Apologies for the delay in putting out this new volume. I've noticed(as you all probably have) that Netflix is now putting less new stuff up on Instant Watch lately. This trend disturbs me just a bit with the September 1st plan switch date rapidly approaching. I do hope they will get back to putting more films and TV on with more regularity, but only time will tell. Nonetheless there are some good films and some junk films(or worse) for you all to enjoy. First, the good. This group includes things like Tim Hunter's RIVER'S EDGE, the Steve Tesich(BREAKING AWAY) scribed EYEWITNESS, DRESSED TO KILL, THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS, MARRIED TO THE MOB, MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY, HOTEL NEW HAMPSHIRE, The Phil Ochs Doc, DEAD END, WINTER'S BONE, THE MUMMY and maybe STREETS OF FIRE(though many might put that in the junk category). The junk includes the likes of STAYIN' ALIVE, THE MANSTER, STRANGE DAYS, DIE HARD 2(and UNDER SIEGE 2), THE SECRET OF MY SUCCESS and the glorious Linda Blair trifecta of ROLLER BOOGIE, THE EXORCIST 2 and HELL NIGHT. If you're looking for a quick pick me up, the opening scenes of ROLLER BOOGIE alone should make you smile. My favorite moment comes when a couple who has chosen to make out on top of a dumpster, jumps down from said perch to join a roller skating conga line. If Linda Blair's not your thing then perhaps a nice double of Don Adams with THE NUDE BOMB and GET SMART AGAIN? And of course there are always Seagal options. Also this week there is a special section of sub-junk type films and that umbrella covers things like BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR and FRED: THE MOVIE(both indescribably bad in their own ways, BIRDEMIC being much more entertaining).
This site is all about keeping older films in the public consciousness via lists and short reviews. I am the maker of lists and the curator of countless others from a great group of regular contributors. Check back regularly!
