted to watch soft porn, I would go anywhere but Netflix. Is Netflix thinking of attracting new subscribers this way? Are they riding the Fifty Shades of Grey wave?
Fifty Shades, in my opinion wasn't that good, but it had a storyline. It felt like false advertising because it wants people to consider it as an erotic and bdsm movie, but in reality it isn't that at all. For me, at the end of the day, it's a love story / romance movie. But it does have a storyline. 365 Days is zero - it's nothing but an empty shell.
365 Days is basically two people, having sex, having graphic sex, and having more sex. I wish there was something more to add to the description, but they would be lies.
So I ask again - what the hell was Netflix thinking?
