Netflix Streaming Report: Nymphomaniac: The Director’s Cut, Friends: The Complete Series, and More

Netflix Streaming Report Nymphomaniac The Director's Cut, Friends

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for January 1, 2015. 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 Nymphomaniac: The Director’s Cut, Friends: The Complete Series, Fort Bliss, Chinatown, and more, which you can find after the jump.

Friends: The Complete Series (David Crane and Marta Kauffman) When Monica’s high school friend (Rachel) re-enters her life, she sets off on a series of humorous and entertaining events involving Monica’s brother (Ross), her ex-roommate (Phoebe), and her next door neighbors (Chandler & Joey). Starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer

I’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

Nymphomaniac: The Director’s Cut (Lars von Trier) Not Rated [117 & 123 min] – A self-diagnosed nymphomaniac recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Willem Dafoe, and Connie Nielsen

If you were complete disgusted and offended by the lack of gratuity in Lars von Triers theatrical cut of Nymphomaniac, you’re in luck! With these extended cuts of the film, you’ll have your fill of moral depravity for the year. (Watch Vol. 1 Now) (Watch Vol. 2 Now)

Labor Day (Jason Reitman) Rated PG-13 [111 min] – Depressed single mom Adele and her son Henry offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited. Starring Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Gattlin Griffith, and Clark Gregg

If you’re looking for the exact decline of Jason Reitman’s auteurship, be my guest in checking out this slog of a film. (Watch it now) Men, Women & Children definitely was hardly any better, but at least there was some sort of style utilized.

I, Frankenstein (Stuart Beattie) Rated PG-13 [92 min] – Frankenstein’s creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans. Starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto, and Virginie Le Brun

Want to ring in the New Year with one of the trashiest movies of 2014? This is what you need to have in your life. (Watch it now)

Fort Bliss (Claudia Myers) Not Rated [116 min] – After returning home from an extended tour in Afghanistan, a decorated U.S. Army medic and single mother struggles to rebuild her relationship with her young son. Starring Emmanuelle Chriqui, Michelle Monaghan, Pablo Schreiber

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to catch this flick at the San Diego Film Festival this year, and it didn’t make its way into any theaters that I’m aware of. But I have seen this film pop up in a few lists of underrated films of 2014. I’m a little curious about the buzz surrounding Monaghan’s performance. (Watch it now)
