Let's All Rent Some Movies

Yesterday evening, my friends asked me if I saw The Netflix map from The New York Times? I had not, but they assured me I would love it. And I did.

Using just simple data from Netflix -- the top 50 rentals by zipcode for major U.S. cities -- has created a great multimedia graphic for those interested in pop culture and demographics.

So what's popular in Columbia Heights? Looking at the 20010 and 20011, the top-rented among the two zip codes are:
  • Burn After Reading
  • The Changeling
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Doubt
  • Frost/Nixon
  • Milk
  • Rachel Getting Married
  • Revolutionary Road
  • Seven Pounds
  • Slumdog Millionaire
  • Twilight
  • Vicky Christina Barcelona
  • The Wrestler
Have you ever rented any of these titles on Netflix? There's a good chance you did.

Shit. Our video rental list confirms the WaPo's "You're all a bunch of GD hipsters" theory!

Just use Redbox since there's less of a carbon footprint.
