Netflix Streaming Report: Snowpiercer, Django Unchanged, Sons of Anarchy, and More

etflix Streaming Report Snowpiercer, Django Unchanged, Sons of Anarchy, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for October 30, 2014. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with Snowpiercer, Django Unchanged, Sons of Anarchy (Season 6), and more, which you’ll find after the break.

Snowpiercer (Bong Joon-ho) Rated R [126 min] – In a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off all life on the planet except for a lucky few that boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system evolves. Starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, and Ed Harris

You need to watch this movie immediately. Don’t even read further into the plot. Don’t even look at reviews. Just watch Snowpiercer now. And then buy it. (Watch it now)

Django Unchanged (Quentin Tarantino) Rated R [165 min] With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo DiCaprio

What we have here is 2/3 of a good movie. Once the ultimate climax happens between Leo and Christoph Waltz, the movie loses a lot of tension and steam. Django is such an unsatisfying character that Jamie Foxx’s story arc has little impact on the film’s overall enjoyment. (Watch it now)

Sons of Anarchy (Season 6) (Kurt Sutter) – A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club. Starring Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, and Mark Boone Junior

Another show on my shame list I need to catch up on. This is the penultimate season. So get to it! (Watch it now)

Battle Royale (Kinji Fukasaku) Not Rated  [114 min] – In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary “Battle Royale” act. Starring Tatsuya Fujiwara, Aki Maeda, and Tarô Yamamoto

If you want to know where The Hunger Games unknowingly didn’t rip off – according to author Suzanne Collins – you need to check out Battle Royale immediately. Battle Royale has more character and more emotional weight than anything we’ve seen in The Hunger Games thus far. (Watch it now) I can’t say the same for its sequel, but you can watch it too. I hear it’s lest to be desired. (Watch Battle Royale 2 now)

We Are the Best! (Lukas Moodysson) Not Rated [102 min] – Three girls in 1980s Stockholm decide to form a punk band — despite not having any instruments and being told by everyone that punk is dead. Starring Mira Barkhammar, Mira Grosin, Liv LeMoyne

I had heard that this is a great foreign flick from Sweden. It seems very heartfelt and unique for its time. (Watch it now)
