Now Streaming: Olympus, Alien Invaders, Spies, Pirates, and Sharks, Sharks, SHARKS!

     Netflix just keeps getting better and better. Who needs television besides watching sports? With recent news that they will be bringing some of Marvel’s lesser known heroes to life on the small screen and the movies and TV shows that continue to be uploaded (I finally get to watch Dexter!), it’s hard to keep track of what’s good on the instant streaming website/app.

     So here are my top five recently uploaded movies on Netflix:

Olympus Has Fallen – Starring Aaron Eckhart, Gerard Butler, and Morgan Freeman, the film focuses on a disgraced Secret Service agent (Butler) who must come to the rescue when Korean terrorists descend on the White House and take the president (Eckhart) hostage.

The Host – Believe me, I’m not a fan of this novel adaptation. I refused to see it in theaters but this does count as a new movie on Netflix. Staring Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger, when an alien race implants a parasite soul named Wanderer into Melanie Stryder’s (Ronan) body, she resists the takeover and the two become reluctant allies in this romantic science-fiction movie.

Skyfall – The twenty-third film in the James Bond film series shows our favorite spy at his absolute best in the Daniel Craig commanded spy film.When a serious menace threatens MI6, James Bond (Craig) is on the case — putting aside his own life and personal issues to hunt and destroy the perpetrators.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl – This is the first film in Disney’s successful franchise and highly recommended as the best of the Pirates films. Starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and Geoffrey Rush, this swashbuckling film focuses on a young man (Bloom) recruits pirate Capt. Jack Sparrow to help rescue a maiden (Knightley) from rival buccaneers, he finds he’s up against supernatural forces.


Sharknado – I didn’t know whether or not to add this in or not since it premiered on Syfy Channel but it’s gained a cult following so I made an exception. This ridiculous film stars Tara Reid, and Ian Ziering. When a hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks are swept up in tornadoes and deposited all over the city, where they terrorize residents.


     Enjoy the movies!!!
