New Netflix Instant Streaming for December 2013


Lots of great stuff this month! We’ll start with some Holiday Favorites

  • 8 Million Ways to Die (1986) Jeff Bridges is a burnt out ex-narcotics cop. With Rosanna Arquette directed by Hal Ashby.
  • All About Eve (1950) Oscar winning picture with Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Thelma Ritter and young Marilyn Monroe. Some witty dialog in this story of a Broadway queen getting old with a young manipulator ready to knock her off her throne.
  • Apocalypse Now (1979) and Apocalypse Now Redux (2001). I’ve not seen the Redux. Is it trippyer than the old one?
  • Beach Blanket Bingo (1965) The opposite of Apocalypse Now, but my wife loves these movies.
  • Black Sunday (1977) John Frankenheimer directs this Superbowl terrorist story involving the Goodyear blimp.
  • Cherry 2000 (1987) Melanie Griffith, Ben Johnson, and Harry Carey Jr.? Futuristic android wives?
  • Coffy (1973) Blaxploitation at it’s finest.
  • Cry-Baby (1990) Director John Waters got an amazing cast here: Johnny Depp, Susan Tyrrell, Polly Bergen, Iggy Pop(!), Ricki Lake, Traci Lords, Troy Donahue, Joey Heatherton, Patricia Hearst(!), and Willem Dafoe.
  • Dances with Wolves (1990) I don’t care what you say, I like this movie!
  • The Endless Summer (1966) I love this show! My kids do too!
  • The Escape Artist (1982) It’s got Terri Garr, that should be enough.
  • Friday Foster (1975) Check out this cast! Pam Grier, Yaphet Kotto, Godfrey Cambridge, Eartha Kitt, Jim Backus, Scatman Crothers, and Carl Weathers.
  • The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) My mom loves this movie. Rex Harrison and George Sanders are pretty much always entertaining.
  • Gods and Monsters (1998) about James Whale, the director of Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, and The Invisible Man.
  • Hammett (1982) Dashell Hammett wrote The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man. A made-for-TV movie, but pretty interesting take on what-if-Hammett-was-really-involved-in-a-mystery.
  • Hell Up in Harlem (1973) aka Black Caesar part 2.
  • Hondo (1953) A solid John Wayne.
  • Internal Affairs (1990) Richard Gere is one cold-blooded son of a …
  • The Lair of the White Worm (1988) Director Ken Russell, stars… Hugh Grant?
  • Zulu (1964) see also Zulu Dawn (1979)
  • Modern Problems (1981) Chevy Chase is an air traffic controller. Wasn’t there a movie with John Candy as an air traffic controller? Ah yes, it’s called Summer Rental.
  • Once Bitten (1985) Jim Carry and Lauren Hutton.
  • One from the Heart (1982) Directed by Coppola, stars Frederic Forrest, Teri Garr, Raul Julia, Nastassja Kinski, Harry Dean Stanton, and Rebecca De Mornay.
  • Prison Girls (1972) The title and date should tell you if this is for you.
  • Sheba, Baby (1975) Pam Grier.
  • A Shot in the Dark (1964) A Pink Panther movie that wasn’t one originally. It’s pretty funny, but a bit long in a few places. “You’ve broken my pointer thingy!” And George Sanders!
  • Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) This is the only Star Trek movie I like. There, I said it.
  • Targets (1968) I’ve heard a lot of good things about Peter Bogdanovich’s debut starring Boris Karloff.
  • The Two Jakes (1990) A sequel to Chinatown, but the only good is Harvey Keitel.
  • Where the Buffalo Roam (1980) Based on Hunter S. Thomson. With Bill Murray.
  • For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism (2009) I love reading film criticism, so I can’t wait to watch this.
  • Robin Hood (1973) The Disney version with Robin as a fox. Probably my favorite Disney movie.
  • The Sword in the Stone (1963) Disney version of King Arthur.
  • My Week with Marilyn (2011) One week with Marilyn Monroe.
