Netflix Instant Watch September Preview

31 Aug


Before we begin, here are a few of the highlights from August’s Netflix Instant releases that you may have missed:
  • super 8Haywire¬†- such a wonderfully underrated little action flick with a great cast
  • Traffic¬†- more greatness from Soderbergh
  • Dark Tide¬†- sure it was DTV, but a movie with Halle Berry in a bikini can’t be all that bad
  • Super 8¬†- the best movie (that I saw) of 2011
  • The Expendables¬†- so much less fun than it should have been
  • Piranha¬†- so much more fun than it had any right to be
  • captain americaBattle Royale¬†- The Hunger Games but far more intense
  • Wilfred¬†- hilarious TV show starring Elijah Wood and a man in a dog suit
  • Captain America¬†- see more of what came before The Avengers
  • God Bless America¬†- Bobcat Goldthwait continues to be one of the most unique filmmakers working today
  • ESPN’s 30 for 30 series¬†- if you’re a fan of sports or documentaries, you should seek these out

Hold on to your butts, because we’re in for a HUGE month:

    Two more lesser-known but worthy films I’d recommend coming in September are The Bad Intentions, coming September 1, and Headhunters, coming September 27.

    The Bad Intentions is a really dark comedy from Peru about a little girl who is convinced that she is going to die on the day her little brother is born. Along the same lines as Pan’s Labyrinth, though it’s admittedly not nearly as good. Similar tone, though.

    Headhunters was one of my favorite festival films last year, a Norwegian thriller about a high level business recruiter who moonlights as an art thief – until he recruits and heists the wrong guy and ends up on the run for his life. It’s really incredibly good, and already due for an American remake, so check out the original first.

      Those sound pretty fantastic! (I had to cut it off around 70 though before my fingers fell off)

      I do the same thing when I do Netflix Instant posts on my blog (haven’t done it for a couple of months, though – glad there’s this post to fall back on!) – there’s only so many you can include!

    • Travis Easton

      I’d been interested in Headhunters, so I may have to subscribe to Netflix again at the end of the month.

    Once Upon a Time in Anatolia topped a lot “best of” lists for the art house crowd last year. I haven’t watched it but it looks interesting.

      It’s a reaaaaaaaally slow burn, so just be prepared for that when you watch it. I ended up liking it quite a bit, and there’s a lot of very dry humor in it, which pleased me. But yeah, it’s super-slow.
