Netflix Streaming Report: The Blues Brothers, The Exorcist, Super Troopers, and More

Netflix Streaming Report The Blues Brothers, The Exorcist, Super Troopers, Switched at Birth, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for May 7, 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 The Blues Brothers, The Exorcist, Super Troopers, Switched at Birth, and many more for this May, which you can find after the jump.

The Blues Brothers (John Landis) Rated R [133 min] – Jake Blues, just out from prison, puts together his old band to save the Catholic home where he and brother Elwood were raised. Starring John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, and Carrie Fisher

What started as an SNL skit became one of the most iconic cult comedies in the history of cinema. I don’t think it would ever be possible to recreate the magic of The Blues Brothers today. It’s unfathomable. Would you have to random people trying to save a church with Iggy Azalea and Kanye West? I don’t think so. But if so I hope the studios pay me for that idea. This is one musical comedy that you cannot miss.

The Exorcist (William Friedkin) Rated R [122 min] – When a teenage girl is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother seeks the help of two priests to save her daughter. Starring Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, and Linda Blair

As a horror fan I’ve never found the excitement and terror that so many have felt from the original Exorcist. I can understand how it can be horrifying to some, but to me it’s just too basic. Now that it’s on Netflix I would like to rewatch it to try and give it another chance.

Legally Blonde (Robert Luketic) Rated PG-13 [96 min] – When a blonde sorority queen is dumped by her boyfriend, she decides to follow him to law school to get him back and, once there, learns she has more legal savvy than she ever imagined. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber, Jennifer Coolidge, Holland Taylor, and Ali Larter

You cannot not like this movie for all the goofiness and dead pan, cutesy humor Reese Witherspoon delivers. She’s so amazing in this film with the amount of heart and energy she brings into Elle. It’s one of those classic, early aught comedies that just hit at the right time.

Super Troopers (Jay Chandrasekhar) Rated R [100 min] – Five Vermont state troopers, avid pranksters with a knack for screwing up, try to save their jobs and out-do the local police department by solving a crime. Starring Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, André Vippolis, Erik Stolhanske, Steve Lemme, Marisa Coughlan, and Paul Soter

If you haven’t seen this movie, do us all a favor and stop reading this and check it out. There are very few, modern cult comedies better than Super Troopers.
