The Netflix Queue: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a sharp piece of filmmaking that deserves more than it got upon its release.

The Netflix Queue: Flakes (2007)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds January 31, 2014 0 Comment 4193 views

I’m not sure if I’ve just seen Zooey Deschanel play the “cute, quirky free spirit” character one too many times now, or if 2007’s Flakes was just a career misstep, but her character, who says she legally changed her name to Miss Pussy Katz on her eighteenth birthday, is frustratingly unlikeable.  Let me back up […]

Red State, while not really awful, proves Kevin Smith should stick with comedies.

The Netflix Queue: The Swell Season (2011)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds December 2, 2013 0 Comment 3663 views

The Swell Season is available for streaming on Netflix Instant. It’s hard not to find The Swell Season’s (Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova) Cinderella story endearing: They starred together in the Irish indie film Once, which was filmed over three weeks on a $100,000 budget, and a song they co-wrote for it, “Falling Slowly,” went […]

The Netflix Queue: A Band Called Death (2012)

Posted by Toyiah Murry November 28, 2013 0 Comment 2454 views

A Band Called Death is currently streaming on Netflix Instant. When you think of Detroit Michigan, usually thoughts of famed 1960s recording company Motown comes to mind. The string of classic hits and artists Motown birthed in its heyday became synonymous with the city: The Temptations, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, Gladys […]

The Netflix Queue: Room 237 (2012)

Posted by Brandy Dean October 30, 2013 0 Comment 3011 views

Room 237 is available for streaming on Netflix. Okay. Um. (Deep breath) Room 237 is… crazy? Okay, try again. It’s no secret that the world of cinephilia hosts a variety of people who are, shall we say, slightly askew. The obsessive movie maniac tends to be just that – obsessive. We’ll travel to far away […]

The Netflix Queue: The Notebook (2004)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds October 27, 2013 1 Comment 15647 views

The Notebok is available on Netflix Instant Streaming. Okay, I’ll admit it: I’d never seen The Notebook. Apparently, this is a serious problem for almost everyone I know. So, you win. I watched it. I still fail to see what is so romantically endearing about The Notebook. When we meet Noah (Ryan Gosling), the film’s […]

The Netflix Queue: She Done Him Wrong (1933)

Posted by Toyiah Murry October 21, 2013 0 Comment 3432 views

She Done Him Wrong is streaming on Netflix Instant. Up until recently I’d never seen a Mae West film. Throughout all my years of movie watching, the bodacious, sassy vixen’s films always seemed to escape my grasp. West was one of those actresses that despite never seeing a single film of hers, I’ve known about […]

The Netflix Queue: It’s A Disaster (2012)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds October 19, 2013 0 Comment 3290 views

It’s A Disaster (2012) is available on Netflix Instant Streaming. How would the average person react to the end of the world? Would we act out our most self-aggrandizing zombie apocalypse fantasies or cower in a corner and wait for someone else to save us? The protagonists of Todd Berger’s It’s A Disaster (2012) do […]

The Netflix Queue: Event Horizon (1997)

Posted by Toyiah Murry October 15, 2013 0 Comment 19699 views

Event Horizon is available on Netflix Instant Streaming. Something strange happened while watching Event Horizon for the first time. Lying on my couch about half way into the film, the television screen blacked out.  At the same time, an external hard drive in the room began to whiz and hiss, seemingly out of control. I panicked […]
