Netflix Queue

With summer waning, the kids back to school and the wife back to work, I’m finally able to weed some of the junk out of my Netflix queue (sorry, girls but Definitely, Maybe looked definitely dumb). But, in case you’re wondering, the Harold and Kumar selection below is all mine.

Just finished The Orphanage and, I’ve gotta say, it’s one of the creepiest horror films I’ve ever seen. Described as a “gothic chiller,” the scares in this Spanish language film are more psychological than gore. An extremely well-made, disturbing movie. Redbelt‘s on the way. I’m a huge fan of David Mamet, and am looking forward to his treatment of the martial arts sub-culture. The Fall and Iron Man are both slated for September releases and, in October, another film I’ve been itching to see: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

    Can’t wait for your adult thoughts on Blow Up since I was a naive college girl when I saw it, but the impact was sure even then.

    Loved August Rush. Freddie Highmore was outstanding. That’s all I’ll say for now. 🙂

    Definitely, maybe was a good one! And I want to see August Rush too!

    I just watched Dark City Directors Cut and I was severely disappointed. I had never seen the original version ever.

    Here’s what I said about it:
    Whoa, I cannot believe that this movie got a 76% on rottentomatoes. I have to ask why? Not only is the acting terrible, but the characters are never developed, nor believable, and the story is not enticing. I sat through one and a half hours of a poorly developed story only to get 10 minutes of a reasonably creative dystopian twist ending where we find out that these alien things are experimenting with the humans in the city so they can understand what it means to be human. But even the movie fails to show us why “being human” is such a great thing. The process of getting to those reasonably interesting 10 minutes is just not worth it.

    I’ve posted more here:

    Next on my queue is:
    Solaris (1973)
    Firefly (series)
    Death Race 2000
    Drive In Double Feature: Creation/War
    The Cave
    Grand Tour: The Disaster in Time
    The Gleaners and I
