Netflix Instant View Heads-Ups - Page 45

post #2201 of 3950

There's plenty of Air Bud to watch now too. The holiday section has opened too if you're in the mood for some terrible abc  Family Christmas movies.

post #2202 of 3950

Holy crap, thank you so much all for the recommendation of Bernie.  Watched it this morning.  So glad I did.

 

Also, ultimate Holiday movie that features plenty of old man frontal nudity, Rare Exports has been up (for awhile).  But it's such a great little holiday film and this is the perfect time of year to enjoy it. 

 

Pirates of Penzance is also up if you like operatic musicals featuring pop star(s).  

post #2203 of 3950
I would also like to give thanks for the Bernie rec. I watched it this morning as well, along with Stake Land, recommended in the horror thread. Wasn't as big a fan of that one. But Bernie was good stuff.

Take a break from watching "Predator".  Season 1-7 of Sunny are up.

A con would be the one place in the world where you would be recognized.

Holy shit, Sunny. That's gonna be my next few months.
post #2207 of 3950

One of my favorite Noirs THE BIG COMBO is up on Netflix Instant. From the director of GUN CRAZY.

 

"Shadows and lies are the stars of The Big Combo, a spellbinding black-and-white chiaroscuro with the segmented texture of a spider's web..."

 

Also perhaps of interest - the 1984 heist comedy CRACKERS starring Donald Sutherland, Jack Warden, and a young Sean Penn. I recall not liking it as a kid, but I'm curious enough to want to revisit. From Louis Malle who made one of my favorite films ATLANTIC CITY.

Now, maybe these titles were already there and I am just now noticing them, but Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo, Pocahontas, and The Fox and the Hound are all currently up and streaming in HD!

 

I'm thinking the 2016 section of the deal only included new films from that point onward and stuff that is already "exclusive" somewhere else at the moment.  Any other unclaimed titles have seemingly gone up immediately and are continuing to do so each week.

Oh my, YES.

post #2210 of 3950

love the noirs. 

post #2211 of 3950

So, not new as far as I know, but I need come in here and tell people to watch The Tick (live action) if they have not.  That show was brilliant.

post #2212 of 3950

Bottle Rocket and The Adventures of Tintin (2011 movie) are up.  Also, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  

post #2213 of 3950

Sin Nombre is going away on the 16th, I just finished watching it, it's good.

post #2214 of 3950

Sin Nombre is excellent.  Squeeze it in!

I gave this a shot last night. I can understand why it didn't really find an audience in America, but it was a lot of fun, and absolutely stunning to look at.

 

The chase scene in Morocco is insane.

In many ways, I still think Tin Tin is the 4th Indy movie we should have gotten.

Hmm.  If you guys say so.  I'll make that my Sunday morning pre-football movie this week.  My Sunday morning pre-football movie is 90% of the time something recommended on here, hence last weeks double feature of Bernie and Stake Land.  That's right.  I started at 7am.  I'm an early riser.  And apparently a rambler as well.  I'll shut up now.

post #2219 of 3950

More on Bernie, since I watched it again with my wife (who also loved it):  The Pan-Handle joke cracked me up only because they put a "?" on the graphic and the dude kind of just brushes over it too.  Plus, he HATES that town where the trial was held.  He keeps ripping on them all film.  Calls them all sorts of names.

 

One of my favorite scenes is near the beginning when Bernie realizes that there is an awkward lull in the funeral service, so he just kind of jogs to the organ to play "Amazing Grace" on the organ while standing up.  I lost it during Black's little bouncey trot.  Great stuff.

 

Anyone check out Klown yet?  I think that's still on Instant.  I watched the begininning, but was so embarrassed by the" masturbation on the grandma scene" that I couldn't even keep going.  Wasn't in that type of mood.

Yeah, I could handle about an hour before fast-forwarding to the brothel scene with "all he greatest whores in the world" and then giving up forever - it's just more of that type of stuff for a looooong time.  I'm sure "American Pie" is just as tedious if you don't speak English

It is so wrong.  I laughed my damn ass off.

I should have paid attention to this post, then I would have known that it wouldn't be there anymore Sunday morning when I went to watch it.  Instead I watched The Pact (thank you Horror Movie Recommendations thread) and Navajo Joe (thank you front page), then tried to squeeze in Love, knowing absolutely nothing about it going in.  Holy cow what a boring, pretentious movie that was.  I don't think it helped any when about halfway through I looked up info on the movie and saw it was just a super long Angels and Airwaves video.  I gave up after about an hour.  

post #2223 of 3950

The horrifying documentary Queen of Versailles is up.  Well worth a watch.  Also the animated Batman:Year One is up.

Yeah The Pact............The Pact had some believe-ability issues. I don't want to spoil anything for those planning to watch but the end............seriously?

post #2225 of 3950

For those, like me, who enjoy the DC Animated Movies, they've added a few titles.

 

  • Batman: Year One
  • Batman: Under the Red Hood
  • Superman/Batman: Apocalypse
  • Justice League: Doom
  • All-Star Superman
  • Superman vs The Elite
post #2226 of 3950

Becoming Santa is a documentary about one man's journey in becoming a Santa Claus. Touching, hilarious, fascinating, and highly, highly recommended.

Thank you for pointing this out.  This has been a hard year to feel Christmas spirit, but watching this really helped. Thank you.

Jesus Christ, Queen of Versailles is terrifying. Between the scumbag husband lamenting that his ponzi scheme of taking advantage of poor people has gone bust, to his wife's complete inability to function outside of the million-dollar-a-day lifestyle to their horde of reality TV bound trainwreck kids...a perfect, stupefying snapshot of the upper class falling flat on its face and blaming everyone around them for it.

post #2229 of 3950

I have morbid curiosity about Queen of Versailles, but I refuse to watch it out of fear I'll develop blood pressure problems. 

post #2230 of 3950

It's a really well done documentary, but if you're at all tuned into the how's and why's about the economic freefall we found ourselves in it'll likely stun you into disbelief. I wasn't angry watching it, just shocked at the lack of perspective these people had/have. Even when the wife tries to do something good and offers up a lot of their top-shelf items to families they laid off, she's walking around telling people to blame the banks for their misfortune. Then her nearly compulsive shopping sprees (Who needs three boxes of Operation?!) to her complete inability to do any kind of effective parenting...it's fucking nuts. To these people, their kids are just accessories. Every one of them has "trust fund trainwreck" written all over them. Their nanny's a goddamn hero though.

I just have a mental image, from the trailer, of the husband sitting in his throne (or at least an big, ornate chair) and that kinda turns my stomach. Not that I have a problem with wealth, just that nouveau riche/oblivious-to-the-real-world thing some flaunt. 

post #2232 of 3950

The AV Club posted their Top 20 of the year, and several of them are on Netflix Instant - Poetry, I Wish, Once Upon A Time In Anatolia, Queen of Versailles (obviously),  The Deep Blue Sea, and The Loneliest Planet.

post #2233 of 3950

Justice League : Doom was fun, but All-star Superman was excellent. I enjoy these DC superhero cartoons a lot more than the comics themselves.

post #2234 of 3950
Fans of Sherlock might want to check out The Great Mouse Detective on Instant. It is up now!

I tried watching it, got about 20 minutes or so in and had to turn it off. It made me so fucking angry I literally wanted to strangle the entire fucking lot of them.  Yes, literally, not figuratively.  They are all abhorrent people.  That fat fucking pig actually giggles about the iraqi war and how it's partly his fault for helping to rig the 2000 election.  Brags about it, while sitting in this hideous throne.

I watched All-star Superman and it was indeed quite entertaining.   

post #2237 of 3950
Has anyone mentioned Riki Oh? I finally watched the whole movie last night and it was glorious.
post #2238 of 3950

I watched Riki Oh!  What an awesome and strange experience.

post #2239 of 3950

It was due to this thread that I watched Riki Oh!  And so glad I did.  Kick ass fun. 

post #2240 of 3950

So I just watched this documentary, Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles. 

 

Apparently starting in the early 1980's all the way up until now there have been these weird tiles left all over the US and a few places outside the US with this mysterious talking about Toynbee and Mars. Apparently it's been a phenomenon on the internet(although I have never heard of it) , everyone trying to figure out what the message means and where it comes from. These guys set out to find who is behind it and they do. I really enjoyed this however I wish they had gotten that final interview.

Oslo, August 31st. One of the best (and saddest) movies of the year.

Indeed it is. "Saddest" doesn't quite touch it-- this is an AGGRESSIVELY mournful, bleak movie about addiction, but it's amazing. If you don't see it you're doing yourself a disservice. 

 

Red Hook Summer is up now, too. I kinda want to check it out.

So the wife and I saw it tonight and I thought the movie was A LOT better than I thought it would be. It does show the obliviousness of the rich and all the stupid, annoying shit most people have come to expect from them. At the same time though, I thought the movie did a great job humanizing the family and actually making you empathize with them a little bit by the end of the movie. The rich father getting more and more stressed by the collapse of his business and then coming home to a wife who while still trying to be cheerful in an oh-so-clueless way about everything, still shops like the family is of the same means as they were before the financial collapse. Even the kids showed more awareness at times of things going on than either parent did. The nannies were great though.

post #2244 of 3950
This morning I watched Rare Exporters, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a different kind of Christmas movie.

I was just coming here to post that.   Without a doubt this is one of the best TV dramas I've ever seen and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to catch up.   So. Fucking. Good.

I think what works so well about that movie--and why it probably works even better on repeats--is that it's not Tintin Begins; we're not treated to some overlong origin story of how TinTin came to be a boy detective. Film gives enough information on who he is within the first five minutes of the film and then hits the ground running with a series of spectacular set pieces. Admittedly, it's more rollercoaster ride than actual movie--might explain why there's a few who found it to be boring--but as I've said before in other threads: it's one of the most fun times I had at the theater last year.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day and the original True Grit are up.
