As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve occasionally heard before that there are no good movies to watch on Netflix Instant movies.
Since I beg to differ, and after the last post’s popularity, I’ve made a list of random comedies, dramas, and just general good movies to watch. As of right now in August 2013, they’re all available to watch on Netflix.
A Bag of Hammers
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: This movie is smart, funny, and real. The acting is pretty impeccable too, I thought. A great slice of life sort of movie that sticks with you for awhile after you see it. Five stars, for sure.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: I can’t say enough good things about this movie. Even though I’ve seen it quite a few times, it never gets old. The cinematography is beautiful, the acting is great, and the story is moving.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: This movie really has characters you kind of fall in love with. It’s completely raw, and in the beginning seems almost too strange to go anywhere as awesome as it does. Do yourself a favor and watch it.
The Music Never Stopped
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: This movie is awesome in every form of the word. Such an incredibly touching story. Great music throughout is an added bonus.
Everything Must Go
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: Based on a Raymond Carver story, Will Ferrell really outdoes himself here. I can’t really think of one thing I didn’t like in this. I’d consider it a must-see.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: Another movie with an amazingly strong cast, this is probably one of my new favorites. Sure, it’s a little dark, but it’s not without reason. Stunning.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: A better question might be, Why NOT to watch? With Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and the adorable kid in this movie, it’s a great comedy. Win.
All My Friends Are Funeral Singers
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: This movie, albeit a bit strange, is pretty interesting. I like the concept, which is based around a woman who makes her living as a fortune teller, who can see ghosts that live in her house with her. Strangely romantic and nice.
Girl In Progress
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: A bit cheesy, this is one of my guilty pleasures type of movie. It’s girly, lighthearted, cliche in quite a few ways, but hey- it’s entertaining! Don’t judge me.
WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: This movie is pretty funny for several reasons, two of them being Luke Wilson and Jack Black. Good movie, based on a good book.
