COSMOS – Easily the best and arguably most important and informative show on Netflix. Neil DeGrasse Tyson hosts with brilliance and charm this visually astounding reboot of Carl Sagan’s classic series. More than a ‘Space’ show, this is about history and politics and religion, and who we are, who we were, and who we may be. A seminal show.
SUPERNATURAL- Shame on me for avoiding this show so long, On the 5th season and I’m loving it
THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY- 2 part series. Excellent direction.
KIDNAP AND RANSOM – Great six part series
BEING MARY JANE – Finally something interesting and good from the BET channel
COMMITMENT- Good Korean action, espionage thriller
DAY WATCH/NIGHT WATCH
I KNOW THAT VOICE – great documentary on voice-over actors
BLOOD GLACIER- I quite like this low budget horror film, with a greenhouse conceit. A definite homage to Carpenter’s THE THING while still being its own pretty imaginative animal. Pun intended. If a fan of THE THING or FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY, you’ll like BLOOD GLACIER.
BLUE RUIN- It begins with a seeming vagabond and where it ends…a brilliant, violent and perhaps cautionary thriller. Strongly recommended.
DEAD SILENCE – Not great, but a solid good horror flick
OPERATION CONDOR 2 – Fun, 80s Jackie Chan action
HARLOCK SPACE PIRATE- Great motion capture Animation and a spectacular story. Watch the subtitled version as the dubbed one is just different enough to be unclear.
TRUE NATURE- Far better than the poster would lead you to believe. Go into this one blind, you’ll enjoy.
And ones not worth your time would be:
PARKER (boring), ANDROID INSURRECTION, SHADOW FURY, THE LAST DAYS ON MARS, STAKE LAND (well made, I’m simply not a fan)
