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

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.

American Beauty Movie Netflix Spacey

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.

Hook Robin Williams

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.
