I know it’s been a while since I’ve written a post about Netflix but when you have a full-time job, it’s difficult to keep up with movie streaming but I’m back at it and I think this company just keeps getting better! With television shows like House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, and Hemlock Grove added in with the movies that are added to their expanding library, Netflix is definitely a hobby now for binge watching movies when you are home alone.
If you are tired of watching the same movies over and over again or your list needs to be refreshed with fresh flicks, I’m going to present some films for you to watch whether to pass the time or something you have waiting for Netflix to have in order to watch it.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation : Starring Channing Tatum, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Bruce Willis, this sequel finds the Joes are on their own when the U.S. Government, controlled by COBRA, frames the heroes as traitors against the country. The Joes then go on the offensive to clear their name and save the world once again.
Amistad : Steven Spielberg directs the unforgettable classic that tells the story based on the mutiny in 1839 by newly captured slaves who took control of the ship, La Amistad, off the coast of Cuba. After being captured by a U.S. revenue cutter, they are brought to America and sparks an international legal battle that later became a United States Supreme Court case of 1841.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon : This international classic is hailed as one of the greatest and most influential foreign language films in the United States. Two warriors (Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh) are in pursuit of a stolen sword and a fugitive. Their journey leads them to physically skilled adolescent nobleman’s daughter. I highly recommend this film for fans, both new and old, of martial arts films.
The Silence of the Lambs: This 1991 classic thriller stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins as the sadistic and eccentric Hannibal Lecter. In this film, A young Foster plays FBI trainee, Clarice Starling, who seeks the advice of the imprisoned Dr. Lecter (Hopkins) in order to stop another serial killer, known as “Buffalo Bill”.
The Family: Starring Robert De Nero, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones, this action comedy film pokes fun at the seriousness of being in a mob family. De Nero and Pfeiffer play the parents who has their family under the witness protection program and must change their lives but that is easier said than done.
I hope you all enjoy these movies. If anyone has any other suggestions, please pass them on! Enjoy the Netflix binge watching!
