Netflix Watch Now Movies Worth Watching - Episode 2

We're going to keep running the "Netflix Watch Now Movies Worth Watching" as a new weekly feature. 

It’s Friday, the economy (your countries economy as well as your own) is stinking it up and you’re looking for some inexpensive entertainment right?  Well all you need is a one-out-at-a-time Netflix subscription and a Netflix Watch-Now Playback device or a compatible browser.  Each Friday, I’ll be highlighting a selection of the newly added Netflix Watch Now titles you can check out – I’ll try to screen out the worst of the bunch and just leave the better quality ones or at least some of the “broader appeal” titles.

(Disclaimer: Not all of these will appeal to everyone – I’m simply pointing some of the more popular titles ;)



Out of Africa Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.  This one will appeal to the wife probably.

Smart People - Sarah Jessica Parker and Dennis Quad.  A "dark" comedy.

The Shadow Riders - Western/Action-Adventure with Tom Selleck, Sam Elliot and Ben Johnson.

Falcon Down - William Shatner :)  Action Adventure flick that got okay ratings, but hey it's free.

Perfect Opposites - Piper Perabo stars in another Romantic Comedy

Katt Williams: The Pimp Chronicles: Pt. 1 - Katt Williams and Anthony Anderson does comedy on this HBO Special

The Matrix Revolutions - Hopefully you don't need an introduction to this one.  Certainly worth watching.  I have it on DVD but if you don't check it out for free here.

Stargate Continuum - Stargate fans should definitely check this one out.

Full Metal Jacket - Mathew Modine is a Marine Recruit in this Drama directed by Stanley Kubrick.  It's rough on the edges and not for everyone, but if you read the synopsis and are intrigued check it out.

The L Word: Season 6 (All seasons are available if you're interested)

Secret Diary of a Call Girl: Season 2 (Not to get into a theme here, but hey - it's on TV and available on Netflix so....)
