Netflix Streaming Report: Nurse Jackie, Parenthood, The West Wing, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for December 31, 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 Nurse Jackie, Parenthood, The West Wing, and more.

Parenthood Season 6

Source: BuzzFeed

Parenthood (Season 6) (Jason Katims) Rated TV-PG [43 min] – The lives and tragedies of the Braverman family tree. Starring Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard, Monica Potter, Erika Christensen, Sam Jaeger, Savannah Paige Rae, Max Burkholder, Joy Bryant, Miles Heizer, Mae Whitman, Bonnie Bedelia, Craig T. Nelson, and Tyree Brown

I haven’t seen a single episode, but I’ve heard about how much the final season had grown adults weeping like babies. Now that all of the seasons are finally on Netflix it’s time to get binging.

Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie (Season 1-6) (Liz Brixius, Evan Dunsky, and Linda Wallem) Rated TV-MA [27 min] – A drug-addicted nurse struggles to find a balance between the demands of her frenetic job at a New York City hospital and an array of personal dramas. Starring Edie Falco, Peter Facinelli, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Merritt Wever, Anna Deavere Smith, Adam Ferrera, Ruby Jerins, Morris Chestnut, and Betty Gilpie

Another series I have not yet gotten to. Nurse Jackie has never been one that stood out to me, but Edie Falco (The Sopranos) continually popped up when it came down to awards season for her role. I’d be interested to see what kind of adventures a female anti-hero could get into with the acting caliber of Falco.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (Gore Verbinski) Rated PG-13 [143 min] –  Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with eccentric pirate “Captain” Jack Sparrow to save his love, the governor’s daughter, from Jack’s former pirate allies, who are now undead. Starring Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, and Kiera Knightely

The only Pirates of the Caribbean movie you’ll ever need.

The West Wing

The West Wing (Season 1-7) (Aaron Sorkin) Rated TV-14 [44 min] – Inside the lives of staffers in the west wing of the White House. Starring Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe, Allison Janney, John Spencer, Bradley Whitford, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, and Dulé Hill

And if you haven’t seen Aaron Sorkin’s (The Social Network; Money Ball; Steve Jobs) serial classic, like myself, again, now is the time to get your binge on.

Netflix Streaming Report: Dawn of the Croods, Raze, Glitter Force, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for December 24, 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 Dawn of the Croods, Raze, Glitter Force, and more. Also, find out what’s leaving Netflix as of January 2016.

Raze Movie Fight

Source: Tumblr

Raze (Josh C. Waller) Rated R [92 min] – Raze, a horror/action film, focuses on two abducted women & 50 other women who are forced to fight each other using their bare hands. Starring Zoë Bell, Rachel Nichols, and Tracie Thoms

As dark and disturbing as Raze is, I like the concept of the film and vigor these ladies put into their performances. Sadly the story and direction are very weak and the characters two-dimensional. The fight scenes are pretty vicious and spectacularly brutal at times. It’s worth checking out if you have nothing else better to do with your time.

Crackling Fireplace Netflix 4K

Source: Buzzfeed

Fireplace 4K: Crackling Fireplace and Birchwood (George Ford) Rated TV-G [60 min] – The first of its kind in UHD 4K, with the clearest picture available, a real fireplace spakrs and crackles, adding warmth and atmosphere to any home.

If you’re getting a new 4K television this Christmas, this yuletide fireplace is a great way to test it out.

(Watch it now)

Dawn of the Croods Netflix Season 1

Dawn of the Croods (Season 1) (Brendan Hay) Rated TV-Y7 [23 min] – The world’s first family is back for more laughs as they discover sports, sleepovers, and other wonders in a world of exotic creatures and adventures. Starring Dan Milano, Cree Summer, and Stephanie Lemelin [Watch the trailer]

I was pleasantly surprised by The Croods when it released back in 2013. It isn’t a monumental movie that hosts a slew of memorable scenes, but it is for the most part fun and not too overly DreamWorks – referential and childish. However, Dawn of the Croods looks to be far more crude and less enjoyable than its film counterpart. I’m not very interested in where the Croods comes from, as Dawn serves as a prequel, but rather I’m more curious as to how the family will move forward after the events that took place in the film.

Netflix Streaming Report: Christmas 2015 Edition

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for December 17, 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. Since nothing but garbage has been made newly available this past week, and no one should subject themselves to watching Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous 6, I’ve compiled a thorough list of all the Christmas movies on Netflix that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home this holiday season.

Prep and Landing: Operation Secret Santa

Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection (Many Directors) – From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes an extraordinary new collection of award-winning and beloved short films for the first time with all-new extras including an inside look at the Disney Animation shorts, featuring introductions and interviews with the acclaimed filmmakers themselves.

On this year’s Disney Animated Shorts Collection you’ll find Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa. It’s a cute little film that has the elves helping out Mrs. Claus in a tight bind. Plus, all of the shorts included in the collection are all great, including my favorite of the bunch, Paperman.

Here’s the full list of shorts:

  • Frozen Fever (2015), Feast (2014), Get A Horse! (2013), Paperman (2012), Tangled Ever After (2012), The Ballad of Nessie (2011), Tick Tock Tale (2010), Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa (2010), How to Hook Up Your Home Theater (2007), The Little Matchgirl (2006), Lorenzo (2004), and John Henry (2000)

(Watch it now)

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Perez Hilton

The Nightmare Before Christmas (Henry Selick) Rated PG [76 min] – Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn’t quite understand the concept. Starring Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, and Catherine O’Hara

Despite director Henry Selick confirming that The Nightmare Before Christmas is in fact a “Halloween movie,” the film is still an exceptional watch during the holidays. Because for us horror fans, it’s Halloween 24/7/365, or 366 next year.

(Watch it now)

Love Actually

Source: Cosmo

Love Actually (Richard Curtis) Rated R [135 min] – Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England. Starring Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Kiera Knightley, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, and Liam Neeson

Pretty sure Love Actually has become essential holiday viewing for many since its release in 2003.

Crackling Fireplace for your Home

Source: Buzzfeed

Fireplace for Your Home (Netflix) [60 min] – This edition includes a crackling yule log set to holiday favorites such as “Joy to the World” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

Having a Christmas party? This crackling fire place is the best thing to throw on in the background if you want to set a nice ambiance for your guests.

(Watch it now)

A Christmas Carol 1938

Source: CarensClassicCinema

A Christmas Carol (1938) (Edwin L. Marin) Not Rated [69 min] – A greedy miser is given an otherworldly opportunity to redeem himself on Christmas Eve, when three spirits take him on a journey of revelation. Starring Reginald Owen, Gene Lockhart, Kathleen Lockhart

I haven’t seen this first adaptation of A Christmas Carol, but I’m sure it is adequate enough if you’re looking to watch this classic story.

(Watch it now)

White Christmas Movie

Source: Rockettes.com

White Christmas (Michael Curtiz) Not Rated [120 min] – A successful song-and-dance team become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former commanding general. Starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney

I’ve never understood why White Christmas has been such a holiday staple in cinema history. I think the story is uninteresting, it’s overly long, and I don’t feel the romantic chemistry that much. However, the singing and dancing are grand, the production is great, and the acting is stellar. I just don’t know. Someone help me figure out this conundrum.

(Watch it now)

Happy Christmas Movie

Source: Tumblr

Happy Christmas (Joe Swanberg) Rated R [82 min] – After a break up, Jenny moves in with writer Kelly, her filmmaker husband, and their child. Despite a rocky start, Jenny’s influence helps Kelly realize that an evolution in her life, career and relationship is necessary for her happiness. Starring Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Mark Webber, and Joe Swanberg

Not your typical Christmas bread and butter, Happy Christmas flirts more with the idea of family and being there or one another. Christmas is used as a backdrop.

(Watch it now)

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

It’s Bill Murray singing Christmas carols with celebrity guests. What more could you really ask for?

(Watch it now)

Bad Santa

Source: Perez Hilton

Bad Santa (Terry Zwigoff) Rated R [91 min] – A miserable conman and his partner pose as Santa and his Little Helper to rob department stores on Christmas Eve. But they run into problems when the conman befriends a troubled kid, and the security boss discovers the plot. Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Bernie Mac, and Lauren Graham

Bad Santa is truly one of the best Christmas comedies I have seen thus far in my life. It’s sharp, raunchy, and everything your traditional Christmas movie isn’t while still maintaining the spirit of the holiday season. What other movie are you going to find a drunk mall Santa piss himself while also shacking up with a senile grandmother and her socially inept, cherub faced grandson?

(Watch it now)

Mean Girls

Source: MTV

Mean Girls (Mark Water) Rated PG-13 [97 min] – Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George. Starring Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey, Jonathan Bennett, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Lizzy Caplan, Daniel Franzese, Neil Flynn, Rajiv Surendra, Amy Poehler, Amy Gasteyer, and Tim Meadows

Sure, Mean Girls only celebrates Christmas for about eight minutes, but they are eight glorious minutes. Who doesn’t yell out “FOUR FOR YOU GLEN COCO! YOU GO GLEN COCO!”? Who hasn’t memorized Kevin G and the Power of 3’s rap lyrics? I would find it hard to believe you don’t dance along with the Plastics during the Winter Talent Show to “Jingle Bell Rock”. Plus, Mean Girls is such an awesome movie anyways.

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.

(Watch it now)

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 zoey deutch

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]

Netflix Streaming Report: Tangerine, Hook, American Beauty, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for December 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 Tangerine, Hook, American Beauty, Super Size me, Best of Enemies, and more.

Tangerine Movie Netflix Duplass

Source: MTV

Tangerine (Sean Baker) Rated R [88 min] – A working girl tears through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp who broke her heart. Starring Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, and Karren Karagulian

There’s been a lot of talking about Tangerine. It’s been popping up on some critics’ Best of 2015 lists. I didn’t really know what to expect when I sat down to watch it this past week. It’s a very original story that has heart in all the right places. I don’t think the history between characters Sin-Dee and Alexandra is as fleshed out as it needs to be in order to feel the weight of their decisions on one another, but the time spent with the two certainly creates just enough resonance to understand their plight. Tangerine is wildly unlike anything I’ve seen in quite some time and it definitely stands to be one of the more honest stories about friendship in 2015.

(Watch it now)

American Beauty Movie Netflix Spacey

Source: MovieQuotes

American Beauty (Sam Mendes) Rated R [122 min] – A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter’s best friend. Starring Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening, Mena Suvari, and Thora Birch

Call me nostalgic, there’s something about American Beauty that fascinated me as a young lad. Not because there are boobs or a mumbling emo kid who video tapes everything, but I just knew deep down that this film would be important. Besides winning the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Actor (Spacey), there’s something truly raw and deeply emotional that has stuck with me and probably with many others who have seen it. Sam Mendes has crafted a remarkable film in every way possible.

(Watch it now)

Hook Robin Williams

Source: Lovelace-Media

Hook (Steven Spielberg) When Captain Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy. Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, Julia Roberts, and Bob Hoskins

Maybe it’s because I was raised at the time of its release, but I will never understand the hate toward Hook. It’s colorful, energetic, and it’s highly quotable. The production design is beautiful, the costumes are inventive, and it has Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Robers, and Bob Hoskins. What more could you want people? Are you not entertained? Tell me!

A League of Their Own Movie

A League of Their Own (Penny Marshall) Rated PG [128 min] – Two sisters join the first female professional baseball league and struggle to help it succeed amidst their own growing rivalry. Starring Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Madonna, Roise O’Donnell, and Tom Hanks

This movie is important on so many levels. A League of Their Own is a brilliantly told ensemble piece full of extraordinary women. Why don’t we have more movies about women in sports? It’s kind of interesting if you think about it. Everyone needs to see this movie.

Best of Enemies Documentary

Best of Enemies (Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville) Rated R [87 min] – A documentary on the series of televised debates in 1968 between the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F. Buckley Jr. Starring Gore Vidal, William F. Buckley, and Dick Cavett

I haven’t seen Best of Enemies, but I’ve heard good things and that it has Oscar potential.

Netflix Streaming Report: JESSICA JONES Season 1 and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 26, 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 Jessica Jones Season 1, Home, Some Kind of Beautiful, and more. Also, find out what’s leaving Netflix streaming this December.

Jessica Jones Netflix Season 1

Jessica Jones Season 1 (Melissa Rosenberg) Rated TV-MA [60 min] – A former super-heroine decides to reboot her life by becoming a private investigator. Starring Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, David Tennant, Carrie-Anne Moss, Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval [Watch the Trailer]

I was really excited about Jessica Jones going into its first season. After a stupendous first season of Daredevil, Marvel and Netflix have proven that they could deliver solid, long form storytelling with their superheroes. And everything leading up to Jessica Jones felt right. From the casting to the tone, they were hitting every beat to set the series up for success. But with as much as I found right in Jessica Jones, there were little aspects of the series that didn’t sit right with me.

The story conceived by Melissa Rosenberg is excellent. The themes of power and control that Jessica Jones covers are rich and progressive. There are a handful of moments that drag the series down and make binging difficult. We end up in a lot of repeat territory that becomes slightly aggravating to endure. If Jessica Jones’ episode count was cut down to eight episodes instead of thirteen it would have felt better paced television.

Jessica Jones isn’t action heavy like Daredevil, which isn’t a problem at all. It’s more of a psychological thriller with a handful of good action beats. There are some terrifying moments that completely wow with suspense. What I love most about Jessica Jones is the sense of unknowing that Kilgrave (David Tennant) places on Jessica because you resonate with her fears.

Tennant is wickedly brilliant as Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) foil, and the supporting cast consisting of Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker are incredible complements to their characters. However, I found Carrie-Anne Moss’ uptight Hogarth and Wil Traval’s cartoonish Will Simpson to be too grating to tolerate. I’m really glad that the series never lost focus on Jessica Jones when another hero, Luke Cage, who is also getting his own show, was involved. The series is driven by Jones and proves that there should be more room made in Marvel’s sandbox to include more female-centric content.

Home Movie DreamWorks Oh Alien Dancing

Source: RaisingThreeSaavyLadies.com

Home (Tim Johnson) Rated PG [94 min] – Oh, an alien on the run from his own people, lands on Earth and makes friends with the adventurous Tip, who is on a quest of her own. Starring Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin, and Jennifer Lopez

There’s a reason why I have not seen Home yet, and it’s because it looks like it takes animation back 10 years. The movie looks atrocious and mind-boggling stupid. There’s nothing remotely cute about the film and Oh’s bumbling antics. Don’t watch this.

Some Kind of Beautiful Salma Hayek Swimming Naked

Source: Pinterest

Some Kind Of Beautiful (Tom Vaughan) [Limited] Rated R [100 min] – A drama about a Cambridge poetry professor who begins to re-evaluate his life of Byronic excess. Starring Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, Jessica Alba, and Malcolm McDowell

LOL. What happened to Salma Hayek’s career? Don’t watch this either.

Netflix Streaming Report: W/ Bob and David, Dior and I, Continuum, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 19, 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 W/ Bob and David, John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, Continuum Season 4, and more.

W/ Bob and David (David Cross, Bob Odenkirk) Rated TV-MA [30 min] – After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEALs, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best: making sketch comedy. Starring David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, and John Ennis [Watch the Trailer]

It’s pretty slim pickens in terms of new titles on Netflix right now, but if there’s one thing the streaming platform has proven is that you can’t discount its original content. I’ve never seen Mr. Show nor have I given W/ Bob and David a look yet, but I’m a big fa of Bob Odenkirk’s and David Cross’s work, so I can only imagine how funny this series is.

Joaquin Phoenix I'm Still Here

Source: Tumblr

I’m Still Here (Casey Affleck) Rated R [108 min] – Documenting Joaquin Phoenix’s transition from the acting world to a career as an aspiring rapper. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Antony Langdon, and Carey Perloff

I’m only sharing with you the fact that I’m Still Here is available so you won’t watch it. This mockumentary is horrible and provides no value in its attempt to entertain or comment on celebrity culture. It’s a complete waste of time.

Jessica Jones Season 1 Netflix

Jessica Jones Season 1 (Melissa Rosenberg) Rated TV-MA [60 min] – A former super-heroine decides to reboot her life by becoming a private investigator. Starring Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, David Tennant, Carrie-Anne Moss, Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval [Watch the Trailer]

[Note: This series releases at 12:01 AM, Friday, November 20]

After Marvel’s Daredevil proved to be a hit early this year it was no surprise in the excitement for Jessica Jones. Bringing audiences back into Hell’s Kitchen, Jessica Jones takes us on a different perspective of the gruff New York City neighborhood. My anticipation is not just in seeing how well the first female superhero-led property will do and how she will be received, but I’m also intrigued in the idea of popularizing a fairly unknown hero. I think Krysten Ritter is a wonderful actress and I’m really looking forward to seeing how well Jessica Jones takes off.

Netflix Streaming Report: Master of None Season 1 and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 12, 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 Master of None Season 1, The Wolfpack, The Little Death, and more.

Netflix Master of None Aziz Ansari

Master of None Season 1 (Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang) Rated TV-MA [30 min] – New Yorker Dev takes on such pillars of maturity as the first big job, a serious relationship, and busting sex offenders on the subway. Starring Aziz Ansari, Noël Wells, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Kelvin Yu, and H. Jon Benjamin [Watch the Trailer]

I can’t say Master of None is the best Netflix original series thus far because I haven’t had the chance to catch up on all of them, but what I can say is that Aziz Ansari has made a damn good show. Master of None wears its heart on its sleeve to deliver some of the most sincere, observational comedy about love and life as a 30-something struggling, minority actor in New York. It’s as if I’m watching a beautiful, cinematic adaptation of Aziz’s stand-up. Fans of Louie will love Master of None. It’s not as dark as Louis C.K.’s humor, but it carries a more endearing, indie romantic dramedy vibe.

The Wolfpack documentary

Source: Tumblr

The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle) Rated R [80 min] – Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed, ‘The Wolfpack,’ the brothers spend their childhood reenacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. Their world is shaken up when one of the brothers escapes and everything changes. Starring Bhagavan Angulo, Govinda Angulo, Jagadisa Angulo, and Krsna Angulo

One of the most peculiar stories I have ever heard of, The Wolfpack is a great, bite-sized documentary that was meant for Netflix stream. There isn’t a completely satisfying narrative, but the series of events told by the siblings endure is absolutely fascinating.

The Little Death Role Play

Source: Films and Pies

The Little Death (Josh Lawson) Rated PG-13 [96 min] – The secret lives of five suburban couples living in Sydney reveal both the fetishes and the repercussions that come with sharing them. Starring Bojana Novakovic, Damon Herriman, and Josh Lawson

Similarly told like Babel or Crash, The Little Death is a lighthearted romp that attempts too hard to interconnect a handful of couples through their unusual, sexual fetishes. The individual stories are better than their whole, with some working better than others. With all the best intentions, The Little Death is at times sweet and awkwardly humorous, but sadly poorly constructed.

Andrew McMahon

Dear Jack (Joshua Morrisroe) Unrated [67 min] – Chronicles Andrew McMahon on a roller-coaster year, through the highs of releasing the first Jack’s Mannequin album and the lows of being diagnosed with leukemia and breaking up with the love of his life. Starring Andrew McMahon, Tommy Lee, Lin McMahon

I’m solely suggesting Dear Jack because I’ve been a huge fan of Andrew McMahon’s work ever since his Something Corporate days – m/. The man has a wonderful talent and is the living embodiment of perseverance.

Netflix Streaming Report: Can’t Hardly Wait, The Devil’s Advocate, Rain Main, The 100, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 5, 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 Can’t Hardly Wait, The Devil’s Advocate, Rain Main, The 100, and more.

Addams Family Values

Addams Family Values (Barry Sonnenfeld) Rated PG-13 [94 min] – A comical Gothic horror-movie-type family tries to rescue their beloved uncle from his gold-digging new love. Starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, and Christina Ricci [Watch the Trailer]

If you’re looking for that perfect Thanksgiving movie to get you into the holiday spirit, Addams Family Values is what you seek. Anytime I rewatch this classic family film I’m always surprised by all the little quips I missed when I was a young lad. There’s so much hilarious adult content sprinkled through dark humor that it’s easy for kids to misinterpret the humor while adults get the last laugh.

Half Baked Dave Chappelle

Half Baked (Tamra Davis) Rated R [82 min] – The story of three not so bright men who come up with a series of crazy schemes to get a friend out of jail. Starring Dave Chappelle, Guillermo Díaz, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams, and Rachel True [Watch the Trailer]

I must have watched Half Baked a good 100 times throughout high school and college. The Dave Chappelle era was so strong that it was hard to resist. It’s a highly quotable movie, the camaraderie between friends is fantastic, and everyone is just plain hilarious. One of the all-time best comedies in my opinion.

I will never not let you know that Can’t Hardly Wait has come back on Netflix. Everyone must see this movie. Just stop reading ahead. Watch the sh*t out of this movie.

Starring Aziz Ansari, Noël Wells, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Kelvin Yu, and H. Jon Benjamin [Watch the Trailer]

First things first, I had no idea Aziz Ansari was as young as he is, 32. I thought he was at least upper 30s. Secondly, Master of None looks like a perfect balance of laughs and feels that should spark an emotional accord with everyone. I’m anticipating the series when it premieres tomorrow, Friday, November 6!

Netflix Streaming Report: Walt Disney Shorts, Chasing Life Season 2, Kung Fury, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for October 29, 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 Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection, Chasing Life Season 2, Kung Fury, August: Osage County, and more.

Frozen Fever

Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection (Many Directors) – From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes an extraordinary new collection of award-winning and beloved short films for the first time with all-new extras including an inside look at the Disney Animation shorts, featuring introductions and interviews with the acclaimed filmmakers themselves.

Shorts include:

This is a wonderful bundle of all the Walt Disney Animation shorts for easy consumption. From recent Oscar winner’s Paperman and Feast to classics like John Henry and Prep & Landing, these bite sized Disney shorts are perfect to sit down for some quick entertainment.

Kung Fury Movie

Kung Fury (David Sandberg) Unrated [31 min] – In 1985, Kung Fury, the toughest martial artist cop in Miami, goes back in time to kill the worst criminal of all time – kung fuhrer Hitler. Starring David Sandberg, Jorma Taccone, and Steven Chew

Everything about David Sandberg’s crowdfunded project is simply magical. The delightful insanity of Kung Fury makes this project worth every penny donated. Tremendous love and support was put into the production of this fantastical ode to martial arts and police action films of the ’80s. Kung Fury finds the perfect combo of the two, delivering fun action, the cheesiest one-liners, and an awesome ’80s synth score.

Chasing Life Season 2

Chasing Life Season 2 (Susanna Fogel, Joni Lefkowitz, and Ricardo Álvarez Canales) [42 min] – Follows a young woman’s life after she is diagnosed with cancer. Starring Italia Ricci, Mary Page Keller, Richard Brancatisano, Haley Ramm, Aisha Dee, Scott Michael Foster, Rebecca Schull, Jessica Meraz, and Steven Weber

Although I haven’t indulged in the second season of Chasing Life, I rather enjoyed the first. All of the characters are pretty well written, strong, and well-acted by a group of young, talented actors. This is the final season since ABC Family pulled the plug earlier this year. From what I’ve been told, they do leave the series nicely wrapped up for those like myself who desire closure.

August: Osage County Meryl Streep

Source: AwardsWatch

August: Osage County (John Wells) A look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Starring Meryl Streep, Dermot Mulroney, Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Sam Shepard,  Julianne Nicholson,  Margo Martindale, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Chris Cooper

For me, August: Osage County is a solid movie that only needs to be seen once. The performances from the spectacularly cast bunch are a treat as they each have their own moment to shine, especially Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep of course. But the rest of the family involved all have their own place and purpose. It’s a well-rounded film that doesn’t completely wow, but overall it’s not a bad sit if
