Netflix is pretty awesome, but they aren't awesome about what amazing stuff is coming onto their streaming service, and what classics are going away. Luckily for you, you have me! Welcome 'New To Netflix'!
New To The Service:
From the creators of South Park comes an entire movie with marionette puppets. These puppets are a part of an elite counter terrorism charged with protecting the greatest country ever, America. Packed with the usual wit and humor of a South Park episode, Team America is a comedy classic and if you're into anything funny, this one is for you.
You could argue which Mission: Impossible sequel is the best, but you can't argue which movie was the best because this is it. Based on the television show, Mission: Impossible mixes spy action/thriller with a dose of something that makes it all feel realistic. This movie feels like none of it's future installments in the best way possible. Red light, green light.
Eddy Murphy is his own buddy in this buddy cop movie. Both a good cop story and a good comedy this classic is more ScreenedPup essentially movie watching. If you want to get all those "banana in the tailpipe" jokes, watch this movie. Don't question yourself, just go watch it.
Remember Mel Gibson before the crazy? Those were the days. He could do no wrong. He could even pretend to be a famous Scottish hero and give one of the greatest speeches in movie history. All in one movie! So if you're down for fake accents, kilts, and a pretty good movie then give this a watch.
Unlike Battleship, a board game into a movie at one time didn't induce cringes or cursing. That's thanks to Clue, the 1985 perfection on film. Just like the board game you have a group of diverse people converging in one house and then there is a murder! Now they all must solve the murder together since none of them can be trusted alone. When the film originally went to theaters, and depending on your region, you got different endings even.
Nothing can last forever and the same goes for Netflix titles. This week I could only spot one worth mentioning.
An American Werewolf in London: September 9th
Horror and comedy rarely goes together but John Landis sure knows how to make a movie. After surviving a wolf attack that killed his friend a man discovers that he's a werewolf and the main one at that. Unfortunately there is no wolf playing basketball scene, but this comedy is worth your time so give it a watch before Sunday.
I missed this one by a day last week and thankfully a user pointed it out. This documentary talks about Jiro, a dedicated and wonderful sushi chef, and his 10 seat restaurant in a subway station. Jiro does nothing but make sushi constantly and even as he ages his goal is to become perfect. A great human tale and a movie you shouldn't watch on an empty stomach.
If you have any new titles you've noticed go up on Netflix instant recently that you'd like to recommend feel free to add on! I'll try to do more of these whenever I notice some big titles going up on the service.
