There should just be a 'New' and 'Expiring' section everywhere Netflix is. It is by far, in my opinion, the biggest hole in all of the Netflix service. But alas, if they added that, what would I be doing?
New To The Service:
The Hitchcock classic is a must see by movie aficionados and just casual watchers. Hitchcock is one of the best at building tension especially in mysteries and "whodunits" and this one is considered one of the best he has ever done. Add it to the Screened must watch list that I assume exists on some yellow legal pad somewhere and then watch it.
As a fan of any kung fu star or movie you must always come back to Bruce Lee's classic movie that transplanted a whole new genre from Hong Kong to US shores. Lee's career came along with it and so did a handful of what would eventually be cliches in all sorts of movies. Everything from the evil island, the kung fu tournament featuring fighters from across the world, to the yellow jumpsuit.
Screened's past ensures some cross over between an interest in video games and movies, and here is the pay off! A fascinating view into the horribly tough job it is to make an indie game and a look at the kind of person it takes to champion a game from conception to release. It is well made is every aspect and gives you the behind the scenes look that you rarely get in any industry.
It went away not too long ago and here it is again. An 80s classic marrying a future superstar in Tom Cruise and the more established Dustin Hoffman. Both do a great job as brothers coming from completely different worlds but having to spend time together. For those looking for something more along the lines of a touching drama this is a great one for you.
Like Goodfellas, A Bronx Tale follows a young kid growing up in a New York neighborhood run in part by the mob and the boy's struggle to stay in line with his catious father but the mod boss he respects so much. It's De Niro's first time directing and he does a fine job handling this project both in front of anf behind the camera. It isn't a perfect movie like Goodfellas tries to be, but it is no copy cat either.
Nothing! Well nothing I could spot that was worth mentioning.
If you spotted something big that did expire, or even something coming soon, add it in the comments!
