It would be nice if they’d roll them all out at once instead of dragging it out over a couple days. I just did one of these on April 1st!

  • 48 Hours (1982) Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy in a hilarious tale of a con and a cop trying to work together. Directed by Walter Hill.
  • Streets of Fire (1984) It’s got Diane Lane. And Michael Pare. And a motorcycle gang led by Willem Defoe. And Rick Moranis. Directed by Walter Hill.
  • Quigley Down Under (1990) Tom Selleck is a sharp shooter cowboy who goes Down Under and gets in a feud with Alan Rickman.
  • Overboard (1987) Pretty funny movie with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
  • Bad Company (1972) Jeff Bridges in a Civil War era show where he falls in with some… bad company. Instant only.
  • 8 Million Ways to Die (1986) Jeff Bridges again. Rosanna Arquette and Andy Garcia round out the cast with director Hal Ashby (Harold and Maude).
  • Over the Top (1987) Sylvester Stallone and Robert Loggia in an arm wresting movie. I saw this at the theater!
  • Lionheart (1990) Jean-Claude Van Damme. I’ve never seen a Van Damme movie. I think my brother has seen them all.
  • Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (1974) A Hammer horror.
  • Stick (1985) Burt Reynolds directed and stars! Also has Candice Bergen, George Segal, and Charles Durning. Average of 3.3 stars, so it may be worth checking out. Plus, Elmore Leonard wrote it. Instant only.
  • Harlem Nights (1989) Eddie Murphy stars and directs! With Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, Danny Aiello, Michael Lerner, and Della Reese.
  • Ulzana’s Raid (1972) Burt Lancaster in a revisionist Western. I’ve heard good things about it. Instant only.
  • The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) I have some very serious issues with this film. It’s beautiful to look at, but the whole idea of Christ as a crazy man is just too far out there. It’s not the temptation I have a problem with, it’s that Jesus is portrayed as a nut job. That and the scrip is laughably bad in places with trite language and cliches. The tempting in the desert scene is beautiful though and I’d love to watch that one scene again.
  • American Roulette (1988) Andy Garcia in what could be a neat little thriller. Instant only.
  • Crimes of the Heart (1986) Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange, Sissy Spacek, and Sam Shepard in one of those 1980s dramas they did so well back then. Believe it or not, instant only.
  • The Dead Zone (1983) David Cronenberg directs Christopher Walken, Brooke Adams, Tom Skerritt, Herbert Lom, Martin Sheen, and Colleen Dewhurst.
  • Fatal Attraction (1987) Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, Anne Archer, directed by Adrian Lyne. Douglas is stupid enough to cheat on Archer and gets more than he bargained for.
  • Footloose (1984) The only version I know about.
  • How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable, and Lauren Bacall, but a bit disappointing. OK, but not as good as it should have been.
  • Daddy Long Legs (1955) Fred Astaire, Leslie Caron, and the vastly underrated Thelma Ritter.
  • The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958) Based on a true story. Ingrid Bergman as a missionary in China that saves a bunch of kids by marching them over the mountains. Very good and doesn’t seem like a 2 1/2 hour long movie.
  • Max Dugan Returns (1983) Has Jason Robarts which is enough for many people, but also has Marsha Mason, Donald Sutherland, and Matthew Broderick. From a Neil Simon story, and directed by Herbert Ross who directed a bunch of Simon authored movies (and Footloose!). Instant only.
  • Play It Again, Sam (1972) Herbert Ross directs Woody Allen and Diane Keaton.
  • Rain Man (1988) Beautiful car.
  • Silver Bullet (1985) I saw this in the theater and remember liking it quite a bit.

Some Fritz Lang silents!

  • Harakiri (1919) Not the 1962 Japanese one that became available a few weeks ago, but this one is an adaptation of Madame Butterfly.
  • Die Nibelungen: Kriemhild’s Revenge (1924) Fritz Lang “One of the greatest artistic and technical achievements of the German silent cinema, Fritz Lang’s monumental Die Nibelungen is a passionate retelling of Nordic legend…”

Then we have a bunch of Bond, James Bond, 007, beginning with the 1954 TV version of Casino Royale! A must for you Bond completists.
