Last month when I was still in some muscle pain I passed on going out on St. Patrick’s Day because I didn’t want to be jostled. So while I was chilling I thought I would do a Netflix post on my top drinking movies. However I couldn’t find any of them aside from the titles that I had already covered in my Top Sex Comedies On Netflix Streaming post. Then I remembered that 4/20 was coming up. So potheads, rejoice! I was inspired to put this together.

As I once read on in reference to weed, I “don’t even know what it smells like”. But seriously my poison is booze, not grass. However I do get a lot of laughs out of pothead cinema.

Just click the movie title to be taken to it on Netflix.

Kevin Smith: Too Fat for 40 (2010) (Available Until October 1, 2013)

This is the 4th in Evening With Kevin Smith series. They are all very interesting if you like to hear him talk about film-making. This one is notable to this genre because he discusses when he started smoking marijuana heavily. While I’m not crazy about the effect that it’s had on his films there is a funny story about him being high and the police showing up at his house during this performance.

Super High Me (2007) (Available Until June 17, 2028)

This is a satire documentary starring comedian Doug Benson. It’s basically a take off of Super Size Me but with weed instead of burgers. Side note-it’s invariably one of the top watched instant films from Netflix members in West Virginia every month. I’ve lived in WV before and they are not really the satirical type so I’m guessing that it’s a good excuse for them to light up.

That 70’s Show seasons 1-8 (the full series) (Available Until August 16, 2036)

That 70’s Shows was about a group of teen friends in the ’70s. It sort of broke ground by showing the kids sit around and smoke pot in a circle on screen (inferred, you didn’t see the joint). Over the course of the seasons there were also other funny marijuana moments. Plus Tommy Chong was hilarious on there as the always drugged Leo. The episode You Can’t Hear Me Knocking (season 7, episode 13) is what I consider to be the most hilariously weeded out ep ever.

Weeds (full series) (Available Until April 01, 2018)

the brick dance

You’re probably aware that Weeds is a showtime dramedy about Nancy Botwin who is a suburban, single mother, who often dresses overtly sexually and subsists on coffee, who starts selling weed to make ends meet when her husband dies. Of course since the first season it has taken many twists and turns.

Futurama Volumes 1-5
Futurama The Movie: Bender’s Big Score (2007)

human Bender has impulse control issues

I don’t remember Futurama having much reefer content but it’s just the type of thing that someone might watch if they were indulging in it. There were some Futurama films before the series was brought back to TV. They are uneven but my favorite is below. Plus I highly recommend the creepy episode mentioned below, “You watched it, you can’t unwatch it!”.
Anthology of Interest Part 2 (volume 3)

(and you have to be in some type of altered state to enjoy this)

Family Guy (Volumes 1-8)

Seth MacFarlane‘s Family Guy definitely mentions the green on occasion. Plus the show is entirely crazy and like twice as popular in areas where people smoke a lot.

Half Baked (1998)
half baked

Basically the funniest stoner movie ever! That’s all.

Cheech & Chong
Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke (1978)
Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie (1980) (not currently available)
Cheech & Chong’s Nice Dream (1981) (not currently available)
A/k/a/ Tommy Chong (2006) (Not Currently Available)

Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This (2010)

I’m not a big Cheech & Chong fan. I am a fan of Tommy Chong from his work on That 70’s Show and I was forced to watch bad Cheech Marin movies while growing up but I find that Cheech & Chong is the sort of thing that you had to have been there to appreciate. I’ve watched bits and pieces of them but they didn’t do much for me. On the other hand, my father finds them hilarious. The documentary about how Pennsylvania set up Chong is very good.

Not Currently Available

Smiley Face (2007) (Not Currently Available)

“They say that true potheads stops getting the munchies after a certain point. I mean the true pothead wouldn’t even say the word munchies. I don’t know what the true pothead would say.”munchos” or “hungries” or something. At any rate, I still love to eat when I’m high. So fuck you if you’re too cool to get hungry when you’re stoned.”

Smiley Face is a completely underrated comedy by the amazing Gregg Araki. Anna Faris stars as a totally believable, out of it pothead actress who has a very eventful day. It has everything-big laughs, paranoia, munchies, police and hornyness. Plus it costars John Krasinski, Danny Masterson, John Cho and Danny Trejo. And it’s approved by President Garfield.

Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000) (Not Currently Available)

Dude, Where’s My Car is just so much over the top fun that you need to watch it, now. Back when Ashton Kutcher and Sean William Scott were just out to make you laugh in any way possible they made this. If Bill & Ted had dumber cousins it would be these guys. Keep an eye out for Hal Sparks as a cult leader, Kristy Swanson and a high dog. And if you are into seeing Kutcher and Scott kiss each other in this flick, see my previous post.

The Big Lebowski (1998) (Not Currently Available)

“Nobody calls me Lebowski. You got the wrong guy. I’m the Dude, man.”

In one of Jeff Bridges’ best roles ever he plays the weed smoking, Caucasian drinking, “The Dude”, who just finds himself in some crazy ass situations. Such is a Coen Brothers film. I’ve always wanted to attend a Lebowski Fest. Hopefully I shall in the future.

Bio-Dome (1996) (not currently available)

“And when where not saving the environment, we’re thinkin’ of you, naked, thigh deep in tofu.”

Yep, I am totally mentioning Pauly Shore again. Pauly Shore movies, as I just realized, were all fish out of water stories in which Shore was forced to interact with “normal” people, which is awesome. Back before Stephen Baldwin became a born again tool he costarred in this flick about the two of then accidentally ending up in a bio-dome. In fact, at that time, all of us were required to live in bio-domes for at least a few months…

Sike! Ha, ha, teens, you missed the best of the 90’s!

Friday (1995) (not currently available)

Plot: “Having just been canned from his job on his day off, Craig and his best friend Smokey spend the day smoking up in their South Central neighborhood while dealing with a neighborhood bully, relationship troubles, an angry drug dealer, and a lot of other odd characters.”-from The film is pretty much considered a classic by many. It stars Ice Cube and Chris Tucker. I prefer Friday After Next.

The Stoned Age (1994) (Not Currently Available)

Plot: “Joe and Hubbs are a pair of rockers who are on a quest for ‘chicks’. This is the tale of their adventures over one night. “-from I’ve um, been meaning to watch this movie, for years. I actually bought a video copy a few years ago but the sound was messed up. I’ve just been too busy as of late but it seems like fun.

not Netflix related but still funny

Sex and the City – Season 3 “Hot Child in the City” with that hot VJ from VH1
“…if they see billions of chicken wings they’re gonna know we were smoking the pot”

Homer is high on The Simpsons
“we have a kitchen!”

P.S. Feel free to list your favorite pot related movies or those you watch while smoking as a comment since I am definitely not an expert on this subject.

So for this installment of my Netflix series I thought that I would address action movies. When I was a child I really wasn’t crazy about action movies. Later they grew on me though.

Netflix has a big action movie section that includes some up to date movies. I haven’t watched most of the B action movies that they have because a B action movie usually has shitty special effects.

One thing I like about action movies is that it’s harder for me to nitpick at them. If I watch a movie or show and notice something ridiculous like the implication that Paypal is magic or putting a teenager in a Social Distortion shirt I get annoyed and it pulls me out of the story. However I’m right brained so while I always breezed through English and similar classes in school, math and science sometimes tripped me up. This means that when the ridiculous explosion happens in an action movie I’m less likely to see something wrong with it than a mechanic or engineer. And I like that.

Plus I do like to see hot guys blow shit up on occasion.

Just click the movie title to be taken to it on Netflix.

From Paris With Love (2010) (Available Until September 08, 2012)

Plot: In Paris, a young employee in the office of the US Ambassador hooks up with an American spy looking to stop a terrorist attack in the city. (from I saw this flick when it first came out and really enjoyed it. Get over John Travolta’s glistening dome and you can get into it. The always fantastic Jonathan Rhys Meyers costars.

Harry Brown (2009) (Available Until December 01, 2012)

Plot: An elderly ex-serviceman and widower looks to avenge his best friend’s murder by doling out his own form of justice. (from Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer star in this flick.

Revolver (2005) (Available Until March 01, 2013)

Revolver is a great little movie so it kind of sucks that it doesn’t seem as though many people have seen it. It was written and directed by Guy Ritchie. The cast includes Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Vincent Pastore and Andre Benjamin (Outkast). Plot: It centers on a revenge-seeking confidence trickster whose weapon is a universal formula that guarantees victory to its user, when applied to any game or confidence trick. (from

XXX (2002) (Available Until November 30, 2016)

Yes, XXX is another Vin Diesel movie (I have a bit of a crush on him). Plot: Xander Cage is an extreme sports athlete recruited by the government on a special mission. (from The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Asia Argento. Action, romance, night clubs, Euro-trash, what more can you ask for?

Knockaround Guys (2001) (Available March 25, 2012)

This was one of Vin Diesel’s first big roles. It centers around a bunch of young wannabe mobsters. The cast includes Barry Pepper, Andy Davoli, Seth Green, John Malkovich and Dennis Hopper.

Reindeer Games (2000) (Available Until January 01, 2013)

Reindeer Games seems to have a bad rap but it’s a very enjoyable movie. Ben Affleck’s character is fresh out of prison and has decided to pass himself off as his cellmate, who was having a relationship through the mail with Charlize Theron’s character, which seems like the thing to do. However he doesn’t know what is in store for him. Gary Sinise costars.

The Edge (1997) (Available Until June 30, 2012)

Plot: A billionaire and two other men are stranded, unequipped, by a plane crash in a dangerous wilderness. How many will survive to be rescued? (from The film stars Anthony Hopkins, Alec Baldwin and Elle Macpherson.

Cliffhanger (1993) (Available Until March 01, 2012)

Cliffhanger is impressive because Stallone could do anything. He could even kick a mountain’s ass, sorta. Even the posters utilize the movie’s most special effect, Stallone’s strength. And no, I’m not attracted to him, well except in Demolition Man (warning: semi-nude Sly, apparently this impressed me at age 10). Plot: A botched mid-air heist results in suitcases full of cash being searched for by various groups throughout the Rocky Mountains. (from Costars John Lithgow and Michael Rooker. Directed by Renny Harlin.

Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991) (Available Until February 25, 2012)

“I wanted to tell you that you have the biggest dick I’ve ever seen on a man.”

Yes, this is the action movie in which Dolph Lundgren teaches Brandon Lee to be Asian. I picked it up at the flea market when I was going through that week that I had a crush on Brandon Lee. (All teen girls go through that crushing on a hot, dead teen idol phase, I assume). Who cares about the “plot”. All you need to know is that Dolph Lundgren wears stuff like that and Brandon Lee checks out and mentions his package. Plus it costars Tia Carrere.

Escape from New York (1981) (Available Until March 15, 2012)

Plot: In 1997, when the US President crashes into Manhattan, now a giant max. security prison, a convicted bank robber is sent in for a rescue. (from I’m partial to Kurt Russell being all hot and one eyed in the sequel, Escape From L.A. because I like cheese and the 90’s but this one’s good too. The film costars Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton and Adrienne Barbeau. It was written and directed by John Carpenter. A remake is currently being considered.

Not Currently Available

Crank 2: High Voltage

Yes, I did choose this movie as one of My Top Movies of 09. This film is a million times more over the top than the first. The 1st was about a guy who has been poisoned running around trying to keep his heart rate up. Now he’s running around with an artificial heart trying to get his heart back. Everything is completely over the top, the violence, the sex and a weird fantasy sequence. This film stars the always action packed Jason Statham, Amy Smart, Dwight Yoakam, Efren Ramirez, Bai Ling, David Carradine and Corey Haim.

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

Plot: A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family’s killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal. (from The film stars Gerard Butler, Jamie Fox and Regina Hall. Butler is great in this, as per usual.

The Fast and the Furious (2001) (not currently available)
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) (not currently available)

When The first The Fast and the Furious movie was released it was quickly deemed awesome by a lot of people, me included. It had a big, excellent ensemble cast (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster) and a decent plot (An undercover cop infiltrates an underworld subculture of Los Angeles street racers looking to bust a hijacking ring, and soon begins to question his loyalties when his new street racing friends become the prime suspects.-from but then they wanted to keep making sequels. The second film is generally considered to be okay (losing the original cast aside from Walker but adding Eva Mendes, Ludacris, James Remar & Tyrese), the third is completely different (set in Tokyo) but the fourth was pretty awesome because it brought back all of the original characters and had some pretty cool special effects scenes. The 5th was also pretty suspenseful.

The Bourne Identity (2002) (not currently available)

I am a fan of the Jason Bourne series. Sometimes you are watching them and you feel like an idiot because you don’t know what’s going on and at other times you’re thinking “stop with the exposition” already but I do enjoy them. Basically all you need to know if you’ve never seen it is that Matt Damon stars in this film in his buffed out mode and has to escape bad guys while trying to figure out who he is and hook up with the chick from Run Lola Run. It costars Clive Owen, Brian Cox and Julia Stiles.

Wild Wild West (1999)

Yes, this is the requisite Will Smith tie in music video. Those were the rules in my day and we didn’t question them.
This flick was inspired by the original 1960’s TV series The Wild Wild West which I did used to watch on occasion do to it be played behind reruns of The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. It was good for it’s time but was a comedy which people seemed to forget when the movie version was released and everyone was hamming it up. It was supposed to be exaggerated. That was the fun of it. Gadgets and puns and Kevin Kline, c’mon? That’s awesome. Plot: The two best hired guns in the West must save President Grant from the clutches of a 19th century inventor-villain. (from The movie was directed by Men In Black’s Barry Sonnenfeld and starred Kevin Kline, Will Smith, Kenneth Branagh and Salma Hayek. It features the odd steampunk culture. While looking for photos for this post I was surprised to find out that people have actually made huge metal spiders like in this film.

The Avengers (1998)

This film was also based on a 1960’s TV series of the same name. Plot: Two British agents (John Steed and Emma Peel) team up to stop Sir August De Wynter from destroying the world with a weather changing machine. (from Now I’m not going to lie and say that this movie didn’t have problems but was it the abomination that critics said that it was? No. It was fun, kitschy and everyone looked fantastic. The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Uma Thurman, Sean Connery and Eddie Izzard.

Executive Decision (1996) (not currently available)

Well if it were up to me Breakdown would be on Netflix Instant but it’s not so you may want to check out this other Kurt Russell movie. Plot: When terrorists seize control of an airliner, an intelligence analyst accompanies a commando unit for a midair boarding operation. (from The film also stars Halle Berry, John Leguizamo, Oliver Platt and Steven Seagal (is this a strike for or against it, I’m not sure).

Broken Arrow (1996)

After Christian Slater was a teen idol but before he become a direct to DVD/failed TV show actor he tried to be an action film star (see also: Hard Rain. That didn’t really work out. Plot: Terrorists steal nuclear warheads from the US military but don’t count on a pilot and park ranger spoiling their plans. (from The film costars John Travolta, Samantha Mathis and Frank Whaley. All that you really need to know is that this one of those movies in which Travolta tries to be the bad guy, which always strikes me as funny (and I like that).

Outbreak (1995) (not currently available)

diseased, killer, monkey (nuff said)
Stars Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, Cuba Gooding Jr. Donald Sutherland and Patrick Dempsey.

Speed (1994)

Speed was, of course, that huge 90s blockbuster about the bus that absolutely could not go above 50MPH or everyone would die. The madman who who was behind this and other devious plans was Dennis Hopper. This was one Keanu Reeves’ huge movies. It was also Sandra Bullock’s breakout role. Jeff Daniels costars.

Timecop (1994)

I am a Jean-Claude Van Damme fan and lucky for you, you can catch a lot of his movies on Netflix Instant. This is one of my favorites though. Plot: An officer for a security agency that regulates time travel, must fend for his life against a shady politician who has a tie to his past. (from Cool concept, Van Damme in his prime and killer splits. Ron Silver costars. It also spawned a spin off series starring Charmed’s Ted King.

The Mad Max Trilogy (Not Currently Available)
Mad Max (1979)
The Road Warrior (1981)
Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985)

I’m sure that you already know about and have seen at least one Mad Max movie. The good news is that Netflix currently has all 3 available for you to watch instantly. Plot: In a dystopic future Australia, a vicious biker gang murder a cop’s family and make his fight with them personal. (from Ah, the days before we knew that Mel Gibson was bat shit crazy. There are 2 new Mad Max films, Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa, in the works with a projected release date of 2012. The shooting date keeps getting pushed due to weather issues. Mel Gibson is not involved. The film stars Charlize Theron. Originally it was rumored that Jeremy Renner would be in the film but now Sam Worthington’s name is being banded about for the role. Unfortunately the actual lead hasn’t been announced yet. If they get either of those guys to do it I would be very happy indeed.

First of all, let’s just say it, most romantic comedies are not that funny. They can still be fun/depressing to watch. Often they are a great guilty pleasure. So kick back with one of these and a giant tub of ice cream the next time you get dumped (kidding, romantic comedy cliche).

The big difference between a romantic comedy and a romantic drama is in the drama one of the main characters usually dies. Many times the studios even try to market a romantic drama as a romantic comedy to increase the box office. We shall try to avoid those in this case. Also, independent comedies are usually pretty heavy and not really “comedies” either. Don’t get me wrong I’m a fan of a lot of independent movies but they will not be light.

Just click the titles to go directly to them on Netflix.

Beautiful Girls (1996) (Available Until June 1, 2016)
“So you’re the little neighborhood Lolita.”
“So you’re the alcoholic high school buddy shit for brains.”

Beautiful Girls is a great film. I hadn’t watched in a while and couldn’t believe how well it had held up. However I’m still not sure if I should put it here because it may be considered more dramatic but there is dark humor but it’s not super dark. The film is about Timothy Hutton’s character who is conflicted and visits his family. While he is there he develops feelings for his teen neighbor Natalie Portman because she has her whole life ahead of her. He always spends a lot of time with his friends. All of them have their own problems and all of their characters are really fleshed out, which is often ignored in a film like this. The film costars Lauren Holly, Michael Rappaport, Mira Sorvino, Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman and Rosie O’Donnell.

My Date With Drew (2003) (Available Until November 1, 2012)
This is actually a pseudo-documentary by Brian Herzlinger. He wants to make a documentary about the search for love but he knows that he needs a hook to get it sold once it’s made. The hook becomes taking Drew Barrymore out on a date. Will he get through to meet her and will he meet the woman of his dreams? Well, you can probably figure those things out by the fact that it got made. It does have a little twist part way through. I recommend this if you enjoy movies about making movies.

Big (1988) (Available Until July 17, 2012)
I’m sure that you’ve seen Big before. Tom Hanks is a young boy who just wants to get childhood over with so he can be a grown up. Somehow once he magically grows up (thanks Zoltar) he is basically handed success on a plate. It’s a cute fantasy film but there is a, slightly creepy, love story in there too. The film costars Elizabeth Perkins and David Moscow.

Intern (2000) (Available Until June 30, 2012)
I was a huge fan of the Jeremy Irons’ version of Lolita back when it was released and thought that Dominique Swain was fantastic in it. Ever since then I have tried to keep up with seeing all of her films. Intern is definitely one of my favorites. She stars as an intern at a fashion magazine who is just trying to keep everything together and maybe get together with a guy, who of course, usually dates little models. The film costars Ben Pullen, Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffin, Paulina Porizkova, James Urbaniak and Andre Leon Talley.

Loser (2000) (Available Until June 1, 2012)
After the success of American Pie Jason Biggs was often cast as an amiable loser. This is a great example of that. He’s a nice, small town guy who comes to New York to attend college but doesn’t fit in with his hard partying, raping roommates. He also falls for the ‘I’m so different because I’m poor but wear Lip Service’ Mena Suvari who is in love with her professor Greg Kinnear (he was everywhere back then). The film was written and directed by Amy Heckerling of Clueless fame.


Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009) (not currently available)
Two yuppie New Yorkers who are in the process of a divorce witness a murder and end up having to hide out in a country setting. I actually rented this movie expecting it to be truly terrible and that I’d be able to get a laugh out of it. It’s actually enjoyable though. It is very formulaic (fish out of water) but charming. It was fun to see Mary Steenburgen and Sam Elliott as the couple who take them in. The most distracting thing is the aging of the 2 leads, Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant, but no one gets to stay young forever unless you have a painting of yourself stashed away somewhere.

New In Town (2009)
Renee Zellweger is a know it all business woman who goes to freezing Minnesota to run a factory. Harry Connick Jr. relunctantly falls for her. This is more on the okay side but if you need a Zellweger fix it can do in a pinch.

Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber (2005) (not currently available)
“I barely have enough time to keep a journal let alone breast feed an orphan.”

I highly recommend this made for TV movie. Jennifer Love Hewitt stars as Katya, a wannabe socialite who actually gets by using credit and lies. Her main goal at the time is to go to a big party but the girl who is throwing it (for good reason) is excluding her. Plus she has to try to keep her new scheming assistant from showing her up at work. Joey Lawrence plays her gay bestie. She falls for a really hot guy but there are complications.

Maid in Manhattan (2002) (not currently available)
If you want to see a Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy you probably really want to watch The Wedding Planner but when that isn’t available you can watch this in its place. Lopez is a maid at a fancy hotel who, in a case of mistaken identity, starts seeing the wealthy Ralph Fiennes character. They don’t have the best chemistry and her precocious child is annoying but the fashion and supporting cast are pretty good. The film costars Chris Eigeman, Amy Sedars, Frances Conroy, Stanley Tucci, Natasha Richardson and Bob Hoskins.

The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) (not currently available)
“To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune. To lose both looks like carelessness.”

I’m a huge fan of Oscar Wilde so I have seen most of the film adaptations of his plays. The plot is about mistaken identity and betrothal and is set in the 1890’s. I recommend anything Wilde related for the dialogue. This version of The Importance of Being Earnest has a great cast that includes Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Frances O’Connor, Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson and Reese Witherspoon. I haven’t watched this in a while but I recall thinking that Witherspoon didn’t do well at playing Cecily.

Someone Like You (2001) (not currently available)
“You’re so easy to talk to, unlike my current cow”

It took me a while to actually watch this movie after it came out. The ads that included a then teeny tiny Ashley Judd running around doing cheers in her underwear while eating ice cream didn’t draw me in. However after I caught it on TV I reluctantly became a fan. Judd is a wannabe writer who works on a talk show (this was a popular career choice for female leads in romantic comedies for quite a while). After she is jilted by yet another jerk in her life, the then (everyone thought) poised for stardom Greg Kinnear, she starts obsessively studying love and sex in nature and comes up with the ‘New Cow’ theory. She starts writing about this using a pseudonym of an older female PHD. She also becomes roommates with Hugh Jackman’s man whore character. She assumes that since she now knows everything about male behavior that he won’t be tempting. All hell turns loose when people want to know more about her alter ego. The film costars Marisa Tomei as her more naive best friend. The film is based on the book Animal Husbandry by Laura Zigman.

Excess Baggage (1997) (not currently available)
When Alicia Silverstone was on top of the world career wise she had her own company, First Kiss Productions. This was the big film that she decided to put out under it. Unfortunately this film and the, at first look, similar A Life Less Ordinary were both released around the same time and both were panned by critics. It’s a shame because I enjoyed both films. Silverstone plays a pampered rich girl who, just wanting her dad’s attention, tries to arrange a fake kidnapping of herself but then is accidently actually kidnapped by a, really hot at the time, Benicio Del Toro. The film costars Christopher Walken and Harry Connick Jr.

Fools Rush In (1997) (not currently available)
Growing up my sister and I were both a big fan of this Matthew Perry vehicle. He is a hapless architect who meets the hot Salma Hayek waiting outside of a bathroom in a Mexican restaurant and, of course, has sex with her that night. Later when she shows up pregnant they decide that instead of just paying her alimony, like in real life, they are going to get married and raise this kid together. So they adorably try to mesh their culture and long distance lives. His love of Gray’s Papaya actually caused my sister and I to look all over for one once while were were visiting NYC but we gave up when we could only find Papaya King.

In & Out (1997) (not currently available)
A drama teacher questions his sexuality during his engagement to a woman when a former student outwittingly outs him. In & Out has always gotten a bad rap because it came out in the late ’90s so people have always said that it was ridiculous that the lead character (played by the always amazing Kevin Kline) is only now, realizing that he is gay even though he is older. This is because people wrongly assume that everywhere is like NYC and LA but it’s not. Gay people in my small town freaking hide most of the time. That being said there is definitely some silly, ridiculous stuff in this but it’s a ’90s comedy, what do you expect? The film costars Tom Selleck, Joan Cusack, Matt Dillon, Debbie Reynolds and Lauren Ambrose.

Sprung (1996) (not currently available)
I haven’t watched this movie in a long time but I remember thinking that it is odd, cute and funny. It’s about dating and the differences between men and women. The film stars Tisha Campbell-Martin.

One Fine Day (1996) (not currently available)
Ah, the ’90s when George Clooney was trying to get into our panties with his smile, instead of trying to bore us to tears by teaching us things we don’t care about. It’s a movie about two single, professional parents who meet through their children. The film also stars Michelle Pfeiffer.

I.Q. (1994) (not currently available)
I’ve always been fond of I.Q. despite it’s PGness and it having to do with Einstein (as played by Walter Matthau). Meg Ryan plays the niece of Einstein and Tim Robbins is the dim cutie that Einstein tries to get her together with.

I Love You To Death (1990) (not currently available)
I Love You To Death works because of the huge ensemble cast, Kevin Kline, Tracey Ullman, River Phoenix, William Hurt, Keanu Reeves, Victoria Jackson and Heather Graham. Kevin Kline character is a cheating jerk who runs a pizza parlor. His wife is sick of his cheating and wants him dead. Luckily she doesn’t have to try to do this all on her own since River Phoenix’s character is head over heels about her.

Loverboy (1989) (not currently available)
It’s great that they have this streaming because Loverboy is my favorite young Patrick Dempsey movie. If you only have time to watch one film about a young, gigolo pizza boy this is your movie. The film costars Kate Jackson, Dylan Walsh, Kirsite Alley and Carrie Fisher.

When Harry Met Sally (1989) (not currently available)
“How long do you like to be held after sex? All night, right? See, that’s your problem. Somewhere between 30 seconds and all night is your problem.
“I don’t have a problem.”
“Yes, you do.”

This is a true classic and I’m still a little surprised that you can actually find it via Netflix Streaming. Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal star in Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron’s flick about a couple of people who seemingly by kismet meet repeatedly until they give in and become friends. Then they debate whether or not men and women can even be friends without sex but they think that they won’t have to worry about that with each other. As a cynic I’ve always identified with Crystal’s character over Ryan’s. I usually watch this movie at least once a year. I honestly think this would be a perfect movie if none of the real life couple interviews were interjected every once in a while. They are too cheesy and ruin the flow of the film. Carrie Fisher costars.

Something Wild (1986) (not currently available)
Something Wild is totally quirky. Melanie Griffith is this great ‘I don’t give a fuck’ type of character who gets Jeff Daniels to go with her back to her hometown for a reunion. Both of them are liars but really likable. Ray Liotta costars as her asshole ex whose character is even named Ray.

The Pick-up Artist (1987) (not currently available)
Robert Downey Jr’s career has undergone many transformations. This was back in his ‘I’m a suave leading man’ phase. He is a a real horn dogging guy who decides to change when he meets the complicated, interesting Randy (played by Molly Ringwald). When the actual plot of trying to get needed money for something kicks in I lost some of my enthusiasm but you do get a cute, young Downey Jr. The film costars Dennis Hopper, Danny Aiello, Harvey Keitel and Victoria Jackson.

The Prince and the Showgirl (1957) (not currently available)
This is one of my favorite Marilyn Monroe films. The movie is about exactly what the title says. Monroe is a showgirl that a prince (as played by Laurence Olivier) is pursuing. Olivier was also the director and producer of the film and Monroe drove him nuts.

Feel free to add the titles of your romantic comedies favorites that are on streaming as a comment and check out the current comments for suggestions from other Netflix viewers. As you can see from this post Netflix has lost the rights to many great films so we’d really love your input.

There are a lot of good romance flicks out there that I would recommend buying too.

I have a penchant for goofy sex comedies so I’m sure that some of you do too. Netflix calls them Late Night Comedies. So in the spirit of my last Netflix Streaming post on horror movies I decided to list some of these fun flicks for you to check out. Simply click on the title of the movie to be whisked away and watch it right now. Ah, the joys of Netflix Streaming, getting it right now.

American Pie Presents: Beta House (2007) (Not Currently Available)

American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006) (Not Currently Available)

American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005)


Faces You Can Trust

“Gentlemen, it’s Friday afternoon we’ve got a full tank of gas, a quarter ounce of weed, 3 cases of beer, a 10 pound tank of nitrous, we’re under age”-Naked Mile

I was one of those people who initially avoided the American Pie direct to DVD releases like the plague. I had loved the original trilogy (well 2 wasn’t as strong but American Wedding is highly underrated) but I thought these would just be crude and not funny at all. While they definitely have less heart than the originals they are fuckin’ funny. Netflix is definitely the way to catch these. Don’t watch them on Comedy Central, all the crazy shit is edited out. Of course the one unifying character in all of these movies is Eugene Levy as wise old Mr. Noah Levenstein (Jim’s father in the original trilogy) because no one gets more snatch than Eugene Levy. Another common point of interest is that many times the challenge is a drinking contest, which is definitely my favorite type of contest.

The ‘plot’ of Band Camp is that Stifler’s younger brother goes to band camp. Naked Mile is about the black sheep of the Stifler family who just cannot get laid. He and his friends decide to participate in the Naked Mile (which is, of course, a marathon that you run naked). This movie teaches lots of important lessons like that girls really like when guys have permanent raging hard ons. Both Naked Mile and Beta House feature Steve Talley as Dwight Stifler who is really funny. Naked Mile features a frat that is full of really talented, horndogging midgets (sorry PC shit is not applicable to this post) and Beta House features the geek frat.

FYI: The newest film from 2009 is Book of Love which is not available on streaming but probably will be in the future. American Pie Reunion starring the original cast will be released in 2012.
Unrated (all 3 films)

Revenge of the Nerds (1984) (Not Currently Available)

“Are all nerds as good as you?”
“How come?”
“Cause all Jocks ever think about is sports, all we ever think about is sex”
The classic college comedy about a nerd fraternity that goes up against a jock fraternity.
Rated R for adult content, adult language and brief nudity.


Finding Bliss (2009)
This film is a little bit too sweet for the genre but still good. Leelee Sobieski stars as a virgin, wannable filmmaker who can only get work at a porn studio, which she considers beneath her. Of course she falls for a guy. Plus there are a lot of jokes about porn. The film costars Kristen Johnston, Jamie Kennedy, Denise Richards and Matthew Davis.
Rated R-Strong sexual content including graphic dialogue and nudity and language.

I Want Candy (2007)
I probably wouldn’t have given this movie a shot but Carmen Electra has a small role in it. The film is about 2 British film students who think they have talked their way into the movie business only to find out that it’s actually the adult movie business, cripes. It takes 15 or 20 minutes for the film to pick up but then it gets fun.
Rated R-Sexual content and language

The Amateurs (2005)
“For half a dozen guys unloading on you so you look like a melted candle today we will gladly pay you on Tuesday. I don’t know who’s gonna go for that one”

Jeff Bridges is a loser (it’s a movie, so this is entirely possible in this universe) who is broke and feels like a schmuck in front of his son. Obviously the only way to get out of this hole is to get the entire town who is also down on their luck to help him make an amateur porno. Luckily who knows someone who works at a video store (Patrick Fugit, Almost Famous) so this is just a step away from happening. Ted Danson, Tim Blake Nelson, Joe Pantoliano, Lauren Graham and Jeanne Tripplehorn costar.
Rated R-Sexual content and language


A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011)

“Commemorative Labor Day orgy t-shirts.”

This movie has only been available to view by the general public for less than a year and I’ve already watched it at least a handful of times. Yes, it’s that good. It’s about a group of old friends who gather yearly for big blowout theme parties. When this years seems that it may be their last they decide to get down with one last over the top bash, an ORGY! This hilarious movie actually takes you through the planning and execution of said orgy. The immensely talented cast includes Jason Sudeikis, Lake Bell, Nick Kroll, Tyler Labine, Martin Starr, Will Forte, Lucy Punch, Lindsay Sloane and Leslie Bibb.
Rated R for pervasive strong sexual content, graphic nudity and language.

The Long Weekend (2005)

Chris Klein and Brendan Fehr star in this comedy about two bros, one a type A workaholic and the other a total DOG.
Rated R for pervasive strong and crude sexual content, gross out humor, language and brief drug use.

The Sweetest Thing (2002)

“Don’t worry about returning the favor. Men don’t really like oral sex…it’s just a bad rumor that was started sometime in the ’50s.”

This is definitely one of my favorite dirty comedies. It stars the awesome trio of Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate and Selma Blair playing besties. Diaz & Applegate are total players until Diaz falls for the totally adorable Thomas Jane at a night club. This sets Diaz and Applegate on a road trip to see if she kinda might ya know like have a crush on him. Awesome, WATCH IT NOW!

Not Another Teen Movie (2001)

“You haven’t spoken to me in, like, four years Jake.”
“Actually, it’s more like six, because the time you’re referring to when we were standing in line at that movie theater, I was actually saying “hey” to the person right behind you.”

This is one of those flicks that I can’t believe some people haven’t seen yet. It’s a spoof of popular ’90s teen sex comedies and John Hughes teen movies. The frickin awesome cast includes Chris Evans, Eric Christian Olsen, Chyler Leigh, Mia Kirshner, Jaime Pressly, Sam Huntington, Samm Levine and Cerina Vincent.
Rated R

Tomcats (2001)

Tomcats is one of my favorite comedies. I’ve watched it about a billion times. Jerry O’Connell is a totally unlucky guy who ends up being hugely in debt to a casino after gambling with his best bud (Horatio Sanz). A crazy bet that all of the friends agreed to years ago, the last single man wins the dough, could bail him out. All he has to do is get Shannon Elizabeth to make Jake Busey (total poon hound) fall for her. Jaime Pressly and Bill Maher costar.
Rated R for strong sexual content including dialogue and language.
Love Stinks (1999)

“You’ve put me off women. I’m gay now. And not just a little gay, full on Liberace gay.”
When a man and woman meet at a friend’s wedding they start dating. It goes well until she tries to force him into marriage. The movie stars French Stewart, Bridgette Wilson, Bill Bellamy, Tyra Banks and Jason Bateman.
Rated R for language and sexual content.

Not Currently Available

Dirty Love (2005) (Not Currently Available)
“You can try a bunch of cheesy lines on my but why bother? What I’m telling you is no matter what you do, you’re gonna get laid.”
“I don’t get it.”

I don’t want to oversell it but this is definitely one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen and you may not have even heard of it. I’ve been a subscriber to Maxim for years so months before the DVD release I kept seeing the full pages ads for this new Jenny McCarthy movie. As a fan of McCarthy I had to check it out. McCarthy is a photographer who breaks up with her narcissistic boyfriend and then tries to get through the breakup. The film was directed, on a low (at times, no) budget, by McCarthy’s then husband John Mallory Asher (Gary on the TV version of Weird Science, the best version!) and written by McCarthy. The craziest thing about this movie is that is has a lot of funny, but similar to real life things in it. Except for the bass, I’m hoping that’s never happened to anyone. The film costars Carmen Electra (hell yes!) and Eddie Kaye Thomas.

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard (2009) (Not Currently Available)

As I mentioned in my post My Top Movies of 09 this Jeremy Piven comedy wasn’t as high profile as it should have been. He plays the sort of jerky character he’s perfected on Entourage who specializes in keeping businesses from going under with huge sales extravaganzas, not for philanthropy reasons but for a hefty price. The cast includes Ving Rhames, Craig Robinson, Rob Riggle and Jordana Spiro (My Boys). I would recommend this if you are a fan of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
Rated R-Sexual content, nudity, pervasive language and some drug material

Still Waiting (2009) (Not Currently Available)

Still Waiting is the hilarious sequel to the flick Waiting. Some minor characters from the first film are back in this one. One really interesting turn was that they took Calvin from the first film (really meek, afraid to pee in public restrooms) and made him into a sleazy douche. the plot is about the competition between Shenaniganz and another restaurant, the Ta-Ta’s Wing Shack.
Rated R for strong crude and sexual content throughout including graphic dialogue, and for language, nudity and drug use.

Sex Drive (2008) (Not Currently Available)
This is one of those loser teen travels cross country to have sex with a girl movies that always includes some laughs. Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine) costars and there is a weird cameo by Seth Green on the joys of Rumspringa.
Unrated-Strong crude and sexual content, nudity, language, some drug and alcohol use

A Dirty Shame (2004) (Not Currently Available)
This is definitely one of the dirtier John Waters movies. It’s about everyone exploring their weird, gross fetishes. It is of course set in Baltimore and has an odd religious element. The film stars Tracey Ullman, Johnny Knoxville, Selma Blair and Chris Isaak.
Rated NC-17-Pervasive sexual content

Freshman Orientation (2004) (Not Currently Available)
This is not what I would call a good movie, even by sex comedy standards. However you get Sam Huntington (Jam in Detroit Rock City, a werewolf on Being Human) being a dick who decides to act gay for a chick. If you are a fan of his you would definitely want to check it out as a guilty pleasure. Plus there are some weird, fun things here, like John Goodman as the owner of a gay bar who shows him the ropes & a gay makeover montage!
Rated R-Strong sexual content, language and some drug use.

Fast Food
(1989) (Not Currently Available)
College kids accidentally invent a sauce for hamburgers that makes everyone who eats it horny & hilarity ensues. Plus you get Jim Varney (Ernest) playing a jerk.
Rated PG-13

Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) (Not Currently Available)

“Come on, do I really gotta to be the asshole that says we got in this thing and went back in time?”
“It must be some kind of hot tub time machine.”

Yes, I’ve mentioned this movie quite often but I just love it so much. It’s about a group of friends who want to relive their youth at a ski resort. A magic hot tub lets them return to the 80s and they decide if they will make the same choices or not. The movie stars John Cusack, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and Crispin Glover. It’s so freaking awesome.
Rated R for adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually oriented nudity, and drug abuse.

Sex and Death 101 (2007) (Not Currently Available)

For a sex comedy starring the yummy Simon Baker and Winona Ryder this movie has a really bum rap. I notice people who (most likely) haven’t even watched it going out of their way to insult it. They lump it into Winona Ryder’s recent movies that they call awful (when most, like this, are pretty good, who insults The Ten, really?). Anyway Baker plays a real cad. He gets emailed a list of all of his past and future sexual conquests and now finds getting busy even easier. Of course it can’t all be easily sailing, that’s where the comedy comes in. He also finds out that after he does the last woman on the list he will die.
Rated R for adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually oriented nudity and drug abuse.

Wedding Daze (aka The Pleasure of Your Company, The Next Girl I See) (2007) (Not Currently Available)
Jason Biggs plays another in a line of too nice guys (American Pie, Loser, My Best Friend’s Girl) but I think this typecasting is okay because he is adorable and does it so well. He impulsively proposes to a waitress after losing his girlfriend and the waitress actually accepts because she has her own problems that she wants out of. The awesome Isla Fisher plays the girl in question. Of course many hijinx ensue. The film was written and directed by Michael Ian Black. You will never think of a yarmulke the same way again.
Rated R-Sexual content and some language.

Buying the Cow (2002) (Not Currently Available)
“Wow! A dollar! Now I can quit stripping, go back to vet school, and save my sick pony.”

This is definitely an overlooked gem. If you are also a huge fan of Tomcats you will love this too. Jerry O’Connell stars as a guy who is getting the marriage ultimatum, you know, marry me or it’s over. His girlfriend, of course, leaves town for work at this important time so he can have time to run around and figure things out. This includes trying to find someone that he has built up in his mind as “the one”. His guys friends (Bill Bellamy and Ryan Reynolds) offer lots of support at strip clubs (where since it’s a movie, Alyssa Milano works but doesn’t get naked) and the like. This is also a movie in which Ryan Reynolds performs “the tuck”, questions his sexuality and basically makes an ass of himself (it’s glorious).
Rated R-Sexual content, nudity and language.

posted by on Halloween, Movies/TV, Netflix Streaming




NOTE: This was the first Netflix post that I ever wrote (that’s why the format/tone is different). Netflix has changed so much since then that much of this isn’t applicable. I’m currently writing a new series of horror posts, all of which will be linked to at the top of this page. I’m not changing most of this particular post though.

Man, that’s an unwieldy title. I was going to write a post about my all time favorite horror movies, which I may still do, but then I thought about how I’m an instant gratification kind of girl. I’ve read lots of lists like that online and I usually skim them and then move on because that’s that. This way you can go check these out immediately. Just click the titles to be whisked away to the movies.


Return of the Living Dead 2 (1988) (not currently available)
The Return of the Living Dead is amazing and also sometimes available on streaming. I didn’t even know until a couple of years ago about this pseudo sequel to that movie. It’s even more goofy. It stars many of the same actors from the other film but in completely different roles.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)
This is definitely a cheesy favorite from my childhood. While it seems (to me anyway) that being afraid of clowns in general is ridiculous there is something very evil about the ones in this Chiodos Brothers flick. They look totally awesome too. There is a reason that over 20 years after the films release you can buy the masks in some Halloween stores.

Pin (1988) (not currently available)
A creepy movie about a guy who grows up thinking a dummy is real. Totally creeped me out as a kid.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) (Not Currently Available)
“All I want to do is graduate from high school, go to Europe, marry Christian Slater, and die. Now it may not sound too great to a sconehead like you, but I think it’s swell. And you come along and tell me I’m a member of the hairy mole club so you can throw things at me?”

I was a huge fan of the original movie growing up. It’s funny and oh, so 90s. Keep your eyes out for Paul Reubens’ awesome scene. Stars Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Luke Perry and David Arquette.

Witchboard 3: The Possession (1995) (Not Currently Available)

I always rented rated R horror movies for my sleepovers from about ages 10-14. I would just pick out whatever looked the most disgusting/disturbing. I remember watching these Witchboard movies and thinking they were fucked up. Oh and we always used to play with Ouija boards. The trailer looks sufficiently awful.

The Dead Hate the Living (2000) (Not Currently Available)
I read an article about the making of this low budget flick years ago in Fangoria. It’s surprisingly good. It’s about real horror being unleashed on the set of a no budget horror movie.

Dead and Breakfast (2004) (Not Currently Available)
This is goofy zombie movie with singing and Jeremy Sisto, David Carradine and Diedrich Bader.

Stan Helsing (2009) (Not Currently Available)
So, this is not what I would call a good movie but it’s so bad I found it fun. It’s in the vein of the Scary Movie series. It stars Kenan Thompson and Diora Baird. Don’t forget to do the drinking game.


Yes, I’m a big Bruce Campbell fan so I’ve seen almost everything he’s been in.

The Evil Dead (1981)
I’m sure if you are a horror movie buff you’ve already seen this but here goes. Yes, this was the movie that Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell made in a sort act of movie passion through grit and determination. You can read all about it in his book, If Chins Could Kill. Plot? You know, teens, woods, demons. I would love to be able to have Army of Darkness up here which is my favorite of the 3 Evil Dead movies but it isn’t currently streaming.

Alien Apocalypse (2005) (not currently available)
This was a Sci-Fi channel movie starring Bruce and Renee O’Connor. It was a sort of giant bug take on Planet of the Apes. It’s regarded as a really bad movie and even Bruce Campbell looked at me like I was nuts when I cheered at it’s mention at a convention one time. There is some funny stuff here. Plus you get to see Autolycus kiss Gabrielle!

Man with the Screaming Brain (2005) (not currently available)
Over the top, filmed in Bulgaria and co-starring Ted Raimi. I don’t think I need to explain the plot, just look at the picture.

My Name Is Bruce (2007) (not currently available)
This is a film starring a satirized version of Campbell himself where he has to be a real hero. I am a fan but it’s best for those who are big BC fans because of the in jokes and general feel.

Yes, Clare Kramer, of Buffy fame has done a couple of decent horror movies.

The Thirst (2006) (not currently available) (Not Currently Available)
A film about drug addicts who become blood addicts. Definitely original. Also stars Adam Baldwin, Jeremy Sister, Matt Keeslar and Tom Lenk.

The Gravedancers (2006) (not currently available)
This film was part of the After Dark Horrorfest series (many which were terrible). Old friends return home for the funeral of one of their gang. They get drunk, do something stupid and horror ensues. Also stars Dominic Purcell.


Night of the Living Dead (1968) (Not Currently Available)
Although Romero recently lost his way since moving to Canada he used to be a genius. No matter how many times I see the granddaddy of zombie movies if it’s on TV I can’t turn it off. Of course the creepiness factor was upped by the factor that for much of my life I’ve lived about an hour and a half from where it was filmed and down the street from an old cemetery. My other Romero favorites are Land of the Dead and Diary of the Dead.

The Exorcist (1973) (not currently available)
A little girl is possessed and acts wretched. I didn’t watch this until the theatrical re-release in 2000 because it seemed lame to me. Of course I got it after I saw it. My mother hates horror movies and cites this as one of the reasons why. She said my father took her to see it on one of their first dates and she was totally grossed out.

Carrie (1976)
Carrie is about a telekinetic high school outcast who snaps. It’s definitely one of those movies that makes me uncomfortable. Stars Sissy Spacek and John Travolta.

The Amityville Horror (1979) (not currently available)
I didn’t even check out these movies until a few years ago because it didn’t seem scary to me but I was wrong. The film is based on a true story about a real haunted house. If you have a million bucks laying around and want to go insane and kill your family you can buy the real house since it was put back on the market this year. Pass on the remake with a ripped (as usual) Ryan Reynolds which was fairly bad. James Brolin stars.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)/Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994) (Both are not currently available.)
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you. / Three, four, better lock your door. / Five, six, grab your crucifix. / Seven, eight, better stay awake. / Nine, ten, never sleep again

I don’t care how many awful remakes they make Robert Englund will always be Freddy to me. There are the only 2 on streaming and they happen to be my favorites. You know Freddy is the serial killer who can only kill you in your dreams but you can’t stay awake forever. In New Nightmare the actors from the first film play versions of themselves but Freddy is tired of being fictional and comes through to the real world.

Beetlejuice (1988) (not currently available)
Yes, it’s a PG rated kid’s movie but you don’t know how cool I was when I played it at my 5th birthday (lol). But seriously Beetlejuice was awesome. Michael Keaton was spot on as this gross guy Betelgeuse who is a bio-exorcist (he exorcises the living). The film is by Tim Burton and also stars Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O’Hara and a disconcertingly hot, young and nerdy Alec Baldwin.

Child’s Play (1988)/Child’s Play 2: Chucky’s Back (1990) (The second is not currently available.)
Chucky was an ugly doll who would, pardon my French, fuck your shit up. He was actually infused with the soul of a serial killer. My favorite of the series is Bride of Chucky which is goofier.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) (not currently available)
The classic story that was true to the book and gorgeous. Gary Oldman plays Dracula to perfection. Also stars Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Cary Elwes and Anthony Hopkins.

Candyman (1992) (not currently available)
Candyman was up there with Bloody Mary in terms of carnage to our young minds back in the day.

Interview with the Vampire (1994) (Not Currently Available)
“I longed for death. I know that now. I invited it. A release from the pain of living. My invitation was open to anyone. To the whore at my side. To the pimp that followed. But it was a vampire that accepted it.”

Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Christian Slater, at their most virile, biting each other while dressed in finery, what more could a girl want? I think I watched my video of this about a million times back in the day. I’m also a huge fan of Rice’s book series. Too bad she told me on Facebook that she will never go back to writing them.

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) (not currently available)
“Oh, you got a letter? I got run over! Helen gets her hair chopped off, Julie gets a body in her trunk, and you get a letter? That’s balanced!”

Teenagers accidentally kill someone and then a year later they start getting murdered. Originally I wouldn’t have watched this movie with someone else’s eyes. It seemed to be the kind of preppy crap I abhorred. (I was a freshman in high school when it was released). I later watched it and found out it was pretty fun. It’s based on the Lois Duncan book. Duncan was popular when I was young but I gravitated more towards Christopher Pike.

Stigmata (1999) (Not Currently Available)
I have a feeling a lot of people haven’t seen this movie but I’m a big fan. Patricia Arquette stars as an atheist, hair stylist who gets the stigmata. Also stars Gabriel Byrne, Nia Long, Enrico Colantoni, Portia de Rossi and Patrick Muldoon.

Saw 6 (2009) (Not Currently Available)
Watch this and get caught up before the new Saw 7 (in 3D!) comes out this Friday. I have grown to be a big fan of this sick series about the jigsaw killer. Most people agree that the first was very good but then it becomes divided into two camps, the ones who wished they’d stopped at 1 and the other who wish they’d never stop. I used to be in the middle. I’m still not crazy about the 2nd film but otherwise I’m a pretty big fan. If you want torture porn you can always pop one of these in. I really love that Costas Mandylor became a fixture of the series as I’ve always had a thing for him. Follow one of the stars, Tanedra Howard, on twitter.
