Netflix Streaming Report: A Very Murray Christmas

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for December 10, 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 A Very Murray Christmas, Phoenix, Vampire Academy, and more.

A Very Murray Christmas Netflix

A Very Murray Christmas (Sofia Coppola) Rated TV-MA [56 min] – Bill Murray worries no one will show up to his T.V. show due to a terrible snow-storm in New York City. Starring Bill Murray, Paul Shaffer, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, Maya Rudolph, Jenny Lewis, David Johansen, George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Michael Cera, and Chris Rock

Bill Murray, Christmas jingles, and a slew of celebrity appearances. What more could you ask for in a brisk, one-hour holiday special? It’s not going to replace A Charlie Brown Christmas, Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, or It’s a Wonderful Life, but it is a fun little celebration that would be nice to have on as background noise with all the great musical numbers.

Phoenix 2014 Foreign Movie

Phoenix (Christian Petzold) Rated PG-13 [98 min] – A disfigured concentration-camp survivor, unrecognizable after facial reconstruction surgery, searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband who might have betrayed her to the Nazis. Starring Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, and Nina Kunzendorf

I haven’t had a second to sit back and enjoy what is being named as one of the year’s best releases. The subject matter may be difficult for some to stomach, but from what I’ve heard from others, Phoenix is a really good watch

Vampire Academy (Mark Waters) Rated PG-13 [104 min] – Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story. Starring Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, and Gabriel Byrne

True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, The Twilight Saga, and Underworld, you would think someone would catch on that we’ve had a bit of an overload on the whole niche as of late, right? Vampire Academy in no way helps bring vampires back into the forefront of pop culture, it reinforces the fact that someone needs to drive a stake into the genre to put it to rest. Without the enthusiasm of the young cast Vampire Academy would have been insufferable. [Read my full review]
