Movies to Check Out on Netflix This Weekend

Standard

Staying home tonight or just need some lazy Saturday viewing ideas? Check out what’s newly streaming on Netflix and some classics you might want to check out again.

Flight – Did you see the commercials and wondered how or why Denzel Washington landed a plane that was upside down but you didn’t care enough to pay $10.50 to find out? Now you can.

Olympus Has Fallen – Of the two White House attack movies released this year, this is the one with Gerard Butler and not Channing Tatum.

Sharknado – Syfy’s summer sensation is yours to watch and rewatch, with friends, snacks and probably a lot of booze. The acting is amazingly bad but if you ever wanted to see Ian Ziering chainsaw through a shark from the inside, consider your wish granted.

Safe Haven – Looking for some romantic drama this weekend? Try this one with Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough.

The Hunger Games – With Catching Fire coming out soon, this would be a great time to rewatch and refresh your memory.

Zoolander – I don’t care how many times you’ve seen this in the past 12 years, it’s time to watch it again. But just remember, it’s merman, Dad. Merman!

Boondock Saints – Having trouble surviving the six days between Daryl fixes on Walking Dead? Fill the gap with guns, accents and badassery. And Norman Reedus, of course.

Christmas Vacation – I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but it’s pretty much always time to watch this classic. At the very least, check out the animated opening credits (remember how that was a thing in the 90s?) with the grumpy reindeer and the Christmas Vacation theme song.

Find something else worth checking out on Netflix streaming? Let me know!

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Standard

The full trailer for X-Men Days of Future Past is finally here! Check it out below:

There’s a lot going on in this movie, which means it’ll be the best movie evar or kind of a mess. I’m a big fan of X-Men, time travel, paradoxes and Michael Fassbender though, so I think I’ll be just fine.

What about you? What are your thoughts on the first trailer?

Things to Watch on Netflix Instant Right Now

Standard

It’s almost Halloween so maybe you’re in the mood for a creepy, spooky, scary marathon. Here are some movies streaming right now on Netflix:

Cabin in the Woods – If you haven’t seen it, now’s the time. If you have seen it, now’s the time to watch it again.

Resident Evil – I’m talking the first one with the red dress, zombie dogs and lasers that slice and dice.

The Nightmare Before Christmas – What’s this? It’s streaming? Why, yes. Yes, it is.

Ghostbusters – The classics still hold true, which is part of the reason I lost $10 on a Ghostbusters slot machine this weekend.

Carrie – The original. The reason none of us misfit toys trusts when popular kids say we’ve won something.

Paranorman – I haven’t seen it yet but I’ve heard great things. If you haven’t seen it yet either, maybe it’s time to try something new this Halloween.

The Faculty – Definitely one of my all time favorites. Watch it again and remember the days when Jon Stewart was in movies. I still say he’s a good actor, even if he doesn’t think so.

Check out your Halloween recommendations on Netflix for more options, including Evil Dead, the Scream movies, Psycho, Slither, The Crow, Hellboy and much more.
