watching the whole series again -I never usually do that: most excellent
'The Devils Double' - about Uday Husseins body double.
'The Meat Train' - a killer lurks on the subway - much weirder than it sounds. Interesting cinematography, which is just as well because the hero is a photographer. Vinny Jones does his thing: Welsh hard man extraordinar
It's not my thread, but I don't see why not, since Netflix is so heavy on TV these days. That being said, I heartily recommend Flashpoint. Solid 5.
I know this is the best of Netflix, BUT I just watched what may be the worst movie of my life. "Air Collision" dated 2012. Over acted, over music'd, over CGI'd, almost constant screaming. I hardly watch movies, they're just background noise for my internet surfing. This one had me begging for the end.
A few I've watched recently:
Iron Sky: Very campy, but a great popcorn movie. I loved the dark humor and how they made fun of both sides.
My Way: Excellent WW2 drama, good action and a great story.
The Edge: Set after WW2 in Siberia, kinda slow to get started but worth the wait.
I've also started watching the miniseries The World Without End, based on the Ken Follett book. Much better than I had expected it to be, the characters are fantastic.
Just watched Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol.
My one word review: tedious.
How many close calls can you shoehorn into a movie? As many as they did with MI-GP, and the result is a tedious film just begging to end.
Ken Follet's World Without End
multi-episodes; it's got everything: love, lust, revenge, action, intrigue, and a Mother Superior who makes me weak in the knees. and for Cynthia Nixon fans its a reel (sic) treat.
not a big fan of the middle ages era, but i was hooked after the first ten minutes.
Clive Barker story, from his original Books of Blood.
Very, Very good story, film is great. (Ultra-Violent.)
Everyone is red inside,
Everyone is a Book of Blood.
Weird I can not find the tittle in my netflix, what gives..?
The Midnight Meat Train
Sadly is only available on DVD
Guns, Girls and Gambling
Christian Slater tells a pretty good story in this one.
Midget Elvis, Asian Elvis, Gay Elvis, The Rancher, The Chief, The Cowboy, The Blond Assassin and the Girl Next Door... All have roles to play.
I tried to watch that on 2 seperate occasions but the Panasonic Plasma and ROKU lock up and shut the TV down.
It only happens with this movie. I get the power LED flashing 12 times.......WTF I end up unplugging the TV to reset......
That was a super good movie.
I either use my Sony laptop hooked to the tv with an HDMI or my PS3 for Netflix.
No issue with either one on this film.
But there are many that will lock up in the middle of the movie.
Maybe already mentioned, but my wife and I watched Machine Gun Preacher on Saturday. It's an extremely powerful and moving film that tells the true story of a "tough guy biker" who makes it his life's mission to rescue children in Sudan from rebel war kidnappers. I bawled like a little bitch for like half of the movie. 4.5 stars...

Based on true story.
Last Weekend I watched <B>Snatch</B> and loved it. I think I remember when it came out people dissed it and acted like Richie only got it released because of his relationship with Madonna.
I loved it. I loved it so much I watched it twice. It was similar to "2 Smoking Barrels" but much more refined.
This weekend I took a chance on <B>Revolver</B>.
The first half was promising then it fell apart. I was absolutely insulted by the end. It was the single most pretentious piece of crap movie I have ever suffered through. The climax of the movie is Jason Statham alone in an elevator screaming the same thing over and over for literally 5 minutes. After that the director feels that you are not worthy of his story so he reveals a plot twist Hellen Keller could see coming from beyond the grave then dissolves the story completely and just repeats other parts from the first half.
On top of that it stars Big Pussy and Andre 3000.
I can't believe they gave Richie the Sherlock Holmes movies after that. I wouldn't let him videotape my step-daughter's wedding.
Snatch was still great though.
Is not on Netflix but I bet you will like The Boondock Saints
