I did this on the facebooks for awhile, with some good results.
I think it might work better here.
You tell me what is good on netflix.
I tell you what is good on netflix.
Everyone tells everyone what is good on netflix and we all win.

So here goes. I just finished American Horror Story. It's pretty dope.

Lost is INSANELY dope.

End of Watch is one of the best movies ive ever seen.

Snow on Da Bluff is fucking mindblowing.

I didnt see a netfling thread. But if there is already such a thing, point me to it.

My hair stylist was raving about Orange is the New Black, so I added streaming (again, I didn't like Netflix streaming much before). Gonna check it out.

I've been ODing on documentaries lately.

- The Art of the Steal (about the controversy surrounding the Barnes collection of paintings)
- Head Games (about sports-associated brain injuries)
- Moving Midway (about moving a plantation)
- Up for Grabs (Barry Bonds' ball lawsuit)
- Stolen (about the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum robbery)
- Amazing Shadows (about the National Film Registry)
- Birders (about Central Park bird watchers)

And Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

I liked

Sherlock,
Copper - only has the first season
Fringe
Burn Notice
Being Human (the BBC version) - thought the premise was kind of weird but I got into it.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi - an amazing documentary about the best sushi chef in Japan.
Russia's Toughest Prisons was pretty interesting
Numbers (a show about an FBI agent whose mathematics professor brother uses math to help them solve cases)

Maybe I will give Orange is the New Black a little more of a chance - I kind of lost patience in the first episode but since so many say they liked it I will give it a little more time.

Orange is the new black is awesome but it kinda had to grow on me.
What's cool about this is what you guys are listing, i havent watched.
so...hell yes, and thank you for the suggestions.

I'm a doc nut too...i kinda lean towards the political.

Ethos, Patriocracy...those are the only two i can think of off the top of my head. oh, and Selling God is a fucking riot.
Conversely, Who Was Jesus is pretty damned interesting.

If you like docs, and you haven't checked out Ken Burns. He's one of the best documentarians of our time, i think. He has a newish on called The Dust Bowl (which may interest me extra because i live in the texas part of the dust bowl,) and also a pretty hot one about Prohibition.

There's also a sprawling one called The West...and the weirdest thing....his docs are SOOOO relaxing...i don't understand why they are so soothing but the just are.

I'll check out y'alls picks, and come with a better list later.

Oh. and Lost, Lost, Lost.

It's decent. Nothing special. Granted, I haven't finished the season, but that's my impression so far. It definitely feels like a TV show, which is a downside. Maybe I've been spoiled by shows like Breaking Bad and Deadwood that feel more like films, but I don't have a lot of patience for things that feel glossy and TV show like. But yeah, it's ok so far. I may or may not finish the season at some point.

Well its comedic/ takes place on a few closed sets for the most part. Its not exactly supposed to be a slick drama, but I see how some people wouldn't like it.

Once you get invested in the side characters and their backstory you sort of forget the show is about Piper. It's cool. The creator/head writer even said Piper was her trojan horse to tell stories of women she was actually interested in LOL.

The Road was fucking awesome...post apocalyptic story, but to me it had lots of very deep biblical symbolism. And i dont mean after school special symbolism, i mean the cool kind that's hard to spot, that's barely there. And Viggo Mortenson would make a PERFECT roland deschain for the dark tower (if that happens in our lifetimes.)
i heard it's happening "soon..." in 2010.

Say i saw a really good movie today called Dead Man's Shoes.
It's one of those "justifiable wrath" type movies with a lone vigilante doling out the serious punishment to a group of people who hurt someone close to him.
Old story, but this one's REALLY worth watching if you like a taut thriller.

Also, once you're done watching Firefly (and rewatching Serenity [b/c you need to]), check out Done the Impossible. It's a documentary about how Firefly fans got Universal to green-light the movie after the show was cancelled.

Netfllix is good to an extent. Vudu picks up where they leave off. Vudu is my preferred Streaming service. I personally hate having a big pile of physical media. Ultraviolet and Vudu allow me to keep my collection online and stream from my PS3 or Xbox 360. Free service, I just have to buy the moves, and since I can have my ultraviolet locker linked to my vudu I have no need to pay a monthly subscription. Plus Vudu has movies up to a month before the release date(Star Trek Into Darkness etc.). Once you have a code and redeem a movie, you own it forever.

The only reason I have not canceled my Netflix subscription yet is because I have not yet finished Arrested Development.

To you folks who use this and enjoy streaming, check out Vudu. Excellent alternative. And if you want movie codes, you know where to find me :)

well i haven't kept this thread rolling, but i saw something that i really wanted to share.
It's a biopic about JD Salinger, and i believe it's just called Salinger.
He is a fucking ENIGMA like no one else. He hasn't published since 1965, has only done like one or two interviews since writing The Catcher in the Rye, but i guess the crazy fucker has been WRITING this whole time. he died in 2010 and he has shit scheduled to be released in in 2015 and 2020.
If you ever read catcher in the rye and or franny and zooey, this shit will blow your mind.

I also saw a great one about Levon Helms of The Band...i believe it was called "Ain't in it for my Health." it was very endearing to see this guy still playing shows and smoking kush in his seventies.

So what's up, y'all, what have you seen that's good? Let me know. im fucking BORED.

I've been working my way through Deep Space Nine. As a casual Trekkie, I haven't watched it much beforehand, but I'm really digging it. Its different than the other shows, more morally grey, and probably had a bit of influence on some other great scifi shows that came after such as Battlestar and Firefly. I can also see some of the Cardassian design influence in stuff like Halo.

It wasn't until I started reading the plot summary that I realized I had just seen that a couple months ago...and didn't find it funny. I seem to recall one or two of the sketches being somewhat humorous, but the rest just seemed to be "hey, we can be inappropriate and everyone will automatically laugh" kind of humor.

so we just watched a flick called 'the joneses" (david duchovny and demi moore)...first off, yes i watched this because david duchovny starred. yes. i. did.
but...it wasn't a bad movie at all.
the only thing that fucks me off is that the consumer gets off the hook in the storyline.
where in the hellz did personal responsibility go? no matter what context we are referring to, it seems to be dead in the modern world.
ugh.

I like Luther.

Luther is great. The character is so dark, but I always end up rooting for him. There's a third season which (I think) is the last. but it's not been put on Netflix yet.

There's a load of great recommendations in this thread, but hardly any of them are available to watch the UK. I don't quite understand why the US have so many more serials of 'classic' Doctor Who than we do, considering we made it. [/grumble]

I have to recommend "A Late Quartet" on Netflix. It stars the late Philip Seymour Hoffman (in a typically excellent performance), Catherine Keener, and Christopher Walken. I didn't even know it existed until my friend recommended it to me a week or two ago. Very enjoyable and very well acted.


"The Hunt" (starring Mads Mikkelsen) was also added recently which I've been meaning to see for a while and can't wait to watch - t'was nominated for an Oscar this year. Gonna have to set aside 3 hours to eventually absorb "Blue is the Warmest Color" too. Malick's "To The Wonder" was added as well which I haven't seen in months and I'm looking forward to seeing again. It's narratively abstract as usual but I found it deeply moving. Nobody does it like Malick.

Not only am i an NIN geek, i'm a rush geek too. Somebody finally did them justice...there is a Rush documentary on Netflix now.
And i'm sure this was mentioned in NIN spotting, but the very first person talking about rush in the documentary is good old Trent.
It made me feel a little less geeky to hear trent, billy corgan, vinnie paul, les claypool, etc...talking about how bad ass rush is.
If you have a little, or a lot, of rush geek in you, you will LOVE this shit.

Also, Carlos (the miniseries) is fucking AWESOME. It's about a militant leftist, and it kind of reminds me of dexter in that i found myself rooting for the terrorist anti-hero.

Dirty Wars is pretty fucking shocking...it's about drone strikes and pretty much illegal covert ops the US carries out. Watching it timed with the headline about reducing the size of the conventional military was eye-opening.

And Lillyhammer is the shit. It might as well be a sopranos spinoff...but it's really funny.

Update: "The Hunt" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieLIOBkMgAQ) is superb. Essential viewing if you're a Mads Mikkelsen fan.

I loved how balanced and realistic it felt: for a movie about a well-meaning guy who has to deal with an entire town (including his best friend) turning on him, the main character still had people fighting for him, but not at the expense of diminished drama. In lesser hands, it easily could have turned into EVERYBODY turning against this guy. Aside from the emotional toll, there was also enough direct conflict to keep things interesting and propulsive for the film's duration. Highly recommended.

orestes, why Blue is the Warmest Color?

I just watched a show called Power and Terror: Noam Chomsky in Our Times.
It was really awesome for a leftist like me. Noam believes that the US is the biggest terrorist organization in the world, and i tend to agree.

Lovely Molly was pretty good for a horror movie.

Same goes for House of the Devil, which had a great 1980s period vibe to it.

I just posted this in the Documentaries thread, and i thought i would post it here too.
The Impostor was fucking riveting.

The Big Fix is great too...it's about the BP oil spill. I suspected some fucked up things were going on in this case, and this doc exposes those things. My fears, and worse, are true.

Blackfish is great too..it's about how at seaworld, the people have abused the animals and the animals have gored and eaten the people all along.

Oh yeah, Smash and Grab is a trip...it's about an international ring of diamond thieves...and what's great about this one is that many of the interviews are with group members who have yet to be caught! Their voices and faces are hidden.

Y'all, i want this thread to be the place we come to decide what to watch on netflix.

Last night, I showed my mom 2 of my favorite movies: The Messenger (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tTIQ8pkGf0) and My Left Foot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ellpw_5t84) - both of which she liked. :)

The Messenger features what's easily one of Woody Harrelson's finest performances (Oscar nominated) -- one of Ben Foster's too. If you're a fan of either of those actors and haven't seen this movie, you need to. The whole concept of following 2 Casualty Notification Officers is absolutely fascinating to me, and it's remarkably well executed.

My Left Foot is a great story as it is, but Daniel Day-Lewis's performance is completely next-level and essential. Between his posture/body language, his accent, and his emotional intensity, it's amazing how high a level he's operating at in each of these categories simultaneously.

Blue Is The Warmest Color has just been added to instant watch.
I watched that movie a while back, and although I didn't hate it, I'm really not sure why it's being talked about as such a big deal. It seemed rather uneventful and plain to me. Is it just because it involves a female, female relationship, or was it the raunchy sex scenes (which didn't add at all to the story)? Don't get me wrong, they were enjoyable to look at, but the whole thing kinda felt like, "Okay. And?" to me.

In fact, now that I think about that movie a little more, it's pretty insulting to the viewer. It does a great job of assuming you're too stupid to get it, and proceeds to beat you over the head with the same information again and again. It's three hours, most of it banal and repetitive, that could have easily been done in an hour and a half.

orestes

One exceptional documentary I highly suggest watching is: The House I Live In. It features an interview with David Simon from the creator of The Wire (Which is my favorite show ever created).


Why We Fight director Eugene Jarecki shifts his focus from the military industrial complex to the War on Drugs in this documentary exploring the risks that prohibition poses to freedom, and the tragedy of addicts being treated as criminals. In the four decades since the War on Drugs commenced, over 45 millions of addicts have been arrested - and for each one jailed, another family is destroyed. Meanwhile, the prisons in America are growing overcrowded with non-violent criminals, and illegal drugs are still being sold in schoolyards. By examining just where it all went wrong, Jarecki reveals that a solution is possible if we can just find it in ourselves to be compassionate, and see past the decades of paranoia and propaganda. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Impostor is a great, CRAZY doc.
Tabloid is a damn good one.
Sons of Perdition was so absorbing that i didn't want for it to be over: it's about people trying to escape Warren Jeff's Mormon splinter cult.
Talhotblond was another great, off the wall doc.
Eyes of the Mothman is an extremely engaging doc about the titular phenomenon...it's REALLY long and i didn't even realize 2.5 hours had gone by.
The Woman Who Wasn't There is a fucking TRIP...about the woman who claimed to be a 9/11 survivor but wasn't!
Fall From Grace is about the Westboro Baptist Church...you know, the sick fucks who picket with the God Hates Fags and God Loves Dead Soldiers because the military enable fags or whatever? It's a stunning look at these BIZARRE people who have boiled the Bible down to three words (god hates fags.) My favorite sign they hold up says "God Hates YOU!" LOL! These fucks make me embarrassed to admit to being a christian!
A great way to follow this up is with Kevin Smith's Red State: The plot of which is basically what if these fuckers turned violent?
For MORE fun, watch Kevin Smith Burn in Hell, aQ and A he did after a red state screening, which is HILARIOUS.If i haven't mentioned it before, DEXTER, DEXTER, DEXTER!!!!

I watched The Bay a couple of nights ago without too many expectations. It held my interest, that's about all I think it had going for it.

Also finally started watching Breaking Bad. I like it but have yet to fall in love with it.

As for Antichrist, yes I've seen it twice. I'm not saying it was bad but twice is the maximum number of times I'm willing to experience it. Hmmm, does that actually mean it's bad?

I haven't had as much time to watch lately, but I got Captain Phillips on DVD (I don't know if you have a DVD plan), and then A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas (can't help it - I love those guys!), I watched The Following with Kevin Bacon - it was kind of creepy but good enough to hold my interest. Can't remember if I mentioned A Killing. That was a good murder series set in Seattle.

Thanks for the recommendation on Antichrist.

Yeah, I have no real desire to watch a simulated sex scene between two women for twenty minutes. Tis why I watch porn. ;) But I have to wonder if this movie would have all the buzz if it was about two young men?
I don't know the answer to that, but it's a good question. We're going to have to go through all kinds of novelty-homo stuff in popular culture now, aren't we? And people are going to say it's good just because of the homo-ness of it, aren't they? Pragmatically, it's probably a necessary step towards equality, but I don't look forward to art that's over-hyped based on the orientations of the subjects involved. One thing I do know is that this movie would have zero hype if it were about a straight couple.

It's pretty all over the place, the stuff I've watched lately. Let's see...

- Grabbers - Aliens and very drunk Irish people (I thought this was funny as all fuck but that might have been b/c of the whiskey)
- The People vs. George Lucas - Fans against Lucas' film tweakage (awesome)
- Kevin Hart: Grown Little Man - HILARIOUS stand-up
- The Great Happiness Space (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0493420/) - Wow. Just... Wow.
- BtVS and Angel rewatch
- Booker's Place - About a black man who worked in a whites-only restaurant (really great)
- Room 237 - Theories behind "The Shining" (this one bugged me; the soundtrack really did the film a disservice.)
- Ghost Bird - What happens when a woodpecker thought to be extinct since the 20s is sighted again in Arkansas? (LOVED it.)
- Objectified - Things, the people who design them and how they influence us every day. (awesome)
- An Affair of the Heart - Rick Springfield fanbois/girls. Pretty freaky. Apparently, there's a Rick Springfield cruise every year.
- They Call It Myanmar - About life in the second-most isolated country on the planet, which has been rule by dictatorship for almost 50 years. (fantastic)
- What Maise Knew - About Courtney Love's horrible parenting skills. ;) Only watched it b/c of Alexander Skarsgard.
- The Kids Are Alright - Lesbian couple's children decide to track down their sperm donor. (really liked it.)

I always have something playing in the background while I work. Helps me concentrate.

Glad you watched it and liked it! I see where you're coming from for sure. lt gets almost defiantly ambiguous towards the end, and the characters are seemingly wandering through most of the film (which happens to be appropriate), but at least for me, it's all forgivable due to how good Foster and Harrelson are together.

Lew, i watched melancholia a year or two ago, and i really got a kick out of it. It's almost insufferably slow, but i loved the meaning (or my perceived meaning) of it...that people who are depressed are better at handling crises.

Everybody, there is a new movie called Mr. Nobody. I highly recommend it. It falls into the "head-scratcher" category, but it's damn good. Without giving too much away, it's kind of about string theory and alternate dimensions and timelines and such.

Have i mentioned Berberian Sound Studio?
It was DAMN good...ultra-creative David Lynch style head scratching pseudo horror movie.

Post Tenebras Lux is pretty much in the same style. I liked it a LITTLE less because it was less cohesive. It has scene after scene of "what in the HELL just happened, or "who in the fuck was THAT character, and how was he able to rip his own fucking head off! (lolz, i'm not gonna tell you if that's LITERALLY what happened...don't wanna ruin it for you.)

Beyond The Black Rainbow had some head scratching elements as well, but was more cohesive than the other two, and gains MASSIVE cool points from me because it is the...how do i say it...it was the single most "eighties retro" film i've ever seen.
From dialogue to effects, music to the actual FILM the cameras use, it just SCREAMED late seventies-early eighties. And it was pretty damn creepy too. I reccomend it for sure.

i wanna know if there are ANY good horror movies on netflix...

Not sure if it still is but for a very long time the Lars Von Trier film Antichrist was available streaming, and some people really don't carry for it but for me it was one of the most impacting and effective horror movies I've seen in quite a while.

This is maybe more divisive but The Blair Witch Project is on there now, and it's worth seeing at least once at least for nothing else because of the influence it had and how important it was. I actually enjoy it, but different tastes and all that.

The Cabin In the Woods is an excellent anti-horror film if that makes any sense. Just watch it, if you make it through the beginning it becomes fantastic.

I really enjoyed Red State; then again I really like Kevin Smith and found it amazing to see the guy who made Dogma making a movie like Red State.

Let the Right One In is my favorite vampire movie by far.

That said a lot of those are up to personal taste, and also I just looked through their horror category for the first time in ages and holy shit did they have an influx of straight-to-DVD or what?

kleiner352, this is me from February


Antichrist is honestly the most fucked up thing i have ever seen. i mean REALLY. i dont get disturbed easily.
And it's not a horror movie...more of an art film.
Watch it at your own risk, but i thought it was amazing.
Insanely disturbing, but SO smart too.
I go for the disturbing and the artsy fartsy, so it was definitely my cup of tea.

i think i posted a few more times trying to get people to watch Antichrist in this thread.
As fucked off as it was, i can't exactly call it a horror movie. I guess that's because i see it as an "art" film, (for whatever that means...) and "art" generally transcends the horror genre.
I'm not sure i'm using the right words here, but i think if you watched and dug it, you will kinda know what i mean.

So without giving away too much, what do you think was the deeper meaning of Antichrist. I think it was about how humanity is inherently wicked.

Well, Lorien won on netflix today. I chose "Frozen Ground," i think it was called, with Nicholas Cage and John Cusack, and believe it or not, it was pretty half ass! It was one of those "thrillers" in which the only "thrilling" parts were viscerally uncomfortable rape and torture scenes. IDK, maybe i was just in a bad mood.

She picked one called Black Butterflies that was really bad ass, about a the life of a great free spirited South African poet who was quoted in a speech by Mandela. I recommend that one.

She has been watching all these Jane Austen flicks, and judging by her rapt attention, i think they must be good (if you're in to that kind of thing, she adores the books.)

it's hard to keep track of what's still on Netflix. They're always changing it up.

But I love horror movies, especially haunted house movies (not entirely sure why). Here's some of my favorites. Though some are a bit schlocky, I still like em.

Carrie - One of my favorite horror movies. Maybe it's not going to make you jump out of your seat, and some of the relief humor hasn't aged well, but it's just great. If you love horror movies and haven't seen Carrie, you need to.

The Inkeepers - A great modern haunted house movie that actually gets it right. Slow burn, definitely, but it's effective.

Grave Encounters - avoid the terrible sequel, this is an actually tense, captivating, and fun horror film. But seriously, don't watch the sequel. It actually screwed up my appreciation for the first movie a bit. I wish I could unsee it. Hard to believe it's made by the same people.

Cabin in the Woods - more campy comedy/satire horror than "real" horror, but I thought it was really entertaining... and I'm not sure if people who don't like horror movies would really like it much. So, I'd recommend it to someone looking for a good horror movie, because even if it's not exactly that, it's made for people like you.

Nosferatu - You've probably seen it, but if not and you're in the mood for something that goes beyond genre-defining or classic, and right into iconic territory...

Candyman - I actually think it's deeper than it seems, and if you let it get under your skin it's really creepy. Also, great score by Phillip Glass.

V/H/S/ 2 - better than the first. Some of the segments are authentically chilling and disturbing. This one actually does manage to pull off the vignette found footage thing properly, with only a couple dull misfires.

Maniac - Worth it for the soundtrack alone, and some really unsettling segments. Not perfect by any stretch, but if you're looking for a chilling, disconcerting serial killer horror movie punctuated with some shocking and disturbing moments, this does the trick. But really, the soundtrack is awesome.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer - on the other hand, if you want a serial killer movie that will really fuck with your head and genuinely freak you out, there's this. It's a good movie, but I'm hesitant to recommend it too cavalierly. This movie can really upset you.

The Host - good (if a bit overrated at the time) Korean monster movie.

The Re-Animater - Brutal, quirky, and defined by a really unique sense of campy humor that still manages to build to a point that will leave an impact.

Scream - the original movie is still good. Awful sequels, and it was unfortunately the inspiration for a slew of lame vanilla teen slashers with no balls, but the original is still good, despite the weak final reveal. Still, you've probably already seen it.

Ju-On (the grudge) - the Japanese version is much more effective than the American remake. If you haven't seen a Japanese haunting/ghost movie, this is a good place to start.



Hellraiser - I still think the movie failed to translate the really profound nature of the novella (really, it's a great parable about guilt, jealousy, and how we ultimately allow these emotions to punish ourselves to achieve what we perceive to be some vague notion of satisfaction), it's still classic. Also, Pinhead is one of the greatest screen movie monsters.

Night of the Living Dead - easily one of the most essential horror films ever.

Day of the Dead - seriously underrated (and incredibly gross) sequel to Night of the Living Dead. Some of the most genuinely upsetting zombie violence ever, and if you're into extreme, elaborate gore makeup effects, this delivers

Let the Right One In - not a traditional horror movie... more of a genuinely moving drama involving vampires. You have to be in the right mood for it, but if you are, it's incredible.

Hellraiser II - Not as good as the first film, but the gore effects have aged better, and it takes a refreshing dark-fantasy spin on the concept of the original.

House on Haunted Hill - A campy, William Castle movie starring Vincent Price, and one of the most memorable. It's cheesy, ridiculous, and loaded with unintentional humorous moments. The intent is endearing, and the movie is really fun. Still, there's a reason MST3K has parodied it.

Legend of Hell House - a little rough around the edges, but I love haunted house movies, and this one is edgier than most.

Mimic - not great sci-fi monster horror, but at least it has teeth.

Existenz - not sure why Netflix has this listed in the horror section, but it's maybe Cronenberg's most underrated movie. Psychological mindfuck greatness.

11/11/11 - One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Just awful in every way. A terrible, pathetic rip off pastiche of Rosemary's Baby and The Omen. Also, one of the most hilarious movies I've ever seen. The same hack production company later released a sequel 12/12/12. I think I might check that out now...

There's also a ton of great schlocky grindhouse stuff floating around on Netflix. You can usually tell what's worth checking out if you're in that mood from the cover art.

elevenism : I realize we might be de-railing things a bit here, but I initially was so overwhelmed by Antichrist that I found it really hard to even bother thinking about what it meant, and instead just took it as an experience and then rewatched it to sort more out. I definitely agree on the wickedness of mankind, and most of all I think beyond mankind it deals with the chaos of nature (hence "Chaos Reigns" coming from an animal, etc.), and something that I find really amazing is that unlike so many other films, where nature is shown as this serenely beautiful place, instead it's made into a nightmare of sorts. The trees ripple, there's the acorns raining down at one point, and the wife's struggle to even walk across a path all really heighten that sense of imposing fear coming from just the world around them. I think the man in the film keeps trying to find order in the chaos, but what the woman shows is that there isn't any, and that mankind is still a part of nature no matter how much we distance ourselves from it, and because of that there's always going to be that inherent chaos brought forth by ourselves. I mean, the wife seems antagonistic, but at the same time if anything she's really just embracing the world around her, and when things start . . . happening, does the natural world seem against it at all? No; even the birds start embracing it and in a way allowing it.

I definitely think there is so much beneath the surface of that film, and I myself still have had a hard time figuring out everything that I'd like to know (I know it's often been labelled as a sexist film, but at the same time it's also anti-psychiatry, etc., and I mean really, I think to say it's outwardly speaking against women is a bit of a leap to make, especially considering how many of von Trier's films center on women).

I definitely call it a horror movie because the first thing it really does is scare you, but I definitely agree about it being an art film, but then again I think that's what makes it such a good horror film to me; it doesn't treat horror as a shameful genre to be, instead it embraces it and uses it to show how much can be done with the subject of fear and malice and just the general negativity that horror focuses more on than any other genre. It actually reminds me a lot of the original Silent Hill games in terms of how much is built on psychological effects, not physical ones; the violence in it is incredibly brutal, but it's so minimal. It's the things that lead into it that make it so impacting.

thank you for the insights, kleiner352.
I certainly didn't see it as misogynistic, as we are all born of women even if we aren't women ourselves.
but i hadn't thought about the nature symbolism, and the meaning of nature's
"reaction."
Good call.

Thank you so much for the list, Jinsai !
i've seen about half of those. I haven't seen Re-Animator, Grave Encounters, Legend of Hell House, Henry, Existenz, or 11/11/11.

I agree with you that Hellraiser is a great movie, and i think both it and the second one have stood the test of time.
As far as living up to the source material, the Hellbound Heart is the nastiest, most disturbing, deliciously depraved little book i've ever read. The way it's written, however...it just doesn't exactly lend itself to the screen.

Have you seen the version of Nosferatu with Type O music for the soundtrack? I saw it on an old, passed around vhs tape, and good god it was awesome.

If you liked the inkeepers, there's another one by the same director called The House of the Devil. It's another slow burner. One thing i dig about it is that it's an 1980s period piece.

I saw one called Absentia for the second time last night, and i actually thought it was pretty damned good.

Oh, and Ju-On...i've seen several asian horror flicks, but haven't caught this one...the american one scared Sheap too much, (my fiancee's graff name, i'm not going to use her name anymore,) and she is scared to watch the original.

If it's still on there, S&Man is fucking DOPE (pronounced Sandman.)
It's an actual documentary with a creepy twist.

I LOOOOOVE horror, but it has to be PERFECT, so i'm rarely ever satisfied.
My favorites are Paranormal Activity 1 and 2, Insidious 1 and 2, The Conjuring, The Devil Inside, and Occulus.
I feel that Paranormal set off a veritable renaissance in horror films...ghosts over gore...and i hope it continues.

by the way, i LOVED "The Pervert's Guide To Ideology."
It's more of a lecture than a documentary, but a highly entertaining and enlightening lecture.

Due to Sheap's recent case of Anglophilia, we happened upon a British tv show version of Robin Hood that looks very promising.

And...new episodes of Orange is the New Black!!!!

I've watched a few, and they are good, except for they don't focus on Piper, which is odd to me.

Run out and watch Re-Animator ASAP.

Watch all those movies before 11/11/11, which I only included because it's astonishing how bad it is. It's a serious contender for "worst film I've ever seen," but it's hard to hate it because it's absolutely hilarious if you're in the mood for that sort of thing.

i haven't seen The Haunting, but i read the book when i was pretty young...i found it to be pretty damn scary.
I watched grave encounters, eXistenZ, and Henry, and dug those.

Oh, BTW, i caught one called Here Comes The Devil...it was genuinely creepy, for real, plus it has the unique distinction of being one of the few Mexican films i've seen.

I watched A Band Called Death last night, and it was VERY fucking moving, man. Jinsai , as a fellow musician, i urge you to watch that one.

the original Haunting (1963) is one of my favorite movies. It's a slow burn, and some of its spooky tropes are dated (in a way that I actually think is endearing), but it's awesome. I don't think it's on Netflix anymore, but you can rent it on Amazon streaming for a few dollars.

I'll check out that movie later today, once I get all this work done.

I thought the same thing. I was pretty disappointed in what I was seeing, after having heard his specials be regarded as some of the best out there.

Right, right. I had watched all of Delirious and faded out with Raw.

I think Eddie got married, had kids, and thought his talent was doing those films where he plays more than one role. It'd be nice if he tried a bit of standup again.

I'm regularly watching Star Trek: The Next Generation, one of my most compulsively watchable shows ever. I love the mix of smart, serious ideas and pure, unapologetic cheese, sometimes in the same episode. The distinct way they combine the two is something I miss in the new movies, which are geared more to the modern blockbuster audience. The show continues to be a lot of fun, through the good and bad episodes.

Just saw Sound City, which has some great scenes of world-class musicians jamming. I always enjoy seeing footage of musicians I like going through the process of creation, and this has some good stuff. I'd like to see that Reznor/Grohl/Homme combo keep going and see what more they can come up with.

Triplettes of Beleville is streaming, which I like, but more so for its art and animation style than its story. I wish there were more animation films that try to give themselves a distinct look like this does. They do show up every once in a while, like this, or Mind Game, or Wizards. Animation is, in a way, the genre with the most potential for creativity, but the one that limits itself the most.

Vudu is a free service but you have to either buy the movies direct or link an Ultraviolet account. I have friends that collect blu rays and don't use uv so they give be their codes. Or you can buy them on forums for $1-$5. Way bigger selection. New releases. I have a 70" Sony 3d smart tv and Netflix runs most of their stuff in 720 or even 480, not good enough for me. Vudu offers 1080p on almost everything and is almost blu ray quality. I have 6 accounts all linked, 8 devices per account. So 48 devices I can stream from. A ton of people use my account. If you want to try it out I can give access to my secondary account. Not as much as my main account but there is still over 2000 movies and 50 tv series. Just drop me a pm.

Complication was for sure one of my fav parts of the flic.

And they also played one of the few Radiohead songs I know by name and like: 'jigsaws falling into place'

It was a pretty good documentary. Not a ton of new information for me. I do like that the film maker committment to saying that the FBI was corrupt and explaining specifically how. I recall during the trial, the public was lead to believe that Whitely was going to testify. I listened to that reporter David Boreri many days. Whitey's lawyer JW Carney has been involved in a lot of high profile trials including representing a group of sex abuse victims suing the Boston Catholic archdiocese.

The untold story related to Steven Rakes is that he was murdered by an "associate" who I believe, owed him money. They met up for a ice coffee and this guy spiked it with cyanide. (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/stephen-rakes-update-death-of-potential-witness-in-whitey-bulgers-trial-ruled-as-cyanide-poisoning-officials-say/)

I saw the trailer for Marco Polo which is coming out soon.

Anyone else watching Black Mirror? I had heard people raving about this show so I gave it a shot. The first two episodes are fantastic. The second two are not very good. I haven't watched the last two yet, will probably get to them this weekend but after the third and fourth episodes my enthusiasm has waned.

For those who haven't seen it, it's like a modern day version of The Twilight Zone except without any supernatural elements and focusing on how technology can have a dark side in our lives. That sounds awfully bland, I know, but the first two episodes are worth checking out. Not sure about the last two yet.

Weird, I LOVED the first one & didn't really care for the second, I just didn't understand why the cycling was a thing which threw me off. Out of the last two I liked the first one better, although much like the cycling after the "big reveal" of what's really going on it didn't seem very practical to me.

What was the deal with the cycling? I guess it was just a gym? I don't know. The world itself didn't entirely make sense to me. Maybe it was supposed to be ambiguous and confusing in some ways, I don't know.

I just finished the 5th episode last night. It was really good until the last 15 minutes or so, which I had mixed feelings on. I would still say the episode was pretty good, but I wish the last 15 minutes had gone a different direction. So far the only episodes I really enjoyed were the first two.

The whole MMA fighting bit made me wonder what you'd think. He's point is pretty valid: for him, he can't help but see it as an unfair fight. He just can't.

Other than that - the NFL draft jokes were pretty good. His take on religion and leaving it like a curling rock made me laugh hard.

I got really sick this past weekend, especially on Friday and I decided to watch Bojack Horseman so I got through the whole first season and the Christmas special and gotta say I was pleasantly surprised! I am not a big fan of Will Arnett by any means but he was great and the cast was pretty awesome too. I was surprised on how serialized the show was didn't really expect that, thought it would be mostly stand alones with a loose concept. Anyways a good adult cartoon to check out if you ever need to watch anything, only 25 minute episodes so easy to binge watch.

Now getting ready for this weekend and House of Cards season 3!

I only got a bit of the way into it but really like what I've seen so far. This on the heels of having read The Outpost by Jake Tapper earlier this year it gave visual to the hell that can be fighting in that type of terrain. I'd like to finish watching it before I start in on Korengal.

Right now I've been tag-teaming between alternating episodes of Prison Break (which I had started watching about 2 years ago) to Star Trek (started through TOS, the early movies and now just started TNG...ok I'm kind of a dork with this as I'm trying to watch all available Star Trek genre in release order). Prison Break isn't too bad, it's like 24 with MacGyvers. ST:TNG is far campier than I remember (first intro of the Ferengi:good lord) but I still like it a lot.

Ohmahgawd The mountains in Afghanistan is beautiful.I finished this and really liked it for a few reasons: It was pretty unstructured in that the story is really only the time spent with this one group of people in the Korengal valley. It wasn't dramatic like a hollywood movie, the engagements with the Taliban seemed were expected and almost casual. These kids (really) were just doing a job, the reality of immediate death of their own humanizes them both in bare emotions and steely resolve to push past the trauma. I wish more people would see this film rather than American Sniper.

I think I'll give The Red Road a look. I see that their is a second season coming in April.

Yesterday, I watched a great Lance Armstrong documentary called Stop At Nothing – surprisingly, I liked it more than The Armstrong Lie, probably because it does a better job of showing the bigger picture, and not just one guy's personal relationship with Armstrong. It's very good.

I also watched Force Majeure today, which I've been meaning to see since Edgar Wright recommended it, and it's a fine film. Highly ambiguous and pretty slow, but beautifully shot and well acted. It stealthily latches on to you.

Lastly, I started The Invisible War (a doc dealing with rape in the Armed Forces) earlier. I'm only a half hour in and it's already infuriating, but compelling, too.

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are great together. This is not a rip on 9 to 5. Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson do only marginally as a couple (only up to the 4th episode). That part disappoints me.

Finished Sense8. I enjoyed it. Save for floating off on a boat to avoid Whisper is not a complete end to their issues. Where are they going, why won't he be at the other end? Also, all the Senses in the circle do not share what's going on with them with anyone else except for Nomi. I can see for the story why she needed the help of her girl friend, but if you were her, would you believe that this woman is seeing and feeling all of this? I suppose since she had been in the hospital in the beginning, it's more plausible. I do think they wrapped the season to easily have another with this circle of Sense8 or another.

He won't be at the other end waiting for them because his connection to the cluster was severed after Will drugged himself to sleep. Yeah that's something that bugged me how nobody save for Nomi and to an extent Will (although his partner mostly thought he was nuts) told anyone else about their connections. Also some of the characters barely ever connected with each other, Lito connected with the cluster the least i think.. there was the convo with Nomi and he used the Asian girl's martial arts skills and then i guess he and Wolfgang finally had a moment. I suppose the idea is just that there are stronger connections to specific people in the cluster like Riley and Will or Wolfgang and Kala. There seems to be stronger pairs within the cluster. Another thing is why didn't they ask questions more? a lot of them seemed to just come to terms with everything as if it's a natural phenomenon, i get that there were a lot of gradual experiences where they saw someone else in a mirror or suddenly they were in someone else's environment but you'd think they would have been freaking out a lot more than they were.

That's what I've enjoyed about OITNB the most; they've managed to give each character a multi-faceted existence. S3 has focused
on some of the minor characters and I was actually rooting for Pennsatucky this season, especially in the episode where Big Boo helped her realize that she had a problem and then helped her deal with said problem.

I hated OITNB season 3 so very much. As in, I'm done with the show. There's no way for that ship to right itself. It was cheesy and clichéd. I kind of expected a decline, as Kenji Kohan's Weeds sucked after season 3 but this was a way sharper decline than Weeds. That first season was so good and then season two wasn't quite as good but there were still very interesting things going on. This season went full on Atypical Women's Prison Grindhouse Tropes 101.

I like how Piper basically just seems part of an ensemble now, instead of being the main focus. I think it touched on some really great social issues, which I of coursed loved.

Apparently Winona Ryder signed on as a main character and the folks behind "Wayward Pines" are bringing this to Netflix.
I live out on Long Island, we have a local legend about the town of Montauk on the east end that involves a secret military experimentation on children, invisibility cloaking, time travel and other crazy shit.
Montauk does have a crazy military base out there with a huge radar and antenna array, but it's closed to the public with buildings built into the hills over there.
You can see the radar and some of the buildings from the local parks that surround it, but it's apparently guarded and watched so folks won't try and break in.
I suggest you Google "Montauk Project" to learn about our island's little legend... it's sorta similar to the Philadelphia Experiment.
Apparently we were trying to bend lightwaves around military ships to make them invisible, but instead we opened up some time/space portal and the ship disappeared and when it came back the men on it were either dead or embedded into the ship.
I don't know how much of the legend that this show will actually include.
There's also a story about a chair/machine that we developed with the help of aliens that helped us manifest what we imagined.
And apparently it was being used for nefarious purposes, so someone imagined a monster for the machine to create and sabotaged the project when it destroyed the place and everything had to be shut down and sealed.
Fake... real... who cares... it's still a crazy story to search and read about.
