Netflix Streaming Report: Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon 2, Fuller House, Good Burger, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for March 3, 2016. 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 Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon 2, Fuller House, Good Burger, Adult Beginners, and more. Also, find out what the Netflix and Chill pick of the week is.

Crouching Tiger Sword of Destiny

Source: Decider

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (Woo-Ping Yuen) Rated PG-13 [1h 36min] – A story of lost love, young love, a legendary sword and one last opportunity at redemption. Starring Donnie Yen, Michelle Yeoh, Harry Shum Jr., Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jason Scott Lee, and Eugenia Yuan

Behold! Crouching Tiger, Hidden Drag: Sword of Destiny is one of the most unnecessary and terrible sequels you will ever happen upon in our lifetime. At least Dumb and Dumberer provided a few good laughs and some character building. It’s as if Sword of Destiny was made through the unfortunate happenstance that someone who had never seen the original Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was told the premise and was told to run wild for a sequel. This film neither matches the quality nor the storytelling finesse that Ang Lee was able to accomplish in the original.

Fuller House

Fuller House (Jeff Franklin) Rated TV-G [30min] – In a continuation of Full House, D.J. Fuller is a mother of three young boys and is a recent widow. D.J.’s sister Stephanie, her best friend Kimmy and Kimmy’s teenage daughter all move in to help her raise her sons. The house is now a lot fuller! Starring Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Michael Campion, Elias Harger, Soni Bringas, Dashiell Messitt, and Fox Messitt

Is it wrong for me to have not seen a single episode of Full House having grown up in the ’90s? I haven’t bothered watching Fuller House since I would be lost on context, and this series seems beholden to the nostalgia of the series’ characters. I’ve only heard bad things though.

Adult Beginners Movie

Adult Beginners (Ross Katz) Rated R [1h 32min] – A young, narcissistic entrepreneur crashes and burns on the eve of his company’s big launch. With his entire life in total disarray, he leaves Manhattan to move in with his estranged pregnant sister, brother-in-law and 3-year-old nephew in the suburbs – only to become their nanny. Starring Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Joe McHale

I haven’t had a chance to watch this movie, but the cast is pretty solid. Netflix suggests I would find it mildly entertaining.

Before We Go (Chris Evans) Rated PG-13 [1h 35min] – Two strangers stuck in Manhattan for the night grow into each other’s most trusted confidants when an evening of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives. Starring Chris Evans, Alice Eve, and Emma Fitzpatrick

Another movie on the pile of things I need to check out. This is Chris Evans’ directorial debut. Captain America himself has directed a movie. That should be interesting to see how that pans out, right?

(Watch it now)

Good Burger Movie

Good Burger (Brian Robbin) Rated PG [1h 43min] – Two dim-witted teenagers are forced to save the fast food restaurant they work at from going out of business, despite a new-and-improved burger joint opening across the street that want to be the “Top Dog” in the fast food industry. Starring Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, and Sinbad

I’m a dude! He’s a dude! She’s a dude! We’re all dudes, hey!

(Watch it now)

Netflix and Chill Pick of the Week:

Must Love Dogs Movie

Must Love Dogs (Gary David Goldberg) Rated PG-13 [1h 38min] – A forty-something preschool teacher looks to the personals for a change of pace and a relationship, with hilarious results. Starring Diane Lane, John Cusack, and Elizabeth Perkins

So you want to sit down and check out a nice, tender romance movie with your S/O. In the world of Tinder, the dating world has progressed so fast that Must Love Dogs seems overly dated. At least When Harry Met Sally… and other Nora Ephron classics have likeable characters that make you champion the budding relationships within. This movie is just subpar, and it will have you chilling in no time when you discover how “meh” it all is.

Netflix Streaming Report: The Walking Dead Season 5, Batman Begins, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for October 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 The Walking Dead Season 5, Batman Begins, Love Actually, The Wedding Singer, and more. Also, see all the titles that are leaving this month.

The walking Dead season 5

Source: i09

The Walking Dead Season 5 (Scott M. Gimple) Police officer Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies. Starring Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yuen, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Emily Kinney, and Danai Gurira

Das good, eh? Sí. Me gusta. Season 4 started off strong, but became aggravatingly slow in its later half. Season 5 is unrelenting. There’s never a dull moment despite a more transitional back eight episodes in the Alexandria Safe-Zone. It’s only setting up to a big premiere with Season 6 starting up October 13. And it’s going to be a really great season. Binge! Binge! Binge!

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, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Martin Freeman, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Keria Knightley, and Andrew Lincoln

Is it too soon for Christmas movies? Yes. Is it a hilarious coincidence that this film and The Walking Dead Season 5 both appeared on Netflix streaming within the same week? Double yes.

batman begins

Batman Begins (Christopher Nolan) Rated PG-13 [140 min] – After training with his mentor, Batman begins his war on crime to free the crime-ridden Gotham City from corruption that the Scarecrow and the League of Shadows have cast upon it. Starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe, Liam Neeson, Katie Holms, Gary Oldman, and Cillian Murphy

It’s not the Dark Knight trilogy film we deserve, but the one Netflix subscribers need? It’s not what Netflix is underneath, but what they choose to stream that defines them?

(Watch it now)

American Pie

Source: Tumblr

American Pie (Paul Weitz) Rated R [95 min] – Four teenage boys enter a pact to lose their virginity by prom night. Starring Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth, Eddie Kay Thomas, Sean William Scott, Tara Reid, Natasha Lyonne, and Eugene Levy

This coming of age teen sex comedy holds a special place in my heart. It’s like what Scream did to the horror genre. American Pie was a complete revitalization for comedies and it still withstands the test of time because of how relatably hilarious it is.

‘American Reunion’ Poster Pays Tribute To The Original ‘American Pie’ Poster

American Reunion Title

I’ve said it before AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN, American Pie is one of my most favorite of all teen, coming of age, raunchy comedies. LOVE IT. A new poster for American Reunion has recently been released and it pays homage to the first American Pie movie poster. In my mind, this poster solidifies that this movie will be awesome – hopefully I’m not setting the bar too high. Check out the posters after the break. Continue reading

American Reunion Red Band Trailer and Promo Images

American Reunion Title

Let’s tickle those tummies with a good old fashioned red band trailer for American Reunion. The characters conceived by Adam Herz are all back and headed to their high school reunion at East Great Falls. Directed by the duo who brought you Harold and Kumar, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, we will find what antics Jim, Stifler, Finch, Oz, Kevin, and Michelle have all been up to since we last saw them together in American Pie 2. To the next step! Continue reading

Twelve Years Later: ‘American Reunion’ Cast Photobooth Montage

Speaking of reunions, the original cast of American Pie are back and ready to serve another slice. Coincidentally, these pictures of the cast from the fourth film in the franchise (to make an appearance in the box office) comes twelve years after American Pie debuted back in 1999. For me, American Pie is one of the best comedies that will always fulfill my need for a chuckle. Check out the nostalgic montage after the break and be sure to catch American Reunion when it hits theaters April 6, 2012! Continue reading

Official Teaser Poster for “American Reunion”

The tagline is great, the imagery simple, and my expectations are mediocre. I love this franchise and the first film holds a special place in my heart as one of my favorite comedies of all time, but with their recent run of straight to DVD movies, my hope American Reunion succeeds is less than optimistic. Either way, I hope they bring back the original spark that American Pie once held.

A Real American Pie Sequel in Progress

One of my favorite franchises has been on the verge of an actual sequel to American Wedding for a little while now and Comingsoon.net got an exclusive word from producer Craig Perry on the status of the upcoming Americna Pie sequel, written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle). American Pie came out in 1999 and the last official theatrical release, American Wedding, debuted in 2003. It has been almost a decade and four direct to DVD movies since the franchise’s theatrical release death. This new movie that is in the works is neither a remake nor a reboot, but an actual sequel! Will we see the cast return? Catch the news after the jump!

Movie Quote of the Day: American Pie

Over ten years ago, a coming of age teen comedy about pie came into my life and still has a place in my heart today. Today’s movie quote of the day comes to you from this classic teen comedy.

Jim’s Dad: We’ll just tell your mother that… we ate it all.
