Thread: Good finds on Netflix

  1. #31
    I liked Sherlock, but my wife couldn't stay awake. Just finished Foyle's War and really enjoyed it. Now starting Damages. Glenn Close still scares me from the movie with Michael Douglas and is it my imagination but does she sometimes look a little like Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire?

    Foyle's War is a great show. Sherlock is as well. I need to give Downton another try. BBC does good work.

    The IT Crowd. I love that show. Too few episodes. We'll watch them over and over again from time to time. "Work Outing" is by far my favorite episode. Not real high-brow humor, but good British comedy.

    Derek. This is a new one by Ricky Gervais. He plays an autistic guy at a retirement home. Karl Pilkington is in it as the maintenance man with totally wicked "Child Molester" hair. This is really well done. Funny, social commentary, and a lot of really touching moments. Highly recommend. There are a few F,S, and C bombs here and there, but not many (2 per show, maybe?). So, buyer beware.

    Come Fly with Me: British mocumentary about the airline business with Matt Lucas and David Walliams playing all the roles (both male and female). Loved it.

    This looks like an interesting collection. Probably not on Netflix, but maybe at the library.

    Spotlight on Americana

    Movies have been vividly recording the goings-on in the good ol' USA for the past hundred some-odd years, dutifully documenting our nation's history for posterity. In honor of the anniversary of the United State's independence, we've dug through the Fandor library to find some really special examples of Americana of the cinematic variety. Whether saluting icons like Rose the Riveter and Elvis or celebrating the country's vast, beautiful landscape, each of these films capture a particular quality, facet or theme that is distinctly American.

    I watched Bernie starting Jack Black. Terrific show. He's a good guy everyone in his small Texas town loves. Funeral Director who gets involved with an older wealthy woman. Ends up killing her when she becomes needy/demanding. Then trial for conviction becomes difficult because folks love him so much. Entertaining dark comedy.

    Saw it a while back. Good show.

    I just watched "The Little Prince" on Netflix over the weekend. It is an animated film based on the French book "Le Petit Prince". Excellent. Highly recommend it.

    So I said to David Eckstein, "You promised me, Eckstein, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life, there have only been one set of prints in the sand. Why, when I have needed you most, have you not been there for me?" David Eckstein replied, "Because my little legs had gotten tired, and you were carrying me." And I looked down and saw that I was still carrying David Eckstein.

    Watching a Netflix original called Fauda. It is a drama about Israelis and Palestinians. Very good.

    Michael Bolton's Big Sexy Valentines Day Special. It must be watched with a loved one.

    I recently began DamNation, a Patagonia produced documentary on the effects on the land and rivers and wildlife of the numerous dams in our nation.

    We've become hooked on this one.

    The dialogue is almost all in Norwegian, but once you get used to the subtitles (doesn't take long) it's great stuff and a different cultural look at modern warfare and international relations.

    Dope was fantastic. Great movie.
    Fundamentals of Caring was really good as well. Selena Gomez was great, Paul Rudd was great as well.
    Tucker & Dale is probably the best horror film ever made. HUGE twist/different than you'd expect, funny, just FANTASTIC.
    Creep - *shudders* Freaking creepy. I jumped many a time. Maybe even peed a little.

    One that wasn't on his list that was incredible as well: Housebound. A New Zealand movie, funny, scary, nice twist. Great movie.

    Fundamentals of Caring was written by a local author. I read that a few years ago and loved the book. The movie was very good as well.

    I'll have to look that book up. Thank you.

    Good finds on Netflix

    "The Heavy Water War." A historically accurate dramatization of the Nazi effort to develop an atomic bomb. Set in Norway where it happened. Great story of true bravery and espionage. Highly recommended. (It is in English, Norwegian and German, and subtitled; but so beautifully shot you don't notice.)

    Good finds on Netflix

    "The Worricker Trilogy." Very well-done series about a quirky but likable British MI5 agent. Bill Nighy stars. It's a conspiracy thriller, very British and you need to pay attention to details. Who the good guys and bad guys are is not always clear cut. First-rate cast. Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis, Rupert Graves, Wynona Rider, Christopher Walken, Rachel Weiss, many others.

    I watched this about a year ago. Loved it. Great cast. Smartly written.
