Some interesting new additions recently on Netflix:
The Cable Guy — How many movies have a scene at a Medieval Times restaurant? At least one, counting this film! Ben Stiller directs this ‘dark’ Jim Carrey flick.
Best In Show — One of my favorite movies, ever.
The Patriot — This is not a great movie, and Mel Gibson is not a great person. In fact, I’d say they’re both pretty terrible. But hey, people shooting muskets.
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape — See Johnny Depp before he was a pirate and Leonardo DiCaprio before he Incepted people. Title is a little misleading because I don’t think there are any grapes in the whole film.
Wild Wild West — When I worked at a movie theater in college, we could see movies for free, but this is one of the few, if only, movies I walked out on. It’s quite painful.
Play Misty for Me — Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut. It’s about pianos!
Cutthroat Island — The name of the island that the producers of this movie were sent to after it was released. Ba-dum, ching.
Fallen — Not a shabby paranormal thrama (thriller/drama) with Denzel Washington.
The Pianist — Really great (if not depressing) movie about the holocaust starring (Oscar-winner) Adrien Brody. Also about pianos.
Rocky — If you haven’t seen this yet, now is your chance! According to legend that I just made up, half the budget went to the scene where he punches meat.
Changing Lanes — Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck are mad at each other for some reason. No pianos (that I am aware of).
