A ton of new films have been added to Netflix Streaming over the past few days so I thought I’d the usual rundown on the films that have caught my eyes. This week we’re organizing films by decade.
They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!: Sequel to In the Heat of the Night but with more of a blaxploitation feel.
Dirty Harry: Continuing the San Francisco theme from Tibbs we have “Dirty” Harry Callahan taking on the Scorpio killer.
The Enforcer: The second Dirty Harry sequel follows Harry as he gets a woman partner… how did she get out of the kitchen?
|Who the fuck are you and why aren’t you making me a sandwich?|
|Blowjob jokes are funny but blowjob jokes involving blowup dolls is even better.|
My Bodyguard: A great high school film about a bullied boy that hires an older student to be his bodyguard.
Conan The Barbarian: This isn’t that shitty remake but the original Arnold Schwarzenegger classic full of asskicking and James Earl Jones turning into a snake. This is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Lone Wolf McQuade: Chuck Norris vs. David Carradine! Star Trek fans, be on the lookout for Robert Beltran from Star Trek Voyager. This trailer is amazing.
Hoosiers: One of the best sports movies ever made. Gene Hackman plays a disgraced college basketball coach that moves to a small Indiana town and meets some resistance from the town’s population because of his unorthodox methods.
Beat Street: Rae Dawn Chong stars in one of the first hip-hop films ever made
St. Elmo’s Fire: Leave me alone, I can’t explain why I like this movie but I do. I hope it has something to do with how ridiculously 80′s it is.
Sid & Nancy: The amazing Gary Oldman portrays Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols. I find this to be a hard film to watch but there are some amazing performances and if you’re a fan of the Sex Pistols or Punk this is an absolute watch.
About Last Night…: I’m not as ashamed of liking this film as I am of St. Elmo’s Fire since there are several scenes featuring Demi Moore when she still had great natural tits. Hooray!
The Dead Pool: The final Dirty Harry film. I wish all five Dirty Harry films were available to stream from Netflix but you’ll have to live with the first, third, and fifth (and final) film.
|Guns are for pussies, I’ve got a harpoon.|
Leviathan: This is an absolutely horrible film that I have to watch anytime I see it on TV. Some folks are at the bottom of the ocean and are being killed one by one by a “terrifying” creature.
|I couldn’t find a good quality trailer or any pictures I liked for this film so here’s a picture from the Leviathan
wet bra competition.
Quigley Down Under: Tom Selleck plays the strong, silent cowboy but in Australia. This film was a flop when it was released but I think it’s very decent partially because of it’s great villain played by Alan Rickman
Honorable 80′s Film that happened to be filmed in 2010… The Expendables
Flatliners: It was just recently announced that Flatliners is being remade so you might as well watch this before running out to see another terrible remake. Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, and company try and find out if there’s an afterlife.
|I love how this looks like a high school yearbook photo|
Awakenings: Robert De Niro’s a retard or something right?
Dutch: One of my favorite films as a kid. I used to watch it every time I saw it on HBO. Ed O’Neil has to take a bratty asshole across the country for Thanksgiving. Written by John Hughes
Philadelphia: Jonathon Demme’s follow up to Silence of the Lambs. I still think it’s as potent today as it was 18 years ago.
Dazed and Confused: Yeah… Do I have to tell you anything about this film?
Mulholland Falls: I don’t love this film but I like film noir so I recommend it just for that.
Beautiful Girls: I think this is a really underrated film about a man (Timothy Hutton) coming home for his high school reunion and re-examining his life choices and his life goals. Rosie O’Donnell is in it but I promise she doesn’t ruin the film.
Good Will Hunting: The last good Robin Williams performance. Why haven’t Matt Damon and Ben Affleck written another movie together?
