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)
Flickchart Ranking: #694
Directed By: David Michôd

Winter’s Bone and Animal Kingdom. Both feature the dark consequences of crime and trust issues, and both are the breakout efforts of new talented directors (David Michôd and Debra Granik). But the question is which one is better?
Odds are this year, you’ve probably seen at least one Oscar nominee. Seven of the ten highest grossing films of 2010 have gained at least some nomination, and five of the ten best picture nominees have made over $100 million with two others teetering just under that mark. But with many of the nominees having excelled at the box office, there are plenty of other nominees that most haven’t even heard of that are pretty fantastic as well. So to prepare for this Sunday’s 83rd Academy Awards, here are the some of the under-ranked films nominated.
There are a ton of smaller movies on DVD and Blu-ray this week. Take a look…

Look at that win percentage! From what I hear, imagine if Scorsese was Australian and this is what you’d end up with. This movie also furthers my theory that Guy Pearce is incapable of making a bad movie.
The most anticipated week of the summer is upon us, and even though the site has been around for a long time, I firmly believe this week was the reason Flickchart was invented. While we’ve been stuck with uninspired, one-sided matchups all summer: like Dinner for Schmucks vs Charlie St. Cloud, Salt vs. Ramona & Beezus, and Inception vs The Sorcerer’s Apprentice; we finally have a slobberknocker to debate. What else but Flickchart could you possibly do with your time after paying to see The Expendables and then sneaking into Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? Nothing, that’s what.
