Sorry. I'm up to my eyeballs at work. When I get home, usually all I can do is go right to bed, with little energy for anything else. I'll try to be more productive here since I always check Netflix and Hulu for new streaming arrivals. My queues for both are fucking ridiculous.

Notable titles on Hulu Plus (added recently):

Akira
Get On The Bus
Devil In A Blue Dress (over here, too)
Babe
Babe: Pig In The City
The Adventures of Milo & Otis
Gimmie Shelter

For fans of world cinema, always plenty of great stuff on their Criterion section, such as:
Seven Samurai (my favorite film of all time)
Cronos (Guillermo Del Toro's debut)
Persona

Speaking of Del Toro, search for Welcome To Bleak House on Hulu. It's a feature on the dvd/blu-ray release of Cronos and should still be available. It's not too long although I wish it was. Del Toro is only the owner of the greatest man cave.

Well, I don't use any streaming services atm but we should use this to select Now Watching movies.

Boom, genius idea.

The Grandmaster has recently been added to Netflix Instant. I found this to be a very worthwhile film, both as a martial arts film and as a Wong Kar-Wai film. My review is on the Movies Watched Recently thread.

There's also an excellent doc on the prog rock band Rush called Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage.
The Oscar winner for Best Documentary, 20 Feet From Stardom, is also available.

And this isn't movie-related but I saw a Twitter post that the past 8 seasons of 24 will be taken off Netflix Instant after this week.

Is it as bad as the western cut of Red Cliff?

What's everyone's favorite movie in the above list? Mine is "A League of Their Own". Jimmy Dugan!

Rocky I hands down. Such a classic. Though admittedly I do like Mean Girls quite a bit. Especially this bit



Can't stand League of Their Own though except a few scenes of Tom Hanks being an asshole.

Chinatown. Every time I've revisited it, it fails to lose any of its splendor.

I love Some Like it Hot...

Also, one of my favorite lines ever is from a Zatoichi movie. A prefectural police guy is looking at a dead lady in a lake. He sits there for a while looking at the scene and says "Well, it was either murder, suicide or an accident."

Brilliant detective work if I say so myself.

Recently added to Netflix:

Short Term 12: one of the best films of last year, one I can comfortably say is perfect in every way. It's about a young couple who work as supervisors at a foster care facility and how the woman's grasp on her job and self-control is shaken with the arrival of a new resident, which brings about memories of her own troubled childhood. If you're not in love with Brie Larson, this ought to do the trick.

Milius - John Milius is one of the best screenwriters and directors to have emerged from the 70s. This guy wrote Apocalypse Now, Dirty Harry, Jeremiah Johnson, Geronimo: An American Legend, Clear And Present Danger; did script polishes on Jaws, The Hunt For Red October and others; directed and wrote The Wind and the Lion, Big Wednesday, Conan The Barbarian, Red Dawn, Dillinger and Rough Riders. He co-created one of my favorite tv series, HBO"s Rome. He's one of the great raconteurs. So why has this man not had as much success as some of his colleagues? Well, because he's an extreme right-winger, he wrestles with the Hollywood studio system at every turn and he fucking loves his guns (well, he made Red Dawn, which didn't go over well PR wise). A fascinating portrait of a man who's still trying to tell stories.

The Dirties - I haven't seen this one but I'm told its excellent. It was an indie from last year that dealt with two high school kids making a film about two picked on teens that get revenge on some bullies and how the film inspires one to seek actual revenge on the bullies that he has to deal with.

The Way Way Back is now on HBO Go for your viewing pleasure. Probably my favorite movie from last year. Co-written and directed by Jim Rash (the Dead from Community) and Nat Faxon.

I'll be checking out those Godzilla movies. Have always wanted to see the cheesier ones.

Glad to see somebody shares my fondness for The Living Daylights. I still rank Dalton in my top 3 Bonds.
