There are thousands of movies on Netflix. Just trying to search for the right movie to watch can take more time than the actual movie itself! Not only do you have to decide the genre of the film you want to watch but then you have to go through movies in that category that Neflix “recommends” for you. Did you know that those movies are only a small sample size of what Netflix actually has to offer?
I try to watch as many movies as possible in every genre possible. I love watching movies, even the bad ones. Sometimes I like to watch the low budget horror films just to laugh at them or maybe even find a diamond in the rough. It’s all good to me. Although I find joy in almost every movie, I’m still a tough critic when it comes to rating them.
Every Friday (when possible), I’m going to come out with a “What to Watch on Netflix this Weekend” blog post. This is so my readers don’t have to spend hours upon hours searching for that “right” movie, and I hope to potentially help my readers find that “diamond” or at least find something they’ll enjoy or didn’t even know was on Netflix.
For the Vampire / Post Apocalyptic World Movie Lover:
Stake Land – 7.2/10
The World is lost and there is nothing left in humanity but blood sucking beasts and the people who will either kill or be killed. Martin (Connor Paolo) just saw his family devoured by Vampires and gets taken under the wing of Mister (Nick Damici), who is a vampire slayer.
Stake Land has a great post apocalyptic atmosphere to it. It takes the viewer into a world where people are desperate and will do anything to survive. It throws the viewer right into the action in the first minute of the movie but doesn’t feel forced like some movies do. This is definitely a movie to check out especially for the vampire lovers.
For the whole family:
Lilo & Stitch – 9.6/10
Lilo (Daveigh Chase) is a young girl who feels out of place. Her “friends” don’t like her, her sister, Nani (Tia Carrere), has to take the role of Lilo’s mother, and school just seems to get her even more out of place. To give Lilo a reason to be happy, Nani decides it would be best to get Lilo a pet. Stitch (Chris Sanders) is a dangerous alien who escaped from his creator. He shows up at the the pet store and Lilo decides to adpot him.
Lilo & Stitch find a way to touch the viewers’ hearts. With the combination of laughs, heart felt moments, drama, and action, Lilo & Stitch should be watched by everyone at least once, especially the families.
“‘Ohana’ means ‘family.’ ‘Family’ means ‘no one gets left behind.'”
For the Comedy Lover:
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa: Unrated Cut – 9.1/10
This movie does what the guys from Jackass do best, unscripted comedy. Johnny Knoxville is a bad grandpa, Irving Zisman, who has to take care of his daughter’s child, Billy (Jackson Nicoll). Billy’s mother has to go to jail, and Irving has to find a way to get Billy to his father. On this journey, Irving and Billy experience love, hate, hilarious comedy, and many unscripted moments that Jackass does best. Johnny Knoxville is on his game, and Billy provides great support for a movie that will have viewers laughing a lot and feeling connected to the characters. If you’re in the mood for a good laugh, you should check out Bad Grandpa.
