Top 20 Things To Watch On Netflix Streaming
With so much to watch on Netflix, it can get pretty overwhelming. To help you choose something we think you’d enjoy, we have put together two top ten lists of what we recommend you watch over everything else.
Mike’s # 10) “Starlet” (2012)
A movie that really surprised me. A simple plot about an unlikely friendship. Very well acted by the two leads.
David’s #10) “Destiny Turns On the Radio (1995)
Mike’s #9) “How I Live Now” (2013)
David’s #9) “Prince Avalanche” (2013)
Mike’s #8) “Witching and Bitching (2013)
David’s #8) “World’s Greatest Dad” (2009)
A dark comedy that prides itself on being brutally honest about suicide and what happens to those left behind. Robin Williams plays the father of Kyle Clayton and, after Kyle accidentally kills himself, Williams uses his death to better his own life.
Mike’s #7) “Kiss of the Damned” (2012)
David’s #7) “Where the Buffalo Roam” (1980)
Everyone knows Johnny Depp portrayed Hunter S. Thompson and did an amazing job. What most missed out on was Bill Murray playing the role eighteen years earlier. Just as insane, and just as funny, Murray gives one of his better performances and one everyone should watch.
Mike’s #6) “Filth” (2013)
David’s #6) “Whitey: USA Vs. James J Bulger” (2014)
A man that was given full immunity by the FBI to kill whomever he wanted, and takes anything he desired, has been caught after 16 years on the lam. Whitey Bulger is finally brought to trial for the crimes he committed, yet the story takes a different turn.
Mike’s #5) “The One I Love” (2014)
David’s #5) “Kill List” (2011)
Completely skipping being put into any one category, Kill List stands alone as one of the more creative films to come out in the past couple of years. Paganism, hit men, drama, this film packs it all into one movie watching experience.
Mike’s #4) “Ravenous” (1999)
David’s #4) “Oculus” (2013)
Mike’s #3) “Jesus Camp” (2006)
David’s #3) “Snowpiercer” (2013)
Mike’s #2) “Resolution” (2012)
David’s #2) “Peaky Blinders” (2013-)
Rounding out my top two are television shows, and ones you should watch immediately, starting with Peaky Blinders. A crime family that will take whatever it wants and corrupting or killing anyone who stands in their way. Brilliant story telling propelled by interesting drama and action.
Mike’s #1) “Blue Ruin” (2013)
Best indie film of 2014 (and Wes Anderson films don’t count). Macon Blair deserves an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a man who is consumed by revenge. The last time I was this surprised by a movie was when I watched “Primer” for the first time.
David’s #1) “Black Mirror” (2011-)
Each episode is its own story. Each one deals with the human condition and the way technology is shaping our futures. On point writing, great acting, and cool accents, this British TV show demands you stop whatever you’re doing and binge watch it.
