Has this become the general ‘stuff on Netflix’ thread? I haven’t seen any other threads with action in them. If so, got a couple of things.
First, you guys might be all over this, but there is a website I occasionally use that shows what’s new on Netflix. It’s called, strangely enough, What’s New On Netflix.
Secondly, there are 2 new sci fi movies out that seem interesting to me, but I’ve not seen either. Anyone caught them? One is a Netflix original, called ARQ, which seems sort of like a take on Source Code (guy repeats day over and over, tries to change things). If that sounds interesting I’d say don’t watch the trailer, because I felt it was a little spoilery. The second is called Black Road which sounds interesting but has gotten moderately poor reviews.(seems as though it’s set in a mildly dystopian near future, though they may have achieved that effect by just filming where there aren’t any other people around… so perhaps low-budget?).
Anyway, that’s my current two cents.
As a postscript, I gotta say Netflix is certainly churning out the originals now. It’s gone from a big deal press release type of thing to a seemingly large part of their content. Seems that as a strategy of protecting them from the financial tyranny of the studios, it appears to be working out.
