Oh no. He just spoke extra properly, not using can't, won't, shouldn't, etc. 8-)

I'd give Extraordinary Tales a C- or so. The narration is fine, the animation is hit or miss, and the segment between stories was bad.

If you're a fan of Poe, check it out but keep your expectations in check.

So Highwayman is worth a recommendation? I've been burned on some Netflix originals of late and hoping to find a good movie from them...

The Onion Movie
(2008)

We watch the Onion News, America's Finest News Source, with Dana Dobbs, Senior Correspondent Kip Kendall, and award-winning anchor Norm Archer. In addition to watching the news, we see the program's commercials, some commentary on the film as it proceeds, and we watch some terrorists in training. Behind the scenes, Onion News's corporate owner, Global Tetrahedron, seeks synergy by promoting its other products within Norm's news broadcast. Norm doesn't like it, especially when a toy penguin (think Energizer Bunny) waddles across his desk promoting a Global Tetrahedron film starring Steven Seagal. But Norm may end up needing Steven's help.

I watched this one years ago, but my main memory is that the actors were good (specifically Basinger and Haas), but that the writing was kind of iffy. I also thought that the final scene between Basinger and Haas didn't feel quite right.

The Groove Tube
(1974)

Channel One was a New York-based comedy group which presented short satirical sketches concerning television. What set this group apart was that they performed in front of genuine TV cameras. Many of the best, and most censurable, Channel One sketches are included in this feature-length film.

Deja Vu
(2006)

In the wake of a devastating terrorist attack on a slow New Orleans ferry, the A.T.F. special agent, Doug Carlin, joins an experimental top-secret government program to find the bomber. Designed to bend the very fabric of time, this state-of-the-art technology enables the user to observe a detailed representation of what happened four days and six hours in the past, tracking the target's every move prior to the attack. However, the man responsible for the deadly explosion is bound to strike again. Can Carlin figure out who he is, when he is always precisely four days behind?

Near the end of the car chase, Doug originally said "Jesus" after first seeing Oerstadt's face. This caused the audience at the first preview screening to erupt into laughter, as Jim Caviezel, who played Oerstadt, is famous for playing Jesus in The Passion of the Christ (2004). This unintentional reference had gone overlooked by director Tony Scott; he had the line removed from the film before its release. - Trivia :x Boooooo

Bad Girls From Valley High
(2005)

Danielle is the leader of a clique of arrogant, mean high school girls; she and her rich friends Tiffany and Brooke care only about their pampered selves (although Brooke has periodic misgivings). No one really hangs out with them except a dumb jock named Gavin, and the class nerd Jonathan, and poor Danielle is getting nowhere with the popular guy Drew, even after she and friends accidentally killed his last girlfriend. It's been a year, and Drew still ignores her - but he doesn't ignore the new foreign exchange student Katarina. Since Katarina can't take a hint, Danielle begins plotting her downfall. But there's a slight problem: Danielle and her friends begin experiencing a level of high weirdness in which all three of them rapidly age. This serves to make Danielle more desperate than ever. She'll sacrifice anything, even Drew, to get her youth and looks back.

Road Games
(1981)

Pat Quid is driving a semi across Australia. On the way he encounters various other travellers and the occasional hitchhikers repeatedly as they're traveling the same road. A favorite pastime of Pat is to play games to pass the time on the journey (such as to make up backgrounds of the other people on the road). Pamela is one hitchhiker he picks up. But when she disappears, he suspects that the driver of a van who has been acting a little strange (Smith or Jones), may be the serial killer mentioned on the radio. But his pursuit of the van driver brings him to the attention of the police, who begin to suspect him.

I used to take that ferry over to Algiers on Wednesday nights to see George Porter, Johnny Vidacovich, and Anders Osbourne at The Old Point Bar and then get a cab back across the river.

Yeah. It makes sense as something she would try, but
they didn't write his character in a way that makes it at all likely that he would believe her.

This would have been my rating when I first saw this. But the problematic elements in the plot would lower it a good deal now. :(
