It’s time for the first of the month again, when Netflix unleashes a huge array of streaming goodies for all us movie lovers. Last month’s mix-up with the Netflix API relaying that Miramax movies would be released, when they actually weren’t, is being fixed with Pulp Fiction and much more coming out. Take a look:
Animal Kingdom (R | 2010)

Directors who dominate: No, I’m not talking about directors who demand complete control of everything happening on their set. Well, it’s possible I am talking about those types of directors, as the guy I’m talking about has written the screenplay for every film he’s ever directed (and has acted in most of them). Of course I am talking about the quintessentially awesome, Quentin Tarantino (Oh yes, you can bet I am going to be thinking of Q words for this entire article… are you already sick of my quips?).
When I use the phrase “directors who dominate”, I mean it in the sense of him (or her) dominating Flickchart. Tarantino is easily one of the most dominating directors on my personal Flickchart, and on Flickchart’s global rankings. Let’s take a look at where he stands:
Indiana Jones, meet Jules Winnfield. One of them fights Nazis. The other takes out the garbage for kingpin Marsellus Wallace. One of them cracks a whip, while the other is known for his quips. Both fire pistols, and both are in some strange way the chosen ones of a higher power. Rough around the edges and not above killing a few bad guys, Indiana and Jules represent the stars of this week’s Reel Rumbles match-up: Pulp Fiction vs. Raiders of the Lost Ark.
