Between Top Gear, which I've been watching for years and the American version hasn't been able to come close, and The Warriors it seems I'll be diving back deep into my Netflix for awhile. I have this weird constantly using then never touching relationship with Netflix instant. I'll get a good solid 2 weeks use out of it then stop stone cold from even glancing at it for another week or so. Sometimes it has to do with the show I'm watching ending or sometimes something comes up to break the cycle.
New To Netflix Mar. 28th
|1. The L Word|
A drama about lesbians would get any teenage boy to begin watching the L word but it took a now ex-girlfriend to convince me. Though the show never fully clicked for me the show is genuinely good. Some of it can be slightly over-the-top but if you're looking for a sexy good show to watch in the evenings, this is a good one.
|2. Mad Men|
Season 5 comes to Netflix just in time to be marathoned before season 6 starts on April 7th. Personally I never got into the show that seems to be about affairs, smoking, and drinking scotch. But Matthew Floritas will be posting about the show when it begins next week.
|3. Top Gear|
Series 18 has been added to Netflix in a must watch show. Even if you have no interest in cars Top Gear does a great job of balancing an informational program with something everyone can watch and enjoy. Honestly if you haven't watch Top Gear by now what have you been doing with yourself?
|4. LOL: Laughing Out Loud|
LMAO! LOL! OMG! Miley! Ok so maybe this is a movie you should actively avoid, forever. If you're the type who has friends who enjoy making fun of movies this is the one to put on. A character in the movie is un-ironically called Lol, need I say more?
Expiring Soon Mar. 28th
Apr. 1st: Based off a manga and soon to be remade in the US, Oldboy is a story about someone locked away in a hotel room for 15 years without knowing why. Stylized to hell (in a good way) the film looks fantastic and is a must see.
|2. A Bronx Tale|
Apr. 1st: One of only two films De Niro himself ever directed, A Bronx Tale follows a young boy pulled in two directions. The right direction by his father, and the more exciting yet morally bankrupt direction by a local mob boss. Somewhat Goodfellas derivative A Bronx Tale is still worth a watch if you can't find anything else on.
|3. Searching for Bobby Fischer|
Apr. 1st: Searching for Bobby Fischer somewhat parallels the real Bobby Fischer. The discovery of talent and what it can do to a person, especially when that person is so young. How to we balance ambition, achievement, and reality for someone so young?
|4. The Warriors|
Apr. 1st: It took a long while before films could have cult classics and it took until the internet age with cult classics could be shared and fans truly counted and connected. The Warriors is one of the original cult underground hits with style all to itself. Can you dig it?
