Netflix Streaming Report: The League, Rambo, Time Lapse, Once Upon a Time, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for September 3, 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 Once Upon a Time, Up in the Air, The League, Area 51, and over 50 more titles new to streaming this September.

up in the air movie

Up in the Air (Jason Reitman) Rated R [109 min] – With a job traveling around the country firing people, Ryan Bingham enjoys his life living out of a suitcase, but finds that lifestyle threatened by the presence of a new hire and a potential love interest. Starring George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, and J.K. Simmons

The cast alone is enough to bring a stir to my pants. But if you’re looking for an intellectual drama that hones in on love, life, and existentialism in a hilarious, touching, and poignant way, Up in the Air is one fine piece of cinema. The performances (Anna Kendrick earns her first Oscar nom for her role) and honesty are something missing from a lot of movies these days, and Jason Reitman nails this one out of the ballpark.

the league season 6

The League: The Complete Sixth Season (Jackie Marcus Schaffer and Jeff Schaffer) Semi-scripted comedy about a fantasy football league. Starring Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Jonathan Lajoie, Stephen Rannazzisi, Paul Scheer, and Katie Aselton

I’m a big fan of The League, but unfortunately I do not have FXX – who does really? So I’m excited to catch up on one of the silliest and smarter live-action comedies on television.

Time Lapse Movie

Time Lapse (Bradley King) Not Yet Rated [104 min] – Three friends discover a mysterious machine that takes pictures 24hrs into the future and conspire to use it for personal gain, until disturbing and dangerous images begin to develop. Starring Danielle Panabaker, Matt O’Leary, and George Finn

It’s not so much a good movie as it is a great concept that falls flat on its face in the last third of the film. Time Lapse has its perks, but it definitely could have found better direction to come to a more satisfying ending. Good thing it’s on Netflix to check out if you missed it during its festival run.

frozen once upon a time elsa abc

Once Upon a Time: The Complete Fourth Season (Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz) Rated TV-PG [44 min] – Soon after Emma and Hook unwittingly bring Elsa of Arendelle to Storybrooke, they encounter the mysterious Snow Queen, whose relentless obsession with both Emma and Elsa has chilling consequences. Meanwhile, it appears Regina has at last found true love with Robin Hood. But how will she react when her happy ending is thwarted yet again by a maddening twist of fate? Starring  Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Michael Raymond-James, Robert Carlyle, and Georgina Haig

Because we obviously didn’t get enough of Frozen in theaters. Disney had to squeeze every last inch of the animated feature’s popularity out onto their ABC show.

Area 51 Movie Oren Peli

Area 51 (Oren Peli) Rated R [91 min] – Three young conspiracy theorists attempt to uncover the mysteries of Area 51, the government’s secret location rumored to have hosted encounters with alien beings. What they find at this hidden facility exposes unimaginable secrets. Starring Reid Warner, Darrin Bragg, Ben Rovner

The long awaited sophomore feature from writer/director Oren Peli finally arrived earlier this year. I have not seen it yet, but I am looking forward to finding out whether this filmmaker delivers on the promise of what appeared to be a unique vision when Paranormal Activity released in 2009.
