You want to talk about one that snuck through, watch 'Motherless Brooklynn' when it comes out. One of the best movies of the year made on a shoe string budget with A list actors who did it beacuse they believed in the project and didn't care about the paycheck. This movie should be in discussions for many Oscars but I'm hearing nothing.In general - yes. But every once in a while a gem sneaks through, and by gem I mean Joker.
This is why major Hollywood productions suck, and Netflix is full of amazing stuff starring people you never heard of, produced by people you never heard of.Nobody wants to be the guy that green-lights the next big budget flop for a studio. The whole industry in Hollywood is built on self-preservation. So they stick with as you said, low hanging, bankable fruit.
I just finished this...I've lost respect for Deniro, but I try to be partial to his acting. I agree he mailed this in.Great? No. Good? Sure. It’s a different story. Sheehan was a quiet enforcer for the mob and Teamsters. The book is really good.
But Deniro is definitely mailing it in. He’s old and too busy complaining about Trump. I’m surprised he didn’t get to do some aort of long speech about how corporate guys with orange skin shouldn’t be in charge of anything. Lol
Watched “The Confession Killer” limited series on NF last night. Awesome and fascinating how many twists this story takes.
From a crooked sheriff and Texas Rangers to a guy with an 86 IQ who murdered his mother and confessed to upwards of 600 murders all over the US. Two thumbs up on this series.
Hmm, most of Netflix's original stuff is crap. They seem to have nice cinematography but suck otherwise. Stranger Things is the exception not the rule.This is why major Hollywood productions suck, and Netflix is full of amazing stuff starring people you never heard of, produced by people you never heard of.
the Mule wasn't very good by Clint standards. I love the guy but the movie was meh.I saw The Mule on PPV a few months ago. One of the weaker Clint movies of the last 20 years. I just didn't care about his flower-loving, child-abandoning personality. He seemed like an old version of the dude in Bridges of Madison County. LOL
The new Ryan Reynolds movie comes out today on NF.
OOOHHH!!!!!! I'm 1/2 thru the Belichick/Saban thing on HBO. Fascinating stuff. Only about 80 minutes but very interesting. Old footage of Beli back in Cleveland. He's so young. And damn. He looks like he could still bench press the offensive line if required. Pam Anderson wishes for pecs like that. LOL
What he said. Unbelievable what the Texas Rangers and others did to "solve" cases... WTF?
And this guy may have had an IQ of 86 but he had an incredible memory for some things. And that helped him get away with so many false confessions.
Piven. Reynolds. Now that would be a good movie.
Saw 6 whatever last night. Decent for an action flick. Think FastFurious or something like that. Not an award winner but decent.
What I want to know is how Blake Lively puts up with his crap 24/7. It’s funny in pieces but damn.
They should remake Waiting and have him in a Deadpool costume. I mean Jeremy Piven was that guy 25 years ago but he evolved.
I was speaking of their content, not their original productions.Hmm, most of Netflix's original stuff is crap. They seem to have nice cinematography but suck otherwise. Stranger Things is the exception not the rule.
